Facial fillers are becoming increasingly popular as a non-surgical treatment option for facial rejuvenation. But, what are the long-term effects of these injectables? In this article, we'll explore the potential risks and side effects associated with facial fillers, and how to minimize them. When used correctly, facial fillers can help reduce the most common signs of aging, such as wrinkles and skin folds. However, there are potential side effects that come with these treatments.
These can include localized pain, swelling, redness and bruising at the injection site. In rare cases, injections have caused double vision, dry eyes, or difficulty swallowing or breathing. Long-acting dermal fillers have higher rates of complications, such as infections and nodules. Side effects reported in clinical trials include facial weakness, drooping of the eyelids and drooping of the eyebrows.
Injection of botulinum toxin products for cosmetic purposes is not recommended for use during pregnancy or breastfeeding. Excessive use of dermal fillers can lead to filler fatigue, causing the skin to stretch and clump in the folds of the skin. This can end up aging the skin even more. With each injection of filler, the skin becomes more drooping and deformed.
The filler can stretch skin tissue more in older patients than in younger patients with healthy and elastic skin. Facial muscles also decrease in volume and elasticity, and the deflation and movement of facial fat further accentuate the signs of aging. Long-term solutions are available to improve the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles that are safer and longer lasting. Chemically modified hyaluronic acid dermal fillers have gained wide acceptance as a “redefinition of dermal fillers” in the fields of dermatology and cosmetic facial surgery.The overall incidence of long-term adverse reactions secondary to dermal injection of hyaluronic acid dermal fillers is believed to be low, with the vast majority representing a chronic inflammatory reaction related to foreign bodies.
Patients should be informed of the potential risk of foreign body reactions to these injectable agents.Recent studies indicate that repeated and prolonged use of deep tissue facial fillers can cause permanent damage or damage to the lymphatic system of the face. All or some of these side effects will be minimized if the procedure is performed by an experienced aesthetic professional.In conclusion, facial fillers can be a great way to reduce signs of aging without surgery. However, it's important to be aware of potential side effects and risks associated with these treatments. Be sure to consult with an experienced aesthetic professional before undergoing any injectable treatments.
