As you age, you become more concerned with taking steps to maintain your youthful appearance. You start to invest in creams, you start to read about surgical and non-surgical procedures like dermal fillers that can help and you invest time and energy in making yourself look good. You try to stay out of the sun, you wear sunscreen and you will even wear a ridiculous-looking large brimmed hat to prevent you from aging prematurely.
The fact is that by the time a person reaches age 50, they have lost up to 20 percent of their facial volume. That’s one fifth. This is why as a person gets older, their face begins to look tired, the skin is sagging and they just look older.
It only stands to reason that if a person looks older because their face is deflating, then to restore a natural and youthful look, a person must restore their facial volume. Many believe that they can accomplish this goal by using topical face creams. And while it is true that taking steps to keep your skin healthy is important, what happens underneath your skin is more important than what happens on the surface of your skin.
The reason why your face may be looking gaunt is because some of the bone and some of the fat in your face has disappeared. You can think about your face like a pillowcase that is covering a pillow that has shrunk. When the pillow is full-size, the pillowcase is tight and fits well. However, as the pillow shrinks, the pillowcase starts to develop wrinkles. This is the exact same thing that happens to your face.
You go from having a heart-shaped face to having a face that becomes flat, square and longer. There is nothing that makeup can do to fix this problem. Makeup can contrast the color of your face and highlight different colors on your face. However, when you lose facial volume, something more than just a cover-up is needed. Makeup can do nothing to add curves to your face that are not there.
The more facial volume you lose, the more facial softness you lose. It is important to understand that even the best facelift in the world will not look natural if steps are not taken to restore facial volume.
This is where dermal fillers come into play. Dermal fillers use natural and synthetic products to restore the volume to your face. Many of these fillers use hyaluronic acid in different concentrations, depending on the part of the face that it is used on. Dermal fillers have been approved by the FDA and can add volume to your face that can last for up to a year, depending on the product used, the area treated and the degree of initial deflation.
As you age, it is only natural that you’re going to be concerned about your appearance. Dermal fillers are an excellent way for you to restore volume to your face and bring back your youthful fullness.
