Dermal fillers, also known as injectable fillers offer immediately results that are more cost effective than surgical procedures. Dermal fillers are made of hyaluronic acid and the effects on wrinkles and lines are temporarily depending on the type of injectable filler used. Normally it ranges from 4 to 8 months. Dermal fillers are used to plump up fine lines, wrinkles, some scarring, and augment the lips by restoring volume and definition. Risks are minimum, but bruising and swelling is common for the first 7 to 10 days.
The dermal injectable filler procedure
Before treatment the skin is numbed with a cream containing a local anaesthetic. The filler is then applied via injections. The process should take about 30 minutes
Types of injectable fillers:
There are four basic types of fillers.
- Temporary or absorbable injectable fillers:
Temporary fillers are synthetically produced in laboratory and are derived from Hyaluronic acid. Hyaluronic acid is a substance (complex sugar) that exists naturally in the body. Its most important function is to carry and bind water. Hyaluronic acid delivers nutrients and hydrates the skin to "plump" a targeted area and temporarily remove wrinkles. Because hyaluronic acid is naturally present in human skin, it does not require a pre-treatment skin test.
Temporary Dermal Filler Injections were developed in Stanford University in California and have been used in countries with cosmetic procedures since the 1970's. Specially treated bovine protein is used. Although main structural protein does not normally cause any negative reactions of the immune system tests are carried out to test product tolerance before treatment.
- Semi-permanent biodegradable injectable fillers:
Semi-permanent biodegradable injectable fillers are derived from hyaluronic acid and a silicone derivative, which usually last 3-9 months depending on the product and the amount used.
- Permanent or non-absorbable injectable fillers:
Permanent Dermal Filler - Aquamid® is a permanent filler where the volume of the implant is given by water not from a solid product. Aquamid™ contains about 2 - 3% of a polyacrylamide gel and 97 - 98% water. The cross-linked polyacrylamide forms a real gel, which does not contain any solid microparticles. This makes it soft and uniform. It is injected under the skin where it can't be seen or felt and remains in place permanently. Being mostly water, the body accepts the gel readily and forms a thin membrane around the implant which helps to keep it in place; as the gel is very elastic it moves with all facial expressions.
- Cell harvesting
Cell harvesting is also known as Isolagen. A tiny sample of skin is taken whilst you are under local anaesthetic. From the tiny skin sample the cells naturally divide into millions of new living fibroblasts. The number of skin cells develop exponentially. After 6 to 10 weeks, they reach a population of tens of millions and are then injected back into your skin, again under local anaesthetic.
Recovery time from injectable fillers
You will probably experience a few days of slight swelling.
The risks of dermal fillers
It is generally accepted that temporary fillers containing hyaluronic acid offer the lowest risk as hyaluronic acid occurs naturally in the skin and cartilage and is less likely to cause any allergic reactions. Risks of temporary fillers can include a small risk of allergic reaction to the filler or bruising of the treated area. People with a history of cold sores may experience a recurrence after treatment, although this can be minimised by the use of antiviral medicines. Semi-permanent fillers are more risky with about 5% of patients suffering an allergic reaction resulting in severe swelling. Permanent fillers are the most risky injectable as problems can occur if the filler moves to another area resulting in bumps and lumps.
