Dermal Fillers Can Help You Love What You See
- Posted on: Sep 15 2019
Dermal filler treatment has been popular for the past several years. Adults of all ages can benefit from a brief office visit in which their lines and creases are virtually erased with a few injections. As good as this concept may sound and as much as you’d like to love what you see in the mirror, you may be hesitant to jump on the dermal filler bandwagon. We can understand why. With so many dermal filler products available today, it can be difficult to know what to expect. Here, we want to cover a few details that may help you feel more comfortable with the prospect of injectable facial rejuvenation.
- Dermal fillers and Botox are completely different. Some people don’t like the idea of Botox because the product is a neurotoxin (toxin being the key term). As high as the safety record is for Botox, we understand and respect every person’s right to feel the way they do about that drug. At the same time, those feelings shouldn’t stand in the way of exploring dermal filler treatment.
- Hyaluronic acid is the ingredient for many popular dermal fillers. This substance is not a toxin. It is a sugar compound that is already present in the body. We make hyaluronic acid to support joints, eyes, and skin. However, the production of this sugar declines as we age. Injecting hyaluronic acid into the dermis only replaces what was once there.
- A single treatment can provide months of results. Dermal fillers are used for a variety of goals. Depending on the use of a product, results can last from 6 months to 2 years. A dermal filler that is thinner, such as those for the lips, typically lasts a shorter period than denser fillers.
- You won’t look “done.” Getting dermal fillers doesn’t have to mean that your face looks overly full. It doesn’t have to mean you have a “duck pout.” In most situations, it is impossible to tell that someone has had dermal fillers. This is because providers strive for enhancement that looks and feels natural.
