Dermal fillers are designed to ‘fill in’ and enhance static wrinkles, while also reducing the depth of facial folds that are present at rest. Dermal filler injections create a more refreshed and rejuvenated facial appearance that highlights your best features. Deeper injections are used to add volume to features such as the cheeks and lips.
Many of Ethique Plastic Surgery’s Sydney patients choose to combine dermal fillers with anti-wrinkle injections to reduce the appearance of lines that are caused by muscle activity and are present at rest. Anti-wrinkle injections and dermal fillers are often seen as the same thing but this is not the case. While dermal fillers work to add more volume to specific areas of the face, Anti-wrinkle injections help relax the muscles that are responsible for deep lines and wrinkles that are caused by continuous movement over a prolonged period of time – frown lines are a perfect example of the type of wrinkle you would treat with anti-wrinkle injections.
