What is Derma Fillers?
Dermal fillers, also known as facial fillers or soft tissue fillers, are injectable substances used to restore volume, smooth out wrinkles, and enhance facial contours. They are typically made from biocompatible materials such as hyaluronic acid (HA), calcium hydroxyapatite, poly-L-lactic acid, and polymethylmethacrylate.
Common use of Derma Fillers
Dermal fillers are commonly used for cosmetic purposes to address signs of aging, such as fine lines, wrinkles, hollow areas, and loss of volume in the face. They can be used to augment the cheeks, lips, chin, and temples and fill in nasolabial folds (smile lines), marionette lines, and other areas of the face. Dermal fillers can also be used for non-cosmetic purposes, such as correcting facial asymmetry, scars, and other facial imperfections.
How is Derma Fillers Performed?
The procedure typically involves injecting the filler directly into the targeted area using a fine needle or cannula. The filler adds volume, plumps up the skin, and smooths out wrinkles or depressions, resulting in a more youthful and rejuvenated appearance. The effects of dermal fillers are temporary and can last from several months to over a year, depending on the type of filler used and individual factors.
Is Derma Fillers Safe?
Dermal fillers are considered safe when administered by a qualified and experienced healthcare professional. However, like any medical procedure, they carry risks, including infection, allergic reactions, bruising, and lumpiness. It's important to consult with a qualified healthcare professional to determine if dermal fillers suit your specific needs and discuss the potential risks and benefits.
