As we age, our skin produces less and less collagen and elastin – which is the building blocks which give us plumped up, healthy skin!
Over the years, dermal fillers have been developed with the same substance which is found in young skin – Hyaluronic acid which has a great compatibility with the human body. It acts as a network that transfers essential nutrients from the bloodstream to skin cells. The products in dermal fillers are non-animal and the hyaluronic acid is in the form of a fully bio-gradable gel. Many dermal fillers also contain Lidocaine, which reduces pain during the procedure.
Fillers are an extremely popular treatment for softening wrinkles, laugh lines, facial lines and wrinkles caused naturally by ageing or exposure to the sun. The popular areas to treat for those looking to add volume or fullness are usually the lips and cheeks. For those looking to soothe and plump out lines and wrinkles, popular areas include the mouth, chin, neck, décolletage and the hands.
Lip fillers are a very popular treatment which addresses a range of concerns related to the lips.

You may experience some unwanted effects to the injections. These possible side effects are usually mild and related to the procedure. Most are short term and disappear within the first few weeks. All risks and side effects will be discussed with you during the consultation.
Radiesse® is an injectable dermal filler which is used for smoothing moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds, like nasolabial folds.
This filler works immediately, adding volume to the skin overtime, and then continuing to stimulate the body’s own collagen. This treatment provides immediate results which are long lasting. Furthermore, over time, Radiesse® begins to stimulate the production of the body’s natural collagen and elastin for sustained effect. Studies show that in nasolabial fold treatments (the lines that run from the nose to the corner of the mouth), for example, results last up to 12 months.
For the first three months, Radiesse acts as a cosmetic filler which plumps up the skin and diminishes age lines. Radiesse microspheres then stimulate natural collagen growth, creating new tissue development for extended results.
Areas to treat with Radiesse;
After your Radiesse® dermal filler treatment you might experience slight redness, swelling, bruising, tenderness and/or a numb sensation in the area treated. You might wish to gently apply ice or a cold compress to the injection area after treatment to help reduce swelling. It is normal to feel “firmness” in the treated area for the first few days; over time the area will soften. It is recommended not to massage or manipulate the treated area(s).
These possible side effects are usually mild and related to the procedure. Most are short term and disappear within the first few weeks. If any other side effects appear or you feel unwell, please consult your practitioner or your healthcare professional as soon as possible.
Do not expose the treated area to intense heat (e.g. sun, solarium, sauna, etc.) or other intense facial treatments for one week after treatment.
For your well-being and aesthetic satisfaction, please consult with your practitioner about any follow up appointments required.
How long the effect of Radiesse® treatment lasts is dependent on the individual. There are many factors to consider,such as the structure of the skin, your lifestyle and age. The procedure can be repeated; please consult with your practitioner about what is appropriate for you.
These injections create a robust production of collagen, which helps to further plump your skin and wrinkles over time.
Belotero® is one of the lightest dermal fillers available. It is ideal for those looking to reduce the fine lines around the lips, corners of the mouth and minor marionette lines (which are the lines from the corners of the mouth down towards the jawline). Belotero® is made with a hyaluronic acid gel, which is found in your skin. Its function is to absorb water, deliver nutrients and act as a cushioning agent. When it is injected into the skin, it acts as a sponge and expands, filling wrinkles and folds and supporting areas which appear to have become sunken. The extra water brought to the skins surface also results in a fresh, glowing complexion with a soft yet radiant skin texture.
“Profhilo is not volumising dermal filler. It is also not mesotherapy. It sits between skin boosters and fillers as a SuperSkinBooster in that it offers fantastic hydration but also triggers collagen and elastin production, resulting in bio-remodelling of the skin” (Dr Ravi Jain recently speaking to the Consultingroom).
Profhilo is currently the only product which has the ability to stimulate your natural production of all four types of collagen and elastin. These are all vital substances which are lost from the skin as we age. Moreover, it can effectively cure certain kinds of wrinkles from within the skin, by boosting and utilising your natural processes. The more long term filling effect of Profhilo is stimulated by the natural production of the different collagen types within your skin. Profhilo does not remain where it is placed until it naturally degrades. Instead, it interacts with your tissue and causes it to regenerate.
