THINGS YOU DIDN’T KNOW YOU CAN USE FILLERS OR INJECTABLES FOR
Whether you call them fillers, injectables, or something else, there’s no denying the almost magical anti-aging effects that these gel-like substances can have. This efficacy has made dermal fillers increasingly popular non-surgical solutions for problems we all deal with as we age – like wrinkles, lines, and sagging skin. Injections lessen the appearance of these imperfections, if not making them disappear entirely by smoothing out lines, softening creases, and restoring lost volume to skin. They’re commonly used in the face to give a patient a more youthful appearance without the expense, inconvenience, or downtime of surgery, but fillers can be used for much more than facial rejuvenation. In fact, the number of skin concerns that can be addressed with injectables may surprise you!
Skin scarring happens when the deep, thick layers of skin get damaged. They can be caused by a variety of things, including injuries, surgeries, infections, and acne. The scar is a result of the body’s natural way of healing the wound and replacing lost skin, and while some may wear them as a badge of honor, others may dislike the way they look. The right kind of filler can help reduce the appearance of scars and recontour affected areas, resulting in smoother skin.
As you age, all of your skin loses its volume. This leads to wrinkles, sagging, and a loss of elasticity that makes skin show its age. Most people are concerned with losing volume in their face, but the hands are another area where aging is commonly displayed because the loss of volume makes veins, bone structure, and tendons more visible. Thankfully, there are hand rejuvenation dermal fillers that can correct this volume loss.
SMOOTH EARLOBE FOLDS
Your earlobes probably aren’t among the first thing that comes to mind when you think of sagging skin, but more and more people are turning to injectables to add volume and plump them up. Dermal filler makes the area appear more youthful and helps provide support for earrings, making it a procedure you should definitely consider if you love accessorizing and wearing large earrings.
FILLING UNDER EYE BAGS
Under eye bags are an inevitable part of aging, but just because it affects everyone, it doesn’t mean you have to live with it. Also commonly referred to as “puffiness,” under eye bags are caused by a weakening of the tissue and muscles that support your eyelids, causing skin in the area to sag. Fillers can be used to correct puffiness and provide some much-needed plumpness to the areas that make the bags stand out.
INSTANT LONG LASTING RESULTS
Dermal fillers achieve results quickly – as opposed to surgical procedures, like facelifts, that take longer for results to become evident. In fact, the effects of injectables can be seen almost immediately! The process itself is also much quicker, as it usually takes no more than half an hour for a dermal filling procedure to be complete. Even better, the fast-acting nature of injectables doesn’t mean you have to
compromise with how long results last. Most procedures will last anywhere from 6 - 12 months, and others can even last years!
DERMAL FILLERS AREN’T JUST FOR WOMEN
While women are more likely than men to seek out these kinds of beauty treatments, there’s no reason men shouldn’t be invested in improving their appearance as well. Dermal fillers are effective regardless of sex or gender, making them a great choice for men who want to appear younger and correct those same skin conditions. Men and women both show similar signs of aging, and injectables offer men the same fast-acting and effective way to combat those signs.
While dermal fillers do help reduce the appearance of aging skin, they’re not the only thing that can. Treatment to prevent or delay signs of aging from becoming so apparent starts when you’re much younger by taking good care of your skin.
