Dermal Fillers

Dermal filler, lip fillers and skin fillers / volumisers.

Dermal filler (injectable cosmetic filler, injectable facial filler) is a soft tissue filler injected into the skin at different depths to help fill in facial wrinkles, provide facial volume, and augment facial features: restoring a smoother appearance. Most of these wrinkle fillers are temporary because they are eventually absorbed by the body. Most dermal fillers today consist of hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring polysaccharide that is present in skin and cartilage. Some people may need more than one injection to achieve the wrinkle-smoothing effect. The effect lasts for about six months or longer. Successful results depend on health of the skin, skill of the health care provider, and type of filler used. Regardless of material (whether synthetic or organic) filler duration is highly dependent on amount of activity in the region where it is injected.

In the US, fillers are approved as medical devices by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and the injection is prescribed and performed by a provider. Dermal fillers are not to be confused with Neurotoxins such as Botox. Fillers are not approved for use in certain parts of the body. Dermal fillers may be used in these regions – forehead, temples, under eye zone, cheekbones, nose, midface (nasolabial folds), around the mouth, lips, chin, and jawline. Except for those areas, dermal fillers are also effective for treatments in the neck, décolleté, and hands zone. In Europe and the UK, fillers are non-prescription medical devices that can be injected by anyone licensed to do so by the respective medical authorities. They require a CE mark, which regulates adherence to production standards, but does not require any demonstration of medical efficacy. As a result, there are over 140 injectable fillers in the UK/European market and only six approved for use in the US.

Dermal Fillers help to diminish the appearance of facial lines and can replace volume loss in areas such as cheeks, temples and round the mouth in a natural looking way.

Tired eyes

Tired eyes can be improved with the use of RedensityII the first dermal filler to be approved to treat this delicate area.

Please note that Azzalure Botox can also help to raise the eyebrows and so reduce  heavy upper lids. The VI Peel can also treat the eyelids.

Combination treatments can make a huge difference to the eye area.

Dermal fillers provide facial contouring and sculpting, to increase chin and cheek definition.

A simple injection of hyaluronic acid gel (hyaluronic gels are normal components of our skin) will hydrate your skin and give it volume.

As we get older our production of natural hyaluronic acid diminishes, and this treatment will replenish it.

You can improve your looks by enhancing your facial profile, creating fuller lips and smoothing out lines and wrinkles.

Cheeks and sagging faces

Our faces are made up of ‘ fat pads ‘ which reduce as we mature.  This volume loss can cause wrinkles to appear in the cheek and lower face/mouth areas.

Nasolabial (nose to mouth) and marrionette (below the mouth)  lines are often more effectively treated by replacing these lost fat pads by dermal fillers, this can often improve the skin on the jaw line.

Restylane and Teoxane are dermal filler producers, FDA approved and having a long and successful track record.

There are many dermal fillers on the market yet only a six are FDA approved.

Some dermal fillers can be used in mesotherapy (Restylane Vital) to improve volume loss and skin tone.

Dermal filler treatment can be completed in under an hour and  won’t affect your natural expression.

It is non-permanent – the gel is absorbed by your body over time.  The results are instant and the effects last from 6 months to a year.
