You may have considered getting dermal fillers in the past, but perhaps something has always stopped you. Maybe it’s that you don’t know that much about the procedure, or perhaps you’re afraid you wouldn’t like the results.
Cosmetic procedures like fillers are extremely popular. The number of procedures has increased from 2.6 million in 2016 to 3.4 million in 2020. Simply put, fillers’ benefits are part of the reason why this type of procedure has become so fashionable.
At Defying Time, Dr. Catherine Moore — as well as the rest of our staff — understands not only the process of administering fillers but the reasons why so many patients are looking for them. And as such, we want to let you in on the secret.
First of all, you might not know much about fillers, what they do, or what they are made of. At our Willow Park office, we offer three different kinds: Restylane®, Revanesse® Versa™, and Juvéderm®. These types utilize hyaluronic acid, a chemical that is naturally created in the body during youth.
Hyaluronic acid helps to smooth, hydrate, and plump your skin. As you age, your body begins to produce less of it. With fillers, you can reintroduce this beneficial compound to create some of the much-desired effects of younger-looking skin.
But maybe you knew this already. Maybe you were informed why people get fillers but not why they have become so popular over the three decades they’ve existed for cosmetic treatment.
The reasons, it seems, are because of the five benefits listed below, which many people forget to mention when they discuss the popularity of fillers in terms of how they can make you look younger or boost your self-confidence.
Yes, fillers can help rectify the issues many of us experience due to age. But it isn’t always discussed that fillers are extremely versatile and treat many age-related problems.
Certain fillers can be injected into your cheeks to improve a hollow or sunken look, while others can be used to smooth out the wrinkles or fine lines in the face. Still, another option is to inject fillers into the lips or hands to create a plumper look where age has removed some fullness. You can also use fillers to amplify the contours in your face and even lines in the chin area. If you thought fillers were only for fine lines, it’s time to think again.
Unlike with other treatments, such as Botox®, you will not need to wait days or weeks for the procedure results. Fillers start to show signs of working within hours of the treatment, making it feel like instant effects. This is another reason why fillers are so popular!
When you receive fillers, you won’t have to spend a lot of time recovering from the procedure, which isn’t uncomfortable and doesn’t create many side effects. The only common symptoms associated with fillers are swelling, bruising, and itching, and these usually decrease fairly quickly.
While we’ve already discussed that fillers can be used to treat many specific aging issues, they are also adaptable in other ways. Fillers can easily be paired with Botox or another treatment to create enhanced effects. What’s more, the fact that there are so many types makes it easy for you and Dr. Moore to achieve precisely the results you want for your specific needs.
According to the US Food and Drug Administration, studies have shown that most people are satisfied with the results of their filler injections. In this way, word of mouth and repeat procedures have helped make fillers one of the most popular cosmetic procedures available for anti-aging results.
