As soon as you enter your 30’s, one thing that you wish stops right there is the way your face looks. Who wants those wrinkles, fine lines, blemishes, and dark patches anyways! Be it men or women, a lot of us take that extra step to make sure that our facial skin looks better with each passing day. That we grow old looking young or wish we could pause the way we look. While home remedies may work temporarily, for a long-term and lasting solution – dermal fillers are the answer. These injectable fillers not only diminish the facial lines but are also effective in restoring the volume and fullness in the face.
As we age we lose the fat deposits on our face (ones that grant our face a fuller look) and give way to crow’s feet and smile lines. The skin also stretches a bit, adding to the loss of facial volume. The change in genetic predisposition, medications, sudden weight loss, extreme climatic conditions, stress, pollution, etc. makes sure that whatever sheen is left on the face slowly fades away. At a point like this, though using advanced creams and going for expensive salon facials may help you a bit, they do not bring back what you have lost.
Therefore, you must consult a dermatologist for these dermal/wrinkle fillers can help in the long run:
- Plump thin lips and redefine lip border to give your lips a fuller look
- Reconstruct, enhance, and soften shallow contours, facial creases
- Decrease the appearance of recessed scars and the shadow of the lower lids
- Reduce scars from acne, burns, and wound
- Reconstruct Cheek depressions
- Soften crow’s feet, deep smile lines, frown lines, marionette lines, smoker lines, worry lines, etc.
Type of Dermal / Wrinkle Fillers you must know about
Autologous wrinkle fillers make use of the patient’s fat which is surgically removed from the thighs, buttocks, or stomach. Another form of autologous fillers is platelet-rich plasma injections wherein blood is drawn from the arm, processed, and then injected.
Collagen albeit provides the most natural look compared to the rest, but the results do not last for as long as other wrinkle fillers.
Hyaluronic acid is a substance found in high concentrations in the soft connective tissues around the eyes. There are many types of hyaluronic acid wrinkle fillers available that are a stabilized form of the acid, which can be applied through injections. This can help reduce fine lines and wrinkles.
Polyalkylimide is a biocompatible and radio transparent substance. It is mostly used as a semi-permanent dermal filler to treat deeper wrinkles, enhance cheekbones, treat facial wasting from medications, etc.
Polylactic acid is a synthetic stimulator in the form of a dermal filler that when injected into the face causes the body to produce collagen. This is why the results take time to surface. This is a non-toxic biodegradable substance that works particularly well in the lower half of the face and treats fine lines caused by laughing, deep nasolabial folds, etc.
Polymethyl-methacrylate microspheres are ideal to get rid of folds and furrows, pitted scars, augment thin lips, and treat medium to deep wrinkles. This wrinkle filler is preferred over the rest when the patient is looking for a more permanent solution to facial wrinkles. As this filler requires a couple of injections, is it all the more necessary to look for a skin specialist that is well-versed with the procedure and related techniques.
Synthetic wrinkle fillers have nothing that is naturally found in the skin. They have long-lasting results, but this also means that they have more side effects than the rest. If not used in the right way, they may also cause side effects like disfigurement.
Few dermal fillers risks you must know about:
Skin eruptions that look like acne
Asymmetry on the face and lumps
Bruising, swelling, and bleeding at the injected site
Wound, possible scarring, or infection at the injected site
Redness, rashes, or itching at the injected site
Under or over correction of wrinkles
Facelifts are a tad too expensive and are in most cases, not required. Wrinkle fillers on the other hand cost only a fraction, are equally effective, and give you the desired look without much hassle. All you need is an experienced skin specialist who knows what they are doing and can add volume to your face in just a session or two.
Dermal fillers differ from each other and have their own chemical makeup, degrees of softness, and longevity. The choice depends on your problem area, the skin type, and the volume of filler required.
Dermal fillers have a set of temporary side effects associated with them, which can be easily avoided if your doctor shares the right information with you before the procedure and takes care post-procedure to keep you hale and hearty. They should be capable of dealing with any complication that may occur without causing you further harm.
