Some people are naturally blessed with smooth skin, plump lips, and full cheeks, but for most of us, mere mortals, getting a little extra boost is all you need for a glowing and fresh new look.
The latest treatments are fast, long-lasting, and designed for subtlety. Gone are the days when most patients are opting for significant procedures, now people are looking for ‘treatments’ which can be done in your lunch break.
Overall dermal fillers are safe ,though side effects can occur.Attending a reputable cosmetic clinic can reduce your risks and be supportively ,medically managed if this did occur. But what else do you need to know before you book? Here are some answers so you can be prepared for your Sunshine Coast skin clinic appointment.
What are dermal fillers?
Dermal fillers are an aesthetic gel-based cosmetic treatment injected into the skin to fill in wrinkles and add volume to soft tissue. They can be used to reshapes features, restore volume, and hydrate age affected skin.
There are different grades of fillers formulated for treating various areas such as the eyes, cheeks, mouth, jawline, and lips.
How do they work?
Fillers restore lost volume to your face and plump areas, so the deep-set lines are smoothed. Why is this needed? As we age, our bodies stop producing collagen and elastin, both of which contribute to the youthful look. The majority of experts believe we start losing collagen as early as age 25 and at a rate of about 2 percent each year. By the time you’re in your late twenties and early thirties, your body will have stopped producing collagen altogether.
Are fillers for prevention or just erasing wrinkles?
There’s absolutely no reason to run out and get filler treatments at the first sign of a wrinkle, but procedures are being used to treat an increasingly younger number of patients. According to the American Academy of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery, there has been an increase in patients under 30, and similar trend reports in Australia. If treatments commence earlier when the skin is more elastic and plump this has a delay in the appearance of ageing and looking more youthful..Starting later often requires more volume and complex treatments due to laxity of skin and volume loss.
Is it safe?
Although technically there is currently no long term (100-years) data on cosmetic botulinum and HA injectables to compare, the data that is reported so far indicates that there are no long-term health implications caused by these injectables. It’s always better to play the game of prevention than correction, just like establishing a good routine with sunscreen and staying out of the sun in the hottest times of the day to prevent aging.
How long does it last?
Results can typically last three to 18 months, but generally, one injection can make skin look plumper and smoother for several months. The reason dermal fillers are becoming increasingly popular is their ability to add volume and decrease wrinkles with a single visit to a clinic.
Research also suggests that dermal filler injections can stimulate collagen production, which can lead to fresher-looking skin in the long run and more spaced out or fewer appointments over time.
What do I need to know about specific fillers?
In Australia, it is against the law to advertise the names of prescription medicines such as dermal fillers. If you want to know more about the types of leading brands or fillers used, book a consultation, and our team can talk more openly about your choices and options available.
