Anti-Aging Filler Tips

Injectable fillers are one of the most popular cosmetic procedures available today. However, while subtle filler treatments can rejuvenate the face, it’s easy to go over the top and end up not looking natural.

Undoubtedly, dermal fillers can be a quick and easy way to add volume to the face, disguising the signs of aging. Done well, the result can be subtle and rejuvenating but the main risk is endlessly repeating the treatment with hope of looking 20 years younger. What looked good when you were 20 will look very strange at 50. The truth is that the face changes shape over time, losing volume and sagging.



Fillers can replace some of the lost structure but when too much is used between the eyes, cheeks or the temples, it can cause the angles of the face to become distorted.  It takes surprisingly how a little extra volume can create a strange puffy pillow face that is all too common among Hollywood stars.

A successful treatment should always look natural but if you are unhappy there is a solution. Most fillers are made of hyaluronic acid and these can be dissolved easily after the treatment. We do suggest waiting 2 weeks for all swelling has resolve before making any decision. The best thing to remember about all anti-aging and cosmetic procedures is that the aim is to look great for your age, something we at The Laser Image Company happily embrace.


What Fillers To Use?

The most widely used  and safest fillers are made from hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring substance found in our body that rarely cause any reactions. Hyaluronic filler names to look for include Restylane, Voluma, Vollure, Volbella and Juvederm. Radiesse is another terrific filler, but it is calcium based and cannot be dissolved.

Good practitioners offer free follow-up appointments at 2 weeks where any concerns can be tweaked to ensure you are happy.


If Choosing Not to do a Filler?

If you want to fight the signs of aging without fillers, try one of these alternative treatments.

Exfoliate regularly. It will boost cellular turnover even out skin tone, prevent pores from becoming congested and can even banish dry patches. Make sure your skincare routine includes a serum and look for products containing peptides, retinol and vitamin C. Use plenty of moisturizer and never forget the SPF.

Get  laser procedures like Refirme to stimulate collagen and rejuvenate from the inside out. Also microneedling is an outstanding treatment which uses the bodies natural healing process.
