Role of cosmetic injectables as non-surgical facial augmentation


Aging is a natural process and everybody has to undergo this. The signs of aging can be traced back to the loss of volume; as a result we all experience thinning out of facial tissues causing wrinkles and appearance of fine lines. 

The signs of aging also appear as changes in appearance of our cheeks that appear hollow and development of etched lines around our nose and mouth. 

Replacement of lost volume help smoothening lines and wrinkles, softening creases and achieve reshaping and regaining plumpness of lips as well as improve facial contours with cosmetic injections in Melbourne.

You can restore your youthful look with the help of cosmetic injection treatment using dermal fillers that are injected at the site and recover the lost volume of tissues.

Cosmetic injections and dermal fillers 

The dermal fillers are soft tissue fillers that are made from various gel-like substances obtained from naturally derived or synthetic materials.

Cosmetic injections containing dermal fillers are injected just beneath the surface of the skin to bring back the lost volume, diminish and smoothen lines, reduce creases and enhance facial contours. Cosmetic Injectables prevent the formation of facial lines and wrinkles by temporarily reducing the muscle activity. 

Usually, temporary fillers i.e. absorbable fillers like hyaluronic acid are recommended for reducing moderate to severe types of facial wrinkles as well as diminishing nasolabial folds which are the lines appearing from the sides of nose and extending up to mouth.

Cosmetic injections in Melbourne, containing temporary fillers, are also useful in treating perioral lines that appear as wrinkles around mouth and lips as well as correction of other contour deficiencies.

One of the most significant uses of cosmetic injectables is augmentation of cheeks, chin or jawline shaping as well as enhancing the volume of lips. However, permanent injectable fillers also known as non-absorbable fillers are also used for treating acne scars on cheeks.

Permanent injectable fillers are also approved and recommended for the restoration and correction of facial fat loss among patients suffering from HIV.

Material used for making safe cosmetic injectable fillers

While going for dermal filler treatment, you must always prefer the safest material used for making the dermal filler. When it comes to safe material for cosmetic injectables, a good cosmetic surgeon will always choose and use the most suitable and safe filler, such as:

  • Hyaluronic acid – which is a naturally occurring soft and gel-like substance. It remains present beneath your skin to help keep skin soft, plump and well hydrated. Cosmetic injectables containing HA yield temporary results for 6 to 12 months or a bit longer.
  • Calcium hydroxy-lapatite – is also a naturally occurring substance that is found in our bones and is capable of stimulating collagen production. Hence, it is extremely useful in treating deeper lines and wrinkles. Being thicker in concentration, it is gradually absorbed in the body and stays active for about 12 months or more.
  • Poly-L-lactic acid – is a biodegradable synthetic substance that is extremely safe for use in human body and hence considered highly bio-compatible filler used as collagen production stimulator. It is often used to treat deeper facial wrinkles.
