The best filler treatment is one that doesn’t make its presence obvious. Our dermatologists have perfected the art of volume correction – be it for augmentation of lips, reversal of lines, or hand and feet rejuvenation.
A healthy production of fat, elastin, collagen and hyaluronic acid supports the skin and keeps it well hydrated. However, with age and lowering of collagen production, the facial features sink, lines and wrinkles start to appear, and folds develop. Laugh lines may appear, while lips may lose volume and begin to thin out. Soft, smooth hands could start looking bony and wrinkled.
Putting back what time takes away from the face. Bringing back the touch of youthfulness to your hands and feet. Enhancing the fullness of lips. Whatever your aesthetic goals, it is comforting to know that the region’s leading team of dermatologists have at hand a spectrum of advanced dermal filler solutions that grow more specialised by the day.
To gain a better sense of how dermal fillers go about their job, let us understand what precisely they fill in for.
Restoring youthfulness to the face
As we age, our faces naturally lose subcutaneous fat which cushions the underlying muscles. The facial muscles are then working closer to the surface as they move to create various expressions, impacting the visible layer. Every line and every crease becomes more apparent. The unique expressions that are part of every individual’s personality, gradually set in to become part of their look.
Meanwhile, other factors such as genetics, sun exposure and lifestyle add their own touches to the signature set of lines. Bone resorption occurs with age, especially in the periorbital area (around the eyes) and the jaw. This leads to loss of support and adds to facial sag.
However, you do not need to live with the lines or the sag. Dermal fillers can make all the difference – on their own, or in combination with other services such as Botox®, PRP (platelet rich plasma) rejuvenation therapy, and our non-invasive thread lift treatments.
Bringing fullness to lips
Lips come in various shapes and contours. Not everyone is in love with the lips they are born with. Genetics play a major part in determining what a pair of lips looks like and how they shape up.
One may be born with thin lips. Or, time tends to deplete lips of fullness too. As collagen production winds down with age, lips tend to lose volume and turn thinner. Meanwhile, lines begin to appear, showing up as ridges which only get more visible as lipstick settles in.
This is where fillers come in to create or restore the youthful look.
Handing youth back to feet and hands
The natural ageing process takes away the smooth texture and full contour of hands and feet. Veins and joints begin to show up as skin thins and subcutaneous fat disappears. Here again, science can fill in for nature.
Rejuva Dermal Filler Solutions
Dermal Fillers or Soft Tissue Fillers are injectable implants used by dermatologists to restore volume in areas that have sunken in. Dermal Fillers work from within to support the skin and fill out the creases, for a smoother, firmer and more youthful look.
Dermal fillers are injected with a very fine needle below the area where the skin has sunken in, to add volume. So as to mimic nature, firmer fillers are used for sunken cheekbones and softer ones for making the lips look fuller. While the scientific principle is simple, it is the expertise of our dermatologists in bringing art and science together that achieves the perfect look.
How Rejuva Dermal Filler Solutions work
At Rejuva, our dermatologists study the ever-evolving field of dermal fillers, testing and evaluating specialised offerings from leading laboratories the world over and drawing upon this vast spectrum to engineer their own application techniques.
Hyaluronic acid is an important natural constituent of skin with moisture-holding capacity. It keeps the skin hydrated, to add smoothness, suppleness and plumpness. With age the production of hyaluronic acid slows down. The skin now starts getting drier and loses suppleness and volume. To compensate, hyaluronic acid-based fillers are expertly added back into skin at precisely identified locations to bring back contour, fullness and suppleness. Fillers plump up the area, providing support to the upper layer of skin and making it look taut. Dermal fillers injected below deep folds can iron out the creases on the skin, making the skin look smoother, firmer and brighter.
Another type of filler that has come to be popular has the unique ability to encourage collagen production. It consists of Calcium Hydroxylapatite (CaHA) microspheres suspended in an aqueous gel carrier. Once injected, it provides immediate volume and correction but continues to work by stimulating the body to produce its own natural collagen. Over time, the gel is absorbed and the body metabolizes the CaHA microspheres leaving behind only your own natural collagen.
What you can look forward to?
Our dermal fillers add volume to correct age-related mid-face volume loss, characterised by flatter cheeks and sagging skin, to help create a more youthful appearance. Neck lines – the horizontal lines that grow more prominent with age, can be filled and aggravation prevented.
Lips are relatively trickier to treat. They have a network of intricate and dense blood vessels, and are constantly in motion. Our dermatologists craft their treatments with specifically designed fillers and focus specifically on natural, effortless mobility. Fillers add more fullness and bring plumpness to thin lips. They can even smoothen out the ridges to restore the satin smoothness typical of youthful lips. Smokers lines around lips can be treated with dermal fillers in combination with Botox®.
A specialised filler treatment even makes the veins on the back of the hands disappear. It firms and plumps the thinned skin, creating a full, natural layer that virtually makes the veins disappear beneath the surface.
Subtlety and post-treatment ease are most important. The best filler treatment is always one that doesn’t make its presence felt.
Results last for approximately 6 months.
