Inject More Beauty Into Your Life
When we talk about fillers we can basically divide them in to two groups. There are permanent fillers and non-permanent fillers.
Non-permanent filler contains hyaluronic acid. Hyaluronic acid is a component that is naturally produced by the skin. With the years passing our skin produces less hyaluronic acid, which is the result of normal aging process. Your skin becomes thinner and as a result, it becomes loose and starts to wrinkle. This reduction in skin volume can make your face look thin and narrow, possibly making you appear older than you are.
Non-permanent fillers are usually used for deeper wrinkles, smoking lines on the lips and lip enhancement. These wrinkles appear in different stages of our lives.
In most cases the doctor will use an anesthetic to numb the area to be treated. After that he will inject the filler superficially into the skin where it is needed. Typical areas to be treated are: naso-labial folds, lips, smile lines, crow’s feet or worry lines, forehead wrinkles, depressions or scars. The sessions will take an average of 30 min. Amount of filler the doctor injects depends on many factors: area of injection, how deep the wrinkle and the expectation of the patient.
The effect of the filler is instant and the effect will last from 9-15 months. Some patients prefer to have a touch up after six months or later. In general, the effect of the filler will last longer if you maintain the treatment on a regular basis. If you choose not to continue your treatment, the body will eventually absorb the filler and leave no trace.
How Can Dermal Fillers Enhance My Appearance?
While dermal fillers are casually known as “wrinkle fillers,” they can do much more than just smooth out wrinkles, although they are excellent at this too! Here are a few of the common issues dermal fillers can help address:
- Smooth out lines around nose and mouth (a.k.a. marionette lines, smile lines, and parentheses)
- Enhance & restore volume to sunken cheeks or temples
- Diminish vertical lip lines
- Plump & enhance the lips
- Smooth out a chin crease
- Improve symmetry among facial features
