Injectable Dermal Fillers

Beauty Treatment

Injectable Dermal Fillers are non-surgical rejuvenation gel preparations that help reduce or eliminate deep lines and wrinkles.

So What Is Injectable Dermal Fillers

  • Fillers are non-surgical rejuvenation gel preparations that help get rid of deep wrinkles and the effects of ptosis (tissue prolapse due to gravity).
  • Fillers replenish and lift tissue.
  • They are injected into the area of the cheekbones, nasolabial and glabellar folds, the corners of the lips, under the eyes.
  • They are used to smooth skin with post-acne marks.

Types and Methods

What kind of injectable dermal fillers there are?

Fillers for the face are primarily divided into absorbable and not. The latter (they consist of silicone and polyacrylamide) were popular at the beginning of the 21st century, but since then cosmetology has made great strides, and they are hardly used anymore – mainly due to the fact that they can only be removed surgically, and the risk of complications pretty high. Today, most fillers are based on hyaluronic acid, but there are options with a different composition. Let’s consider each of them in more detail.

  • Based on hyaluronic acid. Hyaluronic filler, as a rule, solves two problems at once: it corrects imperfections without surgery and triggers the production of its own hyaluronic acid. Fillers based on hyaluronic acid vary in density and last from 6 months to 1 year. Soft fillers are used to treat nasolacrimal grooves. More dense– to correct wrinkles around the lips. Long-acting fillers are suitable for “sculpting” the cheekbones and chin, including for getting rid of such a problem as ptosis.
  • Based on calcium hydroxyapatite. Fillers based on it are more durable. As a rule, correction is required only 1.5–2 years after the procedure.
  • Lipofilling. Our own fat can act as a filler. Very little is required. The advantage of using this filler is that, as a rule, it does not cause rejection, since our own cells are used. A clear result of lipofilling may appear in 1-2 months, but it will last for several years.

Where are fillers used?

  • Lips – With the help of fillers, cosmetologists correct the shape and contour of the lips, as well as give them volume. They can visually lift the corners of the lips. Depending on the problem, experts choose compositions of different densities. For example, for a rejuvenating effect and adding volume, more plastic and dense fillers are used.
  • Nasolabial folds – Fillers in the nasolabial folds give an immediate effect. Beauticians advise judging the final result after 2 weeks, when the edema after the procedure completely subsides.
  • Between the eyebrows – Creases between the eyebrows are also smoothed out with fillers. But hyaluronic acid is not able to stop active facial expressions, therefore fillers will not relieve such wrinkles for a long time, and other solutions to the problem will be required.
  • Skin around the eyes – The area under the eyes is characterized by various problems. The first is wrinkles. The second is dark circles. And the third is edema. In this delicate area, experts advise the use of low-density fillers.
  • Nasolacrimal grooves – These lines are quite common. But only a few people know that they can be corrected with fillers. The main thing is that at the time of the procedure there should be no hernias in this area, otherwise it is easy to get the opposite effect and additional edema.
  • Cheekbone correction – A professional with extensive experience should work with the filler. Especially in the areas of the cheekbones and chin. The fact is that the composition introduced under the skin interacts here with the bone tissue, which means that it can stay in these areas much longer.
  • Nose – Contour correction with fillers is also used to correct the shape of the nose – for example, if you need to hide a slight asymmetry or hump, slightly raise the tip. In addition, fillers in this area are used to correct imperfections left after rhinoplasty.
