Can Fillers Make You Age Faster?
Fillers are a great option for patients seeking a softer, more youthful look. However, if fillers aren’t injected properly or are overused, it can create undesired results. While the aging process is natural and happens to everyone, its best to avoid exasperating it from bad filler. Although filler can help provide a more youthful appearance, its best to be cautious. There are three different types of fillers. These consist of permanent, semi-permanent, and non-permanent. Permanent and semi-permanent have more long term consequences if overused when compared to non-permanent. Over time with continued use, filler stretches out your skin, expanding pockets within your skin where the filler is injected. Some doctors have opted for non-permanent hyaluronic acid fillers for patients. Hyaluronic acid is a sugar that is naturally produced in the body, and can provide a more youthful look. This filler is naturally broken down by the body over extended periods of time and is considered non-toxic. Not only that, but the results tend to be more natural. However, for all filler types the body tends to break down most filler. After the body breaks down filler, the body will absorb it and the treated area will return to its previous appearance. Natural signs of aging, such as wrinkling and sagging of the skin, could potentially become more noticeable after fillers dissolve.
