As we age, the only problem we encounter is not just lines, there is also a loss of collagen, elastin and hyaluronic acid which gradually results in thinning of skin and lost in volume and skin elasticity. The change in the facial contours and volume is quite evident along with the changes in facial bones and the soft facial tissues. The graceful, attractive and lifted triangle of youth which comprise of high and full cheeks and a contoured small chin turns into an inverted triangle of youth giving a heavy bottom appearance to face as the cheeks become flat and jowls appear. Dermal fillers prove highly effective to tackle this facial condition.

Unlike Botox which relaxes the muscles, dermal fillers give volume and fill in the static lines, wrinkles, creases or areas of volume loss. They are used as ‘volumizers’ as they plump and lift cheeks, temples, give contoured jawline, fill in thin lips and sagging hands.
There are many different types of dermal fillers available but the most common and popular dermal fillers are hyaluronic acid fillers which are natural in substance. The results of these fillers are natural but temporary. The popular hyaluronic acid dermal fillers used at CosmeDocs include Teosyal, Restylane, Juvederm and Radiesse.
Hyaluronic acid helps in improving the hydration level of skin, promotes synthesis of collagen and normal skin functioning. It is vital for the structural unity of collagen matrix, giving structural support as well as providing nutrients.
CosmeDocs approach towards facial rejuvenation with dermal fillers is to carefully examine the facial features in accordance with the Leonardo da Vinci’s 3 facial zones (Upper Third, Middle Third & Lower Third). Our clinicians are bestowed with the artistic and creative abilities along with professional experience and expertise. This gives them a ‘double vision’ according to which firstly, they carefully examine and evaluate the areas and extent of facial volume loss which they manifest to their clients (most of them are even unaware of the gradual volume loss they are having over the years) and secondly, they are able to envision the results of dermal fillers treatment prior to its administration.
Though dermal fillers treatment has been rated as the second most popular and commonly performed aesthetic enhancement treatment but it still raise scepticism and doubts in the minds of many people.
This is due to the unfavourable reports about dermal fillers treatment which lead to ‘pillow faces’ and ‘trout shaped pouts’. In addition to this, the role of dermal fillers has also been misperceived. The use of hyaluronic acid fillers as safe and effective treatment for wrinkles, lines and volume loss have been approved by the clinical studies reviewed by FDA
Basically, as the name of dermal fillers indicates they should fill up. However, they have much advanced role to play in addition to just filling up. However, they have much important and advanced role to play than just filling up wrinkles. In experienced and professional hands, dermal fillers can do subtle and refined facial sculpting and contouring.
Our highly experienced and professional doctors at CosmeDocs understand this very well and may recommend a treatment combination including dermal fillers, botox and other skin or cosmeceutical treatments to give improved and natural results. They use power of synergistic effects of different treatments in the similar manner as the artist use different colours to fill in their artistic master piece.
