What are dermal fillers (face fillers)?

Dermal fillers, also known as face fillers, are soft injectable gels containing hyaluronic acid. Face fillers improve:

  • Wrinkles
  • Folds
  • Sunken facial appearance by restoring volume.

Our skin naturally contains hyaluronic acid – a strong humectant that attracts water. Therefore, many popular dermal fillers (Restylane®, Juvederm® and Teosyal®) contain Hyaluronic acid. Dermal fillers are also used for enhancing facial features

Indications for face fillers?

Dermal fillers maybe used for anti-ageing (wrinkles and folds), enhance and define facial features.

Our approach to cosmetic filler treatments

Plastic surgeons have creative and artistic abilities. They must have a ‘double vision.
They must clearly identify the areas of volume loss and visualize results before dermal fillers treatment.
Hence, “Aesthetic procedures of this nature require an artistic sense.”

How long do dermal fillers last?

The effects of soft tissue fillers last between 9-12 months. However, this usually depends on the thickness of the dermal filler used.

  • Lip fillers last between 6-12 months as the gels are softer to ensure a natural feel and appearance.
  • Cheeks and jawline fillers are more tough gels that may last up to two years. 

Face Fillers Treatment Areas

Lines and Wrinkles

Facial ageing involves reduction in volume of facial fat compartments.  The face first sinks and then sags.  Replacing lost volume in certain compartments responsible for jowls lift the skin.  Facial exercises for jowls are usually counterproductive.

Nasolabial (mouth) Folds

The ‘nasolabial folds’ are deep lines that form at the bottom of the nose and move to the mouth’s corners. Our board-certified dermatologist, plastic surgeon and cosmetic doctors are vigilant of facial proportions and balance.

They use the ‘Liquid Facelift’ method, which uses dermal fillers to provide volume and lift the skin.

Lip Enhancement

The lips lose volume from the age of 18 onwards. The use of lip balms, chapsticks and other similar products temporarily hydrate the lip surface.
To achieve fuller lips for a long-lasting period, hyaluronic fillers may be the solution. Therefore, lip fillers result in plumper, soft, naturally hydrated lips for a long period of time. Click for more details

Chin

The ‘triangle of beauty’ of our face ideally comprises well-defined cheekbones, a fine jawline and a nicely pointed chin.

Dermal fillers enhance cheeks, chin, and jawline and help restore balance and proportion. Moreover, dermal fillers in these areas last more than a year, sometimes up to two years. More Detail

Cheeks

Jawline fillers last more than 12 months once the right density material is selected. Dermal fillers come in varying consistency depending on the treatment area and goal.    For example, a carefully selected 1ml jawline filler will provide more volume than 1ml lip filler.  We use highly cross linked hyaluronic acid dermal fillers that are robust and provide long term results.

Nose

The nose is one of the most prominent features of the face. It plays a significant role in defining overall facial appearance.
A non-surgical nose job using dermal fillers is ideal for those who wish for an improvement without surgery.

Using very fine needles, we inject face fillers under the nose skin. Only experienced hands can safely perform such a procedure.

Frequently Asked Questions

What Are The Different Types Of Dermal Fillers?

The most popular fillers in the UK are Hyaluronic Acid (HA) based due to their safety, versatility and ease of administration. The various HA fillers differ in concentration, formulation and degree of cross-linkage. This affects their duration of action and the amount of swelling following the procedure. Most HA fillers now contain lidocaine to improve patient comfort and reduce the need for additional anaesthetic.

Radiesse®, a longer acting filler, is also popular for particular concerns and gives great structural support. It helps to stimulate fibroblasts which in turn help to synthesize new collagen.

How Will I Look Immediately Afterward Dermal Fillers?

The filling effect is apparent after the procedure and the treated area may be red and tender with some swelling. As there is a risk of bruising this may start to appear following the procedure. However, bruises will be more obvious in the subsequent days.

What Can I Do To Reduce Bruising?

Certain medications and supplements thin the blood making bruising more likely. When possible, it is advised to stop taking aspirin, vitamin E, St John’s wort, gingkgo, evening primrose oil, garlic, feverfew and ginseng 2 weeks before treatment. It is best to avoid alcohol and nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory medication, such as ibuprofen and diclofenac, 2 days before.

Arnica tablets or gel may be used 2 days prior to treatment and continued afterwards for 2-3 days.

Cold compression just after the procedure will reduce swelling and constrict blood vessels, reducing any further bruising.

Warm compression may be used a couple of days after if bruising has developed. This will help speed up the healing process.

