Dermal Fillers

If you are ready for a makeover, but do not wish to undergo the risks and inconveniences of a cosmetic surgery, dermal fillers are just the perfect hit for you. Dermal fillers are promoted in several brands and names in the cosmetic market, they also appear on the top charts as skin fillers or liquid facelifts right after the almighty Botox injections. But the basic tenet is the same; a carefully selected combination of natural or chemical substances are injected in the soft tissues with the purpose of smoothing out wrinkles and creases, adding more volume and fullness to certain areas, or even make recessed scars disappear. Dermal fillers cost significantly less than surgical procedures, which is yet another luring feature.

What Results Can You Expect?

Dermal fillers are medically proven rejuvenation techniques that can remove the visible signs of aging. Although they cannot make very sagging skin disappear just like a facelift, with regular skin fillers you can maintain an always fresh, youthful appearance and prolong the time when you feel the need for more drastic surgical intervention. On the other hand, you need to know that skin fillers do not offer permanent solution for the aging skin, and they need repeated sessions of treatment for long lasting results.

Types of Dermal Fillers and Their Active Agents

Analogous skin fillers use your own fat harvested from your thighs or buttocks re-injected into problematic areas. It is the least commonly used technique, maybe because of the complications of a double procedure (suction and injection). When your own fat is redistributed, quite a significant amount is reabsorbed, but results are still relatively permanent.
Platelet-rich plasma therapy uses the platelets from your own blood to fill wrinkles, scars and dark, tired looking under-eye. Platelets stimulate the natural collagen production, for that reason results take their time to show. Great extra is that it is an allergen free treatment.

Collagen dermal fillers use a component naturally present in the skin injected into wrinkled or sullen areas. Collagen injections offer beautifully natural looking skin surface, but the other side of the coin is that they do not last long. To keep up the desired fullness, the procedure is best to be repeated every 5-6 months.

Hyraulonic Acid dermal fillers take the lead in popularity. Some study suggests that at the injected areas these injection may stimulate the skins own collagen production, so improvement is due to happen on the long run too. These types of skin fillers, however are strongly associated with allergic reactions.

Synthetic dermal fillers, such as calcium hydroxilapatite or polylactic acid are apt to fill deep lines that are not responsive to other skin fillers, such as frown lines or nasolabial folds. Effects are long-lasting, but you should be aware of the potential complications like:

  • allergic reactions
  • bumps
  • disfigurement
