Time takes its toll on all of us, with wrinkles and lines marking its claim over our youth. While aging can be sped up by our lifestyle choices, genetics, or stress levels, there’s no denying that we’re all bound to lose our youthful skin in due time.
But thanks to revolutions in the science of cosmetics, we don’t have to take this lying down. We can take control over the signs of aging and delay or undo their effects on our features. Thanks to modern technology, the young can enjoy their youth for longer, and the old are free to reclaim some of their lost youth.
This is where dermal fillers, a groundbreaking and highly popular facial rejuvenation technique sought after by men and women alike, enter the picture. It provides a method for reducing facial aging and highlighting existing features to maximize our natural youth and beauty.
Dermal Fillers Sunshine Coast
Dermal fillers are often considered interchangeable with Botox, but nothing could be farther from the truth. While many cosmetic service providers give customers the option of availing of both procedures, Botox works by paralyzing sub dermal facial muscles, whereas dermal fillers increase volume beneath the skin. Both can reduce the signs of aging such as wrinkles, and are often used together to produce a greater effect.
Dermal fillers can even out bumpy skin, increase lip fullness, and solve the problem of hollow cheeks. There are two kinds of fillers: natural and synthetic, each coming with a set of advantages and tradeoffs. Naturally derived fillers are produced using natural extracts and similar substances found in nature, while synthetic fillers are created using man-made components.
Naturally derived fillers are effective for a shorter period of time—six months to a year and a half—but are less likely to result in unwanted side effects. Synthetic fillers, in contrast, can be effective for two years and beyond, but may prove riskier. The best way to know how you might be affected by the procedure is to seek the opinion of a certified cosmetic professional with your medical history.
The safety of the procedure is generally accepted, regardless of the type of filler used, but there’s no competing with the certainty that comes with having the procedure performed by a bona fide cosmetic surgeon. There are, naturally, some complications to be expected such as pain, bruising, and fatigue. These are normal in the weeks after the procedure; however, if they don’t subside after some time, inform your surgeon or attending physician.
The results of the procedure can be seen as early as seventy two hours after the operation, and most patients are able to go back to business as usual –save for some slight swelling and bruising, which is again, perfectly normal— within a week.
