Dr. Garima further shared with HT Lifestyle a complete guide to understanding the role of fillers in achieving your desired aesthetic goals.

What are Dermal Fillers?

Dermal fillers are injections that are a non-invasive alternative to cosmetic surgery as they insert lost collagen in the human skin, giving a fresh appearance besides slowing down a number of age-related issues like wrinkles, acne scar treatment, facial line correction, skin spots and damage caused by exposure to UV rays. It’s important to know that fillers are not permanent and the duration of their effect and impact on the appearance varies from one individual to another. This usually depends on factors like the type and quality of filler being used, treatment area, thickness of the filler and skin type of an individual.

What makes them popular?

1. Save time unlike a conventional surgical cosmetic procedure

2. No recovery time needed

3. They can be dissolved if the individual is not happy with the results

4. Visible and instant effect

5. Doesn’t interfere with the make-up

Here are some of the most commonly used fillers:

1. Collagen Fillers: As the human body grows older, it tends to lose collagen leading to sagging skin, facial lines, wrinkles and a dull appearance. Collagen fillers combat these by providing a more soft, smooth and brighter skin.

2. Hyaluronic Acid Filler: This is known as a ‘skin hydrator’ because of its ability to make the skin appear more plump, radiant and fresh. It is popularly used to enhance the appearance of lips and cheeks.

3. Polyalkylimide: Polyalkylimide is a synthetic filler which is safe for the human body and is generally used to enhance jawline and cheekbones to give a sharper and cleaner appearance.

4. Polylactic Acid: Polylactic acid gives a more enhanced effect by penetrating the skin deeply and treating wrinkles and fine lines. It’s popularly known as a stimulator as it catalyses collagen production.

It’s always a good idea to consult a doctor in case you notice any eruptions, swelling, bleeding, redness or any other side effects. It is therefore essential to consult an expert before making any decision not only to ensure safety but also to make sure that everything is in the right hands.
