Many of our patients living in the San Antonio area find themselves dealing with common skin problems like wrinkles and aging skin. These types of skin complaints are usually due to factors like genetics, environmental damage, or extreme weight loss. Skin that has lost volume develops wrinkles more readily than normal skin does. Fortunately, injectables have been developed that can safely address these issues without the need for surgery.
What Causes the Skin to Age and Lose Volume?
Other than dramatic weight loss, the most common cause of skin aging and a loss of volume involves the fact that getting older means that you do not process certain bodily substances as efficiently as you did when you were younger. These same substances also tend to break down more readily than in years past.
What are Dermal Fillers?
Dermal fillers are injectables that help restore lost facial volume to smooth away fine lines and wrinkles. The active ingredient is suspended within a smooth, flowing gel that is injected into problem areas to help turn back the clock on your aging skin.
You should notice an immediate improvement after your first treatment with dermal fillers and continued improvement over the following weeks. Lines and wrinkles will begin to fill in, and your face will have more thickness and volume.
Although they are impressive, your results after a treatment with dermal filler injectables are temporary. How long your results will last depends on the particular products you are being injected with, among other factors. After this time period has passed, you will require additional treatments at our med spa in San Antonio in order to maintain your results.
What Kinds of Dermal Fillers are There?
Hyaluronic acid is becoming increasingly popular as a dermal filler ingredient because it becomes depleted during the aging process and through environmental damage. This substance attracts moisture like a sponge. Each individual skin cell on your face contains hyaluronic acid and once it becomes depleted, your skin begins to dry out, lose volume, and develop wrinkles.
