Injectable fillers and dermal fillers
We get a lot of questions about the difference between injectable fillers and skin fillers. Dermal fillers are injection fillers, and vice versa. These are simply to different names for the same product. These fillers are injected into the skin to adjust the volume and contours of parts of the face, in order to achieve a more youthful look, as desired.
All about collagen
Collagen is very important for healthy skin and is vital for maintaining a youthful appearance. Laser treatments, such as laser resurfacing, photofacial rejuvenation, laser skin resurfacing, all operate on the principle of stimulating collagen in your skin.
Collagen is one of the most important proteins in the human body. It exists in various forms, and is responsible for many functions in the body, including strengthening blood vessels and cartilage formation. However, for those interested in the phenomenon of aging, collagen is responsible for the maintenance and support of skin structure. Collagen, when working with other structural proteins in the skin such as keratin, is directly responsible for the strength and elasticity of your skin.
As we age, the collagen that is naturally present in our skin begins to degenerate. Collagen fibers slowly become stiff and dry. As a result, due to the contraction of the muscles below the skin, it is no longer able to remain smooth and soft but inevitably becomes subject to the formation of wrinkles and furrows. Skin care products and a healthy lifestyle can help slow the formation of wrinkles, while collagen based fillers can eliminate wrinkles instantly. It is important to note that some people may be allergic to collagen, therefore you should consult your doctor to determine if you are a candidate for the procedure.
Applying fillers in cosmetic treatment fills creases and softens wrinkles, creating a smooth contour of the skin, reducing the signs of aging. At Alfa Medic General Hospital we use world-renowned products such as Juvéderm ™, Restylane ® and Radiesse ®, all of which successfully provide you with results that can last from several months to several years (depending on the area, and the individual product used).
Fillers are a great way to increase the size of lips.
Fillers can also be used to restore the volume of lips lost as a result of aging, or to enhance the size of lips to achieve a fuller and more pronounced appearance.
