Cosmetic procedures are ever increasing these days as heightened technology is making them virtually invisible while leaving your skin smooth and more youthful in appearance. Temple fillers are also receiving a makeover of their own, resulting in less down time and reduced procedure time as well, making it the perfect time to seek treatment. The Lypo-Gold Method, taught by Elite Aesthetics Institute, is an innovative regenerative medicine that will take cosmetic surgery to a whole new level. Read on to find out more about both procedures and what they can offer you.
Basics of Fillers
Most dermal fillers contain substances like hyaluronic acid to help fill in locations of the face for a multitude of improvements, depending on the client’s preferences on what they hope to achieve in their appearance. Most dermal fillers are FDA approved for many aspects of the face, such as the chin, cheeks, lips, perioral lines, nasolabial folds, and dorsal hands, but not typically for the temple. This is usually an off-label use of the fillers for the temples and thus, you should research your physician carefully to ensure a proper use and application of the fillers. Your temples are one of the most anatomically difficult areas to inject, mostly due to the number and type of vessels in the area. Making sure you select a trained and experienced physician to perform the procedure will help ensure a smooth process.
Fillers are great for smoothing and plumping out those pesky hollow spaces on your head, most often caused by a decrease in fat from age. Fillers can help restore volume to the temple and brow areas, eliminating those hollow spots. Plumping up the skin in the temple area can also reduce wrinkles. The skin is stretching out more with the addition of a hyaluronic acid filler, and will decrease the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Similar dermal fillers, such as Poly-L-lactic, can help your body produce collagen, which can restore the fats in your temple and also reduce wrinkles while firming up your skin. In some cases, using fillers in your temples can help lift the sides of your eyes nearest to your temples, which can firm up and add volume to the skin, often reducing or eliminating “crow’s feet” and giving your eyes a slight lift.
Dermal fillers are much less invasive than plastic surgery, offering less recovery time and a faster procedure, often taking just minutes to perform while surgery requires anesthesia and a ride home. Dermal fillers are not permanent like plastic surgery, which can either be a good or bad thing depending on your needs. If the plastic surgery didn’t go as you had planned, it’s unfortunately permanent; with a dermal filler, the results will last anywhere from six months to potentially a few years, depending on the areas injected. This will require additional procedures to maintain the look you want, but if the last injection did not suffice, you now have the option to inject in different areas to achieve the look you want and then stick with it. This process can also help in getting a more specific combination and outcome for your skin’s needs, resulting in more distinct and definitive results. Typical side effects are usually mild and disappear in one to two weeks, and can include swelling, bruising, redness, pain, rash or itching near the injection sites. There are more serious side effects but these are typically very rare, but can include fillers leaking out of the injection site, growths or nodules near the injection site, blood vessel injury, fillers moving to a different area of the face, facial tissue death and loss of vision if the filler is injected into arteries that supply blood to your eyes.
A Potential New Dermal Filler
On the other hand, another cosmetic surgery that shows promising results as a dermal filler for the temple area is the Lypo-Gold Method. This procedure involves extraction of a small amount of fat from your body, usually around the thigh or belly. These fat cells are “processed” to leave behind just the adult stem cells, which are highly regenerative and can boost collagen and hyaluronic acid production in the body. These stem cells are injected into targeted areas of the face and body, such as the temples, to produce firmer, plumper and more youthful looking skin. This is a more natural process, using your own cells and not injecting new and different elements to your body, which could cause it to attack the fillers and reject them. This method is a safer and gentler option than most fillers and plastic surgery, while still leaving you with results and a minimally-invasive procedure.
