As we age, the only problem we encounter is not just lines, there is also a loss of collagen, elastin and hyaluronic acid which gradually results in thinning of skin and lost in volume and skin elasticity. The change in the facial contours and volume is quite evident along with the changes in facial bones and the soft facial issues. The graceful, attractive and lifted triangle of youth which comprise of high and full cheeks and a contoured small chin turns into an inverted triangle of youth giving a heavy bottom appearance to face as the cheeks become flat and jowls appear. Dermal fillers prove highly effective to tackle this facial condition.
TYPES OF DERMAL FILLERS
There are many different types of dermal fillers available but the most common and popular dermal fillers are hyaluronic acid fillers which are natural in substance. The results of these fillers are natural but temporary. Hyaluronic acid helps in improving the hydration level of skin, promotes synthesis of collagen and normal skin functioning. It is vital for the structural unity of collagen matrix, giving structural support as well as providing nutrients.
Dermalogic Aesthetics approach towards facial rejuvenation with dermal fillers is to carefully examine the facial features in accordance with the Leonardo da Vinci’s 3 facial zones (Upper Third, Middle Third & Lower Third). Our clinicians are bestowed with the artistic and creative abilities along with professional experience and expertise. This gives them a ‘double vision’ according to which firstly, they carefully examine and evaluate the areas and extent of facial volume loss which they manifest to their clients (most of them are even unaware of the gradual volume loss they are having over the years) and secondly, they are able to envision the results of dermal fillers treatment prior to its administration.
ROLE OF DERMAL FILLERS IN FACIAL CONTOURING AND ENHANCEMENT
Though dermal fillers treatment has been rated as the second most popular and commonly performed aesthetic enhancement treatment but it still raise scepticism and doubts in the minds of many people. This is due to the unfavourable reports about dermal fillers treatment which lead to ‘pillow faces’ and ‘trout shaped pouts’. In addition to this, the role of dermal fillers has also been misperceived. The use of hyaluronic acid fillers as safe and effective treatment for wrinkles, lines and volume loss have been approved by the clinical studies.
Basically, as the name of dermal fillers indicates they should fill up. However, they have much advanced role to play in addition to just filling up. However, they have much important and advanced role to play than just filling up wrinkles. In experienced and professional hands, dermal fillers can do subtle and refined facial sculpting and contouring.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
You’ll have the opportunity to ask your medical practitioner any questions as part of your consultation, but to start the ball rolling here are the answers to some that our patients most frequently asked questions.
Skin is made up of three vital layers: the hypodermis, the dermis and the epidermis. The hypodermis, the deepest level of skin, consists of fatty tissue, which cushions the layers above it.
Immediately on top of that is the dermis, which contains collagen and elastin – two key attributes to a youthful appearance. Constantly renewed in the young, production of these slow dramatically with age.
The epidermis, or top layer, is the home of crucial cell renewal. In young skin, cells are replaced every 15-30 days, but this slows to every 60 days in later adulthood.
Dermal filler replaces lost volume and treats static facial lines by replenishing the natural hyaluronic acid content of the skin.
Lip Fillers and Lip Enhancement are one and the same thing. They both achieve the same goal. We have the means to subtly improve our lips’ fullness, definition and overall shape with lip fillers.
Our Clinicians will always provide a consultation before treatment, but – like with all dermal fillers – you can usually have the treatment during the same appointment.
Our dermal fillers have an in-built anaesthetic called lidocaine which enhances comfort. We can also use anaesthetic cream or a dental block if you’d prefer.
No. Famous cases of these resulted from permanent lip implants – not the non-permanent hyaluronic acid dermal fillers
No. The dermal fillers we use take on the characteristics of the body’s own tissue so the product itself won’t be noticeable.
The procedure can be completed in 45-60 minutes.
We charge per syringe of dermal filler. Deeper lines or greater volume loss require more syringes of dermal filler.
Yes. Only 1 in 20,000 treatments result in an allergic reaction. Although dermal fillers can be reversed using another injection, this requirement is extremely rare.
There is no recovery time with dermal fillers, so you can immediately resume normal daily activities. Patients should avoid excessive alcohol, exercise or sun for the first 24 hours.
The gel is broken down naturally and reabsorbed by the skin.
Most possible side effects are related to the action of injecting the skin, not the product itself. These include: redness, minor swelling, itching, tenderness around injection site and potential lumps in the treated area. These can be reduced by massage.
If you are prone to cold sores, there is a small chance that one will occur following a lip enhancement. In very rare instances (1 in 15,000) blood supply from the smallest vessels can be disrupted causing scab formation and, in some cases, scarring.
Women who are pregnant and/or breast-feeding, people with severe allergies or a history of anaphylaxis and consumers of blood thinning medications.
