As the years go by, fine lines begin to appear on your face. Your dermatologists at Trident Dermatology can help you smooth those fine lines and plump your face with dermal fillers in Charleston, SC, to preserve your youthful look.

What Are Dermal Fillers?

Dermal fillers, also known as liquid facelifts, are non-invasive cosmetic treatments that your dermatologist can inject into your skin to replace lost collagen. There are several types of dermal fillers that your dermatologist will choose from based on your specific skin needs.

For instance, your dermatologist can inject Juvederm into your skin to reduce the appearance of wrinkles. It helps tighten your skin and keep it looking radiant. On the other hand, Juvederm Voluma XC is a lot better for restoring volume. Lost cheek and chin volume due to aging can be improved by dermal fillers in Charleston, SC.

The best part about dermal fillers is how quickly you can get it done. It only takes a few minutes and you can pop into your dermatologist's office and get it done during your lunch break. Recovery time for dermal fillers is minimal too.

How Dermal Fillers Can Help You Look Younger

As you grow older, you begin to lose more collagen in your skin. Collagen loss in your skin can cause you to develop wrinkles and some degree of facial sagging. Other factors such as sun exposure and fat loss also contribute to loss of facial volume. Your dermatologist can inject dermal fillers in your:

  • Cheeks
  • Brow lines
  • Chin
  • Lips

Dermal fillers can restore the volume in your face immediately. The results last for about 6-12 months or longer, after which, a touch-up can help preserve your results.
