Filler (the English word Fill-to fill) - in cosmetology refers to injectable skin fillers that are injected to fill deep wrinkles, folds and give volume to different areas of the body.
Fillers are divided into 3 main groups:
- Synthetic (non-biodegradable) fillers are manufactured from silicone and paraffin, which are synthetic materials. Discovered in the 70s, these elephants are never absorbed. Over the years, it migrates (changes its location) and can lead to various deformities.
- Biosynthetic fillers are more modern fillers synthesized from synthetic materials that are maximally suitable for human skin. These fillers can remain in the body for up to 3 years. These include "Ellans" containing polycaprolactone, "Radiess" containing hydroxyapatite and "Sculptura" containing synthetic poly-L-lactic acid.
Because these fillers are synthetic, they are very thick and do not spread well into the surrounding tissues.
- Natural (biodegradable) - contains collagen and hyaluronic acid and is completely absorbed in 6-12 months.
Since these fillers are more plastic, they can be applied to any area and sit well on the skin, completely eliminating defects. This group includes zyderm, zyplast, juviderm, surgiderm, restilain, teosial, etc.
