Hair fillers: how they work and what they are for
Are you looking for a way to increase the volume and thickness of your hair? Then consider the possibility of using hair fillers. Hair fillers are an innovative treatment option that works by injecting natural or synthetic fibers into areas with fewer hairs to achieve a fuller and thicker look. In this blog post, we will discuss what exactly hair fillers are, how they work, and if there are any potential side effects or risks.
How do hair fillers work?
Fillers help to restore hair after exposure to hot stylers by filling in the voids of the hair shaft, adding extra shine and density. The main components that affect the hair are amino acids, keratin, collagen, and plant extracts. Fillers contain keratin and hyaluronic acid – it all depends on the predominant substance in the product’s composition. Keratin helps to make hair stronger and restores its structure. Hyaluronic acid makes curls more elastic, shiny, and hydrated.
The filler is injected into the scalp using a special device with fine needles. It takes one to three sessions to achieve the desired result, during which several thousand injections are performed into the problem areas. The procedure does not cause pain or discomfort because it uses very thin needles, and anesthetic cream or injections are used for maximum patient comfort.
How to use a hair filler
- Do not use a metal bowl to mix the filler with water.
- Apply fillers only to the hair, avoiding contact with the scalp.
- The hair must be 90% dry before applying the filler.
- Maintain the time indicated on the package.
- When using a thermal cap, reduce the exposure time by 5-10 minutes.
- Rinse the filler thoroughly with warm water without using shampoo or other cleansing products.
What are the potential side effects and risks of hair fillers?
Hair fillers are considered safe and non-surgical, so there is no risk of infection or adverse reactions. However, it’s important to remember that this treatment is unsuitable for everyone. People with sensitive skin might experience redness or swelling, and if these effects don’t subside in a few hours, medical attention should be sought. Additionally, the results of hair fillers can vary from person to person and are not always permanent, so it is important to ensure you’re receiving the treatment from a skilled professional that you trust.
