Dermal fillers

A Few Things You Need To Know If You Want To Try Dermal Fillers. How many times you find yourself in front of the mirror, stretching your face up, pinching your cheeks, wishing they were fuller and lifted…? Well, some people don’t need to do that, as they already naturally have all that, if you’re not among the lucky ones – and you wish you were - don’t worry: that’s what fillers, and other treatments, are there for! We live in an age where skin treatments really evolved for the best: their effect is now incredibly natural-looking, they are not just “for the rich” and they are not dangerous for you or your skin. But, keep in mind, that the “success” of the treatment also depends on… you! If you’re wondering why and how this also depends on you, keep reading this article! We will give you all the information you need to know about dermal fillers.

1. Fillers With Hyaluronic Acid

First of all, keep in mind that we are not talking about Botox and similar – which work by “anesthetizing”, in some way, the muscles of the face – these two types of treatment (Botox and fillers) work, in fact, in a very different way. Fillers basically “fill” the wrinkles, their main ingredient used to be collagen, but this has now been replaced by hyaluronic acid. This peculiar acid is able to moisturize skin – and to keep it moisturized overtime – and “plump” it. Its use is very important considering that, as we grow up, the production of this acid in our body diminishes, that’s why you can also find many creams that have hyaluronic acid, but, of course, creams are too weak to really fill the skin: this product is really effective only if injected.

2. It Only Takes One Injection

Yes, you’ve read well. There’s a reason hyaluronic acid’s injections became so popular and that reason is, among others, its incredible long-lasting effectiveness after the very first injection. The treatment usually lasts between 3 to 6 months and it’s also said, according to some researches, that these injections help producing collagen, which makes your skin look glowy and fresh overtime.

3. If It’s Good, No One Will Notice

Many times, when we look at someone’s full and plumped lips, we have no doubt about the fact they had a filler – I’m sure you’ve heard the term “duck lips” – and that’s not how a good treatment should look like. Always rely on a good “injector”, to avoid this fake and unnatural effect: a good filler, in fact, is one that no one notice and that makes your lips look naturally full. The change has to be subtle.

4. Filler Techniques Are All New

Times have changed and, with them, the way many treatments are done: filler is one of these. The thing that researchers mostly try to obtain is a natural effect, and we can really say we made great strides in this regard. Filler was first injected directly in the nasolabial folds, which gave, of course, a not-so-natural effect to the face, but, as we just said, things have changed and filler is now injected in other parts of the face to “plump” the skin and, most of all, to avoid the skin to sag lower and that’s the trick that gives an imperceptible and good looking effect to your face. We can say that the main goal is, then, to lift the face and smooth smile lines.

5. A Good Injector Is The Key

Let me ask you a question: when you have a health problem, who do you turn to? Who do you search for? I’m sure the answer is the same for everyone: a good doctor. I bet you wouldn’t put yourself, and your health, in the hands of someone you don’t trust, and you must apply the same principle when choosing the professional who’s going to do your filler. If, by any chance, you know someone who has done filler, ask them where they went to (if you like what you see, of course!) or else, find a certificate doctor (or a physician or a dermatologist) and search for information about him/her: each person has its own method when working, and its own philosophy. Be sure to talk to your doctor and analyse with him/her your situation, to find the solution that best suits you and, also, don’t you ever forget that, as any other medical treatment, you might risk infections and other worse things: hence the need of a good injector!

6. “Preventative” Fillers

Don’t worry, you don’t need to rush to book your appointment to the doctor but, according to some statistics, there’s an always increasing number of young people (under thirty) having fillers, surgery, and similar, to prevent wrinkles to form. And, actually, some doctors say that starting early might really have benefits over time: it seems, in fact, that those who start young, age better. If you are still young, but you don’t want feel like doing such treatments yet, you can also prevent your skin by just using sunscreen and other specific face creams and serums.

7. Not Just One Type Of Filler

As we said above, filler’s main ingredient is hyaluronic acid, but what makes the difference between the different types of fillers is the size of the particles. Yes, you read right! Some, for example, are specifically made to treat cheekbones, while others are used to plump your lips. If you put yourself in the hands of a good doctor he/she will surely suggest you the best treatment for you.

8. Filler Gone Wrong? Don’t Panic!

If your filler didn’t come out the way you wanted to, you don’t need to worry because it can be fixed! Thank God, filler is not like surgery and it can be easily fixed using a particular enzyme that, if injected into the skin, simply dissolves the product, making you “go back” to the time you had no filler. Another way it can be fixed is by adding more product to “balance” the treatment you already had.

9. Why And When You Shouldn’t Have Fillers

There are some situations in which is better to avoid doing a filler, if you’re pregnant or breastfeeding, for example. Also avoid going to the dentist if you just had a filler: he might touch and stretch your face in ways that might “move” the product in your face. In any case, always talk to your doctor before getting your treatment, he will notice if you have some kind of problem that doesn’t allow you to have a filler.

10. Touch-ups For Long Results

As we mentioned above, this treatment is not definitive and only lasts a few months (about six), which can have its positive and negative effects: if you like the result of your treatment, in fact, you’ll need to have touch-ups after 6 months to keep the result obtained from the previous treatment, which can be kind of annoying after a while, on the other hand, though, if you don’t really like the result or you wanted to try it “just for fun” you won’t have to worry, because the treatment will fade away on its own.
