Whether consciously or subconsciously, people make judgements about you when they see your face. Fine lines and creases might cause them to think that you are older than you really are, or they might think that you look tired or upset. Because of this, you might be eager to make some changes that allow your outside to reflect the energetic, youthful, and lively spirit within. Your options may not sound optimal, however you do not want to undergo plastic surgery. When it comes to your body, your, skin, and your face, you are only interested in all-natural products and treatments.
Aren’t Fillers Just Another Type of Dangerous Chemical?
While fillers may sound like an intimidating chemical product, it is actually a compound that is already found naturally within your skin.
In youthful skin, you will find a high concentration of the natural viscous fluid carbohydrates present in connective tissue – these are the substances that cosmetic fillers are based on. The cosmetic filler works to bind and retain water within the skin, and is able to bind with large amounts of water molecules. These compounds keep the skin hydrated, allowing it to maintain its smoothness, firmness, volume, and elasticity.
Why Dermal Fillers?
As we age, our bodies produce less and less of this compound. Therefore, the older that we get, the less capable our skin becomes of retaining moisture. And you likely know that moisture is the key to having healthy, beautiful skin.
When you have dermal fillers added to your skin, your skin gets a boost that it has been lacking for some time. The dermal filler gets right to work bonding with water molecules many times its size, and this creates a quickly noticeable volumizing affect for your skin
The absorbed and retained moisture fills the gaps where fine lines and wrinkles had previously formed, causing these problems to diminish or disappear completely. As soon as the injections are made, it is possible to see a visible difference in the appearance of the skin.
As you moisturize your skin, and hydrate your body, you can see even greater results over the next few days following treatment. This period gives the dermal filler time to bond with water molecules and plump the skin. While these injections are typically used on the face, they can also be used to smooth lines on hands or to make your lips appear fuller.
How Long Do These Treatments Last?
Unfortunately, the dermal filler is not going to stay, and hold onto moisture for your skin cells, forever. The effects of dermal fillers typically wear off in approximately six to eight months after treatment. Because these are all natural elements that are naturally found within the body anyway, they are eventually absorbed into the body.
Is It Safe To Continue Using Dermal Fillers?
You may have heard horror stories about people who have become addicted to plastic surgery, or who have had so many facial injections that they can no longer make any facial expressions.
It is not necessary to have such concerns about returning once or twice a year for more dermal filler treatments. Because it is a natural element found in the body, there is little to no risk of any adverse reactions occurring, and you can return year after year for more injections without causing damage to your skin.
