Self-care is something that has been talked about a lot the last few years. Times are stressful and our mind and our body suffer from this stress. Stress can have a physical effect on our body. When there is time to relax, a medi-spa is a great place to go. Avere has so many options to help rejuvenate yourself including the best dermal fillers in Pittsburgh.
What are dermal fillers?
Resilient (RHA) is an injectable gel called a dermal filler. This filler is used to treat facial wrinkles and folds. Derma fillers in Pittsburgh help diminish the facial lines and restore fullness to the face. Due to stress or aging our face begins to lose subcutaneous fat; this means that the muscles are working closer to the skin and this causes wrinkles and crows feet to become more obvious.
How do dermal fillers work?
The RHA uses a manufacturing system with a few chemical modifications to mimic your natural hyaluronic acid found in your skin. Hyaluronic means that it loves water; hyaluronic acid helps retain the water in your skin giving you a smooth and well moisturized skin. With the increase of hyaluronic acid, the derma fillers add volume to the skin diminishing the lines and dynamic wrinkles and giving a naturally softer look.
What are dynamic and static wrinkles?
Derma fillers are used to push out dynamic wrinkles. These wrinkles are the ones that form over time from repeated facial movements like frowning, smiling, laughing and crying. They are seen on the forehead, smile lines and crow’s feet. Static wrinkles are visible even when your face is at rest. It is these wrinkles that begin to show your age. They are seen under the eyes and the skin from your nose to the edge of your mouth (these are known as nasolabial folds).
What are the different levels of dermal fillers?
If you are thinking of getting dermal fillers in Pittsburgh, there are different kinds available. You should always consult a specialist before proceeding with any treatment. They will be able to recommend what treatment that you need. Currently there are 3 RHA fillers available.
• RHA 2 is used for moderate dynamic and static wrinkles and for the plumbing out the nasolabial folds.
• RHA 3 is a thicker formula that is used to increase the volume of your face and to help push out deeper static wrinkles.
• RHA 4 is the thickest or strongest formula. This is used for significant volume rebuild and deep folds.
