IN PARTNERSHIP: Small, non-invasive procedures are becoming more and more popular year by year.
From anti-wrinkle injections to chemical peels to fat dissolvers, the list of non-invasive procedures is endless. Best of all? There’s barely any downtime.
One of the most well-known and popular minimally invasive procedures is dermal fillers, and while there are huge benefits from not having to go under the knife, you always need to ensure when undergoing any treatment, you’re armed with all of the information you need. This is where selfologi comes in, the region’s number one destination for cosmetic treatments online.
Emirates Woman spoke to the selfologi experts to ensure you have all of the information you need when it comes to fillers.
What are dermal fillers?
According to the selfologi experts, fillers are a minimally invasive treatment that helps smooth fine lines and add fullness, particularly helpful around when you hit your 30s and 40s and skin starts to lose elasticity and collagen. Dermal fillers can be injected into different parts of the face including the lips, cheeks and jaw.
However, when it comes to fillers it’s not a “one size fits all” case, there are many different levels of filler. As selfologi explains, “deep injections are designed to create volume, while superficial injections hydrate and plump the skin”.
The different types of filler
There are also many different types of fillers, most of which are dissolvable which can be absorbed into the body over time.
Per selfologi, the four most common types of filler are hyaluronic acid, calcium hydroxyapatite, poly-l-lactic acid and collagen.
Firstly, hyaluronic acid is the most popular of the four and is naturally found in the body, helping to retain water. Calcium hydroxyapatite is also found in the body in the bones and is widely used to add shape to the face such as in the cheeks and the jaw.
Meanwhile, poly-l-lactic acid is synthetic but is known to help reverse the signs of ageing, for example, fine lines and wrinkles.
Finally, collagen is the longest-lasting of the four most popular fillers outlined by selfologi. The experts state it “helps restore your skin’s collagen levels and smooths wrinkles and scars… [and] usually lasts up to five years”.
