How Filler Treatment Works

Dermal filler works by developing or raising certain areas of the face. This procedure is commonly used on the slackening section and looks empty. The workings of how the procedure at works depend on the type of filler used. The options include:

– Hyaluronic acid – The most common type of dermal filler used. Hyaluronic acids work by pulling liquids into certain areas that need to be removed. This material is used in famous filler brands such as Captique, Juvederm, and Restylane; the effects of this type of filler generally last 9 months to 1 year.

– Fat graft – Fat transplant or also known as autologous fat is a procedure to remove fat from other body parts of patients in the target area. Because the injected filler is made from genuine human fats, the effect of this procedure can last up to several years.

– Polymers – Filler brands such as Sculptra use synthetic polymers that can be degraded naturally. This is another long-term option, with a two-year effect.

– Calcium hydroxylapatite – This is the main ingredient in Radiesse, another popular filler brand, which can last up to 12 months.
