We all want to be happy with what we see in the mirror. But for a lot of people, the “perfect” body seems far too unattainable, even with proper diet and regular exercise. But no matter what your personal taste is as far as what constitutes the perfect body, there are more options than ever before for cosmetic body contouring without having to undergo surgery.
Cosmetic body contouring can be categorized into two types of treatments – ones that reduce unwanted fat and ones that add volume. The latter of these, namely injectable body contouring, can enhance certain areas of the body to provide a more youthful and attractive appearance. Though most people associate body contouring with treatments designed to reduce the appearance of excess fat, more and more people are realizing the benefits of treatments that actually restore or add volume.
Dermal fillers, in particular, are a great way to enhance natural curves by adding volume to specific areas of your body that you may be unhappy with. The appealing benefits of no downtime and a lower risk of infection and scarring have a lot of people eyeballing this popular method to take their look to the next level. This treatment is an attractive option for people who desire volume restoration or augmentation with predictable, long-lasting results.
How does body contouring with injectable filler work?
Injectable body contouring treatments utilize strategically placed fillers to enhance volume and shape a desired area. Filler is carefully injected into the dermis by a trained medical aesthetic professional. The result is a gradual improvement of volume in the area, adding a bit of plumpness and creating a smoothing effect in the skin.
But not all fillers are created equal. Some fillers are intended to add almost immediate volume, while others, particularly Sculptra® and hyperdiluted Radiesse®, not only add volume but stimulate your body’s own collagen production. That revved up collagen paves the way for tighter, smoother, younger-looking skin that’ll have you beaming from ear to ear!
When will I notice results from injectable body contouring and how long will they last?
Though most people see immediate volumizing results from injections, it usually takes several weeks to see the full effect. Most patients enjoy their results for 2-3 years.
Which areas of the body are best treated with injectable body contouring?
At Moksha Aesthetics, we specialize in injectable body contouring in the following areas:
- Decolletage (neck and chest) – Filler is injected in this area to help stimulate collagen and strengthen the skin.
- Cellulite on the legs – Filler is strategically injected into areas of the legs to diminish the appearance of cellulite, resulting in a smoother, firmer appearance.
- Butt Lift (BBL) – The injection of filler helps stimulate collagen in the butt, allowing your body to create its own volume and leaving you with a booty you’ll be proud of.
