What are dermal fillers?

So moms, today we are going to have a very special talk. 

Ever considered to pump yourself with some dermal fillers? 

Come on. I know you did. We all did. 

Or may be some Botox? 

I’ve been dreaming about Kylie Jenner lips..

Really. 

Some just have it natural…

But if you don’t have it natural, why not create it?

Dermal fillers have evolved dramatically through the years. 

From completely unnatural and permanent to more natural and temporary. Approaches are multiplying. 

But how to be sure what you really want, what you need and what is suitable for your face and skin type? 

First things first 

What are the dermal fillers

Dermal fillers are a naturally-derived or synthetic material that is directly injected into skin with the purpose of plumping that area to the point where the wrinkle, depression, or fold is gone. Depending on the type of filler, the effects can last anywhere from six months to two years; for semi-permanent or permanent fillers, the effects can last up to five years, and there are reports of even longer-lasting results

Synthetic and Natural Dermal Fillers

There are two primary groups of dermal fillers: synthetic and natural.

Naturally-derived fillers (the most widely known is hyaluronic acid) have a much smaller risk of causing an allergic reaction but reactions can occur. Results are immediate but will only last from just three to 18 months (occasionally up to two years) because the filler eventually breaks down, taking the results, for better or worse, with it. Once the filler starts to dissipate you need to go back in and get more filler injected to maintain results. Most people who get fillers will need at least one follow-up injection within a year. 

Aside from allergic reactions, fillers also have risks of lumping and migration, although this happens infrequently. On the other hand, because the results last a short period of time so do the potential problems. 

Synthetic fillers last much longer than naturally-derived ones and are considered semi-permanent though there many who would call them permanent because they really don’t dissipate. The wrinkles start to return only because your face continues to age or you continue to get sun damage due to being lax about protecting skin with sunscreen daily. [7]

As with all fillers, synthetic fillers have risks which are pretty much the same as for naturally-derived fillers except the difference is because synthetic fillers are “permanent” the potential problems can be “permanent” as well and are harder to correct.
