The face of cosmetic surgery is changing, with non-invasive procedures like dermal fillers, botox, and lip enhancements exploding in popularity. In fact, according to data from the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, the use of fillers soared from 1.8 million procedures in 2010 to 2.6 million in 2016 alone. Certified Cosmetic Injectors are now able to offer a range of preventative treatments to not only help you prevent anti-aging but also turn back the hands of time. Keep reading to find out why dermal fillers are a great addition to your anti-aging regimen.
It’s not exactly a secret that our skin loses elasticity as we age, and you may have found yourself trying to desperately hide these signs of aging. Dermal fillers can increase your confidence by achieving the aesthetic goals you’re looking for, giving you increased confidence in your appearance.
La Belle Medical Spa tells us more about the skin changes that accompany aging:
“As you age, it’s normal for your skin to lose moisture, volume, and elasticity. The middle layers hold collagen and elastin, substances that support those three parts of the aging equation. Collagen supports moisture retention and volume, while elastin contributes to your skin’s ability to bounce back.”
Did you know that receiving dermal fillers can help boost your own natural production of collagen? Not only do dermal fillers achieve a natural look by plumping up existing wrinkles, but they also leave you with softer, healthy, younger-looking skin.
Hamilton Aesthetics explains how dermal fillers help boost your own natural collagen:
“A major reason that your skin ages as you get older is that collagen production declines. This is accelerated if someone has a lot of sun damage. Collagen is one of your skin's essential building blocks. When collagen ends up breaking down, the signs of aging is more apparent. This includes having coarse skin texture and wrinkles. Dermal fillers, however, can help your body stimulate more of its own collagen, just as a younger individual's skin does. This translates to the younger, healthier-looking skin you're after -- in a natural way.”
Dermal fillers are a fast-acting, minimal risk solution to plumping up and filling out wrinkles. But did you know that they can be used to target more than those fine lines that you just can’t stop staring at?
Yaletown Laser Centre tells us how dermal fillers can be used to target more than just wrinkles:
“While dermal fillers are used for getting rid of fine lines and wrinkles, they also have other uses, including augmenting your lips, cheeks, chin, and even your nose, helping your face achieve more symmetry and leaving you with a fresh and more youthful look.”
