Ageing is a natural and an irreversible process. The skin shows the first signs of aging to the world as it develops fine lines and wrinkles. One also tends to lose the volume and laxity of the skin which makes it look even more saggy and aged. We often dream of looking as young as we feel.

People wish to attain a smooth, flawless and a youthful appearance, but not all are ready to undergo a surgical procedure for the same.

What Is


Fillers are a type of minimally invasive aesthetic medicine used to add volume, alter the contours of the face, and fill in wrinkles. This helps to add a youthful appearance to the skin. The use of fillers is not just restricted to the face as it can be used in the neck, the hands and even feet. They are an excellent anti-ageing treatment that help patients to acquire their previous youthful looks.

Why Does

One Need Fillers?

One can need and use fillers if the following issues arise out of ageing:

  • There are lines and wrinkles around the mouth (smile and frown lines), around the forehead and around the eyes (Crow’s feet).
  • There is a hollow appearance to the cheeks or the overall face which indicates a loss of volume.
  • Acne, Injury or congenital imperfections have left scars and depressions.

B – Adding volume to areas like the cheekbones can create a more defined contour.

What Are

The Different Types Of Fillers Available?

There are three types of fillers commonly used:

  • Temporary fillers
  • Semi-permanent fillers
  • Permanent fillers

Temporary Fillers

  • Collagen-Based Fillers: Collagen is a naturally occurring protein that adds strength and structure to the skin. 
  • Hyaluronic Acid-Based Fillers: Like collagen, hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring substance and primarily used to promote fullness and volume.
  • Calcium Hydroxylapatite: This is heavier and denser than hyaluronic acid. This filler is injected deeper, underneath the skin, and does not usually cause immune or allergic responses because the material is usually found in bones.

Semi-Permanent Fillers

Longer-lasting dermal fillers typically contain thicker substances, such as the biodegradable synthetic filler known as poly-L-lactic acid. These types of soft tissue fillers are used to treat deep facial lines and they offer semi-permanent results.

Permanent Fillers

Permanent fillers are made of polymethylmethacrylate (PMMA), which are microspheres that are not absorbed by the body. The filler also contains collagen and is only recommended for thick-skin areas such as the nasolabial folds. 

The type of fillers that a person requires greatly depends on the analysis of their skin type, structure and issue and hand. This analysis is carried on during the consultation and hence Dr. Santosh Bhatia gives utmost importance to the same.

What Are

The Different Brand Names For Fillers?

There are a number of soft tissue filler brand names, but some of the most common are:

  • Hyaluronic Acid-Based Fillers: Restylane, Juvederm, Perlane, PREVELLE Silk, Hydrelle, Belotero
  • Collagen-Based Fillers: Cosmoplast, Cosmoderm, Evolence
  • Semi-Permanent Fillers: Sculptra, Radiesse
  • Permanent Fillers: ArteFill

What to

Expect Before The Procedure?

Dr Santosh Bhatia will need to know the entirety of the medical history in order to carry out the process smoothly and without any complications. Any impending allergies must also be informed before the procedure. As the procedure is quite simple, minimally invasive and does not require any specific tests before, it can be performed immediately after the consultation itself.

Also, the doctor will click a few pictures to analyze the difference in result after the process is complete.

How Are

Fillers Administered At Vanity Cosmetic Clinic?

  • Markings are first made wherever the fillers need to be injected.
  • The area to be treated is cleansed first. Anaesthesia is not required as it is a minimally invasive procedure.
  • However, some fillers contain a local anesthetic like lidocaine to enhance comfort during injection. Topical anesthetic may also be used in certain cases.
  • The needles used for injecting are thin and short, thus the pain is minimal.
  • Utmost care is taken to inject the filler properly so as to avoid any damage to underlying structure and to prevent any nerve damage.
  • The amount of the injections highly depends upon the facial structure and the amount of wrinkles that need to be treated. It can take anywhere from 15 to 45 minutes to complete the procedure.

What Is

The Recovery After Fillers Like?

Step 1

The results of your injections can be seen immediately following the procedure, though it’s not uncommon for patients to experience swelling or minimal bruising in the area of the injection site.

Step 2

The doctor may give you an ice pack or cold compress to help stem swelling.

Step 3

The period of swelling will depend largely on the type of soft tissue filler you received, though most swelling, bruising, and redness should dissipate within one week to ten days.

Step 4

One of the most enticing features of soft tissue fillers is their minimal recovery time.

Step 5

In the approximate week it takes for swelling and bruising to disappear, your doctor may advise you to avoid wearing hats or other headgear and only use small amounts of makeup.

Risks Associated With Fillers?

  • There is slight bruising and redness at the site that dissipates over the time.
  • Muscle sensation may change for sometime.
