3 Reasons To Try Dermal Fillers

Posted on: 27 March 2018

Dermal fillers have become popular with both celebrities and the non-famous alike for their ability to quickly plump up the skin and lips, restoring the look of youthfulness. Dermal fillers are an effective way to look younger or get the pouty lips of your dreams without the need for major cosmetic surgery. Here are a few of the major reasons to consider dermal fillers.

Dermal Fillers Are Quick and Non-Invasive

Dermal fillers are less of a time commitment than most other cosmetic treatments. In fact, the actual administering of your fillers will only take minutes, though you will be at your appointment a bit longer to fill out paperwork and have a conversation about the results you're hoping for with your doctor. You may experience slight swelling for a day after your dermal fillers, but in most cases, this is very subtle and you will be able to resume normal life activities and even return to work right after your appointment.

With dermal fillers, you get results that last for months with a very minimal time commitment, little downtime, and no need for an invasive or painful surgery.

Dermal Fillers Are Flexible

Dermal fillers can be injected in a variety of locations and at various strengths to get you the exact results you're interested in. If you simply wish your lips were more full, your fillers can be concentrated on your lip area. If you'd like a subtle plumping and smoothing out of wrinkles on your forehead or cheeks, that is easy to achieve with fillers. Some people opt for more dramatic results, which can also be achieved, sometimes alone and sometimes in conjunction with a complementary treatment like Botox.

Dermal Fillers Are Temporary

Dermal fillers dissolve over time, usually over the course of several months. This allows you to try out dermal fillers without making a permanent commitment. It also means that you can approach your fillers conservatively, starting out with a small amount to see how you like it. After a few months, if you decide you would like slightly more plumping, your next filler appointment can accommodate this new preference.

If you are still on the fence about dermal fillers, it's best to start with a consultation. Your dermatologist or aesthetician will evaluate your skin health and signs of aging and give you their recommendations for a plan that includes dermal fillers, possibly along with other non-invasive treatment options like chemical peels.
