Dermal filler is a type of injectable designed for administration into the soft tissue to improve the volume and fullness of the skin. There are various options of fillers with different active substances that are meant for multiple facial areas, age, wrinkles deepness, etc.
Among the most popular ones are calcium hydroxylapatite, hyaluronic acid, polyalkylimide, polylactic acid, and polymethyl-methacrylate microspheres. They vary in their composition, durability, additional components and are chosen individually for the client’s needs and health peculiarities. Overall, fillers are more long-lasting than, for example, Botox, so more people prefer the first product over the second one. Typically, you can expect a long-term effect from 6 months to up to two years (depending on the type of the remedy).
Not only that, but dermal fillers can also be used for almost every facial area – lines and wrinkles around the mouth and lips, smile lines, fine lines in between the eyebrows and around the eyes (crow’s feet). Patients can also restore lost volume in the cheeks area and enhance lips without the need for plastic surgery. Thanks to the composition, some remedies can get rid of even the deepest creases so that every person will find a product perfect for precisely their case.
One more critical factor that makes fillers so popular is that it is a partially invasive procedure, so there are no severe side effects. People can go back to the usual everyday routine right after the treatment, and the results mostly become visible on the next day. Sometimes, injection site reactions may appear; however, there are plenty of ways that can help eliminate them a lot faster.
Why are hyaluronic acid dermal fillers considered the best on the market?
Among all types of fillers, dermal hyaluronic acid fillers are the most commonly used ones. The list of benefits for these products is truly amazing, that is why more and more beauticians choose such injectables as Juvederm, Restylane, Belotero, etc., for their clients. But why exactly is HA so favorable for patients? Let’s have a closer look at this.
1. Hyaluronic acid is a substance produced naturally in the body
Because this component of the fillers is produced in the human body, injections with HA of non-animal origin almost never cause health complications or severe allergic reactions, as well as absorbed better by the body tissues.
2. This cosmetic product is easy to administer
Thanks to the structure of the fillers based on hyaluronic acid, these injectables are perfect for subcutaneous administration. The products vary in density (so, various signs of aging can be eliminated with their help), is very smooth (that guarantees comfortable treatment session), and include lidocaine in the composition pretty often (in this way, all unpleasant sensations are reduced to the max).
3. HA is beneficial for the overall health condition
Thanks to this component, the natural production of elastin and HA in the body increases as well. That is why skin looks much younger even after the filler wears off.
4. The recovery process demands minimal time
Due to the origin of the main ingredient, there are absolutely no problems with the absorption of the injected solution by the body. Sometimes people with sensitive skin require more time to recover because of injection site reactions (such as bruising, redness, swelling, etc.) that appear after the aesthetic procedure.
5. A positive effect is visible right after the injection
If your skin is not too sensitive, you may not worry about any complications at all. Thanks to the special composition of dermal fillers, you may see the first signs of positive results right after the procedure and observe a full improvement in two to three days.
