The signs of ageing on our skin inevitably begin to show as we get older – fine lines around the eyes and mouth, thinning lips, and hollowness under the eyes and cheeks.
While ageing gracefully is an option, many people understandably want to restore their youthful appearance. The dermal fillers that we offer at Mola Dental are a minimally invasive way to reduce wrinkles, enhance lips, lift sagging skin, and reveal a more refreshed, vibrant look.
If you’re considering dermal fillers as an anti-ageing treatment, it helps to understand how they work and their potential benefits. Here’s an overview of what dermal fillers are, the issues they can address, and why they are an appealing option for smoothing wrinkles and restoring facial volume.
What are dermal fillers?
Dermal fillers are injectable products made from hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring substance in the skin that helps retain moisture and structure. When hyaluronic acid is injected into facial wrinkles or other areas, it provides volume, eases lines, and creates a smoother, plumper appearance. Dermal fillers are temporary, lasting 6-12 months depending on the location injected.
Popular name brand dermal fillers approved by the MHRA include Juvederm and Restylane. The smooth consistency of the gels helps the injectable formula evenly integrate into the skin tissue. Dermal fillers have become popular cosmetic treatments thanks to their minimally invasive nature, fast results, and relatively low risk of side effects.
Dermal fillers offer many benefits that make them appealing options for those seeking to rejuvenate their look. Let’s take a deeper look into some of the advantages:
Reduce wrinkles and fine lines
One of the primary uses of fillers is to reduce the appearance of facial wrinkles and creases. Tiny injections along the crease lines of the face can fill in wrinkles from the inside out.
Treatment areas include crow’s feet, smile lines around the mouth, forehead creases, and vertical lip lines. Results are immediate, providing a smoother, more line-free complexion.
Enhance lip volume
Thinning lips are a common sign of ageing. Fillers injected along the lip border or into the lips themselves add definition, structure, and a youthful plumpness to the mouth area.
The smooth gel formula creates a natural-looking enhancement. Both lip enhancement and lip augmentation help define the lip contours and restore balance to the proportions of the mouth and face.
Add volume to facial features
Volume loss in the cheeks, around the mouth, underneath the eyes, and in other facial areas leads to a sunken, worn-out appearance. Dermal fillers can replace this lost volume to help lift and contour specific zones.
Strategic injections along the cheekbones, jawline, chin and temples restore the face’s underlying structure. The added volume provides a non-surgical facelift and more defined facial features.
One of the biggest advantages of dermal fillers is the quick treatment time and minimal to no downtime. Patients can return to regular activities right after their injections.
While some temporary swelling, bruising, or tenderness may occur, it usually resolves within a few days. If any side effects do occur, they are mild and temporary. Applying ice helps reduce swelling and discomfort.
For those seeking moderate improvements without surgery, dermal fillers provide a convenient, non-invasive alternative. There is no need for anaesthesia beyond a topical numbing cream.
The treatment requires virtually no recovery time compared to a facelift and is completed right in the office. Plus, results emerge gradually for subtle, natural-looking improvements over time. This means you get all the results with less of a hassle!
