Cosmetic Injectable Options in Sydney
Gone are the days when women used Botox as their go to treatment for enhancing their youthful looks. These days’ dermal fillers are the in thing. These fillers can help restore a more youthful look to the face.
Unlike Botox which freezes the muscles, these fillers work by covering up the amount of collagen lost by the facial muscles. Some aestheticians even use fillers along with Botox to enhance the look of their client’s facial features.
The following are a few interesting facts on dermal fillers.
People have been using dermal fillers for more than a century
In the 1800’s Robert Gersuny, an Austrian surgery came up with the concept of fillers. He tried to use mineral oil in the form of Vaseline and paraffin as substitute tissue for people suffering from facial deformities. This remained a popular practice until 1920 until all controversy broke loose. It was tragic that the Duchess of Marlborough, one of the most beautiful women to date suffered severe complications y having hot paraffin injected into her nose.
Some tissue fillers are all natural
Hyaluronic acid and collage are the two most common dermal fillers available in the market. Hyaluronic acid is produced naturally in the body. The same applies for collagen. Both have been approved by the FDA to be used as dermal fillers. The fat from a person’s body can be used as a filler as well. For example fat from the love handles is extracted and used in places which require fillers.
Some fillers contain synthetic material
Some dermal fillers may contain non organic synthetic materials like silicone or calcium hydroxylapatite. These materials are not broken down in the body, so these are somewhat like semi-permanent fillers.
Fillers are temporary
There is no fixed time period for how long a filler might last. It all depends upon the kind of filler being used. The effects can last anywhere from a few months to a few years. However, it is said that when fillers are used in conjunction with Botox can increase the longevity of the fillers.
Don’t worry about looking over done
Most people believe that if they make use of fillers hey would end up looking like over made up Barbie. However, that is not the case. Fillers can help you look younger and when used in proper amount can actually add to the attractiveness of your features.
Filler can help stimulate collagen growth
As we age the amount of collagen produced by our body starts to decrease. Though it can’t increase the amount of collagen but it can certainly stop collagen levels from being depleted.
Men are going for dermal fillers as well
Men aren’t too far behind women when it comes to injecting dermal fillers. Most men are turning to cosmetic injectable to retain their youthful looks. The products in these fillers are however different from those used on women. Men prefer a more chiseled look that’s why instead of softer silicone fillers, sculptra is used.
