In a recent article in the Mail on Sunday, Michelle Heaton talked about having had facial dermal fillers. At 35, Michelle is considered young to be having dermal fillers but a hysterectomy in 2015 brought on the menopause overnight. This, along with weight loss, meant that her skin aged prematurely. This drop in hormone levels that comes with the menopause accelerates the ageing process. Michelle had Hyaluronic Acid dermal fillers which are harmlessly absorbed by the body after about 6 months.
What are Dermal Fillers?
Dermal fillers are injected under sunken, dry or wrinkled skin to help support and re-hydrate it. They can also be used in lips to re-shape or replace lost volume. Originally fillers were made of collagen but the most popular fillers today are made of Hyaluronic Acid.
What is Hyaluronic Acid?
The tissue that holds the skin to the muscles and underlying structures is called ‘connective tissue’. This is mainly made up of Hyaluronic Acid. When you are born, your connective tissue has a very large amount of Hyaluronic Acid in it. This gives baby’s skin the full and soft appearance.
As we get older, the amount of Hyaluronic Acid decreases in the connective tissue. The result is that the skin loses its plumpness and looks thin. People who smoke and sunbathe have accelerated loss of this substance.
Why do people choose to have Dermal Fillers?
As the Hyaluronic Acid is lost, the skin thins and the volume of the connective tissue is lost. This allows the skin to sink. The folds in the skin become deeper (deep wrinkles) or structures under the skin to show through. By injecting fillers, the connective tissue is replenished and signs of ageing improved and reduced.
Where can Dermal Fillers be used?
Dermal fillers can be used in many areas. The most common uses are :
Cheek augmentation and mid-face enhancement. Volume can be added to cheekbones to help restore definition which can be lost as part of the ageing process.
Facial enhancement – deep lines, like those from the edge of the nose to the corners of the mouth can be flattened. As can folds on the chin or around the corners of the mouth.
Lips – dermal fillers can be used to plump up thin lips, restore lost volume, balance and symmetry to lips and also hydrate them.
Hands, neck and décolletage – dermal fillers can plump up and hydrate the backs of the hands, making veins and tendons less noticeable. The same can also be used in the neck and décolletage area.
How long do they last? Are they permanent?
Hyaluronic Acid fillers are not permanent. They usually last between 6 and 12 months. Sun bathing and smoking reduces the time they are effective for.
Can the results be reversed?
Yes, it is possible to dissolve Hyaluronic Acid fillers by using an antidote prescribed and administered by your aesthetic practitioner if you do not like the effect.
