Warm sunlight, fair weather days, and lazy weekends at the beach – who doesn’t love summer?
Since we associate this time of the year with swimsuit season, most people engage in body sculpting or body contouring programs for at least a couple of months beforehand to prepare. Getting a summer-ready body does take a fair bit of time and effort.
Ideally, though, you shouldn’t neglect your face (or your anti-aging regimen) in the process. Fortunately, there’s a faster and more effortless cosmetic procedure for that.
They’re called dermal fillers and here’s how they can help you look your best once #HotGirlSummer comes around:
What are Dermal Fillers?
Dermal fillers are injectables that add or restore volume. The most popular ones are typically made of hyaluronic acid (which is a substance that occurs naturally within the human body), so there’s virtually no risk of rejection or allergic reactions.
Usually, dermal fillers are used to rejuvenate sagging or hollowness, but they can help contour or reshape some parts of the face, such as the bridge of the nose and the jawline.
Anti-Aging and Beyond: Benefits of Dermal Fillers
As we age, the body’s collagen and elastin production tends to decrease. This leads to the skin losing its youthful plumpness and elasticity, and can make the face appear tired, gaunt, and sunken.
Dermal fillers are a form of skin rejuvenation that restore volume to areas like sagging cheeks and under eye hollows to create a more youthful yet still natural look. Another anti-aging benefit is that dermal fillers fill in and help smooth static wrinkles like nasolabial folds and marionette lines.
Fillers are also great for helping you achieve the perfect pout. In the right hands, dermal fillers don’t just add volume to the upper and lower lips. They can also help correct asymmetry, smooth out lip lines and wrinkles, and define your Cupid’s bow.
Making the Most Out of Dermal Fillers During the Summer
Unlike chemical peels that require you to avoid the sun for weeks, dermal fillers are great for a summer pick-me-up since they hardly require any downtime and take only minutes to inject.
So long as you don’t poke, pinch, or prod the area for several hours after the procedure, you can actually hit the beach right after and no one will be able to tell you had anything done. Just don’t forget to slap on some sunscreen (and perhaps a pair of sunglasses and a wide-brimmed hat while you’re at it) to protect your skin from the harsh rays.
And since the plumping effects of dermal fillers can last months, you can enjoy that plump, youthful look for the entire season effortlessly.
