These days, cosmetic enhancements are more popular than they have ever been, given society’s increasing acceptance of them. Many of these procedures and surgical techniques have made incredible strides and advanced immensely over the years, limiting downtime and allowing patients to resume their normal everyday routines faster than was previously possible. Among some of the growing trends in cosmetic enhancements are dermal fillers, which are often requested by patients to reduce facial lines and obtain a more youthful appearance.
What Are Fillers?
There are two types of fillers that are available, natural and synthetic. Natural fillers are composed of hyaluronic acid and pose a much smaller risk of causing an allergic reaction. Its results are immediate and last anywhere from 3 to 18 months, even up to 2 years in some cases. For those not interested in committing to a permanent change, these temporary fillers provide enhancements that eventually break down on their own.
Synthetic fillers last longer than naturally-derived ones and are considered semi-permanent. Wrinkles will return to your face as you continue to age or if you have excessive sun damage due to improper skin care.
Am I An Ideal Candidate?
Certain individuals are better candidates for dermal fillers than others. According to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA), it is crucial for patients to be healthy, fit, and preferably non-smokers. Inform your cosmetic physician of any bleeding disorders or allergies. If your skin is swollen or experiencing an infection, you might be required to wait before you move forward with your chosen treatment.
It is also important to set realistic goals and expectations for yourself when considering any form of cosmetic treatment. At Smith Plastic Surgery, we will advise you the most appropriate form of treatment, but ultimately the decision will be yours.
