For anyone looking to enhance their appearance, fillers are a great way to do so. While many people consider fillers once they have fine lines or wrinkles, they are also a great option to proactively address the potential effects of aging. One of the major benefits of fillers is that they are minimally invasive as compared to other cosmetic procedures. Depending on your unique needs, you may decide to get Botox, dermal fillers, or both. While fillers can last months, it’s great to maximize the benefits. Below you will find more information on which option may be right for your and how to make your fillers last longer.
Types of Fillers
Fillers are injections that go underneath your skin to address issues such as fine lines and wrinkles. Depending on your needs, you may consider Botox and dermal fillers. However, it’s important to know the difference as each has its own unique benefits. Botox is used to relax your muscles which helps reduce the risk of fine lines and wrinkles deepening. Oftentimes people will get these before fines lines even appear as a proactive measure. Getting strategically placed Botox can help keep your skin smooth and wrinkle-free.
On the other hand, dermal fillers are used to plump your skin and add volume. These can help with filling out wrinkles, but they are also helpful in adding any lost volume that occurred due to the natural aging process. Before your consultation, consider which areas of your face you would like enhance and share this information at the appointment.
Make Your Fillers Last Longer
For those who decide to get fillers, one of the most important aspects of the process is caring for your skin after you get them. This can maximize the results of your fillers to not only help them last longer, but fully enhance your appearance.
One of the best ways to maximize your results is to combine your filler treatment with a cosmetic facial treatment. Some of the best treatments include laser skin resurfacing and chemical peels to help with any skin texture issues. Talk with your provider about the best combinations for your unique skin care needs.
One of the best ways to ensure your results last when it comes to fillers is to ensure that you get treated again before your prior treatment completely wears off. Without the fillers, your skin may be more susceptible to wrinkles, so getting your treatments on schedule can help keep your skin looking youthful and wrinkle-free.
Skincare and SPF:
If you are spending the time and money on filler treatments, it’s crucial to also have a great daily skincare routine. While treatments can do wonders for your skin, the daily maintenance of your skin needs to be consistent and catered towards your unique skincare needs. Some of the non-negotiables include a gentle cleanser, moisturizer, and SPF. You should be using at least SPF 30. And it should be applied every morning before you leave the house. And even if you are not leaving the house! You can incorporate other skincare products into your daily routine. These can include retinol or vitamin C. But find out what works for you and maintain that routine between your filler treatments.
