Why should you choose dermal fillers over other cosmetic options? Whether this is your first experience with an aesthetic procedure or you're just new to cosmetic dermal fillers, take a look at the top reasons to choose this type of treatment.
You Want Fuller Lips
Even though there are other popular facial injectables, such as Botox, fillers are the best option to plump your lips. If you have naturally thin lips or you feel your lips are disproportionately uneven, this type of injectable can add volume and help you to create the perfect pout.
While fillers will plump your lips, the additional volume isn't permanent. Over time your body will metabolize the filler material, but this process can take an average of 12 to 18 months. This means two things—you will need to get repeat injections to maintain the same volume and if you aren't happy with your new look, your lips will return to a pre-procedure size over time.
You Want To Reduce Wrinkles
Creams, lotions, and serums can help to soften your skin, add a subtle smoothness, and may (after weeks or months of consistent use) minimize the appearance of some fine lines. But over-the-counter topicals won't eliminate wrinkles effectively. Unlike topical products, fillers add volume to the facial area. This can soften the appearance of wrinkles and give you a youthful appearance in as little as one doctor's office or medical spa visit.
You Want To Stop Sagging Facial Skin
Age can change the way your skin behaves. Your formerly taut face may feel or look somewhat saggy. The normal age-related loss of collagen and elastin can have visible effects that won't go away without intervention. Creams and other topical products are conservative firming treatments that some people prefer to start with. Even though these types of products can restore some firmness, they won't fill in contours or significantly reduce sagging in the same way that a dermal filler could.
You Want To Reduce The Appearance Of Acne Scars
Fillers do more than add volume to the lip area and stop the signs of aging. This type of injectable can also smooth acne scars. Hyaluronic acid-based injectables can fill out acne scars, reducing the depressions in your skin. This can create a more even skin texture and reduce the need for additional cosmetic products such as heavy concealers, liquid and cream foundations, or mineral powder.
