Natural dermal or skin fillers are made up components found in the human body. They are injected into or under the skin to improve the appearance of lines and wrinkles. They are not permanent and last from some months up to 2 years or more depending on product chosen.
Lines, wrinkles and folds have different depths ranging from deep skin folds such as the lines running from the outside of the nostrils down to the angle of the mouth – the nasolabial lines – to superficial lines and wrinkles around the eyes.
Lines appear with the aging process and some appear earlier in some individuals and ethnic groups than in others. Unlike Botox which prevents lines from forming by inactivating the muscles directly responsible for causing the skin to crease, dermal fillers do not inactivate the muscles of facial expression but instead fill out the lines and creases in the skin that have already formed.
The choice of filler will depend on what needs to be achieved. Fillers can be used to eradicate skin creases directly – e.g perioral lines around the mouth – or indirectly – eg by filling the mid-face and cheeks to pull back and lift folds that have formed in the lower part of the face. Fillers can also fill out defects such as an indented or pitted scar. Superficial lines can be addressed with very fine dermal fillers that are specifically made for surface lines.
Moles and other unsightly lumps such as seborrhoeic and solar keratosis.
Moles or other skin lumps or lesions on the body or face are very common and more so as you get older. Most of them are superficial and easily removed using a radiolase resulting in an amazing or marked cosmetic improvement.
Moles and keratosis can be raised or flat and pigmented or normal in colour. Although mostly harmless they can be unsightly and a real nuisance. It is commonly believed that having them removed is difficult, involved and expensive or that it will invariably leave some scarring or disfigurement.
This isn’t so since the advent of the Radiolase – a sophisticated electrosurgical unit generating radiofrequency energy that can be used for removing skin lesions as it is used for delicate eye and brain surgery. This device can be used for removing large or small moles in any awkward position on the face or body and even sensitive enough to remove minute skin tags on the eyelid. No scalpel and no stitches. Superficial lumps on the face or elsewhere can be removed or trimmed down safely with a Radiolase providing amazing cosmetic results.
Facial reshaping can be achieved in a number of ways without resorting to major surgery.
The lips, nose, cheeks, jaw line and chin can be improved using dermal fillers to change outlines or fill out hollows, curves and indentations. See the section on Facial Lines and Fillers.
Hollowed or sunken cheeks can be reversed and rejuvenated, withered or aged lips can be remodelled and rehydrated with different dermal fillers. Jowls, double chins, chubby cheeks and eyebags can be diminished using fat dissolving treatments. See sections on Spot Fat Removal.
