Sensitive area fillers are injectable dermal fillers that are used to add volume to specific areas of the face, such as the lips, cheeks, and under-eye area. They are made up of a variety of different substances, including hyaluronic acid, calcium hydroxylapatite, and poly-L-lactic acid.
Dermal fillers, also known as soft tissue fillers, are injectable substances that are used to add volume to specific areas of the face. They can be used to enhance the lips, cheeks, and under-eye area, as well as to smooth out fine lines and wrinkles.
There are several types of dermal fillers available, each with its own unique properties and characteristics. Some of the most commonly used types of fillers include:
- Hyaluronic acid fillers: These fillers are made up of hyaluronic acid, a substance that is naturally found in the body. They are popular because they are very versatile and can be used to treat a wide range of concerns. Some of the most popular hyaluronic acid fillers include Juvederm, Restylane, and Belotero.
- Calcium hydroxylapatite fillers: These fillers are made up of calcium hydroxylapatite, a substance that is similar to the mineral found in bones. They are used to add volume to the cheeks and other areas of the face. Some of the most popular calcium hydroxylapatite fillers include Radiesse and Sculptra.
- Poly-L-lactic acid fillers: These fillers are made up of poly-L-lactic acid, a synthetic substance that is similar to the substance found in dissolvable stitches. They are used to stimulate collagen production and provide a more gradual, natural-looking result. Some of the most popular poly-L-lactic acid fillers include Sculptra.
All these types of fillers are usually injected into the skin using a fine needle. The procedure is usually done in the office and takes between 30 minutes to an hour to complete. The treatment is considered safe, but as with any medical procedure, there are risks associated with dermal fillers. It’s important to consult with a qualified and experienced injector to discuss the possible risks, benefits, and suitability of sensitive area fillers for you.
