Different types of the dermal fillers

You can find different types of injectable and dermal fillers in Germany. There are two different types which are temporary and permanent.

Permanent filler: there are some permanent fillers that are not found in the Germany market. Such products cannot be absorbed by the body and this is why they last long. The popular permanent dermal fillers include PTFE or Polytetrafluoroethylene, silicone, ArteFill/ artecoll or Sculptra.

Temporary fillers are the fillers that do not last too long but it is not easy to know how long they are going to last since every patient is unique. Temporary filler is based mostly on the hyaluronic acid. Hyaluronic acid filler can breakdown after sometime which means that the results are going to fade but they can last over fifteen months. The examples are Perlane, Teosyal, Restylane and Juvederm.

At Medical Inn Clinic, the fillers used are temporary ones and they are made by the use of the hyaluronic acid gel to ensure that our clients get the safest, youthful, smooth and most natural results that they can achieve.
