Aging of the face is a combination of multiple factors, loss of skin elasticity, loss of fat volume and bone remodeling. In the older model the only treatment available was a face lift. In that procedure excess skin is removed and the face is tightened. The results had a limited life and the skin would stretch again an repeat procedures are often necessary. Today there are non surgical methods to improve the appearance of the face through the use of dermal fillers. These fillers are injected into various parts of the face to replace the fat lost with aging. Significant improvements can be made quickly and with the exception of bruising there no down time and only mild pain from the procedure.
These procedures are moderately priced can last for up to one year and can be easily repeated. Costs depends on the filler used and the amount necessary to obtain an acceptable result.
