They are an increasingly popular tool to enhance facial aesthetics due to their properties. Hyaluronic acid injectables are relatively inexpensive compared to surgery. They are not permanent and can also be dissolved if you don’t like them. There is absolutely no down-time involved and you can get fillers done in 30 minutes.

Why do people get fillers done?

Do you want plumper or more balanced lips?

Are you looking for a more prominent chin?

Do you think your jawline should be sharper?

 

The indications of dermal fillers are cosmetic in nature. There are some indications like filling up acne scars where they border on medical reasons, but the primary reason has still has to do with improvement in appearance.

We did a survey with a long list of clients from Mumbai on the reasons why they chose to get dermal fillers done. The various reasons that were presented by respondents were:

  • I have my wedding soon
  • I have a glamour job and need to look attractive
  • I wanted to feel better about myself
  • I want to look younger
  • other

The overwhelming majority of answers show that most clients wanted to feel better about themselves! Lip fillers, or any kind of dermal fillers help you enhance your look without getting an unnatural appearance. This is obviously provided that your aesthetic dermatologist is very well trained and has a deep sense of aesthetics. We assure you of this with the specialists available at a SkinGenious clinic.

 

95% of the respondents came to repeat their filler with our specialist.

Client stories

I tried botox and fillers for the first time in my life recently, in my late 50’s. I had visited for another issue, but then discussed my wrinkles and the signs of aging on my face when I saw some print material regarding it in the lobby.

 

Doctor presented botox and fillers to to me as an option. What I really liked was that there was no attempt to sell me anything, just answers to my questions. I asked to see some photographs of results which I was shown and then decided to go ahead.

 

It’s just amazing. I lost 15-20 years for my face. Two days after the injections, my wrinkles were gone and the whole face got lifted with the fillers. I spent less than 50,000 rupees. I’ve come to repeat the treatment for wrinkles as fillers are still lasting 5 months after the first treatment and my face is lifted up.

I’ve allowed the use of my photographs for before and after. Thank you so much!

I had been reading up about fillers on the internet for quite a while before I decided to visit Dr. Aakriti at SkinGenious Colaba. I had visited to get lip fillers and jawline shaping done. I was trying this for the first time in my life.

 

I just wanted to experiment and see if it helps improve the way I look. Dr. Aakriti put me so much at ease. She understood in detail why I wanted to do the fillers and told me I don’t need to do as much work as I wanted. She did an assessment and said I need very subtle changes that will help me feel better without looking unnatural.

 

She was absolutely right and I loved what she did for me with my lips and jawline. It cost me less than I had planned for. I’ve allowed them the use of my before and after pictures. I have found my go-to skin specialist for life.

The costs hence vary a bit, but in the below table we share the transparent starting prices for one syringe, which is enough for some target areas. In others, we have mentioned it in the price table if average requirement for the area is more than a single syringe.

What are dermal fillers? - How they work

A dermal filler is a gel-like substance that is available in an injectable format in a pre-formed and packed syringe. Each syringe of a dermal filler in Mumbai is of 1ml quantity.

(what a dermal filler syringe looks like)

 

There are different kinds of substances that dermal fillers are made from. These include Hyaluronic acid, Polymethylmethacrylate (PMMA), Poly-L-lactic acid and Calcium hydroxylapatite (CaHA).

 

All these types of fillers are approved for use by the US FDA. However, in India, including Mumbai, only Hyaluronic acid fillers are approved, which is why these are the ones we will discuss in further detail.

 

Hyaluronic acid is a natural substance that is also available in the body under normal circumstances. It is present in the extra-cellular matrix and found throughout the body. However, around 50% of the hyaluronic acid that is present in the human body is in our skin. Its normal function is to retain water and it helps in hydration.

 

Dermal fillers should only be injected by a trained aesthetic dermatologist or surgeon.

 

They are injected under the skin to help you gain volume, support certain structures in your face and also enable contouring of the face. The areas under the skin where a dermal filler is injected include:

  • Into the dermis (which is a layer of the skin)
  • Subcutaneously (under the skin)
  • Into the supra periosteal region (just above the bone)

Once injected, the inert filler stays in the region till it is metabolized by the body (6-18 months, depending on the individual as well as kind of product injected). They hence, pull the connective tissue structures at desired angles or simply add volume. Since the change they bring needs to be precise, it is very important for your specialist to understand the dermal planes and predict properly how the fillers will affect your appearance. We assure you that the dermatologists at SkinGenious are highly trained at injecting and are specifically selected based on these abilities.

Dermal fillers are therefore a safe option for enhanced facial aesthetics and can be explored by you with confidence.

 

Procedure

  • The first step in your dermal filler treatment in Mumbai is to meet your aesthetic dermatologist at the consultation. They will understand your needs and expectations and also evaluate your existing facial contours and lines.

 

  • You will need to provide a proper history to your skin specialist. In case you are on blood thinners or pain killers, it will increase your chances of bruising and your specialist will need to know this before going ahead.

 

  • Your skin specialist will share the plan with you about how many fillers, in which areas and what contours they believe will help you. Once the plan is mutually agreed to between you and your dermatologist, they will most often apply a local anesthetic to the areas to be injected. Lidocaine is also present within most of the dermal filler injections.

 

  • The most popular brands of dermal fillers available are Restylane & Juvederm. Belotero is also available. All these brands are similarly priced and are trusted and approved brands. Your specialist will inform you of which brand they are using and why.
 
  • After this, you go ahead with the injection. The gauge of a dermal filler needle is between 27-32. The higher the number, the thinner the needle. To give you an idea, the needle used for drawing blood samples usually has a gauge of 21.

 

So basically, the needle is really thin. Combined with the topical anesthetic, you will hardly feel the prick. This again is a part of the expertise of your specialist and you will definitely understand the difference when you meet one of our experts.

    Benefits over other methods

    Augmenting your facial features without changing your natural appearance is a personal choice and is increasingly popular given the benefits of dermal fillers.

    The only viable alternative to achieving similar results as dermal fillers is cosmetic surgery. The benefits that fillers provide over surgery are:

    • It costs lesser
    • It is not permanent, can also be diluted before the natural course if so desired.
    • There are relatively no complications considering that it is not a surgery and there is no general anesthesia. Dermal fillers are minimally invasive unlike surgery.
    • Dermal fillers can be completed in 30-60minutes unlike surgery!
    • There is no down-time and you can get immediately back to your life after the treatment.

    Risk and side effects

    Hyaluronic acid fillers are inert substances and therefore the chances of complications are minimal. The risks associated are the same that you have with any other injection

    • Bruising may occur in some cases. This will normally subside within 1-2 days.
    • Swelling may sometimes occur at the site of injection, but this subsides within 1-2 days even if it does occur
    • If you have a bleeding disorder like hemophilia you should avoid dermal fillers.
    • There are other complications possible in case the filler is injected into a blood vessel, but this would not happen with a good injector.

    These are the reasons why you should ensure that your fillers are performed only under the supervision of a really good dermatologist. They can ensure the minimization of these risks and also put you at ease regarding how to handle them, given the minimal chances that they do occur.

    What to expect

    It is important for you to have realistic expectations when you are going in for any cosmetic treatment. It is the same with dermal fillers in Mumbai. Dermal fillers can help you lose years from your face and also help you look more attractive without changing the natural appearance of your face.
