No one likes looking in the mirror and seeing wrinkles and imperfections. Talk about a good way to ruin your day! But most people have no idea how simple and affordable it is to get rid of those lines that make you feel tired and worn out. Fillers are a great way to return volume to the skin and face using natural substances that already exist in your body. One treatment works instantly and can last up to a year.
Dermal fillers are also known as soft tissue fillers. They are injected into your face to add volume and fullness. Hyaluronic acid, which is naturally found in your body, is the primary active ingredient in the majority of fillers. Other fillers use calcium-based microsphere technology to provide volume restoration and stimulate the body to produce new collagen. Research shows that hyaluronic acid has a unique ability to help skin retain water, thereby adding plumpness and fullness to your skin in order to give you a healthy glow.
As you age, your face naturally loses collagen, fat, bone and muscle below the surface of your skin. That is why your facial tone and appearance change as you age. Your facial muscles become closer to the surface of your skin, which makes it easier for lines to appear where you don’t want them! Things like eye bags and wrinkles become more visible. To make matters worse, your skin stretches a bit, which contributes to the loss of volume in your face. Sun exposure, genetics, and lifestyle habits may also affect your skin’s appearance. The end result is that as you age, your face appears more hollowed out, tired, and unhappy.
What’s The Difference Between Cosmetic Injections And Fillers?
Fillers and Cosmetic Injections are facial injections to reduce the appearance of wrinkles. However, there are differences in their mechanisms of action and ingredients. Cosmetic Injections are injected into facial muscles for the purpose of helping them relax so that the appearance of dynamic wrinkles and creases goes away. Most Cosmetic Injections are done in the upper face, such as the forehead and around the eyes. These treatments may last up to three to four months because the Cosmetic Injections wear off, and the treatment needs to be performed again.
Dermal fillers use hyaluronic acid, which is a natural substance already found in the body. They help fill in or plump up areas in the face that lack volume. This helps create the appearance of smoother skin with a brighter glow. A lot of people think of fillers as a “liquid facelift”. Hyaluronic acid helps the skin retain moisture. Fillers can be used on thin lips, cheeks that seem to have lost their fullness, and wrinkles around the mouth. Fillers can also be used on the forehead to treat scars, wrinkles, and rough, dry skin. These treatments tend to last up to six months to a year.
Because they are designed to treat different things, you can schedule a Cosmetic Injection and filler injection in the same treatment period. For example, you can use Cosmetic Injections to correct wrinkles around your eyes and a filler to plump your lips or smooth smile lines around your mouth.
