Know what injectable fillers are
Injectable or dermal fillers are gel-like substances injected beneath your skin to restore lost volume, smooth lines, and soften creases or enhance facial contours. While both neurotoxin injectable and dermal fillers effectively treat fine lines and wrinkles, they are made of different ingredients and treat aging signs through a different process.
What are some of the aging complaints dermal fillers treat?
Dermal fillers can do much more than smooth out wrinkles. Below are some of the common issues that accompany aging:
- Smile lines
- Smokers lines
- Thinning lips
- Hollowed cheeks
- Crow’s feet
- Marionette lines
What are fillers made with?
Fillers are categorized by the substance they are made from. It is essential to ensure you are using products that are recommended by cosmetic surgeons. The product most used in the clinic is Hyaluronic acid. Approved HA fillers include:
- Sculptra Aesthetics
Sculptra is made of particles called polylactic acid (PLLA) suspended in water. Injections of Sculptra add volume to your skin to fill in lines or hollow areas. It stimulates collagen production, and with time it dissolves, leaving collagen in its place, so you get gradual and natural-looking results.
Juvederm is the most used dermal filler and is commonly used to volumize moderate to severe wrinkles and folds around the nose and mouth. They are effective in plumping lips and cheeks and reducing the appearance of nasolabial folds, smokers lines, and other facial wrinkles.
Belotero balance is a smooth, flexible gel integrated into your facial tissue. This filler effectively treats stubborn, deeply set lines and wrinkles.
Radiesse contains calcium hydroxylapatite and helps stimulate new collagen production, the protein substance in your body that enhances the structure, to provide a continuous improvement over time.
Are injectable and dermal fillers safe?
Both neurotoxin injectable and dermal fillers have proven safety profiles. At the injection site, minor bruising, swelling, and redness can occur. The specialist will give you an allergy test before treatment to reduce the risk of adverse reactions. The visibility and longevity of results depend on your condition, and a customized treatment plan will be created depending on your needs.
