Understanding Dermal Fillers
Below is some important information that will give you an idea about how dermal fillers can prevent your skin from looking aged and lifeless:
- How dermal fillers work: The function of dermal fillers is specific. The doctor directly injects a synthetic or naturally derived substance into the brow area, fine lines, the lines at the corners of the nose and the mouth, jawline depressions, hollow areas under the eyes and other similar places. With the injection of this substance, the lines and wrinkles instantly appear filled-in. The skin looks plump to the extent that all depressions, folds and wrinkles disappear.
- Types of dermal fillers: There is a long list of available dermal fillers. Some are derived from one’s own body while others are made up of a chemical compound. Every filler comes with its own set of pros and cons. There are cost differences as well as longevity variations. For instance, Alloderm is derived from donated cadaver tissue of humans, prepared in a way which holds the underlying structure but in the absence of any cells which could lead to rejection.
- No ‘Best’ filler: The dermal filler that is best suited to your needs will be decided by your cosmetic surgeon. This also depends on their technique, training, skill and the tolerance level of your skin.
