There are so many remedies and secrets to being healthier and happier that prolong your life, but what about looking younger living longer? Those of you that have spent thousands of dollars on anti-aging creams and masks for years, listen up because here is a solution that will work for you.

Many people believe that the only way to reverse wrinkles and sagging skin is to have some plastic surgery done, but that’s not true anymore. For several years now, there is an anti-aging solution that both, women and men have been using called dermal fillers or fillers. This is a non-surgical approach that will soften wrinkles and folds around your eyes, nose, lips, the furrows between the brows and smooth the skin on your neck.

I know what you’re thinking… “That’s only for the red carpet”, but in 2012 over 1.4 million dermal filler treatments were done in the US, which is 9% higher than in 2011. And with the recent advancement of dermal filler technology there is little to no recovery times, which means you can get this done in between the kids soccer game and their playdate!

The way dermal fillers work is that they are inserted under the skin to replace elasticity and plump up saggy skin as opposed to other options, like BOTOX, that tightens and flattens the appearance of your face. Dermal fillers are largely made of an organic substance called hyaluronic acid, which is carbohydrate that is found in connective tissues in your body. There are even filler products that jumpstart the natural production of collagen in your body, which makes the results last a great deal longer.

There are several different dermal fillers on the market; however the most popular fillers are Radiesse, Juvederm Voluma and Restylane.

Radiesse is an FDA approved dermal filler that works with your body to naturally produce collagen. It is great for lifting deep lines as it rectifies the recessions by filling them. Radiesse can also enhance cheeks, chin and add volume to your lips giving you a natural looking fulness. This filler has been known as the “lunch time” treatment because it takes about 15 minutes and lasts up to a year and a half.

Restylane is a purified hyaluronic acid that almost exactly matches the natural substance found in your body. Restylane helps restore fullness and shape to your skin by smoothing smile lines, acne scars and uneven features. The visual effects of this filler usually last longer than those from collagen.

Juvederm Voluma is an FDA approved dermal filler known to last up to 2 years, which is the longest lasting filler of all the other treatments available. Juvederm Voluma corrects lines in and around cheekbones, cheeks and chin. In conjunction with collagen and elastin, it improves your skin structure to create a smoother more natural look.

The great thing about dermal fillers like Restylane, Juvederm Voluma or Radiesse is that you can go about your day right after the treatment. There are no problems applying makeup or return to work right after the treatment is over. The treatment takes 15 to 30 minutes so this is something you can do during your lunch break.

Don’t just take my word for it, if you go to, you’ll find that 65% of people that had this treatment said it is definitely worth it. Since everyone’s body is different, please contact your local MedSpa to get a consultation for more detailed information on how dermal fillers can work for you.
