Dermal fillers are substances for injection, which most often have the form of liquids or gels. After entering the dermis or subcutaneous layer, dermal fillers eliminate the external signs of ageing, replacing the lost fat and filling the empty space under wrinkles, facial wrinkles and the skin of the sunken cheeks. Dermal fillers are used to form fuller lips or eliminate various facial defects.
Dermal fillers differ significantly from neurotoxins, for example, botulinum toxin. Neurotoxins are injected into the skin to weaken the muscles that cause the appearance of facial wrinkles. The injection is made directly into the muscle. The main areas of neurotoxin injection are inter-brow wrinkles, crow’s feet and wrinkles on the forehead. Dermal fillers do not contain neurotoxins.
They have many advantages over neurotoxins, in particular, botulinum toxin. First, dermal fillers can be used to eliminate various types of wrinkles, facial wrinkles and defects, while neurotoxins are effective only against mimic lines resulting from muscle movement. Dermal fillers last longer(for several months!) than neurotoxins, but their effect can be stopped entirely if the result is not pleasant to you. In this regard, dermal fillers are a great and risk-free option for people making their first steps towards aesthetic therapy.
Hyaluronic acid (HA) is the leading skin tool that helps it retain water, which increases its volume and improves elasticity. HA is natural sugar, which is present in the organisms of almost all representatives of the animal world and in every tissue of the human body.
Hyaluronic acid is produced during the fermentation of bacteria, animals are never used in its production. Thus, this drug is not only useful, but also environmentally friendly.
Fillers based on hyaluronic acid restore damage filling the skin with the HA, increasing its volume and filling wrinkles, mimic wrinkles and cavities. Dermal fillers are low viscosity gels that naturally integrate into tissues and allow oxygen and hormones to flow freely through them. Over time, the injected HA is absorbed by the tissues of the body.
