What is a Dermal Filler?
A Dermal Filler is a product that is injected into the tissue beneath the skin. The injection provides your skin with a natural substance found throughout the body that keeps your skin looking young and healthy. Your skin will be more hydrated, elastic, and voluminous.
The first natural face filler was collagen. Collagen is made by your body, and is vital to the health of your skin and cell tissue. It has not been used in Australia for about eight years, and has been replaced by other types of temporary and semi-permanent fillers. At SkinRevision we offer a free assessment to meet with you and determine which one meets your needs.
Dermal fillers can be used to plump thin lips, so they look full, reduce facial wrinkles, fill in unwanted lines, and enhance features on the face such as cheeks, nose or chin.
Why would I choose Dermal Filler over other treatments?
Different cosmetic treatments that are available on the market provide different results. However, no treatment or injection does it all. Think of your face as three layers – the surface skin, the muscles and the deeper layers of the face (which includes fat and bone). It is in the deep layers where volume loss occurs over time. Dermal fillers treat this volume loss.
When our Doctors assess you, they will look at all three layers before they recommend treatments. Which treatment is best depending on your concerns, e.g., cosmetic fillers will do nothing to help fade skin pigmentation, but it is excellent to rejuvenate lost volume in the mid face. Our Doctors draw up a treatment plan according to your concerns.
Sometimes surgery is the best approach.
Dermal fillers are excellent for non-surgical treatment of mild to moderate volume loss, wrinkles lines and grooves that appear across the face as we age. It is an alternative, not a substitute, to invasive procedures. Some instances require invasive procedures such as a facelift or eyelift. Cosmetic fillers can be used in conjunction with surgical lifting, but the two treatment approaches are not comparable.
Dermal Filler For Cosmetic Enhancement
Volume loss and wrinkles are concerns as we get less young. Volume loss occurs across several areas of the face. You notice this volume loss by the shadow created in the facial area. This can make you look tired even though you feel fine. It is at these points that treatment with dermal fillers can make a difference.
- Cosmetic fillers are used to replace volume loss from deep layers of the face.
- This is used to treat signs of facial aging.
- It can also be used in the skin, providing hydration and plumping to wrinkles and lines.
- It can also enhance volume or glamorise. Lip, cheek, chin or nose enhancement are simply adding to your natural features.
