Facial Dermal Fillers
Dermal Fillers also known as facial fillers are non surgical products made of Hyaluronic Acid (HA). Hyaluronic acid works by acting as a cushion and lubricant in tissue. Dermal Fillers are designed to effectively fill out lines and wrinkles and are also used to enhance the lips to give the lips more fullness.
The Dermal Filler product used is both safe and non-permanent and can last as long as 6 to 9 months. This non surgical treatment takes around 30 to 45 minutes to perform and skilled injections are carried out on areas such as: nasal labial lines, marionette lines and fine lines around the lips.
Whenever you’re looking for cosmetic enhancements, you should have options when it comes to the results you expect to see. For example, you may want to reduce signs of aging in your face, but perhaps you’re not quite ready to have a face lift.
At Transpire, you have several facial rejuvenation procedures to choose from. Injectable treatments is just one way to improve your facial appearance.
What is the Cause of Facial Aging?
As you get older your skin ages. Over time your skin is exposed more and more to environmental factors such as the sun, so it is inevitable that changes to the skin will occur. With age collagen and elastin production slows down, and without regular ample amounts of those, the natural growth factors responsible for turning over damaged skin cells is affected. What you then notice is less fat on your face, which unfortunately causes the skin to sag and droop.
Loss of elasticity is one issue and ageing can mean more folds in areas of the face which happens when muscles in the face contract. So as an alternative to having face lift surgery, much can be gained by having non-surgical injectable treatments instead.
Injectable Treatments to Treat Aging and Wrinkles
Injectable treatments can target facial aging in various ways. For example, treatment with very popular wrinkle and line reducers and Xeomin targets specific muscles in the face that cause the creasing on the surface of the skin. Alternatively, dermal fillers are applied below the surface to help with volume loss so then the skin shows less wrinkles on the skin surface.
- You may benefit from a few types of injectables instead of just one and our experts will confirm the right treatment plan for you. Perhaps your wrinkles only appear when certain muscles around the eyes and the face are used? If that’s the case, then you may benefit from Xeomin and established line and wrinkle reducing injectables.
- Alternatively, loss of volume, your nasolabial folds and your marionette lines will respond better to having dermal fillers applied. Well known injectable treatments plus Xeomin or dermal fillers would be recommended if you desire a more subtle results than surgery would offer.
Are Injectable Treatments Right for You?
- To maintain ideal results, injectables should be administered every 3,6 or12 months depending on what is advised for you. Injectable treatments are ideal for anyone who is seeing visible signs of aging.
- If you are looking for a more permanent way, then surgery may be the best option for you. During your consultation with us, we will help you to ascertain the most effective way forward. A comprehensive treatment plan can be put together to suit realistic goals.
Your options with injectables
Using injectables is a modern innovative way to treat aging so as to achieve a more youthful look. Here is a list various injectables:
We will select an appropriate injectable to use from the following list.
Neurotoxin injectable can be used to treat
- fine lines and wrinkles around the eyes
- frown lines that show between eyebrows.
Here, neurons in the muscle are blocked so the muscle can’t contract. This in turn reduces the appearance of wrinkles. This temporary treatment is one way to reduce wrinkles without going ahead with surgery. Ask us for more details.
Restylane is a hyaluronic acid dermal filler used to treat:
- nasolabial folds
- volume loss around the cheeks
- lip lines
- marionette lines.
Restylane can be used to give more fullness and volume to the lips.
Radiesse plumps up the skin using calcium hydroxylapatite.
The filler provides quick visible improvements and works to stimulate production of collagen. The body can break down Radiesse, so it’s important to remember that your own natural collagen remains and should be relied upon to maintain skin volume.
Belotero Balance is a hyaluronic dermal filler used to treat fine lines and moderate wrinkles on the face. Belotero can be used to treat more delicate areas, for example smile lines and vertical lip lines.
Xeomin is quite similar to another well known injectable treatment. Xeomin targets nerve activity in the muscles and prevents them from producing any wrinkles. The main difference is that Xeomin undergoes an additional process of purification which removes surface proteins. Xeomin is safe and effective to administer.
Kybella is used for submental fullness (double chin). More than one injection is required and Kybella uses deoxycholic acid to break down unwanted fat around the chin area. Once Kybella has eliminated the fat cells from the body the fat cells do not come back. What can be seen is a long lasting reduction in submental fullness.
