Anti aging cosmetic treatments are most popular in the world. These treatments are performed by using fillers and a product extracted from bacteria. This product is injected in the skin and it causes flaccid paralysis. As a result, the skin stretches and wrinkles disappear. Dermal fillers are substances of natural origin which are injected into the skin. This fills out that part of the body and makes it smooth and plump. The effect is that the person looks younger. Many other treatments also have an anti-ageing effect on the person. But nothing gives as instant results as fillers and bacteria product.
First procedure uses the product comes from the bacteria that cause botulism. The effect of the toxin is flaccid paralysis, in which the muscles get relaxed. This product involves the ingredients to achieve the desired result. The doctor injects droplets of the product into the skin and facial muscles. This causes the muscles to relax for a temporary period. The relaxed muscles take up a larger volume. So the skin in the area distends to accommodate them. It removes the wrinkles and fine lines. This product is most usually used on the forehead, corners of eyes and lips, and other wrinkled areas.
Dermatologists use many different substances as fillers. Hyaluronic acid and calcium hydroxylapatite are the most common options. Other than these, fat autografts, organic polymers, bovine collagen, silicone and PMMA are also used. The surgeon will first administer local anesthesia in the area. They will then inject the suitable amount of the filler into the area under the skin. In the case of fat graft, the doctor first extracts the fat from a different part of the body of the patient. Calcium hydroxylapatite and organic polymers like PLLA helps the body restore lost collagen. That is why, even after degradation, they leave the area taut for a long time. Silicone and PMMA are synthetic. So, they act as permanent fillers.
