As we age, our faces naturally begin to lose subcutaneous fat, which is the fat visible just under the skin. This means that our facial muscles are then working closer to the skin’s surface, making fine lines and wrinkles appear more visibly. This can make us look tired and older than we really are. Luckily, there are non-surgical solutions, such as dermal fillers, available to rejuvenate or prevent an aged appearance. If you are considering dermal fillers, take a look at Dr Laniewski’s before and after photos to see if his work appeals to you.
What are dermal fillers?
Dermal fillers are designed to improve visible signs of ageing by reducing facial lines and restoring volume and fullness in the face. Made up of a hydrating sugar gel that occurs naturally in the body, dermal fillers are injected into the skin using very fine needles to smooth out wrinkles or plump areas that have lost fat and bone.
Dermal filler treatments are quick and easy, with treatments taking only 15 to 20 minutes, after which you can immediately resume your daily activities. Your results will appear immediately after treatment and continue to improve over the following weeks as collagen production is stimulated. These results can last anywhere from six to 18 months; however, maintenance treatments can help maintain a youthful appearance.
