When do most people start to show their age? Some people are fortunate in that they are able to maintain their youthful appearance well into their 40’s. However, most people start to show the signs of aging when they are in their 30’s. When you’re young, you have a full and round face. This fullness is a result of fat and moisture that is stored in your mid-face. Losing facial volume has a definite impact on the way that you look and on the way that you are perceived by others. Fortunately, facial volume can be restored with dermal fillers.
Restoring Facial Volume with Dermal Fillers
Dermal fillers are a great tool for restoring facial volume. They can give you a more youthful appearance. The sooner you use dermal fillers, the quicker you will see results. The sooner you use fillers, the more dramatic the results will be.
If a person starts using dermal fillers in their 30’s when they first notice volume loss, they put themselves in the best position to retain their youthful appearance. However, if a person waits until they are in their 40’s or 50’s when volume loss is already severe, the results of dermal fillers will be minimal.
What Are Dermal Fillers?
Dermal fillers are substances that are injected underneath the skin. This is a minimally invasive treatment. The purpose of the treatment is to restore facial volume. There are a number of different dermal fillers that are currently being used. Different fillers have different benefits. Some are a little bit thicker and can be used to add volume to the mid-face and dermals. Others are little bit thinner and may produce the desired results in or around the lips.
What Should I Expect from Dermal Filler Treatments?
Injections are a non-surgical form of treatment. The injection may produce slight discomfort, but this will pass quickly. In most cases, the injection treatment takes around 30 minutes. Once the injection is finished, the results of the injection are immediately noticeable. Any bruising, swelling, or itching will be temporary.
Fillers can last up to six months before they need to be touched up. They are an excellent way to combat the visible signs of aging.
