More, and more, women are beginning to see the many benefits of dermal fillers. There has been growing interest around it in Asia, especially Singapore and Korea. However, many people still aren’t knowledgeable about it, and so don’t appreciate the benefits of dermal fillers. If you are one of these people, read on.
Dermal fillers are synthetic compounds that can easily dissolve when injected in the skin. Hyaluronic acid is a typical example of such compound. Cosmetologists use dermal fillers when fixing up defects and irregularities on the skin. There are different types of filler, and they are classified based on where they are used on the skin. When used on the nose, it is called a nose filler. On the chin; chin fillers, and on the lips; lip fillers.
How Dermal Fillers Work
When we advance in age, our skin loses lots of fats and collagen. Collagen and body fat help keep the skin firm. When they deplete, the resulting effects are wrinkles, bumps, and saggy skin. If there could be a way of replenishing the lost fat, the skin would become fresh again. This is exactly what fillers do.
Different materials are used in the making of dermal fillers. Hyaluronic acid is the most commonly used. Other materials like paraffin and calcium hydroxylapatite are sometimes used as alternatives. Normally, a single application can last you somewhere between 12 to 18 months.
How Safe are Dermal Fillers?
The use of fillers to correct defects on the skin is called non-surgical rhinoplasty. Like everything else, non-surgical rhinoplasty has its own set of drawbacks. However, they are minimal. Common side effects include bruises, skin reddening, and swellings. It is rare for any severe side effects to develop from fillers and they are generally considered safe.
Nose fillers are used for straightening up crooked, saggy and bump ridden nose. Doctors also use it to add extra length to the nose of patients looking to make their nose longer.
It takes about 15 minutes to undergo a complete nose filler treatment. This means you can have your nose treated during lunchtime at work.
To reduce the chances of any side effects developing afterwards, avoid cardiovascular activities at least a day before the treatment. Also, avoid pressing your fingers against the treated spot for 3 weeks afterwards.
Chin fillers are used to by doctors to balance the facial outline of a person. Used In the right amount, chin fillers can make your, otherwise, flat chin more pronounced. The best part is that there is absolutely no need for surgery.
A chin filler is mostly composed of silicone or polyethylene. When it is injected in the chin it will plump up any wrinkled or thin skin. The result: an enhanced facial appearance you can be proud of.
Depending on the injectable material used and dexterity of the doctor, one treatment can last 6 months or more. You can choose to make the treatment temporary or permanent.
Lip augmentation is the use of fillers to give the lips a plump appearance. It is both quick and safe. It is rare to see side effects develop after treatment, so there is little to be worried about.
On average, dermal filler treatments cost around S$500. This is unlike plastic surgery which can costs thousands of dollars. Enhancing your look with dermal fillers is not only cheap – it is perfectly safe. Why not give it a try today.
