What dermal fillers are used?

Dr. Fab can work with any dermal filler but chooses to use the Aliaxin and Ellanse range

The keys to success and safety with fillers is expert assessment of the face and knowing where to place them, as well as injector skill.

Aliaxin is an Italian range of fillers made from Hyaluronic Acid by IBSA, which is naturally occurring in skin, joint fluid and the eye. Aliaxin is extremely smooth and integrates very well in the facial tissues for a soft natural look and a very low complication rate. Unlike other fillers IBSA make their own hyaluronic acid, which is of sufficiently high quality to be used medically in joints and the eyes. In other words Aliaxin is one of the purest, highest quality fillers available.

Ellanse is an interesting product in that it has 1 - 4 year lasting variants and is a collagen stimulator. It is comprised of microspheres of polycaprolactone suspended in a carrier gel carboxymethylcellulose. Polycaprolactone has been around for many years in medicine as an absorbable suture material and polycapr lactose is generally regarded as safe by the FDA. Ella's is an excellent volume restorer and is broken down by the body into harmless carbon dioxide and water which are totally excreted.

What are the side effects and risks of dermal fillers?

In the hands of a properly trained and experienced practitioner dermal fillers are very safe. Common side effects are swelling and bruising lasting up to 2 weeks depending on the filler used and its application. Most bad press has been with the use of permanent fillers, which we do not use.

Less common problems are visible filler under skin, lumps and nodules, accidental injection into blood vessels or external compression of vessels and granuloma formation.

We minimize risks by using a blunt cannula to inject in areas of higher risk. Dr. Fab uses advanced injecting techniques to minimize risk and give the best results.

All filler work is checked up 2 weeks later and any adjustments made to compensate for initial swelling and to optimize results are included in the price.
