Photoaging: Premature Aging of the Skin

[fa icon='calendar'] May 29, 2019 8:00:00 AM / by Dermatology Center for Skin Health, PLLC posted in Cosmetic Procedures

[fa icon="comment"] 0 Comments

The skin is made up of three layers: the epidermis (outer layer), dermis (middle layer) and the subcutis (basement layer). The middle layer contains collagen, elastic, blood capillaries, nerve endings and other fibers that give your skin the structure it needs to hold up. These structures are what give your skin a youthful appearance; however, these structures are also what can be damaged by UV radiation. When these structures are damaged, your skin can lose its youthful appearance and cause you to prematurely age, also known as photoaging.

Learn more about photoaging, including signs of photoaging, where it can appear, as well as how to prevent it.

[fa icon="comment"] 0 Comments

As we age, our skin begins to change. Fine lines and wrinkles become more prevalent, and we lose volume in our cheeks and lips. Luckily, there is a way you can achieve younger looking skin without surgery or down time.

Dermal fillers are gel-like substances that doctors inject beneath the skin to increase facial volume, smooth lines and creases, and/or enhance facial contours.

Dermal fillers can be used for multiple things including:

  1. Smoothing out lines around the nose, eyes, and mouth

  2. Enhancing and restore volume to sunken cheeks or temples

  3. Plumping thin lips

  4. Smoothing out chin creases

  5. Improving facial feature symmetry

There are many FDA-approved dermal fillers on the market today. Fillers are categorized by the substance they contain. It is extremely important you always receive FDA-approved, brand-name dermal fillers and that an experienced physician performs the injections.

In this blog, we discuss four different types of fillers:

  1. Hyaluronic Acid

  2. Calcium Hydroxylapatite

  3. Poly-L-Lactic Acid

  4. Polymethylmethacrylate

Keep reading to learn how they work, pros and cons, and best areas of treatment for each.
