As signs of aging creep in, even though you may not be that old, you want to make sure that you are looking as young as you feel. Like many people your age, you like being young, and you want to hold on to that part of your life for as long as you can. Short of finding the fountain of youth, the way to preserve your youth and beauty is to look into the benefits of cosmetic procedures. Many of these modern cosmetic procedures are proving to give you a lot of bang for your buck. Among the products being used in many of these procedures, fillers have become a popular option. Fillers play a key role in making significant improvements in a simple way. It is because of the simplicity involved in using injectables that they have become a popular fixture in the cosmetic treatment landscape.

How Do Injectables Work?

If you have never heard of someone being treated with fillers before, the idea is really pretty straightforward. A filler is a substance that is injected under your skin to fill out the wrinkles and sunken-in areas. As the area beneath your skin is being occupied with a filler, the result achieved is that the filler provides the mass necessary to fill the space to provide significant lift. This lift helps to reduce fine lines, wrinkles, and loose skin imposed on your facial features due to gravity and time. Since the use of fillers does not require major surgery or an extensive recovery time, this lends to being a major reason why injectables are so popular today.

Fillers and BOTOX®

One of the more popular uses of these injectables is to work in conjunction with BOTOX® injections. BOTOX® is used to temporarily block the signal between the facial nerves and the muscles they signal to constrict. This signal, when it is not being blocked, causes the skin to wrinkle over the constricted muscle. By disallowing the nerves to restrict the muscles, this keeps the muscle in a relaxed state and prevents significant wrinkling in areas like the forehead. In many cases, fillers can be used in conjunction with this treatment to ensure less of a wrinkling effect.
