Dermal Fillers for Facial Rejuvenation
The fundamental working principle of dermal fillers is ‘pumping’. This simply implies that they will pump up the area around the region that has received the injection, leveling with other parts of the skin, thus making it not look sunken by any means. Ultimately, different fillers may have this goal achieved in slightly different ways, but the bottom line result is that the skin will look plump and firm, young and refreshed.
These are materials that are frequently used to correct scarring, wrinkles, and other depressions in the skin. They are often a kind of soft tissue designed in such a way that enables injection into the skin for purposes of improving the appearance. Generally, they are made of several types of materials of synthetic, man-made and natural categories, and they have been developed into various standards depending on the level of usage. For anyone suffering from problems like wrinkles, folds or depressions such as scars, derma fillers may be the right product for job. The procedure is quick, often just 30 minutes or less. Many people experience no pain at all and minimum side effects.
Types of Dermal Filler
There are two major types of dermal filler. Permanent and semi permanent, we do not use permanent dermal fillers. The semi permanent fillers are resorbable dermal fillers. Collagen is the most popular type of Dermal Filler and in the UK is called Collagen Instant Therapy. It is made from Bovine Collagen where it undergoes a high degree of purification. The purification process will bring the collagen up to the standards of natural collagen found under the skin. This type of filler comes in different levels of thickness and depending on the type of wrinkle the appropriate filler is used.
As your skin ages, it loses the collagen that helps to shape and support it. Facial lines are an inevitable part of the aging process but gravity genetics and stress are just some of the factors which are causative factors in the appearance of skin markers of aging. Dermal fillers are quite effective in filling up lines in general. Some of the most common lines that can be filled in both men and women include naso-labial lines, which are lines from the nose to the corners of the mouth. These are commonly called smile or frown lines.
Wrinkles are an equally common condition that can be treated, some of them including forehead wrinkles and crow’s feet wrinkles. Other commonly treated skin conditions are weak and sunken cheeks, acne scars and regular scars, and unsightly veins in aged skin. Generally, the lines, wrinkles and folds that can be treated by use of dermal fillers include lip lines (lipstick or smoke initiated), tear troughs (tired, baggy eyes), marionette lines (mouth to chin), frown lines, crow’s feet (around the eye), and naso-labial lines (nose to mouth). Other applications can be classified under skin rejuvenation or contouring and enhancement. Under rejuvenation, the various parts that can be treated include the face, neck and hand backs. Contouring and enhancement includes eyebrow reshaping, chin enhancement, cheek sculpting for sunken cheeks, jowls un-sagging, turning up the mouth corners, and lip enhancement. The advantage with Dermal Fillers is that the effects last 12-14 months.
