Dermal fillers are used for facial aesthetic treatments and are injected into the facial skin and certain body areas such as the hands.
Fillers can lift and contour the face as well as be used to create volume. With the right type of dermal filler, the face can be smoothed out ridding unwanted facial wrinkles for a younger appearance.
Fillers are used for both anti-ageing and beautification purposes. To give a more youthful visage dermal fillers can be used to reduce the appearance of mild to deep wrinkles and is particularly effective for treating mid to lower facial regions. Filler can be a non-surgical facelift option with a liquid facelift being the most popular option for lifting and contouring the face.
Dermal fillers work by boosting the skin’s supply of hyaluronic acid. This injectable substance has a gel consistency made up of stabilised, non-animal hyaluronic acid, which is tissue-friendly and closely resembles the hyaluronic acid that exists naturally in the body. Dermal fillers are long-lasting but not permanent with the result of a single filler treatment lasting for around 6 to 12 months.
Dermal fillers can be used to smooth away facial lines and wrinkles, create fuller lips and shape facial contours, such as cheeks and chin, and revitalise the skin.
The most common areas treated are:
Nose to mouth lines (the nasolabial folds)
Marionette lines (either side of the mouth)
Smokers lines (around the mouth)
Between the eyebrows (the glabella lines)
Lips and philtrum column (adding volume and shape)
Chin filler and jawline filler to shape, define and adjust the facial profile
Nose filler to achieve a smoother, straight or lifted nose profile
Under eye-hollows/tear trough which often becomes deeper with age and fat loss
Cheek filler for subtle beautification or to help plump areas where fat loss has occurred
