Enhance Your Looks By Lifting Instead of Filling

Enhance Your Looks By Lifting Instead of Filling

As medical aesthetic treatments become more popular, it’s becoming easier than ever to achieve the look you want with a quick visit to the clinic. However, there are a wide variety of options available for enhancing your features, and some are better than others. Lately, fillers have become a popularly known treatment for everything from plumping lips to reducing wrinkles. However, with advancements in recent medical aesthetics treatments, they may no longer be the best way to improve your looks. Below we’ll look at some of the pitfalls of using fillers when there are better non-surgical options of facial treatments out there.

The Drawbacks of Dermal Fillers 

Injectable dermal fillers are gel-like substances that are injected beneath the skin. More than 2 million men and women get them each year, hoping to smooth out wrinkles, bump up their cheekbones, or restore a more youthful appearance. However, there are some major drawbacks to consider before using fillers:

  • They often cause bruising, redness, and swelling at the injection site. These side effects can last anywhere from twelve hours to up to a week, resulting in significant downtime and preventing you from returning to your normal routine. 
  • Some fillers, like those derived from hyaluronic acid, can show up under the skin as small red bumps that take a long time to go away. In more severe cases, fillers may result in nodules or bumps under the skin that can be seen and felt and that, in rare instances, may require surgery to remove. 
  • Some people experience allergic reactions to fillers, especially those derived from synthetic ingredients. These can produce rashes, pain, swelling, and discomfort, and take a long time to go away—as long as it takes for the body to break the fillers down.
  • You have to keep going back for more. No fillers last permanently—some wear off in as little as one month, and none last longer than eighteen months, meaning you have to go for repeat visits if you want to keep seeing the same effects.

The Advantages of Aesthetic Treatment Options

Medical aesthetics like wrinkle reduction treatments and skin tightening treatments can actually enhance your appearance the same way fillers do. They can smooth away fine lines, restore a youthful-looking appearance, and plump up skin. However, they have some powerful advantages over fillers:

  • They’re non-surgical and non-invasive. While fillers need to puncture the skin with a needle in order to be injected, aesthetics treatments deliver energy to the skin’s deeper layers without breaking the skin’s protective barrier. 
  • They’re quick and painless, with no downtime. Because they’re non-invasive, aesthetic treatments are generally a very comfortable, pain-free experience. Sessions last between 15-30 minutes, and you can return to your normal activities immediately, since there’s no downtime.
  • They deliver visible results that lasts. Most treatments have a visibly noticeable impact after just one session. After completing your treatment plan, the result can last much longer than those of fillers.
  • They have natural-looking results that look better over time. Aesthetic treatments enhance features in a way that looks natural and authentic. Over time, repeated treatments result in a timeless beauty unmarred by synthetic injectables.
  • They’re healthier for your skin. Because they work with your body’s natural production of collagen and elastin, medical aesthetics actually result in healthier skin overall. Instead of introducing foreign substances that your body has to work hard to break down, aesthetic treatments promote skin health.

Aesthetic Treatment Alternatives to Fillers

Wrinkle reduction treatments deliver targeted radio frequency (RF) energy deep below the skin’s surface to stimulate skin cell renewal and promote increased collagen and elastin production. Instead of adding a foreign substance to your body, they use heat to boost your skin’s natural processes, supporting skin health from the inside out. Quick and effective, wrinkle reduction treatments fade fine lines, restoring firmer, more youthful-looking skin.

Skin tightening treatments work similarly, by gently heating the tissue beneath the skin to promote collagen and elastin production. The result is visibly smoother, tighter, and firmer skin. With both treatments, you can expect to see results after a few quick sessions—some people will see a difference after just one treatment. Best of all, these treatments are both truly non-invasive, making for a comfortable experience with no downtime, and none of the bruising or redness associated with injecting fillers. Additionally, these Venus Treatments are safe for most skin types.
