Aging is a normal phenomenon. Everyone grows old eventually – but who says you have to look your age?
While we do have the option to age gracefully, there’s nothing wrong with getting a bit of help to keep yourselves looking youthful for longer. Fortunately, we live in a time where we can enjoy plenty of aesthetic treatments supported by the latest advances in science and technology.
But still, nothing beats the classics. FDA approved fillers, for example, are still widely used in many med spas today and remain highly sought after by patients who want to preserve – or enhance – their looks.
Wondering if you should get dermal fillers? Want to know more about what they are – and most importantly, what they can do for you?
Well, you’ve come to the right place. Read on to find out more about how fillers can help you achieve your aesthetic goals!
What Are Dermal Fillers?
Some of you might already be familiar with dermal fillers, but for those who aren’t, let us enlighten you.
As their name suggests, dermal fillers are injectables that add or restore lost volume to the skin, to “fill” certain gaps or hollows, if you will.
Though they’re more commonly associated with lip augmentation (fillers are used to plump lips and to improve asymmetry in the mouth, for instance), dermal fillers are also injected into different areas of the face, such as the tear troughs and cheeks.
Dermal fillers are also FDA-approved to treat static wrinkles, such as the ones that remain even if you don’t move your face. Examples of these are marionette lines and nasolabial folds.
The Benefits Of Dermal Fillers
Dermal fillers present a wide variety of anti-aging benefits, and these include:
1.Boosting collagen development – As we age, the ability of our body to produce collagen diminishes. This substance is what keeps our skin, nails, and hair healthy and young – so less collagen means more fine lines and wrinkles. Fillers boost cellular activity to encourage collagen development, promoting healthier, firmer and more youthful-looking skin.
2.Add or restore volume to cheeks, lips, and tear troughs– Fillers add or restore lost volume to thinning lips, sagging cheeks, and undereye hollows to bring back that plump, youthful look.
3.Diminish the appearance of static lines and wrinkles – As you age, your skin starts to sag and lose volume, inviting wrinkles and fine lines to settle in. Fillers contain hyaluronic acid, which, when injected into your skin, draws moisture to help plump up the skin and improve the appearance of certain signs of aging.
4.Beautiful, natural-looking results – The fillers are usually made of hyaluronic acid, which is a naturally occurring substance in the body, hence the natural looking results (provided that you get fillers from a qualified and experienced injector).
5. Zero downtime – The procedure itself takes only minutes and there’s no downtime required. You can go back to your regular routine right after.
Dermal fillers are a wonderful and non-invasive way to address common signs of aging, specifically to restore lost volume to the face and/or body.
However, getting the best possible results highly depends on your injector. Here at R&R Wellness, our injector is both well-trained and highly-experienced and has helped many patients in Fort Worth, TX achieve or restore that youthful, natural-looking volume that never looks overdone.
