(English) Top 3 tips to make your Fillers last longer
Most of us look to fillers as a solution to lines and wrinkles and for areas which have lost volume as we age, such as our lips, cheeks and temples. Fillers are a great option to help one replace volume while enhancing your facial features. As a bonus side effect, your skin is plumper and looks more radiant thanks to ingredient used in fillers, hyaluronic acid.
Depending on the filler used, a touch up every 6 to 12 months is required to maintain the benefits – fillers aren’t permanent because they are metabolized by your body.
After spending a small fortune on fillers, it’s no surprise our next question is how can we prolong the effects of the treatment before having to head back to the doctor’s office again.
SPF all day. Every day.
In case you don’t already know, sun damage causes premature aging. Wearing sunscreen is the easiest way to keep your skin well protected and to minimize the effects of sun damage. Wearing sunscreen can also prevent certain types of fillers from breaking down more quickly, and helps in prolonging the effects of your filler.
