A non-surgical treatment for facial wrinkles, facial fillers involve the injection of special solutions beneath the skin. Our facial skin becomes wrinkled as we age, and this is primarily due to a loss of moisture, a decrease in the amount of subcutaneous fat and thinning of the skin itself. Our bodies also produce less collagen as we age, and this results in brittle skin that wrinkles more easily.
Facial fillers help to plump up the skin by introducing a substance that either works as a volume-increasing substance or as an agent that draws in moisture. These are not permanent fixes, but having a facial filler treatment performed on a regular basis can certainly help to restore a youthful appearance. It’s an ideal treatment for those who are not yet ready for something more drastic, such as a facelift.
Types of Facial Fillers
There are various kinds of fillers available today. The most well-known and commonly performed filler treatment involves the injection of a solution containing hyaluronic acid. This acid is found naturally in the body, but only in small amounts. When injected beneath the skin, the area is plumped because it now holds a greater amount of moisture.
What Clients Should Expect
We will first consult with the client and examine the face closely. If the wrinkles are not yet permanently set, a facial filler procedure will likely help to smooth out the creases and fine lines. After the injections, the affected area will begin to lift and plump almost immediately. Most treatments take well under an hour to perform.
After treatment, the individual may experience a bit of swelling at the injection sites, but this soon dissipates. The full effect takes only a day or two. The added volume smooths out the skin, virtually erasing small creases and facial lines.
Some facial fillers yield results lasting for up to 10 months. It’s perfectly safe to repeat the injections after the volume begins to decrease over time. This is one of the biggest advantages of filler injections. Facial fillers do not involve surgery, blistering of the skin or skin resurfacing. This type of procedure is suitable for all skin types, and there is no recovery period after the treatment is completed.
