If the skin on your face has started to look aged and careworn, it may be affecting your self-confidence. Because of this, you may be looking at treatment options for getting rid of wrinkles and giving your skin a more youthful appearance.
For a minimally invasive treatment that will plump out your skin and reduce the lines on your face, you may have considered getting dermal fillers. Besides filling out the wrinkles, there are a couple of other benefits of getting dermal filler injections to help improve the appearance of your face's aging skin.
1. Hyaluronic Acid in the Fillers Stimulates Your Body's Natural Production of Elastin and Collagen
One benefit of getting the injections is that they stimulate your body's natural ability to produce elastin and collagen. These chemicals help to keep your skin looking firm while allowing it to bounce back to its original shape.
As you age, the production of both of these natural chemicals in your body starts to dwindle. However, the hyaluronic acid contained in dermal fillers helps to stimulate their production, assisting the injections with filling out the wrinkles and giving your face a smoother, more youthful appearance.
2. Dermal Fillers Help to Minimize the Appearance of Facial Imperfections Such as Acne Scars
Another benefit of getting dermal filler injections is that they help to minimize the appearance of facial imperfections. Along with wrinkles, imperfections such as acne scars will become more prominent because of the lack of collagen and decreased elastin that helps to stretch the skin so that it appears smooth when you are younger.
When dermal fillers are injected into the subcutaneous tissue just below your skin, the plumping effect helps to remove the wrinkles, and at the same time, tighten your skin to help reduce the appearance of scars and imperfections. Their appearance is further reduced by the production of elastin and collagen discussed in the previous section to give your face an overall smoother appearance.
Besides plumping up the skin and filling in your facial wrinkles, dermal fillers contain hyaluronic acid that stimulates your body's production of elastin and collagen to improve the appearance of your skin. This plumping of the skin also helps to minimize the appearance of such imperfections as old acne scars.
