Dermal fillers are becoming increasingly popular as a means to help reverse the changes associated with aging.
The procedure is known for its natural appearance, which is why the body over time absorbs the fillers. This is why many people need to repeat the procedure after extended amount of time to maintain the ideal shape and desired look. The exact amount of time that the effects last depends on various factors, such as the position of fillers and the filler material.
The results variate depending on the desired look you want to achieve, the underlying structure of the tissue, its structure and volume. Dermal fillers have developed in the most recent time, so now the choice of the filler itself also has impact on the visible results.
Because the goal is to return the dermis to its original youthful state, dermal fillers can give a more natural appearance than surgical face lifts. Dermal fillers are used to reduce or eliminate wrinkles, raise scar depressions, enhance lips, and replace soft-tissue volume loss.
The first type is absorbable fillers which are previously mentioned and are used in order to reduce moderate or more severe wrinkles and skin folds. These fillers are used in facial wrinkles or nasolabial folds which are located around mouth or wrinkles in the same area.
Other fillers are those used to augment lips or other parts of the face such as the chin and cheeks.
Non-absorbable fillers are also often used type of fillers for the face especially area around nose and mouth. It can be used to treat acne scars.
Other forms of fillers may be used to reduce signs of fat loss on the face, especially in HIV-positive people.
Lastly, a special filler form is used for correcting contour deficiencies, such as wrinkles and acne scars.
