What are Fillers?

Fillers are an excellent anti-ageing treatment that helps patients to acquire their previous youthful looks.

They are a type of minimally invasive aesthetic medicine used to add volume, alter the contours of the face, and fill in wrinkles. This helps to add a youthful appearance to the skin. The use of fillers is not just restricted to the face as it can be used in the neck, the hands, and even feet. 

There are three types of fillers commonly used:

  • Temporary fillers
  • Semi-permanent fillers
  • Permanent fillers

Temporary Fillers

  • Collagen-Based Fillers:
    Collagen is a naturally occurring protein that adds strength and structure to the skin.
  • Hyaluronic Acid-Based Fillers:
    Like collagen, hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring substance and primarily used to promote fullness and volume.
  • Calcium Hydroxylapatite:
    This is heavier and denser than hyaluronic acid. This filler is injected deeper, underneath the skin, and does not usually cause immune or allergic responses because the material is usually found in bones.

Semi-Permanent Fillers

Longer-lasting dermal fillers typically contain thicker substances, such as the biodegradable synthetic filler known as poly-L-lactic acid. These types of soft tissue fillers are used to treat deep facial lines and they offer semi-permanent results.

Permanent Fillers

Permanent fillers are made of polymethylmethacrylate (PMMA), which are microspheres that are not absorbed by the body. The filler also contains collagen and is only recommended for thick-skin areas such as the nasolabial folds. 

The type of fillers that a person requires greatly depends on the analysis of their skin type, structure, and issue, and hand. This analysis is carried on during the consultation and hence Dr. Santosh Bhatia gives utmost i
