As we age, our skin becomes more susceptible to sagging and wrinkles, and our cheeks eventually lose their volume. Dermal fillers can help to counter this by filling in lines and creases in the face, resulting in a volumising and plumping effect. They can be used to plump thin lips, enhance shallow contours, soften facial creases, remove wrinkles, improve the look of dark eye circles, and improve the appearance of recessed scars. Unlike botulinum toxin, dermal fillers give natural looking results without affecting facial expression.
Dermal fillers are administered through a few small injections into the dermis, after which it is gently massaged to ensure it spreads across the treated area to fill creases and wrinkles. Typically, these fillers require minimal downtime. Results are immediate, and can last for at least 9 to 12 months. At Dream, we use renown fillers from Juverderm and Restylane only. If you are considering 'permanent' fillers, free fat grafting may be suitable for you.
