Appearing like 20s in 40s is definitely not possible but looking fabulous in forties surely is. In Australia, nowadays, women are more focussed on possessing a natural yet glamorous look, that’s why the demand for facial fillers is increasing day by day. Dermal fillers fill the hollow regions under eyes, cheeks and around lips, thus, improving or enhancing the overall facial appearance with a subtle yet remarkable touch.
According to a survey conducted by Allergen in August 2017, 65% of Australian women believe that facial fillers or dermal fillers are more acceptable in present society than they were five years ago. Hence, people are getting more and more inclined towards using this anti-aging treatment with facial fillers.
At Nitai Medical and Cosmetic Centre, we use one particular type of dermal filler also known as hyaluronic acid injectable gel, which is extremely safe and has emulated remarkable results. Still, alongside the benefits of this gel as a filler, there are numerous other vital queries about its safety, precautions and side-effects that we need to be aware of prior to starting the sessions. So, let us explore all the details about hyaluronic dermal fillers.
Basics on Dermal Fillers Unveiled
What is this advanced type of dermal filler?
Created from a complex sugar content called hyaluronic acid, also found in living skin tissues, the dermal filler mimics the naturally found collagen. The dermal filler that we use is not synthesized from animals, instead, it is artificially generated in the laboratory, thus mitigating the chances of any sort of allergy or inflammation.
The hyaluronic dermal filler is also infused with a liquid anaesthetic to obliterate even the slightest trace of pain or discomfort in the ongoing sessions.
How does it work?
The hyaluronic acid is a hydrophilic compound, which means it has a huge affinity for water. So, when the dermal filler containing hyaluronic acid is injected into the skin, it draws the water content present beneath the skin and puffs up over time increasing the volume of that area. Thus, it helps in removing wrinkles and folds as well as enhance and magnify the attractiveness of face.
How much time does it take after the treatment to show the results?
Immediately after the treatment, subtle changes can be noticed but with time, the hyaluronic gel draws in water and expands in mass, thus, making up for the lost volume.
How long does it last?
When done under the supervision of a skilled dermatologist or cosmetic physician, the effect might last for up to 2 years depending on the type of fillers used.
What amount of time is taken to finish the whole procedure?
This dermal filler takes 15 – 30 mins to conclude the procedure. Since anaesthesia is also fused along with the hyaluronic dermal fillers, no downtime is required as it hardly causes any discomfort or side-effects that might interfere with the everyday routine of normal activities.
Uses of Hyaluronic Dermal Fillers
Dermal Fillers for Luscious Lips:
With age, our lips lose its volume and become thin and flat, thus, dissipating its allure and beauty. Also, the edges of the lips droop, vertical lines are formed and the cupid’s bow (V-shaped curve on the upper lip) flattens out as the harsh effects of time starts appearing. In such a case, to enhance the borders of the lips or to plump up the lips, dermal fillers are the safest and effective option without any downtime or painful surgeries.
Removal of Wrinkles:
Lines and wrinkles in our face is a way of our body letting us know that we are approaching towards old age. Due to collagen loss, our face loses its elasticity and hence, after we frown or smile, the skin muscles take time to relax back to its former position. That is when we start noticing lines and wrinkles that we genuinely want to be rid of. Dermal fillers boost the regeneration of collagen beneath the skin, hence, with this anti-aging treatment, we not only increase the volume of the face in the required areas but also repairs the skin from within by reducing all the signs of aging.
Side-effects of Dermal Fillers
Anti-aging treatment with facial fillers is extremely safe in comparison to other alternatives available. Moreover, the hyaluronic acid gel used in this particular type of dermal filler is artificially derived, therefore, there is a negligible chance of any sort of allergy or infection. However, sometimes, some general side-effects might occur such as slight redness in the site of injection, pain, bruising, lumps, itching or discolouration. But, these are temporary concerns that fade away within a week.

What are the precautions that must be followed after the treatment?
Although it is a very fast and secured procedure, still a little precaution on the way helps to avoid unwanted discomfort. So, a few concrete rules to follow after the completion of the session:
• Try to avoid putting pressure on the treated area or massaging the face for the next 24 hrs.
• For the next two weeks, avert direct sun exposure or extreme temperatures. Other than that, apply broad range sunscreen regularly while heading out for the day.
• Also, it is suggested not to apply any sort of make-up for the next 12 hrs after the treatment.
