Facial fillers provide a viable way to treat a variety of skin conditions, including wrinkles, reduced volume, and fine lines. The solution is a safer option than cosmetic surgery. The procedure also makes it easier to transform and rejuvenate your appearance without significant downtime.
Why Fillers Are So Effective
Fillers are available in a variety of forms and types, like Restylane products and Sculptra to name a few of the most effective. As such, the most popular variants contain hyaluronic acid. This ingredient plays a key role in treating skin conditions by binding water molecules. The acid improves the skin's ability to retain moisture, thus causing your face to retain a naturally plumper and smoother look.
Though facial fillers provide an effective solution, they must be replaced regularly as the materials degrade over time. The frequency of replacement depends on a variety of factors, including formulation and the ingredient used to produce the fillers. When top-quality fillers are provided clinically by a cosmetic or facial plastic surgeon, like Dr. Patt in Houston, they can last anywhere from 12-24 months. Thus, follow-up treatments are needed over time.
Common Signs of Aging
Symptoms of aging typically occur at varying rates, starting from the tender age of 20, as especially when women and men reach their 40’s and 50’s. A range of physiological, lifestyle and environmental factors such as smoking, weather, diet, genetics, medications, and chronic disease all can influence these changes.
Common Signs Include:
- Marionette lines
- Upper and lower eyelids begin to sag
- Fine lines and wrinkles
- Crow's feet
- Sunken cheeks
- Frown lines
Thankfully, facial fillers can eradicate many of these signs and restore a smoother, attractive look. In turn, you can enjoy looking at your face in the mirror.
