Remove Lines and Look Younger with Facial Fillers
When it comes to reversing the aging process of the skin, many people turn to plastic surgery as a solution for a more youthful appearance. However, surgery may not be the right answer. Dermal fillers, also known as ‘liquid facelifts’, are an increasingly popular alternative to harsh and painful surgeries. Learn more about this modern beauty treatment, and how it can help you.
What is a Dermal Filler?
A dermal filler is a minimally invasive treatment that instantly adds healthy volume to thin lips and shallow areas on the face, such as sunken in eyes and cheekbones. A dermal filler is also able to reverse wrinkles and fine lines.
How Does it Work?
Your clinician will advise you on the available types of fillers and will help you select which type is most appropriate for the areas you need to correct. Fillers such as Voluma and Restylane Lyft work best for large areas such as cheeks, while fillers such as Restylane Silk may be better for more delicate areas such as ‘smoker’s lines’ around the mouth. Most fillers which will be used to fill the areas on your face that you would like corrected make use of hyaluronic acid, a chemical found naturally occurring within the body, to build collagen and elastin in the areas that have been injected. This process prevents an allergic reaction and is much more safe overall for patients. Dermal fillers produce temporary to semi-permanent results, depending on the treatment route selected by you and your clinician, and depending on the specific product, but can last anywhere from 6 months to several years.
What to Expect
The process involved is relatively simple and fast, making dermal fillers the perfect solution for busy people who do not want to deal with the downtime involved in an invasive surgical procedure, such as a facelift. Your clinician will outline the best strategy in order to produce the results that you want. He or she will then clean your face, possibly apply a topical anesthetic, and inject the filler. Usually completed in less than an hour, dermal fillers are the fastest way to revive your look and gain a more youthful appearance.
