Dermal fillers

Reduce deep grooves and wrinkles with dermal fillers

Dermal fillers are injectable treatments used to reduce the appearance of lines and folds. Due to its highly favourable safety profile, non-animal stabilised hyaluronic acid (HA) is used, a substance found naturally in the human body.

It is a clear gel that once injected beneath the skins surface, integrates into the dermal tissue then attracts and binds to water molecules to help maintain volume. It is gradually degraded by the bodies own mechanism and disappears without any residue. This leaves the skin hydrated and volumised, smoothing out wrinkles and folds.

Frequently asked questions

The term “filler” encompasses a broad range of facial fillers and products, but at Smooth Dimensions, we use only the Juvéderm range from Allergan, as they are the most natural-looking and advanced dermal fillers available.

These particular dermal fillers are made up of different molecular structures of hyaluronic acid (HA); a naturally occurring substance that is already in our bodies, and is responsible for water retention in the skin.

When introduced to the skin, the HA based dermal fillers not only volumise, they also gradually integrate within the facial tissue itself. Once the filler has drawn water to the area and locked in moisture, a lot of patients will notice that the skin itself appears rejuvenated and hydrated.

Due to the different molecular chain lengths, HA fillers come in a range of consistencies. This means that we can tailor dermal filler treatments that are based on the area treated and the desired result. For example, a delicate area such as the under-eye tear trough will require a much finer product that will not bulge or look noticeable. The cheeks and chin, however, require a treatment that’s a little more robust to help structure and restore the scaffolding under the skin.

Dermal fillers can be used to treat the temples, deep naso-labial folds, frown lines between the eyes, vertical lines on the top lip, marionette lines at the corner of the mouth, definition of the lip border, increasing the size of the lips, horizontal lines across the forehead, jaw sculpturing, and tear trough. These kinds of fillers are also suitable for non-surgical rhinoplasty and for hand rejuvenation.

You may also be a suitable candidate for the 8 point facelift, which uses the very latest dermal filler techniques to provide a non-surgical lifting effect.

Generally we can dissolve this type of dermal filler if you are unhappy with the result.

Results with dermal fillers can be seen immediately and a follow up appointment may be arranged to finesse the results 2 weeks after treatment.

4 weeks is usually the amount of time needed to see the true result. Wait until the healing time is finished before you can see the size and shape your fillers will be.

The most common problem is not having realistic expectations from the treatment. 0.5ml filler in the lips will be extremely subtle. Most clients will find to show difference they will need 1ml in their lips or possibly more. Filler does not always last as long as desired or give the same effect from person to person. One person may find it lasting 18 months whilst another only a very short amount of time.

If you do not get the results you want, don’t be disappointed. Often the answer is more filler or possibly a thicker filler. It is common that patients need a few treatments to achieve their desired results. This is not a problem if you need more, extra filler can be added as soon as the swelling subsides.
