Dermal Fillers

Dermal Fillers | Injections

Dermal fillers are cosmetic treatments given through injections, usually in a registered  clinic. They do not involve surgery. They help reduce wrinkles and other facial lines, thus restores volume and wholeness in the face.

As we get older, our face loses subcutaneous fat. The facial muscles get closer to the skin surface due to the loss of fat. Therefore smile lines and frown lines become more visible. With age our facial skin stretches, this adds to this loss of facial volume. Other factors that affect the facial skin includes how much we are exposed to the sun, our heredity and lifestyle.

Dermal fillers are temporary treatments for facial aging but for long-term results on-going treatments will be necessary. It is important to be in the care of a certified practitioner who is trained and prepared to deal with any complications that may occur during or after the treatment.

Are there any risks using Fillers?

Dermal fillers are often very predictable and severe complications are uncommon. Although there are some potential risks that vary depending on the specific type of filler used, this includes: infection at the site of injection, skin redness, bruising, bleeding from the injection site, swelling, and skin rash with itching.

Maintaining overall health and healthy, strong skin with appropriate products and skin treatments will improve the results and longevity of dermal filler treatment.

Types of Dermal Filler

The cost of dermal fillers vary depending on various factors such as, the qualification and expertise of the practitioner, the type of procedure used, time and effort required by the treatment and location of the clinic where it is performed. The following is an average for each type of dermal filler used for example, calcium hydroxylapatite, such as Radiesse may cost: £687. Hyaluronic acid, such as Restylane may cost: £644. Polylactic acid, such as Sculptra may cost: £773. Polymethyl-methacrylate microspheres, such as Bellafill may cost: £859.

Tissue augmentation with dermal fillers is a quick procedure that can produce a visible difference providing facial fullness and a youthful look. Some fillers last for 6 months, while others can last up to 2 years or even longer.

There is a chance of considerable complications with dermal fillers if it is not performed by a trained practitioner with thorough understanding of facial anatomy. The practitioner must be able to recommend and inject an appropriate filler which is essential for safety and good outcomes.

There are various types of dermal fillers. The most common ones are:

Calcium Hydroxylapatite (brand name: Radiesse)

It is found in human bones and is a mineral-like compound, and is used to:

Reduce moderate-to-severe creases such as frown lines

Boost cheek fullness and other facial contours

Calcium hydroxylapatite is biosynthetically produced, which lowers the risk of an allergic reaction and thus no skin testing is required. This form of dermal filler is known to produce a very natural result, and have very few side effects.

Hyaluronic Acid (brand names: Captique, Elevess, Hylaform, Perlane, Prevelle, Restylane)

Hyaluronic acid injections can be used to enhance the skin’s contour and reduce depressions in the skin due to scars or injury. We may see potential improvements for:

Redefining the lip border, acne scars, frown lines between eyebrows, cheek depressions, deep smile lines (also known as nasolabial furrows), marionette lines at the corners of the mouth, crow’s feet at the corner of the eyes.

Hyaluronic acid is a natural substance found in high concentrations in the soft connective tissues and in the fluid surrounding the eyes, also in some cartilage and joint fluids.  It has become one of the most popular kinds of injectable fillers.

Polyalkylimide (brand name: Aquamid)

Polyalkylimide is a semi-permanent dermal filler and is used by mainly plastic surgeons to: enhance cheekbones and jawline, plump thin lips, treat deeper wrinkles such as depressed scars, and to replace facial volume lost due to aging.

It is biocompatible, meaning, it’ll have very little reaction with human tissue, and therefore no allergy test is required. Since its radio transparent, it will not interfere with x-rays. It becomes quite stable overtime, but can also be removed if necessary.

Polylactic Acid (brand name: Sculptra)

Polylactic acid is a synthetic, semi-permanent dermal filler that is injected into the face. It is known as a stimulator. Because this dermal filler stimulates collagen production therefore the results are gradual and not instant. This is a biodegradable and non-toxic substance that has been used for more than 40 years.

Polylactic acid works well in the lower half of the face, and can be used to: plump thin lips, fill the lines caused by laughing, and treat deep nasolabial folds.

Polymethyl-Methacrylate Microspheres (PMMA) (brand name: Bellafill)

PMMA is a semi-permanent filler and is used to treat deep wrinkles, folds and furrows, particularly nasolabial folds and to augment thin lips.

The Procedure

Facial Assessment & Mapping

The practitioner, will evaluate our facial appearance, skin tone and examine the areas of the face to be amplified. Vital points on the face will be marked as injection sites for dermal fillers and photographs may be captured of the areas to be treated.

Cleansing & Anesthetizing

An antibacterial agent will be used to clean the injection sites. Although not completely painless, the injections are usually easily tolerated by clients. Pain at the injection site may be mitigated by using a very cold instrument to chill the skin, or an anesthetic ointment may be used to numb the skin.

The Injection

Injection usually takes only a few moments per sites to be treated. The process of injecting, massaging, and checking the result is performed, and additional filler is added, if required. Depending on the number of areas to be treated, the whole process vary anywhere between 15-60 minutes.

Clean-up & Recovery

Once the results are considered satisfactory, any markings on the face will be cleansed off. Healing time depends on the types of fillers used and on individual patients. It is generally recommended to avoid intense physical activity for 1-2 days to help reduce bruising and swelling.

What are Dermal Fillers?

Dermal fillers are a substance formed from hyaluronic acid, which may be a good choice for you because of its compatibility with the human body. In fact, this substance is found in almost every single living thing.
Hyaluronic acid is a substance that is naturally present in the human body. Found in the highest concentrations in fluids in the eyes and joints. It is a gel-like water holding molecule that is the space filler and cushioning agent in all mammals. It cushions joints and nerves, hydrates the skin and hair, and fills the eyes. Dermal Fillers break down naturally over time. Each type works in a slightly different way with varying results dependant on the areas treated.

What can Dermal Fillers do for me?

Dermal Fillers can give you a more youthful look for a fraction of what a traditional facelift costs. Injectable wrinkle fillers, fill the lines, creases, and other areas. As a result, trouble spots disappear and a more youthful appearance is created. Wrinkle fillers can also be used as a way of volumising, plumping and lifting cheeks, jawlines, and temples, softening deep lines surrounding the mouth and filling out thin lips. We also offer the 8 or 10 point facelift, which is done using Dermal Fillers and the results have been extremely successful in lifting drooping skin and eyes.
