As we age, our skin naturally loses its hyaluronic acid (HA) which leads to wrinkles, fine lines and sagginess of the skin. Lack of hyaluronic acid speeds up the ageing process and makes our skin look dull and old. Filler treatment is a potent skin treatment which helps in slowing the ageing process and gives us younger and fuller skin.
Fillers prevent ageing by replacing the lost hyaluronic acid with bio-compatible hyaluronic acid to restore the skin’s plumpness and serve as a natural moisturizer. A thin needle with tiny amounts of dermal fillers is injected into the problem areas to regain volume, smoothen skin and improve hydration.
The injected fillers stimulate the growth of collagen and elastin which contribute towards healthier skin with improved texture. It is a quick, safe and easy process which is highly recommended by dermatologists all over the world.
Benefits of Filler Treatment
Filler treatments can be used to aim different skin problems which include treating scars, reducing folds, fine lines, wrinkles and sagginess. It is used by both, women and men to get a younger look with smooth skin.
Here are some of the benefits of filler treatment:
- Advanced dermal fillers are made of hyaluronic acid to naturally smoothen lines, rehydrate skin and restore the natural volume of the skin – making you look younger.
- Filler treatments are generally used to reduce wrinkles around the eyes, lips, cheeks and neck.
- It can also help in lip enhancement giving them much plumper and fuller uplift.
How much time does the treatment take?
The downtime for filler treatment is usually 30-40 minutes with instantaneous results. It is a safe, reliable and effective treatment which helps to slow down the ageing process without any significant side effects.
You may experience slight redness, minimal swelling and discomfort but these subside within a few days to a week from the treatment. In order to reduce the pain or discomfort, dermatologists add lidocaine, an anaesthetic in the fillers which numbs the treated area for a while.
Once the treatment is completed, your doctor will recommend to you all the things that you have to take care of. From using a particular skin cream to avoiding itching or scratching excessively on the treated area, your dermatologist will help you gather all the right information needed to have a successful skin treatment.
An alternative to filler treatments is anti-ageing injections which use anti-ageing products to help get a bright, smooth and fresh-looking skin. The injected solution then stimulates the growth of necessary compounds such as elastin and collagen which are necessary for maintaining healthy and beautiful skin.
