Facial lines and loss of volume are natural effects of aging, caused by a decrease in subcutaneous fat and stretching of facial skin. This, combined with external factors such as sun exposure and lifestyle can result in the appearance of smile lines and crow’s feet. As we age, our skin loses essential components such as hyaluronic acid and collagen, resulting in wrinkles, fine lines, and a loss of elasticity and fullness. Fortunately, healthcare professionals can now correct these signs of aging by using dermal fillers to add volume to sunken skin and correct wrinkles and folds. At Rebalance our aesthetic experts can address these concerns and restore volume and fullness to the face with dermal filler treatment.

What Are Dermal Fillers?
Dermal fillers are soft, gel-like substances injected beneath the skin that can address a range of concerns including under-eye circles, cheekbone lifting, lip volumizing, smoothing of lip lines and nasolabial folds, and hand rejuvenation. These fillers can be made from various substances, both naturally occurring and synthetic, with Hyaluronic Acid (HA) being a common compound used in many fillers.

Most dermal fillers are composed of soft, Hyaluronic Acid-based injectable gels that replenish and refresh the appearance of the skin. Hyaluronic Acid is a natural sugar found in the body that combines with skin water to instantly reduce lines and wrinkles and restore lost volume. It is highly biocompatible, non-animal based, and gradually absorbed by the body while stimulating natural collagen production. Dermal filler injections are a type of nonsurgical cosmetic procedure that involves injecting substances just under the skin to smooth lines, plump wrinkles, and restore volume. This elective treatment typically takes less than 30 minutes, and recovery time is minimal. Results are visible immediately and can last for months to years depending on the filler type and location.

Crow’s Feet and Smile Lines
Crows’ feet and smile lines are the terms used for deep wrinkles which are reduced by dermal fillers. Crows’ feet refer to the small lines that extend outwards from the outer corner of the eyes that result from the contraction of a muscle around the eyes during facial expressions. Crow’s feet tend to be more visible in this area due to the thin and delicate nature of the skin, which is susceptible to reduced collagen levels. The orbicularis oculi muscle which surrounds the eye is responsible for causing crow’s feet. When we make facial movements or expressions such as smiling, crying, or frowning, this muscle pulls the skin forward and tightens it, leading to the formation of these wrinkles. Another contributing factor to the development of crow’s feet is the loss of collagen and elastin in the skin, which can make it more susceptible to lines and wrinkles. Smile Lines are fine lines and wrinkles can appear earlier than expected and often catch us off guard. The lines that form during facial expressions may take longer to disappear and eventually become permanent. If you tend to smile or laugh a lot, you may be concerned about developing smile lines, also known as laughter lines.
