Lose your fear of syringes! This is the easiest, most affordable, and non-risky way to eliminate the obvious signs of ageing on your face. Facial fillers are a great option for those who want to avoid surgery at all costs.
Fillers have been a juicy business for a decade. Dermatologists and cosmetic surgeons have found in botulinum toxin and hyaluronic acid the way to positively impact the appearance of patients who want to erase wrinkles and shape their face.
Demand is on the rise, as fading of the years is achieved in just 30 minutes with anti wrinkle injections done in a quick visit to the doctor’s office.
The less experienced practitioners are, the more risks there are. So check the credentials of the place or specialist you plan to go to.
The great challenge of the ‘filler’ solution
Doctors, surgeons and dermatologists certified and endorsed by associations of plastic and aesthetic surgery around the world regularly welcome patients in their offices who have become a caricature of themselves. Many need to reconstruct poorly done filler work by pseudo-doctors or spa clinic aestheticians, who offer and inject substances that are not endorsed or without professional knowledge of the anatomy of the face.
Hence the importance of seeking the advice of cosmetic surgeons backed by prestigious institutions. The truth is that a bad application can have severe consequences, ranging from skin necrosis to permanent deformation of one or more areas of the face.
Specialists advise that, once you decide to use a facial filler, ask your doctor to show you the product and use new syringes before dispensing to verify that everything is reliable and that, initially, you start with a little of the product.
If more volume is desired, subsequent applications can be carried out until the desired results are obtained without losing naturalness. Sometimes just one millilitre of the product can make a big difference in facial expression.
An old acquaintance
Botulinum toxin or botox has become the most famous filler substance over the years. It is a neuromuscular blocker that causes certain muscle contractions to be obstructed and thus, erases wrinkles.
A specialist in anti wrinkle injections will ensure that strategically placed, it fades wrinkles on the forehead, eyelids and neck that age the face. The cost of the application varies according to the area to be corrected and the doctor who applies it.
We have gone from erasing expression lines or gaining volume on the cheekbones to almost completely transforming the face thanks to fillers since their use can delay the need for any cosmetic surgery.
Is it possible to contour the face with fillers? Yes, the filler most often used for this type of procedure is hyaluronic acid. It allows a kind of non-surgical rhinoplasty where the defects of the nose are camouflaged, making it appear more profiled.
It is also possible to accentuate the angles and the jawline to mark the limits of the face and rejuvenate the lower third. It can be put on the chin to increase it and, in this way, hide the double chin and improve the proportions of the face.
It is also used on the cheekbones to restore lost volume and to improve the furrows that form on the sides of the mouth. It also works very well on the edge of the eye socket to accentuate the eyebrows and thus rejuvenate the eyes.
What results are obtained?
Thanks to these medical grade substances that are used, they offer volume where it has been lost due to the action of gravity and the passage of time, and it is possible to recover a more youthful appearance. They provide long-lasting effects. The most popular is hyaluronic acid, which has been shown to have high levels of safety, compatibility with the body and excellent results.
