As you age, your body produces less hyaluronic acid, collagen, and elastin. These substances are the building blocks of your skin’s structural support and foundation. When production decreases, volume loss occurs, and lines and wrinkles form. At the Aesthetic Clinique in Santa Rosa Beach, FL, we offer different dermal fillers, which provide a solution for aging and restore volume to the skin so that you can look as young as you feel.
Are Dermal Fillers Right for Me?
Dermal fillers are more than just forms of anti-aging medicine. They can improve your appearance, enhance your features, and give you a new sense of confidence. If you’ve been considering adding a filler to your anti-aging routine or using one to improve your appearance, we have plenty of options that can accomplish all of your aesthetic goals.
If you’re not sure whether fillers are right for you, we can help you confirm if you are ready to add one of these cosmetic injectables to your beauty routine and determine if you are a good candidate for treatment.
You Want a Quick Solution for Aging Skin
There are many different anti-aging treatments that can help reduce the signs of aging, but many of them require patience on your part. It may take a few treatments to see visible results. If you want a quick solution to lines, wrinkles, and volume loss, you’ll find exactly that in a dermal filler. As soon as we administer one of these products into your problem areas, you’ll see an immediate improvement in your area of concern.
Patients love the fact that all dermal fillers, both the hyaluronic acid-based and collagen-stimulating fillers, deliver immediate results. One of the benefits of fillers is that while they do deliver immediate results, those results continue to improve as the ingredients blend with your skin’s structure to help lift, plump, and smooth the entire area.
You Want To Enhance Your Features
Some younger patients don’t necessarily need to treat volume loss or aging in the lower half of their face quite yet, but that doesn’t exclude them from dermal fillers. Different fillers allow patients to enhance their features and achieve the facial proportions that they weren’t necessarily born with.
They can also augment and add volume to one or both of the lips, correct aesthetic imperfections on the face and body, and even create new contours that improve your overall appearance.
You Have Lines and Wrinkles on the Lower Half of Your Face
Neuromodulators like Botox are designed to treat expression lines by addressing the source of those lines at a muscular level. On the other hand, fillers are designed to treat the lower half of the face as it experiences volume loss. Less volume in the skin results in facial folds, wrinkles, and hollow areas that are anything but youthful.
Using the right filler to fill hollow areas in the face can smooth those lines and wrinkles and give you long-lasting results. If aging has resulted in the type of volume loss that has made your face appear gaunt, hollow, or thin, we can choose a dermal filler to restore that volume and help you achieve a youthful glow.
You Have Experienced Volume Loss
Some people experience volume loss that leads to hollow areas on the face. Hollow areas don’t always result in lines and wrinkles, but they can create dark circles beneath the eyes or cause the temples and cheeks to take on a sunken appearance. We can use fillers to restore volume to these hollow areas.
After treating the under-eye area, you can achieve that rested look that will give you a youthful glow, even first thing in the morning. We can add volume to the temples and the cheeks to help fill your face and help you feel more like your younger self again.
You Want To Look Natural
Many patients want to add fillers to their routine, but they are worried about looking unnatural. If you want to look natural and appreciate a conservative approach to anti-aging injectables, you are most likely a perfect candidate for fillers. Fillers should not make you look like a different person. The goal of a dermal filler is to reduce the signs of aging, restore youth, and enhance your natural features.
Their job is to correct and enhance, not completely transform, your appearance. When you choose our office for your anti-aging or facial enhancement needs, you can rest assured that you will be treated by an expert injector who will take every measure to make the necessary enhancements and corrections without compromising your appearance.
You’re Committed to the Treatment Process
The right candidate for this treatment should be committed to the treatment process. Fillers provide a long-lasting solution to aging, but the results will not last forever. Eventually, your body will metabolize the product ingredients. To maintain your results, you will need to schedule a follow-up treatment. This may be a year or longer after your initial injection, but you must be committed to follow-up treatments to maintain consistent results.
You’re Committed to Following the Aftercare Instructions
Additionally, the best candidates for this treatment are those who are committed to following the aftercare directives. While there is no downtime associated with a dermal filler appointment, you will be instructed to avoid certain activities and take special precautions for the first few days post-treatment to ensure that you achieve the best results.
Not following these directives could adversely affect your results and keep you from looking your best. Once your treatment is complete, our injector will provide you with detailed instructions on how to care for your injection sites so that you can achieve the best results.
You Need a Solution for Acne Scars
Some patients choose to use fillers not to treat aging but instead to fill acne scars. Acne scars can affect your appearance, even if you have just a few. They are very difficult to treat with products. Products rarely make a difference in helping fill acne scars, but fillers can. The right filler can provide you with immediate relief from your acne scars so that you can enjoy a smooth, uniform skin texture.
You Want To Increase Collagen
Some patients are hesitant about beginning an anti-aging routine with fillers until they learn more about collagen-stimulating fillers. Those who want to address the root cause of aging and increase collagen production in their problem areas can benefit from collagen-stimulating fillers. If you want to help your body create more collagen, you may be a good candidate for a collagen-stimulating filler.
These fillers deliver some immediate results thanks to the plumping ingredients in the product, but after a few weeks, your body will metabolize those ingredients, and you’ll see a gradual improvement in the appearance of your lines and wrinkles. These results will be completely natural as your body creates more collagen in the area.
You’re Not Allergic to the Filler Ingredients
Some patients do not qualify for treatment with a dermal filler because they are allergic to one or more of the ingredients in the formulation. Many patients make good candidates for fillers, but those who are allergic to lidocaine or any other ingredient will be ineligible for treatment.
We will review your problem areas during an initial consultation and then recommend which filler will help you best treat that area. Then, we will confirm you aren’t allergic to the ingredients in that injectable. If you are, we can evaluate different options to help meet your anti-aging or facial enhancement needs.
You’re Open to Recommendations
Good candidates for dermal fillers are open to recommendations. Some patients walk into our office with their heart set on a certain filler, but after listening to our expert injector make recommendations after evaluating their facial structure, they choose a different filler to meet their needs.
It’s important that you walk into your consultation with an open mind. Our injector is an expert and can see things that you may not—knowing that ahead of time can help you achieve the kind of results that completely exceed your expectations.
