THE ART OF DERMAL FILLERS
Love of beauty is taste, creation of beauty is art
– Ralph Waldo Emerson
The art of Dermal filling has changed from “line filling” and “lip job” to total facial rejuvenation to create a natural, refreshed face which is in harmony and in balance.
THE SCIENCE OF DERMAL FILLERS
What are temporary Dermal Fillers?
Temporary dermal fillers are made of hyaluronic acid which a natural substance found in our skin.
How do they work?
Hyaluronic acid attracts water when injected into the skin and hence “plumps” up the injected areas. Dermal fillers are used to volumise various areas on the face, restructure jawlines, tighten necks, straighten noses, enhance lips, cheeks and chin. As we age, we lose facial fat as well as collagen and elastin and this can lead to drooping of the skin causing “wrinkles” and “folds”. Dermal filler injections are quick and simple procedures that provide instant results with minimal discomfort
What does the treatment involve?
Before treatment commences, a numbing cream or a block will used to make the treatment more comfortable. Ice may also be used to minimise bruising and swelling. The dermal filler is then injected into the skin, providing instant volume and lift. The treatment time can vary from 15 to 45 minutes in most cases, depending on the treatment plan and product selection. Once the treatment has finished the area will be massaged by hand to help mould the product into the desired shape. Arnica cream will be massaged into the treated areas to help reduce bruising.
What can be treated with dermal fillers?
Nasolabial Folds, Lip Enhancement, Cheeks and Chin Enhancement, Glabella (between the eyes), Nose Correction, Acne Scarring, Jawline, Temples, Orbital Rims, Tear Troughs, Brow Lift, Earlobes, Back of Hands, horizontal neck lines, décolletage
What types of dermal fillers are they?
They are 2 main types: Hydroboosters and Volumising dermal fillers
Hydroboosters: These fillers are designed to treat the overall condition of your skin by improving skin tone, hydration and elasticity. It is ideal for treating the whole face, back of hands, neck and décolletage where over exposure to the sun can cause premature ageing resulting in healthy skin with a beautiful glow
Volumising dermal fillers: There are 4 different types of varying thickness. The finer fillers are used on finer areas of the skin whilst the thicker fillers are for plumping the cheeks, jawline and other larger areas. Due to TGA restrictions,we can’t use the name of the fillers.
