Why Dermal Fillers are Attracting a Younger Crowd
Despite countless advancements made in cosmetics over the past two decades, there persists – for some – a false perception surrounding dermal fillers. We have all seen the effects of fillers gone wrong, including images of aging celebrities with overly inflated lips and puffy, apple-sized cheek bones. The result is alien, unsettling, and is brought about not by an inherent flaw in dermal fillers, but rather by the overuse of unstable and foreign substances.
It wasn’t long ago when dermal fillers were based on such materials as silicone and bovine collagen. These substances, which are entirely unfamiliar to the human body, are unsurprisingly riddled with complications and adverse effects, and have since largely been phased from mainstream use. In their place, a new ingredient has emerged that has transformed the cosmetic industry and completely changed the way many people view dermal fillers.
Introducing Hyaluronic Acid
– the base for such products as Restylane
– is a water retaining substance naturally occurring in the human body. As we age, natural levels of hyaluronic acid begin to diminish in our bodies. This results in dry, loose, wrinkle-prone skin. By introducing hyaluronic acid back into the makeup of aged skin, however, men and women can again experience the vigor and natural plumpness of their youth.
Another great benefit of hyaluronic acid is that its effects can be managed through precise application. Because of the wide range of results offered by products such as Restylane and Juvéderm, fillers have become terrific options for younger patients – primarily patients in their 20s and 30s who are just beginning to experience the onset of facial wrinkling.
Taking Early Precautions
As is the case with all matters of health, the most effective steps are those taken early. By including hyaluronic acid-based fillers into their cosmetic regimens, these younger patients can begin to make subtle alterations to the appearance of their skin, preventing early signs of aging and promoting the growth of natural substances such as collagen.
Though the effects of hyaluronic acid-based fillers speak for themselves, it is important to remember that those effects are dependent on the person administering treatment. A skilled professional can recognize the areas of concern to provide the right amount of filler to each targeted area.
This level of expertise and attention to detail will provide results that not only look natural, but also highlight the patient’s natural beauty without over-embellishing features. This is exceedingly crucial for patients in the 20s and early 30s. Applying filler is nothing shy of an art form, and an investment in the right professional will make all the difference in your results.
