A growing number of women are agreeing that minimally invasive injections such as facial fillers are essential to stay competitive in the workplace, citing a pressure to maintain a youthful and healthy look. Instead of opting for surgery however, many middle-aged professional women simply choose procedures that give them a vibrant appearance or prevent further signs of aging. Injections and facial fillers are popular treatment options because the focus is on looking healthy rather than eliminating all wrinkles or skin sagging.
Juvederm and Radiesse
Juvederm injectible gel is a hyaluronic acid dermal filler that is approved by the FDA to last for up to a year after treatment. It is created using a distinctive manufacturing process that delivers a high concentration of cross-linked hyaluronic acid for improved results. Juvederm is used to improve moderate to severe facial wrinkles.
In the United States, Radiesse dermal filler is approved to also treat moderate to severe wrinkles as well as restore fullness to the face that is lost in patients with facial aging. For many patients, Radiesse treatments last at least one year or longer. Radiesse injections tend to hold their shape or lift tissues longer than other filler materials.
After the Procedure
Results from injectable dermal fillers are seen right away. There can be mild swelling or bruising, temporary redness/numbness, or an over-filled appearance, but these conditions can typically be eliminated easily. Topical icing should be able to improve these side effects within a few hours or days.
