The 411 on Dermal Fillers

compact-mirror-faceIf looking in the mirror every morning is causing more anxiety than joy— due to the signs of aging— then it might be time to consider getting dermal fillers. As a more affordable solution to wrinkled skin than going under the knife, dermal fillers have been known to give individuals the look they desire without having to take a second mortgage out. Read on to learn more about dermal fillers.

Botox: As the most popular dermal filler on the market, Botox is used to fill in lines and wrinkles around the eyes and the forehead— leaving patients with a younger and smoother looking complexion. Made from botulinum toxin A, Botox is designed to inhibit the muscle movement in the skin— which is why Botox is used now for more than cosmetic procedures. The best part about Botox is that people will see full results in just a week— which means that if you have a big event or special day coming up, you can get Botox just in time to celebrate. Due to its temporary nature, Botox injections need to be administered every 4-6 months in order to see the full benefits and results.

Juvederm: As one of the longest lasting dermal fillers on the market, Juvederm typically lasts patients a full year. Made of hyaluronic acid, a naturally produced chemical in our bodies, Juvederm is designed to plump up and enhance areas in which it is injected to. Used primarily to help smooth out lines and wrinkles around the mouth and nose, fill in lips in order to give you a sexier pout, and help with sculpting around the jawline, Juvederm is a very versatile filler.

Voluma: Now that you know which fillers are used to treat the upper and lower portions of the face, what about the mid section of the face? Voluma is an FDA approved filler that is used to smooth out and accentuate the mid portion of the face.
