Five Signs it’s Time for Dermal Fillers

Posted in Dermal Fillers

Doctor injecting a patient in her faceTry as you might, it’s just not possible to stay young forever. And while aging definitely has it benefits, it also has its disadvantages, primarily the unwanted signs of aging. Fortunately, that is where cosmetic treatment comes in. Dr. Kimberly Henry offers cosmetic treatment that allows her patients to restore youthful, glowing skin, so that they look just as refreshed on the outside as they feel on the inside. Dermal fillers plump the skin to fill out sunken facial features, add volume to enhance facial contours, and smooth out skin affected by creases, fine lines and wrinkles. The question many patients struggle with is “when is the right time for dermal fillers?” Well, to answer that question, we’re discussing the five signs that signal it’s time for dermal fillers at our San Francisco, CA plastic surgery practice.

1. Hollowed Out Facial Features

Two of the most common side effects of aging are a loss of skin elasticity and a decline in the body’s production of collagen. Both of these conditions can result in sagging skin and a loss of volume, which result in hollowed out facial features. While a person’s initial instinct may be to seek treatment to tighten the skin, that can still leave the face looking gaunt and worn down. Instead, many patients are better off restoring volume to the face (and therefore filling and lifting sagging skin) with dermal fillers. These fillers can enhance facial features to improve a patient’s overall facial contours and restore a more youthful and refreshed appearance.

2. Thin Lips

Most people consider thick, plump lips to be attractive. Thicker lips draw attention to the mouth and can even improve a person’s profile and the overall balance of the face. Unfortunately, most people are not naturally blessed with plump lips. Dermal fillers are ideal for adding that desired volume. With some simple injections, patients can increase the size of their lips while maintaining their natural beauty.

3. Fine Lines, Wrinkles, and Creases

Fine lines, wrinkles, and creases are unavoidable as you age. The face is especially prone to these imperfections because the facial skin is exposed to the sun, wind, and other harsh environmental elements. Dermal fillers are one effective solution for these unwanted lines. Fillers can be injected into the skin at the site of wrinkles or deep creases to fill and smooth out the skin so that it appears youthful and refreshed.

4. Recessed Scars

Most people are unhappy with the appearance of scars, but unaware that there is anything they can do about it. Well, in the case of recessed scars, dermal fillers do offer a solution. By filling in these areas of recessed skin with dermal fillers, Dr. Henry can smooth out the skin and diminish or eliminate the appearance of scars. This treatment can offer many patients the unblemished skin they had always hoped for.

5. Lack of Confidence

More important than how a person looks in the mirror is how they feel on the inside. If someone is lacking confidence because they no longer feel that their outer appearance is reflecting their youthful energy, it may be time to consider dermal fillers. Dermal fillers can restore a patient’s youthful appearance while maintaining their natural beauty, allowing them to once again feel confident in their appearance.
