What to Know About Dermal Fillers
Dermal fillers are a nonsurgical way to look younger, correct minor flaws, and enhance the contouring of the face. Have you been considering getting dermal fillers? Here are some things you should know.
Fillers can be made from different things
Dermal fillers are naturally made, and the three most common types are calcium hydroxylapatite, poly-L-lactic acid, and hyaluronic acid. These can moisturize the skin, provide structure, and stimulate collagen production.
The effects of a filler injection are long lasting
When it comes to adding volume to the right places and decreasing wrinkles, the effects of an injection can last from 6 months to 2 years. Research has also shown that hyaluronic acid injections can also make the skin look refreshed and beautiful in the long run because of its collagen-stimulating powers.
It may be worth it to get dermal fillers before you see signs of aging
Lately, plastic surgeons are seeing more and more patients who are under 30 who want dermal fillers. Dermal fillers may not only be able to correct flaws, but it is possible that they can prevent some signs of aging as well.
Dermal fillers are different than Botox
Botox, a neurotoxin, “freezes” muscles to reduce wrinkles, while fillers fill in areas of the face to provide volume. The two can be combined, depending on what changes you would like to see.
Once you’ve had dermal fillers, you won’t want to stop
Chances are you’ll love the look of younger, firmer skin that comes with dermal fillers, and you’ll want to continue getting them!
The process of injecting dermal fillers is an art
An expert plastic surgeon will be able to inject fillers in such a way that it looks very natural – so natural that no one can even tell you’ve had the procedure done. But you also want to make sure that you have a doctor you can trust, so the risk of lumps, discoloration, and infection are as low as possible.
