What Are Dermal Fillers?

If your skin is lacking that healthy, youthful appearance and you want to regain it, a consultation with the team at Trident Dermatology in Charleston, SC can help you decide if dermal fillers are right for you.

What Are Dermal Fillers and Why Use Them?

Youth brings with it smooth, fresh, healthy-looking skin. Over time, though, exposure to the sun, lifestyle factors, environmental factors, and genetics can impact those youthful features. Additionally, the face naturally begins to lose elasticity and subcutaneous fat as people age. 

Injectable fillers are one way to address the undesirable effects of life and aging on the skin. These are treatments in which a natural or synthetic gel-like substance is injected beneath the skin. It can help to smooth out lines and wrinkles, helping you to restore your youthful appearance. 

Who Is a Good Candidate for This Treatment?

Dermal fillers are not permanent solutions. The injected substance will be absorbed into the skin over time, leading to the need for additional treatments. However, by caring for your skin, you can extend the length of time it takes for the filler substance to be absorbed. If you are not committed to taking good care of your skin, this treatment is probably not a good choice for you.
