What are dermal fillers?

Dermal fillers are a gel-like soft tissue filler injected into the skin. It can help with many things, including facial augmentation, diminishing facial lines and also restoring the volume and fullness in the face.

Are there different kinds of fillers?

Fillers are differentiated by their density.

High Density Fillers

Fillers with a higher density are more effective for creating volume. Therefore we use high density fillers for volumizing deeper facial contours, such as the cheeks, nose and chin.

Low Density Fillers

Fillers with lower density are more effective for superficial injections, such as treatments for depressed acne scars or fine wrinkles

Will the treatment be painful?

The area to be treated will be numbed with a topical anaesthetic cream and a cold pack 10 – 20 minutes before the injections are given, so pain is minimal.

Popular areas for fillers

A flat nose bridge, a rounded tip, or a less-defined nose can all be easily corrected with a nose filler. A higher G-prime filler (creates more lift and contours) is what we usually use for a nose filler for a more defined nose bridge to enhance your facial contours.

Loss in volume in our cheeks tends to make us look older as our face sags downwards. Cheek fillers can be used for higher cheek contours to restore youthfulness or to create a more feminine appearance.

Fillers used for the cheeks depends on how much lift or volume is required or desired. 

A sharper face has been the fad these days. Combined with Botox jaw reduction, a chin filler can be used to achieve a sharper, V-shaped face. 

Those with a recessed chin(chin lacking in volume) can also benefit from a chin filler to improve chin volume and achieve a fuller, more contoured look.

Deep laugh lines make us look like we have aged overnight. Filling up these lines tend to take years off our age and make us look much younger.

Loss of volume due in the temples and forehead due to aging results in a shrivelled look. A fuller, contoured face with volume replenished at the temples or forehead results in a younger appearance.
