Weight Loss and Signs of Aging: Can Dermal Fillers Help?
Weight loss and aging can make the skin sag because it loses its elasticity, turns sallow, becomes dehydrated, and gets wrinkled. Fortunately, dermal fillers can help manage this challenge. But most people don’t consider the treatment because they’re afraid of what might happen if they lose more weight. Tula Wellness & Aesthetics wants you to make informed decisions.
Managing Loose Skin After Weight Loss
Managing loose skin caused by weight loss largely depends on the amount lost. For example, dermal fillers are perfect for people who have lost a small amount of weight. But if you have lost a significant amount, fillers may be used with other treatments.
The fillers help by adding volume and making the skin smoother. The treatment also reduces the effects of fine lines, resulting in skin rejuvenation. This explains why most people prefer using fillers after attaining a stable weight. Additionally, the treatment sometimes stimulates collagen production, which boosts skin elasticity and strength.
The Effect of Losing More Weight
The effects of weight loss on fillers vary from one person to another. This is why professionals often advise patients to wait until they’re closer to or have attained their ideal weight to receive the treatment. However, you can still receive the treatment on some areas like your face even before attaining a stable weight. If you lose more weight, a touch-up treatment can help.
Benefits of Dermal Fillers
Quick and Easy
Fillers are relatively quick and easy to administer. You can schedule the treatment during a break and resume work or your daily activities afterward. The results are also relatively immediate. You will start noticing your skin becoming smoother and more youthful. And it will get better with time.
You can modify your treatment whenever you have a session. For example, if you notice loose skin or you want to increase your facial volume, we can always customize the treatment to target a specific location. This is also beneficial if you lose more weight.
Other benefits include:
- Little or no downtime
- Immediate results
- Excellent safety record
