Am I a Good Candidate for Dermal Fillers?
- Posted on: May 15 2019
Turning back time on appearance used to require surgery. During the original facelift era, the results of surgical treatment often left something to be desired. Now, we have much more opportunity to refresh the face without high risk and the potential for long-lasting ramifications. One of the popular methods of restoring a youthful vibe to the face is to inject products that plump lines and creases. We think it’s safe to say at this point that dermal fillers aren’t going away anytime soon. Does that mean this type of facial rejuvenation is right for you? We’ll move closer to a clear answer here.
Is Dermal Filler Treatment All About Anti-Aging?
Generally, one may perceive dermal filler treatment as one for the older person; the one who has laugh lines or frown lines or worry lines robbing them of their energetic vibe. Not so. At Always Beautiful Medspa, we treat adults of all ages with appropriate dermal filler products. Dermal fillers are commonly used to add volume to the lips and cheeks as well as the soften lines and wrinkles, so this is definitely not an age-related treatment.
Being a good candidate for dermal filler treatment doesn’t require a lot. The best results may be achieved on nonsmokers who are generally healthy. Fillers are designed to temporarily plump superficial tissue, so are a good option for people who are willing to repeat treatments as needed to maintain results. Many of the fillers used today can last up to two years. However, longevity can depend on lifestyle, genetics, sun habits, and the area treated.
The type of dermal filler can also factor in, which is why a professional assessment is conducted prior to treatment. People with thicker skin may achieve better results with a denser dermal filler.
Common concerns that can be corrected with dermal fillers include:
- Deep creases around the nose and mouth
- Flattening cheeks (which can deepen lines around the nose and mouth)
- Misshapen or thin lips
- Softening jawline
- Receding chin
- Minor imperfections on the nose
