Dermal Fillers

Dermal fillers are aesthetic gel based treatments injected into the skin. They are specifically designed to reduce the appearance of wrinkles, contour the face and create volume. Some dermal fillers are also used to hydrate and revitalise your skin.

We take a holistic approach to facial rejuvenation, customizing each procedure to meet the exact needs of the patient. Different fillers that we offer are used for different areas of the face. Some are injected deeper while others are more superficial to get the best, natural-looking results.

Our team at Aesthetics Allure will carefully listen to your concerns and discuss all of your options. We will also help you choose the combinations that are best suited to provide you with the natural look you desire.

Dermal fillers are based on a substance that occurs naturally in your body – a sugar molecule that exists naturally in almost all living organisms. Its normal function is to bind water so it acts as a lubricant and shock absorber in movable parts of the body, such as joints. It is also important for the transport of nutrients and in regulating water balance in the skin. By boosting your skin with this naturally occurring substance, dermal fillers revitalise and add volume to the area instantly. This diminishes the appearance of lines and wrinkles and giving a natural softer look. The gel we use is very tissue-friendly and closely resembles that which exists in the body. Because the dermal filler resembles the substances that occur naturally in the body, the risk of allergic reaction is minimal.

A single treatment result can be seen instantly. We use dermal filler injections to give a natural-looking result that does not affect facial expression. As we age, our face changes over time, so dermal fillers allow you to control your looks subtly as you age.

Dermal filler products vary in thickness, anaesthetic content and longevity. The longevity of dermal fillers ranges from 6-24 months depending on the brand, thickness and area treated. Individual body factors such as how fast your body metabolises the product are also relevant to how long the filler lasts.

Depending on the area, your practitioner may apply a local anaesthetic to the area to be treated. Some of the fillers already contain local anaesthetic which also makes the treatment tolerable.

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 (sad appearance)
  • Lips (adding volume and shape)
  • Cheeks
  • Chin

 

 

FAQ

One of the great advantages of dermal filler treatment is that the effects are long lasting but not permanent. Dermal filler products are biodegradable, which means they will naturally disappear in the body. To ensure an optimal and long lasting result, a top-up treatment is recommended 6-24 months after your initial treatment. Our staff will guide you on the appropriate time for your follow-up appointment.

Duration also depends on many factors, such as the individual’s skin type, skin condition lifestyle and age. After the initial treatment, follow-up sessions are normally recommended around every 6 to 12 months depending on the individual and the treatment. A treatment of the lips lasts about 6 months.

Dermal fillers should not be used in or near areas where there is or has been skin disease, inflammation or skin related problems. Dermal fillers have not been tested in pregnant or breast-feeding women, individuals with medical conditions that lower the body’s immune response or individuals undergoing therapy that is immunosuppressive may be more prone to infection by a skin injection procedure. During your pre-treatment consultation, you should thoroughly discuss your medical history with your treating practitioner.
There are occasional injection-related reactions which may occur after any injection; they typically resolve a few days after injection to the skin, within a week after injection into the lips. These reactions include redness, swelling, pain, itching, bruising or tenderness at the injection site. After lip enhancement, lips may swell for up to a week, but this typically reduces after two to three days.
