You just had your Latisse procedure done and your eyelashes look great. Now it’s time to fix up the rest of your face. These days, dermal fillers are what people are turning to in order to rejuvenate their face without having to go through Aesthetic surgery and dealing with long recovery times. Dermal filler is used to add fullness and volume to your skin and smooth out fine lines and wrinkles.
Your face begins to lose subcutaneous fat as you age. And since your facial muscles then begin to work closer to the surface of your skin, those crow’s feet and smile lines begin to appear. Your skin on your face begins to stretch as well which adds to facial volume loss. Things like heredity, lifestyle, and sun exposure also affect your facial skin.
Cosmetic services that perform dermal fillers can help with this. This procedure can be used to:
- Improve shallow contours.
- Plump up lips that are too thin.
- Enhance the look of recessed scars.
- Smooth out facial wrinkles and creases.
The procedure is not the same as BOTOX, but it can help you to fight off the early signs of aging. You can also use it to enhance a facial rejuvenation surgery.
Benefits of Having Dermal Filler Done
As if enhanced self-esteem, beauty and looking younger are not benefits enough of having this non-surgical procedure done, some other benefits include:
There is virtually no recovery time with dermal fillers. Your procedure is done in practically 10 minutes depending on what the treatment areas are and you are free to go back to your normal daily routine; even work.
Although it depends on the type of filler you have, unlike BOTOX treatments where you are recommended to come back every 3 months to have more injections, fillers last for 6 months to 5 years for semi or permanent fillers. Some have reported results that lasted even longer than this.
Natural Fillers for Allergy Sensitivity
If you tend to experience allergic reactions or have sensitive skin, there is even natural dermal filler that you can get instead of using synthetics. The ingredients in these fillers mimic those that are already in your body which make them less likely to give you an allergic reaction. Natural fillers that use Collagen and hyaluronic acid as the main active ingredient are FDA approved too.
Minimal Side Effects
Fillers have very minimal side effects if any. Usually you might experience a little swelling or redness around the injection area. This side effect usually only lasts for a few hours to 1 day. You can cover it easily with makeup. You might see some light bruising too which also can be covered up.
There are more benefits to dermal fillers to reduce the appearance of aging that go way beyond what skincare lotions and creams can do. This isn’t to say that these creams can’t make a significant difference in how your skin looks, but as muscle movement, age, gravity, fat loss and sun damage all take their toll on your skin, fillers without a doubt can improve your skin’s appearance.
