As time passes, the fat under the skin gradually diminishes. On the face, this can be seen as wrinkles and grooves especially around the mouth and eyes. This gives the face a tired and saggy appearance. This is part of the natural aging process where the levels of elastin and collagen start falling causing wrinkles.
Dermal fillers can be used to restore fullness to your facial features giving you a more youthful appearance without the surgery of a face-lift.
Areas where dermal fillers can be used are:
- Under Eyes
- Nose contour
We, at Australia Medical Centre, use Juvéderm® that contains hyaluronic acid. It works by improving your skin contour and texture. Certain problem areas like crow’s feet, frown lines and laugh lines are easily tackled with this type of dermal filler.
Hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring substance found in the body. It stimulates the production of collagen that gives that filled-out effect for a fresher look to the face.
Dermal fillers are safe, quick to show results and a relatively cheaper option than plastic surgery if the corrections you require are not substantial.
They have been used for a very long time and the effects are fairly predictable. The effects are long lasting and the down time after the procedure is minimal. You can have the procedure done in your lunch hour and get back to your busy day!
Depending in the type of filler used and the area filled, the effects can last up to 18 months.
After the procedure, you may experience some swelling and pain at the injection site. This is normal and will subside after a few days. Pain is minimal because the fillers may also contain a local anaesthetic, but a local topical pain killer can also be applied prior to injecting.
