Our skin changes over time. Not only does the environment in which we work and play have an impact on the aging process, but other factors can also result in the development of fine lines and wrinkles. Patients begin to naturally lose their collagen and elastin around the age of 30 at a gradual rate. The formation of fine lines and wrinkles is often associated with the skin laxity that may develop. Men and women interested in combating these signs of aging may be afraid plastic surgery is their only option. Luckily, with the team of Greater Miami Skin and Laser Center, patients can turn back the hands of time with a cosmetic injectable known as a dermal filler.
What is a dermal filler?
Dr. Martin Zaiac of the Miami Beach area describe a dermal filler as a wrinkle filler. This injectable is completely safe and effective when administered by trained professionals. Most dermal fillers are formulated with an ingredient known as hyaluronic acid, which is a molecule that attracts water. When a dermal filler gel is injected into a wrinkle or fold of the face, it can instantly plump the area and smooth out the skin. Dermal fillers are best for fine lines and wrinkles of the face, including the nasolabial folds, the glabellar lines, and even fine lines around the mouth.
Am I a good candidate for dermal fillers?
The best candidates for dermal fillers and other cosmetic injectables available at our practice are adult men and women who have mild to moderate fine lines and wrinkles. More severe wrinkles, or considerable skin laxity, may still be best treated with plastic surgery. However, most cases of mild aging can be easily treated in a less invasive way with these popular injectables.
