There are many options for facial fillers today. However, the goal is always the same — to smooth away unsightly facial grooves and wrinkles. Injectable fillers use a wide variety of materials that produce varying results in terms of longevity and effects.
The one that is right for you will depend on the extent of your facial flaws as well as your personal preference or passable goals.
Fillers can be divided into two categories: Temporary and Semi-Permanent.
Human fat, also known as autologous fat, is harvested from your own body. Using your own fat requires a more extensive procedure than other injectable fillers because you first must undergo liposuction to extract the fat prior to injection.
PMMA fillers contain about 20 percent of tiny PMMA microspheres that are suspended in 80 percent purified collagen gel. This substance, considered semi-permanent, can be removed.
Dermal Fillers Defined
DERMAL FILLERS can improve the look of wrinkles, scarring and other depressions in your skin. For people who would rather not undergo a surgically invasive procedure, using cosmetic fillers may be the perfect compromise.
Collagen is a natural substance known as a protein, and the main component in cartilage, teeth and bones. Brand names include: CosmoDerm, Zyderm, Zyplast.
Hyaluronic acid is also a natural substance found in your body. High concentrations are found in soft connective tissue and in the fluid surrounding your eyes. It’s also in some cartilage and joint fluids, as well as skin tissue. Brand names include: Captique, Esthelis, Hylaform, Juvederm, Perlane, Prevelle, Puragen and Restylane.
Calcium hydroxylapatite is found naturally in human bones. This mineral-like compound is reserved to fill the deepest creases such as nasolabial folds, marionette lines and frown lines. It’s also used to enhance fullness of the cheeks and other facial contours. Calcium-based microspheres are suspended in a water-based gel. Brand names include: Radiesse, Radiance.
Polylactic acid is a synthetic material. When it is injected, it stimulates the body’s own production of collagen. This substance is known to work particularly well in the lower half of your face to fill the lines caused by laughing, to augment thin lips and fill out deep nasolabial folds. Brand names include: Sculptra, New-Fill.
PMMA or Polymethylmethacrylate beads are most often used to treat medium-to-deep wrinkles, folds and furrows, particularly nasolabial folds. Brand names include: Articol, Artefill, Metacrill.
Procedure for Derma Fillers
Your surgeon in Mexico will mark strategic points on your face as guides to the appropriate injection sites for the dermal filler.
Your injection sites will be cleansed with an antibacterial agent. Then a topical anesthetic will be used to numb the area, particularly if you are sensitive to injections. In some cases, the dermal filler includes an anesthetic in the mixture.
The actual injections will take just a few minutes total, and just seconds per site.
The marks will be washed away and you will be offered an ice pack to reduce any minor and temporary discomfort. There is no downtime with dermal fillers. You can resume most activities immediately.
Some swelling is expected following the treatment and typically lasts for 12-48 hours. Some patients experience bruising following the treatment but this is minor and resolves itself over a few days. Makeup can be worn to disguise any minor bruising.
Risks and Side Effects
Complications from dermal fillers are uncommon. The risks include: Acne, Antibodies, or rejection of filler material, may reduce the effectiveness of future injections, Asymmetry, Bleeding, Bruising
Fillers that contain microscopic granular substances, particularly, calcium hydroxylapatite, may clump as a result of facial movement or your natural aging process. As time progress, these masses can turn into lumps or nodules. Surgery can remove the lumps.
