If you want to put your best face forward but are concerned about the effects of aging, then you might want to consider dermal fillers. This treatment is effective in reducing signs of aging around the eyes, including lines and a hollow facial appearance. Since dermal fillers are often used in close proximity to the eyes, an ophthalmologist may do the injection. At Capital Eye Medical Group, serving Roseville and Grass Valley, CA, we can see if dermal fillers are right for you. First, it’s important to know how the process works.
What Are Dermal Fillers?
Dermal fillers are a type of injectable gel that helps patients restore the appearance of volume and youth by smoothing out wrinkles. Dermal fillers are often used around the eyes, nose, and cheeks. Dermal fillers can also be used to plump your lips and help define your jawline and chin.
Why Choose Dermal Fillers?
Although you may achieve some of the same effects as dermal fillers from other methods, especially surgery, dermal fillers are preferable in several ways. First, fillers are more affordable than surgery and do not require time to heal. The procedure also requires less time than surgery. Dermal fillers are less invasive than surgery and can improve your confidence.
What Are Dermal Fillers Made From?
Several types of dermal fillers are available, and our providers may recommend one over the other based on the injection site or other factors. The following are common ingredients in dermal fillers:
- Hyaluronic Acid (HA)
- Calcium Hydroxyapatite (CaHA)
- Polylactic Acid
- Polymethylmethacrylate (PMMA)
- Autologous fat injections
Furthermore, these fillers go by different brand names. While you might be familiar with Botox, other options exist for patients who are interested in dermal fillers.
How Can Dermal Fillers Help?
The lower eyelid, also known as the tear trough, can become deformed through aging and create the appearance of a sunken eye. This part of the face is challenging to treat. However, dermal fillers can help. This is a delicate procedure that should be performed by our skilled ophthalmology professional. The most appropriate products for filling tear trough deformities are Juvéderm, Restylane, or autologous fat injections. Dermal fillers can also smooth lines and creases and restore volume around your eyes.
