Body sculpting is far more than a fad marketed to people that link

self esteem with image. The term “body sculpting” refers to a number of well researched procedures that shape the body to look leaner as well as more toned. These procedures range from from office visit, non-invasive techniques to body wraps, injections and surgeries.

Dermal fillers are an example. As we age, our faces naturally lose subcutaneous fat which results in the facial muscles being closer to the skin surface. Facial skin condition is also affected by heredity, life style choices such as smoking, and exposure to the sun. So, there is a loss of facial volume and skin stretching. Dermal filler procedures can enhance shallow contours as well as soften facial creases and wrinkles, decrease the shadow under eyes, and improve the appearance of scars.

Dermal filler procedures should not be confused with Botox. Dermal fillers are either a naturally-derived or synthetic material injected into the skin. In general the positive effects from six to eighteen months, and permanent fillers can last up to five years. Botox stops or lessens facial muscle movement. For more dramatic age reversal affects, some people will choose treatments of both Botox and dermal fillers. Hyaluronic acid is used as the primary natural filler, and it has a very small risk of causing a mild allergic reaction. The primary issue associated with this procedure is longevity. As with any medical procedure, cosmetic or surgical, it always important to discuss options as well as risks with a dermatologist specialist. At Glam RN, we offer free consultations.
