What Are Dermal Fillers?
Dermal fillers is a non-surgery method of smoothing out wrinkles, correction of shapes, volumes and contours of your face. This way it is possible to correct almost everything: remove facial wrinkles and folds, change the shape or volume of your lips, improve the oval of your face and even change the shape of your nose, cheekbone area or chin.
The biggest pros of facial injections is minimal traumatic effect and quick results. The procedure doesn’t require much time for preparation and rehabilitation when compared with surgery and currently reached the level when it can delay the need for surgery for many years to come.
The main task of dermal fillers is to restore the volume where you have wrinkles.
The face can be associated with canvas as a whole structure. Sometimes, if there is a deep nasolabial fold, it could be more effective to increase the volume of cheekbones and chin, so that no need to fix and fill up the fold itself. The best result is achieved when correcting the cause, not the problem by taking into account your age, face structure and individual features.
For younger people there is a face beautification service to improve the look of your appearance in the most natural way by keeping the right proportions of your face.
During procedure there are mainly 4 types of products that can be used for facial injections based on collagen, polishing acid, hyaluronic acid and calcium hydroxyapatite. Collagen products contain some biological substances and therefore can cause allergic reactions.
Fillers with polymer acid contain polymer gel of non-animal origin. Such injections promote regeneration of own collagen on the spot of injection.
Which Dermal Fillers are the Best ?
However, the most popular fillers are hyaluronic acid based. Hyaluronic acid is a substance that is a part of our skin and promotes tissue regeneration. If you want to moisturize your skin for a long time – use hyaluronic acid. Unlike other products, it doesn’t bleach or exfoliate your skin. But it’s one molecule can attract and hold up to 1000 molecules of water.
In this connection there are 2 types of it – high molecular (it’s a moisture resource for upper skin layer) and low molecular (penetrates to all skin layers).
When we age, the amount of hyaluronic acid is getting smaller, the skin becomes drier and loses the tone, that’s why to restore it’s resources is possible with dermal filler injections based on hyaluronic acid which can be mono-phase and bi-phase.
Juvederm is a mono-phase product, which means that all particles are of the same size and are being distributed evenly under the skin. They are very plastic, well modeled and look really natural.
Bi-phase product such as Restylane is more solid. It never migrates in the tissue by itself and holds the volume very well. It’s important to use the product that is certified and well tested.
How Long Do Fillers Last ?
It’s impossible to say definitely how long this or that product will perform the function which it was used for. As a rule, a visible result of most dermal fillers lasts for 6 months-1.5 years , it also depends on your lifestyle and medications you take after injections.
