In An Artificial Dermal Filler as Good as a Natural One?

Pretty smiling woman with clean skin in white fluffy sweater Of the many treatment options available to slow or reverse the signs of aging in our faces, dermal fillers are not only among the most common, but many of them also seem to balance being highly effective while still being very convenient, minimally-invasive and able to fit into our busy schedules.

However, there are also several types of dermal fillers, each having specific characteristics and traits that not just make them more suited for certain dermal conditions than others but may also be part of how many decide on exactly which filler to receive.

Though BOTOX® as an aesthetic treatment option is often considered a dermal filler, BOTOX®, and similar injectables do not address lost volume or add tightness to the skin from adding below the surface. Instead, they block the muscle contractions that cause wrinkles and fine lines.

Of the dermal fillers, two categories are often used to separate the available types – natural and artificial. Natural fillers replace or stimulate the production of molecules naturally created by your body. These include hyaluronic acid and collagen production, which tend to slow down with age.

The natural dermal fillers available today have been proven very successful. However, although some may help boost the natural production of the molecules they are replacing, this is not always the case, and repeat treatments are needed.

Artificial dermal fillers, on the other hand, are treatments that use a molecule or compound that is not naturally found in the body. While these are still just as safe as natural fillers, they do not encourage or affect the body’s natural production of hyaluronic acid.

Sculptra, for example, it’s a compound of poly-L-lactic acid microparticles that fill in lost volume from below the skin. This formulation is not absorbed by the body as fast as most natural fillers and can often provide great results for up to two years after treatments.

If you are considering dermal fillers to help reach your aesthetic goals, the expert staff at the Medspa in Westlake and Northwest Hills, TX, can work with you to develop the perfect aesthetic treatment plan by choosing the best fillers for your body and goals.
