How To Age Gracefully: Cosmetic Fillers To Sustain Facial Rejuvenation Results!

POSTED ON TUESDAY, JUNE 21, 2016 AT 2:31 PM  by Dr. Mokhtar Asaadi

For patients who have undergone a facial rejuvenation procedure in the past, it is important to maintain results in order to sustain a youthful-looking appearance. Regular touch-ups with cosmetic fillers can guard against fine lines, hollowing, or wrinkles caused by aging and sun exposure. These non-surgical injectables temporarily restore volume to different areas of the face, enhancing the results of a previous facial rejuvenation treatment for years to come, including a facelift, neck lift, eyelid surgery, brow lift, rhinoplasty, or facial implants.

How Do Cosmetic Fillers Work?

Cosmetic fillers are made from a naturally-occurring substance known as hyaluronic acid. These injectables are carefully injected into facial areas that have lost volume or definition to add fullness. Cosmetic fillers can smooth fine lines, improve the appearance of hollows, and reduce facial folds that form naturally over time. In addition to hyaluronic acid-based fillers, Botox® can be utilized to improve facial wrinkling; this substance is made from botulinum toxin and stops nerve impulses by relaxing facial muscles.

What Types Of Cosmetic Fillers Are Available?

There are a variety of cosmetic injectables available to treat specific facial conditions. Juvederm®, Restylane®, Voluma®, and Belotero® are all hyaluronic acid fillers that can achieve youthful-looking results. Botox® is another option to maintain natural-looking volume.

What Areas Can Cosmetic Fillers Treat?

Cosmetic fillers can treat the upper, mid, and lower facial regions. Fine lines and facial furrows around the brows and eyelids can be corrected, as can hollowing around the mid-face. Injectables can also reduce smile lines and wrinkles above the lips. Patients suffering from a loss of jawline definition can undergo treatment with dermal fillers to enhance contours, as well.

What Is Treatment Like?

Cosmetic injectables are a completely non-invasive treatment option, meaning there is no surgery involved. Fillers are carefully injected into the treatment area(s) in less than a half hour. There is no downtime associated and patients can resume daily activities upon completing their procedure.

How Many Treatments Do I Need?

After undergoing your cosmetic filler treatment, you can expect to see results in the following days. Results usually last 6 months to a year. Follow-up treatments are recommended to maintain your youthful-looking results.
