Youthful skin is firm and able to retain its own structure. It remains relatively plump and well hydrated. As we age, wrinkles, lines and folds begin to appear. The naturally occurring substances found in youthful skin, such as elastin and skin plumping sugars and proteins diminish over time and cause the skin to lose structure and volume. Dermal fillers or wrinkle fillers can add youthful fullness and reduce wrinkles. Replacing these naturally occurring substances found in the skin is the basis for the use of the gel injection and fillers. For injection of dermal fillers it is best to only trust your face to a fully qualified, facial plastic surgeon. Dr Imani has years of experience with procedures using dermal or wrinkle fillers and his precision and attention to detail will ensure that you achieve the best possible results.
Dermal fillers are a significant advancement in wrinkle treatment. They are naturally modified forms of naturally occurring skin complex sugars, so no allergy testing is required. They have a proven safety record and are a non-animal product. The advantage of dermal fillers is that they naturally attract water molecules and hydrate the skin by holding in water, acting as a plumping agent. This is what gives a smoother, healthier glow to the skin and creates a filling effect long after the actual filler is injected. Of all the available options for substituting deep soft tissue, the naturally occurring complex sugar compounds are the most popular and have the least amount of complications.
Wrinkle or dermal fillers can be used to improve the appearance of moderate to severe facial wrinkles as well as the superficial and fine lines that are "etched" into the skin. Dermal fillers can also be used to correct certain kinds of shallow acne scars. The most common areas patients have treated with dermal fillers are the smile lines around the nose and mouth (nasolabial folds), marionette lines at the corner of the mouth, frown lines between the eyes, and fine lines around the mouth. They are also used for lip and cheek augmentation.
Depending on the extent of the treatment, the area may be anaesthetised either with a regional nerve block and/or numbing cream before each treatment. An ultra fine needle is used to inject small amounts of the filler into the mid to deep dermis. There is minimal discomfort and wrinkles and folds are plumped up instantaneously. Patients may resume normal activity immediately.
