Dermal fillers (also called soft-tissue fillers) are a non-surgical injectable treatment used to restore facial volume, create youthful facial contours, add volume to lips, and smooth out and reduce the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, and folds.
Goodbye Lines and Wrinkles
With advancing age, your skin undergoes a number of typical changes affecting its texture, volume and appearance. Static lines become visible when your face is relaxed; they form as part of the natural aging process. The quality of your skin degenerates as a result of exposure to the sun and various lifestyle factors, such as smoking, poor nutritional habits and overuse of alcohol. The skin structure weakens and lines form.
Hyaluronic Acid fillers are used to lift and smooth out lines, wrinkles and folds such as nasolabial folds or lines on the forehead or around the mouth. They can also be a great option to enhance the natural shape and contours of your lips. The BELOTERO family of dermal fillers contain Hyaluronic Acid and offer various treatment options for every kind of wrinkle.
BELOTERO SOFT, BALANCE, and INTENSE integrate seamlessly into the skin allowing for immediate and smooth correction of very fine to deep lines and wrinkles.
The vertical lines above and below your lips can be difficult to hide with makeup and are often highlighted when a bold shade of lipstick seeps into them. Hyaluronic Acid (HA) dermal fillers are ideal to add soft shape to thin lips or to sculpt lip contours. The BELOTERO range of products integrate so smoothly into your tissue that they feel completely natural, just like your own tissue.
The characteristics of BELOTERO LIPS Shape and Contour make them the ideal fillers for lip injections. They can improve the appearance of your lips by adding shape, structure and volume. Lip enhancement often requires a less-is-more approach for natural-looking treatment results. Your Aesthetic Healthcare Professional will discuss your individual treatment goals with you and can adjust the effect according to your personal idea of a perfect lip.
Dermal Fillers FAQ
What kind of improvements can be made with dermal fillers?
Dermal fillers are used in the following ways to treat a variety of issues:
To Reverse the Effects of Aging
Loss Of Facial Volume: As we age, the fullness of youth is lost, which is most evident in areas such as the lips, cheeks, and eyelids. By restoring volume, fillers are able to directly improve a gaunt appearance by filling in hollowed or sunken areas.
Deepening Of Facial Folds And Wrinkles: With age, wrinkles and facial folds become more pronounced. Fillers are able to erase moderate to severe wrinkles, and folds such as:
Nasolabial Folds (Laugh Lines): Lines from the nose to the corners of the mouth.
Marionette Lines: Lines from the lips down to the sides of the chin.
Lipstick Lines: Lines on the upper lip created when the lip is pouting, such as during lipstick application, cigarette smoking, etc.
Corners Of the Mouth: Downward pointing lines emanating from the corners of the lips, which give the appearance of a grimace.
Tissue Sagging: As skin ages, it atrophies, which affects the appearance of skin under the eyes, around the lips, the chin, jowls, and the area between the nose and the mouth.
Fine Lines: Fine facial lines become more problematic with the passage of time – in particular, tiny lines below the eyes, and around the lips.
Hand Rejuvenation: Even if you are able to maintain a youthful look, withered hands are often a telltale sign of age. Dermal fillers are not just for the face and are very effective at rejuvenating the appearance of hands, by making them appear smoother and suppler while minimizing wrinkles and hiding prominent bones and veins.
To Improve Your Appearance
Dermal fillers can also be used to address a host of issues unrelated to aging. The following improvements can be made to your appearance using dermal fillers:
Lip Augmentation: Fillers can be used to plump up thin lips, rendering them more voluminous and attractive.
Augmenting The Cheeks: A gaunt, sunken in look can be improved by the administration of fillers.
Improving The Shape Of The Nose: By strategically injecting dermal fillers in the right location, a crooked or disproportionate nose can be drastically improved without surgery.
Narrowing The Appearance Of The Jaw Line: A wide jaw line is not considered to be feminine. Strategic injection of dermal fillers to the Masseter muscle can make the face appear narrower and more attractive.

How long will it take me to see results after dermal filler injections?
After getting dermal filler injections, you will be able to immediately see some results, however, it will take about 48 hours to see the full effect. The results will typically last up to six months. After this period of time, you will need to receive fillers again to maintain your rejuvenated appearance. If you opt to stop getting injections at any time, your appearance will just revert to its original state.
How long will the results from dermal fillers last?
Dermal fillers fade very slowly and gradually, so for the vast majority of patients, results should last between 6 and 18 months. After approximately 9 to 12 months, the effects of the dermal filler gradually weaken, until your skin returns to its natural state. The specific amount of time dermal fillers last varies depending on the patient’s skin, the treatment area, and the type of product used.
As treatment with dermal fillers is temporary, they require touch-up injections for maintenance and eventually repeat injections. At Avora Skin Spa Cosmetic Clinic, our experienced health care practitioners will determine the ideal time interval for your follow-up treatments, and develop the optimal injectable regimen to suit your needs. Alternatively, if you decide not to maintain your new appearance, the results will gradually disappear over time.
