Filler (Part 1) – Hyaluronic Acid (HA) Filler

What is filler?

 

Injectable filler is a soft tissue filler injected into the skin at different depths to help fill in facial wrinkles, provide facial volume, and augment certain facial features. Most of these wrinkle fillers are temporary because they are eventually absorbed by the body.

For HA filler, the main ingredient is hyaluronic acid, which is also found in the human body.

How do you assess volume loss and what is it?

Volume loss of the face is one of the earliest signs of aging, but it could be genetically predisposed too. Everyone is born with different face and bone structure, same goes with the distribution of fats and ligaments. Therefore, some us might have dimples and some do not.

Volume loss is basically, loss or shrinkage of the fat compartments in our face. As we age, the ligament holding or supporting those fat compartments will be loose. Therefore, some fats might actually “migrate” to other parts of the face or leak through the ligaments. This is also due to the bone reabsorption of the face when we aged. Therefore, some of us might have `sagging area due to the leaked fats and loose skin.

By injecting fillers, into those spaces, we can actually boost the compartment or simply put : to plump up the compartment by filling it up the empty spaces and by filling up the empty spaces it can stretch those weakening ligaments as well. And finally looking younger.

How do Fillers work?

Hyaluronic acid which is the main component of filler is a sugar molecule that exists naturally in almost all living organisms. The main function of it is to bind water so it acts as a lubricant and cushion in a flexible area of the body.

It is very important for the transport of nutrients and in regulating water balance in skin. By boosting your skin with fillers, it will revitalize and add volume to the area instantly. This diminishes the appearance of lines and wrinkles and gives a natural appearance to the face. The fillers will act as a gel in the specific area and boost that specific area.

What is hyaluronic acid?

Hyaluronic acid (HA) is a sugar which is naturally found in our skin that holds water and helps keep it hydrated and plump. This substance within our bodies holds a thousand times its weight in water to not only retain all that moisture in our skin and joints, but also prevent all that moisture from evaporating into the air, therefore it is also known as Hydrophilic substance.

Throughout aging, these substances will slowly degrade and disappear from our bodies. Some recent studies have even shown that injecting filler (HA) into pre-disposed areas will help to stimulate collagenesis and cell repair as well.
