What’s The Best Facial Filler?

23 November 21

Facial fillers are an incredibly popular cosmetic procedure to have. Both men and women opt for this procedure to help give their faces a more youthful appearance. 

Because this procedure became so popular, many DIY kits and pop-up shops have been seen around the country. But how do you know if these places are using suitable dermal fillers? How do you know if they’re safe?

Today we’re going to show you the best ways to get dermal fillers done and how you can avoid running into danger when it comes to low-quality facial fillers! 

 

What are Hyaluronic acid fillers?

Dermal fillers are made of an injectable gel consisting of stabilised, non-animal hyaluronic acid. It’s injected into the lines, folds and tissues in our faces. They’re mainly used to help decrease the appearance of wrinkles and restore the face to a more youthful appearance. 

Dermal fillers are also called facial fillers, injectable implants, wrinkle fillers and Hyaluronic acid fillers. They can also reduce frown lines, plump up the lips, make the cheeks more youthful-looking and correct any scarring caused by acne. 

Most fillers are absorbable, so they only offer temporary results for the patient. On average facial fillers last from 6 months to a couple of years. It all depends on the product used and the patient. 

Some fillers do claim to be permanent but this, unfortunately, isn’t true. 

 

How do dermal fillers work?

Dermal fillers are designed to:

  • Reduce the appearance of unwanted wrinkles
  • Contour the face
  • Create volume
  • Revitalise the skin 

The dermal fillers we use here at Auralia are made from Hyaluronic acid, which is a substance that naturally exists in most living organisms. It can bind to water and acts as a lubricant and a shock absorber in joints. It’s also a necessary part of our bodies for transporting nutrients and regulating the water in our skin. 

When you use dermal fillers with Hyaluronic acid, it boosts the skin’s supply of hyaluronic acid and revitalises the skin. This helps get rid of fine lines and wrinkles, giving your face a natural, softer look. 

After a single treatment of dermal fillers, you’ll instantly be able to see the results. These results will last for around 6-9 months and will give you the natural glow you’re looking for. Dermal fillers are excellent for helping you control your looks as you age over time. 

The most common areas treated with dermal fillers are:

  • Nose to mouth
  • Between the eyebrows
  • The lips
  • The cheeks

 

What are the risks of using dermal fillers?

Like with any procedure, there are risks and side effects when it comes to getting dermal fillers. 

Some of the most common side-effects involved with using dermal fillers are:

  • Redness
  • Swelling
  • Pain
  • Bruising
  • Itching
  • Rash

 

Why is it important to use high-quality fillers

Facial fillers are generally very safe, but this doesn’t mean there aren’t harmful, lower quality dermal fillers out there. 

Here are five steps to ensure your safety when getting facial fillers injected.

1. Talk to a licensed medical professional

They’ll be able to inject the filler correctly and do it in a safe, sanitised and secure medical setting. They’ll also use high-quality facial fillers that are less likely to cause a reaction to your skin. 

2. Avoid using kiosks 

Some of these shopping centre pop-up filler providers don’t stock the highest quality of dermal fillers. We’d recommend avoiding getting your fillers injected outside of a medical facility. 

3. Only buy fillers from a medical provider 

Avoid buying DIY sets online, especially if they’re from an unlicensed provider. It might sound easier to do it at home, but things could go wrong! Plus, you don’t know what’s in the fillers you buy online, not exactly anyway.

4. Always be aware of the risks and side effects

Staying aware of the risks and side effects will help you identify what’s expected and what’s abnormal. This will ensure that if something does go wrong, you can recognise it and correct it. 

5. Check the ingredients

Always check what the ingredients are for the dermal fillers you’re using. If you’re allergic to any of the ingredients, do not inject it into your body, or you could suffer from a severe reaction. 

Remember to always inform your doctor about any medication you’re on too in case it reacts with the ingredients in the filler. 

 

Here’s why we use Stylage!

At Auralia, we only use the highest quality of products for any and all our procedures. This is why we love to use Stylage for our dermal filler procedures. 

Stylage is a highly advanced temporary hyaluronic acid dermal filler with antioxidants. It’s a gel injection that helps fill in wrinkles and give the skin a smoother and more youthful look.
