Facial Rejuvenation – Know More About It
Facial rejuvenation is done to make your skin plump and remove wrinkles and lines. When you are young, you don’t face such problems. But as age advances, frown lines, smile lines, forehead lines, scars and wrinkles develop on your skin. All this happens due to the gap that is present below the skin which makes these lines and wrinkles more prominent. Facial implants are used to fill this gap which makes your skin plump and erase all the defects. But this procedure will have to be repeated after sometime due to absorption of the implants.
The materials that are used for facial implants are fat grafting, collagen, silicone, hyaluronic acid, hydroxyapatite, polyethylene, polymethyl-methacrylate (PMMA), expanded polytetrafluoroethylene (ePTFE) and hydrophilic polyacrylamide. Some materials such as fat and collagen can be used from your own body. Some materials may be synthetic such as silicone and others may be from animals such as bovine collagen. There are two methods for implants whereby some implant materials are injected below the skin while others are grafted with surgery.
After a facial implant, you may face allergic reactions, infections, shifting of implants or absorption after a period of time. But with proper selection and care, you can take care of most of these problems. So you should talk to your doctor about your lines and wrinkles and find out about the implant material that will fulfill your need.
However, currently there is a search for the ideal implant material – in which the procedure doesn’t have to be repeated every few months, which has no allergic reactions or other side effects and which stays in place without getting distributed or absorbed by the body. Such an ideal material will give you a younger looking skin for a long time.
