If you go to a beauty salon for dermal fillers, you will learn that there are different types of dermal fillers. Of course, you also need to choose the dermal filler that suits you according to your needs, so do you know what types of dermal fillers are available?
1. Hyaluronic acid (HA)
Hyaluronic acid is a substance naturally present in the human body. It helps keep the skin plump and hydrated. HA fillers are usually soft and gel-like. The result of the injection of hyaluronic acid is temporary, usually lasting 6 to 12 months or more, and then the body will gradually decompose hyaluronic acid. Therefore, if hyaluronic acid is used for treatment, repeated treatment is required. Most HA fillers are infused with lidocaine to help reduce discomfort during and after treatment.
2. Calcium Hydroxyapatite (CaHA)
Calcium hydroxyapatite is also a substance naturally present in the human body, mainly in our bones. When calcium hydroxyapatite is used as a filler, the calcium particles are almost microscopic, and suspended in a smooth gel. The consistency of CaHA fillers is usually thicker than that of hyaluronic acid fillers, and usually lasts longer, generally for about 12 months for most patients. According to reports, calcium hydroxyapatite also helps stimulate the production of natural collagen, which is often used to treat deeper fine lines and wrinkles.
3. Poly-L-lactic Acid
Poly-L-lactic acid is a biocompatible (meaning it is safe to use in the body), biodegradable synthetic substance. It has been used for many years in medical devices, such as dissolvable stitches. Poly-L-lactic acid products are technically classified as “collagen stimulators,” as their main mechanism to smooth fine lines is by helping your skin rebuild natural collagen—the filler gel itself dissipates a few days after treatment. Poly-L-lactic acid is typically used to treat deeper facial wrinkles, and results can last more than 2 years.
4. Polymethyl methacrylate (PMMA)
Polymethyl methacrylate (PMMA) is a synthetic biocompatible substance that has been used in medicine for most of the last century. In dermal fillers, PMMA takes the form of "microspheres" or small spheres, which remain under the skin indefinitely to provide continuous support. PMMA fillers also contain collagen, a substance naturally present in the skin that provides structure and firmness.
The above are some common dermal fillers on the market. Generally speaking, hyaluronic acid filler is the product most people will choose, and it is also the most popular dermal filler. If you need to buy hyaluronic acid fillers, we can provide different types of products to meet your different needs.
