As part of our expert panel series, we would like to re-introduce you to Dr Marco, our highly experienced Practitioner performing Anti-Wrinkle Injectables. This is part 2 of our 2 part blog with Dr Marco (if you haven’t already read part 1 you can do so here), where he fills us in on the most popular areas for Dermal Fillers, how they work and the safety precautions that should be taken. Which areas are you finding the most popular with clients for Dermal Fillers? The trend has changed. Fillers were used to address fine lines and wrinkles, whilst the tendency is now to inject fillers to plump and support particular areas of the face to give back a younger and healthier look. Cheek Fillers are very popular. As we age, the cheeks deflate and excess skin falls toward the jawline, making this the widest part of the face is now at the jawline. Replacing the volume lost and supporting dermal structures will restore that youthful appearance lost with the aging process. Lip enhancement is also very popular and it is mainly used to improve the appearance of the lips and their overall shape and volume. Another treatment with fillers becoming increasingly popular is tear trough dermal filler to help improve concerns with eye bags, dark circles, sunken and tired looking eyes. Tear trough filler can completely transform a patient’s face from tired and sunken to looking bright, rejuvenated and awake. This treatment is provided into a very delicate and sensitive area therefore has to be performed by a highly recommended and experienced Practitioner. What safety precautions should you take when having Anti-Wrinkle Injectables or Fillers? To ensure a good experience, before any Anti-Wrinkle Injectable or Dermal Filler treatment you should select a Doctor and a clinic who are reputable and certified. A well performed Anti-Wrinkle Injectable and Filler treatment is highly related to the skills and techniques of the injector, so do your research and find a Doctor who specialises in facial anatomy and has been successfully administering Anti-Wrinkle Injectables and Fillers (with few patient complaints and/ or complications) for several years already. Be transparent with your Doctor. For your safety, tell your Doctor as much about your medical history as possible so he/she can determine whether you are a good candidate. Tell your Doctor:
- What medication, supplements, herbs, etc. you are taking
- What allergies you have
- If you have any medical conditions, illnesses, or diseases
- If you have or will have any medical procedures (i.e. recent surgery, other treatments, etc.)
- If you are pregnant, breast-feeding, or trying to conceive
- If this is your first time getting Anti-Wrinkle Injectables or Fillers, tell your Doctor.
