Facial fillers are becoming very popular with the average citizen. In the past, only those with money could afford to have surgical procedures to remove the signs of aging.
Thanks to the introduction of nonsurgical injectable wrinkle fillers, you can have the wrinkles and lines removed and the whole process won’t take 30 minutes.
Many choose this option because it is much less expensive than the face lifts of the past. Although the results won’t be as dramatic as what you would obtain from a face-lift, you are sure to be happy with how they make you look.
With nonsurgical injectable wrinkle fillers, the muscle under a wrinkle will not be relaxed. Rather the crease or line is filled using one of these products which makes the wrinkles almost disappear.A number of filler types are offered, with hyaluronic acid fillers being the most popular.
Hyaluronic acid is naturally found in connective tissues of the body. One reason this type of product appears to be increasing in popularity is new medical evidence which shows that repeated use may stimulate the natural production of collagen. This will help to naturally decrease some wrinkles and lines. In addition, there is some medical evidence which suggests continued use leads to smaller doses needed to produce the same effect.
Juvederm is made with hyaluronic acid and can be used to soften the folds between the mouth and nose. It may also be used for small wrinkles above the top lip or wrinkles on the upper and lower face. If you wish to have fuller lips, the injection may be used to accomplish this goal also. Results typically last for anywhere for six months to a year.
Injections using hyaluronic acid also restore fullness to the skin. There are certain things you must do before having a procedure of this type. Avoid herbal supplements, aspirin and non-steroidal anti-inflammatory medications along with high doses of vitamin E. Studies have shown that these products may increase the bruising and swelling that are not uncommon at the site of the injection.
Be aware that there are some risks to using a product of this type. You may have an allergic reaction to the injection or you may find that tiny bumps form under the skin. These bumps may be permanent. The longer the wrinkle filler lasts, the more likely you are to experience side effects. Consider this when determining which wrinkle filler is best for you.
The Tyndall effect is another issue. With this condition, you may notice a bluish skin discoloration which can remain in place for months. Treatments are available for this if you do notice blue skin.
When determining whether or not these injectable wrinkle fillers are right for you, one thing to consider is the skill of the practitioner. if the practitioner does not administer the products correctly, skin cell death may result. Make sure you check the credentials of any practitioner you choose to use for a procedure of this type.
Choosing the right practitioner is of importance also as he or she will know which product will work best for your wrinkles and lines. Juvederm is good for anyone who has moderate to severe folds and wrinkles on the face. Those with severe allergies, especially to bacterial proteins, should not make use of hyaluronic acid products though. Discuss all with the practitioner to ensure you get the product that is right for you.
