6 Reasons Why Fillers Are Worth the Investment

Dermal fillers have revolutionized the beauty industry. Now you don’t have to invest in major surgery to lift and smooth your face. You don’t even have to wait until your face “falls.”

With annual or biannual trips to your dermatologist, you can transform and rejuvenate your face and confidence with dermal fillers.

Today’s fillers are formulated to address a variety of issues that come with aging and loss of facial volume due to diminishing fat, collagen, elastin, and hyaluronic acid (HA).

At The Center for Dermatology Cosmetic & Laser Surgery in Mount Kisco, New York, our skilled dermatologists recommend fillers whether you’re looking to transform a few problem areas or completely rejuvenate your face. Fillers are versatile, safe, and long-lasting.

Are fillers worth the investment in time and money? Following are six reasons why they are. 

1. Fillers treat your whole face

You may be surprised and disappointed when you look into a face-lift. Whether you opt for a mini-lift or a full face-lift, the surgery only treats your midface or jowl area. Usually, your surgeon also recommends a neck lift so your face and decolletage match.

But a face-lift leaves the upper half of your face untouched. If you want to lift drooping eyelids or a saggy forehead, you must book other surgeries.

In contrast, fillers can treat your whole face. Fillers and neurotoxins can smooth out lines on the forehead and around the eyes and add volume to your entire facial area. 

Depending on the type of fine line, wrinkle, or crease you have, we select a dermal filler formulated to restore the missing volume.

2. Fillers work instantly 

You don’t have to wait months to see results with fillers. You leave our office looking fresher, younger, and more lifted than you did when you entered.

While you may have some tenderness or redness around the injection areas for a day or two, you don’t need a recovery period. In most cases, you can leave your filler treatment and go back to your usual routine.

3. Fillers go where face-lifts can’t

A face-lift may take decades off your face, but your now-youthful face won’t match your hands. Like your neck, the skin on your hands is delicate and isn’t well attached to muscle, leaving it prone to looseness and loss of elasticity.

We can help your face and hands match with Radiesse®, an injectable gel that plumps the skin in your hands and helps it produce new collagen. Fillers can also transform your face by enhancing and building up cheekbones for a more elegant, lifted look.

4. Fillers enhance eyes and lips

Your eyes are the first place people look, followed by your lips. Eyes and lips are so expressive they can convey emotions with a glance.

However, if your lips have thinned due to aging or your eyes are marred by deep troughs underneath that make you look tired, you may not convey the energy and excitement about life that you truly feel. Restylane® Eyelight fills in eye troughs to bring your peepers back to life.

We have a number of fillers to enhance your lips. You can choose a subtle improvement with a filler such as Volbella® by Juvéderm®. Or you can go for a full-on sexy pout with thicker fillers. We can also even out your lips or fix asymmetries that detract from your natural beauty.

5. Fillers make you glow

A new filler called SkinVive™, by Juvéderm, does more than restore HA and volume to your skin. It makes your skin glow with youth and vibrancy.

If you feel frustrated with a dull complexion that lacks luster and life, SkinVive lets you shine again. SkinVive also helps your skin stay hydrated so your glow isn’t just superficial; it improves the health of your skin.

6. Fillers last a long time

Depending on the type of fillers you need, you may not require a touch-up for over a year. We create a follow-up schedule for you based on your fillers and areas treated. We always send you a reminder so you don’t have to worry about the beautiful effects of your treatment wearing off.
