Cosmetic fillers have become increasingly popular for their ability to rejuvenate and enhance facial features, providing a more youthful and refreshed appearance.
However, with the vast array of fillers available, patients must navigate through a myriad of options to make informed decisions that prioritize safety and efficacy.
In this comprehensive guide, we aim to educate patients about dissolvable and non-dissolvable fillers, as well as the potential risks associated with unknown fillers from online/unreputable sources.
Additionally, we'll explore the widely used Hyaluronidase, also known as Hylenex, as a reversal agent in case of emergencies.
Dissolvable fillers offer a temporary solution to volumizing and lifting facial contours.
Made from biocompatible materials, they provide natural and long-lasting results. Dissolvable fillers are ideal for patients seeking non-permanent enhancements and the flexibility to adjust their treatments over time.
Hyaluronic Acid (HA) fillers are among the most popular dermal fillers due to their safety and versatility – which is why that’s our filler of choice at Bespoke Rx.
HA is a naturally occurring substance in the body, making it biocompatible and easy to integrate into the skin. HA fillers offer plumping effects, hydration, and the ability to target specific areas, such as lips, cheeks, and under-eye hollows. The results are natural-looking and can last from several months to over a year, depending on the specific product used.
Non-Dissolvable Fillers and Unknown Fillers
Non-dissolvable fillers, such as silicone or permanent polymers, should be approached with caution due to their permanent nature.
The results are irreversible, and potential complications can be challenging to address.
Using unknown fillers from online or unreputable sources poses significant risks, including potential contamination, adverse reactions, and unpredictable outcomes.
Take the hyaluron pen, for example, which we covered extensively here. It was originally marketed as an inexpensive, needleless and painless alternative to lip fillers. These pens use force from pressurized air to create microscopic holes through which hyaluronic acid filler is pushed into the skin for fuller lips.
As such, the way the pens use uncontrollable pressure to force the injectable into the lips with no precision should be of great concern.
These pens and other similar substances may not be approved by regulatory agencies and may lack safety data, leading to severe complications.
In Case of Emergency: Hylenex
Even with meticulous planning and the use of reputable fillers, complications can rarely occur.
In cases of emergency or dissatisfaction, Hylenex, also known as Hyaluronidase, can serve as a valuable tool for reversing the effects of HA fillers.
Hylenex works by breaking down the HA filler, enabling a faster resolution of undesirable outcomes. Having Hylenex on hand provides reassurance for patients and injectors alike, offering a safety net in the rare instance of complications.
Prioritizing Safety and Choosing Reputable Providers
When considering cosmetic fillers, it is essential to prioritize safety and work with reputable providers. Bespoke Rx ensures that all treatments are administered by skilled and experienced medical professionals who use only FDA-approved products.
By choosing a trustworthy clinic, patients can minimize the risks associated with unknown substances and ensure that treatments are performed in a sterile and controlled environment.
In the realm of cosmetic enhancements, it is vital to understand the distinctions between dissolvable and non-dissolvable fillers. While dissolvable fillers offer a temporary solution with natural-looking results, non-dissolvable and unknown fillers from online/unreputable sources carry considerable risks and may lead to permanent complications.
Hyaluronic Acid (HA) fillers stand out as a safe and versatile option, providing plumping effects and hydration with the ability to reverse undesired outcomes using Hylenex in case of emergencies.
