The best results for dermal fillers come from working with your doctor near Rockville
The way in which the face ages include several factors, such as loss of hydration, diminished subcutaneous tissues, textural changes, and loss of elasticity. One of the most significant changes is the loss of volume. Each year, the total volume in the face may decrease one teaspoon, or even more. As the body produces less hyaluronic acid, less moisture is retained in the skin. Decrease in collagen production in addition to the loss of moisture can lead to overall thinning. Aging and other factors also affect the underlying tissues, including bone mass and fat pads, which add structure to the face. As these elements decrease, skin becomes loose and saggy, rough in texture, and marked with lines and wrinkles.
Replacing what has been lost to time
There is no way to avoid growing older. There are, however, treatments to slow the signs of aging that are easily accessible, unlike the options available even a few decades ago. Where rejuvenation was once only possible with a surgical facelift, men and women desiring a return to a more youthful appearance can now accomplish goals with non-invasive techniques and products. One of the bestways to address the signs of aging is to work with your doctor who specializes treatment of the skin. Dr. Prussick offers dermal fillers and other treatments for patients in Rockville and Maryland.
