Dermal fillers are among the most popular anti-aging treatment options we offer, using special solutions to increase the volume and suppleness of the skin. Some patients wonder if dermal fillers are right for them. Here are five signs that you might be a good candidate for cosmetic injection treatments.

Sign #1: More Static Lines and Wrinkles Are Visible

One of the clear signs you may want to consider for dermal fillers is the appearance of multiple lines and wrinkles. Static lines and wrinkles can increase and become more visible as you get older, and they can leave you looking tired or haggard when you really feel just fine. Dermal fillers are excellent for treating static lines and wrinkles, adding suppleness to your face.

Sign #2: Thinning of Your Face

Sometimes advanced age or certain medical conditions can lead to a thinning of your face. This can make your face appear gaunt, and it can also cause hollows and sagging skin that can leave you looking tired or much older. Dermal fillers can add volume to injection sites, in essence reversing these signs of thinning and hollowing.

Sign #3: Facial Lines Getting Deeper

As you get older, the existing lines on your face may become much deeper and more pronounced. Those lines that once added a sense off wisdom and distinction now become major problems with regard to overall facial aesthetics. Thanks to dermal fillers, these kinds of wrinkles can be smoothed out and filled out, making them far less noticeable.

Sign #4: You Want to Look Younger and More Refreshed

If you want to look your best and fight lines and wrinkles, dermal fillers are typically one of the best ways to go about it. Dermal fillers offer excellent results without surgery, meaning you don't have to take time off work to benefit from this cosmetic treatment. Repeat procedures can be performed to prolong the anti-aging results.

Sign #5: You Sense You're Losing Your Confidence and Edge

With advanced age and a changing appearance, issues with confidence and self-consciousness can become more pronounced. If you feel like you're losing your edge or that your career is suffering because of your changing appearance, dermal fillers may be the right answer. Again, there are no scars or incisions involved, and the results can give you the lift you need to be back in the game again.
