Dermal fillers: The Ideal Candidate
They are ideal for those patients who have lost facial volume. This is best illustrated by loss of contour, structure, wrinkles and sagginess. Clinical assessment of the patient is critical in identifying the best filler to address the patient’s individual needs.
Dermal Fillers: Are they all the Same?
The are various types of fillers from:
- hyaluronic acid eg. Juvederm, Belotero, Teosyal, etc.
- calcium hydroxyapatite eg. Radiesse
- poly L-lactic acid eg. Sculptra
- adipose tissue like Allofill
Their individual characteristics vary in terms of projections, cohesivity, elasticity and longevity. These fundamental filler properties which along with patient selection are paramount for best treatment outcomes.
Dermal Fillers: Location, Location, Location
After clinically assessing needs of the patient, filler choice is then directed by area to be treated and individual characteristics of chosen filler. For example, Juvederm Voluma reflates and lifts the cheek and mid face fantastically well, Radiesse enhances and defines the jawline and lower face excellently whilst Juvederm Volbella enhances and plumps up your lips for a beautifully natural look.
The beauty of the newer generation of volumizers, is that the majority of them contain a local anaesthetic. This ensures that the procedure is as comfortable as possible. This along with minimal to no downtime makes dermal fillers one of the best non-surgical treatments to turn back the hands of time and deliver healthy skin. The dermal filler before and after photo below illustrates the wonderful anti-aging benefit of fillers.
