Let’s be honest here – no one likes the idea of surgery. With all the potential calamities that might befall the human body, it seems more than a little extreme to expose your body to more trauma for the sake of aesthetics.
That’s why dermal fillers are here to stay. They’re a minimally invasive response to a demand which has propelled the aesthetics industry in the USA to become a billion dollar a year industry.
Every year, dermal fillers become more plentiful and more sophisticated, making them a popular cosmetic alternative to surgical facelifts. Let’s examine the new facelift: why dermal fillers are here to stay.
With patient satisfaction with these therapeutic tools capping 80%, they’re certainly worth a look.
A dizzying array of alternatives
Dermal fillers perform several functions under that heading. Some fill lines and wrinkles using naturally-occurring substances like hyaluronic acid. Others stimulate the product of collagen and elastin (which give skin its suppleness) and others dissolve fatty tissue to create a smoother appearance.
What all of them have in common is their rapid results, minimal downtime and lower cost. These are attractive attributes for people who don’t want to go under the knife and spend a lot of money and time doing it.
Food for thought
There’s a lot of debate out there about aesthetic therapies like dermal fillers. There’s more than one way of looking at them.
Some feel that the presence of these products preys on the low self-esteem and lack of confidence of people who don’t like the way they look.
At Ethos, we believe some people who seek out these treatments do suffer from such psychological factors. But we know that this is not the case for most. There’s nothing “wrong” with wanting to look your best.
There’s also nothing wrong with loving yourself exactly as you are. But here’s the thing - it’s a matter of personal choice and nobody should be judged for their choices when it comes to pursuing aesthetic enhancements.
There’s enough in life to make us feel lousy, isn’t there? The upshot is that nobody’s perfect and if you’re happy with that, then great! But if you’re not, then it’s your business.
It’s important that guests contemplating dermal fillers view them as a medically informed procedure. Medical cosmetics are, by nature, directed by doctors who understand the full implications and projected results of all procedures being offered at their facilities.
At Ethos Spa, Skin & Laser Center, our practice is governed by a board of medical professionals. That means that all we do is informed by a strong ethical framework. We don’t oversell our therapies. We engage with guests, advising them of all the implications of the treatment they’re exploring. We’ll never recommend that a guest proceed with a therapy which isn’t appropriate.
Dermal fillers are a revolutionary alternative to traditional surgical facelifts. They’re constantly evolving and becoming more accessible and effective.
