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)
