Dermal fillers are ideal for use in lips, on the chin, cheeks, and hands. They can be used to rid the face of acne scars as well as help fix the signs of aging. Providing skin with a younger looking appearance is their most popular use.
What are Dermal Fillers?
These are substances that are derived synthetically or naturally. They are injected into the skin to achieve youthful looking results. These fillers go by the brand names Restylane, Juvederm, Radiesse and Belotero among others.
Some fillers are made from naturally occurring sugar complexes in the body. Others, which are made synthetically, last longer than the natural fillers. These are called semi-permanent fillers because they last about a year before their effects dissipate.
Some people consider them to be permanent anyway because they feel that the wrinkles on a person’s face which occur naturally cause the filler’s effects to dissipate but the filler itself does not fail.
Natural fillers like hyaluronic acid have the benefit of causing fewer allergic reactions than synthetic fillers. Their effects can last as little as three months or as long as two years. These fillers do dissipate and require being reinjected for a person to maintain the anti-aging results they want. Whichever dermal fillers are used they have to be injected directly into the area of the skin where the anti-aging effects are desired.
How to Get Dermal Fillers
These fillers can only be obtained at plastic surgeon offices or skin clinics. They are injected into the folds of the skin to plump the areas around it up to rid the area of wrinkles. An anesthetic may be applied to the skin first to numb any discomfort from the injections. Treatment can take about 20 minutes.
Dermal fillers are not the same thing as Botox. Botox is used to get rid of the muscle movements that cause wrinkles. These injections do not plump or smooth out the skin like dermal fillers do. A person may elect to have both Botox injections as well as dermal fillers at the same time.
Anyone who gets dermal filler injections will have to plan on returning to get more injections within a year. Sometimes the effects last longer, but in general areas with thin skin like lips will need to be redone in a year or less.
Good morning girls, I hope you’re enjoying the challenge so far. If you’re following me on Instagram you would have seen this week, that I’ve been speaking a lot about balance. Anyone that knows me really well knows this is something that I preach, and preach, and preach. I find that most girls are really good on a Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, maybe Thursday. When Friday and the weekend hits, it’s all out the window. Once they have one thing that’s not necessarily clean or healthy, they go oh stuff it out the window. I have to wait till Monday and start again. This is like a vicious cycle and you’re never going to get the results, because those 3 days of intense binging, most likely will take out all the hard work, you’ve done during the week.
You’re paying money and you’re doing that for a reason, because you got goals that you want to achieve. So you need to keep that in focus. Now I also find girls not only do this on a weekly basis, but on a daily basis. So before girls educated, and if you’re listening to your trainers you’ll learn otherwise. But I found in my experience that a lot of girls think that, they’re being good at the start of the day, by not having breakfast. Or having breakfast with just egg whites, no carbohydrates, and no healthy fats, and basically no fuel and calories and energy, to get you through the day. And it gets to lunch time they skip their snack, and it gets to lunch time oh I’m going to be so good and just have a salad. That’s got lettuce, tomato, and cucumber. Hardly any nutrients, hardly any energy. Once again no carbohydrates, protein or healthy fats.
So then it gets to 3:30 which I call the3:30 itis and you want to devour anything that comes in your sight. You don’t care because you’re just so hungry. I’ve been there, I’ve done that and obviously that’s not the way to go. I’ve never, ever, ever, advice girls to cut out carbohydrates. I don’t care what media has said about me, what dieticians in Australia has said about me, that I told girls to cut food groups. Anyone that’s had my plans and study one, I’ve never said to cut carbohydrates out. And I still to this day will never, because I believe that we need it for fuel. It’s about having the right carbohydrates at the right times. If you’re training lots even 3 times a week, you’re going to need your carbs. You’re going to need nutrients, and meals and snacks. Don’t think that less is going to get you results.
Ashy Bines: Avoid Burn Out
It’s going to burn you out, and you’re going to end up being so tired and burnt out, that you’re going to have no motivational energy to even get training. So my advice to create that balance is to create a balance, every day of the week. I did a post about this last night and had some inspirations from a post that I ended, one of our go now managers. I like to add little things in my day that make me feel like I’m not ever missing out. Whether that’s a sprinkle of cheese on my salads or a squirt of sauce or a clean dessert from my new recipe book which is so delicious. We really try to make them high protein and low calories, so that you can have them more often.
So definitely try to incorporate good things that make you feel like you’re not missing out. You’re going to create that 80/20 rule so when it gets to Friday, you’re not completely blown out and undo all your hard work. I know you’re trying so hard at these sessions. I’m starting my new forums. Facebook has actually blocked my personal account from commenting. All I can do is post status at the moment, so that’s why I haven’t been in there commenting much. But I think I’ve got another 2 weeks and I’ll get that back. So once I get that back, I’ll be in there commenting, liking, getting involved because I love it. But I am in there; I’m watching everything you’re doing. I’m loving the food post.
You girls seem to be really embracing everything that the challenge is about. You know the more you embrace what it’s all about, I promise you the better result you’re going to get. So remember create that balance and remember you’re trainers are here to help you. Communication is key. We’re not mind readers. We don’t know if you’re struggling with something, or if you’re bored with the food. Or you’re not fining the energy and motivation to get up. You need to communicate that with us. Text your trainer, give them a call, post on the forum. We’re here for you the whole way. Use us as much as you can, so you can get the most out of your challenge. So that’s my advice for this week. So I hope you’ve enjoyed that, and that can help you girls realize less isn’t always more. The aim is to try and create that balance, 80/20 is the way girls. So thanks for listening, and I will be posting another video next week. So enjoy the rest of your week, and I’ll speak to your real soon.
