Dermal Fillers

With increasing age, the Hyaluronic Acid content of our skin decreases, reducing its capacity to stay moist and supple. Oil producing glands reduce their activity and the skin becomes dry. Thus, it loses its youthful glow and smoothness. With gradual loss of collagen and elastin skin looks aged.

Dermal fillers consist of Hyaluronic Acid (HA) which is a natural sugar produced by our body regularly. The HA fillers are the most popular and the most preferred type of dermal fillers because of the effectiveness and they are comparatively safe. Filler is an injectable gel containing Hyaluronic Acid that restores youthful volume to cheeks, cheekbones and chin that have become thin due to weight loss or age-related facial fat loss. The results are instant, yielding, and natural. HA has been used for various aesthetic treatments, and doctors have been using it for injection into arthritic joints to aid movements, as well as eye surgery.

When injected into the skin’s layers, it fills up the space and does away with the cosmetic imperfections.

The injecting process lasts for about half an hour. You will need some time to consult your doctor before the procedure.

We at Dr. Nivedita Dadu's Dermatology Clinic use range of dermal fillers that is formulated with Lidocaine, a local anaesthetic, to provide you with a more comfortable dermal filler experience during and after the treatment.

The difference can be seen immediately. You will see the natural results right after your appointment and no one else would know!

Results last upto a couple of years and vary depending upon the consistency of filler used. You can speak to Dr. Nivedita Dadu for more details. It may sometimes be longer or shorter depending on:

1. Your age

2. Your physiology

3. Your lifestyle (smoking and exposure to sun or UV rays may shorten the effect)

4. The amount injected and the practitioner’s technique.

The requirement of each individual varies from the other. Dr. Nivedita Dadu would make a customized plan for you after the assessment. Therefore, the cost is not fixed.

Side effect are generally injection related, and mild to moderate in impact. The side effects are only for around a week or even lesser. Patients must report any kind of adverse events to their medical practitioner.

The aesthetic results are quick and very natural looking. You might experience some redness and bruise after the injection that can be concealed with makeup or concealers. You can return to work and resume your social life almost immediately.

In a couple of weeks following treatment, we suggest not to expose your skin for longer period of time to temperatures under 0`C, to direct sun or strong heat (UV rays, steam baths and saunas etc.) We advise that you avoid aspirin or anti-inflammatories for two weeks before a dermal fillers are used to lower the occurrence of bruising, avoiding green tea for three days after injection, makeup should be avoided for at least a day after injection. You are also advised not to apply pressure to, or massages the injected site during the first few days following the injection session. Also inform the treating doctor about the medications that you are currently taking like anti Hypertensives, Muti Vitamins Oral and Injectable, fat burners etc, as these may alter the results or increase the chances of bruising.

A dermal filler is used to enhance the facial beauty of a person. Some of the possibilities are:

1. To reshape your lips and make them fuller.

2. To smoothen the nasolabial folds to give you a younger look.

3. To remove the lines around your mouth.

4. Smoothening the skin under your eyes to get a refreshed look.

In the unlikely event, that you are not satisfied with the filler result, residual lumps or an over-correction of a wrinkle fold or lip after a dermal fillers treatment, we can use hylase to dissolve quickly the excess dermal filler and correct the problem.

Dermal fillers are used as an injectable gel to provide additional volume to the skin. Dermal fillers reduce the appearance of wrinkles, and the dermal fillers gel gives volume to the areas which have lost it, for e.g. the sunken cheeks. Anti Wrinkle Injections are different from the dermal fillers as the Anti Wrinkle Injections are injected to lower the muscle activity to prevent the wrinkles. While dermal fillers add volume to your face in order to make it look firm and full, Anti Wrinkle Injections  relaxes the muscles and therefore reduces the formation of wrinkles on the skin.

Adding volume to the upper, outer cheeks will re contour the face and give it more of a heart shaped face (like in youth) and enables getting a younger face naturally. You must visit a specialist in Dermal Fillers for a consultation and find the right filler treatment for yourself.

Patient should not be pregnant, breast- feeding, and should not have any known allergy to hyaluronic acid.
