Aging gracefully is an art. Maintaining a youthful appearance through diet and exercise is common practice, but there are other options available. Aesthetic medicine in the form of injectables and fillers provide an ideal adjunct for us to look and feel younger, and to tie into a healthy lifestyle to maintain physical and mental health as we age.
A forty-year-old person will not be twenty again but can maintain a more youthful look for many additional years through aesthetic medicine, which improves self-confidence, productivity and quality of life.
However, most people are misinformed as to how these treatments really work, so let’s shed some light on the subject now.
What are injectable fillers?
Injectable fillers are a carbohydrate fluid that comes in the form of a clear gel. It is injected under the skin to fill a lip, wrinkle or fold. Once injected, it creates volume, creating a healthy and vital appearance. When injected into the lip, it restores a natural and more sensuous look. Lips symbolize sensuality and sexuality. Full lips with an accentuated border are associated with youth and beauty, and when smiling, they comprise the focal point of overall beauty. Deeper wrinkles and folds in the cheek areas are also popular sites for filling, as well as cheekbones, tear trough lines under the eyes and the jaw line. Fillers can even be used to perform a non-surgical nose job in suitable patients.
