As they are a relatively new treatment, many people may not have even heard of dermal fillers in Buckinghamshire before. However, amongst many other procedures, they are quickly becoming a favourite type of treatment for reducing the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines across many different areas of the skin, and providing an overall appearance of being refreshed and rejuvenated. But regardless of whether you feel that you’re an expert on the subject of dermal fillers, or if you feel you know next to nothing, it is always helpful to know and understand a little bit more about them, how they work, and what they are made of. That way, if you are considering getting dermal fillers in Buckinghamshire, then you can have more information, so that you have a better chance of making the right decision about dermal fillers for yourself.
What are dermal fillers?
For those who don’t know, dermal fillers are injections that are administered just below the surface of the skin, and they contain a type of fluid which promotes the natural development of collagen and elastin (both necessary for maintaining fresh, hydrated skin). This fluid is known as hyaluronic fluid. It occurs naturally within our own bodies, yet sadly, as we age, the hyaluronic fluid has a tendency to be produced at a slower rate than when we were younger. Because of this, wrinkles and fine lines can form across the skin as it loses elasticity from an overall lack of hyaluronic fluid. The way that dermal fillers treat this problem is by replenishing the hyaluronic fluid that has been lost to our bodies’ natural absorption of it over time.
It is worth noting though that a single treatment of dermal fillers in Buckinghamshire is most likely not enough to ensure that your skin retains its natural elasticity forever onwards. After all (as mentioned earlier), the hyaluronic fluid that is injected below the surface of the skin is designed to emulate that which occurs in your skin naturally, and just like that natural hyaluronic fluid, this fluid also breaks down over time. This process of breaking down usually occurs between approximately 9 and 18 months. Therefore, it is worth considering further treatment after having dermal fillers initially, to help maintain the fresh, airbrushed appearance that dermal fillers are designed to give you for longer.
More on hyaluronic fluid
Hyaluronic fluid is a sugar based compound which, as discussed above, occurs naturally within our bodies. It performs a crucial role in maintaining and regulating the moisture levels of our skin. This is in part because it helps to moisturise the skin cells in a specific way, such that it does not cause them to drown. This is made all the more impressive by the fact that hyaluronic fluid can and does frequently hold up to six litres of moisture per gram.
