The BDDE value, or 1,4-Butanediol diglycidyl ether, is a substance in fillers that helps them bond. This process, known as cross-linking, creates more bonds, improving the filler’s shape.
In fillers, it’s important to focus on maintaining their shape. More bonds in the filler lead to better results, and this is achieved by adding BDDE. However, excessive BDDE can cause problems, like allergic reactions. When there’s too much BDDE that cannot bind with Hyaluronic Acid (HA), it remains in the filler. This leftover BDDE can trigger various allergic reactions.
