Guide to using Dermal Fillers

One thing that people, especially women, care about is their beauty and appearance. They spend much money on beauty products and they always have time to go to a salon or a spa for their “needs”. They always see to it that their hair, make-up, and nails are nicely done. There are even some people who would go through needles just to make sure that they have what they want with their faces and bodies. One of the processes that will require you to go through needles is injecting dermal fillers. Dermal fillers are widely used right now and people are going crazy about it.

Let us learn more about dermal fillers through Women’s Health and Fitness’s article below.

Dermal fillers: your complete skincare guide

Traditionally, fillers were used to poly fill wrinkles, but now it has become commonplace to sculpt and lift the face with long-lasting and permanent dermal fillers.

What can fillers do?

“Superficial fillers known as skin-boosters can be used to improve internal hydration of the skin and rejuvenate texture and quality to provide a smoother complexion,” says Marco Andrea Peruzzo, a senior cosmetic injector at Clinica-Lase.

Though our skin produces water-binding hyaluronic acid naturally, we produce less and less of it as we age. There are also synthetic fillers such as Sculptra and Radiesse, which stimulate collagen formation in the dermis, so require less touch-ups, yet generally cost more per visit. Certain fillers are ideal for sculpting face shape, while others are ideal for filling lips without the trout pout effect. Read more here!

Those were useful information. If you are planning to have dermal fillers, it is smart to know about the process, the results, and the risks. You cannot just go in there are have them injected right away. You have to be cautious enough because what you will go through is a really sensitive and risky process. For additional information, we actually have different types of dermal fillers. The American Society of Plastic Surgeons will tell us more detailed information about these.

Types of Dermal Fillers

There are several different types of dermal fillers. The most common types are:

Calcium hydroxylapatite

Calcium hydroxylapatite is found naturally in human bones and is a mineral-like compound. It’s often used to:

  • Moderate-to-severe creases such as nasolabial folds, marionette lines and frown lines
  • Enhance fullness of the cheeks and other facial contours
  • Improve volume in areas of facial wasting such as can occur in HIV-positive people taking certain medications

Calcium hydroxylapatite is biosynthetically produced, which means that no animals or animal products are used. This lowers your risk of an allergic reaction and no skin testing is required. This type of dermal filler is known to produce a very natural result, doesn’t migrate and side effects are rare. This dermal filler was first used in dentistry and reconstructive surgery and has a long safety record. Read more here!

See? Knowing the types of dermal fillers alone is really helpful. You get to know what is good, what is not, and what you really need. Now, let us focus more on one area that could be injected with dermal fillers, the earlobes. It is true that as we age, many parts of our body sag and many women are concerned of this.

In an article written by Tatiana Bido, we would get to know the super easy way to rejuvenate sagging earlobes.

The Super Easy Fix to Rejuvenate Aging, Sagging Earlobes

As we age, the loss of elasticity and collagen in our skin causes sagging, and not just on your face. Your earlobes can show signs of aging too, becoming droopy and wrinkly, which can make you appear older or make it harder to hold in earrings. Although saggy earlobes may not be your first concern in the fight against aging, earlobe rejuvenation (or a Lobe Lift) is a quick and easy fix that restores lost volume to aging, damaged earlobes, so you can wear heavy or dangling earrings again.  

 “For those in their 40s or older, the collagen of the ear may deteriorate to the point that the earlobe looks flabby and wrinkled,” explains West Palm Beach, FL, dermatologist Kenneth R. Beer, MD. “In these patients, I inject fillers to restore a more youthful, less shriveled lobe.”

A good candidate for this procedure is anyone who is unhappy with excessive lines and wrinkles on their ears or those who have stretched out earlobe holes. “In general, women who are used to wearing larger earrings or who’ve had significant sun exposure and simply want to have less wrinkled lobes are all good candidates for this procedure,” says Dr. Beer.

Good to know! We don’t have to worry about looking old anymore with those sagging earlobes. Having our appearance modified or trying to conceal old age is not wrong. If you want things done to our body, then go for it as long as you know your responsibilities and you know everything that is being done to your body. Remember that going through this process is not easy and it requires you to be cautious. Everything must be planned out right and you must choose a trusted and professional doctor to do things for you. It is really important because everything lies in his/her hands. Once mistakes happen, it will be too late to turn back now. If you like to look for a good aesthetic clinic with good dermal fillers, you can look for IYAC Aesthetic & Anti-aging clinic
