A range of dermal fillers are available and are manufactured with either synthetic or natural components. Hyaluronic acid (HA) is a natural component readily found between tissues of the joints or around the eye areas when young (think baby’s skin), but progressively decreases as we age. HA has the capacity to absorb approximately 1,000 times its weight in water. This ability plays an invaluable role in facial rejuvenation. Soft tissue fillers made with HA have the inherent capability to remain plump while feeling smooth under the skin. Using fillers made with hyaluronic acid are very popular choices in facial rejuvenation.
In addition, research has shown that collagen production is stimulated with the continued use of hyaluronic acid fillers. Collagen plays a crucial role to keeping the skin supple and firm. The working combination of these genetic components are beneficial to healthy vibrant skin. Over time, patients may benefit by having less filler and may possibly extend their sessions between scheduled treatments.
Dermal fillers are also commonly known as injectables, volumizers or soft-tissue fillers that temporarily correct noticeable conditions associated with age such as wrinkle lines and creases. Injectables are used to plump-up the cheeks, areas of the jaw, eyes and lips. The back of the hands are also suited for treatment as well.
Dermal fillers can present an excellent opportunity to turn back time without having to consider plastic surgery. As we age, we begin to visibly lose facial volume. Fillers are used to add volume to help contour the face resulting in a more youthful and refreshed appearance. Not only is the volume of the face restored or enhanced, dermal fillers can also improve skin elasticity and hydration.
Depending on the area of the face treated, skin condition and injection technique, the desired effects of fillers can possibly last up to a year. Continued treatment with soft tissue fillers will be necessary to maintain desired appearance. You may consider other treatments as well like laser skin rejuvenation or chemical peels in order to maintain results achieved by fillers longer.
Dr. Piermichele Antonino is anti-wrinkle treatments specialist who did his first dermal fillers course in the faculty of medicine of Cordoba (Spain). Then he continued his professional education of anti-wrinkle injectables during many courses of Botulinum Toxin and Dermal Fillers in London. Since then he has been working in Dublin providing treatments for both: botox and dermal fillers injections. A part of his work, from 2010 he has been volunteering in Africa during the summer periods, providing the free medical care to native patients.
Volumizers present an ideal treatment for those who don’t have a lot of time to heal or are not quite ready for a facelift. The trend for injectable treatments is growing.

Some type of pain or discomfort is almost always associated with aesthetic procedures. A little bleeding and bruising around the sites of injection should be considered a normal part of the process. Within 36 hours of treatment both pain and skin discoloration should have subsided.
