Revive Your Youthful Appearance With Dermal Fillers

Revive Your Youthful Appearance With Dermal Fillers

In 2019, almost 3 million dermal filler procedures were performed in the United States, according to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons. The popularity of the procedure continues to increase, with good reason. 

Dr. Maki Rheaume and the staff at AdvancedMD Aesthetics of Atlanta, in Marietta, Georgia, often suggest dermal fillers to people who are looking for a way to restore their youthful appearance without undergoing major surgery. Dermal fillers offer numerous benefits with few risks. 

The structure of your face

Your face is composed of skin, fat, muscle, and bone. Time changes each of those components, often in ways we don’t like. Your skin loses elasticity as your body produces less elastin and collagen. 

As your skin becomes less taut, you also begin to lose muscle tone, and the fat deposits in your face can change position. Bone loss also plays a factor in the aging of your face. 

Along with all of those changes, environmental conditions can have an impact. Sun damage can accelerate the changes, for example. 

You may have larger circles beneath your eyes, loss of volume in your cheeks, wrinkles, and sagging skin. Though it’s a normal part of aging, you don’t have to live with an appearance you’re uncomfortable with. 

Dermal fillers

There are numerous dermal fillers on the market. They are approved by the FDA for specific purposes, including restoring volume and smoothing wrinkles. 

Dr. Rheaume uses high-quality products, including Versa™, which is made by Ravanesse®, and Belotero Balance®. She chooses products that you can trust. 

Dermal fillers are soft, gel-like substances. Many fillers, including those we use, contain hyaluronic acid, a substance your body naturally produces. They slowly dissolve and are absorbed by your body over time, meaning you may need another injection in six months to a year. 

What dermal fillers help

You may be wondering how dermal fillers can help you look younger. Fillers restore lost volume, which can be beneficial in several areas of your face, depending on your particular needs. 

For example, if you have deep under-eye circles, fillers can add volume and lessen their appearance. If your cheeks look more sunken than you’d prefer, fillers could help. 

Marionette lines — the lines that run from your nose to your mouth — thinning lips, and vertical lines around your lips can all be addressed using dermal fillers. By lessening the impact of aging in any of these areas, you can appear younger overall. 

If you’d like to learn more about dermal fillers and find out if they might be a good way for you to improve your appearance, schedule a consultation with Dr. Rheaume by calling or sending a message to AdvancedMD Aesthetics of Atlanta.
