As the years pass, our skin inevitably shows signs of aging. At Cosmedic Dermatology in Grosse Pointe, MI, we understand the desire to maintain a youthful and radiant appearance. While we, unfortunately, cannot turn back time, we offer various aesthetic treatments, including dermal fillers, that can help you achieve the glowing and youthful look you want without surgery.
The Toll Aging Takes on Your Skin
As we age, our skin tends to sag, thin, and develop wrinkles and fine lines. While protecting your skin with sunscreen and minimizing sun exposure can help, specific signs of aging may still be unavoidable.
The epidermis, the top layer of the skin, becomes thinner and more fragile as we get older. Additionally, our body’s production of collagen and elastin, essential proteins responsible for skin smoothness and plumpness, decreases with age. As a result, our skin loses volume, and lines and wrinkles become more visible.
How Dermal Fillers Combat the Signs of Aging
Dermal fillers, a non-surgical solution, contain essential ingredients like hyaluronic acid and calcium hydroxylapatite, which work wonders in combating the visible signs of aging.
This natural substance boosts your body’s collagen production, effectively plumping and smoothing your skin over time.
Found in dermal fillers like Radiesse, this substance restores lost volume to your skin, working to correct deep lines and scars, and is used for lip augmentation and facial contouring.
Dermal Fillers We Offer At Cosmedic Derm
We offer a variety of fillers at Cosmedic Derm that work on thinning lips, fine lines and wrinkles, undereye bags, and scarring. The fillers we offer include:
- Ultra XC
- Ultra Plus XC
What to Expect from Your Dermal Fillers Procedure
The dermal filler procedure is simple and straightforward. Dr. Diggs will inject a small amount of filler into the targeted areas and gently massage it to ensure even distribution. You will see some results instantly, but the full results will take a few weeks to appear as the filler settles.
You might experience some bruising and swelling, but these typically fade within a few hours or days and can be alleviated with ice.
