Look better and younger during your lunch time! You have heard about fillers, but may not know how much they can do. Considered a lunch time fix, they provide immediate, lasting results and should be considered a mainstay of anyone’s long term beauty plan. At Capital City Cosmetic Surgery & Skin Health Center, we use Juvederm and Restylane fillers to help you look your best.
Fillers are different from Botox. Restylane and Juvederm are both made of hyaluronic acid, a substance that occurs naturally in the human body. Here are six amazing facial filler procedures that can make you look younger.
A quick fifteen minutes and you can have voluptuous, youthful lips. Aging thins the lips and vertical lines (bar codes) can develop. Fillers plump the lips, restoring their natural youthfulness and can eradicate those fine lines.
Lip enhancement can also help shape and improve the appearance of your lips, no matter your age. Kylie Jenner’s transformation is an excellent example. Beautiful lips can be sculpted with fillers to improve shape and definition.
Remove Your Parenthesis
Parenthesis, or nasolabial folds, are the deep creases that run from the nose to either side of the mouth. These creases become more noticeable as you age. Dermal filler injected into the folds restores the lost volume and softens the appearance of these creases.
Augment Your Cheeks
Cheek augmentation is extrememly popular right now. A dermal filler can make the cheeks look fuller and younger. Over the past several years, attention has been turned to this sign of aging which until now had been missed. Until the advent of dermal fillers, surgical implants were needed to augment the cheeks. Although implants are fantastic, if you aren’t ready for surgery, fillers are an excellent way to correct this area of deflation.
Erase Eye Hollows
One of the first, subtle signs of aging is the ability to discern the cheek and lower lid junction. This gradual hollowing tips people off to the fact that you are no longer in your twenties or thirties. This of volume under the eyes creates shadows, making you look old and tired. The use of fillers to obliterate this transition restores youth to the midface. However, some people will have a better result from surgery, depending on your situation. Be sure to see one of our expert staff who wil help determine whether a filler or surgery is right for you. I personally see a lot of patients from other practices who have been overfilled to avoid surgery. Although this is fixable, it’s simply better to get the right procedure the first time.
Erase Sleep Wrinkles
Facial wrinkles are a result of two instances: expressions such as frowning and putting your face on a pillow every night. You may be surprised that the simple act of sleeping can cause fine lines to develop. Skin distortion occurs over time as your face is pressed against your pillow. This eventually leads to wrinkles that deepen over time through nightly repetition. A facial filler can be injected into the areas where sleep wrinkles appear, leaving your skin looking fuller and smoother.
Improve Acne and Chicken Pox Scars
Injections of facial fillers are a great way to treat, and possibly even get rid of, various types of acne scars. Dermal fillers are most effective on rolling scars and less defined box scars, as well as the depressions caused by chicken pox. In these instances, the dermal filler helps fill in the depression to hide the scar.
