As we age, the aging signs reflect on our skin. The idea of graceful aging has given rise to several anti-aging treatments.
Anti-aging is a holy grail and has taken the aesthetic industry by storm. Luckily, next-generation non-invasive cosmetic treatments, largely dermal fillers, offer subtle refreshment and youth without having us go under the blade. Dermal fillers are a low-risk and high-in-demand option to get the upper hand on aging signs. Unlike Botox®, dermal fillers re-plump the skin, lips, or cheeks and reconstruct the contours instead of freezing them in place, resulting in more natural rejuvenation.
Types of Dermal Fillers
There are different types of fillers. Few fillers use artificial substances, whereas many others work on the “autologous fat grafting” principle. They use body fats by removing them from one body part and injecting them into the face.
There are several types of dermal fillers:
- Hyaluronic acid (HA), a naturally occurring acid in our skin, gives the skin volume and keeps it hydrated. Results from HA injections usually last six months to a year. Restylane® and LUMIFIL® are two commonly used HA fillers.
- Calcium hydroxylapatite (CaHA) fillers contain a substance that occurs naturally in our bones. These fillers are used primarily for wrinkles.
- Poly-L-lactic acid (PLLA) is a naturally occurring substance that helps our body create its own collagen. Aestheticians use Poly-L-lactic acid (PLLA) fillers to remove deep wrinkles from the face.
- Polymethylmethacrylate (PMMA) fillers consist of collagen and tiny balls that remain under the skin after the healthcare provider injects them. These balls give our skin volume and keep it firm.
LUMIFIL® is a premium 3D cross-linked HA dermal filler with Lidocaine that re-invigorates, hydrates, and rejuvenates the face adding long-lasting, natural-looking volume. It is a reliable product with quality ensured by HCCL™ (Highly Complete Cross-Linking) technology
