Not everyone buys fillers for plumping up lips, cheeks and creating sexy jawlines. There are some people who ‘need’ fillers to correct asymmetry, acne scars or the after affects of surgery.
Plastic surgeons working as medics in the army, also use fillers to correct features on soldiers to make them look themselves again.
That is the great thing about fillers, they can be used by people from all walks of life for personal self-esteem and for medicinal reasons. The versatility of fillers means that no-one has to feel guilty about smoothing out wrinkles and looking young again. It’s truly justifiable, all we’re doing is replacing the lost hydration and hyaluronic acid that was once there!
There are still individuals who would love to use fillers, but too hesitant to try. Yes, there are side effects which are true of many treatments. But these side effects, such as swelling and redness do diminish within a week. Side effects are not permanent.
Numbing creams and Lidocaine have revolutionised the way we administer fillers, in making it a more comfortable and positive pain free treatment. If your pain threshold is high enough, or you don’t have tolerance to lidocaine, then you may prefer without lidocaine.
The needles accompanying the fillers are very thin, helping it to glide through skin easily and comfortably.
Another positive for those looking to purchase fillers is that they can choose a filler that most suits how much they are prepared to spend. You may have noticed a 1ml syringe is cheaper than buying a box containing 2x1ml syringes.
Going back to the uses of fillers, the possibilities are endless and if carried out wisely with a lot of preplanning and research, you can create a natural everlasting look.
Young and Old
There are some women or men who will wait until they are in their late fifties, before they agree to use fillers to plump up wrinkles and folds. They will wait till as long as possible before taking the plunge. It’s crow’s nests and folds they are really on target to treat. Plumping lips is secondary and not a priority (yet!).
However, the number of females and males now using fillers at a younger age is increasing, even before they have any sign of their first line or wrinkle. It’s contouring and volume they’re after right now, nothing else.
Many individuals are so aware of what creates an aesthetically pleasing face. The protruding jaw, the lifted cheeks and voluptuous lips. Technology and fillers have changed the way we look now and in the future. It is impressive how the purchase of three boxes, one for each area of the face to treat (jaw, cheeks, lips) can transform a person in a way our ancestors would never have thought possible. We call this the miracle transformation.
