Cosmetic fillers are among the most popular cosmetic treatments performed in the US, with nearly 3 million women and men opting for filler treatments each year. At Lake Jackson Medical Spa, our team helps Texas patients look and feel their confident best with filler treatments optimized for their unique goals. Here are the top five reasons why fillers are so popular with our patients — and with men and women throughout the US.
1. There’s no downtime.
Filler treatments are performed right in our office using the most advanced techniques. Unlike surgical procedures that can take weeks or even months from which to recover, there’s zero downtime with injectable fillers. That means you can have your filler treatment in the morning and get back to your regular routines by the afternoon — or sooner. In fact, some people have filler treatments on their lunch hour, then head back to work looking refreshed and relaxed. They’re a great way to look and feel your best without the long recovery times associated with invasive surgical procedures.
2. You’ll see your results right away.
Face-lift surgery may offer dramatic results — but it can take months to see them. Sometimes, it can be a year or even longer before all the residual swelling goes away. With fillers, your results are immediately visible, as soon as any minor injection site swelling or redness disappears. And unlike face-lift surgery, there are no scars to worry about hiding or camouflaging with makeup.
3. Fillers are versatile.
Fillers are a popular option for plumping up lines and “filling in” wrinkles — but that isn’t all they can do. The right filler can smooth out scars, including unattractive acne scars, for a more flawless complexion. Plus, they’re great for restoring volume lost as a result of aging, and they can be used in multiple areas of the face, depending on the issues you’re facing. For instance, fillers in the cheek area help restore midface volume, while giving a tiny lift to your lower face, too. Under your eyes, fillers can get rid of hollows that make your eyes look tired and sunken. Lip injections can give you the flirty pout you’ve been dreaming of — and they can fill in those tiny horizontal lip lines that make your smile look older. Even better: Fillers can be used in combination with Botox® to give you the effects of a mini face-lift — without the surgery.
4. They’re long-lasting.
Depending on the filler you choose, your results can last for months — even up to two years in some cases. And when your results start to fade, you can have additional treatments to help maintain that flawless, youthful look. Plus, fillers can help boost your skin’s natural collagen production. Collagen is one of the natural building blocks of healthy, youthful skin.
As we age, we produce less collagen, and that means our skin loses some of its natural “bounce” and fullness. Filler injections can help stimulate collagen production, so your skin looks and feels smoother and more resilient over time.
5. They’ll help you feel more confident.
It isn’t always easy to exude confidence and positivity when you don’t feel great about your appearance. Filler treatments are precise, so you can “zero-in” on the problems that keep you from feeling your best, with results that are customizable and predictable. And since fillers can be used with Botox, you can treat all types of wrinkles and flaws, so you’ll appear more youthful and more energized. They’re a safe, effective way to look and feel more confident and self-assured at any age.
Are you a good candidate for fillers?
Fillers can be a great choice for just about anyone, and they aren’t just for people in their 40s and up. Plenty of people in their 30s and even their 20s have filler treatments to add some extra volume or to prevent tiny wrinkles from making an early debut. Today, there are lots of different filler choices, so your treatment can be customized for your needs and goals. At Lake Jackson Medical Spa, we offer state-of-the-art fillers using the most advanced techniques for results that look youthful and natural.
Whether you want to fill in lines, reduce the appearance of scars, or restore some of the natural plumpness your skin has lost over the years, our team can design a treatment regimen that’s right for you.
