3 Things to Know Before Getting into Injectable Dermal Fillers
When it comes to the world of skincare, our number one enemy from now until forever, will always be aging. As we age, as does our skin and as our skin ages, it loses vital skincare proteins known as collagen and elastin. These vital proteins are responsible for providing our skin with its soft, supple, smooth structure, look and feel – while simultaneously ensuring our skin has the elastic, youthful texture that prevents it from being overly stretched and losing its naturally, youthful texture and its ability to snap back from bouts of trauma. The fact is that we all want full cheeks, smooth skin, plump lips – some people have them naturally, while others get a little help from their dermatologists with injectables such as dermal fillers. The fact is that while in years past, the use of injectable dermal fillers was relatively secretive, and often frowned upon by most of society, in today’s world, more and more men and women are completely open to their, as they have become a relatively popular, minimally invasive means of achieving the look you want, with little to no side effects or downtime. However, despite the recent popularity and how effective injectables have proven to be, many patients are still relatively uneducated on them and their use. Therefore, to better educate you on all these is to know about injectable dermal fillers and their use, the team at Alluring Image Medspa offer us these important things to know.
· Hyaluronic Acid All the Way
The fact is that when we are discussing injectables there are a number of different categories we might be speaking of, and then within each category, there are an even larger number of specific products that might help as well. To begin, injectable cheek fillers aren’t the same as other injectables like the popular neurotoxin, Botox. As the most popular injectable treatment around, Botox essentially is designed to “freeze” the muscles beneath the skin, in order to reduce the presence of wrinkles, that are caused by our facial movements and expressions. However, when it comes to common cheek fillers like Juvéderm and Restylane fillers, these products use a naturally-occurring compound (which is also lost as we age) known as Hyaluronic Acid. When using Juvéderm or Restylane fillers, their HA base helps to pull in much needed moisture and is responsible for not only hydrating the skin, but to give it its especially plump, hydrated look. When injected through Juvéderm or Restylane fillers the HA is replenished and helps to naturally plump the inner skin, acting as a natural filler in itself, and helping patients to achieve the soft, supple, plumped, wrinkle-free look they’ve been after for years.
· Lasts for Months
Another important thing to understand about HA based injectables such as Juvéderm fillers, is that they can not only add volume and reduce wrinkles after only one treatment, but their amazing results will typically last for months at a time, for the most part anywhere from 4-12 months in many cases. The good part of this is that unlike Botox, Restylane and Juvéderm fillers are easily reversed and you can switch up looks every few months.
· Quality Filler Treatments are Invisible
Considering the amazing high-level versatility of Juvéderm fillers, and their ability to work as everything from cheek fillers, to the lips, forehead and more – its important to have a dermatologist or medical professional who knows how to properly inject. The fact is that it is easy for an unqualified person to give someone unnaturally pouty lips, and giant cheeks, or even a bulging forehead. Therefore, it is vital that you see a professional who knows what they’re doing and is very experienced. A quality treatment should look completely natural, while still being pouty and plump.
Now when it comes to injectable dermal fillers, there is definitely a lot more that you should know, however this is a good point at which to start from. Its vital that you choose a quality person, who knows how to inject before allowing them to work on you.
