What ingredients are in facial fillers?
Facial fillers can include a few different type of products, collagen, hyaluronic acid and calcium hydroxylapetite are used in facial fillers to revolumize, rejuvenate the skin and reduce or eliminate wrinkles and lines that cause you to look older. These facial fillers can also be used to raise scar depressions and enhance thin lips; giving them more volume.
Facial filers are compatible with the body because they are made from substances the body already manufactures. They can produce immediate results and will last for many months. Each type has one or more purposes in rejuvenating the skin or replacing lost volume.
Naturally Occurring Substances
Collagen is a natural protein found in the body. It gives support and structure to body parts like ligaments, bones, and skin. In the skin, collagen makes up a good portion of the second layer of the skin, also known as the dermis. The growth of cells and blood vessels is dependent on the fibrous network formed by collagen. These fibers also provide support and structure for the skin. Aging causes a breakdown of these fibers, weakening the structure and lowering the elasticity of the skin. The lost collagen can be replenished with injections, or through heat via lasers, restoring that youthful look as the support structure is restored.
Calcium hydroxylapatite is another substance found in the body. It is a mineral-like compound found in bones. This substance has long been used in dentistry and reconstructive surgery. Since it is biosynthetically produced, meaning no animals or animal products are used, you are less likely to have an allergic reaction to it. It produces natural results for reduction of frown lines and lost volume in the cheek and jawline where skin may look sunken.
