One of the most noticeable signs of advanced facial aging is volume loss. This is typically most common at the mid-portion of the face where it can lead to hollows at or below the cheeks, deep creases at or along the nasolabial folds, and even sagging at the jawline. Facial volume loss can even be responsible for peri-oral wrinkles, or deep vertical creases that radiate outwards from the mouth. For each of these issues, the dermal fillers Manhattan doctors are offering can provide a very effective and impressive-looking solution.
Once injected into areas that have volume loss, facial fillers provide a rapid plumping effect. Many of these products are made from a naturally occurring substance called hyaluronic acid or HA. HA attracts and binds itself to water molecules. Thus, not only will a dermal filler minimize or even erase unwanted facial creases, but it will also thoroughly hydrate your skin from the inside out. Best of all, injectable fillers provide a non-invasive way to address facial aging. These treatments do not pose the risk of scarring. They do not entail significant downtime, and they also take mere minutes to complete.
