When it comes to aging, this process can be easily observed through changes happening to our skin. As we get older, wrinkles and folds start appearing all over the face reminding us that the skin is no longer able to produce important, natural substances important for preservation of this tissue. Similarly to other bodily functions that changed due to aging, we are unable to restore skin to its previous state that would allow it to create necessary matters. However, we can use treatments such as medical fillers to supplement this matter and somehow compensate for all that we had lost.
Medical or dermal fillers are one of the most advanced esthetic treatments nowadays. Although the procedure itself is really plain and simple, drugs are very sophisticated. As previously mentioned, theses medicines are able to restore substances such as collagen and hyaluronic acid to our skin thus restarting previous processes. Most of the modern drugs, such as Juvederm Smile, are based on hyaluronic acid. This is a crucial component within the skin which keeps molecules of water within dermis. By keeping them in skin, body is able to use substances from water in order to hydrate the tissue. At the same time, they also increase overall volume of the skin. So, as long as there is hyaluronic acid, tissue will retain its youthful appearance.
Juvederm Smile is based on organic components extracted from animals and bacteria. Scientists are able to get purified substance similar to that which exists within us. Needless to say, natural substances are much better for us because our organism has potential to dissolve them completely. Also, given that similar components already exist within the organism, body will not fight the drug. In terms, there will be no surface irritation or inflammation of any kind. Because of this, entire treatment can go smoothly.
Doctors and medical professionals are always fascinated with efficiency of these drugs. Simply put, this is one of the easiest types of procedures in medicine. It usually takes 20 to 30 minutes for doctor to inject content of the drug into patient’s skin. Medical fillers are usually used for lower regions of face. However, there is also a possibility to use them for upper regions, as well as neck and cleavage. Still, fillers remain the dominant treatment when it comes to lip enhancement. Doctors from Doctor Medica recommend using fillers together with botox so that the patient can completely alter his appearance.
Dermal fillers are a temporary solution. For example, Juvederm Smile can last up to a year within the body. Some other drugs can persist even longer, lasting for a couple of years. This is really good news because this means that substances within the drug are biodegradable. Because of that, patient shouldn’t expect any type of long term complication caused by medical filler treatment.
Given that this is a facial treatment, minor facial irritations can be expected. However, they are usually mild and they will disappear within a week. Side effects are caused by treatment itself (or better yet needles used for treatment) while the drugs leave no trace on the body.
