There is our actual age, and then, there is our biological clock which works on its own time, influencing how we age. Our skin is a mirror to our age, and over time, our face starts showing signs of ageing like fine lines, wrinkles, saggy skin, crow’s feet and the like. This is due to the loss of subcutaneous fat that gives the skin its volume and plumpness that make it look youthful. Apart from these, other factors like excessive sun exposure, the wrong choice of foods and beverages, inadequate sleep and even hereditary factors can cause our skin to age prematurely.
The good news is that it is possible to turn back the clock on ageing, and restore our skin to its softer, smoother, more youthful avatar. Dermal fillers is one of the most popular anti-ageing treatments today, and you can avail this at our skin clinic in Melbourne.
Understanding dermal fillers
Dermal fillers are a safe and effective way to restore the skin’s volume, hydration and elasticity, so as to add more beauty to the face. They entail the injection of a soft gel into the skin, to give it more “fullness”. You could use them to smooth out under-eye crow’s feet, strong laugh lines or forehead creases, sunken cheeks, sagging jawline, deep acne scars and other types of facial wrinkles. These are also used to add more volume to thinning lips.
The most important thing to understand here is that dermal fillers are not the same as Botox fillers, which freeze the muscles instead of smoothening out the skin. At Victorian Laser & Skin Clinic, we use naturally occurring substances as dermal fillers, that boost the skin’s ability to fight ageing. The best part about using naturally derived fillers is the fact that they pose no risk to the body, and gradually break down over time, without leaving any traces of foreign waste behind.
Which conditions can be improved with dermal fillers?
Dermal fillers are pretty versatile in their uses, as we’ve already seen, and can-do wonders to contour your face and bring back a fresh feel to it. We have a lot of patients coming in for dermal fillers for a variety of conditions, like:
- Smoothening fine lines, wrinkles and volume-loss
- Restoring fullness and volume to sunken or sagging cheeks
- Smoothening out puffy under-eye bags and tear troughs
- Making lips look fuller and luscious
- Restoring firmness to the chin and jawline so that they look more defined
- Filling up uneven acne scars for a smoother skin
The advantages over other types of cosmetic treatments
Dermal fillers are known to be quick, safe and gentle, which are the key reasons for their popularity. But this isn’t it. You can often see results in a single session, and you don’t need any downtime as there are minimal side effects. Unlike some other treatments, these are almost painless as a very fine needle is used for injections. The natural substances used in the fillers also reduce risk of allergies or irritation. Depending upon the location of the filler, the results can last anywhere between six months to a couple of years.
All of these make dermal fillers an ideal choice for those looking for long lasting results without side effects. At Victorian Laser & Skin Clinic in Melbourne, we have been witness to many successful and happy cases with dermal fillers, where our clients leave us looking younger, fresher, more beautiful and confident. We would love to have you experience renewed youthfulness, and you can come by for a no-obligation consultation.
