Are you noticing visible signs of aging and wondering if there is anything you can do about it? For a while, BOTOX® was the number one craze when it came to rectifying visible signs of aging. There is no doubt that BOTOX® is an effective way of turning back the clock, but it is not the only option at our med spa in San Antonio.
Facial fillers, much like BOTOX®, are effective in reversing the signs of aging, such as wrinkles and sagging skin. However, fillers function differently. Whereas BOTOX® works by inhibiting muscle activity in the face to keep wrinkles away, fillers basically fill out the lines. Also called dermal fillers, facial fillers rejuvenate the face, making it look plump and youthful.
Here are three ways facial fillers at our spa in San Antonio can make you look younger today:
Reduce the Appearance of Wrinkles
Wrinkles are a common problem that can still affect younger generations. There are lots of factors that encourage wrinkles and accelerate the aging process, such as too much exposure to the sun, smoking, and stress, among other lifestyle habits. If you are looking in the mirror and noticing you are aging faster than you should, fillers can help maintain your youthful look.
The best part about dermal fillers is that they tackle wrinkles and sagging skin by stimulating the production of collagen, a protein responsible for skin elasticity and rejuvenation in young people. As you age, the production of collagen in your skin declines, but fillers can help restore this vital protein to improve your appearance.
Restore Facial Volume
One of the apparent signs of aging is the loss of facial volume. You may get sunken temples and cheeks, which can make your face appear stiff with hollow areas. Dermal fillers are best known for restoring facial volume and giving you that youthful lift right after the treatment.
Restore Supple Lips
The lower region of the face, the chin and lips usually stand out, especially when you age. In particular, your lips thin out and develop fine lines, but there are specific fillers that can be used to restore supple lips.
Dermal fillers are one of the best restorative treatments available for wrinkles and other signs characteristic of aging. Just like BOTOX®, fillers are minimally-invasive as they are injected into the affected area.
