Normal healthy skin has a nice smooth texture, which acts as a barrier to water and other environmental factors. Skin colour and tone are even and unblemished. Structural components of the skin such as collagen and elast in keep the skin firm and elastic, while other substances help keep it hydrated. When we’re young all of these components are plentiful. So what causes the skin to become wrinkled over time?
As we age, our skin undergoes many changes most of which occur due to external factors such as the sun, smoking, environmental pollution, diet, gravity and bad skin care. However, age is also a significant factor in itself. At Hertford Dental Care, we understand that despite taking good care of your skin, wrinkles and fine lines still happen – it’s a natural part of ageing. However now there is something you can do about it. We can help you restore the suppleness of your skin with dermal fillers in Hertford.
Dermal fillers are a temporary cosmetic treatment, which provides immediate structural support to your skin. This leads to a reduction in facial lines and wrinkles. Our dermal fillers consist of collagen, a substance that naturally occurs in our bodies and which is therefore broken down safely by our bodies. Treatment with dermal fillers is ideal for the cheeks, the tear trough area below the eye, as well as the folds and lines between the eyebrows. Moreover, dermal fillers can also be used to plump up your lips.
The injections take only a few minutes and are usually administered with the aid of local anaesthetic for maximum comfort. Unlike Botox, the effect of the treatment with dermal fillers is visible almost immediately. Depending on the area treated, your skin type and the number and type of injections, dermal filler treatment can last for 6 to 12 months. Follow-up treatments will help you to maintain your skin’s more youthful appearance over time.
