Dermal fillers are the additives that help in reducing the facial lines and restore the overall fullness and volume of the skin of an aging person. The gradual aging process in human beings is accompanied by the gradual loss of the subcutaneous fat which together with the facial muscles working closer to the skin surface makes the lines on the face look more apparent to other people. This is commonly described as wrinkling. The stretching of the skin can be countered with the dermal fillers that can then be used for softening the creases on the face and also the wrinkles from the concerned individual’s skin. This is also used to cosmetically improve the overall appearance if the sunken scars as this treatment are used for the reconstruction of the contour deformities on the face. This can also be used for decreasing or even completely removing the shadow of the lower lids on an individual’s face.
Major types of dermal fillers
Voluma, Juvederm, Volbella and Volift are the major types of cosmetic dermal fillers that are made of hyaluronic acid which is a naturally occurring chemical substance found in human skin. Hyaluronic acid is being extracted in order to produce the dermal fillers that are then used by people who are naturally losing hyaluronic acid with increasing age. This makes up your skin to appear younger with fewer wrinkles.
Voluma and Juvederm are FDA approved dermal fillers and these were created for the usage in the cheek area by assisting in correcting the volume loss due to increasing age. Voluma specifically smoothens away the wrinkles and folds in the lower areas of the face. Volbella is effective in systematically restoring the volume of the lips while defining the contours of the lips. Volbella is meant to ensure that the lips are able to maintain the natural feel and look. This dermal filler is also quite sustainable. The Volift is indeed the newest addition of the hyaluronic acid dermal fillers which provide the desired versatility in cosmetic treatment. This is collectively used for the cheeks and the chin as well as the jawline area in order to reduce the natural aging process by restoring those natural-looking wrinkles and contours which appear on a person’s face with increasing age.
The overall procedure of dermal filling includes a series of steps. Firstly, there is a facial assessment and mapping that is used for the proper analysis of the facial appearance, the existing skin tone and also the determination of the area which is to be augmented. Next, the area of the face which is to be augmented is to be identified and then cleanses with the antibacterial agents and injection of local anesthesia. The next step is the actual injection of the dermal fillers which are then coupled with the proper massaging and then close evaluation of the concerned area in order to determine the requirement of the additional filters at the site. The final step of this particular procedure is proper cleanup and recovery. If the results of the injection are satisfactory, the markings which had appeared because of the injections are completely cleansed off and then an ice pack is applied on the treated area for the reduction of the swelling that has occurred due to this cosmetic treatment. This also alleviates the discomfort which has occurred due to the treatment. The area of injection can be tender for almost forty-eight hours.
The cosmetic treatment with the dermal fillers is becoming highly popular as the treatment is effective and time proven. So, more and more people are adopting this treatment.
