Understanding the Benefits of Dermal Fillers

The natural aging process brings on many changes—and some of the most obvious are within the skin. Over time, you may notice that your skin has started to develop lines or wrinkles. It may lose volume and become less elastic, too.

While these are all parts of the aging process, you can also combat them with dermal fillers, a popular treatment designed to give skin a plumper, more youthful appearance. Here at Vargas Face and Skin, we offer a variety of dermal fillers—and we’re here to show you the benefits of this treatment. Read below to learn more about how dermal fillers can help you fight the signs of aging.

What is Dermal Filler Treatment?

Dermal filler treatments are nonsurgical injections designed to restore volume to your face, smoothing out fine lines and wrinkles. As part of the aging process, the human body begins to lose collagen, which results in skin losing volume and becoming thinner.

That’s why people often choose to get dermal fillers. These fillers can help you create a more youthful look or enhance certain facial features. It’s an elective procedure that your provider can usually do in half an hour or less—and even better, recovery time is minimal. You should be able to see immediate results, which can last for months or even years, depending on the types of fillers used and the locations in which they’re injected.

The Benefits of Dermal Fillers

Smoothing Lines and Wrinkles

The biggest benefit of dermal fillers is that they can help minimize the signs of aging. As mentioned, the skin naturally begins to sag over time as it loses collagen, which results in a loss of volume and elasticity. This process can create small folds and lines around the nose, mouth, eyes, and elsewhere.

Dermal fillers injected beneath the skin in these areas help to plump up the skin, smoothing out any lines. Fillers like Restylane Lyft featuring hyaluronic acid can have even greater benefits. Hyaluronic acid is a natural humectant that can help draw moisture to injected areas, further helping your skin fight the signs of aging. 

Plump Up Your Lips

Thinning lips are another normal part of the aging process. Like fine lines and wrinkles, this process is caused by loss of skin volume and other changes in your skin’s texture. As lips thin with age, you may also start to notice more pronounced vertical lip lines.

This is another area where dermal fillers can help. Products like Juvederm can be injected into the lips as well as areas around the mouth to give you a plumper, fuller look that can last up to six to nine months.

Stimulate Collagen Production

We’ve talked about how skin produces less collagen as you age and how that collagen loss results in sagging and less volume, which leads to wrinkles. But what you may not yet know is that some dermal fillers can actually help to stimulate collagen production within the skin. 

For example, Restylane is a popular injectable designed to temporarily smooth out the look of wrinkles and lines. However, in addition to providing an immediate boost for your skin, it also induces collagen production, which gives skin the structural support it needs to stay firm.

Diminish the Look of Scars

Not all scars respond well to dermal filler treatments, but in certain instances, you can use fillers to reduce the look of scarring. The key is whether the scar is a raised one or whether it’s an atrophic scar, which has a sunken appearance. While dermal fillers are not effective for raised scars, they can help quite a lot with atrophic scars (like those caused by chickenpox or acne). Your provider can inject fillers beneath the skin to lift and smooth the scar, which can make it much less noticeable.

Boost Your Confidence

The choice to get dermal fillers isn’t just about smoothing out skin or enhancing certain facial features. For many, this treatment is a fantastic way to boost confidence, either by helping to restore a look of youthful vitality or by minimizing the look of acne scarring or other atrophic scars that have proven bothersome over time. 

Ultimately, it’s all about doing what helps you look and feel your absolute best—and dermal fillers are an accessible way to get results without invasive procedures or long recovery times.

Achieve Natural-Looking Results With Minimal Downtime.

Dermal fillers are sometimes referred to as the “lunchtime facelift,” and that’s because the results can be amazing—without the need for surgery or long recovery times. The procedure is relatively simple: your provider will use a thin needle to inject the fillers beneath your skin. You’ll feel a small pinch or sting, but beyond that, the injections should be relatively painless. While some sessions can take up to an hour for injections in multiple areas, most people have their fillers done in half an hour or less.

As for recovery, most people see natural-looking results right away, although they should keep in mind that everyone is different, which means some people may need to wait a little while to see results. In most cases, you’ll be able to resume your normal life directly after the appointment, though some people may experience bruising, discomfort, or swelling that fades within a few days of the injections.
