What are Dermal Fillers?
Aging is a part of life, and as the years pass, the less vibrant, refreshed and youthful the skin may begin to look. When you are young, there is an abundance of collagen, hyaluronic acid and elastin which gives to your skin support, volume and suppleness. As we age, these natural support structures become less plentiful. The result is wrinkles, facial lines and skin laxity – all of which rob the skin of its youthful, fresh appearance.
FDA-approved since the 80s, treated bovine collagen was used as “fillers” onto the dermis. Later in 2000’s new artificial “fillers” – Radiesse, Juvederm, Perlane and Restylane came to the market. They are safely injected to the areas that needed to be treated. Compared to other treatments, dermal fillers are generally safe, hypoallergenic and painless. Moreover, this treatment has more consistent and significant results. It takes less downtime for patients and feels natural under the skin with lower risks of complications, provided that you seek professional assistance. Patients are advised not to manipulate the treated area to prevent the filler from shifting to other regions of the face, after the procedure. If there are inflammations or redness on the treated area, apply a cool pack and see your doctor.
Because of its effectiveness, medical spa’s have experienced a great demand for the treatment since the past decade. However, its needs to be injected by highly trained professionals to provide best results and safety for the clients and assure a proper step by step process.
