Over the years, our skin changes in tone and texture. The natural foundation of our tissues loses its elasticity, causing fine lines and wrinkles to slowly appear. With the loss of collagen and elastin, tissues will no longer bounce back, instead becoming lax and lifeless. Along with these changes may come dark, ‘hollow’ areas beneath the eyes and along the cheekbones. Coupled with the effects of sun damage, smoking, stress, pollutants, and genetics, these early signs of aging are impossible to avoid.
While there is no substitute for a healthy diet and good skincare routine, there is a simple, noninvasive way to temporarily improve the appearance of age-related wrinkles and volume loss: dermal fillers. These injectable formulations are made from naturally occurring, biodegradable substances like Hyaluronic Acid (HA) and Calcium Hydroxyapatite (CaHA). The benefits of fillers can be seen immediately, and depending on the treatment area, can last from six months to two years.
