Some signs of aging process can feel more devastating to experience than others. For example, a person may not feel terribly overwhelmed when they see a few gray hairs. These can be easily covered with hair dye. What really bothers most people is the signs of aging that seem more difficult to treat, like the loss of facial volume. We are here to tell you that you have no need to worry. Dermal fillers are a great way to help you restore facial volume.
Is Botox a Dermal Filler?
It is common for people to use the terms dermal fillers and Botox interchangeably. Both treatments offer age defying benefits, but they are not the same. Botox treats dynamic wrinkles and relaxes the facial muscles.
Fillers are used to replace lost facial volume. They can be compared to the air in a balloon. Think of how the texture of a balloon changes as time passes and air is lost. All that is needed is for a person to add more air to the balloon and then the texture of it goes back to being tight and wrinkle free. This is how dermal fillers work.
Where Can Fillers Be Used?
Various parts of the face can benefit from different forms of fillers. The cheeks are not the only areas that lose volume as you get older. You will likely see that your temples start to look hollow, and the area under your eyes will look dark and hollow. Your lips will also lose volume and start to have wrinkles. Fillers can be used in all of these places in order to replace the loss volume and provide a variety of other benefits.
It is common to use fillers in the lips in order to address smoker’s lines. Dermal fillers that are used in the lips offer a twofold benefit. First, a person can get back some of the volume they lost. Or a person may have just been born with lips that were naturally thin and can get that attractive pout they have always wanted. The second benefit is that the filler will contain active ingredients that help the lips to stay hydrated and moisturized.
