What is dermal filler treatment?
Collagen is the protein in our body that helps to support and shape our body. As we grow older and our skin ages, our body loses collagen that results our face to have wrinkles and deepen natural lines. Aside from aging, our lifestyle, pollution, and exposure also contribute on our appearance. Dermal filler treatment is a non-surgical way that helps reduce skin dilemmas like wrinkles and deep natural lines. This treatment will smoothen the contours of our face and fill its hollows. It provides volume to skin that result to a younger looking skin.
How does it work?
Dermal filler treatment involves injecting synthetic or naturally derived fillers directly into skin. The main purpose of these fillers is to plump the aging problems such as folds, wrinkles, and depression. Its result can last up to six months up to two years depending on the type of filler. The effect can also last up to five or more years for treatments that use semi-permanent or permanent fillers. On the other hand, dermal filler treatment is often compared to Botox because it also involves injection. However, Botox just stops muscle movement around the eyes and forehead that results to wrinkles, while the dermal filler treatment has the power to plump and smoothen skin.
Dermal filler treatment is done to smoothen and add volume on the deep creases on the laugh lines or the one that runs from nose to mouth. It also fills hollows or depressions under eye area. If you have chicken pox scars or acne, undergo this treatment to make the scar colour look lighter and more even to your skin. It can also augment cheeks to enhance its shape and increase its volume to fill out gauntness. Dermal filler treatment can also smoothen vertical lines around the edges and plump thin lips.
What is Thermage skin tightening treatment?
Thermage skin tightening treatment is a non-surgical cosmetic procedure that tightens skins, reduce wrinkles, and to aid other skin aging problems. The Thermage itself relies on heat that results layers of the skin tighten. It produces immediate and obvious reduction of sagging skin, wrinkles, and jowls. Thermage skin tightening treatment can be used in other areas of the body like in the brow and neck area. It does not require recovery time, and it is a painless procedure and non-invasive.
How does it work?
The Thermage skin tightening treatment uses captive radiofrequency energy that will heat the inner layers of skin. It can fix skin that are not in shape and wear out its elasticity. Natural collagen fibres are the one in charge of skin shape and elasticity but as we grow older and our skin is exposed to pollution, damage, and other factors, it sags and produces wrinkles. The treatment will heat the subcutaneous layer, which is made up of collagen and fat, and the thin outer layer of skin called epidermis. This will result to immediate rejuvenation and tightening of skin’s collagen structure.
Thermage skin tightening treatment can tighten and smoothen the skin around the eyes to give a lift to tired looking eyes. With no injections or surgery needed, the treatment can minimize hooding and wrinkles around the area. In addition, this tightening treatment results to shapely, firmer, and tighter body including hands. It also eliminates age spots and smoothen hands.
