As we age, the natural collagen and elastin in the skin lessens, as cells lose their ability to produce more of their youthful component. The skin becomes dryer, thinner and less able to fix itself. When we are born, we have plentiful amounts of Hyaluronic Acid (HA) in our body, but as we get older this store of HA diminishes, leaving the skin less well supported, and so lines and wrinkles develop. By lifting and smoothing targeted folds and wrinkles by adding subtle volume, dermal fillers can make a difference to a person’s appearance, giving them a fresher look.

Dermal Fillers treatment involves injecting a medically developed solution under the skin with a fine needle or cannula to enhance facial features and plump and fill lines, grooves or sunken areas.
Dermal Fillers are made from hyaluronic acid, a type of sugar that naturally occurs in our skin to help repair damaged tissue. Its normal liquid state is transformed into a gel injection to help plump out troublesome lines and bind with collagen, allowing nutrients to flow easily to the skin.
Dermal Fillers are used to treat a range of skin concerns, including lack of volume and shallow to deep wrinkles and folds, such as smile, marionette and lipstick lines and those on the corners of the mouth, chin, neck, décolletage and hands.
Administered correctly by Dr Rosh, they can subtly smooth, soften, contour and tone the skin; restore youthful plumpness, enhance and define your features. Depending on the area being treated we may use a needle or a cannula to place the product under the skin. Injection sites will be gently massaged to promote even integration of the product into the tissue, with treatments usually taking around 30 minutes to complete.
Facial fillers can be used on a wide range of patients, and are primarily used for skin rejuvenation and the reduction of lines and wrinkles. Other suitable candidates are those seeking to add structure and volume to the face. At KLNIK we see a variety of patients who have lost volume in their face due to living a very active, high impact lifestyle. Fillers help to restore the volume loss that naturally begins to occur when we reach our late thirties, and in turn gives a fresher, brighter appearance.
The results should be subtle, leaving your friends and family believing that we are simply looking our best and great for our years. Treatment lasts between 6-12 months but, naturally, towards the end of this period the effects begin to gradually soften, so there is no dramatic change. When the effects begin to soften, we aim to ‘top up’ the treatment.
The potential side effects of fillers are far greater than those from anti-wrinkle injections so it is very important to know not only which product you are having, but also who is injecting it. Many patients arriving for a consultation will visit KLNIK and point to a specific line that they don’t like. Our full consultation with Dr Rosh will not just look at treating this specific line, but will look beyond it to how the face looks as a whole, since treating an individual line could make the patient look unnatural. Sometimes patients will say that people tell them they look sad, tired or grumpy when this isn’t really the case. In these instances, it’s usually not a single line that is causing this impression but multiple factors and Dr Rosh will discuss treatment options with you. It is really key that you feel safe and reassured, your consultation with Dr Rosh will form a partnership, where you can speak freely about what concerns you, as this will allow for a full understanding of your hopes and desired outcomes. The new revolutionary ‘tear trough treatment’ can completely transform the face of a patient from tired and sunken to looking bright, refreshed and awake.
The treatment works on the depressions that run from the nose and around the under-eye area which becomes more noticeable as the skin sags and becomes thinner with age. As we age, fat can accumulate under the eyes which then creates what is commonly known as “eye bags”. While the surgical removal of eye bags gets rid of the fatty tissue, it doesn’t conceal the dark circles. The tear trough dermal filler treatment will not only improve the depression, it will also help to thicken the skin resulting in the reduction of the visible dark blood vessel colour. The treatment therefore benefits in the correction of the dark circles or panda eyes as well as the depression (tear trough) and eye bags. Dr Rosh will perform the treatment with his signature technique, achieving incredible results.
