Dermal fillers have revolutionized the cosmetic Dermatology industry. These treatments which can correct fine lines and reverse age lines, augment and support the sagging tissues of the skin and volumise the sunken under eye area or perfect a lip pout are now becoming increasingly common as they are affordable and offer the comfort of a non surgical correction. Details about what these fillers are and how they can be used are discussed below.
What are dermal fillers?
With age, one loses facial fat and this causes the lines and wrinkles to appear. The earliest signs of ageing are development of hollows under the eyes, followed by the smile lines around the mouth. As one ages further, one also develops hollows over the temples and under the lips. Correction of these volume losses is possible through the use of dermal fillers. So the concept of fillers has evolved from filling the lines to restoring the natural volumes or curves of the face.
A second use of these fillers is in augmentation. In younger people who desire more fuller lips or high cheekbones, fillers can be used to give proper definition, hydration and volume.
Dermal fillers are made of hyaluronic acid, which is a normal component of all mammalian skin. These molecules have the capacity to hold on to water molecules and hydrate the skin. The hyaluronic acid is synthesised in the lab and available in a prefilled syringe. Different strengths of dermal fillers are used depending on the area needed to be treated. For eg: a dermal filler of a thicker consistency is needed for a cheek augmentation or chin reshaping, where as a thinner and more delicate consistency is needed to treat the under eye area or the lip.
What are temporary Fillers made of?
The dermal fillers are made of non-animal-based hyaluronic acid. Hyaluronic acid is a natural substance that already exists in the human body and is used to provide volume and fullness to the skin. The hyaluronic acid in Temporary Fillers is a crystal-clear gel called NASHA or Non- Animal Stabilized Hyaluronic Acid. NASHA is biodegradable and fully biocompatible with human hyaluronic acid and is made in a lab by bio-fermentation.
Unlike rooster-derived hyaluronic acid based products, these fillers are free from animal proteins. This quality limits any risk of animal-based disease transmission or allergic reaction. These Fillers contains trace amounts of gram-positive bacterial proteins and should not be used by patients with a history of allergies to such material. Additionally, they have the highest concentration of hyaluronic acid available in a dermal filler.
