It seems as if no matter what magazine or newspaper is thumbed through, there will be stories about celebrities getting injections, or phenomenal ads about dermal fillers to either plump up lips or smooth out the forehead. Part of the reason why dermal fillers are on the rise is due to the popular trend of younger patients opting to have fillers more than ever before.

In years past, once a person reached 45 – 50 years, they’d naturally start to notice a few lines, wrinkles, and other signs of aging. At the same time, many patients back then simply accepted these signs as a part of aging.

However, in today’s world, there is a certain fashion trend associated with looking younger. And though some people today can naturally go with the flow and embrace the signs that indicate coming of age, there are others who will do whatever is necessary to turn back the hands of time and keep their appearance as youthful as possible. The great news is, regardless of what people choose, there is technology available to not only help us live healthier and longer lives, but also to help keep us looking as young as we feel.

Part of today’s craze with dermal fillers is that the Baby Boomer generation and younger use fillers to enhance and soften their facial features. Though risks are very minimal when injections are performed professionally, most patients experience positive results and view fillers much safer and cost-effective compared to traditional cosmetic surgery, though not as lasting. Benefits include- less recovery time, faster results, less cost, and ultimately results in a very natural looking facial enhancement. Quality filler injections can last anywhere from four to nine months, allowing patients to put off traditional surgery if they choose, sometimes for many years.
