Are Fillers Worth Their Price by Edmonton Dermatology Clinic

Lip Fillers | Are Fillers Worth Their Price

There are many things we can do to turn the clock back on our skin. The first thing is to protect your skin from the sun’s harmful rays. It is acceptable if you get some sun each day to give you the warmth and Vitamin D but you cannot get enough vitamins from the sun without subjecting yourself to sun damage of the skin.

The tricky thing is you will not see this damage as it is happening. The damage from our youth shows up much later as we age. The best piece of advice you could give your younger self is to protect your skin with a mineral block so that the sun doesn’t hurt your skin now as well as lead to damage that shows later.

How to prevent early aging as much as possible

The sun is the biggest contributor to early aging. An SPF 30 or higher is recommended even if you are not in direct sunlight or there is cloud cover. Wearing sunglasses and a hat will also help tremendously.

Realistically we all know it’s nearly impossible to stay out of the sun’s harmful rays 100% of the time over our lifetime. Additionally, we may have been exposed more than we wish we had been when we were young or just did not know better to protect our skin.

To help with looking and feeling younger you will want to start using anti-aging skin care products. When you are in your late twenties and beyond it is time to start a regular skin routine that includes a collaboration with your dermatologist. Things to add to your regimen are products that target fine lines and wrinkles.

Staying consistent is key

Always stay consistent with using a gentle cleanser daily, moisturize multiple times a day and use eye cream. You may want to add an anti-aging serum or night cream depending on your texture and skin’s preferences. Be sure to use pharmaceutical grade products that offer purity, potency, and effectiveness. At Edmonton Dermatology we offer only the best products in the clinic during procedures as well as for purchasing and using at home.

Get rid of bad habits

This next tip is going to make you look at the things you do in your life that may be counterproductive to longevity and looking younger. You will want to avoid smoking and alcohol to prevent aging. These habits and the ingredients in them can cause you to develop wrinkles and other signs of aging.

This is something only you can decide to change. Is it worth the benefit to quitting? Maybe this next statistic will help you decide. These habits can also increase the risk of having skin cancer. If you cannot quit altogether please consider cutting back as much as possible. Limiting alcohol will also help you sleep better which is also a contributing factor to being healthy.

Dermal Fillers – kicking it up a notch

You have considered all the things we have mentioned so far and put them into practice but now you may want to consider kicking it up a notch even more. You want to see a more immediate change in looking younger by smoothing out your skin’s fine lines, wrinkles and hollowness that every person experiences to some degree as they age. The answer you are searching for is at your dermatology clinic.

It is a great time to consider Botox and fillers to give you the boost you are seeking to address these concerns. Some questions people ask first is how much do these procedures cost and are they worth it? Will they really do what they promise to do? Will the results add a noticeable youthfulness to the surface of the skin? The answer are all yes! Botox and fillers do what they boast.

What is Botox used for?

Botox is used to treat the lines and wrinkles on your forehead, between your brows and the lines around the eyes. The cost is worth it especially when you compare to other antiaging procedures. You will see an almost instant difference.

It takes about 14 days for the full effect to peak and then from there it diminishes every week until the body completely metabolizes the Botox and it is disappears from the body. This typically takes three to four months to do. There is no downtime after this procedure and results are visible within the first few days if not sooner.

Fillers are a bit different than Botox from price to the length of time they remain in the body. They are also administered in different areas of the face. Typically, they are injected around the mouth, in the lips, under the eyes, around the nose and cheekbones as well as the jaw line.

How much more expensive are fillers?

This procedure will cost you more than Botox but it is a different product all together. Botox is a chemical that paralyzes the muscle, so it stops creasing the skin. Fillers are made up of different things and Hyaluronic Acid is the most popular kind. This is injected into the skin to plump it up or fill in the hollowness that happens with age.

Fillers are worth the price because they give an instant look of youthfulness. They last much longer than Botox and most of them are comprised of ingredients that are found naturally in the body. This means they do the job to make you look younger and are easily accepted by the skin as natural.

How long do fillers last?

They can last up to eighteen months depending on how fast your body metabolizes. Fillers are ideal for plumping up your lips, filling in fine lines and wrinkles, helping with texture changes, skin laxity and drooping and addressing loss of volume and fullness. Fillers require no downtime and results are seen in as little as a day.
