Many of our patients in Baton Rouge who have reached a certain age ask about treatments like facial fillers. Some of them have developed wrinkles, but prefer a non-surgical treatment option that is less risky and involves fewer complications than traditional cosmetic surgery. Facial fillers are a minimally-invasive skin rejuvenation treatment that involves the injection of various substances to promote facial skin thickness and the minimization of fine lines and wrinkles.
One of the reasons that skin can age prematurely, besides genetics, lifestyle choices, and sun damage, is a gradual loss of certain substances that promote youthful skin. As you grow older, your body produces less substances like collagen, hyaluronic acid, and subdermal fat. Facial fillers work by replacing some of these substances and correcting this deficiency. If you are dealing with the appearance of lines and wrinkles, facial fillers can help turn back time when it comes to your aging skin.
Produced in abundant amounts when you were young, hyaluronic acid is a very important skin component that becomes depleted as you grow older. This important substance is found in large concentration in your eyes, joints, and skin tissue. It has the special ability to attract and retain moisture, holding it within your skin cells.
If you need both increased skin thickness and hydration, a hyaluronic acid-based facial filler is the way to go. It is important to remember that hyaluronic acid, once injected into your skin, will need to be periodically replaced at our office in Baton Rouge in order to maintain your results.
In general, the results of a facial filler treatment can be expected to last for several months to a year or more. At this point, you will require additional treatments in order to maintain your rejuvenated appearance.