Pineapple and papaya both contain bromelain which helps to break down proteins releasing trapped blood from the tissues. Topical and dietary vitamin C will also aid the healing process as it helps to build collagen around vessels.

Camouflage make-up may be worn, although it is best to avoid application on the day of treatment if possible. Advice can be given on recommended make-up coverage.

What Are The Worst Complications Of Dermal Fillers?

The vast majority of dermal filler treatments have no complications. Initial swelling, redness and tenderness usually settles within a couple of days. If bruising does occur it can take up to 14 days to heal so procedures should be planned well in advance of important events.

Any asymmetry that may occur can usually be managed by correction with additional filler. Bumps or lumpiness can be improved with massage during and after the treatment. If they persist, HA fillers may be broken down using the enzyme hyaluronidase.

Below is a list of rare but more serious complications:

Tissue Necrosis: Injected filler can obstruct blood supply to skin tissue causing ischaemia which can lead to necrosis. It may occur immediately after injection or hours later. All practitioners should be trained in managing these rare events should they ever occur.

Granulomas: These are nodules that may appear months or years after a treatment and they are more common with permanent fillers. They arise when the body reacts to the filler material by walling it off. They can be treated with corticosteroid injections or excision.

Infection: As the skin is breached, there is always a possibility of infection. To reduce this risk, the practitioner will ensure the area is adequately cleaned and that equipment and techniques utilised minimise any risk of contamination. Any persons with a history of cold sores in the area to be treated should be warned about the risk of reactivating infection. This may be prevented with prophylactic medication and treatment following the procedure.

Scarring: Although rare, it is possible for a scar to form if there has been any infection of if an individual has a history of hypertrophic or keloidal scarring. This information will be gathered whilst taking a medical history.

Is It More/Less Painful Than Botox?

Dermal filler treatments are tolerated very well with mild discomfort. The fillers usually contain an anaesthetic which helps to minimise pain and a topical cream anaesthetic can also be applied if required. As the procedure uses different injection techniques and generally takes slightly longer than a botox treatment it may seem more uncomfortable.

How Much Is Usually Injected?

Hyaluronic acid fillers normally come in 0.5 and 1ml syringes. The volume used will be decided on the area to be treated and the best possible filler for that indication.

Radiesse® or Calcium Hydroxylapatite is available in 0.3, 0.8 and 1.5ml and would be used for a semi-permanent result where more structural filling is required. Again, the volume used would be decided after examination of the particular area.

Will The Fillers Be Lumpy?

After the procedure the practitioner will massage the area to smooth any obvious lumps. At home a gentle massage may be used with the tips of fingers for the next 48 hours only if a lump can be felt. Usually the filler settles down within 2-3 weeks and feels ‘normal’. If a bump persists it is advised to see the practitioner who may be able to correct this with a firm massage or break the product down.

Could I Be Allergic To The Filler?

Although rare, it is possible to be allergic to filler material. This may be a mild allergy which could result in prolonged swelling or a severe hypersensitivity with swelling, redness, bumpiness and a rash. Treatment for these rare reactions usually requires antihistamines and steroids which would be arranged by the practitioner.

Can The Filler Move After It Has Been Injected?

If the area is aggressively massaged after treatment, the product can move. Therefore it is best for individuals not to touch the area after treatment unless they feel any lumps or bumpiness whereby gentle pressure is recommended.

Will I Be Able To See The Filler?

It is very rare to be able to ‘see’ the filler. HA fillers are colourless gel and not visible when injected correctly. If a filler is injected too superficially, the product may be seen as a bluish discolouration of the skin. This can be managed with compression and sometimes an injection to break some of the product down.

Will My Skin/Lips Feel Different Afterwards?

Once the swelling subsides, the filler takes 2-3 weeks to settle and feel more like the surrounding skin/lips.

Will Other People Be Able To Tell?

Usually people ‘look better’ without obvious changes in their appearance. Good practitioners will be replacing volume that has been lost over the years and hence rejuvenating the overall features. As particular areas may swell more than others, such as the lips, a treatment may be obvious to family/friends.

How Often Will I Have To Have Fillers?

This depends on each individual. Most fillers used last 6-12 months, however, as they also help to stimulate collagen and plump the skin it may not be necessary to have a repeat filler after this period of time. Unfortunately, some individuals may break the product down more rapidly than others. Advice is best sought at consultations or review appointments

Is It Okay To Have A Different Filler Injected After Having A Previous Treatment With A Different Brand?

Usually this is fine if there have been no complications. The Dermal Fillers London practitioner will want to know when the treatment was carried out, which product was previously used and the reasons behind wanting a different filler.
