Dermal Fillers are increasingly becoming more popular as a way to fight the signs of ageing. Has the skin on your face lost its firmness and fullness? Do you have deep wrinkles, or a facial scar? If so, a dermal filler treatment may be the solution. It is the perfect way to correct some imperfections without having plastic surgery. This is achieved by replacing the lost hyaluronic acid and collagen that deteriorates over the years.
Dermal Fillers use a natural gel to smooth out wrinkles, folds, scars or blemishes to give your face a younger, refreshed and more plumped appearance. Some dermal fillers are made from a clear gel composed of a substance that is naturally found in skin; the difference between these fillers are their thickness, viscosity, and how long the results will last. The finer and smoother ones tend to not last as long, whilst the thicker fillers last a lot longer.
Lip Fillers | Lip Enhancement
These are the areas of the lip that we can enhance for you:
- The fleshy part of the upper and lower lips – offering volume, fullness and a beautiful pout.
- Cupid’s Bow.
- Philtrum ridges: These are the vertical grooves between the nose and upper lip.
- Perioral Lines: These lines appear on the upper lip and are usually associated with smoking.
Finer dermal fillers are used in the upper lip, where the skin is fine. These dermal fillers are very fine and can be placed superficially in the skin without causing lumps.
Cheek Fillers | Jawline Fillers
Cheek fillers have the power to rejuvenate the skin and help make you look younger, more refreshed and elegant. It’s a procedure that gives more definition to the cheekbones and restores volume to tired looking skin. This loss of volume can occur due to age, genetics and sun exposure. Men tend to benefit greatly from this treatment as it focuses on the three main sections of the cheek that help to maintain a masculine look to the jawline.
The thicker dermal fillers are used for the re-volumization of bulky areas such as the cheeks, or jawline. They are typically injected deeper than the finer fillers.
We only use high-quality dermal fillers that are approved by the Irish Medicine Board. Full details of all our treatment options are provided below.
Tear Troughs | Dark Circles
A deep tear trough can create a shadow that is perceived as a dark circle below the eye. It also creates a division between the lower eyelid and cheek that is an early sign of ageing around the eyes.
The skin under your eyes is some of the thinnest on your body. Dr Natalia Bratu is highly skilled in this field so she takes special care in selecting the most appropriate hyaluronic acid filler. Here at Refine Clinic, we use the Teosyal Redensity II Filler, which has been specifically designed to treat this delicate area. It neutralizes the darkness below the eye and freshens up your appearance.
It usually only takes 30 minutes to administer a 1ML syringe. Depending on how deep your tear troughs are, you may need more than 1 treatment. Dr. Bratu will advise you of this during your consultation.
After the eye area, the décolletage is the part of our body most prone to ageing. It is far more delicate than our facial complexion because it doesn’t produce as much oil as the rest of our skin and is often the first to develop wrinkles. This area, like the expressive muscles in our face, has a lot of skin stresses placed up on it from movement, weight, and exposure to sunlight.
Treatment with dermal fillers for the décolletage doesn’t just add subtle volume. It can hydrate far deeper into the skin than topical moisturisers can and works to fill the folds from within. It can also rejuvenate skin quality and revitalize skin tone to combat the visible appearance of the sun’s damage.
Many men and women are concerned about the shape of their nose, it’s normal. At Refine Clinic, we can alter the shape of the nose without drastic surgery or Rhinoplasty. Using a premium dermal filler, Radiesse 1.5ML, Dr. Bratu can alter the shape and subtly enhance and straighten the nose. It’s not unusual to think that a dermal filler would make your nose look bigger. However, this is not the case at all. The dermal filler just makes the nose more symmetrical, aligns contours, and eliminates deep grooves. By adding this filler in the dip of the nose Dr. Bratu can even out the shape.
