CAN DERMAL FILLERS HELP WITH AGING AFTER WEIGHT LOSS?

The early signs of aging, such as fine lines and wrinkles, being to appear around your mid-thirties. In most cases, the signs are subtle, but there are a few situations that can cause wrinkles to become severe quickly, and the biggest one is weight loss.

One of the benefits of carrying a little more weight is that the volume in your face smooths out the wrinkles and makes them less noticeable. After losing a significant amount of weight, however, the skin loses this volume and elasticity, causing a sallow, wrinkled appearance.

Fortunately, dermal fillers offer a solution for the appearance of wrinkles after weight loss. Learn more about how dermal fillers can help you erase your fine lines, wrinkles and crow’s feet to restore that beautiful glow.

Dermal Fillers After Weight Loss

Dermal fillers are used to add volume to the skin and create a smoother, more even appearance. These cosmetic injectables use hyaluronic acid or a proprietary solution to fill the soft tissues of the face and smooth out wrinkles or fine lines. Fillers can also stimulate collagen renewal, which helps your body produce its own collagen to fight the effects of aging and promote healthier, more beautiful skin. Dermal fillers include such brands as Radiesse, Sculptra, Restylane and Juvederm, all designed with different goals in mind.

Because dermal fillers are safe and minimally-invasive, they are the perfect choice to minimize the appearance of wrinkles that show up after weight and volume loss. Dermal fillers can also restore the attractive contours of the face that may have been lost, such as the jawline and the cheekbones, for a revitalized look and more youthful features.

Does Weight Loss Affect Dermal Fillers?

The effect of weight loss on dermal fillers can vary, which is why many doctors may tell you to hold off on dermal fillers until you’ve reached your target weight. There are some areas of the face that can have dermal fillers before weight loss, however, such as around the eyes and near the corners of the mouth.  These areas won’t be as affected from dramatic volume loss.

Dermal fillers are designed to stay where they are injected, but the lost volume with weight loss can affect the desired look. Because of this, you may need additional injections as a touch-up after reaching your goal weight.

Generally, it’s best to wait until you’ve lost weight to get dermal fillers so that your doctor can determine the best treatment plan for your goals and problem areas.
