Beginner's Guide to Dermal Fillers: Enhance Your Beauty Safely

At Infinity MedSpa Glastonbury, we understand the importance of looking and feeling your best. Dermal fillers are one of the leading solutions we offer to combat the signs of aging. Here is your beginner's guide to dermal fillers: enhance your beauty safely.

What Are Dermal Fillers?

Dermal fillers are designed to restore lost volume in specific areas of the body, like the cheeks, and augment areas such as the lips by adding volume. One significant contributor to fine lines and wrinkles is a decrease in collagen and Elastin, a process that experts say can start as early as 25 years old.

These fillers have gained traction as a popular, minimally invasive, and relatively low-risk option for combatting signs of aging. It’s important to differentiate dermal fillers from neurotoxins like Xeomin and Botox®; while they address similar skin issues, their functions are distinct.

Types of Dermal Fillers

Dermal fillers vary in composition and serve different purposes. The most common types include:

1. CALCIUM HYDROXYLAPATITE (CaHA): Found naturally in human bones, brands like Radiesse® use this mineral-like substance to enhance volume in facial areas and plump lines. Derived biosynthetically, it’s vegan-friendly and has a reduced risk of allergic reactions.

2. HYALURONIC ACID (HA): A prevalent filler in the U.S., HA is naturally present in our body. Brands such as Juvederm®, Restylane®, and others use this versatile substance for a range of skin treatments.

3. POLY-L-LACTIC ACID (PLLA): A biodegradable synthetic substance, PLLA, helps the skin rebuild collagen. Sculptra® is a well-known brand using this substance, known for its collagen-stimulating properties and longer-lasting results.

4. POLYMETHYLMETHACRYLATE (PMMA): A semi-permanent solution, brands like Bellafill® use PMMA to treat deeper lines and wrinkles.

Your Journey with Infinity medSpa Glastonbury

At Infinity MedSpa Glastonbury, your journey begins with a personalized consultation. Our dedicated Injectors are certified specialists in various filler treatments, notably including tear trough fillers.

During the procedure, a topical anesthetic may be applied for comfort. The fillers are then carefully injected in the correct area and depth. While the procedure is swift with minimal downtime, some might experience temporary bruising or swelling, which usually subsides within days.

Recovery and Side Effects

Post-procedure recovery is typically quick, with most patients resuming their usual activities within a week. While swelling and bruising are the most common side effects, it’s essential to be aware of rarer side effects like allergic reactions and infections. Always ensure your treatments are handled by certified professionals like ours to minimize risks.
