Dermal fillers – everything you need to know before a treatment
Fillers in Dubai | 9 October 2020
Dermal fillers are used to maintain volume in the face, and thus restore (or prolong) a youthful, rested, healthy appearance. Dermal filler injections take only minutes to perform and the cosmetic results are immediate. I inject the selected facial filler at sites where natural fat has depleted, the most common being the cheek bone area and the folds next to the nose (nasolabial), the lines running from the mouth toward the chin (marionette lines) and thinning lips. The new generation of facial fillers is more practical than the animal-based collagens they are descended from, as the newer products are biocompatible, more versatile in their weights and densities, and last longer. However, most facial fillers are still temporary, and depending on the staying power of the product as well as the reaction of the patient. Touch-ups will eventually be required.
Dermal fillers instantly plump up nasolabial folds, marionette lines, sunken cheeks, thinning lips and soft jaw lines. They can also be used to correct scars and deeper wrinkles.
No prep time is required with fillers, though you may request topical numbing cold ice packs prior to the procedure.
