Fillers and Chemical Peels

FILLERS

Facial fillers is done for reconstructive or cosmetic purposes. It has become increasingly popular for the ‘normal’ everyday person to seek facial augmentation to remove or improve existing acne scars and
facial lines or to enhance a specific facial area.


What are facial fillers used for?


Injectable fillers may be used to improve the appearance of the skin contours. They can help fill out deep
facial wrinkles, sunken cheeks, skin depressions and some types of scars enhancement. They can also
be used for filling-in of certain specific facial features such as the lips or chin.

Facial lines and features that can be corrected using implants
Frown lines (glabellar lines)
Smoker's lines (perioral lines)
Marionette lines (oral commissures)
Worry lines (forehead lines)
Crow's feet (periorbital lines)
Deep smile lines (nasolabial furrows)
Smile lines (nasolabial lines)
Cheek depressions
Lip enhancement
Witch's chin (chin augmentation)
Acne scars
Facial scars


What can I expect from filler injections?


It is important to know that fillers stay in the skin temporarily (usually between 9-12 months) and are
not permanent. The injected substance is broken down by the body over weeks to months depending
on the material used. As a result, a “top-up” procedure may be required to restore the facial contours
after some time.


CHEMICAL PEELS

A facial peel refers to the application of one or more chemicals to the face which 'burn' off damaged cells.
They may be used to treat damage caused by exposure to the sun, to remove pigmentation such and
fine lines and wrinkles.

A peel removes several layers of sun damaged skin cells, leaving fresh skin which has a more even
surface and colour. It may stimulate new collagen to be formed improving skin texture. Peels may result
in superficial, moderate depth or deep skin injury.

Uses of chemical peels:

Acne like blackheads and whiteheads and the mild superficial acne scars.
Pigmentation of the skin like sun spots, age spots, freckles and melasma.
Minimise fine wrinkles especially around the eyes. It does not treat severe wrinkles.


There are 3 main types of chemical peels including Glycolic acid (alpha hydroxyacids), Trichloracetic
acid (TCA) and Jessner peels (containing salicylic acid and lactic acid).


Before the peel


Pre-treatment creams are applied to the face at night for several weeks prior to the peel. By exfoliating
the skin and reducing pigmentation themselves, they improve the results seen from chemical peeling.


The peel


Superficial chemical peels are a minor procedure and no special arrangements are needed. First the
face is thoroughly washed to remove surface oil. The peeling agent is then applied for several minutes.
It stings - how badly and for how long depends on the chemical, its concentration, whether you've had
pre-treatment with aspirin, and individual factors. A fan can help. The peel is then neutralised, and the
burning sensation lessens. Antibiotics and painkillers may be required after deeper peels.


Afterwards


Superficial peels result in mild facial redness and occasional swelling which usually resolve within
48 hours. The peeling is similar to sunburn. Most people can continue their normal activities. Make-up
can be applied a few hours after the procedure.

Looking after the skin after the peel

Keep treated areas cool (use a water spray).
Do not pick! Picking delays healing and causes scarring
Moisturise - use light preparations after a superficial peel, thicker moisturisers after a
deeper peel
Protect from the sun - especially for the first 6 months
