Dermal Fillers

If you want to rejuvenate your skin without undergoing aggressive surgical procedures, a dermal filler can be a great option.

Dermal fillers are becoming more and more popular because they are safer and less expensive than surgery.

One treatment can restore volume and plumpness to your skin, and can also significantly reduce or even remove wrinkles. And the effect can last for months or even years.

A dermal filler is a solution that is injected under the upper layer of the skin to either replace lost skin, or to simply plump up the existing skin.

As we get older, we can can loose up to 80% of the thickness of our skin.

With age, our skin bit by bit loses what’s called collagen and elastin (as well as other elements), and the body’s ability to produce these substances also declines.

By the way, its not just age that makes us loose collagen and elastin. Stress, lack of sleep, smokingpollution, and sunlight all contribute to degradation of collagen and elastin.

Collagen is the most abundant protein in our bodies and is found in muscles, bones, skin, hair, blood vessels, etc. Collagen is what gives our skin strength and structure, and which helps hold the body together.

Elastin is an elastic protein found in connective tissue. Elastin allows these tissues to stretch and then return to its original position after being stretched.

So Collagen gives the skin form and hold it together, while elastin lets it bend and stretch.

If you compare the face of a baby to that of an elder person, you will notice that the baby’s skin is normally plump and full.

The facial skin of an elder person on the other hand, will often be flat and have sagging folds, because it has lost volume.

By injecting a dermal filler into the skin where collagen and elastin have been lost, this volume or plumpness can be regained. When this volume is restored, the outer skin will be pushed out and stretched and therefore lines and wrinkles will be reduced or removed.

Dermal fillers are most commonly used to treat wrinkles such as Crow’s Feet, Forehead Lines, Frown Lines, and Nasolabial Folds.

In addition, dermal fillers can be used to add volume to areas to give that area life and plumpness, such as lips, cheeks, chins, and bags and circles under eyes.

There are different dermal fillers for different procedures and also for different severity of lines and wrinkles. The various dermal fillers are made of different material, have different longevity and have varying degrees of softness. Softer fillers are normally used in the lips, for example, while harder fillers are often used to enhance cheekbones.

Dermal fillers can also be either non-permanent or permanent, although the non-permanent types are significantly more commonly used.

The most commonly used dermal fillers are Juvederm, Restylane, PerlaneSculptra and Radiesse, and we have all of these available at our clinic.

The non-permanent dermal fillers normally last from 6 months and up to 2 years (depending on what type you use).

The persons undergoing a dermal filler procedure normally feel no or minimal discomfort from the treatment, and most people are also able to resume normal activities immediately.

Most people will normally also see results within 30 mins.

Some people may confuse dermal fillers with Botox (or Botolinum).

They are both injected into the skin, however, Botox is used to stop or reduce muscle contractions which again stop wrinkle formation. Dermal fillers are instead used to increase the volume of the skin.

However, many people choose to get both Botox and dermal filler treatments as this combination can produce very good results.
