What are dermal fillers?

Dermal fillers are injectable cosmetic fillers, which are usually injected into the soft tissue to reduce wrinkles and provide the target area with a more smoother appearance and to even out any defects. Some of the fillers used are absorbable and are temporary.

As we age our the volume of subcutaneous tissue reduces leading to the formation of wrinkles. With dermal fillers, they are placed in the subcutaneous level, plumping up the skin and giving it a more youthful look.

What areas are dermal fillers recommended for?

Dermal fillers are most popularly used for the face and its areas of interest, such as :

  • Tear troughs
  • Nasolabial folds
  • Mouth corner
  • Marionette lines
  • Cheeks
  • Lips & vermillion border
  • Chin augmentation
  • Nose
  • Smoker’s lines

The other areas of the body where dermal fillers can be used are :

  • Hands : By using dermal fillers, you can reduce the appearance of veins, bones and tendons and gives the hand a more plump and youthful appearance.
  • Feet : It has the same aesthetic purpose as for the hands but it also has a medical effect, whereby it is injected into the balls of the feet to provide more cushioning and reduces pain when wearing heels.
  • Decolletage : It is used to treat wrinkles in the area as sun damage and aging, changes in the weight of the breast all take a toll on the affected area.
  • Earlobes : Sagging and wrinkled earlobes can be fixed by dermal fillers. It restores the dynamic appearance of the earlobes.

How do dermal fillers work?

Dermal fillers generally have two modes of action. Either they are volumisers or they are stimulators. Volumizers are temporary fillers which provide volume to the area when injected subcutaneously but they degrade over time and need to be repeated intermittently. Whereas stimulators are a more permanent substance which stimulate the fibroblasts beneath the dermis and promote collagen formation. Most of the fillers fall into either category and the number of procedure required depends on the type of treatment. Hyaluronic acid fillers are more commonly voluminous fillers.

What is the procedure?

There are a few steps to dermal fillers insertion as below :

  1. Assessment of the face : The areas to be targeted will be marked and photographed prior to the procedure. This is either done by the surgeon or their assistant.
  2. Cleaning and anaesthetising the face : The face is cleansed with an antibacterial agent. After that a numbing agent is applied to the skin to reduce the pain. Usually the procedure is tolerable as it is painless.
  3. Injection of the fillers : Each target area is injected with the filler, massaged and assessed to see if additional fillers are required. This step can take from 15 minutes to an hour.
  4. Recovery : Following the injection, the face is cleaned up, and an ice pack is applied to alleviate any swelling or tenderness.

How often can you take filler injections?

The number of times a patient can get dermal filler depends on the target area and the individual. Certain areas like the earlobes can last 18 months with one session whereas parts of the face may require a follow-up session every 6 months. Your doctor will advise you according to your skin condition and the wrinkle formation on the skin.

What is the recovery time?

The recovery time is also dependent on the individual. You can resume your daily activities immediately but it is advised to avoid strenuous activities for 48 hours to minimize bruising or swelling. Post procedure there may be temporary numbness, palpable hard areas at the injection site, and at times a hypersensitivity reaction. All these effects can be alleviated by applying ice packs to the face.

When will the results be seen and how long do they last?

The results will be seen imminently and they may last from several months up to a year. The longevity of the procedure depends on the type of fillers used and also the post procedure care. Hyaluronic acid fillers last from 6 months to about a year whereas fat fillers last longer. The area of the fillers also determines the longevity of the procedure. Face fillers last lesser than fillers done for the decolletage or hands and feet. Post procedure care like avoidance of sun damage and good skin care regimen prolongs the effects of the fillers.

What are the side effects and unwanted risks of the fillers?

There may be certain side effects to this procedure depending on the area and the proficiency of the aesthetician. The side effects though possible are rare most of the times. The side effects and risks that patients can face are :

  • Asymmetry of the face or body parts
  • Bruising or bleeding and at times swelling at the site of the injection
  • Infection at the implant site
  • Palpable lumps
  • Skin rashes and itching
  • Redness of the skin
  • Over or under correction of the wrinkles
  • Scarring and damage to the skin
  • Ulceration of the skin

Is it painful during the procedure?

As a numbing agent is applied prior to the procedure, it is not painful and only slight discomfort is felt during the procedure. Post procedure there may some tenderness and swelling at the site which may be reduced by ice pack application.
