Dermal fillers have grown in popularity over the last few years due to their ability as both volume enhancers and wrinkle fillers.

What are Dermal Fillers?

At around the age of 25, the body stops producing collagen and elastin. These two proteins work together to keep tissue firm and skin elastic. Without them, the body isn’t able to keep tissue strong and skin supple. It’s this that causes the typical signs of aging to start appearing, including lines and wrinkles, sunken cheeks and a loss of elasticity in the skin.

Dermal fillers are injectable gels that are usually made of hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring molecule that attracts and binds water in the skin. A treatment will fill in wrinkles and provide volume to the soft tissues, helping to give your skin a fuller and youthful appearance well after your body stops producing collagen.

How do they work?

Generally, injecting dermal fillers into the skin causes plumping of that area which helps smooth wrinkles, enhance definition and volumise the face. However, different types of filler can be used for different results and in different areas.

When it comes to treating facial volume loss (like sagging cheeks), our Nurses will typically use a thicker dermal filler that can provide effective support for the cheeks. Plumping or removing lines from lips, on the other hand, requires a much thinner dermal filler as the skin around that area is thinner.

Where are they usually used?

Dermal fillers can be used to achieve a variety of results in different areas of the face. They are usually used in three main areas to achieve the following:

Around the Eyes:

  • Reduce under eye bags and dark circles
  • Soften fine lines and crow’s feet

Mid Face Area:

  • Smooth accordion lines (the fine lines that creep up the sides of the face towards the cheekbones) and folds
  • Add volume to the cheek area affected by gravity and age

Lower Face Area:

  • Smooth a “gummy smile” above the lips
  • Reduce the appearance of vertical lines above the lip
  • Add volume to the nasolabial folds around the mouth
  • Correct the downturned corners of the mouth
  • Stop the jawline from sagging
  • Plump and reduce chin creases
