Fillers are a great choice for anyone hesitant about cosmetic procedures. These liquid, ball, or gel fillers are injected into the soft tissue of the face to combat wrinkles, sagging skin, and general appearance of aging. They can also be used to define the lips a little more. How can fillers have such great results? They don’t bring about dramatic change. They keep it subtle. They wear with your face, and they don’t change the basic structure of your face.
Subtle improvements are key
Fillers are such a commonly sought treatment because they’re not dramatic. The difference between before and after fillers is often difficult to specify at first glance. You just look younger, less sleep deprived, and more energetic. It’s not immediately obvious that you’ve had your lips more defined, or that you’ve erased your fine lines. You just look great.
One of the major problems with older plastic surgery techniques is that they offer literally unbelievable improvements. The human eye is very used to noticing what other people look like. It’s why it’s so hard for artists to capture a realistic human when drawing. If there’s even a small error, the viewer’s eye picks up on it right away. The same is true of plastic surgery. If one feature doesn’t fit in, the human eye is drawn to it. Fillers are subtle enough that they can skate under the radar. Someone will look at your face and see you at your best. The fillers are just bringing back fullness that was lost.
Fillers wear naturally
Fillers aren’t a permanent addition to your face. They will wear. This makes them a great product for people who are hesitant to try any sort of procedure. Most fillers will last between 9 and 12 months—only a little longer than a bad haircut. If you find that you don’t like the results, they will start to wear off quite soon. If you like the results you see, you can simply have them reapplied.
The quick wear time is also perfect for fine-tuning your adjustments. After your first results, you can fine-tune your next treatment. Perhaps you’d like slightly more dramatic results; you can use a little more filler. Perhaps you’d like to tackle a wider treatment range, or even slightly reduce the amount you use. It’s possible to adjust according to your needs at any treatment, thus giving you the most control over your treatment plan.
They don’t change the structure of your face
Fillers don’t change any of the main structures of your face. They don’t interfere with the movement of muscles. They definitely don’t do the work of plastic surgery, which can change the bone and cartilage as well as shaping tissue. Fillers help you reclaim your natural looks because they work so superficially. Everything about your face, everything that makes it unique, stays the same. Fillers plump out thin lines, and add a note of definition. They bring your face to its ideal condition, they don’t create anything that wasn’t fundamentally there before.
Fillers keep it subtle. They don’t work as dramatically as other procedures, but they bring your face back to its fullest potential. If you don’t like the results, don’t worry—they wear naturally. You’ll be back to your old self soon.
