The term Micro Filler has been popping up in more places lately, but what is it exactly? Well, that depends on whether you’re asking about an injectable treatment or a skincare product.
What is a MicroFiller Product?
StarSkin, that very trendy producer of beauty masks, has an at-home treatment pack called the “Micro Filler Mask Pack.” The pack comes with something that looks like a syringe, but there is no needle and it doesn’t break the skin. It contains an exfoliating serum that you apply to your face and massage. Then you apply the beauty mask. They call the serum a “hyaluronic micro-pyramid filler” because it contains the same ingredient that is used to make dermal fillers.
Due to TGA regulations, we are not allowed to publish the name of this ingredient, but in addition to being the main ingredient in dermal fillers, it also occurs naturally in your skin as a moisture-protecting barrier.
What is a Micro Filler Treatment?
Some cosmetic and laser clinics have begun to offer a treatment called “Micro Filler.” They claim that it’s a new way to treat your skin for fine lines, dull appearance, uneven tone and crepey texture by distributing micro injections of dermal fillers, vitamins, minerals and antioxidants into the surface layer of your skin. It can be used to treat the face, neck, décolletage and hands to bring out a healthy, dewy appearance.
While it may have a new name and a new trending status, very similar treatments have been around for a long time. They may also be known as “beauty boosters” or “skin boosters” because they’re a bit like a booster shot for your skin.
Rejuvenation Clinics of Australia has been delivering an equivalent treatment for a number of years under the name “Glow Factor Injection” because it gives your skin a healthy glow.
How Does It Work?
As mentioned above, the main ingredient in Dermal Filler is a substance that occurs naturally in your skin’s barrier to protect the health and moisture of your skin. By evenly distributing tiny amounts of filler across the skin, it helps to hydrate and plump the surface layer.
Glow Factor Injections also include vitamins, antioxidants, amino acids and minerals that help soothe the skin and assist in cell regeneration. The result is improved texture and tone in your skin.
At Rejuvenation Clinics of Australia we use a specialised injection gun to deliver micro amounts of filler, vitamins and minerals to many points at once, which enables more even distribution than a syringe. At the same time, the micro needles stimulate a micro-healing response in the skin which promotes new collagen and elastin formation.
While the treatment is very effective and injections are small, it absolutely must be provided by a qualified doctor or nurse. Results tend to appear after 7-10 days.
