What Are Dermal Fillers?

By Martin Kinsella on January 4th, 2024

Dermal Fillers are a type of nonsurgical cosmetic procedure that can help you achieve a more youthful appearance and a more defined jawline – backed by science. These injections involve the administration of substances just under the skin to plump up wrinkles, smooth lines and restore volume to the face.

Why are Dermal Fillers Used?

As we age, our skin loses collagen and elastin, which can lead to wrinkles and fine lines. Dermal fillers restore a more youthful appearance by filling in these areas to achieve tighter, firmer skin.. Dermal fillers can also enhance the appearance of your face and so you may choose to get dermal fillers for many other reasons, such as:

What Dermal Fillers do re-enhance use?

There are several different types of dermal fillers available. At re-enhance, we use MaiLi and Teoxane, which both use hyaluronic acid (HA). HA is a natural substance found in the body, which makes it safe and effective for most people. HA fillers are also temporary, which means that the effects will eventually wear off.

What is MaiLi Filler?

MaiLi Filler is a cutting-edge dermal filler that uses hyaluronic acid (HA) to give you tighter and firmer skin. Unlike traditional fillers that require larger volumes to achieve visible results, MaiLi Filler’s unique formulation delivers remarkable improvements with minimal product.

The key to MaiLi Filler’s effectiveness lies in its advanced spring-like technology, which mimics the body’s own collagen structure. This allows for a more natural and long-lasting effect, as the filler gradually integrates into the skin over time.

What is Teoxane Filler?

Teoxane dermal filler is another revolutionary filler, distinguished by its unique preserved network technology. This method preserves the long chains of HA molecules found naturally in the skin, allowing for a more dynamic and natural-looking filler. Teoxane fillers are able to adapt to facial movement and stresses, providing more natural and long-lasting results. 

Teoxane fillers come in various strengths, ensuring personalised treatment tailored to specific concerns. With their clinical proven safety and effectiveness, Teoxane dermal fillers can target specific areas of the face and give you a more defined jawline, tighter skin, and restore any lost volume.

How do Dermal Fillers Work?

Dermal fillers are injected under the surface of the skin using a fine needle. The procedure is typically quick and comfortable, with most patients experiencing only mild discomfort. The filler material is then evenly distributed into the desired area, where it immediately begins to plump and smooth out the skin.

Who is Suitable for Dermal Fillers?

Dermal fillers are a very popular cosmetic treatment option that can be safely and effectively used by most individuals. While the natural production of collagen and elastin begins to decline around the age of 25, dermal fillers can be administered to individuals above the age of 18 who are seeking to enhance their appearance and remove imperfections.

Dermal fillers are also a suitable treatment option for anyone in their late twenties or older who desire to improve their appearance and address signs of ageing.

If you are considering dermal filler treatments, it is recommended to avoid smoking and maintain good physical health.

What are The Benefits of Dermal Fillers?

  • Instant Results: The results of dermal fillers are typically visible immediately and full results can be seen within a few days as any swelling subsides.
  • Administered by Experts: Only a trained professional can safely administer dermal fillers. At re-enhance, we have over 20 years of combined experience, so you can be sure that you’re getting the best results, all within a safe and relaxing environment.
  • Minimal Recovery Time: While some mild bruising and swelling may occur, these side effects are typically temporary and resolve within a week or two.
  • Long-Lasting Results: Dermal fillers offer long-lasting results, ranging from six months to a year, depending on the specific filler and the area treated.
  • Natural-Looking Results: Many people choose dermal fillers at re-enhance because we provide a more natural look that compliments your unique features.

How can you Prepare for Dermal Fillers?

  • Avoid blood thinners
