What are Fillers?

With increasing age, reduction in the capacity of hyaluronic acid which keeps the skin supple and moist is experienced. In addition, the activity of oil glands in producing oil in the skin is reduced. These problems become rigorous with increase in age. Eventually, skin looses the natural fat and youthful smoothness and glow start declining.

Fillers Treatment Procedure

The procedure of fillers treatment is the same almost for all procedures, except that the laser keeps changing and the characteristics of ingredients keep changing.

  1. The Hybrid Laser

Both ablative and non-ablative laser procedures, which involve too shallow and too deep treatments, are combined as hybrid laser. Unlike these two procedures, hybrid laser emits the beams to the right depth, in order to bring luminous and youthful glow, back, while obtaining the best of both wavelengths. It is much precise treatment than the other two procedures and depth is given according to the type of skin. After this procedure, stretch marks, scars, wrinkles and pigmentation can be erased.

  1. The Non-Ablative Laser

Non-ablative fractional lasers don’t disturb the outer skin layer, unlike ablative laser, which removes part of sub-layer and complete top layer. This laser procedure involves emitting microscopic laser beams in thousands, and makes microscopic punctures over the skin and during this procedure, the tissue surrounding the target skin is not disturbed. Since only some of part the skin surface is treated, risks are much reduced and recovery and healing would be much faster. The outcome of the non-ablative laser is stimulation of production of collagen, beneath the skin.

  1. The Ablative Laser

The purpose of the ablative laser is to resurface the skin and diminish wrinkles and correct deep acne scars. The results are dramatic, though short term side effects, like oozing skin, raw or red skin are possible. This laser resurfacing treatment helps the moderate wrinkles and deep lines to be removed.

Gels are filled by injecting beneath skin at the site of extracellular matrix. Injecting hyaluronic acid cosmetic fillers can boost and support the volume of the tissue. Thicker gels are used to place deeper into the skin and for results to be longer lasting. For instance, Voluma and other thicker gels are used for filling the area of cheekbone and the filling is shown for at least 2 years. However, when Restylane, a thinner hyaluronic acid is used, in contrast, is injected to fill the lips and other thinner tissues on the face. Thinner viscosity makes the Restylane to get metabolized earlier, within one year and the results last earlier than thicker.

Cosmetic fillers given to the skin keep varying according to various factors, like degree of thickness of gel, composition of chemicals, duration of effectiveness, etc. Dermal fillers ensure relaxation of expression lines found round the mouth, plump thin lips, balance facial asymmetry and life the cheeks’ apples. Dermal fillers are quite popular and these fillers consist of calcium hydroxylapatite combined with hyaluronic acid.


Fillers are gels that contain hyaluronic acid and these gels can be injected into the skin to restore the volume of cheekbones, cheeks and chin and restore youthful look. The facial fat loss due to age can be recovered back. Skin will look plumper than before, as the fullness and volume are restored back and folds and wrinkles are relaxed.
