Cosmetic facial injections also known as “dermal fillers” are a non-surgical procedure used to smooth out facial wrinkles and to help with the effects of aging.
A range of dermal fillers are used to inject into areas of the face. There are two types of fillers, these are; biocompatible fillers and synthetic fillers.
Biocompatible fillers usually come in the form of collagen or hydroluronic acid. They are a semi-permanent option as they can be reabsorbed by the body and normally last between 6-12 months. The are counted as the safest option between biocompatible fillers and synthetic filers as they can be reabsorbed.
Synthetic Permanent Dermal Fillers
Synthetic are much longer lasting than biocompatible fillers, however they are more likely to be rejected, move around or form hard lumps under the skin, which can lead to an infection.
Dependent upon the type of dermal filler you opt for, there can be a variation of problems that arise from the procedure.
Despite dermal fillers being a non-surgical procedure, just as many risks and problems can present themselves during and after the procedure.
