Reducing the appearance of aging and wrinkles can have all kinds of benefits. In front-facing careers, rejuvenating your look might give you a confidence boost. Even people who don’t do work facing the public can find their self-esteem is improved when they love the way they look.
We could go on and on about the benefits of rejuvenation, but let’s focus on the science – the advantage of facial fillers, specifically, for rejuvenation.
Harvard has an excellent primer on dermal fillers; in essence, they’re substances that can be injected in order to smooth wrinkles and add volume. There are a lot of different dermal fillers on the market, but the ones that are preferred by dermatologists use substances that are already present in the skin, like hyaluronic acid or stem cells.
Compared to traditional facelifts, facial fillers have three advantages:
- Little recovery time
- Low risk
- Lower expense
On the first front, the recovery time for facial fillers is basically nil. You’ll go into the office, have a local anaesthetic applied, then have the filler injected – it’s as simple as that. You can get some facial fillers done over the course of a lunch break, making them an excellent option for people who are always on the go.
Facial fillers also are incredibly low risk, especially when compared to traditional facelifts, which are quite intensive. The reason dermatologists opt to use fillers that are already present in the skin is that there’s a very low risk of these fillers being rejected. The stem cell facelift in Beverly Hills is a perfect example of this principle. Stem cells are harvested from your own body fat, which greatly reduces any risks or rejection. The Stem Cell Facelift is a bit different then other facial fillers though as it is a procedure that will involve liposuction and injections- sometimes light swelling and bruising can occur.
Finally, facial fillers like the Stem Cell Facelift are far less expensive than a traditional facelift – often about half the cost or less. Consider how much effort goes into a surgical facelift. You need an anesthesiologist, the ability to constantly monitor all kinds of vitals, a long recovery time (wherein you can’t work and make money), and more.
None of this would necessarily matter if facial fillers weren’t effective. Fortunately, they’re incredibly effective. The Stem Cell Facelift lasts anywhere from 5 to 10 years, and the results are noticeable after your swelling and bruising subsides. The whole face from forehead to jowls can be treated at the same time, which means one appointment will be all most people need to see the results they want.
Interested in facial fillers? The first step is to conduct a complete consultation with a professional dermatologist and certified cosmetic surgeon. They’ll figure out what the best filler is for you, then determine where the filler should go. The biggest risk with fillers is when they’re done by someone who isn’t qualified, so be sure to ask about your dermatologist’s certification and experience.
