Dermal Fillers

How do dermal fillers work?

It is natural for the skin to lose volume as we age – as time passes by, our body produces less and less of collagen and elastin. This results with a tired, sunken look of your face.

Dermal Fillers are used to re-volumise the folds and to hydrate the face area, in order to regain the fresh, youthful look.

Being made from natural sugar which occurs in the human body, Dermal Fillers give us the opportunity to replicate the natural function of producing collagen and elastin. In other words, Dermal Fillers allow us to restore the volume and fullness in many different facial areas, and by doing so, visually reverse the process of ageing.

Where do Dermal Fillers work?

Jaw

Dermal Fillers are often used to enhance the shape of the jawline.

Lips

The top and bottom lips can develop lip lines as time passes by. Dermal Fillers work wonders to improve such a situation.

Cheeks

With age, sometimes the “malar fat pads”, or cheek fat pads, start to drop. This is the result of a volume loss. This is not only a problem for the direct cheek area, but also for the rest of your face. Dermal fillers help you define your cheekbones and fill the areas which lost some volume.

Nasolabial Folds

Located at the sides of your nose, these folds run down to the mouth’s corner and are exaggerated once your cheek descends. Dermal fillers are used to diminish this effect and to give you back your youthful, lineless look.

Jowls

Sagging of the lower face is the result of the loss of elastin and collagen and gives you an ageing look. Dermal fillers allow us to define the jawline again and to regain the balance of your face.

Corner of the Mouth

With age, this area becomes more apparent, as well as turns down due to the pressure going from mid face. As the muscles called Depressor Anguli Oris keep pulling down, this becomes a problem for many. Dermal fillers are used to get rid of a sad and aged look of your face.

Treatment options

Different kinds of Dermal Fillers have to be used for different purposes, as there is no one type of dermal filler that suits all regions of our face.

When you want to treat a soft area, such as lips, it is necessary to use a dermal filler that creates subtle and natural results.

Other areas, which require structural reinforcement, for example, lateral cheek or jaw, need a denser dermal filler.

For the best results, Dermal Fillers should be combined with anti-wrinkle injections. Such a combined cosmetic treatment allows reducing the visible signs of aging, as well as aids to stop new wrinkles from forming.

FAQs

How to know if Dermal Fillers are the correct product for me?

If you want to regain a youthful complexion, dermal fillers are the way to go. It is important to remember that results gained through the use of dermal fillers are temporary, and to keep them for longer, it is necessary to repeat the treatments. Still, Dermal Fillers are the go-to treatment when looking for an anti-ageing and enhancing treatment.

Therefore, anyone who is looking either for a way to enhance his facial features, to soften the appearance of his aging skin or to reduce certain wrinkles or all these together, should turn his attention to Dermal Fillers.

How long do Dermal Fillers last?

Once you undergo the initial Lip Enhancement treatment, it may be necessary to perform an additional, top up treatment, between four to six weeks afterwards. This gives you the time to work with your practitioner on achieving the optimal results.

What are the side effects of using Dermal Fillers?

Some redness and mild to moderate swelling can be expected in the area in which Dermal Fillers were used. This is usually accompanied by the feeling of tenderness, lasting for a few days after the treatment. Some level of bruising, which can range from mild to moderate, can be observed in the case of some individuals.

Due to the fact that Dermal Fillers are made from hyaluronic acid, which is a substance that naturally occurs in our bodies, it is highly unlikely for an adverse reaction to take place. Still, remember that in the case of any side effects, you should contact our clinic so that our specialists can act in order to ensure both your safety and the best results of your treatment.

What happens if I stop using Dermal Fillers?

Discontinuing the use of Dermal Fillers causes the volume to slowly disappear. The area that was subject to the Dermal Filler treatment will gradually regain the pre-treatment state.

However, there is evidence that the proteins contained in dermal fillers can enhance the way your skin looks, allowing it to stay healthy and properly hydrated. Therefore, even after discontinuing the Dermal Filler treatments, it is possible for your skin to look better than pre-treatment.

Which brands of Dermal Fillers do you use and why?

At Cosmetic Avenue, we use only the world’s leading brands. It is important for you to be informed about both the benefits and risks associated with the exact brand of a Dermal Filler that you use. At your consultation, you will receive every information regarding the product chosen for your particular situation.

When will the effects of the injection be visible, and how long will they last?

This depends on your particular situation, the kind of a Dermal Filler that’s used for your Anti-Wrinkle Injection, and the amount of it. It is best to ask these questions during your consultation – the person performing the Anti-Wrinkle Injection will be able to give you an estimate.

Do the side effects differ from brand to brand?

As every producer offers a different type of Dermal Fillers, which can be created using a different formula, it is important to check the product before using it and then to ask a healthcare professional whether or not is that product safe for you to use. Here at Cosmetic Avenue, we do not use any products that are potentially dangerous to the health of our clients.
