Dermal fillers are a kind of gel that is injected into tissues and allows replenishing their volume. For example, with age, the volume of soft tissues of the face, especially fatty tissue, is reduced. And we see a face with sunken cheekbones, hollow cheeks. Fillers, however, allow this to be corrected, returning the youthful roundness. In addition, they fill the wrinkles and make them less noticeable. Most often it concerns nasolabial folds, grooves near the mouth and so on.
And, of course, everyone heard about the increase in the lips. Often this is talked about in a negative aspect; however, the competent use of dermal fillers allows you to maintain the individuality and beauty of your lips despite age.

Contouring plastic injection is a non-surgical formation of facial contours in the area of the face and other parts of the body with the help of injectable preparations – dermal fillers. Those agents can be combined with treatment by injections of botulinum toxin type A, mesotherapy, other cosmetic procedures. This is a safe and fast way to improve your appearance.
Fillers of tissues are injected under the skin and with their volume they lift the contour, give the desired form. In cases where fillers are injected into the deep layers of the skin, along with wrinkle alignment, they stimulate dermal cells (fibroblasts), therefore the formation of collagen and elastin by fibers is activated, so the skin relief becomes tender.
All fillers are divided into biodegradable (absorbable) and non-biodegradable (non-absorbable). The last ones are now practically not used (those include silicone, polyacrylamide gel, biopolymer).
Of the biodegradable fillers, the most commonly used fillers based on hyaluronic acid. Such an agent, depending on the specific product, is removed from the tissues within 6-12 months.
More precisely, dermal fillers can also be divided according to the principle of validity and action:
- fillers that replace natural tissues, valid from 3 to 9 months;
- fillers that stimulate the formation of new tissues, retain their effect up to a year.
Therefore, their effect might last six months or a year. Then the procedure can be repeated if desired or necessary. Also, the duration of the effect is influenced by the area of the injection. For example, the gel dissolves faster in the lips.
The choice of components is enormous: from natural substances, obtained from the human body, to artificial, which contain synthetic and compatible with living tissue components.
According to the basis of the agent, dermal fillers can be divided into three main categories:
- collagen fillers
- hyaluronic acid
- calcium hydroxyl apatite.
Collagen is the main protein that forms the skin. It might be in the formation of fibers. It is the the amount of collagen that determine such skin qualities as strength and elasticity.
Collagen helps to fill the volume and smooth wrinkles. In addition, collagen is used to create volume of lips, smoothing wrinkles around the mouth and eyes, wrinkles on the face, frontal wrinkles, and also smoothing the nasolabial folds.
The advantages of injectable fillers based on human collagen can be attributed to their excellent biocompatibility and lack of allergy to it, in contrast to animal collagen. The shortcomings of collagens, both human and animal, is their short duration of effect, a maximum of six months, since during this time collagen fibers have time to resolve.
Preparations based on hyaluronic acid are now numerous, but the most common today are Restylane, Juviderm, Belotero, Teosial. All of them are available at FillerSupplies for purchase and professional shipment. Hyaluronic acid, as already mentioned above, is completely dissolved and is removed from the tissues. On the one hand, this makes the effect of the procedure temporary. But on the other, it significantly reduces the risk of complications. Because this acid is already contained in the human body, a lot of it in the skin, in the lens of the eye, which means that the likelihood of developing allergic reactions, rejection is extremely small.
And another important point – hyaluronic acid has an antidote. That is, even with the occurring of any complications, it can be instantly annihilated by a special enzyme called hyaluronidase. This is rare, but it happens, especially, when clients want to return “original properties” of particular areas, realizing that their wish was not the case.
The principle of its action is as follows: injections of hyaluronic acid fill areas between collagen and elastin (connective protein), restoring the amount of skin lost with age. Nowadays, injections of hyaluronic acid are very popular because they practically do not cause allergies.
Hydroxylapatite is very powerful skin filler. With its help it is possible to get rid of deep wrinkles and “wrinkles of gloom”. This component is also naturally present in the human body.
The procedure is quick (up to 30 min.), performed on an outpatient basis, so it does not disturb the rhythm of one’s daily activities. Results are visible with the minimal invasion and discomfort – local anesthesia is performed before the procedure.
We shall admit also some important restrictions after the procedure:
- It is not recommended to visit the solarium
- Avoid visiting the sauna
- Physiotherapy procedures are not recommended locally
Generally, check with your doctor what restrictions exist in your particular case and what you can not do after the procedure.
