Time causes skin to become loose, gain creases and deep lines, wrinkles and dark spots that are definitely not fun to look at. Even if no one else notices, the bearer definitely has. After all, we are all our own worst critics. These changes affect a person’s confidence, as they can sometimes happen prematurely.
Thankfully, there are many new and advanced treatments for wrinkles and signs of aging to include specialty face creams and of course plastic surgery. No longer does a person need to grow old gracefully. In fact, a new method many are turning to is dermal fillers. Dermal fillers are a treatment that promote the production of extra and natural collagen. They’re an ideal option for those who want to put off even thinking about plastic surgery for a while.
With the breakdown of elastin and collagen, aging effects are inevitable. Dermal fillers are injected and fill in lines and creases using non-harmful ingredients. They are volumizing agents that make the signs of aging almost completely disappear, even deep lines. They plump and lift areas that sag over time and enhance the good areas of the face such as the cheeks, lips and even hands.
In general, dermal fillers are an easy and fast way to see results. They are mostly pain-free and so simple that one could get it done on a work break and immediately show off the results.
Where to Get Treatments
There are usually spas that offer dermal fillers. It’s important to explore the options and learn about the various solutions before booking an appointment. Many cosmetic physicians turn to Botox as a popular dermal filler with great results. It easily eliminates frown lines between a person’s eyebrows and on various areas of their face.
About Dermal Fillers
The way a dermal filler works is by interrupting signals sent to the muscles from the nerves. The muscle that’s injected can’t contract any longer and wrinkles relax and eventually disappear. It’s that simple!
Studies do show that those lines on the forehead and around the eyes respond well to this treatment, but any wrinkles from natural aging or exposure to the elements don’t. Usually a primary consult can tell a person if the fillers will work for them. Anyone that’s considering the treatment should know it only takes a few minutes to do and no anesthesia is required.
The only recommendations are that they stop drinking alcohol for a week or more before the appointment, avoid lying down for a few hours after the procedure, and of course consult with the physician if there are any issues.
The procedure uses a very fine needle to inject the filler formula into the muscle that’s being focused on. Other than a bit of discomfort there is no pain. There could be a bit of bruising and some report headaches but this goes away fast. The full effects of the dermal filler will take about a week.
