|Tissues augmentation is possible by injecting apposite materials
into the derma with the aim of treating wrinkles, deep scars,
lips and correct asymmetries of the skin surface.
They are a group of molecules used for instant therapy, which
is completely different from using cosmetics or moisturizers
as they can only work on the surface.
The fillers are injected with a very fine needle and can make
an immediate change to the way you look.
One of the most used fillers is Collagen:
it helps replace your natural collagen, a protein that supports
the skin and gives it its youthful tone and suppleness, but
which is gradually lost from the skin as time passes.
People often ask for the treatment to enhance their lips and
make the lip outline more attractive.
Following treatment you may experience a little localized
redness and swelling, but this normally settles down after
maximum a day. The injected collagen is gradually absorbed
by the body, so that treatment needs topping up two or three
times a year to maintain the new look.
Another natural component of the skin is Hyaluronic
acid, which binds water in the skin and lifts and
restores skin's natural elasticity and volume, smoothes wrinkles
and folds and gives an improved contour to lip lines. It acts
very similar to collagen.
The results of the injection will last from 4 -6 months depending
on age, skin type, and activity.
Contraindications for both Collagen and Hyaluronic
acid are: pregnancy and breast feeding, active skin
disorders on the face, and auto-immune disorders.
Semi-permanent and Permanent
fillers are often composed by viscoelastic polyacrylamide
gel which act as a framework for the deposition of collagen,
elastin, glycosaminoglycans and fibronectin, and provides
a semi-permanent filler which will last for up to 2 years
or a permanent filler which last forever.
With the Semi-permanent products, further treatment is required
after 4 weeks.
Contraindications are the same of the non permanent fillers.
If you are concerned about facial wrinkles and lines they
could be the answer you've been looking for.
