REASONS FOR CHOOSING FILLER INJECTIONS
Since the beginning of history, aging is one of the most worries of any woman because of the wrinkles and annoying marks on the body in general and on the face in particular. So women have been looking for things that keep their faces youthful, some of them have resorted to natural herbs and preparations, and some have resorted to sports and healthy food.
We cannot deny the benefit of sport, healthy food and natural preparations in preserving the skin, but they have a slight effect that is almost nonexistent in the counter factors that surround women, starting from the pollution surrounding us everywhere, passing through bad habits such as smoking, drinking alcohol, staying up late, and ending with psychological pressure and tension. All of them led to the appearance of unwanted wrinkles and lines on the face, perhaps for those who did not exceed forty yet. Then surgeries appeared, and they were one of the appropriate ways for some people to return to the youthful appearance again, but many did not accept the idea because of the risks as it is a facial surgery.
However, the matter has changed after the emergence of filler needles, as it has become easy to obtain an attractive youthful appearance, whether for women or men, and to treat the effects of stress and tension on the face in short time without any risk. Filler needles are used in many places, such as the lips, cheeks, under eye lines, and the nose.
TYPES OF FILLERS
There are two types of filler injections: the first is temporary, which lasts between six months to two years, and the other type is permanent.
THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN FILLERS AND BOTOX
Both botox and fillers are used to overcome the signs of aging and wrinkles, but there are several differences between them, they are:
• Botox is the toxin of botulinum: a substance that helps to remove wrinkles. The filler is one of several substances, such as animal collagen or fat cells, and is used to fill the voids under the skin.
• Botox is used to stretch and relax the muscles, while fillers are used to fill spaces under the skin.
• Botox is used in the places of lines between the eyebrows and on the forehead, and it treats wrinkles at the corner of the eye. As for filler, it is used in the areas above the mouth and cheeks, and recently it has been used to treat dark circles around the eyes.
FILLER INJECTION PROCEDURE STEPS
Filler injection is a non-surgical procedure that does not require general or local anesthesia, but there are some women who fear injection pain, so the doctor uses local anesthesia for them. One of the great advantages of filler injection is that it does not take more than half an hour, and the results can be seen immediately.
EXPECTED RESULTS AFTER FILLER INJECTION
After injecting the filler in the correct way and quantity, the patient can see that the signs of aging have completely disappeared and that there is no trace of any wrinkles in the area that was injected in, and the general appearance of the face has become more youthful and fuller. In addition to the feeling of tightening the face in a natural way that is not exaggerated, all these results lead to a feeling of permanent youth and self-confidence.
