What are Dermal Fillers at IMAGE Medi-Spa Fargo?
Dermal fillers help to diminish facial lines and restore volume and fullness in the face. As we age, our faces naturally lose subcutaneous fat. The facial muscles are then working closer to the skin’s surface, so smile lines and crow’s feet become more apparent. The facial skin also stretches a bit, adding to this loss of facial volume. Other factors that affect the facial skin include sun exposure, heredity and lifestyle.
Dermal fillers can plump thin lips, enhance shallow contours, soften facial creases and wrinkles, improve the appearance of recessed scars, reconstruct contour deformities in the face, and decrease or remove the shadow of the lower lids. Dermal fillers can be very helpful in those with early signs of aging, or as an added value to those who have undergone facial rejuvenation surgery.
Who is a candidate for filler?
If you are physically healthy with realistic goals regarding your appearance, and are committed to maintaining good skin health, you may be a candidate for dermal fillers. Additionally, if you have hollow lines or wrinkles, fat loss in your face due to age or other factors, or are seeking to add volume to any aspect of your face, neck, or other body parts, fillers may be a good treatment for you.
