When you laugh, frown, or squint your facial muscles contract and your skin creases. As you get older, your skin loses its elasticity and those creases deepen into lines that can become permanently etched on your face. These lines make you look older than you are and make you look angry or worried even when you’re not. By temporarily immobilizing the muscles you use to frown and squint, fillers can smooth out those lines and relax those muscles, restoring a more youthful, less stressed expression to your face.
The procedure only takes a few minutes and the treatment requires no downtime and you will see the amazing results in a few days. The full effect may take up to two weeks but your new youthful look will last for several months.
Filler gels are made of hyaluronic acid. Hyaluronic acid is a natural substance in your skin that assists in adding hydration and volume. It is placed into the subsurface of the skin to temporarily smooth wrinkles and fine lines. It replenishes the volume in the skin almost instantly.
A filler is designed to correct moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds and provides versatility in restoring the contours of your face to a smooth and natural look. It is also used to fill in lip lines and define the lip shape.
The filler process takes about 15 minutes and you see immediate results. The downtime is minimal and you can get back to your normal routine right away. Fillers are also long lasting so you can keep your improved appearance for up to six to twelve months.
