What are the different types of dermal fillers?
Non-surgical filler treatments have revolutionised the aesthetic industry. As a fuss-free alternative to surgical procedures, fillers now coexist alongside other anti-wrinkle injections as one of the most popular cosmetic treatments today.
Dermal fillers offer a natural lift and fullness to problem areas that may have lost collagen and don’t appear as they once did. This treatment helps patients to feel younger and fresher, revitalising their overall appearance.
Dermal filler brands
Cosmedics offer a range of dermal filler treatments, including a selection of trusted filler brands. These include:
• Profilho Filler Range
• Juvéderm ULTRA Filler Range
• Juvéderm Volite, Voluma, Volift, Volbella
The Juvederm range are types of dermal fillers that are used for the treatment of wrinkles enabling it to be tailor made for the depth of the wrinkles. Thicker fillers are used for deeper lines and softer lighter fillers used for the more superficial finer lines.
The Profilho filler is the newest filler on the market with unique properties that allow it to create a much softer hydrating effect. Patients love the ‘try before you buy’ aspect of Profilho as subtle natural and lasts about 4-5 months.
We offer both here at Cosmedics, offering our patients a wider variety of options when it comes to their dermal filler treatment. Both products use a gel made with hyaluronic acid to plump up and refresh the skin. Both are non-surgical filler treatments, popular for being noninvasive and quick.
Types of dermal fillers
There are many types of dermal filler treatments available, each a non-surgical alternative to botox and becoming increasingly popular.
Some of the most popular types of dermal filler include:
Lip filler treatment, also referred to as lip enhancement, has become one of the top applications for modern dermal fillers. Cosmedics find that most of our patients want a natural-looking lip enlargement as opposed to something that looks excessive.
With this in mind, it is important that an especially skilful approach is adopted with fine attention to the shape of the lips, not just the size. We therefore only use soft natural gels such as Restylane® and Juvederm® at Cosmedics Skin Clinics. These contain an anaesthetic so the procedure is now virtually painless when the filler is injected into the lip.
8 point filler facelift (including lift to cheeks, jowls and mouth)
The 8-point facelift uses advanced dermal fillers not to restore volume but to lift the tissues and structure of the face to produce a more youthful profile.
Many people wonder what the 8 points of an 8-point face lift actually are. These are precise injecting sites that help to form the overall facial structure (cheek/bone structure, tear troughs, nasolabial fold, mouth corners, prejowl area, jawline and lower cheeks).
Cheek and chin enhancement
We offer both cheek and chin enhancement dermal fillers at Cosmedics. Chin enhancement involves BELKYRA® (Kybella), an injectable product which is based on deoxycholic acid. Deoxycholic acid is produced naturally in the body, where it works to help the body to absorb fat. The treatment is designed to treat ‘submental fullness’, which means dissolving excess fat beneath the chin.
Non-surgical nose jobs
Many patients are unhappy with the shape of their noses, but nose surgery is an expensive, long and sometimes complicated option. Non-surgical rhinoplasty can often be a better alternative to nose jobs. For the right patient, non-surgical nose jobs using dermal fillers are safer, faster and pain-free.
Frown lines and deeper lines and wrinkles
Anti-wrinkle injections are an effective treatment to reduce facial lines and wrinkles. Injectable anti-wrinkle treatments are a quick and convenient way to smooth out those lines on the forehead and around the eyes and mouth without any need for surgery. Cosmedics have been offering this treatment since 2003, so you can trust us for outstanding treatment results as well as safety.
