Do Fillers Make You Age Faster?

Fillers are a great option for those seeking a softer, more youthful look. However, if used incorrectly or overused, fillers can have long-term negative consequences. In fact, patients who do not use the filler correctly could end up accelerating the aging process of their skin, resulting in an older-looking complexion. Despite this, there is no evidence that having fillers actually speeds up skin aging.Fillers are likely to stimulate the formation of your own collagen and improve skin elasticity.

It is important to ensure that the filler has completely disappeared, as it may not always disintegrate fully. When too much filler is placed in one area, it can cause sagging as the excess has to go somewhere. Depending on the type of filler used, results can last up to a year or two.Over time, fillers can stretch the tissues under the skin, which can speed up the aging process. This is because these tissues will not bounce back in the same way as you age.

Additionally, when too much filler is used, it can accumulate on the body and migrate out of the target area, leading to sagging and distortion. Hyaluronic acid fillers were originally intended to give some facial fullness to those who had lost volume due to extreme weight loss, drug use or illness.Essentially, when filler is overused, it stretches and weighs down the skin, meaning more filler is needed with each visit to the doctor. This further stretches the skin and tissue. HA fillers last up to 18 months and when dissolved can leave some collateral damage in the form of an inflammatory reaction to the filling and capsule formation.

Belotero has little tendency to generate an unwanted bluish Tyndall effect that can be seen when fillers such as Restylane are injected superficially into delicate tissues around the eyes. Radiesse is a whitish filler that helps lighten dark circles.Influencers like Kylie Jenner have helped make Facial Fillers more popular than ever before. However, it takes months or years for the filler to dissolve (and sometimes it doesn't dissolve at all) and if you keep getting more injections, you just fill your face with more gel.
