Facial Fillers: What Are the Differences?
Dermal filler primarily contains hyaluronic acid (HA) a natural substance produced in the body. The body over time reduces the amount of HA that is produced in the skin. HA is found in quite large amounts around the body and it helps maintain the appearance of the skin by promoting volume and hydration while lubricating and supporting joints and other tissue. So many new dermal filler products have been rapidly entering the market over the last decade, which has resulted in ample choices available to cosmetic doctors. New facial filler brands seemingly coming out of nowhere at times can often confuse patients who are researching whileconsidering getting filler injections to deal with their various skin concerns.
Hyaluronic acid retains and attracts moisture and can absorb more than 1000 times its weight in water. HA has molecular properties that bind with collagen and elastin, transporting important and essential nutrients to those fibers which make up and support the skin’s structure. The reduction of HA levels most commonly seen with aging results in a progressive deterioration of the dermis structure that reduces volume in the skin. Reduced HA levels promote the development of wrinkles, lines and other imperfections on the face, especially around the nose, eyes and mouth. Facial filler injections are quite a safe and effective way to deal with wrinkles, lines and other signs of aging that have formed on the face due to this. There is a variety of facial filler products available on the market, below is some general information on the common products available regarding facial fillers.
Some dermal fillers will last longer than others and some will be of a thicker consistency as well as a number of other subtle variations. When it comes to finding out the differences nothing is more useful than a consultation with a skilled and experienced Cosmetic Doctor.
