What are dermal fillers?

Dermal fillers help to restore a more youthful appearance and volume to various facial areas. They do not affect facial expressions or create an ‘expressionless’ look like many people think they may. Dermal fillers are a gel usually made up of hyaluronic acid, and there are many different types available for various uses. The fillers contain a natural and complex sugar chain that is safe for cosmetic procedures as naturally found in our skin. This contributes to its proven safety record. At ICCM, our range of different dermal fillers offers varying abilities and suitability. We will find the best option for you based on your cosmetic goals. Dermal fillers also have other applications, like the non-surgical rhinoplasty, which can correct minor irregularities of the nose without the need for surgery.

How are dermal fillers done?

A quick and simple procedure, the dermal filler is injected into the area being treated as the only requirement of the process. There is minimal downtime, and you may continue you on with your day immediately afterwards. Results are visible straight away and will continue to refine and improve over the following 1 – 2 weeks. Older patients may experience slight swelling or bruising; however, this will subside naturally and is able to be covered with makeup. The results can last anywhere between 9 to 36 months, depending on your lifestyle and the specific filler used. Those who do not smoke and eat a healthy diet will see much more longevity from their fillers.
