While you can’t fend off the signs of aging indefinitely, there are steps you can take to effectively fight the sagging, wrinkles, and loss of volume that are a natural part of the aging process. One of the best ways to do it: face filler treatments.
What are dermal fillers? How do face fillers work? In this blog, we’ll look at the pros and cons of minimally-invasive face filler injections and what they can do to improve sagging lines and wrinkles and boost your confidence.
What is a Face Filler?
Injectable fillers are soft, gel-like substances that are used for anti-aging treatments. Fillers may be injected in areas like the lips, cheeks, chin, jawline, and temples to address hollowness, sagging, and lines caused by loss of fat, muscle, and skin elasticity.
Unlike Botox or Dysport injections that are designed to soften fine lines and wrinkles by minimizing muscle movement, face filler injections like Restylane, Juvederm, Voluma, Sculptra, and Bellafill are designed to add volume, filling in sunken areas to create plump, youthful results.
These minimally-invasive procedures are quick and relatively painless. They deliver instant results, making these treatments ideal for anyone that is looking to refresh and rejuvenate their appearance.
Benefits of Face Filler Injections
How do facial fillers work and what benefits can you expect from them? Dermal fillers are made using natural and synthetic ingredients, so you have a choice about what you put into your body and what you are able to accomplish with treatment. When administered by a trained professional, these fillers can deliver subtle rejuvenation that freshens your appearance and fights the most common signs of aging.
The main benefit of a facial filler is that it can supply instant results that improve your appearance and your confidence, plumping the skin and smoothing creases. They can address the fine lines found around the lips and deeper zones like the nasolabial folds (also known as smile lines). In addition, these treatments are minimally invasive and can be completed on an outpatient basis, with very little downtime for recovery.
Oftentimes, patients can return to normal activities immediately following treatment, and intense physical activity can resume in as little as 24 to 48 hours, in most cases. While it can take a few weeks for fillers to fully settle, you will see immediate improvement. Depending on the fillers you choose, results could last from a few months to a couple of years.
How Much Are Face Fillers?
Once you’ve located a reputable cosmetic doctor and have learned all that you can about dermal fillers, your next question will probably be: How much are face fillers?
The answer will depend mainly on the work that you want done and the type of filler that you choose. A single syringe of dermal filler could cost anywhere from about $500-1,000. For reference, a 1 mL syringe could potentially be used to address heavier creases like nasolabial folds, while it would take about half of a syringe for a modest lip augmentation procedure.
Overall, most people who are dissatisfied with their appearance due to common signs of aging like sagging or wrinkles find that face fillers are a convenient and affordable way to see an immediate improvement.
