Dermal Fillers: The New, Liquid Facelift

0

One of the newest ways to maintain a youthful experience and treat wrinkles is to use dermal fillers. Dermal fillers, also called injectable fillers, are often referred to as the liquid facelift!

This procedure is a way to get a rejuvenated look without the invasive surgery of a facelift. Dermal fillers and lip fillers plump your lips, giving you a nicer, fuller pout; reduce the appearance of wrinkles; and also help reverse the effects of sagging skin. Dermal fillers, considered to be “minimally invasive procedures” enhance contours that are shallow, giving the face more shape. They improve your chin and cheeks, reshape your nose, get rid of bags under your eyes, reduce jowls and reshape your brows.

Usually the effects of dermal fillers will last up to one year, although some patients report that they need a follow-up procedure after a few months. While bruising and swelling is common, both side effects will go down after a day or two. Most people find that they need repeat treatments to maintain their new appearance, since these results aren’t permanent. Dermal fillers that use hyaluronic acid, which is naturally found in the body, is a wonderful procedure. The hyaluronic acid binds water, acting as a lubricant, and regulates the amount of water in the skin. The dermal filler boosts the amount of this acid in the body, helping to plump up the skin. Some dermal fillers, like Juvederm and Restylane, are made of this acid, while others use different ingredients. Fillers with natural ingredients, like hyaluronic acid, are safer to use because there’s less of a risk of an allergic reaction. Fat fillers use either cow-based or human-based ingredients. Different people will respond differently to ingredients, which makes the use of dermal fillers very personal. The type of filler that will work best is solely dependent on the patient. The many types of injectable fillers include vampire injections, skin cell fillers and even Botox.

It’s always best to consult with your doctor before making a firm decision on the type of procedure or fillers you want. Different fillers are used for particular results, and your doctor will help you choose the one that’s best for you. Also, dermal fillers are often used in conjunction with other treatments, either invasive or non-invasive.

Dermal fillers are a great way to improve your appearance so that you’re more confident and happy with the way you look. Plus, these injectables cost much less than more in-depth, invasive procedures, making them the perfect option for people who want a quick fix with a small price tag.
