Dermal fillers address permanent wrinkles and visible volume loss around the face. They are made of hyaluronic acid which is a natural component of the skin. Well placed dermal fillers provide volume where there are deficits, and help with your skin’s elasticity and resilience. This provides a natural lift and softening of wrinkles which has the effect of improving your overall appearance.

With age, the amount of hyaluronic acid in the skin decreases more quickly than it is replenished. This loss allows static lines to form in areas where a lot of expressive movement occurs. Dermal fillers are particularly useful when looking to restore this volume. The improvement effect the hyaluronic has on the tone of your skin is often not mentioned but should be recognised.

With great skin, comes greater confidence. At Amara, dermal fillers are among our best friends in the friends in the fight against the visible signs of ageing.

 

What are static lines?

Static lines are those you see when your face is still. If you notice wrinkles when making a straight face, then these are likely static lines which have formed due to movement over time. While part of this is the natural ageing process, lifestyle factors like smoking and not wearing an SPF daily contribute to the formation of these folds.

Why are people concerned with static lines?

Static lines are the result of permanent changes to our appearance that occur naturally over time. While some static lines add character to our faces, for the most part they age us. Static lines also contribute greatly to a tired and jaded look that might not align with how we feel.

It is for these two reasons that people are most concerned about static lines and wrinkles. The aged and tired look is the main motivation for clients visiting us seeking dermal filler treatments.

What are dermal filler injections for?

Dermal filler injections are used to treat 3 different concerns in facial aesthetics:

1. Reducing static or permanent lines

Dermal fillers are used to treat permanent or ‘static’ lines of the face. Static lines are those you see when your face is still. If you notice wrinkles when making a straight face, then these are likely static lines which have formed due to movement over time.

Common static lines include:

Nasolabial Folds
The lines from the corner of the nose to the corner of the mouth.
Marionette Lines
The lines from the corner of the mouth that track down to the chin.
Oral Commissures
The lines at the corner of the lips and the edge of the mouth.
Smokers Lines
The fine lines above the top lip that are a result of smoking.

 

2. To restore definition or volume

Dermal fillers may be used to to restore definition or volume to parts of the face where the natural ageing process has caused a volume deficit to appear.

Commonly treated volume and definition concerns are:

The Lips
Correctly proportioned and shaped lips are a focal point of the face. By adding volume in the correct places a lip filler treatment can balance your lips and make them more attractive.
The Cheeks
The cheeks frame the face and in terms of facial structure are a critical anchor point for other parts of the face, offering support and being critical in overall facial appearance.
The Tear Troughs
Volume deficits, discolouration and sagging under the eyes age us terribly. Restoring volume to the area will improve definition, tone, and help address visible signs of ageing around the eyes.
Jowls and Jaw
Correctly placed dermal filler can strengthen the jawline, squaring it and adding definition to your face.

 

3. To correct asymmetries, imbalances and unevenness

Dermal fillers are commonly used to add correct asymmetries of certain parts of the face. Some of the most common asymmetries we treat in Amara are:

Lip asymmetry
Lip filler treatments can enhance lip volume, reshape the lips, restore volume to thinning lips, and rebalance asymmetries.
Non-Surgical Rhinoplasty
Nose filler treatments address deficits and bumps in the nose, giving the nose a more even and straight appearance.
Chin Augmentation
Chin filler treatment allows correction of minor overbites by projecting the chin and re-proportioning the distances between the mouth and chin.

 

We use only high quality FDA approved products with a preference for the Juvederm Vycross range of dermal fillers because we can stand by their safety and efficacy.
