Mostly all available ingredients are temporary. Collagen, which has been leading the industry for a very long time, lasts only for 3-4 months and needs a skin allergy test first. Fascian, on the other hand lasts for a longer period, but not too much. Theoretically, Fascian works great because of its ingredient fascia lata, strips of the hard covering that surrounds the outer thigh muscle that are cropped from cadavers. It is observed that Fascin lasts longer than Collagen.
A particulated injectable version of AlloDerm is Cymetra, a cadaveric dermis graft, seem to last longer. Most of the people who use it for lip augmentation reported that Cymetra lasts for a shorter period and is expensive in its cost. Company has said that it is supposed to be layered for a period of 2 years or more for best benefits but who can spare for this period of time?
Artecoll, Aquamid, Metacrill and silicone oil (Silikon 1000 and Adatosil 5000, best to use off- label) are a few permanent injectable products. Artecoll is made up of PMMA (polymethylmethacrylate) microspheres that are suspended in a mixture of lidocaine and bovine (cow) collagen. Collagen vector is used to deliver PMMA into the dermis, with the passage of time this collage breaks by the body, it left the PMMA microspheres far behind, encapsulated by the body’s own collagen. These microspheres create the augmentation by the network of your body’s collagen structure.
Some polyacrylamide implants are made up of polymer to hold the moisture like: Aquamid, Bio-Alcamid, and Argiform. These products are in use of making medicine and agricultural products from decades. If you have ever experienced the bluish or clear gelatinous globs that growths the plants, it is more likely to be polyacrylamide.
The whole benefit of an injectable entirely lies in the volume it can give the lips. The poutiness of an implant is significant to compare with the implant itself, which result in subtle defined lips. But in its demerits, this process is likely to be carried out by an experienced injector. This is very important especially in the case of permanent products.
