Fine lines, wrinkles, and folds on the skin are the first telltale signs of aging for many men and women. The face begins to change due to the natural process of losing collagen and elastin, which results in skin laxity. While many adults think that plastic surgery is the only option for restoring youth, many are pleasantly surprised that there are other anti-aging services available with most plastic surgery offices. Dr. Dimitrios Motakis and his team in Toronto offer a less invasive way to address fine lines and wrinkles using hyaluronic acid fillers.
How do hyaluronic acid fillers work?
While many patients are aware of injectable treatments such as Botox, hyaluronic acid fillers work differently. Also known as dermal fillers, these injectables are a gel-like substance that the doctor injects directly into the wrinkles and folds on the face. This provide immediate smoothing that can last several months before reinjection is needed for maintaining the results. Hyaluronic acid fillers are temporary but long-lasting, allowing patients to make the changes they desire without long-term commitments.
Who is a good candidate for dermal fillers?
Hyaluronic acid fillers are great for patients in their 30’s and older who notice the early signs of aging and want to maintain a youthful appearance. Most patients will find that they are ideal candidates for injections versus conventional surgeries. The cost and risks associated with surgery often result in patients interested in trying alternative treatments such as dermal fillers instead until surgery is the only option.
Can hyaluronic acid fillers be used with Botox?
Patients can combine hyaluronic acid fillers with neurotoxins such as Botox to achieve dramatic results safely and effectively. Using a combination of cosmetic injectables is sometimes referred to as a “liquid facelift” and can be a reliable way of turning back time while ensuring noticeable changes.
