Things to Keep in Mind When Getting Dermal Fillers

Each of us is beautiful in one way or the other. However, it’s one’s own perception of their beauty that leads them to cosmetic surgery.

Over the last couple of years, cosmetic surgery has seen a significant rise and has gained worldwide popularity. That’s not to say it wasn’t popular before, but the recent admissions of many celebrities have encouraged their fans to get cosmetic procedures too. When the teen idol, Kylie Jenner got lip fillers in 2015, there was a significant boom in young women opting for the procedure. The #KylieJennerChallenge saw young women using shot glasses to plump up their lips. Although it’s a dangerous alternative, women fell in love with the way the challenge made them look.

If you, too, are impressed by your favorite celebrity, or have always wanted that added spark to your appearance, stay away from shot glasses and opt for fillers.

But that’s not the only reason people opt for dermal fillers.

With age, your skin can show signs of wear and you might notice some changes that’ll bother you. Wrinkles and saggy skin might suddenly be your biggest enemy. Time can be cruel and many people believe that it can’t be turned back. Well, think again. You might not be able to revisit the past, but you sure can look the part.

With dermal fillers, you can turn back the clock and return to having a youthful look. They are a popular cosmetic procedure that can easily smooth out facial creases, improve wrinkles and add a new life to your appearance. Most people go through a thinning phase with growing age. Their lips and cheeks, which were once rosy and plump, eventually get thin and lose volume. Another aftermath of aging!

If you are concerned about thinning lips, cheek and temple hollows, and deepened smile lines, dermal fillers are worth considering. With millions of people opting for cosmetic surgeries in the past two years, there are a lot of questions to be answered. Before you take the big step and go for the cosmetic procedure, there are a few things you need to keep in mind. To help ease the emotional and physical journey for you, we’ve come up with a list of 5 factors. Take a look!

Most Fillers use Hyaluronic Acid

Don’t let the acid part scare you away. The substance is already found in the body naturally. Hyaluronic Acid restores the lost skin moisture even when applied topically.  Dermal fillers have an excellent safety track record and are low risk procedures when done by trained professionals like those on ZendyHealth.

Neurotoxins like Botox and Dysport minimize muscle motion to give a wrinkle-free appearance. Fillers, on the other hand, add volume by filling the wrinkles and deep creases such.

Results Evident from the First Treatment

There are plenty of treatments that guarantee results but require a waiting period of months before seeing results. With dermal fillers, you can experience remarkable results within minutes of your treatment.  Really, you can potentially look 10-15 years younger with one session -- easiest way to look younger in the quickest amount of time if you think about it.

There have been research which suggests that dermal fillers have the ability to stimulate natural collagen production in the body -- which means that even when the fillers dissolve, there is a lasting effect due to the de novo collagen production.

Taken as a Preventive Measure?

Many have pursued cosmetic treatments at a younger age with the intent to ‘prevent’ or delay the inevitable aging process. Common such treatments include nonsurgical, minimally invasive treatments such as Botox, chemical peels, microneedling, microdermabrasion, and laser resurfacing. Dermal fillers also fit as a procedure that helps build collagen where collagen has been lost so technically, one can consider filler treatments as preventive and forestalling the aging process.

Good Fillers Don’t Stand Out

You might be expecting a drastic change overnight and even though fillers are capable of such a transformation, a “good” treatment with fillers is one that is not noticeable to others because the results appear natural. You wouldn’t want people to notice and remark about a drastic change in your appearance – that might be too artificial. The best providers and best treatments typically yield a subtle and look natural but rejuvenated look.

Know when to say No

No matter how much you’d love to have that flawless skin, there are times when you have to stop and reflect on your decisions. Mothers who breastfeed or women who are pregnant are better off without the treatment, for the time being. There have been no research studies to evaluate the safety of fillers on women who are pregnant or who are breastfeeding. To ensure that neither you nor your baby has to endure any adverse effect, it’s better to hold off for a while.

The same precaution is advised for people who are battling a sinus infection. If you have any upcoming dental treatments such as teeth cleaning or extraction, it’s recommended that you wait a while and get the fillers afterwards given the increased risk of infection.

At ZendyHealth, you can avail standard dermal fillers, as well as long-lasting ones – at the best prices from high quality providers. Voluma and Sculptra® are included in the long-lasting category. They have been reported to last 18-24 months, and even longer in some people.
