Voluma Dermal Fillers Take Years Off Your Face

Voluma Dermal Filler

Dermal fillers
given by injection can provide a more youthful look for much less than what a traditional facelift may cost. Many can fill lines and wrinkles in 30 minutes or less with results that may last from a few months to over a year.

Botox injections relax the muscle underneath a wrinkle and fillers fill the area with one of many substances, making the line or crease nearly disappear. Wrinkle fillers can be used to plump or lift cheeks, jawlines and temples.  They can also fill out thinner lips and plump up sagging areas on the hands.

Treatments using fillers is quick, and relatively easy. 

There are risks such as people having an allergic reaction, appearance of permanent bumps under the skin, and occasionally a skin discoloration which is call the Tyndall effect.  If not used properly, fillers may cause skin cells to die.   Fillers touted as long lasting are the ones that seem to have the most side effects.
