A beautiful and youthful face is very appealing, and as much as it pleases the onlooker, it plays a vital role in boosting one’s self confidence. In this ever growing world of health and beauty conscious people, there is a struggle of looking eternally young, defying the age. However, what is natural and in course of life span cannot be altered. Yet there is a solution to overcome this loss of youthfulness and that is undergoing a treatment of dermal fillers.
What are dermal fillers?
Dermal Fillers, as the term suggests, are something that fills up space and add volume. Dermal fillers in turn are the substances used to fill up the gap under the skin that causes wrinkles and give a more voluminous look to it.
Our body contains a natural protein called Collagen, which is mainly amino acids comprising of carbon, oxygen and hydrogen. This collagen is responsible for elasticity and suppleness of tissues and this gives a wrinkle free look to face when young when collagen production is active in the body. However, with age the collagen decreases and then the skin begins to sag and wrinkle. Hence, it is necessary to replenish the deficit by external means.
Dermal fillers are of many types: natural, Hyaluronic acid based and synthetic.
What is the procedure?
The dermal fillers are injected in the area to be filled, with the help of fine needles inserted under the skin. The dermal fillers add volume to the face and the wrinkles and fine lines are erased from the face, giving it a more clear and youthful look. The skin gets smoothened and thus brings glow to your face. Dr. Harmandeep Sidhu has successfully brought a cheer to many who have visited Athena Skin & Laser in Chandigarh for this treatment.
Being an accomplished dermatologist, Dr. Harmandeep Sidhu takes utmost care to use FDA approved drugs and dermal fillers to treat the patients. The dermal fillers commonly used are Cosmoplast / Cosmoderm that is natural collagen wrinkle filler, Juvederm and Restylane which are Hyaluronic acid based dermal fillers and finally Radiesse and Sculptra which are synthetic fillers.
The effects of these dermal fillers lasts for anywhere between six months to a year.
What are the after effects of the treatment?
Amongst all the cosmetic surgery procedures, wrinkle fillers pose the least risk factor. If done under guidance of an experienced dermatologist, then the process is safe and carefully handled. However, common after effects like redness, slight bruising and swelling at the site of injection may occur. Very rarely, in Hyaluronic acid based filler cases the dermal filler may be seen as tiny bumps under the skin. However, this condition improves with time.
