What Are Fillers?

There are two groups that make up the fillings, which are soluble and permanent. Fillers with melting times between these two groups can be called semi-permanent fillings.

Melting fillings melt completely between 6 months and 2 years. This group is mostly used to eliminate fine wrinkles in the face area and can be applied superficially fillers. It has water retention feature. It is found naturally in the human body and living things. The job of hyaluronic acid is to carry and retain water to the skin.

semi-permanent fillings

Examples of semi-permanent fillings are Poly L-Lactic acid and calcium hydroxyapatite. The melting time of these fillers after application is more than 2 years. Poly L-Lactic acid accelerates collagen production and the volume effect increases and reaches its highest level within 6 weeks. Calcium hydroxyapaptite, on the other hand, is a substance that has very low allergic properties, has no water-holding effect and has little effect on collagen production. There is no increase in volume over time. In lip applications, they are not preferred because they are opaque and become visible and feel as a superficial palpable particle.

Permanent fillers

Examples of permanent fillers are Silicone and Polymethylmethacrylate (PMMA). These fillings do not dissolve and may need to be surgically removed. PMM triggers collagen production, but it has the capacity to cause allergies. Therefore, allergy test should be done before application. This group of substances can cause negative consequences such as infection, displacement and granuloma formation. Again, this group has the feature of being used in large amounts in regions that need more volume. It is used in areas where thick skin has camouflage feature.
