What to Know About Filler Treatments
Benefits of Fillers
As we age, our skin loses its elasticity due to the decreased production of collagen. Collagen keeps the skin tight, and when it is no longer produced, the skin loses its elasticity and results in sagging, wrinkles, and other signs of aging. Fillers help to temporarily soften wrinkles and lines and tighten skin by helping to increase collagen production. Many individuals who notice signs of aging, wrinkles, lines, and more rely on fillers. Whether you are 30 or 50, fillers can help you look as young as you feel. Aging is inevitable, but with today’s advanced technologies, you can renew your look.
Types of Fillers
There are various types of fillers that help to relieve different aging concerns. Some want fillers to help get rid of wrinkles and lines, and others want them to plump up their lips and cheeks. Fillers with hyaluronic acid such as Juvederm help to eliminate wrinkles. Hyaluronic acid is a natural substance found in the human body. When it is injected into the skin, it can reduce wrinkles for up to one year.
Juvederm Voluma XC is meant for those who want more volume in their cheeks. As we age, the skin sags and causes a loss of volume in the cheek area. When Juvederm Voluma XC is injected into the cheeks, it adds volume and lifts the cheeks. One treatment can last nearly two years. It can also be injected into the chin area to help shape it by adding volume to it. When injected into the chin, results will last up to one year.
Botox is probably the most common filler you have heard of. It is FDA approved and temporarily reduces the appearance of frown lines, crow’s feet, and forehead lines. Botox is injected directly into the muscles that control frowning, squinting, and smiling to temporarily reduce muscle activity, making your face visibly smoother. After treatment, there is minimal downtime, and results can often be noticed within two days; full results are seen in 30 days. Results will look natural and last up to four months. Botox treatments will need to be continued, as it is not a permanent treatment.
Lastly, Jeuveau is a prescription medicine injected into the muscles that cause fine lines. It is FDA-approved and works to improve moderate to severe frown lines between the eyebrows. Complete results are noticed within 30 days of treatment. Treatments will need to be continued to continue seeing results.
