If you’re reading this article, chances are that you already know what dermal fillers are, but you may still have questions and concerns about the treatment.
If that’s right, you have arrived at exactly the right spot.
Today, we’ll be looking at this popular Anti-aging treatment in Sharjah and elsewhere to find out how dermal fillers work and what can they be used to fix. C’mon, let’s find out!
What are Dermal Fillers Used For?
By definition, dermal filler is a product that is either injected or placed in the dermis layer of skin. It helps in diminishing wrinkles and restoring volume to the face.
Dermal fillers can help fix many signs of aging, including:
- Softening creases that run between the nose and mouth
- Smoothing out deep wrinkles
- Adding volume to sunken cheeks
- Plumping up thin lips
- Filling out the hollow area under the eyes
- Filling indented scars to make them appear even with surrounding skin
These are some of the most common uses of dermal fillers. There, however, can be many more uses.
How Dermal Fillers Work?
Dermal filler is a naturally-derived synthetic material that is directly injected into the skin. There are different types of dermal fillers and they all work in unique ways. All of these types however have the same purpose: plumping the skin to the point that wrinkles and fine lines disappear completely.
Dermal fillers are not like Botox. Botox is injected into the skin to immobilize facial muscles in order to reduce the appearance of wrinkles. Dermal fillers, on the other hand, only adds volume to the face to make it appear fuller.
How Long Dermal Fillers Last
The lasting age of a dermal filler is determined by the type of filler being used. While some fillers last only 4 months, others are designed to last for about 2 years. Fillers that use fat, on the other hand, have permanent results. Depending on your individual needs, your surgeon can determine which of these types will best suit your own needs.
Recovery From Dermal Fillers
Dermal fillers usually take only minutes to be administered and there are no visible signs of any markings after the procedure. In most cases, the entire process lasts for about 30 minutes and you usually feel fine upon leaving your surgeon’s clinic.
If, however, you have opted for a dermal filler made of fat, the procedure is going to be slightly lengthier. The surgeon will first extract fat from elsewhere on your body through liposuction and then use the same as a filler on the face. The entire procedure is more time-consuming.
In rare cases, some side effects may emerge after the treatment. There can be swelling and redness at the site of injection. The recovery from these side effects may be slightly longer.
Risks Associated With Dermal Fillers
Complications arising with the use of dermal fillers is uncommon, however, depending on the quality of the filler used, the following side effects may be experienced by the patient:
- Skin damage that can lead to scarring
- Bruising and swelling
- Bleeding from where the filler was injected
- Acne-like eruptions on the skin
- Rashes and itching of the skin
- Formation of lumps
The probability of these risks can, however, be greatly reduced if you chose a surgeon who has loads of experience in administering dermal fillers. He’ll ensure you stay clear of all troubles.
