Crucial Facts About Cosmetic Fillers and You!

Crucial-facts-fillers-woman_clockIt seems that we are bombarded with the miracle of how we can turn back the clock and look younger simply by using any number of the plethora of cosmetic fillers on the market. Simply by injecting this products we are told it will have age-reversing abilities and will change our lives.

BUT the real truth is that the product by itself does not necessarily mean you’ll get the results you want. Otherwise anyone, even you, would be able to just insert a small needle in the desired area and get perfect results. I mean that’s what a lot of people do who are diabetics or have epi-pens for certain life threatening allergies.

It’s a fact that dermal fillers have revolutionized the field of cosmetic dermatology. But most people don’t understand how important the role of the dermatologists and/or cosmetic surgeons is.

Let me ask you, if you had a life threatening disease which required surgery, would you want a surgeon that had just graduated or one that has successfully performed that operation thousands of times? It’s not just a question of the product, it’s one of what you do with it!

There are many factors to be considered that most people never think of. So it’s important that if you are considering dermal fillers that you do the research to find someone who is experienced in the following areas.

Knowing how the skin ages: Fillers are just one tool used in anti-aging treatment, and the process of aging does not occur uniformly in all areas of the face. So it’s imperative that the person administering the fillers is knowledgeable on your type of skin and how it ages.

Being knowledgeable about the various types of available fillers: There are a host of fillers available, so it’s imperative to know about the various fillers, their ingredients, particles per mg, cross-linking, the presence of any additives and their shelf life before and after opening the filler.

Being familiar with the technique: There are various methods of injecting dermal fillers, and some of them can be associated with lumps, if administered incorrectly.

Being up to date regarding the approval status of the filler. Many people don’t realize it, but the procedure of injecting dermal fillers is considered to be a medical procedure and hence there is a quality check conducted by various approval bodies in various parts of the world to assert the authenticity and safety of the products.
