Are Dermal Fillers Or Implants Better for Facial Augmentation?
The effects of aging vary greatly on how they change the appearance on individuals. Although there is a general decrease in the production of elastin and collagen in everybody that comes with age, how that changes the elasticity of skin and aesthetics of the face creates the need for specialized treatment.
Luckily, there is a wide variety of treatment options available that range from non-invasive and external procedures to full surgeries that can significantly change and enhance the appearance of the face. Along with how well the individual treatment reverses the targeted sign of aging, each has advantages and disadvantages.
In general, treatments that enhance or augment the shape and overall appearance of the face fall into two categories, dermal fillers, and implants. Each of these types of procedures can provide significant aesthetic improvements. Which works best depends on the issue you are trying to treat and your overall aesthetic goals.
Easier and more convenient of the two, treatments that use dermal fillers can be performed in the office setting and rarely take longer than an hour. With no recovery or downtime, they fit easily into your schedule with minimal disruption.
However, these results are temporary, and repeat treatments are needed to keep the same appearance. Despite this, dermal fillers offer the flexibility to allow the treatments to adapt as your face continues to age.
Although generally more invasive and complex procedures, dermal implants offer permanent results to enhance the appearance of your face. Although some recovery time may be needed after the treatment, depending on the specific procedure, this is relatively short compared to surgical procedures and comes with minimal risks.
