WHAT ARE DERMAL FILLERS MADE OF?

FILLERS IN DUBAI | 11 March 2022

Dermal fillers can be either collagen, calcium hydroxyl or hyaluronic acid. In the past collagen fillers were used which caused reactions in some people and so are no longer used. Some fillers are made of calcium hydroxyl apatite but can not be dissolved if needed to be removed for any reason. Most fillers are now made of hyaluronic acid which naturally exists in the skin. Hyaluronic acid fillers produce the most natural results and are the safest as they can be dissolved if needed.

What is dermal filler?

Dermal filler is a substance that can be injected into skin to replace volume loss that occurs with aging or to enhance areas that may be lacking the ideal volume. Most fillers are made of hyaluronic acid. These are the safest and most natural looking and can always be dissolved if needed.

How long do fillers last?

Each brand and make of filler can last a different length of time. Some last around 6 months and others can last 12 to 18 months. The part of the face the filler was placed in can also affect how long it lasts. Filler can wear off more quickly in mobile areas like the lips. Filler that is more dense like those used for cheek bones or jaw line will also last longer.

Is dermal filler safe?

Dermal filler are safe when the necessary precautions have been taken. It is important to use a hyaluronic acid filler that can be dissolved if required. Collagen and hydroxylapatite fillers can not be dissolved and so if they block a vessel there is no easy way of unblocking the vessel. It is important to use an FDA approved filler like Juvederm that has been through vigorus testing and clinical trials to approve its use as safe and effective. It is important to have the treatment performed by a clinician with thorough knowledge of the vasculature of the face.
