What are Dermal fillers and Types of Dermal fillers?by Sujith Ram drmaryamzamani
If you're looking for a non-surgical facelift or just want to smooth out some fine lines or fill in deep wrinkles, injectables are for you. Millions of people use dermal fillers to achieve a smoother, more relaxed facial appearance while still allowing freedom of expression.
Dermal fillers are used to temporarily improve volume loss, improve skin laxity, and improve facial contours. A selection of dermal fillers can be meticulously injected to smooth tears, contour cheeks, refresh lips and contour the jawline to help harmonize the face and restore volume for natural-looking results. Treatments can be used on the face, neck, chest, hands, and body.
FDA-approved cosmetic fillers are minimally invasive and very safe. As with any procedure, there are potential risks, the most common being post-procedure bruising, and swelling, which are usually minimal and resolve quickly.
Social Downtime for the dermal fillers is 24-72 hours (potential for bruising) and results are seen within 1-2 weeks with results lasting 6-18 months.
Types of Dermal Fillers
Safe FDA-approved products include hyaluronic acid, polymethyl methacrylate, poly-L-lactic acid, calcium hydroxyapatite, or a person's own body fat. The doctor will work with each person and recommend the most suitable one based on the person's skin type, age, and other factors, also considering the effect the person wants to achieve.
Hyaluronic acid is a natural component of the skin's connective tissue. Its safety and efficacy have made it the most common filler used in facial cosmetic procedures. Hyaluronic acid injections can smooth fine lines and creases and restore fullness to the skin.
The difference between hyaluronic acid products is the size of the particles, which are designed to treat different depths of wrinkles: smaller particles for fine lines and larger particles for deeper wrinkles and folds.
Calcium hydroxyapatite treats deeper wrinkles and skin folds. It can help the doctor contour the jawline and restore volume in and around the cheeks. These injections can last up to three years when used to fill wrinkles and up to a year when used for contouring.
Originally developed to treat severe facial wasting in HIV infection, this treatment is now FDA-approved to treat facial aging. This type of injection lasts up to 2 years.
