Injectable fillers carry less risks than surgery and downtime is minimum
Dr. Roly Borges is an NYC based expert in the application of cosmetic treatments like Restylane, Perlane, Juvederm, hyaluronic acid and collagen.
Nasolabial folds, also known as ¨smile lines¨ or “marionette lines,” are common facial features that become pronounced over time. Nasolabial folds become more evident as the skin loses elasticity and moisture. One of the most common factors that can cause these lines to start appearing earlier is smoking.
Face wrinkles are also caused by sun exposure and collagen loss. Over the years, our bodies no longer produce the same amount of collagen they did before. That is why skin starts to look thinned, saggy and less firm. Dermal fillers like Juvederm not only diminish wrinkles, but also stimulate your own collagen. The result of a cosmetic treatment is a plump and healthy skin.
Aging changes in the skin are prominent during the late 30s or early 40s, sometimes earlier due to hereditary factors. To reduce or prevent the appearance of wrinkles on your skin, it is crucial to protect it from the sun, stop drinking and smoking and practice facial yoga exercises.
Practice facial yoga. This relaxation technique is a series of poses designed to tone face muscles. The best thing about facial yoga is that it is entirely natural. On top of reducing wrinkles, it releases tension and helps alleviate any tightness that you may carry around your face.
Exercise the muscles on your face. If you do facial exercises for 20 minutes, you tone your muscles while diminishing wrinkles. You can relax facial muscles, decrease stress levels and enhance nutrient flow.
Take care of your skin by limiting sun exposure and avoiding drinking alcohol and smoking. Natural home remedies can also reduce your smile lines. Homemade facial masks clarify, moisturize and cleanse your skin without spending a large amount of money.
To obtain enhanced and immediate results choose injectable fillers. There is a variety of FDA-approved fillers such as Restylane, Perlane, Juvederm, hyaluronic acid and collagen. Each of them is composed of different substances, so you can choose the filler that best suits the desired aesthetic result and duration of the effect.
Before administering any cosmetic treatment, make sure you choose a certified professional. Schedule a consultation to ask your physician all your doubts to determine which product is best for you.
You will be able to see natural results from the first visit. Keep in mind that results are temporary. You may receive another treatment session when the substance is completely absorbed by the body. It is normal that you experience some swelling and localized redness.
Since many of the fillers are made from substances naturally found in the human body, injectable treatments like collagen and hyaluronic acid do not require an allergy test. Dermal fillers are safe when used properly.
The side effects of dermal fillers are rare. It is common to experience redness and swelling for 48 hours approximately. However, if symptoms persist, consult your physician for further instructions.
Injectable fillers are not permanent; their effects can last from 4 to 12 months, depending on the filler substance. Results look natural and can be noticeable immediately after a treatment. The number of injections depends on the facial area being treated.
Getting facial injections may cause some discomfort; however, they are not painful. Fillers are applied to the skin using a fine needle. Experts on the application of cosmetic treatments know the amount of substance that must be applied to guarantee successful results.
Dermal fillers approved by the FDA include Juvederm, Restylane, Perlane, Radiesse Hyaluronic acid and Collagen. Thousands of people around the world have received injectable treatments with results that meet their expectations. Dermal fillers are considered a safe aesthetic procedure to soften wrinkles. The treatment session only takes about 40 minutes. After a filler injection you may experience some pain and swelling, but those effects may last up to 48 hours. Each treatment session produces long-lasting results and natural enhancement.
Hyaluronic acid fillers like Juvederm, Perlane and Restylane typically last from 6 to 12 months, depending on the area. The long-lasting duration of the treatment makes them ideal for first-time filler patients. Thicker dermal fillers like Juvederm ultra plus tend to last longer. Injectable treatments provide noticeable and natural results at a cost-effective price. Nasolabial lines or deep nasolabial folds can be corrected with non-invasive treatments, which restore the lost volume and soften the appearance of creases. For expert advice, ask your physician to recommend the right filler for your skin.
Dermal fillers are the second-most popular facial procedure, after Botox. The reasons for their popularity are its amazing results and affordable price. Right after the injections, the treated area may be red, sore, tender or slightly swollen. These effects are normal and dissipate within one or two days. If a person with lack of experience applies dermal filler injections, serious side effects like infection and allergic reactions are possible. It is of paramount importance to choose a certified professional to avoid potential risks such as paralysis, blindness or necrosis.

Patients over 18 years old can treat nasolabial folds. You can get an injectable treatment when you start to see aging signs. Most people start to notice their folds in their 30s, but it depends on hereditary factors, sun exposure and how well you take care of your skin. There is not an age limit, patients in their 70s or 80s also get injectable treatments. If you have had allergic reactions to specific medications before, you may let your physician know. Remember that results are not permanent; they may last from 4 to 12 months depending on the filler you choose. Ask your doctor all your doubts and concerns at your private consultation.
After the approval of the first hyaluronic-based filler in 2003, a range of HA fillers came to the market. Hyaluronic acid fillers do not require an allergy test and results last for about 6 months, depending on how fast the body absorbs the filler.
Collagen was the first filler to be approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) in the early 1970s because it is a gentle substance, not very inflammatory and rarely caused swelling, redness or bruising.
Bovine collagen was approved in 1981 by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA). This dermal filler has gained great popularity and was marketed under the name Zyderm.
Only certified professionals should apply cosmetic injections. Choose a doctor with the proper experience and education to ensure you remain in safe hands. The successful results of your treatment depend on the hygiene standards, the amount of substance applied, appropriate filler selection and proper placement of the filler. Take your time to do your research and schedule a consultation to make sure you feel comfortable with your doctor.
