News Roundup — Injectable Fillers
Dermal Fillers Can Reduce Signs of Aging on the Hands
While most anti-aging strategies target the face, the appearance of your hands can also show your age. One revolutionary treatment option to help restore a smoother, more youthful look to your hands has gained recent attention, thanks to Madonna. The star, who has received negative internet comments over the years regarding her aging hands, now gets Filorga hand injections to reduce the appearance of wrinkles, sagging skin and uneven skin tone in her hands. Filorga is currently one of the only injectable fillers specifically designed for use on your hands. Like other injectable wrinkle treatments, Filorga comes with little to no side effects and can be performed in 20 minutes or less.
Injectable Fillers Aren’t Just for Your Face
Injectable fillers are becoming more and more popular for their use in areas other than the face. Although there are a number of similar nonsurgical anti-aging solutions, including laser skin rejuvenation, chemical peels and microdermabrasion, injectables can offer more comprehensive results. Many experienced cosmetic surgeons now use injectable fillers in non-facial areas like the neck, chest, hands, abdomen and buttocks. Whether you want smoother, more youthful-looking skin in these areas or a modest boost of volume in your buttocks, non-facial injectable fillers can be very effective alternatives to common surgical procedures.
Injectable Hyaluronic Acid Fillers Promote Collagen Growth for Healthier Skin
Collagen is a vital component of your skin’s structure. It is the protein that creates the firm, smooth complexion seen in younger women and men. However, as we age, the amount of collagen naturally present in our skin begins to diminish. This can lead to fine lines, wrinkles and sagging skin. One effective solution is hyaluronic acid fillers to help stimulate collagen production. While the immediate effects of injectable fillers will gradually fade away, the hyaluronic acid contained in products like JUVÉDERM® and Restylane® triggers your skin to naturally synthesize more collagen than it otherwise would. This can have lasting benefits on the smoothness and firmness of your complexion.
Lip Injections Are Growing in Popularity
Thanks to the rise of the selfie and celebrity influence from the likes of Kylie Jenner, more and more people are seeking lip injections to enhance the size, shape or symmetry of their lips. Although lip injections offer temporary results that can last up to six months, many people find that this is an added benefit. If they’re not happy with their new look, injectables will gradually fade away and can be adjusted at their next appointment. More permanent solutions like lip implants, on the other hand, require a greater commitment. With the help of a trained and experienced cosmetic surgeon, you can enhance the natural size and shape of your lips without a surgical procedure.
