Why do wrinkles appear?
Every time we make a facial movement, the epidermis folds itself. By repeating the same expression over and over again the skin eventually breaks down and wrinkles start to appear.
Static wrinkles on the other hand appear as a natural process, when the skin starts to lose collagen, elastin and hyaluronic acid. Therefore, the dermis breaks down, causing wrinkles to appear.
The benefits of dermal fillers
With dermal fillers, as the name indicates, we can fill these wrinkles by injecting cross-linked hyaluronic acid to the skin, making it appear more youthful, smooth and bright.
Dermal fillers are also used to contour body parts and increase volume, such as for lips or cheekbones.
