If this hasn’t happened yet, one day it will. You wake up in the morning, look in the mirror and there you see one of your parents. On that day you’ll decide that something has to change.
There is a way to change your appearance in one day. This can be done with very little downtime. And you can regain your youth by the next day. With injectable fillers you can capture 5 to 10 years in the course of one afternoon.
The two most common fillers are hydroxyapatite and hyaluronic acid. The brand-name of the former is Radiesse. Hyaluronic acid comes in many forms such as Restylane, Juvederm and Perlane. Each product has certain advantages and disadvantages. The hydroxyapatite product is good for increasing bone volume such as raising the cheekbones or providing a stronger jaw. The hyaluronic acid product is better for smoothing fine lines, filling in the tear trough deformities underneath the eyes and eliminating bags around the eyes. The combination of the two is even better.
Another recent innovation that has made this process less traumatic and it has improved the cosmetic outcome has been the use of micro cannulas. Micro cannulas are blunt needles with the opening to the side of the needle. After a very small incision made with a larger needle one can introduce the micro cannula and raise a space underneath the skin to accept the injectable filler with very little trauma to the surrounding soft tissue. It’s actually amazing how painless this procedure can be.
Procedures not very expensive either. One afternoon session will probably cost around $1,500 and last for approximately nine months. There may be a little bit of bruising after the procedure but within two or three days things are almost back to normal and the face is rejuvenated.
