How Dermal Fillers Can Make You Look Young Again
Around your mid-thirties, you start to notice changes in your face. You’ll see the beginnings of wrinkles, and an overall hardness to the skin. Already you’ll start to see the worst sign of aging of all – A dramatic loss of volume.
What separates an older person’s face from that of a younger one? Over time, the cheeks become hollow, the eyes sink into their sockets, and your lips shrink. It looks like you’re wasting away! This is part of the natural process of aging, but you don’t have to take it lying down.
Botox is one of the most popular non-invasive treatments to regain your youthfulness. Now, there is a new, non-invasive technique designed to restore volume to your face. It is called dermal filler treatment. This new technique has been designed to give you the advantages of a face lift, but without the surgery.
Fill ‘Em Up…
There is no cutting involved in this treatment, don’t worry! Dermal fillers use an injectable substance, such as collagen or hyarulonic acid. There are a number of them, so talk to your plastic surgeon about which is best for you.
The filler is injected into the area where there are wrinkles, scarring or lack of volume. The material binds with the water in the skin and stays there. Most treatments involve a series of quick injections into different areas of the face.
What Can Fillers Do?
This treatment adds volume to the face. It is also effective at making wrinkles disappear. The treatment is effective against shallow scarring, like the scars left after acne. It is great at enhancing lips and cheeks, but can be used to add volume also.
An Easy Way To Beat Old Age
The entire treatment never takes more than about 30 minutes. No anesthetic is used, except in the case of lip treatments. When filling out lips, the doctor will give you a slight local anesthetic, because it’s a sensitive area.
You’ll see results immediately. Dermal fillers vary from type to type, and results also vary from person to person, but you can generally expect the results to last for 6 to 9 months.
Dermal fillers are fairly risk-free. The only possible side effect is an allergic reaction to the substances injected. In order to prevent this, the plastic surgeon will have you do allergy tests before the treatment. In some patients who experience cold sores, you might see sores after the initial injection. If you get them, talk to your doctor and they will prescribe a medication that will prevent them.
These injectables offer a great way to turn back the years without having surgery done. If you’re worried about the signs of aging that are creeping into your face, talk to a plastic surgeon about what dermal fillers can do for you.
