Part of the aging process involves losing volume in your face. One of the reasons why you lose volume is because you naturally lose fat as you get older. At first, the idea of losing fat sounds like a positive thing. And while it is not healthy to be obese, we are not talking about healthy weight loss. We’re talking about you losing fat in areas where you actually want fat to be. When your face is plump, it causes you to look youthful and healthy. When you start to lose facial volume, you start to get sunken cheeks, hollow temples, and wrinkles. The solution to this problem is not necessarily to gain weight. You do not have control over where you gain weight. One option that is available is to use dermal fillers to restore lost volume in your face. How does this work?
Think about a fully inflated balloon. The surface of the balloon is tight. As the balloon starts to lose air, the surface changes. It is not tight anymore. This is the same thing that happens to your face as you get older. In your younger years, it has fat and other beneficial substances, which leave your skin looking tight and smooth. As you lose that fat and the production of other substances decreases, you start to see signs of aging on your face. You may actually think that your face is starting to look like a balloon that has lost air. Dermal fillers can be used to restore that lost volume. So, in the same way that replacing the lost air in a balloon will make the surface tight again, so will using dermal fillers to replace lost volume in your face.
There are a lot of dermal filler options available. Some are designed to be used on certain areas of the face, like the cheeks or lips. You may begin to feel overwhelmed when you start looking at all of the options. However, don’t let this stop you from restoring your facial volume and getting back some of your youth. During a consultation with us, we will discuss all of your options with you.
One of the things that a lot of people like about using dermal fillers is that the results that they get are subtle. Other individuals will be able to tell that you look younger and more rested. However, since the results are so natural-looking and subtle, they will not be able to necessarily tell that you had anything done. For most people, this is a good thing. They want to look their best, but they do not want to answer a lot of questions from their coworkers or friends about having work done.
