Filling you in on the basics of fillers
For centuries, people have been looking for the best ways to keep themselves looking as young as possible for as long as possible. Fillers are one of the most recent additions to this pursuit of eternal youth.
Fillers made their first appearance on the cosmetic scene in the 1970s. Back then, men and women alike would inject their faces with bovine (beef) collagen in hopes of restoring their youthful glow. Fortunately, fillers have since made impressive advancements and are now derived from hyaluronic acid, which is a substance found naturally in humans.
There are many different brands of fillers available on the market today, but we’re proud to offer one of the industry’s leading fillers: JUVÉDERM®.
How JUVÉDERM works
Hyaluronic acid is JUVÉDERM’s main ingredient. This clear, gooey substance is known for its ability to retain water and support your tissues. You’re likely to find high concentrations of hyaluronic acid in your skin, connective tissue, and eyes.
It can do amazing things like relieve joint pain, promote wound healing, and even soothe the effects of acid reflux, but what it’s most famous for is its ability to refresh and restore your skin.
Over time, whether from sun damage or increased age, your body loses its natural storage of hyaluronic acid. That’s one of the main reasons your skin starts to sag, become wrinkled, and show other signs of aging.
When injected into your face, JUVÉDERM and its high concentration of hyaluronic acid swoops in a refills your body’s supply of this important component. Because JUVÉDERM fillers use a natural substance, you can be sure that your face will look fuller and more youthful but not unnatural or puffy.
Fillers can address just about any skin issue, including:
- Loose and sagging skin
- Lines around your mouth and nose
- Smile creases
- Other fine lines and wrinkles
The process of getting a filler is practically painless. Dr. Carlson has ice, topical numbing cream, or local anesthetic injections available to keep you completely comfortable. You won’t need to carve a lot of time out of your busy day to get treatment either, as your session should only take around fifteen minutes.
Recovery is a snap as well. You might experience a little swelling, bruising, or redness around your injection site, but these mild side effects typically subside after 24 hours. We do encourage you to avoid any extraneous exercise for a couple of days, but otherwise, you can resume your normal activities.
You don’t have to spend another day feeling less than your best or worried about sacrificing your natural beauty to get the youthful look you want. Our fillers can give you the best of both worlds and make you feel beautiful inside and out.
