As people age, facial features that were once full and lifted can begin to sag. For so long people have turned to surgical procedures, like the famous facelift, to combat this common side effect of getting older. These procedures are often daunting and can come with grueling recovery periods, but for so long they were the only option. Luckily, modern innovation has now provided an alternative: anti-aging skin fillers. Unlike traditional facelifts, anti-aging dermal fillers don't even require general anesthesia, and they are incredibly effective.
They work by adding volume to, or filling out, the space underneath aging skin. Sagging skin during the aging process is often a result of a loss of facial fat, and the effects can manifest in a sunken appearance in the face. By filling in these sunken areas, dermal fillers replace lost facial fat and will restore the youthful fullness of your face. Furthermore, the results often look more natural than the traditional facelift. Many factors contribute to these desirable results. One key difference that often makes dermal fillers more effective is the detail-oriented nature of the procedure. Surgical facelifts, much like the name suggests, work by physically lifting up and getting rid of excess skin caused by sagging. This is effective in creating an overall effect of tightened, younger-looking skin. Anti-aging skin fillers, on the other hand, target specific areas on the face with many individuals, localized, injections. This leads to a treatment that is personalized to you and can accommodate the nature of faces, which are never fully symmetrical and uniform. The use of dermal fillers allows for your doctor to bring out your natural features, while still reversing the hand of time and restoring your youthful appearance. The non-invasive nature of anti-aging skin fillers also means that there isn't the same risk of scarring that comes with getting a surgical facelift.
Anti-aging dermal fillers provide options for people who do not want to endure the risks associated with invasive surgical procedures, and for many people, the treatment is as, if not more, effective than surgery. While a surgical facelift means prepping for general anesthesia and dealing with a long recovery process before you can experience the results of your treatment, dermal fillers are quick and safe. You can treat yourself to youthful skin, and not have to worry about any serious complications. It's the best of both worlds when it comes to dealing with the side effects of getting older.
