When Do We Recommend Tissue Fillers?
Tissue Fillers are typically recommended to:
- Replace lost volume in the cheeks, temples and other parts of the face
- Removal of the tear trough or the appearance of “bags” under the eyes
- To reduce the depth of the nasolabial lines (the deep lines that form between the nose and the mouth)
- Enhancement of the contour of the lips or increasing the volume of the lips
- To remove lines around the mouth area (smokers lines, marionette lines and lines around the lower jaw)
- Perform facial sculpting procedures such as jawline, chin and lip augmentation.
- Strengthen sagging earlobes
Through the above procedures Tissue Fillers assist with ageing changes in the skin as well as volume loss (changes in the fatty deposits of the face that are critical to shape and contour).
Sunken eyes, eye bags, saggy, loose and dehydrated skin will immediately appear revitalized. The face will appear fuller and more youthful. Lips will be defined and full, effectively reversing the unappealing signs of aging. A variety of other conditions can be treated with a range of products, which your specialists will gladly assess for you. Even misshapen noses can be improved without surgery, using soft Tissue Fillers in skilled hands.
How Do They Work?
The two most commonly used forms of Tissue Fillers are either Hyaluronic Acid or Non-Hyaluronic acid bases. Hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring substance in our bodies that helps to add volume and hydrate the skin. The gel-like substance is injected into the areas of volume loss, giving an immediate improvement in the appearance of deep wrinkles and facial folds, and so a more youthful and radiant appearance. The result of a single treatment is immediately noticeable and can last up to a year. Lips will be redefined and fuller, giving you a more desirable mouth. Non-hyaluronic acid fillers, such as Radiesse®, use a gel suspended with calcium hydroxyl appetite crystals. *

DISCLAIMER: BEFORE AND AFTER IMAGES
Suitability, effectiveness of certain treatments and aesthetic results will vary from patients to patients. All photos of before and after are actual patients of The Face and Body Place unless stated otherwise. We do not give indication, promises or guarantees to all our readers or website and social media visitors that they could reasonably expect for themselves identical or equivalent or similar results to those portrayed in the “Before and After” photographs. Suitability, Effectiveness and aesthetic results may and can vary from one patient to another.
What Is The Typical Course Of Treatment?
After examination and discussion of the desired outcome, the product will be injected with a fine needle or cannula into the subcutaneous tissue. This is a relatively pain-free procedure and will take no more than 15-20 minutes. An anaesthetic cream may be applied prior to the procedure, either by request or at the specialist’s discretion.
What Can You / Can’t You Expect From The Treatment?
Results are visible immediately after treatment. Slight redness and swelling may occur at the injection site, but most people can go right back to their normal routine. You can reapply your make-up immediately, so no one ever needs to know you have had anything done. The longevity of the results is dependent on many factors, including your age, the area injected the quantity of product used as well as your overall health and lifestyle. They are not permanent, and in some instances last up to 6 months, while results lasting 2 years have been reported.*
What Are The Unwanted Effects / Risks Of The Treatment?
Following the treatment, you might experience slight redness, swelling or bruising at the injection site. This is temporary and can easily be covered with your normal makeup a day later. Hypersensitive reaction to Hyaluronic acid is rare. However, do not hesitate to contact your Specialist should you have any other side effects as all skin injection procedures carry a risk of infection, even in the most stringently clean environments.
When Do We Advise Against It?
Tissue Fillers should be used with some caution in those prone to scarring, or with sensitivity to Lidocaine or Hyaluronic acid. If you fall in that category, be sure to inform your specialist, since alternative tissue filler products are available. Hyaluronic acid fillers aren’t recommended for patients with Porphyria, untreated epilepsy, children under the age of 16 and pregnant or lactating women.
Teoxane Tissue Fillers
Teoxane is the first dermal filler company to put facial movement at the heart of its products with:
- A unique manufacturing technology (preserved network technology) that preserves the dynamic long chains of HA naturally found in our skin and requires minimal cross-linking to achieve desired filler properties; for a range of fillers adapting to facial movement and stresses that closely resembles the hyaluronic acid found in your skin.1
- Testing methods that go beyond the limits of static, traditional rheological measures and incorporate movement into the equation (dynamic adaptability scores), helping HCPs better predict gel behavior once injected.
