Dermal Filler Treatment
Dermal Filler is the most common aesthetic procedure to help restore the lost volume or fat due to the ageing process. It can also be used to enhance features of certain areas like lips, cheeks, jaw line, chin and nose. The most commonly used fillers are made using Hyaluronic acid, which is naturally found in healthy skin and works due to its ability to bind with water. The effects of fillers can last 6 to 9 months.
They can also be used for profile balancing, contouring and reshaping features to help balance the facial proportions.
Areas that can be treated include:
- Lips 2. Chin 3. Cheeks 4. Jaw 5. tear trough 6. temple 7. forehead 8.brow 9. nose.
Pre-treatment preparation is important to minimise risks and unwanted side effects. Patients must be fully informed to ensure that their expectations are realistic.
Written informed consent must always be obtained, and pre-treatment photographs should be obtained when possible. A complete medical history is always necessary and should cover allergic or hypersensitivity reactions to any substance, including anaesthetics.
LET US TAKE YOU THROUGH THE 3 STAGES OF THE WHOLE PROCESS
This is relatively a very safe procedure but BOTOX® is a prescription only medicine and must only be prescribed after a face-to-face assessment of a person by a medically qualified, and licensed practitioner. The assessment must include assessing the patient for the Body Dysmorphic Disorder BDD. General side effects include malaise, nausea, influenza-like symptoms, severe headaches, and exposure keratitis and rashes. Ptosis; dropping of the eyebrow or eye lid is an important side-effect occurring in patients treated for glabellar rhytids and can last for several weeks. Hyaluronic acid may cause adverse side effects or allergic reactions, all patients will be expected to do a patch test before they start using any new skin product. People who are administered injections containing hyaluronic acid may experience the following side effects, which should clear up within a week.
- Pain: [insert]
- Redness: can take 24-72 hours to resolve.
- Itching: [insert]
- Swelling: can take 3-5 days to resolve.
- Bruising: bruising appears immediately after the injection; it resolves within 5 to 10 days.
Patients with rosacea are at higher risk of post-injection erythema and should be warned about this prior to treatment.31 Another common skin condition affecting the epidermis is psoriasis, a multifactorial immune-mediated reaction resulting in skin itching, redness and thickening, dermal fillers can precipitate psoriatic flareups. Other inflammatory skin reactions such as hypertrophic, keloid scarring and post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation can be initiated by a dermal filler. Injecting a filler into a blood vessel can cause vascular occlusion (blocked blood vessels) which leads to diminished or no blood supply to a particular area of the skin causing necrosis (skin death) resulting in permanent scarring and serious infections. Injections and other treatments must only be carried out by a trained medical profession who is aware of the risks including Vascular Occlusion. There are reported cases of immediate permanent BLINDNESS after use of dermal filler in certain areas. A granulomatous reaction can be defined as a chronic inflammatory response that appears at all injection sites at the same time or at least 2 months after treatment; it can persist for at least a further 2 months. Dermal fillers based on Hyaluronic acid are preferred for high-risk areas like the nose, because in cases of mis-injection, vascular occlusions or other complications, hyaluronidase can be administered to rapidly break down the hyaluronic acid, thus significantly reducing the risk of any permanent damage. The clinic and the practitioner must adhere to all safety protocols as established by the ACE(insert full name), to avoid any risks.
