The low-down on Dermal Fillers

August 09, 2017

If you are looking for a simple way to restore the youthful appearance you once had, Dermal Fillers could be a great option.

What are Dermal Fillers?

As we age, the volume of collagen in our bodies decreases and we begin to lose facial volume. This allows lines and wrinkles to appear and make us look years beyond our age.   While the ageing process is inevitable, dermal fillers provide an effective way of reducing the appearance of lines and wrinkles by. We also use Dermal Filler to re contour the face and improve its shape.

The treatment works by injecting Dermal Fillers into targeted areas in the skin, filling out lines and furrows, providing a younger and softer appearance. The ingredients in Dermal Fillers bind with the water in your skin to restore elasticity and fullness. , Cheeks, sags, lost volume, contour and marrionette lines.

Dermal Filler Treatments

Depending on the areas you want to target, there is a range of Dermal Filler treatments available.

One of the most common Dermal Filler treatments is for the lips. This treatment can be used to create fuller more luscious lips, to accentuate the lip line or to create a more defined cupids bow by adding volume to targeted areas of the lips.

Another application of Dermal Fillers is to provide a non-surgical method of nose augmentation. While nose augmentation has been traditionally performed using surgical techniques, Dermal Fillers provide an alternative treatment option to correct minor defects with the shape of the nose. With Dermal Fillers, you can effectively build the bridge of the nose, improve the shape and the height of the tip of the nose, even out a nose bump, or correct small defects which have resulted from nose surgery (rhinoplasty).

If your skin is in need of a pick-me-up, Skin Boosting Dermal Fillers can also be used to improve the overall quality of your skin by boosting hydration levels. During this procedure, small amounts of hyaluronic (water loving) Dermal Fillers are injected into the dermis to hydrate the skin, improving texture and clarity and resulting in fresher, smoother and healthier skin.

What to expect following Dermal Filler treatment 

Dermal Filler treatments can generally be performed quickly (in as little as 30 minutes) and with only minimal discomfort. 

In the first day or so following a Dermal Filler treatment, it is common for patients to experience some redness, swelling and tenderness. These reactions usually resolve quickly, however it can help if you apply a cool compress to the treated areas to relieve any swelling and bruising.

We recommend that you avoid strenuous exercise, drinking alcohol and exposure to extreme hot and cold temperatures during this time, as these activities could open blood vessels and increase bruising or swelling. Avoiding the use of cosmetics, moisturisers and products containing AHA’s, BHA’s and Retinoid during this recovery period is also recommended. You should also avoid facials, facial waxing or laser treatments for 10 to 14 days following treatment.

Because our bodies eventually absorb Dermal Fillers, they are not permanent and will gradually fade away over time, typically lasting between six to nine months.

Depending on your individual assessment, your physician will usually recommend an ongoing treatment plan to avoid making dramatic and sudden changes to your appearance, ensuring you always look your best. If you do find that you’re unhappy with the results following treatment, the fillers can also be dissolved to reverse the effects of the treatment.
