Dermal Filler

Dermal Filler

Dermal Fillers have had a dramatic impact on Cosmetic Medicine in the last decade. The products get better and safer. The results are more natural and profound.

Dermal fillers are made from a simple sugar called Hyaluronic Acid which naturally occurs throughout the body. In our youth we have plentiful supply and production of Hyaluronic Acid (HA). As we age, our ability to produce HA diminishes. In turn, we lose hydration and volume in our skin. This is a major effect of ageing which produces many of the concerns we see in the mirror.

Common concerns treated by dermal filler include:

  • Wrinkles
  • Cheek Volume and Definition
  • Lip Volume and Definition
  • Jawline Definition
  • Jowls
  • Scars
  • Facial Shaping
  • Sagging Skin
  • Chin shape
  • Many more

Using Dermal Fillers we can replace lost HA in specific areas to address specific concerns. We choose from a range of dermal filler products to select the best product to address your concern. There are several brands of dermal fillers available in New Zealand including Juvederm, Restylane and Emervel. For more information about Dermal Fillers, please talk to Dr Wilkinson at your next appointment.

Dermal Fillers are a gel containing hyaluronic acid that is injected by a healthcare professional into or below the skin to smooth facial wrinkles and enhance lips by restoring volume and fullness. Do not have Dermal Filler injections in an area where there is a non resorbable implant or if you have irritated or infected skin, allergy to hyaluronic acid or other severe allergies, autoimmune disorders or hypersensitivity to local anesthetic or porphyria. Caution if you have a bleeding disorder, if you take medicines that prolong bleeding time, have had poor results with previous similar injections, have angina combined with rheumatism or a tendency to large scar formation. Dermal Filler treatments may result in some redness, swelling, pain or tenderness, itching and/or bruising which may last a few days. Inflammatory reactions can last up to two weeks in rare cases. See your healthcare professional if any side effects concern you. Exposure to excessive sunlight or extreme cold should be avoided until redness or swelling has resolved. Dermal Fillers are not recommended for people taking blood thinning medicines and they have not been tested in pregnant or breast feeding women. ALWAYS FOLLOW THE INSTRUCTIONS YOU ARE GIVEN.
