Silicone rubber is a kind of highly active conductive material, which belongs to amorphous material. It does not react with any aqueous solution or solvent. It is non-toxic, tasteless and stable in chemical properties.
Silicone rubber itself is not toxic, but some silica gel will be mixed with harmful additives, the main component of silica gel is silica. Silica gel has strong adsorption capacity and can dry human skin. If silica gel accidentally enters the eye, it should be washed with a large amount of water, and see a doctor as soon as possible.
Silica gel is the most common filling material for cosmetic and plastic surgery institutions. It can be used as a solid silicone gel for augmentation rhinoplasty and long chin. Silicone gel can be used for breast augmentation and buttocks. But what harm can these materials fill to human body?
Silicon is a chemical element and the most abundant element in the earth's crust. Its chemical complex normally consists of sand, rock and glass. Organic silica gel is considered to be the most suitable material for implanting. All human bodies have some organic silica gel. Organosilicon is widely used in medical devices, pharmacy, food and other fields.
It has been more than 50 years ago to use silicone materials in daily consumer goods. Many products used in daily use include silicone, such as hair spray, sunscreen lotion and moisturizing cream.
Silicone can also be used as the outer membrane of pacemakers and heart valves, thus playing a protective role. Silicone is used in other medical devices, such as artificial joint, catheter, urinary system, maxillofacial implant, tissue expander, prosthesis, etc. Silicone products are biocompatible, reliable, stable and easy to sterilize. Therefore, whether the medical device products are implanted into the human body, silicone materials can be applied.
Silicon material has a long service life, which is one of the most suitable prosthetic materials for human implantation. However, silica gel has a certain service life in human body, so it is recommended to take it out as soon as possible within the safety period.
