Dermal Fillers

Dermal fillers are injectable substances used in cosmetic procedures to restore volume, smooth out wrinkles and fine lines, and enhance facial contours. They are commonly used to rejuvenate and enhance areas of the face that have lost volume or show signs of aging.

Dermal Fillers Injection

Dermal fillers are composed of various substances, including hyaluronic acid, calcium hydroxylapatite, poly-L-lactic acid, and polymethylmethacrylate (PMMA) microspheres. Hyaluronic acid is the most commonly used filler material due to its biocompatibility and natural occurrence in the body.

Mechanism of Action

These fillers work by adding volume to the targeted area, filling in wrinkles, lines, and hollow areas. They can also stimulate collagen production, leading to improved skin elasticity and texture over time.


Treatment Areas

Dermal fillers can be used in different areas of the face, such as the cheeks, lips, nasolabial folds, marionette lines, tear troughs, and jawline. They are also effective for enhancing facial features like the lips or chin.



Before the procedure, a topical or local anesthetic may be applied to minimize discomfort. The filler is then injected into the targeted area using a fine needle or cannula. The process is relatively quick, and results are usually visible immediately.


Results and Duration

The results of dermal filler treatments are typically immediate, with improvements in volume, smoothness, and contour. The duration of the effects varies depending on the type of filler used and the individual’s metabolism. Hyaluronic acid fillers generally last between 6 to 18 months, while other types may have longer-lasting effects.


Safety and Side Effects

Dermal fillers are generally considered safe when administered by a qualified professional. However, temporary side effects like redness, swelling, bruising, or tenderness at the injection site may occur. These side effects typically resolve within a few days.

What Dermal Fillers we offer:


Juvéderm, produced by Allergan, is a range of gel fillers used for various aesthetic purposes. It can treat fine or deep lines, restore facial volume, define facial features, reshape lips, and smooth lines around the mouth. Juvéderm fillers contain lidocaine for patient comfort. The main ingredient, hyaluronic acid (HA), plumps the treated area. Results are immediate and can last between 9 to 24 months, depending on the filler type and treated area. Juvéderm is well-suited for under-eye bags, lips, and lines around the mouth. As HA is naturally found in the body and the effects gradually fade as the filler is absorbed.



Restylane, manufactured by Q-Med (a Swedish division of Galderma), offers a range of soft and firm injectable gels. It smooths wrinkles and folds in areas such as the cheeks, mouth, nose, lips, and eyes, while also adding volume to the lips. Restylane Lyft is a thicker gel used for deep wrinkles, folds, and volume loss in the cheeks, eyes, and hands. Restylane Fine Lines is designed specifically for lip enhancement. Many Restylane products contain lidocaine for patient comfort. By injecting hyaluronic acid (HA), Restylane plumps and smoothens the treatment area, with full effects becoming visible within a few days.  The duration of Restylane’s effects varies depending on the filler type and treated area, lasting between 6-18 months.



Belotero is a range of soft tissue fillers manufactured by Merz Pharmaceuticals. These fillers are made from cross-linked synthetic hyaluronic acid gel and utilize two patented technologies: Cohesive Polydensified Matrix (CPM) and Dynamic Cross-Linking Technology (DCLT). These technologies create monophasic fillers with different concentrations of hyaluronic acid and viscoelasticity. As a result, Belotero fillers are capable of addressing a broad spectrum of skin imperfections, ranging from mild skin dullness to significant loss of facial volume.

Teosyal Redensity 1 is a skin enhancer that enhances skin quality and luminosity. Teosyal Redensity 2 is formulated as a tear trough filler, intended to reduce the appearance of dark circles under the eyes.
