Wrinkles and Fillers: Collagen And Other Types
Dermal fillers aren’t one-size-fits-all. There are different kinds of dermal fillers that last varying amounts of time.
Certain types work better in specific parts of the face or to treat certain concerns. Most dermal fillers can be categorized as temporary, semi-lasting, or long lasting. You’ll notice the results from temporary dermal fillers for 6 months to a year. This is an especially good choice if you’re new to dermal fillers and are nervous about what the results will look like. Talk to your doctor to find out whether a temporary filler will be appropriate for you to test out the look and feel of a filler treatment. Semi-lasting fillers can last from 1 year up to 18 months, and long lasting fillers can last for 5 years or more.
Choosing product from Teosyal line
Types Of Dermal Fillers
Juvéderm is a dermal filler that’s made from hyaluronic acid. It’s also infused with lidocaine, which helps numb your skin during the treatment. Our bodies naturally produce hyaluronic acid, but levels of this substance begin to drop as we get older. Juvéderm uses this natural substance to assist in facial rejuvenation. It’s safe and FDA-approved, lasting for up to 12 months. Another kind of dermal filler, Restylane, is made of a substance that mimics hyaluronic acid. Restylane will provide beautiful results for up to 9 months. Doctors often use it for folds and creases around the nose, fine lines near the mouth, and smile lines near the eyes. Teosyal is another dermal filler that works to replace the hyaluronic acid that your skin needs to look youthful and refreshed. Replacing the lost hyaluronic acid gives your skin more volume, smoothing out fine lines and filling in deeper wrinkles. Teosyal has an entire product line, with each product specialized according to the area of your face or the kind of lines that you’d like to have corrected. Teosyal Redensity II, for instance, is wonderful for filling in the area just under the eye (which can grow hollow over time and make you look tired). Meanwhile, Teosyal Kiss is perfect for increasing lip volume and smoothing out fine lines around the mouth. Your doctor will decide which product in the Teosyal line will work best for your individual needs.
Radiesse And Natural Fillers
Radiesse works differently than hyaluronic acid-based fillers, as it helps stimulate your body’s natural collagen production. Radiesse is made of calcium-based microspheres that are suspended in a water-based gel. When the Radiesse is first injected, it provides the initial plumping and filling effect. As time goes on, your body absorbs the gel. After this happens, the collagen that your body has produced takes over, making lines and hollow areas look smooth and full. For individuals interested in a more natural filler option, Selphyl and Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) therapy works with a treatment that is created using the patient’s own blood. Everything happens in the doctor’s office; the blood is drawn, prepared, and used to target any areas that need to be treated. This all happens in the same doctor’s visit, so it’s easy and convenient. Selphyl and PRP therapy create healthy skin and encourage your body to generate natural collagen. Best of all, this treatment is safe for use in any area of the body.
