The skin across the face is one of the first things we see. After reaching 40, it may not be the first thing we want to see anymore, however. Lines and wrinkles can appear, causing you to look older than you are – or older than you feel. This can lead to self-consciousness issues, low self-esteem and a general feeling of not looking your best.
Breakthroughs in dermatology prove that many of the results of aging can be turned back. Anti-aging products have been on the market for years. Many of them focus solely on lines and wrinkles. However, with Botox, fillers and even laser treatments, it’s possible to refinish the skin on the face to smooth out even the smaller lines and wrinkles for a much more youthful look.
Volume loss underneath the surface of the skin is what causes a lot of the aging to take place. While some treatments focus on collagen replenishment, which is responsible for a lot of the volume, many dermatologists have been working with fillers. These fillers can be inserted into various areas of the face to plump up the features.
Whether it’s being inserted in the cheeks to offer a suppler looking cheekbone, in the forehead to ease worry lines or along the edges of the mouth to smooth out frown lines, the filler can be just what many need to look years younger. The added volume is enough to take care of the indented lines and wrinkles that have formed over the years.
Juvederm is one of the most common fillers. It is also the number one performed procedure in the United States right now. Of all procedures performed of a cosmetic nature, Juvederm accounts for over half of them. Due to the rising popularity, it is estimated that many other anti-aging fillers will be available on the market within the next few years.
While fillers deal with volume issues, laser resurfacing deals with other flaws in the skin. When it’s not about adding volume, lasers can remove damaged skin cells. This includes scars, layers of dried skin and even birth marks and other surface damage. Not only will this smooth out the skin but it will also help to stimulate new skin growth.
The saying of “you are only as old as you feel” can now translate to your looks when you explore the various fillers that are on the market.
