Many patients turn to dermal filler injections when they feel unsatisfied with their wrinkles and wish to have a smoother face.
Types of Fillers
Different wrinkles call for different fillers such as cheek and lip fillers, and as such, there is a variety of dermal fillers which can be used.
Hyaluronic Acid Derivatives
Fillers such as Juvederm™ and Restalyne™ are used to increase lips and fill fine wrinkles. Like several other fillers, they are not permanent and usually last between four and six months. Alongside this, they can be undone with the enzyme hyaluronidase.
This is a human collagen usually used for facial wrinkles. It is preferred for those with hypersensitivity, as an allergic reaction is unlikely.
This filler involves taking fat from a person’s own body and then injecting that into their face. It is a more complicated process, but it could last a lifetime if done carefully.
The most common complication which can happen is an allergic reaction to the fillers. An allergic reaction tends to manifest as swelling, redness and pain.
Other complications involve:
- Possible infections
- Blockage or vascular occlusion
- Nodules and granulomas, also known as lumps and bumps due to an allergic reaction
Should I Get Fillers?
Fillers provide a youthful and plump complexation. Dermal fillers create a subtle difference that often wears off over time, which is why many choose to get them done.
For the best result, it is recommended that patients refill every 3 to 6 months. It is also recommended that patients do not smoke or actively tan during this time, as this can have adverse effects on the fillers.
