Growing old is undoubtedly a blessing, since you’re given a long life to grow a family, spend time with friends, a learn lessons of wisdom you wish you could tell your 15-year-old self. The less resilient skin that comes with age, however, isn’t always seen as such a blessing. By the age of 25, your body chemistry alters in a way that reduces and even stops the production of collagen and elastin. Without collagen and elastin, the skin becomes thinner, dryer, and etched with wrinkles. To fight these signs of aging you need to supplement your skin with the elements it needs to maintain a youthful glow.
Facial rejuvenation is currently a growing trend to erase wrinkles, replenish lost volume, and gain back fresh, healthy skin. Using a quick and painless injection, volumizing fillers plump up the skin and smooth lines and wrinkles. Results are immediate!
You can now receive these fillers at your dentist’s office for cavity protection and skin transformation all in one place. Three of the most popularly used fillers are listed below. If you’re considering knocking years from your appearance while still looking naturally healthy, these are effective solutions for you!
Radiesse: This gel filler immediately restores facial volume and even stimulates production of your own collagen. This means that fine lines and creases that run from your nose to the corners of your mouth can be filled in instead of making you look worn out and older than you really are. Results can last a year or two!
