Remember when you were younger and your face had a plump and youthful appearance? If you don’t, then a dermal filler might be what you need to bring back your memory. Dermal filler injections are a good choice to fill in areas of the face that are wrinkled and have lost volume, usually around the eyes, cheeks, jawline, and mouth. It can also be injected straight into the lips for thicker lips. Typically, these fillers are small injections of gel and use hyaluronic acid in deep set facial lines.
Collagen is what gives our face better skin and a youthful look, and the general agreement is that by the age of 25, every year we begin to lose around 2% of collagen that our body produces.
It’s easy to confuse dermal fillers with Botox, but they’re not the same and don’t work in the same way. Botox is a muscle relaxer. When it’s injected, the small muscles in our face stop making movements that contribute to wrinkling of the face. A filler, as its name implies, fills in areas where it is injected and plumps out the area.
Here’s a quick guide to help you buy a dermal filler online that will work magic on your face.
Reputable website: Like any other online shopping site, you can find dozens of sites that sell dermal fillers. Make sure the site you choose is reputable. Reputable doesn’t always mean big and the amount of products. It could be a small site, but has correct contact information, a geographical location, answers to your inquiries, etc. It’s also better to choose a site that has ‘http’ on its address since that demonstrates more security on their site.
High Quality: In general, fillers are categorized by the substance they are made from. They are considered cosmetic so there is a quality check conducted. A shared piece of advice by Foxy Fillers tells us to check for product identification. Identification should be clearly stated on the product package to be able to trace back to the original manufacturers. Also, take a little time out to read the return policy of the site you purchase from.
Know how the skin ages: Aging is generic, but our skin doesn’t all age in the same way or at the same pace. You’ll probably find your hands as the first body part to show signs of aging, quickly followed by the face, eyes, and neck. So certain fillers might work better for certain areas of concern. The provider should be able to tell you which filler suits you best. If you receive vague answers it’s best to move on to someone else since a site should know all information about the products they sell.
Protect yourself and your beautiful face
Since dermal fillers are that popular, they’re ready available to buy online. You want to make sure that you’re buying a quality product. If you don’t know what to look for in that product, you could get duped and not get what you paid for. It’s not difficult to protect yourself from false claims, and protect and enjoy a younger looking face.
