Dermal fillers

Dermal fillers are a non-surgical treatment primarily used to contour, shape, volumise and proportion the face, making them a very powerful tool for facial rejuvenation or enhancement.

The most commonly used dermal fillers are made from cross-linked hyaluronic acid. They are temporary and reversible, but the longevity of these fillers is likely to be significantly longer than the generally accepted 6 to 18 months they are believed to last for. It is important to use small amounts only at infrequent intervals to achieve natural-looking results.

Why Dermal Fillers?

Dermal fillers can help you to replenish lost volume and rejuvenate the face, restoring it to a more youthful, plump, natural-looking beauty.

This treatment can be complimented with anti wrinkle injections, Thermage skin tightening and lip augmentation.

What types of dermal filler treatments are available?

(Due to TGA regulations, the brand names cannot be mentioned)

The most commonly used dermal fillers are composed of hyaluronic acid. Hyaluronic acid is found naturally in our bodies, including in our skin, eyes and joints. Unlike our own hyaluronic acid, chains of hyaluronic acid in fillers are cross-linked or bonded together. The thick gel-like consistency of fillers is a result of cross-linking. The amount of cross-linking determines thickness and longevity.

Thicker fillers are firmer as a result of greater cross-linking and can be used to volumise an area. Finer fillers with less cross-linking are generally used in areas where the skin is fine and smoothness is critical, such as around the eyes.

Types of dermal filler treatments

Hyaluronic acid fillers are reversible by injecting the enzyme hyaluronidase. This is useful for the treatment of misplaced or excess hyaluronic acid fillers.

 

Permanent fillers are available, however, these are much less commonly used because they are not reversible unless surgically removed.

 

What areas do dermal filler treat?

Dermal fillers are used in the following ways to treat a variety of issues:

To Reverse the Effects of Aging

☑️ Loss Of Facial Volume: As we age, the fullness of youth is lost, and can be seen in areas like the lips, cheeks, and eyelids. By restoring volume, fillers are able to directly improve a gaunt appearance by filling in hollowed or sunken areas.

☑️ Tissue Sagging: As skin ages, it atrophies so areas like under the eyes, around the lips, the chin, jowls, and the area between the nose and the mouth appear differently.

☑️ Deepening Of Facial Folds And Wrinkles: With age, wrinkles and facial folds become more pronounced.

Fillers are able to erase wrinkles, and folds like:
Nasolabial Folds (Laugh Lines): Lines from the nose to the corners of the mouth.
Marionette Lines: Lines from the lips down to the sides of the chin.
Smokers Lines: Lines on the upper lip.
Corners Of The Mouth: To correct a downward turn.

Hand Rejuvenation – Even if you‘re able to maintain a youthful look, withered hands can often be a tell tale sign of age. Dermal fillers are very effective at rejuvenating the appearance of hands too.

To Improve Your Appearance:
☑️ Lip Augmentation: Fillers can be used to plump up thin lips, rendering them more voluminous and attractive.
☑️ Cheek Augmentation: A gaunt, sunken in look can be improved by the administration of fillers.
☑️  Nose Reshaping: By strategically injecting dermal fillers in the right location, a crooked or disproportionate nose can be drastically improved with fillers.
☑️  Jaw/Chin Enhancement: Strategic injection of dermal fillers can make the face appear narrower and more attractive.
☑️  Brow Shaping/ Lifts: As we age our brow can sag. Dermal fillers are able to correct and reposition to enhance beauty.
☑️  Eyebag Reduction: When eyes get puffy, saggy and baggy, dermal fillers can help.
