INTRODUCTION TO DERMAL FILLERS

Hyaluronic and other dermal fillers work by injecting a substance into the skin that plumps up the skin around the injection site. The skin around the injection site will have a resulting fuller and more youthful appearance.

REVANESSE & RESTYLANE

Dr. Naidoo will be using both Revanesse and Restylane dermal fillers. Revanesse is a cross-linked hyaluronic acid (an ingredient found naturally in the body as a carbohydrate). Revanesse fillers are injected easily, feel more natural, are easier to shape and don’t break down as quickly as other cosmetic fillers. Both Revanesse and Restylane fillers do not contain any animal products and so the risk of an allergic reaction is minimized. When dermal fillers are injected under the skin, the gel integrates into the bodies dermal tissue. The filler then attracts and binds water molecules to add plumpness to the skin. Both Revanesse and Restylane are biocompatible and biodegradable – meaning that they will break down naturally in the body leaving no residual product.

WHAT AREAS CAN DERMAL FILLERS TREAT?

Dermal fillers can be used for a wide range of skin care concerns including: to smooth out marionette lines (the lines from the corner of the mouth down to the jaw line), nasolabial folds (smile lines), and parentheses (the lines that
run from the base of the nostrils to the chin line), to enhance & restore volume to sunken cheeks or temples, to diminish vertical lip lines, to plump & enhance the lips, to smooth out a chin crease and to improve symmetry among facial features.
