If you are getting older, you have no doubt noticed that fine lines and wrinkles and a loss of facial volume in your cheeks have begun appearing. These unwelcome changes in your face can have you looking older than you actually feel, leading to lower self-esteem and even harming your work and relationships. Many people seem to feel that the only solution to problems like these is to have some type of surgery. However, many also would like to avoid surgery, since it can be risky, expensive, and require too much downtime. The good news is that treatments like fillers are available that are safer, less expensive, and require little to no downtime while still offering significant results.

A Closer Look at Fillers

If your cheeks have lost fullness or you are dealing with fine lines and wrinkles, fillers may be right for you. A filler usually contains hyaluronic acid to replace the amount that has been lost as you age.

Hyaluronic acid is a substance produced within your body and is found most commonly in muscles, soft tissue, and skin tissue. It acts like a sponge within each of your cells, cushioning joints, protecting your eyes, and hydrating your skin.

Skin depleted of hyaluronic acid becomes more thin and dry. The result is a loss of skin volume, which is particularly apparent in the face and cheek area. Injecting additional hyaluronic acid in the form of a filler can help restore your normal levels and reverse the drying process that leads to wrinkles and facial volume loss.

Are Fillers Right for Me?

Fillers may be right in your case if you want a temporary solution to a loss of fullness in your face or wrinkles. In order to have an optimum outcome, you should not be on blood thinners. The treatment may be right for you if you are healthy, a non-smoker, and have realistic expectations.

Is This a Permanent Solution?

No, fillers are not permanent. The product will be gradually metabolized by your body. On the other hand, it offers results that are soft and natural because we are only replacing hyaluronic acid that you have lost over the years. You will simply look like a younger version of yourself.
