Maintaining a healthy body and taking measures to look youthful does not prevent the changes that occur when men and women age. As individuals age, their skin stretches. Furthermore, the face loses some of the excess fat, resulting in wrinkles and fine lines along certain muscles. Working with a team of experienced professionals at Vein, Vascular & Aesthetic Associates (VIVAA), provides the opportunity to slow the aging process by using dermal fillers.
What Are Dermal Fillers?
An injection that fills in areas of facial tissue where moderate to severe wrinkles occur. Generally, fillers last between nine to 12 months or longer, depending on the specific material and the way that an individual’s body reacts to the filler.
Injectable fillers are also used to plump up different areas of the face or body for aesthetic improvements. For example, plumping up thin lips or filling in recessed scars for a smooth appearance.
