Dermal Fillers are injectable soft tissue products which are aimed to restore loss of volume or hydration in the skin. This treatment is commonly paired with Botox treatments for complete facial rejuvenation and in fact, dermal filler treatments are one of the most popular medaesthetic treatments around the world.

Thanks to advances in technology, dermal fillers are nowadays made of molecules which are easily recognised by the body, making the easier to break down naturally over time and reducing drastically the possibility of complications post-treatment.

The most popular type of molecule for dermal fillers is hyaluronic acid (HA). HA is the base ground of our skin and when injected, will immediately restore volume in areas where it lacks. It is the filler of choice for areas such as lips, tear trough, nasolabial folds and corners of the mouth. Its’ longevity varies between 6 and 15 months, depending on the brand used, the area injected and also the individual. At AMAI, our expert physicians use HA fillers from Sinclair Pharma, specifically Perfectha and Maili dermal fillers.

Another type of bio-degradable dermal filler molecule is Polycaprolactone; specifically Ellanse by Sinclair Pharma. Polycaprolactone has bio-stimulatory properties, stimulating the synthesis of one’s collagen once it is injected into the face.  It is recommended for areas such as the cheeks, to define the jawline and for corrections of nasal bumps. This is a longer lasting filler with longevity varying between 2 and 4 years.
