How dermal fillers can help

Did you take a look in the mirror one day and noticed a few lines getting deeper, cheeks that are losing volume, and skin that now sags a bit more? This is what aging does. It happens subtly yet gradually until it becomes very noticeable that you see these changes at once! But don’t worry, fillers can help you with your aging skin woes! No one can turn back time, but with the help of fillers, it can look like you did!

A youthful face has markers with what is also known as the “triangle of beauty” or “triangle of youth”—a pointed chin, defined angles and contours, and taut and firm cheeks that form an inverted triangle. When you notice signs of aging, there is a loss of elasticity, loss of volume, sagging skin, hollow cheeks, thinner lips, and deeper wrinkles that resemble the opposite of a youthful triangle with the flat base at the bottom.

The loss of volume is what makes sagging skin more pronounced and lines deeper and more visible. This is where injectable dermal fillers can help. It is a quick procedure with results that can last for months. These fillers have a thick consistency similar to gel that can temporarily add volume to the cheeks, jaw, lips, and other hollow or sagging areas. As it adds volume, it also helps reduce the appearance of lines and wrinkles. There are different types of dermal fillers such as Hyaluronic Acid (HA), Calcium Hydroxylapatite (CaHa), Polylactic acid, and Polymethyl-methacrylate microspheres, with the first two being more known. HA and CaHa are both that can be found in the body. HA fillers are easily absorbable but CaHa fillers are thicker in consistency and may be suited in areas of the face that need more structure. CaHa also lasts a bit longer and also encourages collagen production. Examples of HA fillers are Belotero and Restylane while CaHa has Radiesse. Treatment will always depend on the patient’s needs, or where the volume loss is more pronounced. At times, a combination of treatments may be performed as well. The aim is to help restore the “triangle of beauty” by filling out these areas. An experienced and trained doctor or practitioner should be able to lift, smoothen, and fill out areas with results that look natural and more youthful. This is why when it comes to any type of facial treatment or procedure, always choose a reputable clinic and a certified and trained doctor that can help you with treatments that will suit your needs. 

We have learned how fillers can certainly help in aging skin, but there are also other ways to restore the triangle of beauty such as lasers, Botox, or surgical solutions. Regardless of which treatment you prefer, the key to aging slowly is to combine them with a healthy lifestyle that includes eating well, being active, knowing how to manage stress, and having a restful sleep every night. Remember, aging is inevitable, but aging well is always up to you!
