It’s ironic that with age, fat accumulates where you don’t want it, yet disappears from the places you’d like to keep it … like your face and lips. Gravity exerts its pull at the corners of the mouth, your cheeks and other parts of your body. Living a joyful life filled with sun, wind, and laughter takes a toll on your skin producing unwanted feathery lines, abnormal pigmentations and leathery skin. Sometimes pregnancy can change some of these facial features too.
You can help reverse nature with anti-aging options available to you. You can nurture and rejuvenate your facial skin through a multitude of options that have been proven to be effective. Some of these include the use of facial fillers. They can be a part of your Best Mommy Makeover.
Many people look older because they lose fat volume in their face as they age. This loss of facial fat volume results in the formation of creases and sunken areas on the face. These facial lines, creases and wrinkles can make one look tired, drawn, down in the mouth … and years older.
Have you noticed that your face has changed and is looking older? Did you know that there are cosmetic solutions to reversing these changes and turn back the clock to make you look younger? One technique for doing this is to use specially formulated compounds called facial fillers.
Facial fillers can plump up these defects by infusing volume back into the sunken areas and deep creases that have developed on your face over time. By filling these areas, they smooth the contour of your face, which helps give you a more youthful look. They help you look more like you looked years ago.
The areas on your face that can be treated with facial fillers include the wrinkles and creases around your lips and those lines that run down from your nose to the corners of your mouth, also called the nasolabial folds. Deep sunken lines and areas at the lower corners of your mouth that give you that sad look can be filled, which pushes the corners up to give you more of a happier look. Sunken areas below the eyes and in the cheeks can be filled to restore your facial volume in these areas to help pull up the skin that has fallen and help restore a more youthful look.
There are many facial fillers available to you that can restore volume to your face. These include hyaluronic acid type fillers, such as Restylane and Juvederm, and others such as Radiesse, Cosmoderm and Cosmoplast. For larger areas, you may want to consider using your own fat to fill your facial volume needs. Called autologous fat transfer, this method may be ideal for what is called rebalancing the volume in your face.
Facial fillers are injected into the face while you’re awake in the comfort of your physician’s office. Usually only local anesthesia or ice is needed to numb the areas and make the procedure comfortable. Each filler will provide volume that lasts for differing periods of time, from 6 months to a year or longer. Each has its advantages and disadvantages, special uses and special characteristics. A thorough discussion of these should be made with your physician before you have facial fillers injected into your face.
Once done, all fillers are very good at giving your face improved volume that will smooth the contours of your face and give it a younger appearance. Most require recurrent injections to maintain the volume, and the numbers of treatments are variable, depending on the type of filler used.
Fillers can also be infused in the lips to improve lip volume. Luscious lips are back in style and can give you more youthful, sexy looking lips. Lip enhancement using facial fillers is a popular procedure that many women do on a regular basis. Fillers can plump out naturally thin or flat lips, erase vertical wrinkles around the lips, and restore definition to lips that have lost their youthful contours. Most fillers provide these results for six to twelve months.
Using facial fillers to give you a more youthful looking face is one of many modalities that are considered anti-aging options for you. They can correct some of the effects that aging can do to your face, and some of these changes can also come about due to pregnancies. Thus, they can be a part of your Best Mommy Makeover.
