If you’re looking to reduce the appearance of wrinkles, fine lines, and frown lines while also contouring and adding volume to your face, then dermal fillers are great for you. With the direct injection of hyaluronic acid filler and collagen-based filler which are naturally produced by your body, not only will dermal fillers smooth out and revitalize your skin but will also give you a much needed overall improvement in appearance to ultimately get your confidence back.
Dermal fillers can also be used as a preventative treatment for those younger in age looking to stall the visible signs of aging on their skin such as severe facial wrinkles. Injecting the hyaluronic acid and collagen fillers will boost the structural support on your face which can help slow down the production of visible wrinkles, fine lines, or sagging skin.
Although dermal fillers have a wide variety of benefits to your skin and facial structure, only those above the age of 22 are advised to get this treatment.
With wrinkles and lines found on your forehead being one of the first signs of aging, many people look to forehead fillers to erase its visibility. Forehead wrinkles can be caused by the loss of skin elasticity as well as its constant movement due to facial expressions and muscle moves. Forehead dermal fillers are injected directly onto the areas needing extra facial volume to smooth out the appearance of lines and can last for 6 to 12 months on average.
With the trend of big and plump lips, it is no surprise that lip fillers were invented to help those with thin lips achieve this look. Lip fillers can be injected directly onto the lips to boost its volume as well as remove any lines that may appear on its surface. Depending on your desired fullness, lip filler treatments can be adjusted and customized to achieve your idea of the perfect lips. Lip fillers can typically last 12 to 18 months but will start to be slowly metabolized by your body in 6 months time.
Crow’s feet and under eye bags are another tell-tale sign of aging. When you smile or squint, your eye area can be stretched out causing them to form fine lines when you begin to lose skin elasticity as you age. To prevent this, dermal fillers must be injected onto the sides and bags of your eyes to smooth over the skin and lift the area as well. This will help give your eyes a more youthful and brighter appearance. Eye fillers are safe to get every 6 to 18 months depending on how much you need them.
Cheek fillers can help restore the volume in your cheeks that tend to decrease with age and address deep smile lines. To avoid a gaunt aging look, dermal fillers can be injected into your cheeks which won’t only add fullness but can also help lift the entire appearance of your face in the process. Cheek fillers normally last anywhere between 6 to 12 months.
Chin fillers are dermal fillers used to contour your chin and jawline giving you a more defined look. Dermal fillers used in this area can also address cleft chins and sagging neck skin. Overall chin fillers can help give the appearance of a facelift and boost facial symmetry. Results from chin filler treatment typically last anywhere between 12 to 18 months.
Aside from the obvious cosmetic improvements dermal filler treatments offer, they also have a lot of other benefits:
Dermal fillers are meant to last for at least a year meaning you don’t need to come in for regular appointments or deal with any type of continuous upkeep to maintain its results. However, as they do begin to dissolve, you can book another appointment if you wish to maintain your dermal fillers.
While dermal fillers are long-lasting, they’re easily absorbed into the skin and don’t cause any permanent alterations to your face. This means that you can get dermal fillers without having to worry about any permanent damage or commit to permanent facial reconstruction down the line.
With the base of most dermal filler injections being hyaluronic acid or collagen, your body should react fairly well to it. As long as you are getting your injectable dermal filler administered by a trained dermatologist or professional plastic surgeon, there is very little risk when it comes to injectable fillers.
Dermal fillers directly inject hyaluronic acids or collagen-based into your skin which can boost the levels of collagen found in your body. Certain types of fillers can also increase your body’s natural collagen production further boosting its levels in your body.
As a non-invasive procedure, a dermal filler treatment will have very minimal recovery time if any at all. At most you may feel some soreness or see redness around the injection site, but other than that you should be able to resume your daily schedule immediately after your treatment.
Dermal fillers and Botox are very similar in the sense that they both address wrinkles, fine lines, facial creases and other signs of aging. However, Botox does this by paralyzing the facial muscles and preventing natural movement. On the other hand, dermal fillers work to boost volume and fill the area lacking collagen and structure.
Botox also directly injects toxins such as botulinum toxin into your muscles as the main solution to prevent the signs of aging. While it has been considered safe in certain amounts, it’s more likely to cause an allergic reaction compared to dermal filler. Dermal fillers consist of hyaluronic acid and collagen which are naturally produced in your body and can be easily absorbed and accepted by your body resulting in very few adverse reactions.
Both Botox and dermal fillers can work as wrinkle fillers and can give you the results you want. Choosing one treatment over the other is purely preferential and dependent on what your body can tolerate.
At most, dermal fillers will cause slight discomfort due to the needle. However, if you have low pain tolerance, topical anesthetics can be applied to certain areas before the dermal fillers are injected to make the procedure more comfortable.
You should be able to see results from your dermal fillers within the first 24 to 48 hours. You may see some swelling or discolouration right after the filler treatment but that should subside rather quickly allowing the appearance of your improved facial features to be seen.
While you will be able to see improvements immediately, it’ll take around 2 weeks for the fillers to fully settle into your face.
In general dermal fillers can be used with other treatments like Botox. As long as both treatments aren’t being used in one area, you can dermal fillers for one part of your face while getting Botox in another with no adverse side effects or risks to the results.
Depending on where you get your dermal facial filler placements, its longevity may differ and last anywhere from 6 months to years. It’s possible that due to your age, your dermal fillers are fading quicker than normal as people younger in age tend to have a faster metabolism rate that can break down and dissolve the filler quicker than in someone who’s older.
You should avoid touching your face or adding pressure to the area as this may cause the fillers to move around and leave you with a different result than you were expecting. Additionally, you should avoid direct sunlight if possible for the first 48 hours after your injectable filler treatment.
