ANTIAGING TREATMENTS: FACIAL
Permanent Dermal Fillers
Made up of 97 - 98% being water in 2 - 3% of cross-linked
polyacrylamide gel polymer. Polyacrylamide is also found
in soft contact lenses, and tissue implant material.
It is soft and uniform when injected under the skin.
Being mostly water, the body accepts the gel readily
and forms a thin membrane around the implant which helps
to keep it in place; as the gel is very elastic it moves
with all facial expressions.
Containing Bovine dermal collagen plus PMMA microspheres
has been implanted in more than 200,000 patients worldwide.
Is a gel polymer comprising exclusively of networks
of alkyl-imide groups (approximately 4%) and nonpyrogenic
water (approximately 96%). Unlike many other injectable
fillers currently available, Bio-Alcamid™ can
be used to correct small or large areas, including liposuction
deficits. The LIP form is ideal for correcting the lip
outline, being imperceptible to the touch.
Like Outline, is made from absorbable Polyacrylamide
gel with the addition of microscopic, porous spheres
to create a permanent result. Because the microscopic
spheres held within the gel are porous and attract the
pro-collagen molecules right through the pores, they
are stabilised within the tissues and provide the bulk
necessary where there is tissue loss. Evolution is injected
deep within the tissues and is best used for nose to
