As many people are sourcing more Holy Grail to maintain the fountain of youth, there are now more options without undergoing surgical procedures. One of which is the FDA-approved filler name dermal filler that has been used by 1 million men and women annually to revitalize their faces and improve the natural facial symmetry with immediate wrinkle improvement. Dermal fillers restore volume, correct facial lines and wrinkles, even add a little plump to the lips. Indeed, the loss of volume and fullness in faces has been the most compelling evidence with age that so many people are looking to fight with as the facial muscles work closer to the skin surface, which is why smile lines and crow’s feet become more apparent. Additionally, the facial skin also stretches a bit, adding to this loss of facial volume. Other factors which may also affect the facial skin include sun exposure, heredity, and lifestyle.

How Long Do The Results Last?
There are fillers that can only last for six months before needing a top-up, while others may last for a few years. Of course, dermal fillers will last depending on the product, the area of treatment, and the patient. Correspondingly, noninvasive procedures such as fillers are attractive because they are quick and have minimal downtime. In fact, the denser the product and the more deeply the injection, the result may last longer, even though this is not a hard and fast rule.
