A Summary Of Australia’s Best Cosmetic Injectors for Anti-Wrinkle Injections (like Botox), Lip Fillers, Dermal Fillers and More.

What Are Dermal Fillers?

Dermal filler injections are a non-invasive method used to treat lines, volume loss and facial contours. In this article you will learn about dermal fillers and lip fillers in Melbourne including what they are, how they work and the different types available.

Everything you need to know about hyaluronic acid fillers

We all want to look our very best, and whether this is to reverse the signs of aging or to enhance features, hyaluronic acid has your back. Some of us may be concerned about hollow cheeks, thin lips, deep lines, lack of facial structure, or the balance of our profile. Traditionally these concerns were corrected surgically, where the results were more permanent, expensive and required a lot of downtime.

Hyaluronic acid has offered us an alternative to looking our best. The naturally occurring sugar found in our body offers us a minimally invasive option for creating volume, contouring and filling wrinkles.

So what is hyaluronic acid?

Hyaluronic acid (HA) is a naturally occurring substance that our cells make, and is present in high concentrations in our skin, accounting for 50% of HA in the body. The gel like substance is hydrophilic, which means that it attracts and holds onto water molecules to plump and hydrate tissues. By attracting large amounts of water per HA molecule, the skin stays hydrated, plump and youthful looking. HA can actually hold up to 1000 times its weight in water!

Younger skin has an abundance of HA, however as we age the amount of HA present in our skin diminishes, leading to a visible loss in volume and hydration. Other contributing factors that relate to ageing is that fat, muscle and skin becomes thinner, resulting in lines, folds, wrinkles, thin lips and sagging skin or sunken features. How can HA fillers help?

HA gel based fillers, such as those used at Dermaq Aesthetics, have similar properties as the substance made by our bodies depending on the ‘thickness’ of the gel. Not all HA fillers are made the same, thicker fillers offer more ‘lift’, and are best used for areas such as cheek bones or the chin where projection and contouring is the main goal. It helps to think of thick contouring filler as a substance that is similar to bone as it offers structural support to overlying soft tissue.

A thinner, more flexible filler is ideal for areas that are involved in movement, such as the lips. The flexibility of a thinner filler means that it lasts longer due to its ability to move with the area, hence links that hold the gel together do not break easily when movement occurs.

A thick dermal filler can help:

  • Contour the cheeks
  • Balance side profile by increasing chin projection
  • Add definition to the jawline

A thin dermal filler can help:

  • Volumize the mid-cheeks
  • Plump and hydrate the lips
  • Fill permanent lines/wrinkles
