Dermal fillers target volume loss and deep, static lines in the face. It is most commonly used in the following areas:

  • Lips
  • Wrinkles and lines (together with anti-wrinkle injections)
  • Sagging skin
  • Nose to mouth lines (Nasolabial folds)
  • Between the brows (Glabella lines)
  • Lower and upper cheeks
  • Temples
  • Chin
  • Tear troughs (under eye area)

The most commonly used dermal fillers are made from a naturally occurring substance in the skin. The products take this substance and purify and stabilise the substance which is then injected into the skin as a volumizer. The treatment is usually administered using a needle or cannula, and is associated with minimal discomfort.

A small sting or momentary discomfort is to be expected with dermal filler treatment. Overall, the procedure is relatively comfortable. Many filler products are infused with a local anaesthetic agent that helps to numb the treatment area once the procedure has commenced. Anaesthetic creams and nerve blocks (similar to what you would receive at the dentist!) are also available to dermal filler patients at ENRICH Clinic.

Different forms of dermal filler

There are many different types of dermal fillers to choose from. Your choice should be influenced by the type of results you would like to see following treatment. Finer forms of dermal filler are used to treat very fine lines and wrinkles anywhere on the face, but particularly around the mouth and eyes. These are typically injected directly and have very little pain involved.

More dense, thicker forms of dermal filler are used for the treatment of lines and wrinkles in the cheeks, jawline and chin. Your doctor will assist in guiding you as to which dermal filler product is best suited for your needs.

How long does dermal filler last?

The duration of the effect varies from person to person and depends on the dermal filler product used. Dermal filler results are not permanent and slowly fade over time. Treatments can be adjusted and altered in order to suit the person’s needs and desired results. Dermal filler results typically last 6-12 months, depending on the individual’s metabolism as well as the type of product that has been used. Your doctor will provide specific advice on the longevity of your dermal filler treatment.
