Dermal fillers

• Inducing the natural production of collagen •

Dermal fillers

Dermal fillers are absorbable, injectable products. During resorption, tissue stimulators induce the natural production of collagen par l’organisme.

Thanks to this neo-formed collagen, the skin gains elasticity and partially tightens (lifting effect).
The skin texture is also improved (reduction of pores, reduction of fine lines). The skin appears naturally plumped due to a moderate increase in volume.

The facial areas treated include the oval of the face, the cheekbones, the temples, the hollows of the cheeks, the nasolabial folds,…
The areas of the body treated include buttocks, arms, thighs, tummy,…
All benefitting from a lifting effect, an increase in volume and a reduction in cellulite.
Finally, dermal fillers rejuvenate the back of the hands by concealing veins and hollows.

There are several dermal fillers with slightly different qualities:

  • polycaprolactone combined with carboxymethylcellulose (Ellansé®) allows an immediate and lasting increase in volume, in addition to the collagen-inducing effect.
  • polylactic acid (Sculptra®, Lanluma®) or calcium hydroxyapatite (Radiesse®) does not give an immediate increase in volume and the synthesised collagen mesh only restores slight volume.

Choosing the best dermal filler depends on your face.

In practice…

Dermal filler injections take place in the consultation room like for hyaluronic acid injections sessions.
One to 3 sessions, spaced 5 to 8 weeks apart, are necessary to achieve the desired result. Then, depending on the case, a maintenance session is required every 12 to 24 months.

Before the session
  • Remove makeup ;
  • Avoid taking aspirin or any other blood thinners for 10 days prior to injections.
During the session

The injections are almost painless. Depending on the areas treated, local anaesthesia may be offered, either by the application of an ointment or by fine needle injections. The dermal filler is then injected either with the fine needle or with the flexible cannula.

The procedure lasts 10 to 40 min depending on the indications.

After injections
  • Immediate return to normal activities
  • Apply ice and gently massage the treated areas several times a day for 5 days
  • Avoid taking aspirin or other anticoagulants for the next 10 days

Some mild side effects are possible, including small hematomas or redness at the injection site that disappears within a few day.

The results are very satisfactory and perfectly natural.

Dermal filler results can be combined with those of hyaluronic acid or botox.
