Most of you notice that your look changes gradually as you age. Do not be alarmed. It is a natural aging process. As we age, our faces naturally lose fat and collagen. They start to loose and sag. Smile lines and crow’s feet become more apparent.
Dermal fillers are materials injected into the areas of the skin to reverse these skin changes, therefore reverse the effects of age on the face. You do not have to undergo a surgery to achieve a younger look.
What are they used for?
Dermal fillers are used to soften facial creases and wrinkles, and to enhance shallow contours.
As you age, your laugh lines around the mouth become deeper. This can be easily corrected with dermal fillers.
Your eye sockets become more hollow as you age. Having a prolonged duration of dark circles and eye bag contribute to a fine line showing underneath your eyes. All these can be corrected with dermal fillers.
Age, smoking, and other environmental factors can make your lips thinner. Fillers can be used to replace the volume and to shape your lips.
Studies have shown that we are drawn to someone’s eyes and nose first. Fillers can help you achieve a higher nose bridge. Most Asians have a flat nose bridge. By enhancing the nose bridge with dermal fillers, your entire upper face becomes more attractive.
Most Asians do not have prominent chins. And as we age, chin bones tend to retract. Fillers can be used to augment the chin to restore chin projection and make one appear slimmer.
Pain is minimal. A numbing cream is applied on your face before treatment. With skilled and experienced technique, you can sit back and relax while your doctor does the work. You just need to wait and see the wonderful end results.
Side effects are minimal and are usually quickly reversible.
You may experience mild redness, swelling or itching right after the treatment. They usually go away after 1-2 days.
There may be small injection “wounds” right after treatment, but will disappear very quickly.
Sometimes, mild bleeding can occur at injection sites but it is easily stopped with a firm pressure on the bleeding site for a few minutes.
You will be instructed to not manipulate the treated areas because the injected products may shift with aggressive manipulation.
Rarely, allergic type of reactions can occur. Therefore, it is extremely important to inform the doctor if you are known to have any sort of abnormal reactions to hyaluronic acid or previous filler treatment.
Anything else I should know before filler treatment?
As mentioned, you cannot have fillers done if you are allergic to hyaluronic acid, or have had any adverse reactions to previous filler treatment. It can be dangerous to you.
You should avoid dermal fillers if you are pregnant or breastfeeding.
Inform your doctor if you are on any form of medications especially blood thinning medicine.
Inform your doctor of your underlying medical conditions especially conditions such as SLE and rheumatoid arthritis.
If you have had cold sores at the treated area, filler injections may cause them to break out again. Also, if you have acne at the treated area, you may want to get your acne treated before having dermal fillers done.
