Do Fillers Stretch Out Your Skin?

Do Fillers Stretch Out Your Skin?

If you are getting weary of wrinkles and other signs of age on your face, then you may want to opt for a filler injection. Fillers help to reduce wrinkles and fine lines while simultaneously giving aging skin youthful volume, helping you to look your best. However, some patients at Siti Med Spa in San Diego have recently been concerned that fillers such as Juvederm or Restylane may permanently stretch out their skin, so we have to clear up some misconceptions.

Patient’s Concerns About Fillers

First, let’s outline the concern patients are expressing. Restylane and Juvederm fillers are injected into your face or a different area of the body, adding volume to your face. Patients are afraid that once the filler wears off, the skin will sag because the volume added may have stretched the skin out. This could possibly lead to additional wrinkles and sagging skin that will leave you looking worse than when you first came in for fillers.

Do Fillers Stretch Out Your Skin?

When a filler is injected, it does stretch the skin slightly, filling out sagging skin and tissues that have been weakened over time. However, in most cases, after the filler fades away the skin will recover and revert to the way it looks when you came in. In some situations, depending on the type of treatment, your skin will look even better! For some fillers, such as Restylane, a big part of the procedure is working to stimulate the production of collagen in your skin.

Collagen Production From Filler Injections

Some fillers lead to an increase in the body’s natural production of collagen, which will have a positive impact long after the filler has faded away. Collagen is a protein that improves the elasticity and hydration of your skin, along with fighting wrinkles and other signs of age. By increasing your collagen levels, these fillers can see your skin looking better for years after your initial injection.  

Fillers Will Not Stretch Out Your Skin

No matter what you hear, a majority of the time fillers will have no kind of lasting effect on your skin. You will not require more filler in the future for the same results, and your skin will not sag more because you opted for the fillers. However, if you have these questions or concerns, make sure to voice them to your physician so they can fully inform you of any risks.
