Everything You Ever Needed to Know About Fillers

Are you beginning to see your years written across your face? No one can escape the natural aging process that brings on wrinkles and loose skin, but you can do something about it to maintain a fresh face. In the past, women looking for a youthful appearance forked over a costly sum and prepared themselves for the lengthy recovery process of a facelift. Today, you can use your lunch break to get a facial filler, and then head straight back to work. According to Forbes, fillers can delay the need for a facelift for up to a decade, and eventually innovations to the procedure might erase the demand for facelifts altogether.

 How It Works

The four common types of modern fillers—Restylane, Perlane, Prevelle Silk, and Juvederm—all inject hyaluronic acid, a natural substance that creates full and youthful skin. The injections work to improve skin elasticity, fill out creases and folds in the skin, provide more skin support, and plump up hollow areas near the cheekbones and eyes. Although fillers of the past used animal products, often resulting in allergic reactions, injections that use hyaluronic acids rarely come with side effects except for occasional mild bruising.

 When to Get It

Most doctors don’t recommend fillers until you reach your 40s or 50s, although some report younger cases that were accepted based on individual evaluations. The effects of a facial filler are not permanent, so repeat procedures might be needed after several months or years. Fillers will not work on extremely saggy skin, and your doctor can help you decide if facial fillers will work for you.

 A youthful image will provide a boost in confidence, and a smooth appearance will often improve a declining career that favors fresh faces over aging maturity.
