Types of Dermal Fillers

What are dermal fillers?

We all wish to look younger and prettier. But with age taking a toll on our skin, we start getting wrinkles and our skin starts getting drier and begins to sag. The more you get wrinkles, your skins sags or get fine lines, the more aged you look. To hold onto to the younger look of smooth skin, we often go through cosmetic surgery where injectable fillers or dermal fillers are injected into the skin to bring back the smooth skin of out younger days. These fillers are soft tissue fillers. Many countries have cosmetic surgeons who ensure that these fillers are injected into the skin successfully to get a rejuvenated look. Fillers in Singapore are injected by experienced practitioners.

There are plenty of brands out there that sell dermal fillers. And so it gets difficult to choose. The most known and trusted ones are: Sculptra, Restylane, Juvéderm Ultra, Teosyal,, Perlane, Radiesse and Belotero. Each of these brands offer something new and different. It is the specialist who will be able to figure out which brand is the best for you. There are both temporary and permanent dermal fillers.

Types of dermal fillers:

You get different types of fillers in Singapore. There are some permanent ones and some temporary ones. The permanent fillers are non-resorbable and have a long-lasting effect. Permanent fillers are polymethylmethacrylate and polyacrylamide. Polymethylmethacrylate is created from a matter of small plastic (methylmethacrylate) beads mixed with bovine collagen. This is then injected right underneath the skin, and in the scar tissue, the plastic matter gets encapsulated. The collagen works to hold the plastic in its place, and this lasts for months after it has been introduced. Temporary fillers are “resorbable” products, which have a life of six to nine months. They are comparatively safer as the products are absorbed by the skin and there is less chance of any side effect.

There are injectable dermal fillers for the wrinkles on your face that act as a better alternative for anti-aging cream. They are injected under the skin to give a fuller look. These are also used on the hands. Collagen is another product that is injected under the skin to restore the shape and texture of the skin. Collagen is a tried and tested product that has been used as a dermal filler for quite some time now.
