How Injectable Fillers Make You Look Younger

The aging process inevitably leads to fine lines and wrinkles. Without the assistance of cosmetic treatments, these lines can deepen and make you look older. Facial aging can happen at any age as certain habits and lifestyle factors can speed up the aging process. A great option to address facial aging is injectable fillers. So, let’s look at how injectable fillers make you look younger and even increase your self-confidence due to the subtle and effective changes they can make on your face. 

Types of Injectable Fillers   

There are two main types of injectable fillers used to help with facial aging. Botox is the most well-known injectable filler that is known to relax your wrinkles. Botox is known for being used to address crow’s feet, forehead wrinkles, and address the “11” lines in between your eyebrows. Dermal fillers are known for filling and plumping hollowed areas on your face. Below you will find the benefits of both Botox and dermal fillers. 

  • Botox: This is more of a wrinkle relaxer and is used to temporarily paralyze the muscles that cause certain fine lines and wrinkles on your face. Not only can Botox reduce the look of your current fine lines and wrinkles, but it can also stop them from deepening if you get regular treatments. Botox can be used in conjunction with fillers depending on your desired aesthetic. 
  • Fillers: Injectable fillers are also referred to as dermal fillers and can really help you achieve a youthful glow. You can use them to plump your lips, lift your eyebrows, improve the look of your cheekbones, remove darkened undereye circles, and smooth out your smile lines. Just like the name, dermal fillers literally “fill” the areas you want to enhance or smooth out.

How Injectable Fillers Make You Look Younger

Whether you decide to get dermal fillers, Botox, or both, you will notice that each treatment can make you look younger. The appearance of fine lines and wrinkles can add years to your face. By using injectable fillers, you can smooth out any problematic areas. In addition to fine lines and wrinkles, fillers can lift certain areas of your face that may appear droopy. Women often experience droopy cheeks and upper eyelids due to the effects of natural aging. Fillers can lift these areas and freshen up your look. Talking with a board-certified surgeon about your aesthetic goals is important as they can provide you with their expert advice on how to address your problem areas. 

Treating Your Imperfections

Botox and dermal fillers are a great start to getting back to feeling like your youthful self again. Dermal fillers are injected and you are out of the office in less than an hour. You’ll need zero downtime and can literally get treated on your lunch break. Dermal fillers are temporary so plan on getting treated roughly every six months. 

Botox is also fast and can be done in ten minutes. Just like dermal fillers, you are in and out in no time and there’s no downtime. Botox Newport Beach is also something you’ll need to plan on getting regularly. One treatment can last between three to four months but talk with your cosmetic surgeon to see what’s right for you.
