Fixing sunken cheeks, building up weak chins, enhancing lips, reshaping the tip of the nose, repairing acne scars, filling out deep wrinkles, smoothing out deep wrinkles and smile lines, improving the scars to the point of almost invisibility—all of these are great reasons for dermal fillers, and if it makes you feel better about yourself and increases your self-esteem, well, then why not?
The primary purpose of dermal fillers is often reversing signs of aging, returning the skin to a new, vibrant, and youthful condition. As the baby boomer generation enters into the retirement age, more and more people are looking into enhancing their physical appearances, many times choosing drastic plastic surgery procedures.
Plastic surgery often times stretches out the skin into and can distort a natural, healthy look. Dermal fillers not only work better than normal plastic facial surgery, they are also painless, non-evasive procedures.
Many types of dermal fillers exist. Collagen dermal fillers are most common. There are also calcium hydroxlapatite, hyaluronic acid, and poly lactic acid fillers. All of these dermal fillers have various thickness levels. The thickness of the dermal filler is dependent upon how deep the filler can be injected. Dermal fillers are also having two general classifications: permanent or non-resorbable and under-permanent or resorbable.
Juverderm ultra plus is a treatment that includes Juvederm injectable gel that replaces hyaluronic acid which is a hydrating substance present in your skin and often lost due to time and age. It brings back the moisture with volume; it also helps smoothing the wrinkles and folds of the face. Restyling and Perlane are safe injectable gels that restore the volume and fullness to the skin. Similarly other examples include Radiesse that is popularly used as it is FDA approved derma filler.
For the most part, permanent dermal fillers are not a huge market segment in the world. Currently, most UK dermal filler customers utilize the under-permanent dermal filler, putting up with the drawback of returning for continued treatments, as the under-permanent dermal filler’s effects eventually wear off.
The non-permanent dermal filler treatments certainly dominate the UK market with an almost one hundred percent usage rate by dermal filler customers. It’s been suggested that as more and more people become accustomed to the permanent dermal filler treatments, this trend will reverse. However, if you want a permanent treatment for your skin you can opt for cosmetic surgery that assures you the permanent results.
