A dermal filler is any product injected under facial lines to plump them out, or into the lips for fullness. There are many different dermal fillers available today. At Vie Institute we take great care in researching all products before we offer them to our clients. All products or procedures that we recommend must give honestly good results, must be long lasting, must look natural and have minimal problems associated.
Government regulations prohibit us from using trade or brand names these days. So it is difficult to explain the differences between the many different dermal fillers in text. For a detailed explanation of the many dermal fillers available today, please take advantage of the free consultation offered with our very professional and highly qualified nurse aestheticians.
Our nurses are full time injectors – they have more experience than any other on the Coast, and they are available every day – Monday to Friday.
Dermal fillers are primarily used to improve the appearance of fine facial lines, deep nasolabial lines and marionette lines and some types of scars. They can also be used to add a fuller, more sensuous look to the lips.
Injectables are usually not sufficient for severe surface wrinkles on the face, such as multiple vertical “lipstick lines” that sometimes form around the mouth, though they can provide a temporary lessening of the lines. For deeper lines, your surgeon may suggest a resurfacing technique, such as chemical peel, dermabrasion or laser treatments. Rather than filling in the lines, resurfacing methods strip away the outer layers of the skin to produce a smoother appearance.
Deep folds in the face or brow caused by over-active muscles or loose skin may be more effectively treated with muscle relaxants or facelift or browlift procedures. Dermal fillers are sometimes used in conjunction with facial surgery procedures: however dermal fillers alone cannot change facial contours the way surgery can.
Crows feet lines and frown lines are usually better treated with muscle relaxant treatments.Keep in mind that your surgeon is a specialist who can offer you the full gamut of the most advanced treatment ranging from cosmetic surgery, refinishing techniques, laser therapy and dermal fillers. You may decide that a single procedure or a combination of procedures is the best choice for you. Our registered nurses can help you with information on all of these procedures, and help you to decide which procedures will best suit you.

The most important fact to remember about most dermal fillers is that the results are not permanent. Injected material is eventually metabolised by your body. In some individuals, the results may last only a few weeks: in others, the results may be maintained indefinitely. Researchers believe that age, generic background, skin quality and lifestyle as well as injected body site may all play a role in the length of time the correction is maintained.
Permanent fillers will permanently remain in your tissues, but the surrounding tissue continues to age – lines deepen and the lips turn inwards and thin. Therefore you will need re-treatment often at one to two year intervals.
Facial rejuvenation is very individualised. That’s why it is important to discuss your hopes and expectations before treatment begins. If you suffer with an auto-immune disease, are allergic to local anaesthetic or are pregnant – you may not be a suitable candidate. If you are unsure, our Nurse Aestheticians can answer all of your queries. Feel free to take advantage of our free consultations.
All dermal filler treatment should be relatively pain-free experiences. A topical anaesthetic cream may be applied to the area to be treated, or for sensitive areas such as the lips, a local anaesthetic may be injected.
This is one arena that really sets us apart from the rest. Our nurses take special care to ensure that your experience is a pleasurable one.
