There is nothing worse than the Hollywood ‘overdone’ look. It would appear that many of the faces your see in media have had repeated and too-evident cosmetic procedures, becoming a caricature of their former selves and looking quite unnatural.
If they look that bad on TV or in magazines; just imagine how weird they must seem in the cold light of day!
The key to successful use of Dermal Filler is an artistic hand to engineer an entirely natural looking result, and this is exactly what Dr. Lisa Fay of Cosmetic Doctor in Dublin is known for.
Her work is so subtle and natural looking that most of her clients are under the radar, because their work is not artificial or self-evident.
How Dermal Fillers can make you Gorgeous
Dermal Fillers are used to restore youthful fullness to your face. They can be used to plump up thin lips, enhance shallow contours or soften those facial creases and wrinkles.
Many of the benefits of a surgical facelift can be effectively achieved by dermal filler, without any of the risk, expense or downtime.
Unlike surgery, you cannot cut off badly sagging skin through non-surgical means. You can, however, add volume to areas of the face where it has been lost due to the ageing process, and these often tautens the skin to avoid sagging as the facial volume is increased using a dermal filler, at a far lower cost than surgery.
These treatments aren’t permanent, however, and they must be repeated and maintained as the dermal fillers eventually get broken down and leave the body.
Some dermal filler are used in conjunction with other skin rejuvenation treatments such as injections of botox. Your plastic surgeon will assess your needs and recommend one or a combination of treatments to achieve your desired results.
There are many different types of dermal fillers, and it’s usually a combination of these that is used to provide the most balanced, subtle-looking results.
Hyaluronic acid is a natural substance found in your body. High concentrations are found in soft connective tissue and in the fluid surrounding your eyes.
It’s also in some cartilage and joint fluids, as well as skin tissue. If the name sounds familiar, it’s because the same substance is often injected into the aching joints of people with arthritis to ease pain by providing extra cushioning.
Hyaluronic acid is not derived from animal sources. Brand names include: Juvéderm, Perlane and Restylane.
Calcium hydroxylapatite is the ‘heaviest’ of facial fillers and it’s found naturally in human bones. This mineral-like compound, made up of tiny little calcium microspheres, is used to fill the deepest creases such as nasolabial folds, marionette lines and frown lines.
It’s also used to enhance fullness of the cheeks and other facial contours. Calcium-based microspheres are suspended in a water-based gel. Brand names include: Radiesse.
