If you’re searching for a way to achieve a more youthful appearance, dermal fillers have a lot to offer. These popular injectable treatments are available under the care of board-certified obstetrician and gynecologist Dr. Meryl E. Kahan, MD, at SheMD, a practice convenient to residents of the Little Neck and Douglaston neighborhoods of Queens, New York City, New York, in addition to the Great Neck area of Nassau County. Booking a visit online or by phone is a great place to begin exploring these treatments.
Dermal fillers are injectable substances that work to replace or enhance your facial volume. Lost volume is a leading cause of visible aging. During your younger years, a thick layer of collagen plumps your skin and creates the rounded contouring associated with youth.
As the years pass, you lose a considerable amount of collagen. Without that natural padding, your skin begins to sag and pool into folds, lines, and wrinkles. On its own, your body won’t produce new collagen.
Dermal fillers restore a more youthful appearance by smoothing skin and rounding your facial contouring.
There are several different dermal fillers to choose from, each designed for use in specific areas. Many fillers are made of a synthetic form of hyaluronic acid, a substance found naturally in your skin.
Dermal fillers have a gel-like consistency. Thicker fillers are great for smoothing deep lines around your nose, mouth, and chin. Thinner formulations are a perfect solution for areas like crow’s feet, vertical lip lines, and other smaller lines and wrinkles.
There are even fillers created to plump your lips or enhance your lip line. Fillers are also great for smoothing out the backs of your hands, an area that often shows age even before your face.
Not only do dermal fillers create immediate results, but research shows that fillers also prompt your body to create new natural collagen, which has effects that last even after your body absorbs the filler material.
A liquid face lift is a term used to refer to a combination of dermal fillers and neurotoxin injectables like Dysport® or Botox®. In the hands of a skilled medical professional like Dr. Kahan, these treatments can create impressive results.
A liquid face lift offers the chance to temporarily turn back the hands of time. Many people prefer injectables to plastic surgery because of the lower risk of complications and also because there is no significant downtime required when you choose a liquid face lift.
