DERMAL FILLERS

Filler treatments, also known as dermal fillers or injectable fillers, are cosmetic procedures that involve injecting substances beneath the skin to restore volume, smooth wrinkles and enhance facial contours. These treatments are popular for rejuvenating the face and achieving a more youthful appearance. The fillers work by plumping up the targeted area, reducing the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines, and adding volume to areas that may have lost their fullness due to aging or other factors.

Types of Facial Fillers: There are several types of facial fillers, each made from different substances with varying properties. Some common types include:

Allergan: Juvederm, Juvederm Ultra, Voluma, Vollure, Volbella, Volux, Skinvive, Galderma: Restylane, Defyne, Refyne. Lyft, Contour, Silk, Kysse, Eyelight, Revanesse: Versa, Versa Lips, Merz: Belotero

  1. Hyaluronic Acid Fillers: Hyaluronic acid is a natural substance found in the body that helps maintain skin hydration and volume. Hyaluronic acid fillers are versatile and can be used to treat different areas of the face, including lips, cheeks, and nasolabial folds (smile lines). These fillers may be dissolved if necessary. Common ones used in the US include:

  2. Calcium Hydroxylapatite Fillers (Radiesse): These fillers contain calcium particles suspended in a gel. They are often used to enhance facial contours and stimulate collagen production. They are also used for jawline sculpting, softening neck lines, enhancing the backs of hands and for buttock lifting, filling “hip dips” and cellulite improvement.

  3. Poly-L-Lactic Acid Fillers (Sculptra): These fillers work by stimulating collagen production over time. They are often used for more gradual and subtle results. They are part of overall facial antiaging treatments and also help prevent bone loss that occurs as we age. Sculptra is used for buttock lifting, filling “hip dips” and cellulite improvement. 

    4.Polymethylmethacrylate (PMMA) Fillers (Bellafill): PMMA fillers contain tiny spheres that remain beneath the skin to provide long-lasting support. They are commonly used for the treatment of acne scars, deep wrinkles and facial sculpting.

Common Areas Treated: Facial fillers can be used to address a variety of concerns and areas, including:

  1. Nasolabial Folds: The lines that run from the sides of the nose to the corners of the mouth.

  2. Marionette Lines: Lines that extend from the corners of the mouth down to the chin.

  3. Cheeks: Fillers can enhance cheek volume, cheek bones and lift, restoring a more youthful appearance.

  4. Lips: Lip fillers can add volume and definition to the lips.

  5. Under-Eye Hollows: Filling the hollows under the eyes can reduce the appearance of dark circles and a tired look.

  6. Jawline and Chin: Fillers can help improve jawline definition and add projection to the chin, creating overall profile balance. 

  7. Temples: Adding filler to hollow temples can restore youthful fullness to the face. 

  8. Buttocks: Bio-stimulating fillers can be used to lift the butto9cks, augment contours and fill “hip dips”.
