Both men and women may begin to show the signs of aging after 30. At this point, the collagen and elastin stores begin to diminish naturally. Less collagen and elastin can cause the skin to become lax and the formation of fine lines, wrinkles, and folds that detract from their otherwise healthy, youthful appearance. Instead of believing the only way to address these imperfections is with plastic surgery, Knoxville area patients should speak to board certified dermatologist, Dr. Matthew Doppelt of Southeastern Dermatology, about dermal fillers.
Over the years, dermal fillers have become a popular choice for patients with mild to moderate skin laxity who want to achieve a more youthful look after the age of 30. Dermal fillers are injected into the skin and add volume directly where it is needed. Some of the most popular dermal fillers used in his practice include:
All of the above dermal fillers have their own advantages, which is why it is essential patients speak to a board certified dermatologist about their concerns to determine which is best for their specific needs. Many of these fillers are formulated with ingredients that are naturally occurring in the body or that provide stimulated collagen production. Working with a professional to find the injectable appropriate for your needs is the first step in enjoying quality results and the benefits of anti-aging solutions.
Many dermal fillers last several months before reinjection is necessary to maintain the results. Patients must understand the results achieved are not permanent and injectables need periodic retreatment to slow the signs of aging.
