Dermal Fillers are also called ‘face fillers’ and are an increasingly popular choice for people seeking a plumper and more youthful smooth looking skin. Dermal fillers are small injections of gel, that are typically made up of hyaluronic acid (a natural component of your body’s connective tissue that maintains skins strength and elasticity), to fill in wrinkles and add volume to soft tissue. You can have dermal fillers in different parts of your face; around the eye, cheeks, mouth and jaw line, as well as lip fillers administered directly into the lip tissue.
Celebrities Medical Centre face filler treatments include the following:
Lip Filler is a popular treatment that involves injecting hyaluronic acid or collagen-based fillers into the lips to add volume and definition. This treatment is commonly used to enhance the shape and size of the lips, to address signs of aging such as fine lines and wrinkles around the mouth, and to correct asymmetry. The treatment is minimally invasive and typically involves little to no downtime. Results typically last between 6-12 months, depending on the type of filler used and the individual’s metabolism.
Cheek Filler involves the injection of dermal fillers into the cheeks to add volume, definition, and lift. This treatment can be used to enhance the cheekbones, restore lost volume due to aging, and improve the overall shape of the face. Cheek filler is typically performed using hyaluronic acid fillers or collagen-based fillers and can last between 12-24 months, depending on the type of filler used and the individual’s metabolism.
Jawline Filler involves the injection of dermal fillers into the jawline to add definition and contour to the lower face. This treatment can be used to improve the appearance of a weak or recessed jawline, to address the signs of aging in the lower face, and to create a more defined and chiseled look. Jawline filler is typically performed using hyaluronic acid fillers or collagen-based fillers and can last between 12-24 months, depending on the type of filler used and the individual’s metabolism.
As we age, we tend to lose volume in our temples, which can create a hollow, sunken appearance. Temple filler is a great solution for this issue, as it can restore volume and contour to the area. Our skilled dermatologists use a combination of hyaluronic acid-based fillers and calcium hydroxylapatite (CaHA) fillers to achieve natural-looking results that can last for up to two years.
Under Eye Filler
Under Eye Filler is a non-surgical treatment that can help minimize the appearance of dark circles, hollows, and bags under the eyes. Our highly trained dermatologists can help you enjoy a rejuvenated, fresher look using hyaluronic acid-based fillers.
Chin Filler is a popular treatment for anyone looking to enhance the shape and size of their chin. Our dermatologists use hyaluronic acid-based fillers to create a more defined, contoured chin that balances out the proportions of the face. Whether you want to add volume, improve symmetry, or enhance the overall shape of your chin, we can customize the treatment to suit your individual needs.
Hand Filler is a non-surgical cosmetic procedure that involves injecting a dermal filler into the hands to restore volume and reduce the appearance of wrinkles, fine lines, and veins. As we age, our hands lose fat and collagen, making them look bony, wrinkled, and aged. Hand filler can provide a natural-looking improvement to the hands’ appearance by restoring lost volume and smoothing out wrinkles. The filler typically contains hyaluronic acid, which helps to hydrate and plump the skin. The treatment is relatively quick and minimally invasive, with minimal downtime. Results can last up to a year.
Body fillers are used to contour and augment different areas of the body, such as the buttocks or breasts. The fillers are made of various materials such as hyaluronic acid, collagen or fat, and are injected under the skin to achieve the desired results. Body fillers are popular among individuals looking to improve their body contour without undergoing invasive surgery. The results are typically long-lasting, and the procedure is generally safe when performed by a qualified dermatologist.

Are dermal fillers safe and effective?
Just like any medical procedure, when it comes to dermal fillers, there’s always a risk on the side that makes you vulnerable to infection, discoloration, and lumps if injections are not performed correctly.
They are generally safe, if you have your injections performed by a reputed doctor, so it’s important to know the background and experience of the doctor before commencing treatment. Every practitioner has a different approach and a whole new level of experience, so do keep this in mind while arriving at realistic expectations and results before you go in for treatment.
Since dermal fillers are largely expensive, a lot of people go in for sourcing cheaper options such as self-injecting fillers which are highly dangerous. Remember that choosing fillers like these in order to save money leave you with fake, contaminated, or harmful options with dangerous chemicals. When injected, these substances can cause allergic reactions, infections, and destroy healthy skin cells.
Frequently Asked Questions About
Dermal fillers are biocompatible, injectable substances that create lift, add volume, and restore a more youthful appearance to certain areas of the face that show signs of aging.
The most common fillers are made of a soft gel consisting of non-animal hyaluronic acid. Hyaluronic acid is a sugar molecule that naturally occurs in the human body, and it is found in our skin. It helps hydrate and adds volume to the skin. It is naturally broken down by our own bodies. Dermal fillers consisting of hyaluronic acid include Restylane, Juvederm, Voluma, and Belotero.
Other fillers, such as Radiesse, consist of synthetic calcium hydroxylapatite microspheres suspended in an aqueous gel. Calcium hydroxylapatite is a natural mineral component found in bone. These microspheres stimulate your own collagen. Over time, the body degrades the calcium hydroxylapatite and gel, leaving behind your natural collagen.
Sculptra is made of a synthetic of lactic acid, called poly-l-lactic acid or PLLA. Lactic acid is also naturally occurring in our muscles after exercise. PLLA contains no animal products, and it is naturally degraded by our body’s own enzymes. It stimulates growth of the body’s natural collagen, and the results can be long lasting.
As we age, we lose volume in key areas of the face. This contributes to folds, wrinkles, hollow temples, thinning lips, sunken eyes, and an older appearance to the face. Fillers can be used to restore this volume loss, smooth out folds and wrinkles, and improve contours to achieve natural results without altering facial expression. Certain fillers can also be used to correct scars.
The effects are long lasting but not permanent. They last anywhere from 6 months to 2 years, depending on a number of factors including the patient’s age, area treated, type of filler used, quantity of filler used, and lifestyle.
Most patients experience only mild discomfort. A local anesthetic cream can be applied to the skin prior to the treatment for a more comfortable experience. Many of our fillers are also formulated with lidocaine to help minimize discomfort.
In general, dermal fillers are considered very safe. The most common reactions are redness, swelling, bruising, itching, and tenderness. These are typically mild and resolve spontaneously in 1-7 days for most patients. Other side effects are very rare.
