What are the different types of dermal fillers?
A dermal filler is a soft, gel-like substance injected under the skin. Among the concerns, they can address are deep under-eye circles, lifting of cheekbones, volumizing the lips, smoothing of lip lines and nasolabial folds (creases between the sides of the nose and the corners of the mouth), and rejuvenation of hands.
Fillers are made up of a variety of substances, some of which are naturally occurring and some of which are synthetic. Hyaluronic acid (HA) is a common ingredient in dermal fillers. Our skin contains HA, which is a naturally occurring substance that keeps it hydrated and volumized. Chemically, HA fillers can last anywhere from six months to much longer before being gradually absorbed by the body. After fillers have worn off touch-up sessions can be performed to maintain the benefits long-term.
Dermal fillers and Botox both provide a wide range of cosmetic benefits but depending on what areas you wish to target one may be more appropriate than the other.
Using a fine needle, Botox is injected into the muscles which cause fine lines and wrinkles. Botulinum toxin injections relax facial muscles, making fine lines and wrinkles less visible when your facial muscles are contracted. Injections of Botox are used to treat frown lines, forehead lines, crow’s feet, excessive sweating, headaches, gummy smiles, marionette lines, bunny lines, and teeth grinding (bruxism).
It is possible to use dermal fillers to improve the jawline, fill in wrinkles, reshape your lips, increase the volume of your cheeks, and fill hollow temples using hyaluronic acid fillers. You produce hyaluronic acid in your body, which keeps your skin elastic and supple. Our bodies produce hyaluronic acid, but this process gradually decreases, causing our skin to sag and wrinkle. It is possible to restore volume loss with the injections of hyaluronic acid. Frown lines, nasolabial lines, and lips can be plumped with fillers. In most cases, the effects of fillers will last for eight to twelve months. The injected filler will be dissipated over time by our body. Depending on the person and the area to be treated, this process may vary.
The use of dermal fillers can help improve the appearance of wrinkles, fine lines, furrows, and sagging skin. Hyaluronic acid can also be restored to your skin with the use of dermal fillers. Hydrating, softening, and increasing the volume of your skin are the purposes of these injections. Your skin will look and feel younger, healthier, fuller, and tighter.
Aging is unavoidable but the visible signs of aging do not have to be. The restorative effects of dermal fillers not only leave patients looking better they feel better and more confident as well.
The market is filled with a wide variety of dermal fillers. A good choice will depend on your budget, your healthcare provider’s experience and preferences, and your individual skin characteristics-for example, how much sun damage you have or how elastic or inelastic your skin is.
By using Juvéderm, cheeks that have flattened naturally over time can regain their youthful contours. There’s also a family of Restylane products that treat a variety of, sometimes overlapping, problem areas. In addition to smoothing wrinkles and folds, Restylane can add volume to thin lips. The nasolabial folds can be treated with Radiesse if they are moderate-to-severe in nature. Aside from plumping up cheeks, it can also improve other facial contours. Various other dermal fillers are available as well. A specialist at Elite Derma will help determine which one works best for you.
