Dental Fillers - what you really need to know before filler treatment?
What is happening to your face as you get older?
To put it simple: Your face looses volume in muscle, skin and bone. Facial fat gets redistributed to lower parts of your face which causes the sagging skin of the cheek area. Facial bone loss results in retraction of the jawline, decent of the nose tip and reduced cheek bone prominence.
Together with loss of facial muscle volume, these are the main factors contributing to unwanted signs of the aging face. The most efficient and scientifically proven way to refill these areas, is by injecting dental fillers. These are made of natural Hyaluronic Acid in gel-form and are therefore considered safe and biocompatible. They can also be dissolved easily by a special solution just in case of any unwanted effect.
What dental filler is best for me?
The answer to this question depends on many individual factors and can therefore only be answered after a clinical examination as part of your consultation appointment. We offer only the two highest quality brands in the market: Juvederm and Restylane.
The hyaluronic acid gels come in different textures and fluidities to meet different needs in different areas of the face. The higher art of administering these injectable fillers, lies in knowing which filler is the most suitable for your face and certain advanced injection techniques which our board-certified dermatologist masters to highest standards.
The four major structural components of our face are skin, fat, muscle, and bone. As we age, volume loss in these structures contributes to many of the visible signs of aging. Dental fillers may help.
Over time, age-related bone loss in the face can lead to retraction of the jawline, descent of the nose, and loss of high cheekbones. The facial muscles also decrease in volume and elasticity, and deflation and movement of facial fat further accentuates the signs of aging. Finally, the skin stretches and loses elasticity — compounded by the loss of scaffolding provided by fat, muscle, and bone, this leads to wrinkles, sagging skin, and other familiar signs of aging.
Dental fillers, an injectable treatment performed in a doctor’s office, can help smooth lines and replenish lost volume, restoring a more youthful appearance.
What are dental fillers?
Dental fillers are soft, gel-like substances that are injected under the skin. They can address a number of common concerns including smoothing of deep under-eye circles, lifting of cheekbones, volumization of the lips, smoothing of lip lines and nasolabilal folds (the creases that run from the side of the nose to the corners of the mouth), and rejuvenation of the hands
Dental fillers can be composed of a variety of substances, some naturally occurring and some synthetic. One of the most common compounds used in dental fillers is hyaluronic acid (HA). HA is a naturally occurring substance found in our skin, and it plays a major role in keeping skin hydrated and volumized. HA fillers, depending on their specific chemical makeup, can last from six months to much longer before being gradually absorbed by the body.
With the right expectation, preparation and communication between you and your dermatologist, we can deliver the most naturally beautiful, and safe filler treatment results in Doha, Qatar.
