Shhh… The women are busy trading secrets!
Are you worried about the visible signs of aging? Don’t panic, you’re not alone! If you’re looking to smooth over those unsightly crows feet, straighten out frown lines, or even enhance your facial features, dermal fillers have your prayers answered. Dermal fillers are a woman’s best-kept secret, these little beauty injections can bring back your youthful skin bounce before you know it.
The cat is out of the bag
Now that the secret is out of the bag, you should probably know that dermal fillers can also be used to add volume to your facial structure, smooth out deep creases that run from the nose to the mouth (laughing lines), plump thin lips, smooth out vertical lines around the edges of your lips, help to shape cheeks, fill out depressions under your eyes, even out acne or chicken pox scars, fill out dimpled skin in the lower cheek and temple area and last but not least, restore youthfulness! Amen.
How do they work?
Now have a think back to all of the celebrity photos you drooled over and attempted to copycat. The truth is, they most likely have dermal fillers themselves to create their fabulous figure. So how do dermal fillers work, you may ask? Dermal fillers are either a naturally derived or synthetic material that is directly injected into your skin to get rid of fold lines or depressions in the skin. Results can last anywhere from six months to two years depending on the type of filler. For a semi-permanent or more permanent filler, the results can last up to five years or longer.
Dermal fillers are NOT Botox
Be careful not to confuse dermal fillers for Botox. Even though both procedures involve injections, Botox is mainly injected around the forehead and eye area to stop muscle movement! Unfortunately, studies have shown that Botox can result in wrinkles and has a completely different effect to dermal fillers that plump and smooth. The great news is, you can get both Botox and dermal fillers together to create a remarkably younger-looking appearance!
Natural VS Synthetic dermal fillers
As previously mentioned, there are two types of dermal fillers, natural and synthetic. So which are better for you? Naturally derived fillers are usually made up of hyaluronic acid and carry a much smaller risk of causing an allergic reaction. The results from a natural filler will normally last for approximately 18 months and occasionally two years, however, because the filler slowly breaks down you will eventually need a top up. Synthetic fillers on the other hand, last much longer than their natural cousins. Synthetic fillers are considered to be semi-permanent, though there are many clients that would suggest that they are permanent because they don’t entirely break down. The wrinkles will eventually start to make an appearance as your face ages, grows or if you’re a prevalent sun lover (please use sunscreen!). All fillers carry their own risks as well as synthetic fillers, which still run the risk of causing an allergic reaction, although they’re also permanent and slightly harder to correct if there was to be an issue.
