Dermal Fillers: Are you ready to take the plunge?

Dermal Fillers: Are you ready to take the plunge?


When it comes to non-surgical cosmetic treatments people tend to immediately think anti-wrinkle injections, anti-wrinkle injections and more anti-wrinkle injections. Different ages and different anatomy require different treatments. The question you should ask yourself is: do I want to look younger or do I just want to enhance an area?

In general, people in their 20’s will go for anti-wrinkle injections to eliminate the first signs of aging as well as to prevent further lines from forming and they may also consider a lip enhancement. By the time they are in their 30’s and 40’sthey may be getting more and more into anti-wrinkle injections and may then be considering filling out skin where volume has started to deplete and things are at the beginning of heading south.

Dermal fillers are used for plumping up the skin in areas such as lips, cheeks, tear troughs, nasal labial folds, marionette lines, deep lines and scars. Depending on where you have the treatment will determine which product will be used. Many products are made of a substance which naturally occurs in the skin and depletes with age. The more viscous the product, the longer it will last. The fantastic thing about fillers used at Subtle Transformations is that they are not permanent and in fact, if you are not at all happy with the treatment, then it can be dissolved quickly.

The good news is that dermal fillers are quick treatments when performed by experienced medical staff. When choosing your practitioner it is always safe to go with someone reliable and professional such as the doctors and nurses at the medical clinic, Subtle Transformations. An initial consultation is absolutely vital to assess facial symmetry and to discuss various outcomes and risks of treatments. This will help to decide what is right for your face as whether you really are ready to take the plunge.
