Dermal Fillers: The Nonsurgical Fix to Looking Younger

By January 10, 2018News

We would be total liars if we said that we’ve never used dermal fillers on ourselves. After all, why wouldn’t you do it if you saw the incredible results! Dermal fillers not only make you look younger by adding volume to places where your face starts to sag a little, it makes you feel sexier! As you get older, your face starts to loose volume, which in turn makes you feel like you look older. Don’t waste any more time feeling any less than your beautiful, radiant self and come see what all the fuss is about surrounding dermal fillers!

What are dermal fillers?
As we age, our facial skin begins to sag as it loses elastin, collagen, and hyaluronic acid. Dermal fillers, such as Juvederm and Restylane, are injectables that are designed to reduce or eliminate folds, fine lines, and wrinkles. They also act as a volumizer by hydrating, reshaping, and lifting areas of the face that begin to droop. Most dermal fillers use natural ingredients, which are already present in normal skin, to restore youth and brilliance to the skin. The areas that are most often treated with fillers include:

  • Dark circles under the eyes
  • Cheeks
  • Nasolabial folds (smile lines)
  • Marionette lines
  • Chin (augmentation)
  • Jawline
  • Earlobes
  • Non-surgical nose jobs
  • Lips

Which area can benefit most from dermal fillers?
The area that we most often treat with fillers is the dark circles under the eyes, seeing as they are one of the biggest indicators of age visible on the face. Since the skin around the eyes is very thin, dark circles can begin to form due to the hallowing of the tear-through zone right below the eye. Although this is most prominent in middle-aged women and men, younger individuals can be genetically predisposed to it as well. With a dermal filler treatment, a small cushion is created between the upper layers of the skin and the veins, making those dark circles disappear! It’s that simple!

Why choose dermal fillers?
If you’re looking to refresh and renew your skin without undergoing an invasive procedure, dermal fillers might be the perfect solution for you! Dermal fillers have gained popularity over the past few years, seeing as they are less expensive than surgery, offer zero downtime, and the effects can last for several months. Fillers, when injected by an experienced health professional, can deliver natural-looking results that make you look better, not different!

How can you prevent bruising post-treatment?
Although the use of a numbing cream and the latest injection techniques make the process comfortable, there is the possibility of some bruising and swelling post-treatment. There is actually a lot you can do before your treatment to help prevent any bruising!

  1. Discontinue using medications, such as Ibuprofen, at least 2 weeks prior to the treatment, as they are blood thinners
  2. Stop taking any supplements or vitamins 2 weeks prior to the treatment
  3. Avoid alcohol 1-2 days prior to the treatment
