The Benefits of Facial Fillers

Prior to the rise of dermal fillers over the last two decades, the facelift was the only mainstream, FDA-approved procedure available to get rid of wrinkles and rejuvenate the skin of the face. Now facial fillers are incredibly popular because they are minimally invasive (safer) and save time – with no need for downtime and relatively quick treatments.

Many dermatologists and cosmetic surgeons believe that dermal fillers are not just a fad but the wave of the future. Dr. Kevin Tehrani, for example, thinks that by 2033, the facelift will be performed rarely, if ever. Dermal fillers don’t always replace the facelift but do push it into the future: patients who are considering facelifts can usually postpone them for 10 years or more if they opt for consistent treatment with facial fillers.

Dermal fillers: why so popular & options

Many consumers, especially women, are turning toward dermal fillers both for personal and professional reasons. The compounds in facial fillers help to make the skin fuller and more pliant. In the past, essentially the opposite tactic was used: pulling the skin taut. The result of today’s approach is that evidence of aging is removed without making the face look unnatural, as was often the complaint with earlier methods.

Two of the most common facial fillers are Juvederm and Restylane. These brands are, by and large, incredibly similar. The active ingredient in each of them is hyaluronic acid. Hyaluronic acid occurs naturally in the body, especially throughout the connective tissues (fascia). Because the acid’s levels tend to reduce with age, replenishing the supply restores the skin’s youthful balance.

No more animals in facial fillers

The science of dermal fillers has come a long way since the early 90s. Most of the widespread options are not sourced from animals or animal products today. Back then, though, fat from the human body, silicone, and collagen from cows were all used standardly as facial fillers. Hyaluronic acid is preferable both because it’s easier to achieve the desired effects and because it already exists in the body: sensitivities to the compound are unlikely, and it works seamlessly with your body’s chemistry.

The more that medical aesthetic treatments achieve their ends naturally, the safer they are and the greater the long-term effects. Safety is also significantly enhanced by working with an established specialist in the field.
