How Dermal Fillers Make You Look Younger


Are trying to look younger without doing anything too drastic like facial augmentation or surgery? If that’s you, then dermal fillers may help you achieve a younger, more attractive appearance without the risks that come with surgery. Dermal fillers are safe, and they come in different types, giving you more options to achieve the type of look you want. In some cases, they are completely reversible and will give you a full-fledged 10-year rewind.

Here’s how dermal fillers can make you look younger:

  1. Reduce wrinkles and lines

Aging causes a gradual decrease in volume and fat on the face, and this, in turn, causes lines and wrinkles to appear. Certain lifestyle habits like smoking or sun exposure can make the skin look worse as you age – but the good news is you can make the lines disappear by using dermal fillers like Juverderm or Vollure, which add softness to your face and restore youthful plumpness.

Dermal fillers can also be used alongside other recognized skin treatments like Botox, microneedling, or chemical peels.  The end result is soft, smooth skin without the wrinkles and fine lines that come about when volume is reduced.

  1. Add volume to cheeks and chin

As we grow older we lose a large amount of the fat around the mouth and eyes, and on top of this reduction, the remaining fat tends to shift downward. This is what leads to loose, sagging skin in the area around the jawline and on the sides of the eyes. Much of this fat goes to the neck and chin, causing a double chin, general bagginess, and other unpleasant results.

So how do you stop this from happening? Dermal fillers fill those shallow contours on your face that don’t have the plumpness of youth. During treatment, the doctor will inject the fillers in areas of your face that need restoration and if you want a more pronounced chin to minimize the appearance of sagging, you can get it with some types of fillers.

  1. Make thin lips appear fuller

Full lips are not always a by-product of good genes. Dermal fillers can give you great lips and make you look younger by giving you a youthful appearance and sensual volume to a part of your face that everyone notices. Remember this treatment is safe, in some cases reversible; and your doctor will work with you to create the look you want.

Should I get dermal fillers?

Unless your doctor says otherwise, you can use dermal fillers to reduce lines and wrinkles on your face without any major risk; however, you need to know what to expect. While the procedure is considered low-risk, it can change your appearance in a drastic way. Note down these points as you go for treatment:

  1. a) Your appearance will change. A lot of times people want to use fillers and still maintain a perfectly natural look. While it’s important to look yourself, the whole point of fillers is to change how you look by altering the shape of your face – so you’re bound to come out different. In small amounts, fillers can be used to make subtle changes, but in the end it’s about creating the kind of change that makes you look better.
  2. b) Once it’s in, you may not be able to remove it. There are some types of fillers like Artefill or Sculptra that once they’re injected into your skin, they can’t be taken out; at least until they wear off. So if you hate your new look, it may be a while before your features look normal.
  3. c) There are always risks with any cosmetic procedure. Because you are injecting a substance into your skin, there is a small risk of a reaction. Most of these procedures go smoothly with no serious reaction to the fillers, but its worth noting the potential risks.    

The best way to decide whether dermal fillers is a good treatment for your skin is to book a consultation with skin specialist so you can discuss the different filler types and the look you want to achieve.
