If loose skin and sunken face haunt you and you seek an immediate nonsurgical solution, then fillers are the answer for you. Fillers, as the name suggests, are used to ‘FILL’ volume on to the aesthetically important areas o face which look sunken because of loss of volume. Also, they are used to enhance the appearance of lips, nose, cheeks, and hands.
Q. What are fillers?
Fillers are basically hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring substance in the body usually found in the skin, tendons, ligaments, etc. In the skin, hyaluronic acid binds collagen with elastin and provides elasticity and structure to your skin. Also, it derives nutrition from the bloodstream and delivers it to the skin, keeping the skin nourished and hydrated.
Q. How do fillers work?
As we age, the skin ‘s capacity to produce collagen decreases. Also, cumulative sun damage breaks the existing collagen and causes loosening of skin. The hyaluronic acid in fillers binds the existing collagen in the skin in a way to provide more strength and elasticity to the skin. Also as they are hygroscopic, they absorb water from the bloodstream and swell to provide volume to areas of the face where it has been strategically placed by the treating doctor. Thus, fillers act like a cushion underneath the skin, offering volume to the facial features that might have lost their shape. In addition, they will also provide better hydration to the face, making it look healthy.
Q. Who are the candidates for dermal fillers?
