With aging, lines and wrinkles appear on your face, and creases become more prominent because the skin starts losing collagen which is essential to keep the skin fresh and youthful. However, it is not impossible to get rid of these fine lines, depressions, and wrinkles. Dermal fillers, also known as Injectable fillers, can help reduce various signs of aging, but they may not treat all kinds of aging signs. They are effective in reducing facial lines and wrinkles and restoring contours, resulting in a more youthful and rejuvenated facial appearance. Fillers are becoming increasingly popular among men and women who want to reverse the signs of aging to look younger.

What are Dermal Fillers?
Dermal fillers Dubai are natural or synthetic injectable materials that are injected directly into the skin to remove all aging signs like wrinkles and depressions. They are used to plump up the skin and treat cheek structure, nasolabial folds, tear troughs, jaw-line, receding chin, and smoker’s lines, etc. Injectable fillers fill in the deep folds that appear on your skin as you age and create fuller lips. Previously, collagen was a common ingredient for fillers, but now there are various options including hyaluronic acid-based fillers like Restylane.
Types of Dermal Fillers
There are several types of injectable fillers Dubai. The difference lies in their chemical make-up, softness, and longevity. Your dermatologist will determine the best suitable type for you. The different types include:
Temporary dermal fillers: This type gets absorbed in a few months and delivers short-term results. If you are not satisfied with the results, you only have to wait for a few months for the effects to disappear. You will need to have repeated treatments to maintain the results.
Semi-permanent or permanent dermal fillers:These fillers last longer. Semi-permanent fillers are partially absorbed, while permanent fillers are not absorbed and remain in the body.
Collagen-based fillers: While collagen-based injections were once popular, hyaluronic acid-based fillers are now more commonly used. They are further divided into two types – human-derived collagen and bovine-derived collagen fillers. Collagen is a naturally occurring protein found in the body that supports skin, bones, joints, and ligaments. Bovine-derived collagen is extracted from the tissues of cows whereas human-derived collagen is harvested from human skin removed during surgeries. They are bio-compatible and therefore do not require pre-treatment allergic tests.
Hyaluronic acid-based fillers: Hyaluronic acid is naturally found in the body and acts as a moisturizer. It supports and lubricates the skin by binding water. Hyaluronic acid-based injections mimic the effects of natural hyaluronic acid and replenish your body’s natural hyaluronic acid. Hyaluronic acid-based dermal fillers that are normally used to treat lips, nose, cheeks, under-eyes, and chin include;
- Restylane: It helps in smoothing wrinkles and plumping the cheeks and lips.
- Juvederm: It improves the facial contours and reduces the signs of aging.
- Teosyal: This filler improves skin quality, treats wrinkles, and adds volume to the face, similar to other hyaluronic acid-based fillers.
- Perlane: It treats wrinkles and makes your skin smoother.
- Perfectha Deep Fillers: Also known as French Fillers, perfectha deep fillers remove deep wrinkles and furrows, restore the volume and fullness of skin, and help in lip augmentation.
Fat injections: Fat injections are a form of injectable filler, but they involve a different procedure compared to other fillers. Most of the patients prefer off-the-shelf fat injections but they require a comparatively more extensive procedure. This procedure involves extracting fat from body areas that have denser fat like the abdomen, buttocks, and thighs through liposuction. The extracted fat is then processed and purified fat is injected into the treatment areas. Fat injection is a minor surgical procedure.
Dermal injectable fillers are most commonly used on the face, under the eyes, cheeks, nose, jawline, hands, buttocks, and lips.
Facial Fillers: They reduce and eliminate the wrinkles or fine lines on the face and rejuvenate the facial skin.
Under Eye Fillers: These are typically hyaluronic acid-based fillers designed to treat volume loss under the eyes, with results that can vary in duration.
Cheeks Fillers: Juvederm and Restylane are the two common cheek fillers that increase the volume around your cheekbones.
Nose Fillers: They are hyaluronic acid-based fillers injected into the nose to alter its shape according to the patient’s needs. The technique of using nose fillers is also known as non-surgical rhinoplasty.
Jawline Fillers: They are effective in jawline contouring and provide you with a more defined and sculpted neck. You can get a slimmer jawline by opting for jawline fillers. The most effective and FDA-approved jawline fillers are Juvederm Voluma.
Hand Fillers: Hand fillers can help rejuvenate the skin on your hands, though results and suitability can vary. They remove the sagging skin, restore the lost volume and give your hands a youthful appearance. Radiesse filler is the most preferred choice for hand fillers.
Lip Fillers: You can get lip fillers as a non-surgical treatment for lip augmentation. They not only restore the volume of lips but also enhance their structure and shape. Juvederm hyaluronic acid-based fillers are mostly used as lip fillers in Dubai.
Body Fillers: Dermal fillers like HYAcorp fillers are most commonly used for body contouring. Therefore, they are also referred to as body fillers.

- Your nose has minor deformities like nasal humps (nose surgery might be an option for you).

How to Prepare for the Treatment?

- Avoid using blood thinners.
- It’s crucial to thoroughly discuss your medical history, including any allergies or previous reactions to fillers or anesthetics, with your doctor.
- Get all the prescribed tests done.
- Discuss your concerns with your practitioner.
The procedure of injectable fillers is simple and short. It includes the following steps:
- The first step of the procedure typically involves a facial evaluation and discussion of desired outcomes. The skin expert will examine your face and will mark the injection sites.
- Then the treatment areas will be cleaned using an antibacterial agent.
- After that, the treatment area may be numbed using a numbing cream or local anesthesia, depending on the patient’s comfort and the practitioner’s recommendation. The discomfort caused by injectable fillers is mostly bearable by patients.
- Small amounts of filler are injected at the marked sites.
- After injecting filler, the treatment area is slightly massaged and markings are cleaned off.
Dermal fillers can result in a more youthful facial appearance, though individual results may vary. The outcomes can be effective but are mostly temporary, typically lasting for 6 to 12 months, though some fillers may last longer. However, in some cases, they may last longer, even for two years.
