What are Dermal Fillers?

 Article by Dr Ravi Jain

We all think that we are going to be 20 forever and  as we reach our 50s inwardly we feel no different so managing our looks to match how we feel is becoming more important.  Whilst we can exercise and eat sensibly to keep our bodies in good shape, our faces can tell another story. 

 Ideal Filler should have the following properties

Dermal fillers have become popular among both men and women seeking a younger look but do not want to go down the route of cosmetic surgery. There are many different types of dermal fillers available today which makes it difficult for consumers to pick their way through all the products on offer.  But safety is the number one priority and the ideal filler should have the following properties
o    Clinically proven safety  – the latest dermal filler may not be the best, or the safest,  you need to be sure that the product has been well tested and ideally FDA approved which means it has undergone some of the most rigorous testing in the world, like Restylane 

Flexibility- your face changes as you age

o    Non-permanent – you need to retain flexibility and control over your looks because your face changes as you age.  Besides beauty trends come and go and you do not want to land yourself with a look that you may regret in years to come.

o    Tissue friendly – minimising rejection by the skin. Permanent synthetic substances or implants can lead to ridges and bumps forming under the skin making it feel hard and not very natural. Your skin should look natural and soft.

o    Non-animal – minimising the risk of allergic reactions and avoiding the inconvenience of a skin test which usually takes place two weeks prior to treatment.

o    Hyaluronic acid – the buzz word in dermal fillers and indeed skincare, hyaluronic acid has important skin health functions and has now largely replaced collagen.

Restylane® is one of my preferred dermal fillers which I use at the Riverbanks Clinic because in addition to the above, it has a superb safety track record and has a range of products all designed to be used in combination in different levels in the skin to give optimal long lasting results. 

 Instantly restores youthful volume

 Restylane instantly restores youthful volume by supporting the skin’s structure to treat the signs of ageing. It has the added benefit of stimulating collagen production and improves skin elasticity.

I always advise my patients to view their first Restylane treatment as an investment – providing the foundation onto which to enhance their looks and build good skin quality.  The first treatment is always the big one because thereon after the objective is to maintain the effect, not create it. 

Once you have achieved correction with Restylane, it is important not to let the results disappear entirely before another treatment. The trick is to return 4-6 months following your first treatment for a top up.  This top up really boosts duration and your treatment results should last in excess of a year. In some of my regular Restylane patients, duration extends to around 18 – 20 months.
