I’m interested in non-surgical facial techniques, so I’m naturally drawn to facial fillers. The problem is, I’m also interested in getting a refreshed appearance, not just filling in lines. Is there a type of facial filler that will work with the skin to both make the face look healthier and fill in lines?
I really like the question you have asked. Dermal facial fillers work beneath the level of the outermost layers of the skin to decrease the lines and wrinkles by filling them in. There is a growing body of evidence that these facial fillers help to stimulate collagen in the skin to help to tighten the skin. I believe that this is a small component of the effect of the dermal fillers. To specifically address the quality of the skin you would need to have facial skin treatments performed such as, microdermabrasion or chemical peels in order to see real changes to the quality and texture of the skin.
