Dermal stimulator fillers are used to restore volume loss due to lost facial fat, for example through ageing or illness. They are also used to enhance volume in areas like cheeks, temples and hands.
At Áda we use dermal stimulator products from Galderma and Merz companies. There is also Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) from Regen that is an autologous dermal stimulator.
It is used to grow volume in the skin, which will help reduce signs of ageing. Especially in thin faces or people who have lost facial fat (lipoatropy).
This product is approved for treating HIV patients with facial fat loss associated with their anti-viral therapy. For such patients the cost of product and treatment is subsided by the Australian National Health System. Certain requirements need to be met.
A more recent use has been to treat the Upper chest or the décolletage to reduce the vertical creases seen in the middle of the chest between the breasts.
The product is injected under the skin where the tiny particles are dispersed and start to stimulate dermal cells to grow new collagen. This process is not immediate, but gradually you will see results develop, usually after 6 weeks and up to 6 months post-procedure.
No, the tiny particles are biodegradable, meaning the skin’s normal enzymes will break them up. But it is a slow process that may take 2 years or more.
Due to the slow break-up of the product particles we anticipate that most people will only require top up treatment around 2 years later.
Yes, all consultations, treatment plans and injections are completed by our experienced aesthetic physicians. No ‘dermal injectors’ or nurses complete these treatments at Áda clinics.
In a small number of cases small nodules may be felt or seen shortly after treatment (because the product stimulates new collagen). This may not need any treatment as it will dissolve with time, or if it is visible you may need a collagen dissolving injection.
A very rare complication is delayed or late onset of swelling or nodules some months after treatment. This will require more active treatment to remove.
This product can add significant volume to an ageing or thin face, hence creating more support for the skin. The end result of this added skin volume is that the facial contours are improved, rejuvenating the facial appearance.
Our doctors will advise you whether you would be suitable for this or another treatment option.
It can be used to add volume and contour the ageing face. However, it is not used around the eyes or lips. Its main use is in the mid-face, cheeks, lower-face, chin and jaw line.
At Áda this dermal stimulator filler is the treatment of choice for treating ageing hands. This product will restore volume of thinning skin to hide the prominent veins, bones and tendons.
The tiny biodegradable particles are suspended in an elastic gel matrix. The product is injected under the skin, where there is an immediate volumising effect followed later by a more gradual simulation of the skin cells to grow new collagen. This adds volume to the thinning, ageing skin and provides more support to the overlying skin so it has a tightening effect.
We anticipate up to 12 months for most people before repeat treatment is required.
At Áda Aesthetic Medicine only our experienced aesthetic physicians will complete your consultations, treatment plans and injections. No ‘dermal therapists’ or nurses are used at Áda clinics.
Initial bruising and swelling are the main temporary side effects, which usually clear within 2 weeks.
Longer-term side effects are rare, such as prolonged swelling that may take up to 2 weeks to clear. Firm lump or nodule formation is also a rare side effect that may require treatment if visible.
