Dermal Fillers: Polyalkylimide
Here’s how it works
Whether used to plump up lips or treat deeper wrinkles and depressed scars, polyalkylimide dermal filler is a widely used semi-permanent filler. It’s also used to enhance cheekbones and jawline, replacing facial volume that is lost during the aging process. Another common use is for HIV-positive patients who have facial lipoatropohy, or facial wasting, a side effect of the antiretroviral medications used to treat the disease.
What’s unique about polyalkylimide is that it can be molded into place. One injection can insert a large amount, and if needed, it can be removed. Other advantages of using polyalkylimide filler include the fact that it’s biocompatible – minimal reaction with human tissue; there is no allergy test required and it won’t interfere with X-rays.
The costs involved in this procedure include facility fees, medical tests, cost of the polyalkylimide filer, Dr. Jimerson’s fee and any medication or any additional treatment that may be required. Our staff will provide you with a detailed cost estimate for your procedure.
