Dermal fillers

What are dermal fillers?

Dermal fillers are products that can be used to enhance the appearance of a person’s face by non-surgical techniques, thereby avoid surgery. Over the past 10-years, Dr. De Silva has found there has been an exponential increase in the demand for filler treatments, as a consequence of technology that has offered an increased range of new, safe, science-based Filler products. The new products are able to provide a natural rejuvenation of your face, when completed by an expert offer both a natural appearance and fast recovery.

Filler treatments to the face can restore lost volume, correct volume loss and can create a fuller, more youthful appearance. In addition fillers can be used to enhance natural curves and emphasise feminine parts of the female face, Dr. De Silva’ refers to this as beautification of the female face, or enhancement of the masculine features of the face in men.

A natural rejuvenation of the face with dermal fillers allows filling and smoothing fine lines, depressions and shadows. At The Centre for Facial Cosmetic Treatments we only use the best quality hyaluronic acid that has been approved by the FDA (Gold Standard in safety).

Dermal fillers volumises, softens and hydrates your skin. It aids collagen and elastin organisation underneath the skin which gives the skin a more youthful texture. Dermal fillers refers to using a substance to fill an area of the face to rejuvenate or enhance an area of the face. Although many fillers have been proposed in the past, over the past 5-years, hyaluronic acid fillers (termed HA-fillers), have in our opinion at The Centre emerged as the ‘Gold-Standard’ in natural rejuvenation. These fillers have multiple advantages over older fillers including, existing naturally in the body (HA exists in the skin, joints and nerves), having an antidote (that can completely reserve fillers), New high-technology ‘cannula-technique’ to reduce swelling and bruising ensuring a faster recovery that older techniques.

At The Centre, Dr. De Silva has presented nationally and internationally on advising other doctors on filler treatments.

At The Centre, we only use the safest, most effective FDA-approved, naturally biodegradable dermal fillers. These are clear hyaluronic acid gels which closely mimic the natural hyaluronic acid in our skin, joints and natural nerve tissue. The filler are injected just beneath the surface of the skin and are one of the most popular treatments for filling and smoothing fine lines and wrinkles. Hyaluronic acid volumises, softens and hydrates the skin. It also aids collagen and elastin organisation underneath the skin which gives the skin a more youthful texture.

How does facial filler work?

An attractive face is characterised by smooth, round contours, high cheekbones, hollow jowls and a thin, well-defined jawline. These features together comprise the “triangle of beauty” or “heart of face”, with its base at the top and summit below. Dr. De Silva has pioneered our understanding of facial beauty with research into the application of the Phi Golden Ratio to the human face, this research has been shown on Sky News, ITV and, more recently, Channel 4. Filler enhancement provided with an artistic eye along the natural “Phi-Lines” of facial beauty, is important to provide a natural looking result.

As we age, facial fat loss, gravity, and loss of the skin’s natural elasticity conspire to reverse this triangle’s composition, leading to a narrower, less youthful forehead and temple area, and a wider, heavier jawline. Fillers including, hyaluronic acid, can restore the face’s balance and heart-shaped proportions, revolumising facial hollows and lost volume and recontouring the cheeks, cheekbones, and nose for a fuller, softer, more youthful appearance. HA fillers help to recapture the facial volume that age and weight loss can diminish. With HA fillers, an innovative injectable hyaluronic volumiser, you can enjoy a smoother more youthful appearance of your cheeks, cheekbones, and chin.

Perhaps the best indicator of the advantages and benefits of anti-ageing treatment with hyaluronic acid filler is the level to which those who have used it enjoy their results. A clinical study demonstrated that effects were present even up to 18 months after treatment.

Will I look natural?

At The Harley Street Face Clinic, we specialise in natural looking results. We believe in a natural rejuvenation and enhancement, this means conservative treatments that focus on enhancement. Before treatment the team will always spend time discussing with you the desired effect. Dr. De Silva believes in a natural and conservative in our approach and achieve a subtle effect, that can be built on if you so desire. We use different hyaluronic acid products that are intended for shaping the contours of the face, as each filler has characteristics that give it an advantage in specific areas of the face. When shaping the contours of the face the crystal-clear gel is injected into the skin in tiny amounts. A treatment takes a few minutes and the results can be seen immediately. Occasionally a touch-up treatment is required within 2-4 weeks after the initial treatment to achieve an optimal correction. The initial treatment is usually maintained with follow-up treatments approximately once a year.
