Filler Treatment

 

Dermal Fillers

As our skin matures or age, the underlying youthful fullness and volume gives way to noticeable creases and folds that cause us to appear tired and older than we feel. This is caused by a gradual loss of supporting skin structures that give strength, fullness, and integrity to the skin. Similarly, acne breakouts can leave deep scars that can detract from an otherwise smooth complexion. 

 

Dermal fillers can provide a variety of benefits for facial rejuvenation. You can use them to:

 

  • Bring back a younger facial shape by restoring a youthful V-shape

  • Rejuvenate your lips, cheeks and mouth area with fullness

  • Lift up and support the corners of your mouth

  • Fill in your jawline and chin and ward off nasolabial wrinkles

  • Boost the skins elasticity, moisture and glow.

  • Smooth general facial lines and wrinkles

  • Filling in acne and chickenpox scars

  • Contouring the cheeks or chin without surgery

  • Evening out and strengthening your jawline

  • Restoring aging, sunken temples

  • Rejuvenating aging hands

The Right Approach for You

During your consultation, we’ll carefully evaluate your target areas and design a specific plan based around your personal goals. For the very best results, we may also recommend combining fillers with another minimally invasive treatments like botulinum toxin and facials. Consultations with us are required even if you've already had the treatment in another clinic before. You may bring another person during your consultation. Written and verbal information will  be given to you and you will have 2 days to think the treatment over. 

During the treatment

We will once again discuss the plan and which products we would use. Before and after photos will be taken for your journal.

We start by cleansing the skin, pls come without makeup or products on the area to be treated if possible. If you wish to have a topical anesthetic, inform us during the consultation. The filler product will be injected in the area with a thin cannula or needle. Results can be seen immediately but the area treated can be red and swollen afterwards. This will subside a few days to a week after. 

After the treatment

No downtime is needed after treatment and most patients resume regular activities right away. However, you should refrain from intense exercise or strenuous activities for 48 hours after your filler appointment. Avoid using makeup for atleast 4 hrs. Other things you should be aware of will be discussed during your consultation.

Can I combine other treatments with injectable fillers?

Patients often combine dermal fillers with botulinum toxin for more comprehensive rejuvenation. BOTOX® is ideal for treating wrinkles that form due to muscle activity as opposed to collagen loss. Other options for addressing facial aging include facial treatments and chemical peels to smooth fine lines and even tone, enhancing the look of areas treated with dermal filler.

Common sideeffects:

Some complications may arise from the injection of soft-tissue dermal fillers including:

  • Bruising – This complication is one of the most common ones at the injection site. It can happen notwithstanding the techniques utilized. However, there are some steps you can take to prevent bruising, such as avoiding blood thinners, minimizing the amount of puncture sites, applying ice packs, and refraining from activities that may raise blood pressure.

  • Over-filling – When too much dermal fillers treatment is injected, it may create lumps, and form unevenness. Thankfully, correction is possible in most cases.

  • Under-filling – This can be easily addressed by injecting more filler into the area.

  • Granulomatous inflammation – This reaction can result from any dermal fillers brands, but it can also be treated with medications and graduated injections.

  • Tyndall effect – This happens when the filler is injected too superficially so that the filler is close to the surface of the skin causing discoloration. The complication should improve once the filler is removed.

  • Infection at injection site – This complication is not very common, and it can be caused by a viral infection that spreads into the site, most common in patients with a history of cold sores.
