The interesting thing about beauty is that it is always changing, and always in flux. Trends come and go. So, If you want to change the way you’re aging or even change the way you look, it is up to you. And injectable dermal fillers can help you achieve the change you want- higher cheekbones, fuller lips, or getting rid of fine lines. You want it, you got it!
What are fillers?
Fillers are jelly-like proteins that are injected under the skin to address various skin concerns. These include smoothing out frown lines, gaunt hands, and lifting the cheeks and corners of the mouth. Dermal fillers have been around for more than a decade and are more common than we realize. They are often injected into the skin to volumize and lift features. Most fillers ( about 99.9%) are made with Hyaluronic acid. This is because HA is reversible if the amount injected needs adjustment. As soon as hyaluronic acid is injected into the skin, it immediately begins to collect water in that region. HA can bind water many times its weight
Why get fillers
There will always be a certain percentage of clientele that will ask for bold, doll-like enhancements to their cheekbones, brows, and lips. But the majority these days swings towards more natural-looking features that appear just a bit more noticeable and flattering.
The puckered-up lips will perhaps always remain an oft-requested filler look. However, a large portion of lip filler clients are actually looking to solve a problem: thin, chapped, and dehydrated lips. Due to its amazing water-binding ability, Hyaluronic acid lip filler is the perfect solution. It plumps out thin lips without giving them an unnatural look, while also simultaneously keeping the lips hydrated and soft.
As we age our faces don’t sag flat downwards but rather in an inverted triangle formation. So the cheeks can be lifted to restore a semblance of the former face. Some people want a contoured look. Fillers in the cheekbones can help achieve his look. However, you must keep in mind that when you touch up one area on your face, you have to make minor alterations to other areas as well. E.g filling out the cheeks but not the temples will give an unnatural look as the temples will appear more gaunt in comparison.
Nose fillers work a little like nose contour- just quite a bit longer-lasting. You fill out the areas where you feel your nose is going a bit crooked. And just like that, you’ve saved yourself the cost of a painful rhinoplasty which would also likely come with some downtime as well.
Forehead and Under-eyes
Injecting fillers into the forehead can reduce frown lines. This fills out the sagging skin for a tighter, smoother appearance. Many people complain of under-eye hollows making them look tired and gaunt. You can fix this by getting a small filler dose near the nose-cheek junction.
Benefits of dermal fillers include not having to wait for results which are also almost immediately visible. The downtime of fillers is low. You can expect to see your desired results within the week of treatment. Along with that, you get a long-lasting treatment usually well over a year before you need a touchup. Fillers are also ideal for an instant confidence boost!
Investing in an experienced technician.
It is imperative you get this procedure conducted by an experienced and professional dermatologist and nowhere except at a clinic. Always get reviews before picking a dermatologist. Never be shy to ask them about how much experience they’ve had with fillers. If they deal with multiple patients every day, that’s a good sign.
Risks and downsides to dermal fillers
Fillers run a very rare risk of vascular occlusion. Where the caregiver accidentally injects into a blood vessel. If this ever happens, an enzyme hyaluronidase can be injected which neutralizes the hyaluronic acid. Fortunately, this occurrence is extremely rare It can be avoided altogether by getting treated by a professional dermatologist who knows to inject very small amounts and pull back every time to ensure they haven’t punctured a blood vessel. So never try doing fillers by yourself at home.
