If you notice a few fine lines and a little sagging when you look in the mirror, relax, that’s normal. It’s called aging and it’s perfectly natural. However we all have that perfect vision of ourselves that doesn’t include aging. So, if you would like to halt the hands of time (or turn them back) without surgery, the advancements made with injectables and fillers are sure to bring back that youthful glow with little to no down time.
Most people instantly think of Botox when thinking of injectables, but fillers have come a long way in recent years and deserve a good look.
Dermal fillers help to diminish facial lines and restore volume and fullness in the face.
As we age, our faces naturally lose subcutaneous fat. The facial muscles are then working closer to the skin surface, so smile lines and crow’s feet become more apparent.
The facial skin also stretches a bit, adding to this loss of facial volume. Other factors that affect the facial skin include sun exposure, heredity, and lifestyle.
Dermal fillers can be used to:
- Plump thin lips
- Enhance shallow contours
- Soften facial creases and wrinkles
- Improve the appearance of recessed scars
Dermal fillers can be very helpful in those with early signs of aging, or as a value-added part of facial rejuvenation surgery. Combined with Botox, Dermal fillers can be quite effective at rejuvenating your youthful appearance. And a new study published in the journal JAMA Facial Plastic Surgery finds that botox may also improve the pliability and elasticity of skin for up to 4 months.
