What are dermal fillers and which one is best for me

Injectable implants, or dermal fillers, are cosmetic products that can be used to contour the face and body without surgery. Most commonly, fillers are a viscous and plastic suspension that is injected under the skin to correct localized age-related changes.

Dermal fillers are approved for use by the FDA and are therefore very popular. In the United States, more than 3 million people use dermal fillers each year.

Types of dermal fillers

Dermal fillers are classified by the substance they are based on:

Hyaluronic Acid

  • HYALURONIC ACID Hyaluronic acid is a natural component of our skin's connective tissue. It is the softest of the dermal fillers and is commonly used to smooth fine lines and wrinkles, replenish volumes of tissue, and remove acne scars. Hyaluronic acid fillers provide a fast but relatively unstable result. The results achieved will last for 6-12 months. Also they are usually chosen by those who want to use injectable dermal fillers for the first time.

Poly-L-Lactid Acid (PLLA)

  • PLLA Poly-L-lactic acid is a substance that has been used to make surgical suture materials for more than 40 years. Dermal fillers based on it are most commonly used to smooth deep wrinkles and deep natural folds on the face, as well as for some tightening of sagging tissue. PLLA is very good at stimulating collagen production in the skin. Therefore, these fillers do not have a very strong immediate effect, but the results achieved will last for 2 years.

Calcium Hydroxyapatite (CaHA)

  • CALCIUM HYDROXYAPATITE (CaHA) Calcium hydroxyapatite is a substance normally found in our bones, but it is synthetically produced for use in fillers. Calcium hydroxylapatite fillers are designed to target deeper wrinkles and skin folds. They are also commonly used to improve facial contours and restore cheek volume. In addition, CaHA stimulates the production of natural collagen, creating the skin's own internal framework. Results last for approximately one year.
NB!

Botulinum toxin based products are not dermal fillers. Yes, they have a similar effect in terms of wrinkle control, but they have a completely different mechanism of action. Botox and other botulinum toxin products cannot restore lost tissue volume or eliminate scars.

Which dermal filler will be best for me?

First, you will need to decide where you want to remove wrinkles and add volume to the soft tissues. You will also need to choose the type of filler. The most commonly used fillers today are hyaluronic acid-based fillers.

Hyaluronic acid fillers for the face

Hyaluronic acid fillers for the face

Hyaluronic acid can vary in viscosity. The viscosity is determined by the number of internal bonds between the hyaluronic acid molecules. The more there are, the more viscous the product will be. The lowest viscosity HA fillers are used for the thinnest skin, such as around the eyes. There are 4 different types of skin areas on the face.

Hyaluron Pen is a modern and highly effective needle-free tool for hyaluronic acid facial injections. It delivers the hyaluronic acid filler into the epidermis using only high pressure. This takes only 0.2 seconds and significantly reduces the level of discomfort. The Hyaluron Pen also reduces the risk of bruising and swelling.

We have also prepared a Hyaluron Pen Set for you, which contain all the components you need to start injecting fillers immediately.

PLLA-based fillers

BeauХ and BeauY

BeauХ and BeauY is a PLLA dermal fillers developed by Meamo Co. Ltd. These are improved analogs of the well-known Sculptra line of fillers. Our products are very versatile. You can use these cosmetic dermal filler injections for the face, neck, décolleté, and even the hands. BeauХ and BeauY are very effective in removing wrinkles, filling in missing tissue volume and actively stimulating the formation of the skin's own collagen framework. This is why the results of using our dermal fillers last up to 2 years!

A 200ml bottle of BeauХ contains 150ml of PLLA and 50ml of HA. Due to the presence of hyaluronic acid in the composition, BeauХ perfectly moisturizes the tissues. Therefore, this product is best used on dry skin.

BeauY contains only highly purified PLLA. As a result, it stimulates collagen production slightly more than BeauY, has a longer-lasting effect and is more suitable for skin with signs of aging.

AestheFill and PowerFill

These products are full analogues of the well-known Sculptra line of dermal fillers. AestheFill is used only in the face, but everywhere from the delicate periorbital area to deep nasolabial folds. 

PowerFill is intended for use on the body. It is injected into the arms, décolleté, mammary glands, genitals, buttocks, thighs. PowerFill is excellent for restoring soft tissue volume.

The results of AestheFill and PowerFill can last up to 2 years because these fillers intensively stimulate the formation of the skin's internal collagen framework. They also have an additional lifting effect and are therefore particularly effective in gravitational tissue prolapse.

How do I use dermal fillers step by step?

How do I use dermal fillers

1. Remove makeup.

2. Disinfect the skin with any antiseptic liquid.

3. Dry skin with clean and dry make-up sponges.

4. Apply local anesthesia with gel, cream or spray.

5. Make injections of dermal fillers.

6. Repeat antiseptic treatment.

7. Apply soothing and anti-inflammatory products to the skin.

Dermal fillers may used in courses. You may need 3 to 5 sessions of injections. The interval between sessions should be 3 days to 2 weeks. The exact number of procedures depends on the type of filler and the area where you need to add volume or correct lines.

Remember that dermal filler injections should only be performed by a physician or professional cosmetologist!

What happens after the dermal filler injection?

Swelling

Small bruises under the skin

Numbness or redness

Thickened areas

Immediately after the application of dermal fillers in the injection area, you may experience:

All of these effects are temporary and will go away on their own within a day or two. To speed up recovery and reduce discomfort, you can apply an ice pack to the injection area. Also, try to avoid strenuous physical activity for the next 2 days.

When will I see results?

Most injectable dermal fillers work immediately. This means that you will see the full effect as soon as the swelling and redness of the skin subsides. With PLLA-based fillers, the full results will build up gradually as new collagen is formed.

How long will the results last?

The results of dermal fillers can last from 6 months to 2 years. The specific length of time depends on the type of filler, the location of the injection, and your activity in the area of the injection. For example:

How long will the results last

The results of a hyaluronic acid-based filler will fade more quickly than the results of a PLLA filler.

Exercise and strenuous physical activity stimulate blood circulation, which shortens the duration of the fillers.

The effect of injections in the lips fades more quickly than injections in the nasolabial folds, etc.
