Dermal fillers have been developed and used over a number of years for injection into the skin. They help to restore our skin to its former youthful appearance, by injecting into areas where the skin needs to be plumped up again to make it look firmer.
Dermal fillers are produced in different levels of effectiveness. In general, the thicker the product, the deeper it is injected into the dermal layer of the skin helping to plump out deeper lines and wrinkles, such as nose to mouth lines, to build cheek contours and augment the lips. These deeper fillers can also be used to fill scars and other facial blemishes.
As we age, not only does our facial skin progressively lose its elasticity and start to sag but changes in the deeper layers of the skin also contribute to the signs of ageing. The bone and soft tissues degenerate, especially in the mid-face and this leads to flattening of the facial features.
By adding volume to the cheeks, the former youthful facial fullness can be restored and enhanced thereby lessening the signs of ageing.
At the Avanti Aesthetics clinic we use thicker consistency Dermal Fillers for non-surgical cheek augmentation which will restore lost facial volume and provide skin structure and elasticity. These smooth injectable fillers are made from a natural complex sugar called Hyaluronic acid.
Naturally found in human skin, hyaluronic acid also assists in skin hydration by attracting and holding water. They are specially formulated to be used deep in the skin to add natural looking volume to the midface and cheek bone areas.
Injectable Lip Enhancement involves the precise placement of Dermal Fillers into parts of the lip and surrounding skin in order to enhance, shape, or add volume to the lips and to reduce surrounding wrinkles.
Lip Fillers enhance the natural beauty of younger lips as well as restore the plump, sensuous look that is lost with age in both men and women. Lip Fillers also add balance and symmetry to uneven lips and create harmony between the lips and other facial features.
Our Doctors understand that often the greatest fear of patients seeking lip enhancement is an overdone, unnatural result. We reassure our patients that we too find such a look unacceptable. Results will appear natural and not overdone.
Creating the perfect lips often involves much more than just increasing their size. Care and attention must also be given to the surrounding skin, such as filling the fine lines that appear above and below the lip, lifting the corners of the mouth that can sag with age, or correcting the “nose to mouth” lines that commonly appear to frame the mouth at either end. Neglecting these complementary enhancements can lead to an imbalance in the overall harmony between lips and face.
Nose Reshaping, also known as a Non-surgical Rhinoplasty or a Non-Surgical Nose Job, is an affordable procedure that uses dermal fillers to achieve a more attractive nose without having to go through the possible complications, downtime, and high costs associated with surgery.
It is ideal for individuals with a wide variety of aesthetic nose complaints.
- A flat bridge – dermal fillers can be used to create a subtle increase in height
- A slightly crooked or an off centre nose correction
- Depressions which can be filled
- Camouflage a bump or hook on the bridge of the nose
- To balance the size of the nose in comparison with other facial features
- To refine an asymmetrical nose
- To refine the nose shape or size following surgical rhinoplasty
- To achieve improvement in other minor concerns with the nose
By correcting these imperfections with dermal fillers, your nose will appear smaller, more symmetrical and attractive.
A non-surgical rhinoplasty is a lunchtime procedure, with very little or no bruising, no general anaesthetic, no extended healing time and has no effect on nasal breathing as it only involves the injection of dermal fillers into the skin.
Within 15 minutes, immediate correction will be achieved with minimum to no pain and no recovery or downtime. If you are considering nose reshaping, but do not wish to go through invasive and painful procedures, this safe and effective method may be for you.
The Tear Trough is the groove that runs under the eye between the lower eyelid and the cheeks which is commonly perceived as just skin discolouration and dark circles. In reality, the dark colour of the circles is often greatly exaggerated by a pronounced tear trough under the eye, as it will deflect light, thereby creating a shadow and an apparent increase of under eye circles and discolouration.
Under eye hollows may be hereditary and can occur at relatively young ages. Most commonly they occur as we age. As the fat directly under the eye begins to protrude with age, it can overhang and overshadow the tear trough, making it seem relatively deeper and darker and interrupting the previously smooth transition from the eyes to the cheeks.
During treatment small droplets of hyaluronic acid dermal filler are placed deep along the Tear Trough and around the eye rim and massaged and sculpted into place. The Tear Trough Fillers have built-in local anaesthetic allowing for a quicker and more comfortable treatment of the patient as well as less swelling. Ice and numbing cream can also be used to numb the area.
The final results are evident at roughly 1 week after all swelling has subsided. Results under the eyes last for up to 12 months.
By enhancing the chin, the jaw line can be sharpened; the profile of the face balanced, and the apparent amount of excess skin and fat in the neck can be reduced. Although surgical chin enhancement via placement of an implant can be carried out, non-surgical chin reshaping may be a more suitable option for those who are unsure of whether a permanent procedure is suitable and for those who do not wish to undergo surgery.
Dermal Fillers can simply be injected into the areas of the chin to improve the shape and forward protrusion of the chin. The results from this treatment can last up to 18 months with higher consistency Dermal Fillers commonly used in Chin Augmentation.
At Avanti Aesthetics we use only hyaluronic acid Dermal Fillers for Chin Augmentation, if you do not like the appearance of the final result it can be reversed with an enzyme called Hyaluronidase. Dermal Fillers in the chin tend to be favoured over implants because of the reversibility and safety of the procedure.
