The Benefits: Postpone or never even have a Facelift

Fillers are the best treatment to reverse the effects of aging caused by loss of skin elasticity and subcutaneous volume by far. Dermal fillers are also extremely successful in treating the appearance of acne scarring, under eye hollowing, loss of cheek volume, hollow temples, and so forth. There is also overwhelming evidence that early treatment with Dermal Fillers does either prevent or postpone a facelift until much later in life!


What are Dermal Fillers?

Loss of volume, facial asymmetry, acne or accidental scarring, or even just the effects of aging can be treated successfully with dermal fillers. Today’s fillers are usually made from Hyaluronic Acid (HA). This is a synthetic form of a collagen subtype which naturally occurs in our bodies. This particular substance is extremely hydrating and can bind enormous amounts of water. Hyaluronic Acid (HA) based dermal fillers such as Juvederm® are non-permanent skin fillers used for the treatment of scarring, cutaneous depressions, acne scarring, excessively deep facial lines and wrinkles or to add volume to lips, cheeks, chin or neck if required. HA fillers are a clear gel which can be injected virtually anywhere in the skin or the deeper structures. The benefit of HA fillers is that they can also be dissolved should there be a need.

HA fillers provide an aesthetic effect for an average of at least 6-12 months, in some cases up to 2 years. During the consultation we often make use of 3D imagery to document the treatment results. The amount of product we need in order to get to the desired results is sometimes difficult to anticipate but we always make sure that we are transparent and realistic about the results we can achieve.

Some practitioners like to inject large volumes during one treatment session. Out of years of experience we can say that it is far better to layer the product and slowly built up the missing volume, therefore greatly reducing the side effects and risks that go in hand with a one-off volumizing treatment. The products are very durable possibly as a result of the skin’s own collagen production following the treatment. The results of a dermal filler treatment are long lasting and very natural.


How is it done?

The product is injected through either needle or canula, we tend to use mostly cannulas, as they are safer and cause far less trauma. The treatment is usually quick. Today’s dermal fillers contain a small amount of local anesthetic which makes them pretty painless. As we inject mostly through a canula we may only need one injection site either side of the face from where we can treat virtually the whole of the face as one.


What are the benefits of HA fillers?

The greatest benefit of HA based dermal fillers if injected properly is that they can really reduce the need for facial surgery later in life according to a study by the London based plastic surgeon Rajiv Grover. HA fillers can integrate into the connective tissue and collagen layer and stimulate the production of natural collagen at the site of injection. This means fillers have a great long-term effect and are in many ways anti-ageing. In areas where dermal fillers have been injected under the skin, acne scars, pitting, prematurely aged skin and even pigmentation can improve dramatically over time. For patients who suffer from dry, chapped lips HA fillers can provide hydration and softening of the skin/mucosa.


The Hairline Lift

This procedure is the result of years of experience in treating with dermal fillers. Originally a Far Eastern concept, often dubbed the Ponytail Lift for its scalp lifting purpose, we modified the treatment to suit the natural anti-aging approach we promote in our practice. By injecting behind the hairline around the cheek area and temple region we can lift, re-shape and widen the narrowing bone structure. Most of all we do not leave a large amount of filler in just one area, this is what was causing the pillow effect. We are really able to simulate the effect of a face lift with an extremely well tolerated procedure.
