Dermal Fillers

Dermal Fillers..A natural, safe and long-lasting beauty lift
Impressions of beauty change over time, as do our faces as we age. One of the great advantages of Dermal Fillers is that they are long-lasting but not permanent. You always have the choice to continue or change the combination of treatments, and the procedure can be repeated as often as you like. You are always in charge of your looks.

So what exactly are Dermal Fillers?

Dermal Fillers are substances designed for injection into the skin or underlying tissue, in order to either repair, hydrate or lift it!  They are a copy of naturally occurring particles present in our own skin and body, and therefore pose very little risk of stimulating an allergic response.  In fact, the new generation of Dermal Fillers do not even require a patch test prior to undergoing treatment. They not only offer the patient an immediate aesthetic improvement, but also offer longer term skin and tissue repair!  The improvement is generally very natural and tailored to suit the individual’s aesthetic requirements.  The level of correction achieved from injecting Dermal Fillers is volume dependant, and if there are a variety of defects requiring correction, there may be a variety of different Dermal Fillers used to achieve the best cosmetic result.

There are a number of different groups of fillers but the two most commonly used in Ireland are

Hyaluronic Acids -

such as ‘Restylane’, ‘Belotero’, ‘Emerval’ and ‘Juvederm’.

Calcium Hydroxylapatite -

known as ‘Radiesse’

The Hyaluronic Acid Fillers are a manufactured copy of the Hyaluronic Acid that naturally occurs in your skin.  It hydrates and stimulates repair depending on the depth at which it is injected.  Hyaluronic Acid is a very important component of your skin and can deplete with age therefore, putting in more, is generally a good thing! Hyaluronic Acid Fillers come in different thickness in order for the practitioner to tailor the amount of lift, repair or hydration in an area. Small molecules can be injected throughout an area i.e. the face, neck, chest or hands, to improve the quality and hydration of the skin.  This is know as Skinboosting and is an excellent option to improve the quality and texture of the skin. It is carried out in a series of treatments scheduled between 2 and 4 weeks apart.

The medium molecule sized Hyaluronic Acid Fillers are generally used to eliminate or soften lines and wrinkles, or add some volume or shape to the lips, whilst the large size molecules are used for ‘lift’ or for adding ‘volume’ to an area.   We stock a wide range of Dermal Fillers at Body Benefits, as our Aesthetic Practitioners have favourites from many ranges which they use to correct and improve areas in the face and body.

Radiesse – is generally considered a volumising filler.  It has an excellent ‘lifting capacity’ and is used for Facial Volumising i.e. a Liquid Facelift.  It can also be used for 3D Vectoring to lift negative vectors or sections of the face with the use of tiny strands placed along the weak segments that need support.  When injected into the Dermis, Radiesse causes neocollagenesis (stimulating the growth of the person’s own collagen) offering a gradual more long term improvement to the skin along with the immediate lift. As well as being an excellent facial volumiser, Radiesse offers amazing results in the hands, especially if there is significant volume loss.
