Dermal fillers are cosmetic treatments that help increase skin volume to smooth out wrinkles, reduce pitted scars, and make lips fuller. Unlike botulinum toxin, fillers do not reduce the activity of muscles in the face.
Out of the many kinds of dermal fillers available in the market, hyaluronic acid (Restylane, Juvederm, Captique) is the considered to have the best safety profile. HA is a natural sugar found in skin and doesn’t contain human or animal DNA.
Dermal fillers are administered into the skin through injection, which takes around 10 to 15 minutes.The procedure is generally tolerable and does not require medication. After the treatment, you may experience redness and swelling, which may last up to 36 hours but can be reduced with an ice pack. Depending on your body’s reaction to the fillers and on your doctor’s recommendation, repeated sessions may be required to achieve the desired effect.
Effects of fillers
Fillers can last anywhere from six months to two years. Results are subtle yet very impressive in reducing fine lines and restoring skin volume. You will look younger and more refreshed but in a natural way. To help preserve its effect and protect your skin against post-inflammatory pigment changes, use sunscreen daily. Once the plumping effect wears off, your skin will go back to its natural state and you may need to get another filler injection.
Things to consider
Before getting dermal fillers, it’s always best to consult with a doctor before undergoing the procedure. It is also advisable to have the treatment in a medical setting with sterile instruments to avoid the risk of infections. Do not get fillers if you’re pregnant or nursing because its effects have not been tested on settings of such sensitive nature.
And remember, even with dermal fillers on, you still need to get regular skincare treatments and use well-formulated skincare products to keep your skin looking younger and healthier for a very long time.
