Dermal filler is a non-surgical method for facial rejuvenation which are used to volumize areas and deep lines to minimize the appearance of aging. These injection of soft-tissue fillers have a plumping effect and are generally inserted into the lips, cheeks or under the eyes to restore the lost volume. Dermal fillers are also used for smoothing the static wrinkles, facial creases and indented scars formed from acne or chickenpox. Dermal fillers are great to treat naso-labial folds (nose to mouth lines), smoker’s lines around the mouth and lips.
The facial fillers are composed of a naturally occurring substance in the body called hyaluronan (Hyaluronic acid), which has the remarkable ability to hold onto more than 100 times its weight in water, thereby adding volume and restoring youthful appearance.
Am I a Candidate for Dermal Filler Treatment?
The following are some common reasons to consider facial rejuvenation:
If you have a number of signs of aging such as fine lines and wrinkles.
If you have a ‘tired’ appearance and you want to look younger and more refreshed.
If you are looking for natural result for your face enhancement with virtually no downtime after treatment.
If you don’t want to go for any surgical procedure to rejuvenate your face.
If you are a healthy person, have a positive attitude and realistic expectations.
Procedure- Before making the injections with an ultra-fine needle, your surgeon will apply numbing cream to the area, ensuring any pain is kept to a minimum. In some cases a local anaesthetic is used. The procedure takes about 30-40 minutes to complete. When the dermal filler is injected into the skin, the hyaluronic acid volumizes, softens and hydrates the skin. It also promotes the production of collagen and elastin underneath the skin which gives the skin a more youthful texture.
Risk and complications- Dermal fillers are safe when performed by an experienced doctor. The risk/complications are rare by filler injections which may include the followings:
The common risks are: temporary redness or bruising, swelling, pain.
The rare risks are: infection, skin discolouration, bumps and nodules.
Downtime and recovery- Dermal filler causes very minimal sensation and discomfort during the procedure. It has no downtime and recovery period because it is also a non-surgical procedure like Botox. You can resume your normal activities immediately after treatment, however you should try to avoid the sun for the rest of the day and also it is advisable to avoid massaging the treated areas, or exercise and sauna.
Dermal fillers provide an excellent option for restoring lost facial volume, softening angular lines, filling the hollows under the eyes, correcting early jowl formation (yes, we all hate that one) and those deep smile lines.
Dermal fillers create a natural and more lifted facial appearance and restore the youthful fullness by adding the lost volume in desired area of your face. Results are immediate and the effect lasts up to a year. Successful results depend on health or age of the skin, type and quality of filler used. Fillers often need replenishment every few months as the hyaluronic acid will begin to dissolve. If the procedure is not repeated, the skin will gradually return to its pre treatment condition.

Frequently Asked Questions
Will the effects of the dermal filler treatment last for a long period of time?
Since aesthetic products dissolve over time, the correction does not last forever. Many people choose to have regular top up treatment.
Is there anything I should take after the treatment to reduce the swelling?
Non-prescription anti-histamine may reduce swelling and itching. Rarely, patients need a short course of oral Prednisolone to control the swelling.
Should I touch the treated area after the dermal filler treatment?
Avoid touching the treated area within the following 12 hours. After that, a light make-up can be applied and the area can be gently cleansed. A clean cool pack can be applied directly to the area to soothe the lips and help reduce swelling.
