You may not see it, but your skin cells are…
Anti-aging products and techniques have grown significantly in the past few years. There are more options in this part of the skin care industry than ever before. Because let’s face it, none of us want to get older let alone LOOK older. On this quest to stay looking younger (at the very least), if you’re like many other people in the world you’ve thought about fillers. There are now so many different types of fillers that work to mask deep wrinkles it can be a little overwhelming. You may be wondering how they work? If you are, we’ve got you covered on this one so keep reading!
As we age wrinkles can appear, and typically they appear in what seems like the most inconvenient, frustrating places. Our skin is made of collagen, which is what gives our skin a youthful appearance and more elasticity. However, as we age we lose natural collagen in our skin, which is when wrinkles and signs of aging start to creep up. The way fillers work to mask deep wrinkles is they’re injected in specific areas (where wrinkles, lines, or even scars reside) to actually replace the natural collagen. Fillers are typically made with different types of collagen, and come from different sources to create them. Basically, since your skin has lost its natural collagen in certain areas the fillers are injected in those areas to supplement what was lost. The result (when done correctly, but an expert), leaves you with a youthful appearance and the wrinkles or lines are filled in.
There are now quite a few different brands and formulas of collagen injections. Deciding on the right brand or type for you is something to consult your trusted professional with. Just like with any type of plastic surgery or injection, in general there are risks involved so going to someone who is extremely experienced and knowledgeable is going to help to ensure you see the results you’re looking for in fillers. The good news is with so many different filler options nowadays, you’re sure to be able to find something that works for you and helps to mask deep wrinkles in a way that’s safe for your body and will give you the youthful glow you’re hoping to achieve.
The most important thing is to do your research with you who choose to use for this type of procedure. Asking for referrals and finding out as much about the expert as possible is going to be a major step in this process. Unfortunately, there are a lot of ‘experts’ that don’t necessarily have the patient’s best interest at heart. Focus less on finding the best deal and more on who is going to make sure you’re healthy and a priority in the process.
It’s amazing to see how far fillers have come in recent years, and it’s likely to just continue. Have you ever considered getting fillers to mask deep wrinkles? Or have you gotten fillers in the past?
