As people age, the skin around their eyes loses structure and this can result in wrinkles and folds. Dermal fillers can add volume back to these areas and help smooth away these unwanted signs of getting older.
The most popular fillers are the hyaluronic acids which are composed of a gel like substance that is found in our bodies in between the cells.
When used appropriately, injectable fillers can bring a long-lasting, rejuvenated look to the areas around your eyes. This can be an effective approach for someone wanting a more youthful appearance quickly or without plastic surgery.
You might be a candidate for fillers if you:
- Want to remove wrinkles and lines
- Want to see rapid results
- Want to avoid plastic surgery
Recovery from simple injections is fairly quick. There may be some irritation or bruising around the treated area initially, but that will quickly dissipate and is usually minor.
One advantage of dermal fillers is that you will see smoothing of the skin and reduction of wrinkles and lines almost immediately. With the new long-lasting fillers, results can last from 6 months to two years!
