What are dermal fillers?

Collagen and hyaluronic acid beneath our skin helps to keep our skin looking firm and young.  With time, sunlight and other environment pollutants, unfortunately, our skin loses its collagen, leading to a loss of firmness, elasticity and volume.  And as the aging process continues, skin may start sagging and wrinkling, resulting in the formation of lines, wrinkles and folds.  Dermal fillers can help to “fill in” facial indentations, add volume to your skin, smooth unwanted facial wrinkles and lines and help skin regain its youthful look.  Dermal fillers can also help to enhance facial features such as augmenting nose bridge and cheek bones, and transforming thin lips fuller to that “Angelina Jolie’s pout”. This treatment produces immediate results, with minimal and transient swelling or redness.

Fillers include collagen, hyaluronic acid and fat.  We prefer to use these non permanent dermal fillers that are totally biodegradable, and their results usually last from 9 months to about a year.  Optimal results can be maintained over a long period of time through regular repeated treatments.

Juvederm®, maker of Botox™ (Allergan Inc), is a smooth consistency gel made of hyaluronic acid – a naturally occurring substance in your skin that helps to add volume.  Juvederm® is the first FDA-approved hyaluronic acid dermal fillers that are proven to be safe and effective.  Juvederm®is an almost painless dermal filler as it contains lidocaine which takes away the pain sensation the very moment it is injected under the skin.  Juvederm® is injected under the skin to instantly restore skin's volume and smooth away facial wrinkles and folds, like "smile lines" or deeper nasolabial folds.

Voluma is the latest addition to the Juvederm® family.  It is a cross-linked, biodegradable, hyaluronic acid gel that is designed for deep tissue augmentation, often used for volume replacement and restoration.  Acting in a 3D manner to rejuvenate the face and to restore youthful fullness over the cheeks, it gives even better results than targeting the grooves and folds, creating contours that evoke youthfulness.  Fullness is restored without any lumpiness on the skin.  Totally safe, results are immediate and very natural looking.  Usually last 12 months and above. 

The Esthelis™ products were developed by the company, Anteis, using a unique and patented process.  This unique technology gives Esthelis™ products exceptional qualities, for perfectly natural and long-lasting results.  Developed from hyaluronic acid of non-animal origin, these highly biocompatible product ranges are safe and efficient.  Esthelis™ products are made from a component that is naturally present in the human body.  They therefore, present a very good safety profile, with considerably reduced risks of allergy or side effects.  Results last between 9-12 months.

The Revanesse® family of dermal fillers is a crystal-clear, biodegradable, sugar-derived gel based on a natural substance, called hyaluronic acid. The gel is injected into the skin in tiny amounts with a very fine needle. Result can be seen immediately.  Revanesse® uses the newest technological advancement in cross-linking, producing a high quality, safe and long-lasting dermal filler.  The Revanesse® range, which is biodegradable and non-animal based, utilizes the highest concentration of cross-linking hyaluronic acid, as well as rejuvenating power of non crosses-linked hyaluronic acid.  As it contains no animal products, it eliminates risk of eliciting allergic reactions.  Results last between 9-12 months.

Radiesse®Volumizing Filler is the only dermal filler that can create a 3D lift while stimulating your natural collagen production, for long lasting results.  A US FDA-approved filler, Radiesse® stimulates the body to produce new collagen and provides both immediate and long lasting cosmetic augmentation. It rejuvenates your skin and highlights your best angles from within, by filling and lifting wrinkles and folds for 3D enhancement.  This is the Radiesse® Heart-Effect.  Radiesse® is clinically proven to be safe and effective and has been trusted for use in more than 3,000,000 aesthetic treatments worldwide.  Generally, Radiesse® lasts over a year for most patients, although individual results may vary depending on factors such as age, skin type, lifestyle, and metabolism, as well as the area treated.  Radiesse® has been approved by the leading regulatory authorities worldwide.  It was approved by EU authorities in 2004 (CE Mark) and by US authorities in 2006 (FDA approval).

Benefits of Dermal Fillers

Dermal Fillers can be used to improve the skin's contour and reduce depressions in the following:

  • Frown lines that run between the eyebrows (glabellar lines)
  • Smoker's lines which are vertical lines on the mouth (perioral lines)
  • Marionette lines at the corner of the mouth (oral commissures)
  • Worry lines that run across the forehead (forehead lines)
  • Crow's feet at the corner of the eyes (periorbital lines)
  • Deep smile lines that run from side of the nose to corners of the mouth (nasolabial furrows)
  • Cheek depressions / cheek enhancements
  • Lip augmentation
  • Lip contouring
  • Acne scars

Are fillers safe?

Yes. Both Restylane & Revanesse are safe because they contain no animal proteins allergens or chemicals, thus eliminating the risk of eliciting allergic reactions.  Even people with food sensitivities can receive these fillers safely.   The hyaluronic acid in both Restylane & Revanesse are naturally integrated into the tissue, and allow for the passage of vital nutrients like oxygen and hormones.  As cells are also able to pass between fragments of the gel, the skin will look perfectly healthy and natural.

Evolence, a natural collagen, has been used as an injectable beauty treatment for more than two decades with an excellent safety record.  Evolence has also undergone additional extensive safety testing to ensure safe use by its users.
