But a small, simple cosmetic treatment may be enough to make you look younger and perkier. If you still want to get carded at bars, dermal fillers like Restylane or Juvederm may be what you need.
What Are Dermal Fillers?
Dermal fillers are injections of hyaluronic acid, a substance naturally found in your body. The acid plumps up areas of your face where you have lost volume due to aging. Over time, the acid is harmlessly reabsorbed into your body.
Where Should I Get Dermal Fillers Injected?
If you are in your 30s, chances are you don’t have very deep wrinkles yet. So the best place to use dermal fillers is actually in your cheeks to restore lost volume. People with fuller cheeks are often called babyfaced because full, round cheeks make you look young. Dermal fillers can give you that appearance.
Fillers in your upper cheeks also have other effects. They may make your cheekbones look more defined. They may also help ease the appearance of bags beneath your eyes. Altogether, these effects make you look like you are in your 20s again.
What Should I Expect From Dermal Fillers?
During your appointment, you may receive a topical numbing cream to help ease any discomfort. Your aesthetician will then inject small amounts of filler throughout your cheek with a very small needle. She or he may make 10 or more injections.
After your appointment, your results will be immediate and last for a year or longer. If you don’t like how you look, you can receive a second injection to dissolve the hyaluronic acid quickly.
You may have temporary redness or bruising around the injection sites, but this typically goes away in a few days.
