When you look back at photos of yourself in your late teens or early twenties and then compare those photographs with the way you look now, what are some of the changes you see in your appearance? If you’re like most people, one of the things that stands out about the change to your appearance has to be the fact that you have less facial volume now than you did when you were younger. This loss of facial volume has changed the contour of your face, making you look older. Would you like to improve the contours of your face? If so, you may benefit from learning more about dermal fillers.
When you’re young, you have more volume in your face. As you get older, those contours change. Gravity takes the volume that you had in your cheeks and starts to pull it down. This is why you may notice that you have jowls, something that you might not have had when you were younger.
What dermal fillers do is provide your face with more volume in the locations where you need it the most. It could be that you can use dermal fillers on larger parts of your face, like your cheeks, or you may be able to use dermal fillers on smaller parts of your face, like your lips. Many people are surprised to see how just a little tweak to their facial volume can improve their perceived appearance. Just adding a touch more volume to your cheeks or adding a touch more volume to your lips may be all that’s needed to make you look years younger.
It could be that the problems you have with facial volume are not necessarily related to age. Maybe you’ve always had thin cheeks or thin lips. If so, you can do something about it. Dermal fillers could be used to enhance your appearance, giving you a softer and more attractive look overall.
One of the nice things about using dermal fillers is that just about anyone can benefit from their results. Since the majority of dermal fillers use hyaluronic acid, something that’s already naturally found in your body, very few people have negative or allergic reactions to these products.
Whether your goal is to fight off the aging process or to enhance the appearance that nature gave you, dermal fillers could work for you. Make an appointment at River Region Dermatology & Laser to find out for sure. Contact us today to schedule a consultation at our office in Montgomery!
