Dermal Fillers

As our skin ages, we lose dermal collagen, which is a type of fibrous protein that connects and supports skin, bone, tendons, muscles and cartilage. We also lose fat under the skin (subcutaneous). This results in characteristic contour changes in the facial profile and wrinkles.

With current technology, our highly trained dermatologist, Dr. Rahat Azfar, is able to restore your youthful appearance by removing your static wrinkles and lines, rejuvenating your profile, adjusting mild asymmetries and improving skin defects and scars.

Dermal fillers can be used to plump areas that look gaunt due to age, weight loss or stress. Fillers can also erase or significantly reduce the appearance of lines and creases in the face. Products that perform these functions can be broadly classifiable into either biodegradable or non-biodegradable.

Biodegradable fillers can last anywhere from 6 to 12 months, whilst the non-biodegradable fillers can last between 3 to 5 years.

Examples of dermal fillers that we use include

  • Juvederm®
  • Sculptra®
  • Restylane®
  • Radiesse®
  • Belotero®

What are facial implants used for?

Dermal fillers can be used in reconstructions for areas that may have been scarred or altered by trauma or where patients seek to improve the appearance of certain facial areas such as:

  • Frown lines (glabellar lines)
  • Smoke's lines (perioral lines)
  • Marionette lines (oral commissures)
  • Worry lines (forehead lines)
  • Crow's feet (periorbital lines)
  • Deep smile lines (nasolabial furrows)
  • Smile lines (nasolabial lines)
  • Cheek depressions
  • Lip enhancement
  • Witch's chin (chin augmentation)
  • Acne scars
  • Facial scars

Which dermal filler is right for you?

When considering dermal fillers, the first step is to have a full skin consultation and customized treatment protocol recommended to you by a highly trained dermatologist. Patients Medical's Dr. Rahat Azfar has many dermatologist of experience with dermal fillers, injectables and other treatments for wrinkles or signs of aging.
