How your skin ages

No matter how careful you are with sunscreen and skin products, there’s no way to fully stop your skin from changing as you age. Factors such as sun exposure, decreasing collagen production, genetics, your lifestyle, and the environment where you live, affect the way your skin ages.

Here’s a closer look at the four common skin changes you can expect as you get older:

  • Dynamic expression lines: Wrinkles that form from repeated facial movements and expressions, like smiling and frowning
  • Gravitational folds: Line and folds you get because of the pull of gravity on your skin and the loss of skin elasticity that comes with age
  • Permanent elastic creases: Wrinkles and creases that appear because of lifestyle factors, such as smoking, and damage from sun exposure
  • Atrophic crinkling rhytids: Wrinkles and lines that arise as a result of  reduced collagen production and skin elasticity

As you can see, there are different ways your skin changes as you age. The good news is that with a little help from safe and effective dermal fillers, you can rewind the hands of time.

How dermal fillers work

Dermal fillers are made from gel-like substances that get injected just below the surface of your skin. They work by restoring lost volume and improving your skin tone to smooth away lines and wrinkles and plump up the areas where you need it most.

The hyaluronic acid and collagen used to make the fillers are the secrets behind their success. Both of these substances are naturally produced in your body. Hyaluronic acid works to keep your skin and tissues hydrated and aids with lubrication. Collagen is a protein your body makes to promote cellular turnover. It also plays a key role in skin elasticity. and cell turnover.

Because dermal fillers are made from these natural materials already found in your body, there are few risks associated with their use. The best part? You can use dermal fillers to achieve different results based on your personal needs.
