Dermal Filler

Contour, Lift, Fill

Filler injections are used to smooth out wrinkles on the face. The newest and safest fillers are injected not only to fill lines (e.g., Laugh lines and Marionette lines), but to increase volume and to reestablish the youthful contour. The aging process begins due to the loss of padding beneath the skin (e.g., diminishing of baby fat). In addition, elasticity and fullness are also compromised due to diminution in new collagen formation. The loss of padding and volume varies with the individual. A dermal filler, when used correctly, raises up the skin in the area of the injection.
Certain areas of the face evidence the loss of contour most dramatically:

  • Front of the cheek
  • Malar prominence
  • Center of the cheek
  • Temple Area
  • Tear Trough
  • Lower face (below and lateral to the mouth)
  • Upper and lower lips-enhance and augment
  • Jawline

As padding diminishes, the skin in these area flattens or sinks and the face begins to sag and wrinkle. Genetics, age and body weight are all factors in determining the extent of treatment required.
It is very important that the product used is safe and biodegradable, and that its effect if deemed necessary is reversible. With the right filler as a tool and a clear model in mind, we are able to work as artists to volumise the face and restore its youthful contour. Some rejuvenation is obvious after the first treatment, and so is the gratification it brings.

Dermal Filler cannot turn back the passage of time. However, they can restore skin hydrobalance and improve the skin structure and elasticity, as well as fill out wrinkles and folds and restore facial volume.

Fat – In the face, fat is organized into fat pads. As we age, the fat is lost or redistributed, and the fat pads shift relative to each other. Over time, bony features, lines, and wrinkles become more visible.


Bone – There is a significant loss of facial bone with age. Aging of the craniofacial skeleton may be due to changes in the relative dynamics of bone expansion and bone resorption.

Bone recession leads to thinner bone, removing structural support for the overlying tissues. This loss of support contributes to sagging and droopiness and noticeable changes in the other layers of overlying soft tissue and skin.
