Fillers in Your 40s: The Best Face Fillers for Aging Skin

The days of having limited options for facial fillers are long gone. The aesthetic industry has many filler options, allowing you to customize your treatment and find the best face fillers for your goals.

As people reach their 40s, the volume loss in the face tends to be more pronounced. This can lead to all sorts of fine lines and wrinkles. But, even though aging can significantly change facial features, and those lines tell stories, you deserve to feel your best. That’s why, at Haus of Aesthetics, we focus on preserving your natural beauty.

Enhance what you’ve already got and add years to your appearance with dermal fillers. Plus, there’s no downtime and no need to go under the knife.

What Happens to the Skin When We Age?

Young skin has an abundance of collagen and elastin. These are proteins that allow the skin to stretch and provide structure. With time, our hormones change, and our ability to heal decreases. This leads to thinner skin and less fat, losing plumpness over time.

As we age, the skin starts to sag and wrinkle since the structural integrity is diminishing. In addition, since the skin is less plump and smooth than in the past, veins and bones are seen more distinctly.

Lifestyle habits have a large impact on how the skin ages. For example, many people who spent significant time in the sun when they were younger often have more wrinkles, dryness, and age spots. In addition, UV light can make the skin lose elasticity.

Gravity also contributes to signs of aging, as it continually pulls the skin down, causing wrinkles and sagging. As a result, eyebrows droop, jowls hang low, and there may be sunken areas on the face.

There are things you can do to help slow the signs of aging naturally, like:

Many patients choose facial fillers because there is only so much we can do on our own.

How Do Fillers Correct Common Aging Concerns?

As we lose structure in our skin, changes happen throughout the body, especially the face. Wrinkles form from repeated facial expressions. Gravitational pull brings folds that loss of elasticity cannot recover from as well. Sun damage and habits like smoking can cause permanent elastic creases. Fortunately, if you are unhappy with how your face changes with time, you have options.

Dermal fillers are highly effective at combating all types of aging concerns. Different types of fillers are useful for targeting different conditions. For example, you might choose one filler for smoothing and plumping your lips and another dermal filler injection to restore more significant volume to the cheeks. Smooth deep wrinkles, stimulate natural collagen production, and reverse the signs of aging with a facial filler treatment.

Things to Consider with Face Fillers

Every year, more than one million people choose dermal fillers to achieve a younger look without the cost or downtime of surgery. However, you should remember that face fillers are not the correct choice for everyone.

Here are some of the common reasons that we do not recommend fillers:

It’s also important to know that dermal fillers need to be appropriately used to maintain soft, full results. Again, the right aesthetic team will ensure that your treatment plan has your best interests in mind and help you to avoid overusing fillers.

When appropriately administered to good candidates, dermal fillers bring results that:

What are the Different Facial Filler Options?

From fine line correction to deep wrinkle reversal, let’s look at the ingredients and uses for the best face fillers. There are many types of dermal filler products available so that you can customize your results.

Hyaluronic Acid (HA)

As the most popular choice for wrinkle filling, hyaluronic acid is a sugar naturally found throughout the body. HA is injected under the skin to hydrate and plump the skin for temporary results.

Hyaluronic acid treatments allow patients to enjoy extra facial volume for 6-12 months. At this point, the body will gradually absorb the filler particles. Additionally, regular treatment sessions help individuals maintain their wrinkle-free complexion.

The FDA has approved the following hyaluronic acid dermal fillers:

Juvéderm® Products

Designed to eliminate fine lines and wrinkles, Juvéderm products all contain hyaluronic acid. Voluma, Volbella, and Vollure each have different amounts of HA. This allows injection specialists to be precise in their treatments.

Juvéderm products can work together or separately to target specific areas of the face.
The XC label on many Juvéderm products indicates that the injection contains lidocaine. This helps to numb the area for a more comfortable experience.

Restylane Products

Each product in the Restylane line of fillers contains a different particle size. The size differences allow our aesthetic injectors to treat various lost elasticity and volume stages.

Dermal Fillers vs Botox: What’s the Difference?

It’s important to know that fillers are meant to be a more temporary solution that you can maintain. The results you can expect are more subtle than a surgical procedure like a facelift. They are also going to be different from what you would get with Botox. Both treatments are non-invasive cosmetic injection services, but each provides unique results.

Dermal fillers correct volume loss with injections under the skin to smooth lines and fill sunken areas. Botox is a neurotoxin that impacts the nerves, temporarily weakening or paralyzing the muscles causing wrinkles.

Botox contains purified bacteria, which blocks nerve signals to freeze the muscles so facial expressions aren’t causing as many lines. Without so much movement, Botox helps to minimize existing wrinkles, soften the face, and potentially remove some wrinkles entirely.

Botox only works on wrinkles that come from muscle movement. It will not work for fine lines that come from sagging skin, nor will it address volume loss.

Individuals who want to address facial aging and restore volume to thin areas should consider dermal fillers, also known as facial fillers or soft tissue fillers. These fillers contain ingredients that enhance shallow areas and combat static wrinkles around the mouth and along the cheeks.

Do Celebrities Get Dermal Fillers?

As fillers continue to gain popularity, people are more open to speaking about their experiences. There are many celebrities who are open about their experiences with fillers:

Cindy Crawford Gets Collagen Injections

 “I’m not going to lie to myself, past a certain age, creams work on the texture of your skin but, in order to restore elasticity, all I can really count on is vitamin injections, Botox, and collagen, I have a very simple, healthy life, which works miracles. I drink a lot of water, watch what I eat, and exercise… but I owe the quality of my skin to my cosmetic surgeon.”

Katy Perry Recommends Under-Eye Filler

“I’ve done lasers and got [some type of] filler injections under my eyes for the hollowing — which I’d recommend for everyone who wants a solution for their dark circles — but all of my assets are real.”

Kaley Cuoco Says to Get Facial Fillers for Yourself, Not Anyone Else

“Recently, I had a filler in a line in my neck I’ve had since I was 12. As much as you want to love your inner self… I’m sorry, you also want to look good. I don’t think you should do it for a man or anyone else, but if it makes you feel confident, that’s amazing.”

Kelly Ripa Appreciates Facial Fillers in Your 40s

“As I describe in the book, being open and honest about cosmetic procedures, I’ve always done on the show. I’ve always talked about it open and honestly because I thought, really honestly, at 40 years old that I was the only person aging and I couldn’t figure out why. I’m not saying you should let people bully you into [doing cosmetic surgery] or procedures. These are my choices for me.”

Joe Jonas Values Subtle Enhancements of Dermal Fillers

 “I liked that it relieved the area a little bit and I was like, ‘OK, this is great,’ without it being too much for my liking,” he said. “I appreciated that it wasn’t over the top. It’s very light.”
