The holiday season is right around the corner. With Thanksgiving coming up this month, it’s important to find something to be thankful for — especially in such unprecedented times. If you’re like us, this year has likely added significant stress and aged you quicker than you’d have liked: That’s why this year we’re thankful for dermal fillers.
Here’s what you need to know about fillers and the way they can transform your face for a more confident You.
Unlike Neurotoxins that freeze the treated area, injectable fillers smooth out the treated area by filling in the skin. The active ingredient found in dermal fillers is hyaluronic acid (HA), which is a naturally-occurring substance that is naturally found in the skin.
Hyaluronic acid has the ability to store moisture and gives skin that plump, hydrated look. As you age, your body loses the hyaluronic acid found naturally in the body: Although you may see this ingredient listed in some of your favorite skincare products, topical application can only moisturize. (That being said, it’s a great addition to any skincare regimen and he highly recommend incorporating an HA forward product to your routine!)
Injected, however, it can restore plumpness and replenish your body’s natural production of hyaluronic acid. One injection can last up to a year and will add volume and decrease wrinkles depending on the injection site.
Another great thing about dermal filler is its versatility. While you likely already know that it can be used to fill in wrinkles and fine lines in the face, it can also be used to restore and restructure the face!
Dermal fillers can be used to retore plumpness to the cheeks, or even to create an illusion of bone structure that may not be there naturally. As we age, our bones get thinner, causing deeper folds at the bottoms of the cheeks that result in a sagging appearance. With the right amount of filler, this can be corrected.
Finally, dermal filler can be used to plump the lips and create a natural-looking pout. Whether you’re looking to restore HA that’s been lost in the aging process (which is completely natural) or simply want to create a fuller lip, filler can aid as an added boost to your confidence and your lips.
Still, we understand that you may be hesistant to take the plunge. It’s important to remember that good filler is practically invisible. A skilled injector will be able to give you a natural boost that is imperceptible to the naked eye.
Here at Skin Wellness Center, we offer a few different types of filler: The Juvéderm family of products, Sculptra, the Restylane Family of products, Radiesse and Belotero Balance.
It can be difficult to know which one is right for you, and we don’t expect you to know ahead of time. Our master injectors will speak with you about your needs and desires and then discuss the right treatment for you. It’s also significant to remember that different fillers do different things, and the best treatment will be tailored directly to you.
Since filler works right away, you’ll leave the office glowing and feeling great (albeit a little sore).
