We normally think that rejuvenating of the face skin can be done Botox. Botox is basically used for removing the wrinkles which are caused by the muscles of expression. Botox has many side effects also like stiffness in muscles, difficulty in breathing, headache, back or neck pain, rashes, allergic reactions and many more.
Nowadays doctors are using Dermal Fillers for rejuvenating the face skin by giving the volume to the cheek and chin, which get loosen up with the advancement in age. Hyaluronic acid dermal fillers are normally used to restore the lost volume.
Hyaluronic acid is already present in our face along with the collagen and elastin but it starts decreasing with the increase in age. Hyaluronic acid dermal fillers induce collagen and elastin to give the lost volume to the targeted area. As a result, you have lifted cheeks, rejuvenated skin which flawless and soft.
WHY NOT ANTI-AGING CREAMS AND LOTIONS TO REMOVE WRINKLES
The anti-gain creams, lotions are good for those who have few wrinkles or for those who would like to prevent wrinkles from coming. These products do not work when you already have wrinkles.
TYPES OF DERMAL FILLERS
The different types of dermal fillers come under two categories:- either synthetic or natural and either absorbable or non-absorbable. The FDA approved some of the synthetic fillers which proved to effective for the skin.
Artefill filler is called as Artecoll. Artefill filler is fundamentally a non-absorbable synthetic filler which is made up of tiny microbeads which are floating in the bovine collagen. Since it does not get absorbed by the body quickly, therefore, it can last longer than the collagen. Artefill filler is regarded as the permanent filler by experts.
Artefill Fillers are mostly used to improve smile lines.
Radiesse ( also known as Radiance) is primarily an absorbable and synthetic filler. It works in a very simple way. When a doctor injects Radiesse filler, the microspheres suspends into the targeted area. As a result, the collagen( a protein which gives structure to the skin) starts forming around the microspheres which firm the skin. Radiesse stimulates the production of Collagen.
Doctors are using Radiesse from several years to remove wrinkles, frown lines or the folds of the forehead. According to the FDA, Radiesse dermal filler is safe to use. The effect of Radiesse lasts for 1-2 years.
Radiesse dermal filler provides enhanced contour in jawline, chin and nose.
Collagen injections inject the collagen below the surface of the skin. Collagen Injection improves the shape and texture of the skin. Either human tissue or the cow tissue is used to prepare the collagen injections and, therefore, FDA ( Food and Drug Administration) considers it to be safe to use.
Collagen is used to fill the wrinkles and also the scars due to acne. As a result, the scars and wrinkles become less noticeable. Collagen is also used to plump the lips.
Since collagen is a protein and it gets dissolved in the body. Therefore the result does not last long. On average, the collagen fillers last from 90 days to 8 months.
Restylane or Juvederm dermal filler injections is one of the best alternatives to collagen injections. Restylane or Juvederm is FDA approved.
Restylane is used to improve facial wrinkles and facial folds.
In our body, Hyaluronic acid is naturally present but as the age increases the level of Hyaluronic acid decreases. Biodegradable and stabilised Hyaluronic acid is used to prepare Restylane dermal filler. Therefore it is beneficial for the treatment of the skin.
Restylane lasts long then the collagen injections. After completing the procedure, the face looks very natural.
Poly-L-Lactic is commonly known as Sculptra. Sculptra uses a synthetic polymer which is known as microspheres as a dermal filler. Sculptra is FDA approved, therefore, safe to use.
The working of Sculptra is a bit different than other dermal fillers we have discussed before.
Microspheres result in skin irritation. As a result, there is an increase in the fibroblastic activity and collagen level starts increasing naturally. The thickness in the treated areas also increases.
Sculptra treatment last for approximately two years. Since microspheres are synthetic polymers, the chances of getting an allergic reaction are very less.
