Everything You Need to Know About Facial Fillers

Your face undergoes many changes with time due to aging. You might develop wrinkles around your eyes, nose and mouth. Your eyes may develop hollows around them as the fat underneath depletes. Similarly, you may want to have some changes in your facial features e.g. you want to lift your barely visible cheekbones or plump your lips. All these goals can be achieved through facial fillers that have become very popular nowadays.

Here, in this article, we will discuss everything about facial fillers that you must know before deciding to get them. 

What are facial fillers?

Facial fillers are basically a type of dermal fillers that are injected into the skin to correct various facial skin conditions. They can be either natural or synthetic and help you in reducing the wrinkles or fine lines and removing sagging skin from your face. Also, you can use facial fillers to increase the volume under your eyes and around your cheekbones. Facial fillers include all types of fillers such as under-eye fillers, cheek fillers, lip fillers and jawline fillers. Getting facial fillers to enhance your facial appearance is a non-surgical procedure that causes no pain.  

Types of Facial Fillers

The most common type of fillers that is used for facial rejuvenation includes hyaluronic acid-based fillers. They stimulate the natural production of collagen and reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Some of the best and effective fillers that are used for face include;

  • Belotero Balance 
  • Juvederm Voluma 
  • Juvederm Volbella 
  • Restylane 
  • Restylane – Lyft 
  • Restylane Silk 

How long do facial fillers last?

Even though facial fillers are very beneficial, their results are not permanent. They can last from 6 months to 2 years depending on the type of facial filler being used. The main reason for this is that the material of facial fillers gets dissolved and metabolized in the skin over time. So, after two years, the results of facial fillers will no longer be visible. You will have to get fillers again to retain the desired results.

Who is Suitable for Facial Fillers?

You can be a suitable candidate to get facial fillers if you have fine lines around the nose, mouth and eyes. Your lips and cheeks have lost volume and your skin is losing elasticity. Also, you should be mentally and physically healthy to get facial fillers. You should not be a chain smoker and there must be no previous history of any chronic health condition. Individuals who have receding chin can also opt for facial fillers. 

However, you should not think of facial fillers if you have bleeding disorders or you are allergic to the substances used in facial fillers. Females who are pregnant or breastfeeding should also avoid facial fillers. 

Are there any Side-Effects?

Facial fillers are safe to use but there are some side-effects associated with them. Some common risks include;

  • Redness 
  • Swelling 
  • Pain 
  • Bruising 
  • Itching 
  • Rash 

All of these side-effects normally occur around the injection site but subside within 7 to 14 days.
