Over the past few years, dermal fillers have got more and more attention thanks to their inclusion within pop culture. Known as the “Kardashian effect”, this explosion of interest has normalised the use of dermal fillers and allowed us all to look and feel how we wish.
But, did you know that dermal fillers can be used throughout the body and are not just limited to our faces? For example, they can be used on our hands as well as our calves, to create a youthful and more natural aesthetic.
Founder of EF Medispa, Esther Fieldgrass discussed with our very own talented Dr Ivona Igerc
on Instagram Live the positive effects of fillers, what part of the body they can be used on as well as the dos and don’ts of dermal filler injections.
Dermal fillers, otherwise known as hyaluronic acid injections or simply injections are a form of anti-ageing treatment that seamlessly enhances the skin by restoring volume, lifting and plumping the areas that may have lost elasticity and firmness over time.
Ivona Igerc explains that fillers are made from a naturally occurring sugar that aids in the repair of damaged tissue. This simple non-surgical treatment is perfect for restructuring troubled areas and creating a more defined, youthful appearance.
Where can dermal fillers be applied on your face?
Over the years, the skin on your face can start to show signs of ageing through sagging skin, loss of volume and dark circles.
On your face, you can use fillers from the eyes down with use on the delicate under-eye and tear through areas which may have experienced dark circles causing the under-eye to become hollow and darkened.
On top of this, dermal fillers can be used on your cheeks for more plumpness and lift as well as your lips for a quick way to achieve the shape and plumpness.
A well-kept secret of dermal fillers is that they can be used on your nose as an alternative to cosmetic surgery. This non-surgical rhinoplasty-alternative can correct a hooked, bumpy or broken nose with zero downtime.
Dr Ivona Igerc is well known for her signature “killer jaw
” adjustments. She explains how the use of dermal fillers can ensure your jaw and chin looks slimmer, more defined and can help stop your teeth from grinding. The use of jaw dermal fillers can seamlessly stop jaw-related headaches and tension. This type of treatment is also becoming a lot more popular for men too, with clients wanting to look sharper – a big favourite of footballers and politicians she explains!
Where can dermal fillers be applied on your body?
Not many people know that dermal fillers can be used on your body too. Dr Ivona Igerc is spearheading the change of perceptions for dermal fillers as a face-only treatment.
Our hands are a telltale sign of a person’s age. Hands are possibly the hardest working part of our body and we can all be guilty of not focusing on the look and health of them. Dermal fillers can smooth, tighten and plump the skin on our hands without the need for surgery or long-winded treatments.
Dr Ivona Igerc also explains that women generally have stronger calves from wearing heals which can lead to unwarranted shape overtime. Dermal fillers can also be used in this area to create a beautiful and, well sought-after shape as an alternative to surgery.
Where should you get dermal filler treatment?
Dr Ivona Igerc explains that many injection-type treatments can age badly as they don’t adjust with your body’s natural way of ageing. Thankfully, dermal fillers at EF Medispa
are bio compostable and they fade and adapt as your body or face changes over time.
She also goes on to explain how EF Medispa is one of the UK’s first dermal filler Medispa’s and how we have built a trust with our clients, doctors and surgeons for almost two decades.
