About the Facial Line Filling

Aging individuals always have an urge for youthfulness or rather a more youthful appearance. This has led to an increased demand for treatment to reduce facial lines, wrinkles, frown lines, laugh lines and to plump lips and cheeks.

Many treatments are now available to fulfill the dreams of the people who wish to regain their youthful appearance. One such option involves injecting dermal fillers into the facial muscles.

Dermal filler treatment or cosmetic filler treatment involves injecting medical device implants such as soft tissue and wrinkle fillers to help fill in facial wrinkles and give a fuller, plump look. It enhances the appearance of the face and gives it a smoother appearance. Sometimes even fat from other parts of the body are used in dermal filler treatment.

Types of Dermal Fillers For Facial Line Filling

Injectable fillers can be either temporary or permanent. Permanent dermal fillers used for facial line filling are tiny round, smooth, biocompatible plastic particles that cannot be absorbed by the body, whereas temporary fillers are absorbed by the body.

Temporary dermal or cosmetic fillers include materials such as collagen injections, hyaluronic acid gel, calcium hydroxylapatite, poly-l-lactic acid. These fillers are used to correct soft tissue defects such as facial wrinkles, folds, cheek and lip augmentation and plump, saggy hands, temple and jawline. Hyaluronic acid fillers are popular cosmetic fillers used to correct skin that has lost its elasticity.
