In the generation of longevity, ageing gracefully has become both an attractive and practical choice for many. Today there are numerous treatments, which help to maintain, promote, and reverse the signs of aging. At Erase Aesthetic Services we provide a number of different varieties of Dermal Fillers and Anti-wrinkle injections all performed by our medical practitioners who have over 16 years experience.
The Dermal fillers used at Erase are primarily Hyaluronic Acid base, which is naturally found in our body. Hyaluronic Acid help to restore our skin to its former youthful appearance, as the material is injected into areas where it needs to be plumped up again and made to look firmer.
Dermal fillers come in different thicknesses to treat varying degrees of deficit or volume loss in the skin. Traditionally dermal fillers were used to plump out fine to deep lines and wrinkles, such as nasolabial folds (smile line), fill pitted scars or to give plumpness to cheeks, refine the nose bridge, increase hydration under the eyes, cleavage lines and hands, and even reduce the sunken look under the eyes.
With newer more refined techniques, our cosmetic physicians uses a mixture of dermal fillers and muscle relaxing injection for face sculpting, which will soften your features, restoring missing volume, and highlight areas of beauty. Subtle changes occur when dermal fillers are put in the right location, which enables light reflection to enhance beautiful parts of the face.
The other methods to help reduce wrinkles are muscle relaxing injections these are best used in the treatment of dynamic muscles and areas such as frown lines. Erase also provide medical use of muscle relaxing injections for the treatment of Hyperhydrosis, reducing teeth grinding, and have proven to reduce tension headaches in sufferers.
Treatment At Erase
The Dermal fillers used at Erase are primarily Hyaluronic Acid base, which means that it is naturally digested by the body. They help to restore our skin to its former youthful appearance, as the material is injected into areas where it needs to be plumped up again and made to look firmer. Dermal fillers come in different thicknesses, and in general, the thicker the product, the deeper it is injected into the dermal layer of the skin to help plump out fine to deep lines and wrinkles, such as nasolabial folds (smile line), fill pitted scars or to give plumpness to cheeks, build a nose bridge, reduce neck and cleavage lines, and help the sunken look under the eyes.
Hyaluronic acid dermal filler is a naturally occurring substance found in the spaces between the cells of body tissues in all animals. It has already been used widely in general medicine to help eye surgeons perform cataract operations, and for injection into arthritic joints to aid movement. It is estimated that 30 million patients around the world have been treated with some form of hyaluronic acid.
The other methods to help reduce wrinkles formed by the use of dynamic muscles such as a frown line, is to use of muscle relaxing injection. It is indicated as a treatment of wrinkles that is caused by muscles contraction, and not a gravitational wrinkling or sagging of the skin, which can be treated with Dermal fillers, Radio frequency skin tightening or Laser resurfacing (Fraxel Laser).
Once injected into the target muscle, it begins to show effect in 3-7 days, and subsequently effectiveness lasts for the next 3-6 months. Thereafter the muscle should return to its normal function.

Dermal Filler Post-treatment advice:
- Ice packs post treatment can help to reduce temporary swelling
- We offer arnica (a homeopathic remedy) cream or tablets. We recommended a few days before and a few days after treatment as there is some evidence that this can reduce bruising.
- If you experience any bruising or swelling after a dermal filler treatment, we provide a flawless camouflauge makeup which is lightweight and waterproof.

I suffer from lipstick bleeds. Can I have Dermal Filler just for filling those lines and not increase lip size?
Yes, dermal fillers will be best suited to help plump out lines that causes lipstick bleeds. It can be used to help with these vertical lines without making any changes to your lip shape or volume.
I heard Dermal Fillers could be used with Anti-wrinkle injections. Is that safe?
Sometimes Dermal fillers and Anti-wrinkle injection or muscle relaxing injection are used together if the degree of volume loss is partly caused by dynamic muscle contraction. Generally, the practitioners at Erase will relax the muscle with an Anti-wrinkle injection before the dermal filler is injected on a separate visit. By separating the treatment, it can also give the person a gradual and subtle change.
