Just keep in mind that Miss Filler’s friendship costs about $600 a meeting, but what a blissful friendship it will be!
What is filler exactly?
Wrinkle fillers can be naturally-derived or synthetic substance that is directly injected into skin to plump the area and lift depressions, lines and folds. Sounds like every woman’s dream, right? Well first you need to choose which type is best for you.
The most common type of wrinkle filler is hyaluronic acid, which has a much smaller risk of causing an allergic reaction. Synthetic fillers, on the other hand, last much longer than the naturally-derived varieties, but have a higher chance of side effects.
What’s the process?
Your doctor will first consult with you about your aesthetic goals and how to achieve a younger look. Use this time to address your personal concerns about aging and which areas bother you most. Your doctor will make the necessary recommendations to solve your problem areas.
When you’re ready for the brief and easy procedure, your doctor will clean the injection sites with alcohol and mark them with a crayon. They will slowly inject the filler into targeted areas of the face, allowing it to raise your wrinkles and folds immediately. Usually, you will also get to hold a mirror so you can see the improvements and discuss adjustments during the process.
When finished, you’ll see the results right away. You’ll leave with an ice pack to soothe the injected area. Be prepared for possible swelling or bruising, but these side effects will only last about a week depending on your level of sensitivity.
Where do you get them?
There are many areas where women can get wrinkle filler to reduce signs of aging on the face. No wonder they are every woman’s best friend. A popular area is the nasolabial folds, the lines that come from under the nostrils and under the cheeks. Another common spot are the marionette lines that spread downward from the corners of the mouth. In minutes, you can fill these depression areas to restore your face’s former plump surface.
Other areas include the apples of the cheeks and the lips to add more volume, further enhancing the appearance of youth. Ultimately, your friendship with Miss Filler will certainly be one the reaps rewards!
How long does it last?
How long the results last can vary from several months to over a year or two. Some research suggests that repeated injections can even help stimulate the body’s ability to produce more natural collagen. That will help reduce the number of lines and wrinkles. There’s also some evidence that finds less filler is required over time to achieve the same result.
And the best benefit of all is that you don’t need to tell anyone about your newfound friend, Miss Filler. As long as you go to an experienced injector, who can give you natural results, you’ll look ravishing (thanks to your new pal).
