Do fillers ruin your face?
Fillers are one of the most popular cosmetic treatments performed in the United States, behind only Botox injections. Also known as dermal fillers, these treatments can address a variety of different cosmetic concerns, such as wrinkles, fine lines, sagging skin, sunken or hollow areas, and much more. There are a number of different fillers each with its own unique composition, however, the most popular active ingredient used in fillers is hyaluronic acid.
Dermal fillers are often referred to as wrinkle fillers, however, they can do much more than just smooth out wrinkles and creases in the skin. Common issues dermal fillers can address include:
– Smooth out lines around nose and mouth
– Restore volume to sunken cheeks & temples
– Diminish vertical lip lines
– Plump & enhance the lips
– Smooth out a chin crease
– Improve symmetry among facial features
There are many other uses of dermal fillers that are not listed above; for more information about the potential uses of dermal fillers, contact Dr. Rahi’s Anti-Aging and Integrative Aesthetics today.
The length of time that someone can use fillers and still see desirable results varies from patient to patient and depends on several factors, including:
– The physical health of the patient
– The presence of any underlying conditions
– How many treatments are used?
– The frequency of treatments
– The type of filler used
– The desired results of the patient
Even with the aforementioned factors, it is difficult to know how long someone can receive fillers because there is limited long-term data on its health effects. Furthermore, the current long-term data shows contradictory results, as some claim the fillers get better with time, while others claim it can cause adverse effects to one’s appearance.
If an individual decides to stop getting fillers, the lines they have been preventing start to get deeper, eventually developing into creases in the skin. The benefits of prior filler treatments will eventually be gone, but they would still have gained all the wrinkle-free years from their prior treatments.
This is the case of hyaluronic acid fillers, temporary fillers commonly used to treat signs of aging, including such brands as Juvederm, Voluma, Volbella, Vollure, and Restylane. The fillers add volume to hollowed areas and lines while they are present, then slowly dissolve over the next 12 to 24 months, depending on the type of filler that was used. As we age, we lose our facial volume due to fat, muscle, and bone loss, so more filler will be needed to get the same results for mature people when compared to younger individuals. However, this is due to the normal aging process, not because of any filler use.
When performed by a qualified and experienced clinician, fillers do not ruin one’s appearance. While they can address a wide number of cosmetic concerns, fillers cannot fix everything. If an individual opts for filler treatments too often, they can experience undesirable results, such as a puffy or swollen appearance. However, experienced clinicians can avoid this by recommending an effective treatment plan that appropriately meets the patient’s needs.
