Dermal Facial Fillers
Dermal Facial Fillers
Under eye fillers are regularly obtained as a rejuvenation treatment. Despite the popularity of under eye fillers, not many patients know the details about this procedure. If you are curious about the inner workings of under eye fillers, please read the information provided by our team below.
What Are Hyaluronic Acid Gel Facial Fillers?
Hyaluronic gel filler – a treatment also called hyaluronidase – is a support fluid found naturally in human tissue, which when depleted causes wrinkles. Hyaluronic gel works with the body’s own hyaluronic acid reserves to create volume, smooth lines and folds or fuller lips leading to an anti-ageing effect.
Hyaluronic gel fillers contain no known allergens or animal proteins. This means there is no need for a test dose. Treatment is immediate. They come in the form of a clear gel, which is placed in small amounts into the mid layer of the skin. The gel can address a loss of volume, since it adds natural volume to those areas where the body’s own hyaluronic acid has been depleted and smoothens the surface. It is almost like a fat pad being placed in an area where volume has disappeared.
Once The Filler Is Injected, How Long Do They Last?
Most patients can enjoy the results of facial filler for a minimum of six months; this can be as long as eighteen months depending on the patient’s lifestyle, age, and other factors that could play an important role. Of course, result duration is different from patient to patient.
Where Are Facial Fillers Used?
Under eye fillers are quite popular, but this type of filler can be used in other locations too. The areas of the face that can be treated with facial fillers (under eye fillers) are the lips and lip border to create definition or a fuller more voluptuous look if desired, as well as lines around the mouth such as oral commissures, bleeding lipstick lines and naso-labial lines or folds. In the upper part of the face, fillers can be used to treat lines beside the eyes (crow’s feet) and glabellar (frown lines), as well as provide cheek augmentation.
Hyaluronic gel filler can now be used as a tear trough filler too. These are the areas under eyes where there is shadowing or dark circles under the eyes. The filler lifts this area reducing the shadowing and giving a less tired appearance.
Hyaluronic gel fillers can also be used to firm and strengthen the jawline as well as the marionettes, which are the areas down from the corners of your mouth reducing the sour look and giving a more youthful anti-ageing appearance.
Acne scars and other depressions can be filled and made smoother with the use of dermal filler. It can even be used to reshape the nose in some cases.
The augmentation effect of thicker hyaluronic acid gel fillers in patients can last two years, but individual results vary. It is an ideal filler for full face rejuvenation – which includes the treatment of the eye area, fine lines, dark circles, and other common signs of ageing – and backs of hands.
What Are Polyacrylamide Facial Fillers?
Polyacrylamide more long-term gel fillers are a revolutionary product for aesthetic surgery. This unique gel is injected under the skin of the face using a fine needle, where it immediately fulfils its purpose. A simple and gentle alternative to surgery that can provide a natural result.
It can be a fuller mouth, more beautiful and more prominent cheekbones or smoothing a fold at the corner of the mouth. It can be the dream of having a flat nose lifted, perhaps lessen the visibility of an unsightly scar or eradication of an asymmetry due to injury. Polyacrylamide more long-term gel filler settles as a soft filler under the skin where it is injected.
Immediately after the injection, the doctor can manipulate the area so the contours are exactly as they should be. After a short time, it feels as if it was a natural part of the skin. The gel however is not absorbed into the skin. This means that the procedure does not need to be repeated after a few months, which is the case with other methods. The gel stays exactly where it has been placed, and this is what makes this filler unique. Aesthetic corrections with polyacrylamide more long-term gel filler need neither hospitalisation nor general anaesthetic. In some cases, the doctor will use a local anaesthetisation for the area that is to be corrected, but normally this is unnecessary.
At first, the corrected area may be a little tender and swollen, but this usually subsides after a day or two. You should be able to return to work immediately, but it is advisable to avoid direct sunlight or extreme cold for the first two or three weeks.

What Are The Risks Of Polyacrylamide Fillers?
The polyacrylamide fillers have been used in The Dr Lanzer Clinic since 2002. Most patients who have this filler generally enjoy long-term results.
Chances of complications with polyacrylamide fillers are generally low. There is always a chance of an allergic reaction or infection, but Dr Lanzer has not yet encountered this in his clinic.
Polyacrylamide is a theoretical toxin but is only present in a minute dose; this means it should not affect the patient negatively over time. However, the patient can experience a little discomfort on the area where the injection is given.
Dr Lanzer also offers Platelet-Rich Plasma treatments to rejuvenate and slow down the aging process.
