Dermal Fillers

Dermal Fillers in Modern Medicine

There is still a big gap between medicine and esthetic medicine. Some of the doctors are trying to discredit esthetic procedures saying that they cannot be regarded as the real medical interventions. Main argument for this claim is the fact that cosmetic interventions are not used for particular disease or condition. People only use them for alterations, not for solving a particular problem. Even though medical procedures and drugs are used, there are professionals who will question the necessity of these treatments.

No matter what the case may be, cosmetic procedures are here to stay. As we invest more and more money in our health and appearance, it is understandable that we would expect excellent results. Having this in mind, it shouldn’t surprise us that the people would have such a good opinion of cosmetic treatment.

Introducing Cosmetic Dermal Fillers

Among different solutions that are presented to us, dermal fillers take a special place. Even though this is one of the newest medical interventions, it is quickly rising in popularity. This procedure upholds to our high standards especially when it comes to use of organic matters.

Dermal fillers provide us with new and innovative solutions to facial wrinkles and folds. Unlike for example surgeries, fillers do not affect our organism in such a volatile way. Doctor Medica team refers to them as “drugs of the new generation”. Simply put, individuals have developed a high resistance to medicines and pharmaceutical industry in general. This is based on the fact that companies are constantly trying to sell us potentially harmful drugs that are based on different chemicals. In most of the cases, these chemicals do not sit well with our organic being causing various side effects.

The Concept of using Cosmetic Dermal Fillers

Cosmetic fillers are based on a new perception of medicine. Instead of doing something that can potentially alter our bodily functions, medical professionals use fillers only as supplemental medicines. These drugs are commonly based on hyaluronic acid. This is an important substance within the skin. As we get older, body slows its production resulting in various skin issues. Not only do dermal fillers replenish level of hyaluronic acid, but they are also made from organic substances. Instead of creating drugs that are mixtures of various substances that don’t belong in our body, dermal fillers are based on matter akin to our own. Because of this, body can easily absorb it without leaving any trace.

Technique Involved and Precautions

By using needles, doctors can administer dermal filler. Most of these drugs are used for lips, nasolabial folds and surrounding region. Some types of fillers can also be used for forehead, corners of the eyes, jaw, neck and cleavage. They usually last from 8 months to a several years. Again, it depends on particular product which you are using. Having all this in mind, it is good if you consult your doctor before the treatment and decide which product you wish to use. Skin is usually sensitive after intervention. Patient needs to avoid anything that can irritate the tissue.

Remember – Alcohol, exercise, use of certain creams and lotions, are strictly forbidden after a dermal filling procedure.
