injectable fillersInjectable fillers are at the foundation of the cosmetic dermatological industry.  They are the go-to for doctors in a lot of their cosmetic work, whether it is for treatment of the neck, forehead, chin, cheeks, or lips.  Fillers provide that sought after roundness and fullness that so many people crave but cannot seem to get with other treatment methods.


Like any industry, the market for injectable fillers is always changing.  While the current state of injectable fillers is quite strong indeed, the future looks bright.  The future looks bright because a number of new items are going to hit the American market.  These new products have already shown to be effective in other markets and can provide solutions to volume issues that the current batch of available injectable fillers cannot provide.


More Natural, Less Chemical


The beat in the industry is that chemicals are out and natural ingredients are in.  This is an echo of the general consumer attitude around all kinds of products.  Organic food is now a solid force in the consumer habits of most Americans.  All natural creams and ointments are also on the rise.  These are all representative of a general social attitude that embraces natural ingredients over chemical additives.  It is important to know what you are putting into your body, because all too often they people are consuming things that contain unhealthy ingredients without their knowledge.


This trend is now affecting the dermatological industry.  A quick glance around the newer products will reveal this to be the case.  A number of items already have hyaluronic acid as a main ingredient, to give just one example.  Experts in the industry predict that this kind of thing will only increase in the coming years.


Closer Attention To Skin Laxity, Less on Volume Loss


The scientific community is producing more studies on skin health.  Many of these studies give insight into what really comprises the skin.  From a dermatologist’s point of view, one of the key take-aways from this research is that treatment should focus more on laxity along with volume loss.  It is known that wrinkles emerge because the skin stops producing collagen and elastin.  So a lot more products need to be produced that can bring more collagen and elastin into the skin.


In Sterling Heights there are clinics that offer other types of treatment that can complement Botox® injections and fillers to focus more on skin laxity.  This is the way of the future.
