Would you rather your friends notice your smile instead of your smile lines? Just over a decade ago, the only way to address signs of aging such as deep facial wrinkles was through a surgical procedure. Now you have a number of less invasive options for aesthetic improvement.
If you are looking for subtle facial rejuvenation with quick results, dermal fillers may provide the boost you’re looking for. Here are some of the advantages of fillers:
- They are less invasive than surgery
- There is little to no downtime after treatment
- They are a cost-effective way to get results
- Most products provide immediate improvement
Restore Volume and Youthful Radiance
So how do dermal fillers work their magic? They add volume to the face by plumping up the tissue, smoothing wrinkles and restoring a youthful appearance. There are many dermal fillers on the market today, and each of them has its own advantages for facial renewal.
JUVÉDERM®, for example, is often used to address signs of aging like those smile lines. It is one of our favorite wrinkle fillers because it is composed of hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring substance that adds volume and hydration to the skin. JUVÉDERM® injections take only about 15 minutes to complete, yet the results last for six to nine months. Here’s the truly wonderful thing about JUVÉDERM®—it works immediately!
Avoid Artificial Results—Choose an Experienced Injector
We’ve all seen pictures of celebrities with swollen features that look garish. In these unfortunate cases, an inexperienced practitioner may have used more filler than is actually necessary, or the product may have been injected in the wrong areas. To avoid this kind of outcome, choose your practitioner wisely! An experienced injector knows how much product is needed and has an intimate knowledge of facial anatomy, so your treatment can be personalized for your unique features. The goal is to create natural looking results from fillers that look refreshed and youthful, not overdone. Reviewing before-and-after photos is a good way to judge an injector’s skill and aesthetic sensibility.
