Permanent Fillers vs Temporary

permanent fillers

Dermal fillers come in two types, semi-permanent and permanent. Semi-permanent ones are biosynthetic and are produced without animal products, so there is no risk of allergic reaction. They do not migrate and the effects are minimal. In addition, they can be topped up as needed.

In this section your going to learn:

  • Different types of acid fillers
  • How temporary fillers work
  • Treatment areas for dermal fillers
  • What’s Best For You!

Both semi-permanent and permanent dermal fillers are composed of collagen and PMMA. Because they are biodegradable, they stay in place, making them a good choice for deep wrinkles and acne scars. Because they have a high degree of permanence, you will need several injections to achieve the desired volume.

This type of filler is best suited for patients who want a more natural-looking outcome without the need for a surgery.

Types Of Acid Fillers

Hyaluronic acid and caloric acid are the two most common dermal fillers used to augment the face. They’re both hydrophilic, meaning that they add volume without causing a negative effect on your skin. These fillers are highly effective and long-lasting, typically lasting six to 12 months.

Depending on the treatment and the desired effect, hyaluronic acid fillers can be used to enhance lips and add volume to the chin or cheeks. Calcium hydroxyapatite, which is a more natural-looking substance, is also a popular dermal-filler. It’s a thicker, viscous material that takes a while to break down. However, unlike hyaluronic acid, it does not dissolve as quickly as hyaluronic acid does.

Hyaluronic acid and collagen are both semi-permanent. While they can be biodegradable and absorbed by your body, permanent dermal fillers should be performed by a qualified doctor who is experienced with using them. Besides, temporary dermal fillers are safe and adaptable to different areas of the face, which is why you can choose the best one for your needs. When you’re considering dermal fillers, make sure you have a consultation with a qualified plastic surgeon to find out more about these products.

Unlike temporary fillers, permanent dermal gels can be easily removed or dissolved in the body, allowing the patient to have a smoother look. Because these are biodegradable, they are a good choice for patients who have a traumatic facial injury. The procedure is a painless and convenient option for patients who wish to enhance their appearance.

Both temporary and permanent dermal fillers have the potential to revert their effects. The temporary variety is easy and safe, and it doesn’t require surgery. It is also a good choice for people who don’t want to undergo surgery to restore their appearance. It is a great option for patients who want to improve their looks but are worried about the risks of injectables. The pros and cons of both treatments are clear.

So Just How Good Are Temporary Fillers?

Treatment areas include:

  • Forehead folds

Frown lines between the brows, also called forehead folds, can be treated with dermal fillers.

  • Cheeks

Cheek augmentation with dermal fillers can be used to give the face a fuller appearance, making it seem younger.

  • Nasolabial folds 

In this area of treatment, wrinkles can be removed to give the appearance of a more youthful face.

  • Jawline/chin

Treatment in this area makes the jawline/chin appear sharper and more defined.

  • Lips

Lip enhancement can be used to augment thin lips or add volume to thinning lips.

Temporary fillers are a great option for cosmetic procedures. They are not permanently fixed and can be adjusted as necessary to achieve the desired look. Because our bodies are made of living cells, they are always in motion.

The problem with permanent fillers is that they do not allow for growth and manipulation of facial bones. This can be problematic for the patient. But there are still many permanent fillers, so permanent fillers are an excellent option for patients who are concerned about their appearance.

While these substances can be permanent, they do not have any side effects. In most cases, semi-permanent fillers can restore lost facial volume and contours, and help smooth shallow-deep lines and folds. But, if you do not want to undergo surgical treatment, it is best to opt for the non-invasive method. The process of getting a facelift is not a simple one and it will require time.

Semi-permanent fillers are used to restore facial volume and smooth deep-set wrinkles and folds. They can also be used to enhance cheekbones and add volume to thin and wrinkled skin. They aren’t effective for treating frown lines on the forehead and crow’s feet around the eyes. The most recent permanent non-HA products are Laresse and Novobel.

Temporary lip fillers are the most affordable option for those looking to enhance their lips without having to undergo surgery. Most fillers come in a syringe, so the amount can be controlled easily. You can also get a natural-looking fuller look by having the filler done.

Are Temporary Fillers Right For You?

While the downtime is minimal, most patients recover within a week. Patients are free to resume normal activities after the treatment however it is best to be careful on what type of activities you do. We created a great post on What not to do after lip fillers you can visit to learn more
