Are Dermal Fillers Safe?
Dermal fillers are gel consistency cosmetic injections, used to fill in frown lines and to add volume to particular facial areas. There is a variety of fillers composed of different natural and synthetic substances. The most common are hyaluronic acid (HA) fillers, such as Juvederm. Hyaluronic acid is produced by the cells of the human body. It supports the flexibility of the joints and moisturizes the skin. One molecule of hyaluronic acid contains a thousand molecules of water. The other ones contain polylactic acid, calcium hydroxylate, collagen and animal fats or patient’s own transplanted fat.
How does it work?
By the edge of 25, our body reduces collagen and hyaluronic acid production. As a result, the skin stretches and loses elasticity. Facial muscles and bones decrease, which leads to deeper wrinkles, sagging skin and cheekbones fall.
To fulfill the volume and hydration deficit HA-based creams, serums and even tablets are used in cosmetology. But injections remain the most effective way to fight wrinkles because only thanks to injections the magic remedy gets into the deep layers of the skin. Acid fills the cavity under the folds, the skin rises and tightens, and wrinkles disappear for 9-12 months. The treatment lasts for 20-30 minutes. Immediately after the procedure, you can return to social and professional life.
