The Tale of Age-Correcting Dermal Fillers

The Tale of Age-Correcting Dermal Fillers

When it comes to our face, skin, fat and muscle make up the bulk of the structural components. Many of the apparent indications of aging are caused by the decrease of volume in these structures as we grow older. It's possible that dermal fillers can help.

Age-related facial bone loss can cause the jawline to retract, the nose to descend, and the cheekbones to recede. A loss of volume and suppleness in the face muscles and an increase in facial fat deflation and movement all contribute to an aged appearance. Finally, as we age, our skin loses elasticity as it stretches, which, when combined with the loss of muscle, fat, and bone, results in wrinkles and drooping.

As an injectable procedure in a doctor's office, dermal fillers help to fill in wrinkles and restore the appearance of young.

What are facial fillers?

Cosmetic fillers are soft, gel-like compounds injected into the dermis. Deep under-eye circles can be smoothed, cheekbones can be lifted, lips can be volumized, nasolabial folds can be smoothed, and hands can be rejuvenated.

There are a range of chemicals that can be used in dermal fillers, some of which are natural and some of which are synthetic. Hyaluronic acid is a prominent ingredient in dermal fillers. In our skin, HA naturally occurs component to help maintain the skin hydrated and full. According to the precise chemical composition of HA fillers, they can last anywhere from a few months to several years.

There are many advantages to using HA fillers in addition to their natural appearance, such as its dissolvability in the event of an adverse event, or if the patient does not like the results. Lidocaine, an anesthetic, is commonly added to most HA fillers to ensure patient comfort during treatment.

Additionally, dermal fillers produced from calcium hydroxyl apatite, lactic acid and polymethyl methacrylate are also available. Hydroxyl apatite is a mineral-like substance that naturally occurs in human bones.

Reconstructive plastic and dental surgery have been using it for many years, and it has a proven safety record. It is artificial filler that stimulates the formation of collagen. The outcomes of this filler are more gradual than those of other fillers, as it fuels the body to create collagen. Although it is more lasting than other biodegradable fillers, it might cause problems such as lumps or being visible under the skin, which are not uncommon.
