The Smart Choice of HA Dermal Filler
Dermal filler can help to instantly restore your skin’s volume and smooth away facial wrinkles and folds. Minimally invasive procedures, injectable dermal fillers can plump thin lips, enhance shallow contours, soften facial creases, remove wrinkles and improve the appearance of recessed scars.
Dermal filler is an injectable gel made from hyaluronic acid (HA) a naturally occurring substance in your skin. Some dermal fillers contain a local anaesthetic that provides more comfort both during and after injection.
What is Hyaluronic Acid (HA)? Hyaluronic acid (HA) is a naturally occurring polymer found in all living organisms. The human dermis has a high percentage of HA, which hydrates the skin because of its high water-binding properties. HA is the predominant part of the viscoelastic intracellular matrix, which provides and maintains proper tissue volume and acts as a cushion to help protect the skin. The natural product, if injected into the skin, would be rapidly lost. To produce a longer-lasting HA, it must be made more robust and stable by cross-linking. * Cross-linked gels combine with naturally occurring HA to provide volume and support for 4 to 12 months.
Some areas that Dermal Filler can be injected are:
Cheeks - add volume to deflated and sunken cheeks, and to define cheekbones
Marionette Lines - To fill and reduce their appearance
Jawline - to soften sharp or overly angular jawlines.
Lips - add volume and definition to thin or shrunken lips. Also to reduce the appearance of wrinkles around the lip area.
Nasolabial lines / folds - To reduce the appearance of deep lines between the bottom of the nose and corners of the mouth

*Cross-linking is a chemical process of bonding one polymer chain to another to create a larger, more stable molecule.

The difference between Dermal filler and Botulinum toxin is that a dermal filler is an injectable gel that provides volume where as, Botulinum toxin relaxes muscle activity and is used to treat moderate to severe lines caused by repeated facial expressions.

Dermal Fillers are a gel containing hyaluronic acid that is injected into or below the skin by a healthcare professional to smooth facial wrinkles and enhance lips by restoring volume and fullness. Do not have Dermal Filler injections in an area where there is a non resorbable implant or if you have irritated or infected skin, allergy to hyaluronic acid or other severe allergies, autoimmune disorders or hypersensitivity to local anesthetic or porphyria. Caution if you have a bleeding disorder, if you take medicines that prolong bleeding time, have had poor results with previous similar injections, have angina combined with rheumatism or a tendency to large scar formation. Dermal Filler treatments may result in some redness, swelling, pain or tenderness, itching and/or bruising which may last a few days. Inflammatory reactions can last up to two weeks in rare cases. See your healthcare professional if any side effects concern you. Exposure to excessive sunlight or extreme cold should be avoided until redness or swelling has resolved. Dermal Fillers are not recommended for people taking blood thinning medicines and they have not been tested.
