When do you go from growing up to looking older? Many are surprised to learn that instead of looking older after hitting a certain age, anyone can look older after they start to develop wrinkles on the face. One of the first indicators that the aging process has begun is lost tissue volume in the skin in your face. Fortunately, you can choose from a wide variety of safe and effective dermal fillers to greatly slow down this process.
Most people don’t notice the aging process day-to-day because it is so slow and gradual. However, there are some things such as stress, illness, or yo-yo dieting that can cause a person to lose their facial volume suddenly. It is not unprecedented for some people to lose up to one-third of their mid-face volume in just one year’s time.
When you lose facial volume, your skin starts to sag. You start to develop jowls, and you begin to notice creases and static wrinkles on your face. Think about your face like a balloon. When the balloon is full of air, it is tight. But what happens when you let the air out of the balloon? It starts to sag, and eventually, it will shrivel up and wrinkle. This is the same thing that happens to your face as its volume begins to diminish.
For those who aren’t happy with the facial changes brought on by age but do not want or do not qualify for surgery, dermal fillers can help them restore their youthful appearance. If they keep up with their dermal fillers and other treatments designed to keep their skin looking healthy and their face looking full, they can drastically slow down the aging process.
For this reason, it is best for someone to begin using non-surgical dermal fillers as soon as they start to notice that they are losing facial volume. They can immediately restore their appearance and prevent the sagging and loosening of their skin.
Dermal fillers such as Juvederm® and Juvederm Voluma®, Restylane® Silk and Restylane® Lyft, Belotero Balance®, Sculptra®, and Radiesse® are injected underneath the skin and often come with a numbing agent. It is a minimally invasive procedure. Dermal fillers vary depending on the part of the face you’re going to have them injected in and the results you want to see.
While the results of these dermal fillers vary from patient to patient and product to product, each one will need to be touched up roughly every few months in order to maintain a youthful appearance. Many people see this as a benefit, especially if they are not ready for the permanent results that come with surgical procedures.
