If your face is starting to lose volume, you may want to take steps to reclaim lost fullness before the situation worsens. Using botox and dermal fillers are two of the best ways to add volume to your face. Loss of facial volume often occurs due to the natural process of aging, and dermal fillers are considered an excellent tool to volumize the face.
How dermal fillers add volume
Declining facial volume can be corrected with the use of dermal fillers such as Juvederm and Restylane. These fillers are made of hyaluronic acid, which is a substance that the body already produces.
Dermal fillers are injected into the targeted areas in miniscule amounts. When injected, fillers not only add volume, but also provide support to the overlying skin. The procedure can be done in as little as 15 minutes.
Depending on the type of filler used, the effects can last for 6-12 months. However, if you don’t like the results you get using hyaluronic fillers, the procedure can be reversed.
Benefits of using dermal fillers
- Fillers create a natural look because they fill in wrinkles and fine lines, making the skin smoother and younger.
- Dermal fillers also encourage the production of collagen, helping to revitalize and rejuvenate the face.
- No recovery time is required, so patients can resume regular activities immediately after treatment.
