Deep Wrinkles - Dermal Fillers

Deep wrinkles can age the face and cause it to lose shape and youthful aesthetics. Seeking treatment is one option which can be explored in order to treat wrinkles and improve facial beauty. Wrinkles are essentially small furrow-like creases which appear on a normally smooth surface of the face, with the common causes being shrinking, folding and crumpling of the skin. They are commonly referred to as ridges or creases on the skin and are an indication of ageing.

The development of wrinkles is a natural process which is experienced by people of varying advanced ages. Wrinkles that appear early in life such as the teenage years or younger may be a sign of a medical condition and should be assessed by a professional.

Wrinkles will deepen with age, and at a significantly older age it is possible to develop very deep wrinkles that can be counted quite easily. Apart from ageing there are other factors which can cause wrinkles to develop on one's face, regardless of age: Air pollution and smoke from cigarettes are the main causes, and since they can be prevented in the majority, it takes personal responsibility to avoid them as much as possible.

There is a wide range of dermal fillers used to treat deep wrinkles. The most recommended treatment is the non-permanent kind that use dermal fillers made of a skin-friendly gel. This kind of dermal filler resembles the naturally occurring body acid, a feature which makes it biocompatible.

Treatment of the affected area is done using a tiny needle and has the effect of plumping up the skin for a fuller, smoother effect. Results can last for up to nine months, and patients can choose to have a repeat injection to maintain a face that is free of deep wrinkles.
