The FACIAL FILLERS are small, gel-based injections containing hyaluronic acids compounds. These are used to fill in wrinkles, increase facial volume, restore lost soft tissue, smoothen lines and wrinkles, as well as improve facial contours.
They can make you look younger and more vibrant in just 30 minutes.
What is the secret to their success?
Our bodies stop producing collagen and elastin as we age. The consensus is that collagen starts to disappear around the age of 25. That’s quite young, right? The body stops producing it at about 2% per annum. It is becoming nowadays one of the famous beauty and skincare routines.
Hyaluronic acid, which is a naturally occurring substance in the body, can be used to counteract this. It also stimulates your hyaluronic acids to produce more collagen and elastin. This improves the skin’s integrity and quality. This gives the skin a youthful, natural appearance.
Which types of materials are available?
There are many types of hyaluronic acids. They differ in their molecular types, but we refer to them according to their cross-linking. This is the size of the molecule. The greater the volume, the more cross-linked they are.
The non-crosslinked molecules don’t bind to one another, so they can flow freely and infiltrate skin because of their microscopic size. It can be applied via mesotherapy and creams. It improves skin quality and combats wrinkles by providing hydration, regeneration capability, and elasticity.
How long will they last?
The product used and the area treated will determine how long fillers last. It also depends on the individual patient. The product will last longer if it is dense and injected deeper, but this is not a rule.
Cross-linked technology is used to reduce the natural breakdown of the hyaluronic acids in the skin. The average time between 6-18 months can be expected for the lips, but it will last less than in the nasolabial wrinkles. Some fillers have a longer shelf life, but they are often limited to specific areas such as the cheeks.
Hyaluronidase, on the other hand, is an enzyme that breaks down the bonds between molecules that make up the chain of hyaluronic acids. It can be used for any patient.
What makes it different from Botox and other injectables?
Botox is 100% different. These are two different treatments and products.
Botox stops wrinkle-producing movements by preventing the muscles in the face from contracting. It freezes them. Dermal fillers, on the other hand, fill below the wrinkles to smoothen them.
It is best to place it where you are.
Don’t let the price guide you. If they offer a wrinkle-filling procedure that is significantly cheaper than the standard, they are likely doing so at the expense of the quality of the specialist. When it comes to your face, don’t take chances.
All filings must take place in a medical setting with sterilized instruments. No matter who does the treatment, it is not allowed to be done in a medical setting.
You should not use injectable fillers that come from other sources than your doctor’s office. You should ask your doctor what type of filler you will use. Don’t allow them to perform the procedure if they refuse to give you this information.
Are there any side effects?
Even non-surgical procedures can have side effects. Most side effects are redness, swelling, pain, or redness. These should disappear within two weeks.
Sometimes, bumps may occur under the skin. These can be treated with medication or injections.
Inadvertent injections of the filler into blood vessels are possible, though it is rare. If your skin becomes pale or you feel severe pain, it is a sign that your doctor should be consulted. Therefore, it is important to have an experienced doctor perform the procedure.
It is not for everyone.
Pregnant or nursing women should not apply the fillers, nor should anyone with active infections or people allergic to the filler components or lidocaine. It is often premixed.
Fillers should be used with caution by patients who have had autoimmune diseases or are immunosuppressed. Also, keloids can occur in small areas.
