Dermal Fillers are commonly known as filler, collagen injections, and hyaluronic acid injections. Dermal fillers help to restore our skin and facial contours to their former youthful appearance, or enhance/ plump particular areas to more aesthetically pleasing. Often used in the lips, cheeks chin, nasolabial folds (nose to mouth lines), ageing hands, and in some case contour the face and fill deep scars. Dermal fillers have many applications so it’s important to learn about what they can treat.

At Karidis we use Juvéderm® VOLUMA an advanced, cohesive, 3D hyaluronic acid matrix dermal filler, manufactured by Allergan (hyperlink) a semi permanent volumising gel which is completely broken down within the skin over a period of months, eventually leaving no trace of the filler. It can be used for re-contouring and restoring the face in the case of age-related volume loss. Mr. Karidis does not condone using permanent fillers.

The main ingredient of the injections used in our clinics includes a form of hyaluronic acid. These treatments are probably the simplest and most commonly performed around the world. Hyaluronic acid type fillers are available in many guises through a multitude of companies. There are some variations between them in terms of longevity due to changes in a part of the molecular structure of each, however this is usually slight. Furthermore there is variation in terms of likelihood of allergies or reactions. The most common types of injectable fillers we use are usually Juvederm, Voluma, Restylane, Perlane, Restylane touch, Sub-Q, Vital, Belotero etc. Depending on your particular problem and circumstance we will advice what type of filler would be appropriate for you.

Open Close

Juvederm is currently the most common type of injectable we use in our clinic. Juvederm is a family of injectable gels composed of non-animal stabilised Hyaluronic acid. Various Juvederm type products such as Ultra, Plus and Voluma differ in their consistency and are used in different circumstances. They mainly consists of complex sugar chains, which have been stabilised for longer lasting effect in the skin. It is biodegradable and is non permanent. The manufacturing process of Juvederm products is similar to the production of insulin or antibiotics. When combined with the body's own Hyaluronic acid, it creates volume for the treatment of lips, as well as other lines or wrinkles. It basically acts by restoring your skin’s volume, creating softness and revitalizing your appearance.It contains no animal ingredients and therefore no skin test is needed.

What is the clinical experience behind Hyaluronic Acid fillers?
Open Close

Hyaluronic acid fillers (or HA fillers) have been in use in various guises for over 20 years. Millions of injections have been administered and are thus the benchmark for clinical excellence in their field. Their safety and efficacy are clinically proven and supported by robust clinical data, spanning 20 years. Research and development on these fillers is however continuous.

What are the benefits of Injectable Skin Fillers?
Open Close

Injectable fillers can instantly soften telltale aging lines or improve your looks by enhancing your natural features, such as your cheeks or lips. They also restore volume, improve skin elasticity, and smooth niggling lines and imperfections.

How do they work?
Open Close

Injectable fillers are usually a crystal-clear gel produced biotechnologically using stabilized, non-animal hyaluronic acid and water. The hyaluronic acid is a tissue-friendly substance closely resembling the hyaluronic acid that occurs naturally in skin and the body. By replenishing nature's supply of hyaluronic acid, these revitalize and plump up the skin, instantly diminishing the appearance of lines and giving a softer look.
