Injectable Fillers

Fillers are gel-like substances which are injected to restore the lost volume, smoothen out wrinkles and creases or enhance facial contours. The whole idea of fillers is to give the face a more youthful appearance. The results are immediate and cost a fraction of the traditional facelift. It is popularly known as “Liquid Lift”. It has no downtime and done as an office procedure. The results last from a few months to more than a year.

What are dermal fillers?  

Dermal fillers are substances which are injected beneath the skin surface to smoothen out wrinkles and add volume. These are made of stabilized hyaluronic acid (HA) which also occurs naturally in the cells of the skin. This filler works by drawing in water and thus reduces the wrinkles by adding volume. These are biodegradable and hence are not permanent.

What areas can dermal fillers be used for?

Dermal fillers are used practically in all areas of an aging face where volume addition is necessary to rejuvenate and give it a more youthful appearance.

  • Lips may be injected to improve their shape, size, symmetry, and proportion.
  • Cheeks are injected to give them more definition in the hollows and over the cheekbones to highlight them.
  • Chin may be injected to make it more projected and proportion.
  • The nose is injected over dorsum and tip to do an instant office “Liquid Rhinoplasty”.
  • Under Eye, hollows are injected to make sunken eyes appear better.
  • Wrinkles like crow’s feet, glabellar lines, Nasolabial folds, perioral wrinkles, marionette lines, etc. are injected.

Is the procedure painful and how long does it take?

These filler injections are done by 30 gauge needle and are absolutely painless if done in the right plane by an experienced cosmetic surgeon. The procedure normally takes 15 to 30 minutes.  Makeup can be applied immediately after the procedure and you can go straight back to work.

How soon will I see the results and how long does it last?

Results are seen immediately after the treatment though it gradually improves for 2 to 4 weeks. Results last between 6 to 18 months depending on the brand used.

Are dermal fillers safe?

Hyaluronic acid is a substance which naturally occurs in the cells of the skin hence there is no risk of allergic reactions. It has been widely used internationally for the last two decades with an excellent track record.

Are there any side effects?

Dermal fillers have undergone extensive research and have come a long way from collagen injections to hyaluronic acid. Advanced injection techniques coupled with the use of a micro cannula (blunt needle) and improved product safety means that significant side effects are practically nonexistent.

  • Injection-related reactions: These reactions may include redness immediately after the treatment which subsides within a few hours.
  • Bruising: Occasionally this can occur if a vessel is punctured accidentally however this has dramatically reduced with the use of microcannula.
  • Infection: This can happen if proper aseptic practices are not adhered to.
  • Necrosis: This is one of the most dreaded, a complication of fillers and happens only when the filler is injected into the blood vessel.
  • Blindness:
