Aging is one of those things that intellectually all of us realize is going to happen. However, it is also one of those things that emotionally we feel will never happen to us and only happens to other people. One of the reasons why we feel that way is because the aging process happens to us in a gradual way. As we look at ourselves in the mirror, we cannot see the almost imperceptible changes that are taking place in our face every single day. It is not until we look at our face and we compare it with a photograph that was taken of us some years ago that we truly understand how much of the aging process has affected us.
In addition to fine lines and wrinkles, one of the key indicators of aging is the fact that our faces lose subcutaneous fat. When this happens, the facial muscles become closer to the surface of the skin. As a result, wrinkles and fine lines become more apparent. Additionally, as a person ages, their facial skin becomes thinner and starts to stretch.
Many people are interested in learning how to restore lost volume to their face. Dermal fillers have been the solution for hundreds of thousands of people. These individuals have successfully used dermal fillers to increase the size of their lips, remove hollowed contours on their face, give their face a softer feel with less wrinkles and creases, as well as address scars on their face. Dermal fillers are a very powerful tool that can pinpoint and attack the signs of early aging.
You may be asking yourself if you are a good candidate for dermal fillers. The answer will depend on multiple factors. If you are healthy, do not have skin conditions in the areas being treated and do not have conditions that cause excessive bleeding, excessive bruising or excessive scarring, you may be a good candidate for this procedure.
Additionally, non-smokers have better results than smokers. To be a good candidate for dermal fillers, you must have a positive yet realistic view of what dermal fillers can do for you and your appearance.
Dermal fillers can usually be administered in the course of an hour. There is no downtime with dermal fillers. After getting treatment, you are able to return to your normal activities immediately. You will notice the results as soon as the procedure has been completed.
