Medical spa professionals share the 411 on fillers and getting a natural and youthful look.
While people may look in the mirror and want to rid themselves of the evidence of aging, it is understandable that they may be hesitant to have things injected under their skin to do it. We have all seen celebrities that have done so much to their faces that they look less like themselves and more like wax figures, but there are medical treatments that can be done nearly painlessly and can give patients natural-looking results that create a youthful glow. One of the treatments that can achieve this is the use of dermal fillers.
Dermal fillers are substances that are injected under the skin to fill in the gaps created by collagen loss and aging. It plumps the skin, removing wrinkles and creating a more youthful look. The products used in fillers are FDA approved and are metabolized by the body, so the effects are temporary and treatments must continue in order to maintain the desired look. The two major brands of fillers are Juvéderm and Radiesse. They are basically two different chemical compounds that are naturally made by the body: hyaluronic acid and calcium hydroxylapatite.
Hyaluronic Acid(HA): This can be used on lips, cheeks, and eyes. It is combined with lidocaine to reduce discomfort and lasts anywhere from 6 to 12 months. It can last even longer depending on the rate at which the body metabolizes it.
Calcium Hydroxylapatite(CaHA): This substance is normally found in human bones and is known to stimulate collagen production. It is a thicker substance used primarily for the hands and lower jaw for more severe wrinkles. It usually lasts longer than HA, anywhere from 12 to 18 months+.
Fillers should not be done by just any cosmetologist or aesthetician. This is a medical procedure and should be performed by someone who has the proper training and experience. This would include nurses and nurse practitioners, doctors, and cosmetic surgeons. Other qualifications to look for might include:
Preferring a more natural aesthetic for patients.
Extensive experience with injectable cosmetic products.
Is educated about the latest techniques.
Is thorough with cleanliness and other procedures.
Allows you to ask questions and provides clear answers.
Is concerned for your health as well as your appearance.
Remember that you can achieve the look you want if you find a reliable provider. Check out websites and look at patient galleries. Figure out exactly what you want and be willing to take the advice of the trained professional as well. Do your research so you can be confident when you go in for a consultation that the look you want will be what you get. If you trust your provider, you can rest assured the procedure will be safe and you will achieve the look you feel you deserve.
