As we grow older, our skin loses a significant amount of collagen and elastin, the two proteins that provide skin with its structure and elasticity. As a result, skin becomes thinner, more frail and fine lines and wrinkles make their appearance. Reduced production of natural oils and exposure to the sun and environmental pollution equally contribute towards making skin drier and more susceptible to wrinkles.
Luckily, there are now quite a few things you can do to help improve the elasticity of your skin without resorting to cosmetic surgery. At Hertford Dental Care, we offer dermal fillers, which will help keep your skin looking plump and smooth for longer. Besides creating beautiful smiles, we also want to encourage our patients to look their best by restoring their skin’s elasticity with dermal fillers in Hertford. This is because a fresh and beautiful face is the best canvas for an attractive and confident smile.
Dermal fillers are non-surgical cosmetic injectables, which are made of high-quality, safe, synthetic materials, which have been specifically developed over the years for use in the facial skin. Dermal fillers are ideal for those who want to restore their youthful appearance by bringing volume and elasticity back into their face and lips. Unlike Botox, which slows up muscle movements, dermal fillers fill in wrinkles and fine lines in the skin and the effect is visible immediately after the treatment.
Dermal fillers are supplied in pre-filled syringes ready for injection. They are produced in different consistencies. Some dermal fillers look more like gel, whereas others are more liquid. The thicker ones are used to restore the deeper creases or wrinkles such as those between the nose and the corners of the mouth, whereas the thinner ones are ideal for fine lines.
Before the treatment, which rarely lasts more than 15 minutes, your dentist will apply local anaesthetic for maximum comfort. Injections with dermal fillers on the lips require a different type of anaesthetic which is very similar to a dental anaesthetic.
