Stay Away from the Possibility of an Earlobe Repair

Just because you have a piercing does not mean that you can put anything and everything through that hole. This often results to earlobe tears and stretching that can be unpleasant to look at and can be a source of a fashion faux pas. This does not only affect women as men experience earlobe issues as well. While an earlobe tear can already be repaired through surgery, it is always better to prevent this from happening in the first place.

Avoid heavy earrings.  

Some people think that their ears are strong enough to handle really heavy earrings, so they wear one. This is a common cause of earlobe stretching and can even lead to tearing of the earlobes. You can occasionally wear dangling earrings, but don’t do so all the time. There are stud or small hoop earrings that you can wear during casual days instead. This way, your ears may not experience too much pressure from the accessories that you wear.

Avoid piercing the ears too low.  

When you are planning to get your ears pierced, make sure the hole is not situated too low in the earlobe. The earring can get more support if more of your earlobe is below your piercing. If you have already made this mistake, the only thing you can do is to avoid any pressure on your earlobes by wearing light earrings. Who says dangling ones are the only accessories fashionable enough to show off?

That is to say, avoid dangling earrings.  

Dangling earrings are common culprits for earlobe tears as they are the ones that are prone to getting caught up with clothing and other materials. Moreover, never ever wear hanging ones especially if you are handling babies or young kids as dangling earrings could easily grab their attention, which will get them to literally grab those ear accessories.

Getting to Know Your Dermal Fillers

There are different types of dermal fillers, and it could be difficult to grasp every detail about them in an instant. The only real thing to note is that dermal fillers are generally a great way to bring back the youthfulness of the skin. When injected directly into the skin, dermal fillers can improve the fine lines and wrinkles on the forehead, around the eyes, lips, mouth and other corners of the face. Furthermore, dermal fillers can effectively reduce acne scars and add more volume to a dry, lifeless face.

The Wonders Hyaluronic Acid Can Bring

Hyaluronic acid is a main component of dermal fillers. This substance is naturally produced by the body and is responsible for putting volume to the skin. However, due to aging and other contributing factors, the body already finds it difficult to produce an adequate amount of hyaluronic acid. This results to the appearance of wrinkles and lines on the face.

This is where hyaluronic acid dermal fillers enter the picture. By integrating this substance in dermal fillers, the skin is ridded of wrinkles and any sagging is plumped up. What’s more is that since this is a natural substance produced by the body, dermal fillers are safe to use for the treatment of different side effects of aging. The body eventually absorbs these hyaluronic-based fillers in about six to nine months, which is why follow-up sessions can help patients enhance and extend the results.
