When you think about injectables, you may think of plump lips. While that is one use, injectables are used for a variety of anti-aging treatments. They are an excellent non-surgical alternative for people wanting to turn back the clock.
Just like you can use injectables to get perfect, pouty lips, you can plump up other areas. If you are curious about how this works, you first want to understand how a wrinkle forms. Your skin uses hyaluronic acid, elastin, and collagen to maintain its structure. As you age, you make less of these components.
As weakness develops, and your skin naturally loses some of its elasticity, wrinkles form. Injecting hyaluronic acid into the area helps plump the area and re-creates the structure. Done by an experienced practitioner, this process looks natural. You look like yourself, but fresher. Results are not permanent but are long-lasting. You may find yourself wanting a touch-up after nine months or so.
Losing volume in your face is a normal part of the aging process. The results can make you look older and tired. If you find yourself frequently assuring people you slept just fine, thanks, or touching up your concealer at midday, you may want to consider dermal fillers. The lightweight filler used for treating under eye hollows moves naturally with your expressions, creating a natural, more well-rested look. Depending on how your body metabolizes the fillers, results can last anywhere from 6 months to a year.
What to Expect
The idea of having injections in your face may make you nervous, but the procedures are remarkably safe. It is important to work with an experienced injector, to get results that make you happy. You may experience a little swelling and light bruises after the injections, as well as mild discomfort during the process.
You should feel fine immediately after your injections and can return to your routine immediately. Avoid strenuous exercise for a day or so while the fillers settle in.
