#idrecommends : DERMAL FILLERS

The success of dermal fillers rests in the plethora of different fillers available to suit different needs. By injecting dermal fillers into the face, you can create a smoother, fuller, and more contoured facial shape by smoothening the wrinkles and reducing the depth of the folds and hollows of the face. Filler is also used to define, shape and augment the lips. It is hugely popular as a treatment to restore and re-volumise lips that may be thinning due to the natural ageing process.

Filler can be used to augment cheeks to enhance their shape, add volume to the nasolabial fold and laughter lines, increase volume to fill out gauntness in the lower cheek or temple area, as well as filling out depressions under the eye area. Facial asymmetries, down-turned mouths and jawlines that require definition can also be effectively addressed with dermal fillers.

There are hyaluronic acid fillers – like Juvederm or Restylane - which, simply put, work by absorbing water to create plumpness or fullness. Different fillers, depending on their consistency, are used to contour different areas of the face. ‘Thicker’ fillers are used in areas where you need structural support such as the temple, cheekbones, jawline and chin. Whereas fillers with a ‘thinner’ consistency are used on the nasolabial folds – that run from nose to mouth – and the marionette lines around the mouth.

Other fillers, such as Radiesse and Sculptra, work by stimulating the production of new collagen over time, forming a lattice within the tissue that provides a framework for your body to produce its own collagen.
Who is a suitable candidate? ▫️Someone who is keen to maintain a youthful ‘fullness’ of face or someone who is bothered by facial asymmetry, a down-turned mouth or lips or a jawline that needs more definition.

What results can I expect? ▫️This depends on the desired result. Most of our patients want to look fresher, with lines smoothed and cheeks slightly lifted and subtly contoured. You should look exactly like yourself but refreshed, more youthful with the skin and/or lips imperceptibly ‘plumped.’
Is there any downtime? ▫️This is individual to the patient and filler used, but generally speaking, there may be a little bruising, redness and swelling. We advise that patients avoid strenuous exercise for 24 to 48 hours to minimise swelling, as well as sleeping upright on their back, but most resume regular activities immediately after the treatment.
How long do results last? ▫️Between 3 months and 2 years depending on the filler used and where in the face it is administered.
How much is it? ▫️Prices start at €650.
What patients say: ▫️
‘I have been seeing Dr. Ryan for years! From acne to Botox and Fillers! She is AMAZING! I could never trust anyone else with my skin! BEST DERMATOLOGIST HANDS DOWN! She takes the time to explain procedure to me and makes sure that I am well aware of everything that is going on. I love the fact that she goes with the subtle look when injected versus the "she had her lips done" look. No one knew what I had done, I kept getting questions like Have you changed your hair? Is your make-up different? This is the kind of response I want from friends and family!’ Staci.
