Do Fillers Age You? The Honest Truth!


Do Fillers Age You? The Honest Truth!

Technically it is possible for fillers to “age” you if the injections are not done properly. However this is subjective to what you view aging to mean.

Obviously injectables such as fillers do not literally add years to your age, however many people wonder if it depletes the youthfulness in the skin at a faster rate.

Dermal fillers or injectables, are safe substances that are injected beneath the skin’s surface to fill out areas of the face where one might want more volume. This can include wrinkles around the face. Fillers are also used to add volume to different areas of the face such as the lips, cheeks, temples, and more.

The most commonly type of filler used are dissolvable and typically remain in the body for 6 months to a year before the body’s natural enzymes break the filler down and dissolve it.

Facial fillers should only be injected and administered by licensed professionals. The results from facial filler are immediate and the only recovery needed is from possible bruising and swelling at the injection sites.

Generally, dissolvable fillers are safe for the body. However, permanent fillers, such as silicone fillers, can be unsafe and rejected by the body. However dissolvable fillers, otherwise known as hyaluronic acid filler, can also be unsafe if received from an unreliable source. Receiving filler from a licensed professional is essential to ensure a small chance of complication.

Using any filler that is unsafe or not FDA-approved can lead to complications and irritation to the skin and facial tissue. In extreme cases, this can lead to irreversible to damage of the skin and tissue, disrupting the collagen production and elasticity of the skin. This disturbance to the skin can ultimately “age” a person if the damage is irreversible.

When injecting facial fillers, it is important that your provider does not over-inject any area of the face. This can lead to stretching of the skin and loss of the natural elasticity of the skin. Sometimes, if too much filler is injected in the face over years of time, if the filler is ever removed or dissolved, the skin is unable to revert back to its original forms. This can potentially leave the skin looser and less firm that before filler was injected, ultimately leading to premature aging of the skin.

Additionally, adding too much volume to certain areas of the face, with filler, can sometimes make someone’s face look older. This is especially the case if the injector does not balance out the volume of the entire face. For example, If someone receives filler in their upper cheek area to attain more defined and higher cheek bones, this can cause the temples and and lower cheek regions to look unbalanced and too hollow.

Without this balance, other areas of the face can look sunken in, when they are in fact not. This can often lead to the person’s face to look older or more aged. It is very important when your provider is injecting your face with filler, that your entire facial anatomy is taken into account in order to provide for a natural and balanced effect.

Although it is possible for filler to “age” you it is very unlikely if the procedure is done by a trained professional.
