As we age, our skin begins to show signs of wear and tear in the form of folding lines, wrinkles, and sagging. While some of these facial features may be the result of positive experiences like smiling, it doesn’t make them any more welcoming to many people.

Nowadays, using fillers to make yourself more beautiful is a popular procedure. There are many types of fillers on the market, and many facilities perform beauty treatments with this method.

The following article will provide some essential knowledge about fillers Toronto, what fillers are, how they work, including what types there are and whether using fillers is really as 100% safe as advertised.

What is dermal filler?

Filler is an injectable medical implant approved for use by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for the purpose of making the face smoother or fuller, including nasolabial folds, cheeks, lips and the back of the hand.

There are two types of dermal fillers:

  • Permanent filler: this is liquid silicone, used in breast augmentation, buttock augmentation, lip fillers, etc. It was once prevalent, however, due to its terrible side effects. As a result, silicone has been banned worldwide since 1991.
  • Non-permanent filler: the main component of this type of filler is hyaluronic acid (HA). Unlike the foreign substance, Silicone, HA has a structure similar to a type of Hyaluronic acid in the human body. Therefore, HA is considered the safest filler in existence. HA will be injected under the skin, thus immediately forming a tissue mass that fills the skin containing wrinkles such as nasolabial folds or areas that need to be enhanced such as chin, nose, under eye filler Toronto without surgery. This effect lasts from 8-18 months, depending on each person.
