Many people confuse dermal fillers with injectables such as Botox. These fillers are very different, however, in that a filler is injected into your face which adds fullness and plumpness. This differs from Botox, a product that freezes muscles to reduce wrinkles. According to the National Institutes of Health, 75% of individuals who use dermal fillers are highly satisfied with their outcomes. Here are a few of the key signs that fillers may be right for you.
You Want to Add Volume to Your Face and Smooth Out Wrinkles
One of the signs that dermal fillers may be ideal for you is that you’re looking to add volume or fullness to your face and rid your skin of wrinkles. If you don’t want to add any volume, plumpness, or fullness to your face, such as in your cheek area or around your eyes, these types of fillers are not the best option for you.
You Want a Natural Look
Another sign that dermal fillers may be a great choice for you is that you want a natural look. Some products can make your face look stiff or plastic-like. If you want to avoid looking like you’ve had work done and want results that look natural, these types of fillers may be perfect for you.
You Don’t Mind Having Fillers Reapplied Every Six to 12 Months
Prior to having any type of filler injected, you need to find out how long it lasts. Dermal fillers are not permanent. They typically last about six to 12 months. This means the results are not permanent and you need to have the filler re-injected at least once a year to maintain your appearance.
You’re Not Pregnant, Breastfeeding, or Preparing to Undergo a Dental Procedure
Lastly, fillers are not ideal for individuals who are pregnant or breastfeeding. Because the fillers add fullness, and thus tighten your skin, treatments around the mouth area should also be avoided if you plan on undergoing any major dental procedures in the near future.
Dermal fillers are a great option for those who want to add a little fullness to their face, helping to reduce wrinkles. This helps to create a more natural look. If you’re looking to alter your face, these types of fillers may be ideal for you.
