Dermal fillers are implants classified as medical devices by US FDA and are used in aesthetic procedures such as anti-aging, aesthetic corrections and facial contours. Dermal fillers are used for anti-aging practices for removal of wrinkles and folds in nasolabila, volume loss in chin and cheek area, lines and wrinkles around eye. Dermal fillers considered in the report include absorbable dermal fillers and non-absorbable dermal fillers depending upon their bio-degradability after injecting inside the dermal area below skin.
Based on the material used, there are five types of dermal fillers considered in the report which include hyaluronic acid (HA) based, poly-l-lactic acid (PLLA) based, calcium hydroxylapatite (CaHA) based, collagen based and polymethylmethacrylate (PMMA) based. Among those five types considered first four are absorbable while PMMA is non-absorbable. All the absorbable fillers are ingredients naturally present in the body and hence get broken down after certain period of time (3 to 24 months). The absorbable fillers may be animal derived, plant derived, bacteria derived or chemically derived. The non-absorbable fillers are chemically derived and last for up to five years. The quantity required for achieving the desired result varies, depending on type of filler and application area.
