What Are Dermal Fillers?
There are many dermal fillers on the market today worldwide, some better than others. The original dermal filler was a collagen injection. Unfortunately, with this product came allergies due to it being an animal product.
Most dermal fillers now are pure synthetic substances that replicate what occurs naturally in the body. As we age we lose collagen and these natural proteins leave our skin lacking volume and elasticity. Most of these products are very similar with slightly different linking structures.
The basic difference is the molecule size. This can affect the amount of ‘lift’ versus the amount of softness of the product, unfortunately some products are very soft but watery and do not last long. Others are very thick, lasting longer but can be very firm to the touch.
There has been a trend away from permanent dermal fillers as some of these can cause permanent problems and long-term infections or granulomas.
There is a saying now in the industry that permanent products give permanent problems. A better option is the medium term dermal fillers, which have been proved to be safe and have large lifting capacity with exciting results in rejuvenating cheeks, jowls and around the periorbital region.
Hand rejuvenation is also popular, where certain techniques can be implemented into the hands to bring volume for a more plump and youthful look.
Before the Procedure
The patient should be well and healthy and have a full medical history taken. Blood thinning medications and anti-inflammatory products should be avoided. Smokers should cut down or quit at least one week before hand.
The area should be clean and dry with no make-up on. It is handy to bring an ice pack for swelling afterwards. The patient should request a consent form to be emailed as it is beneficial to read and fully understand this before attending.
It is important to have an experienced injector as we have seen many poor results and complications due to inexperience. Government approved injectable products and fully trained injectors are essential.
Day of Procedure
Numbing cream can be requested for a small extra cost or can be brought from the pharmacy and applied half an hour before hand as per instructions on the packet.
In our clinic, experienced practitioners will administer a nerve block with local anaesthetic. We find this decreases discomfort to almost nil in most patients. After the procedure the patient will be numb requiring little or no aneasthetic.
Most small areas can be treated in 15-30 minutes. Areas suitable for treatment include the forehead, the frown, the temples, the cheeks, the periorbital tear trough region, the nasal bridge (injectable rhinoplasty), nasolabial folds, lips, peri oral smoker lines, marionette lines, pre jowl sulcus, jaw angle augmentation, chin augmentation and fine lines of the neck and hands.
After The Procedure
It is wise to ice the area for 30 minutes after the procedure and 30 minutes before going to bed, plus in the morning. An extra pillow or sleeping upright is wise to reduce swelling. An aftercare sheet is given to all patients and should be closely followed. Less than two per cent of people need a top up or a slight readjustment.
