While deciding to go with a filler treatment, there are many doubts that go through the clients’ mind.  The following article gives an insight on what are dermal fillers and how do they work.

Why are dermal fillers used?

Dermal fillers are used for a variety of purposes. They are commonly used to solve aging related issues, especially on the nose and the face.  The uses of dermal fillers are:

  • Adding volume and smoothening out the lines connecting from the nose to the sides of the mouth. These lines are also called as laugh lines.
  • Dermal fillers are also used to make the limps more plumps and also to remove any unwanted edges around the lips.
  • Restoring the shape of the cheeks
  • Filling the under eye area
  • Increase the voluminous region to fill out the lower cheek area where fat is very much prominent.

How do dermal fillers work?

Dermal fillers are made up of natural or synthetic materials which are directly injected into the targeted area until the depression or the wrinkle is completely gone. This procedure should not be confused with Botox, where the procedure is the same. Botox is used to paralyse the muscles responsible for wrinkling and aging, while dermal fillers provide a more plumping effect to the face. Since both of the procedures work differently, most people decide to use both these procedures together to have a younger looking face.

Types of fillers:

There are two types of fillers: synthetic and natural fillers.

Natural fillers provide a much less chance of having an allergic reaction, and since they are natural, they progressively get degraded along with the results. Once the filler starts to dissipate it is necessary for the client to get follow up injections. Natural fillers usually last for about 18 months and the clients have to get a follow up injection every year for best results.

Synthetic fillers are used for getting permanent results on the face and they provide results for a longer period of time. The reason why they are semi permanent is because they do not dissipate as much as the naturally derived fillers. But there is a chance of formation of wrinkles due to prolonged exposure to sunlight and aging.

Risks associated from fillers

  • One of the main problems associated with fillers is its longevity. There is also the issue of migrations and lumping of the fillers and also the experience level of the cosmetologist and how well they have done the procedure.
  • Also, the injection procedure along with the type of materials used also determines the amount of risk that the procedure gives.
  • To reduce the risk from fillers it is necessary that different fillers are to be used at different parts of the face for best results.

If you are considering for a filler treatment , it is best to first consult a dermatologist and then decide whether or not it suitable for you.
