Dermal fillers, also known as injectable implants, soft tissue fillers, lip and facial fillers, or wrinkle fillers are medical device implants approved by the US FDA for use in helping to create a smoother and/or fuller appearance in the face, including nasolabial folds (the lines extending from the sides of the nose to the edges of the mouth), cheeks, chin, lips, and back of the hands.
Here are different kinds of substances that dermal fillers are made from. These include Hyaluronic acid, Polymethylmethacrylate (PMMA), Poly-L-lactic acid and Calcium hydroxylapatite (CaHA). All these types of fillers are approved for use by the US FDA. However, in India, including Kolkata, only Hyaluronic acid fillers are approved, which is why these are the ones we will discuss in further detail.
Hyaluronic acid is a natural substance that is also available in the body under normal circumstances. It is present in the extra-cellular matrix and found throughout the body. However, around 50% of the hyaluronic acid that is present in the human body is in our skin. Its normal function is to retain water and it helps in hydration. Dermal fillers should only be injected by a trained aesthetic dermatologist or surgeon.
They are injected under the skin to help you gain volume, support certain structures in your face and also enable contouring of the face. The areas under the skin where a dermal filler is injected include: Into the dermis (which is a layer of the skin) Subcutaneously (under the skin) Into the supra periosteal region (just above the bone) Once injected, the inert filler stays in the region till it is metabolized by the body (6-18 months, depending on the individual as well as kind of product injected). They hence, pull the connective tissue structures at desired angles or simply add volume. Since the change they bring needs to be precise, it is very important for your specialist doctor to understand the dermal planes and predict properly how the fillers will affect your appearance.
FDA recommends that Dermal fillers are to be done by only board-certified Dermatologists or Plastic surgeons. We assure you that the dermatologists at La Derma are highly trained at injecting and are specifically selected based on these abilities. Dermal fillers are therefore a safe option for enhanced facial aesthetics and can be explored by you with confidence.
