Dermal Fillers

Dermal Filler also known as injectable cosmetic filler, wrinkle filler, injectable facial filler, is a soft tissue filler injected into the skin to help fill in facial wrinkles, restoring a smoother appearance. Most of these wrinkle fillers are temporary because they are eventually absorbed by the body. 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 (Dermatologist/Cosmetologist), type of filler used. Dermal / Wrinkle fillers can also be used as “volumizers,” plumping and lifting cheeks, chins, jawlines, and temples; filling out thin lips, and plumping flabby hands. We at Dermesthetic have experienced dermatologists and cosmetologists conducting these procedures. Other factors that affect the facial skin include sun exposure, heredity and lifestyle.

Dermal / Wrinkle fillers can give you a more youthful look for a fraction of what a traditional facelift costs. Most will fill hollows, lines, and wrinkles in less than 30 minutes with results that can last from 4 months to more than a year. Dermal / Wrinkle fillers, unlike Botox injections that relax the muscle under a wrinkle, fill the line, crease, or area with one of several different substances. As a result of this treatment, trouble spots nearly disappear. Dermal fillers can be very useful in those with early signs of aging, or as a value-added part of facial rejuvenation surgery.

Consultation

Dermal / Wrinkle fillers is more of a restorative treatment. It helps to diminish facial lines and restore volume and fullness in the face. As we age, our faces naturally lose subcutaneous fat. The facial skin also stretches a bit, adding to this loss of facial volume. The facial muscles are then working closer to the skin surface, so smile lines and crow’s feet become more prominent. Other elements that affect the facial skin include sun exposure, heredity and lifestyle. It is recommended that before to get it check with a dermatologist before getting injectable cosmetic filler treatment especially if someone have sensitive skin. We at Dermesthetic have such expertise and knowledge.

Causes

Skin wrinkles typically appear as a result of aging processes such as glycation, habitual sleeping positions, loss of body mass, or temporarily, as the result of prolonged immersion in water. Age wrinkling in the skin is promoted by habitual facial expressions, aging, sun damage, smoking, poor hydration, and various other factors.

Ingredients

Dermal Fillers are made of sugar molecules or composed of hyaluronic acids, collagens, which may come from pigs, cows, cadavers, or may be generated in a laboratory, the person’s own transplanted fat, and biosynthetic polymers. Examples of the latter include calcium hydroxylapatite, polycaprolactone, polymethylmethacrylate and polylactic acid. We at Dermesthetic have experienced dermatologists and cosmetologists conducting these procedures.

Technique

We are at have highly qualified Dermatologists/Cosmetologists who are expert in application of dermal cosmetic fillers treatments and procedures. Dermal Filler is a non-surgical skin rejuvenation treatment, which may help delay in aging of skin. It is important to remember that dermal fillers are temporary treatments for facial aging.

There’s every reason to consider dermal fillers to correct signs of aging that are beyond what skincare products can do. It’s not that great skincare can’t make a huge difference in the appearance of your skin (believe us, we know the remarkable benefits a state-of-the-art skincare routine can provide) but age, muscle movement, fat loss, gravity, and sun damage among other factors will eventually take their toll. Without question, fillers can help improve the appearance of deep lines and give skin a more supple, youthful appearance in ways that skincare simply cannot.

A significant upward trend on the number of facial rejuvenation (dermal filler) procedures is projected, and could be due to the following factors:

  1. Men have also started to perform these procedures at increasing numbers;
  2. Emphasis on image of youthfulness by the mass media and fashion;
  3. Increasing numbers of senior people enjoying good health and financial affluence at older ages;
  4. Decreasing costs of surgery and other cosmetic procedures, making them affordable to all

However, while surgical procedures are still preferred to achieve a more vivid improvement, the recent trend is towards less intrusive procedures, such as injectable (Botox, dermal fillers) and laser skin treatments. While these treatments achieve temporary results, they tend to be preferred because of their reduced cost and less intensive recovery period.

Side Effects

Hazards of an improperly applied dermal filler procedure generally include bruising, redness, pain or itching. Less commonly, there may be infections or allergic reactions, which may cause scarring and lumps that may require surgical correction. More rarely, serious adverse effect such as blindness due to retrograde embolization into the opthalmic and retinal arteries may occur. Delayed skin necrosis can also occur as a complication of embolization. Embolic complications are more frequently seen when autologous fat is used as a filler, followed by hyaluronic acid. Though rare, when vision loss does occur, it is usually permanent.
