The conversation around fillers often involves older women who are starting to see the signs of aging showing on their skin. Fine lines begin to develop early on, especially around the eyes and mouth. In order to head off wrinkles and maintain a youthful appearance, many women opt for treatments like Botox, and facelifts.
Unlike Botox, which paralyzes muscles under the skin, preventing them from creating tension that pulls the skin into creases, this treatment actually restores what is lost to time and the aging process. As we age, the body produces less collagen. The lack of collagen allows skin to sink into crevices. Fillers not only prevent and reduce the appearance of fine lines, they can be used to improve the fullness of the cheeks and chin.
How Long do Fillers Last?
Fillers is a term that refers to several medical products. Each product has specific attributes that make them appropriate for various uses and individual situations. In general, they can last from one to two years. Women who begin receiving injections early on may find that they need less material over time, as the insertion of the fillers encourages the body’s natural collagen production cycle.
