Derma Fillers also known as Cosmectic Fillers help to diminish facial lines and restore volume and fullness in the face.
As we age, our faces naturally lose subcutaneous fat. The facial muscles are then working closer to the surface, so smile lines and crow's feet become more apparent.
The facial also stretches a bit, adding to this loss of facial volume. Other factors that affect the facial include sun exposure, heredity and lifestyle. Derma fillers can be used as Lip Fillers for Lip injection procedure to plump thin lips also known as lip plumping procedure or lip plumping surgery,Enhance shallow contours, Soften facial creases and wrinkles, Improve the appearance of recessed scars ,Reconstruct contour deformities in the face, Decrease or remove the shadow of the lower lids,contouring the jaw line and other areas of the face. Dermal fillers can be very helpful in those with early signs of aging, or as a value-added part of facial rejuvenation surgery.
Dermal fillers can re-inflate the face, giving it the volume it may have previously lacked. Upon birth, our bodies have a certain volume, but as time passes, it decreases. The face loses its round, feminine shape when it is lost, and wrinkles and other signs of aging appear. Dermal fillers make people look younger and more beautiful by injecting them exactly where they are needed.
The most commonly used fillers are hyaluronic acids (HAs). Since HA is a naturally occurring sugar in the body, it doesn't require animal stabilization and has fewer allergic reactions than collagen fillers. There is no species or tissue specificity in human skin. HA hydrates, volumizes, and restores contours to aging skin due to its water-attracting properties.
Based on global studies, fillers last for at least 6 months and for about a year after injection, depending on their particle size.
Treatment and Risks Invovled
The injections can be either autologous (eg. a patients own fat) or artificial.
When using artificial materials these agents attract water (hydrophilic). These agents are temporary and classically will last nine to twelve months before needing replacement. It is common for a temporary artificial filling agent to be used initially and if the patient likes the result that is achieved, then a more permanent solution (eg. using a patient’s own fat) can be done at a second stage.
The artificial agents are usually composed of hyaluronic acid. This is a safe and predictable product with reliably reproducible results. This agent can also be reversed and removed completely if required.
The treatment is fast and easy. But all wrinkle fillers have a downside, including the risk of allergic reaction and the formation of tiny bumps under the . In some cases, those bumps may be permanent. And sometimes, a bluish discoloration known as the Tyndall effect happens. The color change can last for several months, but there are treatments available.
