As people age, it is natural for their appearance to change. Over time, the accumulation of experiences and the aging process creates the appearance of wrinkles, fine lines, sagging skin, and age spots. However, there are now a variety of dermal fillers that can be used to combat the signs of age. When people come into San Diego Cosmetic Laser Clinic, they often inquire as to how many syringes of dermal filler they will need for desired results. After consulting our in house experts, we can provide some insight into the ideal amount.
What is a Filler?
A filler is an injection of a cosmetic treatment that works to smooth out the appearance of wrinkles, reduce the visibility of scars, and fight other signs of age. A filler is injected under the skin, raising or puffing up the area injected to smooth out the skin. Some types of filler include Restylane, Juvederm, and collagen.
How Does Our Face Age?
While exposure to sunshine and other environmental factors can cause wrinkles and other signs of age, there are also natural factors that lead to our face getting fine lines and wrinkles. Around the age of 30, our bodies stop naturally producing collagen. Collagen is a protein that keeps skin vibrant, puffy, and smooth. Over time, this lack of collagen can lead to sagging skin, sunken features, loss of volume, and hollow points on the face.
How Much Volume Do We Lose From Our Face Each Year?
All told, the amount of volume lost from the face starts to add up. After you turn 40, the average individual loses 1 teaspoon of volume from their face each and every year. This volume loss is cumulative, meaning each and every year the signs of aging get worse and worse.
How Many Syringes of a Filler Would I Need?
Filler injections can help fight this consistent loss of volume in the face after 40. If you actually wanted to make up for the natural volume loss of 1 teaspoon each year, you would need five syringes of filler each and every year. However, experts do not necessarily recommend this strategy. There are a lot of dermal filler options that work to both replace volume and stimulate the production of volume, meaning that not only are you adding volume to your face but also fighting future loss. There are also other treatments like fat grafting and Sculptra, that can provide excellent results in smaller doses.
