What Are Injectable Fillers?
The process of developing wrinkles might be more complicated than you realize. Wrinkles can actually occur for a wide variety of reasons, including tense facial muscles, skin laxity issues and a loss of fatty tissue. Injectable fillers are designed to physically add volume to a patient’s face in order to soften wrinkles around the eyes, nose and lips.
These products are made from a variety of different substances, but most contain hyaluronic acid, a dose of collagen and a gel filler. In addition to adding volume to the face, they also stimulate the production of elastin and collagen.
The Importance of Natural Proteins
Elastin and collagen account for nearly 25 percent of all protein in our bodies. When we are younger, our bodies produce an abundance of these proteins in order to protect our skin and maintain its elasticity. Over the years, however, the production slows down and our skin begins to age. Combine that with a loss of soft tissue just below the skin, and it generally results in deep folds, fine lines and wrinkles. In order to combat these issues, we must add volume to the face while stimulating the natural production of elastin and protein.
All patients must schedule a consultation with our team in order to discuss their cosmetic goals as well as their medical history. With this information, we can help you come up with a treatment plan that will perfectly suit your own needs while providing you with the best results. Injectable fillers can be a standalone treatment or used in conjunction with other procedures, and some patients even benefit from the use of multiple fillers.
There is virtually no recovery time with injectable fillers. This means you can head right back to work or your other daily errands immediately following your appointment.
How Many Sessions Do I Need?
Some injectable fillers require multiple sessions before the cosmetic issues are taken care of while others can help you reach your goals in just a single treatment. The injections immediately add volume to your face, but the results should improve over the course of the following weeks. This is because your body will continue to produce additional collagen while naturally moisturizing the area.
