As we age, stress, gravity, obesity, and even sleep movement can all negatively impact our facial structures, causing skin to droop. If your skin is sagging or lined with age, dermal fillers are an effective way to give skin a younger and more youthful look.

What are dermal fillers?

Dermal fillers are used to smooth out wrinkles in the skin. They are injected into the skin to produce a satisfactory aesthetic outcome in the area of injection. Dermal fillers can be used to plump the skin, such as in the lips, lift a specific area, such as around the eyes, and to tighten skin, such as around the mouth and jawline.

Where can dermal fillers be used on the face?

The effect produced by a dermal filler depends on where in the face it is injected. Most commonly, fillers are injected in the:

• Nose
• Temples
• Cheeks
• Brows
• Lip lines
• Lips
• Jawline

Fillers used in areas of the skin where loss of elastin and collagen has had the biggest impact, such as the temples, lip lines, and cheeks. They may also be used solely to enhance and shape an area, such as the nose or the lips.

What does the procedure involve?

Before your filler injections, you may be offered local anaesthetic to numb the affected area. You will then be injected in specific locations of your skin, and your skin will be massaged.
Many people undergo repeat filler treatments for better, longer-lasting results. It is completely safe to have a repeat injection in the same area of skin as long as the original filler has significantly dissolved, and an additional correction is required.

Why might I want dermal fillers?

We all age differently, and for some people, ageing can have a particularly negative impact on the skin on your face. It is common for skin to droop and sag around certain areas of the face over time, which can give the appearance of old age. Other factors, such as smoking, obesity and sun exposure can also cause skin to become wrinkled.

What happens after the procedure?

You will see results from your dermal fillers immediately after treatment. These continue to improve over the next 2-to-4 weeks after treatment.

Are dermal fillers permanent?

You can expect dermal fillers to last between 9 and 18 months.

Are there any side effects of dermal fillers?

Most side effects, including swelling, redness, bruising and tenderness, are only temporary and should wear off after a few days.

Less common side effects include the filler showing up under the skin as tiny dots, and the risk of an allergic reaction to the particular filler used on your skin.

Can dermal fillers be removed?

Some facial fillers can be reversed, but it not recommended to undergo this treatment. It is better to wait until your fillers naturally dissolve.
