Using Fillers for Anti-Aging and Prevention
We’ve all seen the fantastic results that injectable dermal fillers can achieve in the hands of a skilled plastic surgeon. Patients whose faces have begun to develop a drawn or sunken look due to aging, stress, and the loss of facial volume can be restored to a fresher, more youthful appearance through the use of injectable fillers. But did you know that injectable fillers can actually prevent the signs of aging from appearing in the first place? In the past, plastic surgeons primarily used injectables to diminish the signs of aging. That was before the top practitioners discovered that their patients were able to maintain their youthful facial appearance for much longer when they used anti-aging fillers as a preventative measure. This revolutionary approach to aging allows patients to keep their smooth, glowingly youthful facial appearance for years longer than ever before.
As we get older, we begin to lose volume in our faces. Aging factors such as slower collagen production and changing hormone levels cause our underlying facial muscles to atrophy, bone mass and density to decrease in our cheekbones, and facial fat to thin out and dissipate from our cheeks, face, and lips. This loss of facial volume gradually affects the appearance of our faces, creating wrinkles and deep groves. Nasolabial folds (smile lines), marionette lines framing our mouth, and chin wrinkles become prominent and noticeable. Wrinkles begin to surround our lips as lips become flatter. Injectable fillers can plump out our skin and make these wrinkles less obvious, but the damage remains in the skin.
Instead of waiting until you have prominent facial wrinkles and grooves, Dr. Berman can start you on a regimen of injectable anti-aging treatments to prevent these unsightly wrinkles from ever forming. When patients are in their mid-twenties, Dr. Berman can begin using Dysport or Botox for prevention in the forehead region and around eyes. Using Botox injections to relax muscles in these areas can prevent the so-called “crows’ feet” wrinkles and forehead from forming so you retain the fresh, luminous appearance of your youth.
As soon as your facial structure begins losing volume, Dr. Berman can begin injecting small amounts of Voluma, Sculptra, Juvaderm, Restylane or other dermal fillers to maintain your youthful volume. For most patients, the need for dermal fillers begins to occur when they are in their early 30’s. Since your skin never has the chance to form wrinkles, your face keeps its smooth, firm, and flawless appearance.
