Dermal fillers are the main solutions we use for ‘static lines’ and ‘gravitational folds’. They are injected directly beneath a line or fold to fill the depression it makes in the skin.
Hyaluronic acid (HA) fillers are widely known in the industry by their brand names which include Juvéderm, Teosyal and Restylane.
HA dermal fillers are the main solutions we use for ‘static lines’ and ‘gravitational folds’. They are injected directly beneath a line or fold to fill the depression it makes in the skin.
Dermal fillers contain hyaluronic acid. Hyaluronic acid (hyaluronate) is an important physiological substance that all skin contains naturally. Its key role is to maintain the plumpness and moisture that helps keep the skin surface smooth and lifted, but levels of HA decline with age.
We inject fillers containing transparent hyaluronic acid gel, which over time is broken down by your body’s natural enzymes, just like your natural hyaluronic acid. An extra advantage is that there is an ‘antidote’ for HA fillers – an enzyme called hyaluronidase. So if for any reason you would like us to dissolve your filler, that can be done.
Fillers can be used for all sorts of lines and wrinkles, from deep nose-to-mouth lines to superficial lipstick bleed lines around the mouth. It can also be used for enhancement procedures such as lips, cheeks, nose and chin. The effect is instantly visible, although there may be some minor swelling and bruising. How long the effects last depends on the patient, their lifestyle, age and the areas injected.
HA Dermal Fillers usually last around six to twelve months.
HA dermal fillers are best for:
- deep skin hydration
- fine line prevention
- deep line correction
- under eye line prevention and treatment (Teosyal Radiesse 1 and 2)
- mid face volume restoration
- cheek enhancement
- lip enhancement
- correcting and shaping the chin, forehead and temples
- non surgical nose correction
- and many other areas where volume may be needed or to reduce lines and wrinkles.
