The PMMA permanent filler works by using 20% to 30% of tiny PMMA microspheres. The PMMA microspheres have been suspended in 70% to 80% of highly purified collagen gel. Once the collagen gel is injected in the skin the gel breaks down to allow the body to produce natural collagen that subsequently fills up the space caused by the wrinkles, scars, furrows and folds. Many experts consider the PMMA filler to be 100% permanent and use it to treat medium wrinkles as well as deep wrinkles.

The PMMA permanent filler used with hyaluronic therapy is more popular in comparison to the dermal filler used with collagen replacement therapy. Hence, many plastic surgeons prefer using hyaluronic therapy in comparison to collagen replacement therapy. The hyaluronic therapy provides considerable results within the first three months of the treatment and within 3 to 6 months the patient can experience the full effects of the treatment.

The effects of the PMMA permanent filler will last for at least five years without requiring any touch-up dosage in comparison to the semi-permanent dermal fillers. Hence the PMMA permanent filler provides one of the most convenient ways to reduce wrinkles, furrows and folds on the face to experience glowing and youthful skin.
