Fine lines, wrinkles, and folds tend to develop on the face after the age of thirty, when patients start to notice the natural loss of collagen and elastin. Skin laxity forms, causing the formation of the early signs of aging. To combat this, many patients will think that they need plastic surgery procedures such as brow lifts or facelifts to achieve a more youthful look. Fortunately, there have been many advances in the area of cosmetic dermatology and plastic surgery that allow patients to change their appearance without surgical intervention. Dr. Armen Serebrakian and his team at the Bay Area Laser Cosmetic Surgery Center may recommend the benefits of cosmetic injectables such as dermal fillers.
What are dermal fillers?
Dr. Armen Serebrakian describes dermal fillers are cosmetic injectables that are used to add volume right where it is needed—in wrinkles and folds of the face. This gel-like substance is made of an element known as hyaluronic acid and attracts water to achieve volume. Dermal fillers have been used for years, and they are FDA-approved for cosmetic purposes. With dermal fillers, patients can reduce or erase wrinkles and folds that contribute to an aged appearance, and enjoy the results for several months before reinjection and touch-up is needed. Fillers often eliminate or delay the need for plastic surgery in many adult men and women with mild to moderate aging.
What injectables are available at Bay Area Laser Cosmetic Surgery Center?
Additionally, some patients might consider other injectables available at our office, such as neuromodulators like Botox, Dysport, and Xeomin. For many individuals, combining neuromodulators with dermal fillers can provide more dramatic results. The combination of treatments is sometimes referred to as a “liquid facelift” and can offer improvements similar to surgery for mild to moderate aging skin.
