As time goes by, facial tissues can show varying degrees of depression and sagging. Even with laser or radiofrequency equipment, it may not be possible to improve these issues. In such cases, fillers can be used to restore lost volume. There is a wide range of fillers available, with different types, brands, and formulas. Consumers who are not up to date on medical cosmetic news may not be able to discern their differences and know what they need.
Different fillers produce different effects, and their safe and effective treatment areas are not the same. All fillers can cause possible side effects, such as pain, redness, swelling, or bruising at the injection site, which usually last only a few days. There are also rare complications, such as blood vessel obstruction leading to necrosis. However, the safety level has greatly improved.
Different fillers are used for different parts of the face. For example, only hyaluronic acid can be used for lip enhancement, and only hyaluronic acid or microcrystalline hydroxyapatite can be used for the nose. Even if hyaluronic acid is used, its hardness should also be considered, as improper hardness can lead to unsatisfactory results. If immediate effects are desired, hyaluronic acid fillers are recommended, but for longer-lasting results, microcrystalline hydroxyapatite or poly-L-lactic acid fillers should be used.
Different fillers require different care steps, especially when injecting poly-L-lactic acid, where proper care is crucial. If patients lack patience, they should choose other fillers. In conclusion, different skin problems require the use of different fillers, so it is best to consult an experienced doctor for advice.
