A natural consequence of ageing is the fact that our facial skin loses its elasticity, thickness, hydration, and volume, all of which we need to maintain a youthful and healthy appearance.

At AK Care, Dr Amir Khakshaee uses dermal fillers consisting of HLA (Hyaluronic Acid) to add volume and restore facial contours where the fat volume and skin elasticity has diminished during the aging process.

Dermal fillers are non-surgical and temporary injectables which can deliver a revitalized, refreshed, and younger facial presence. They may also enhance the contour of the lips, offering the much wanted after sensual plump appearance of the lips. They may be injected anywhere on the face. The effect of the filler varies from 6-12 months and in some cases longer depending on treated area, type of filler used and personal variations.

Before embarking on any treatments, AK Care recommends to have a one to one consult with Dr. AK or our aesthetician. During this session skin and facial assessment will be done. Mutual decision is made as to what treatments can be done. As you all may know, medical and cosmetic skin care is overlooked in lots of people.

Home regimen remedies and professional treatments are routinely needed based on your skin type, colour, ageing and expectation. We ensure that all our patient stay happy and satisfied in their skin.

  • If possible, come to your appointment with a cleanly washed face without make-up.

Post-Procedure Care

  • Do not forcefully massage the treated areas, but gentle massaging the firm areas containing more filler is advised.
  • Avoid applying heat to the treated area until any swelling or bruising have resolved.
  • Routine make up, washing and showering is fine.
  • Avoid activities that cause facial flushing on the day of treatment including: consuming alcohol, exercising, and tanning.
  • Gently apply a cool compress or wrapped ice pack to the treated areas for 15 minutes every few hours as needed to reduce discomfort, swelling, or bruising up to a few days after treatment.

What is a filler?

Filler is largely hyaluronic acid gel. Hyaluronic acid is a complex sugar normally found in the skin, muscles, and tendons. There are other types of fillers.

How is it used?

It is injected using a needle a blunt cannula.

How does it work?

Hyaluronic acid can absorb up to 1,000 times its own weight in water, thereby adding new volume under the surface of sagging skin.

How painful is it?

Fillers come with numbing medicines inside them. Most people tolerate it, but for some people and some areas, extra freezing with numbing creams may be needed. Occasionally, a numbing injection gives more comfort.

What is it used for?

It is used by cosmetic physicians to soften deep folds and reduce wrinkles in the face, for example, smile lines. It is also used for lip augmentation. Another important use of it is for cheek and chin augmentation.

It gives volume and hydration to an ageing face and rejuvenates it.

What happens to the filler after injection?

All hyaluronic acid facial filler products are eventually absorbed by the body, usually within six to twelve months, requiring the patient to undergo repeat injections to maintain the younger look.

What are the side effects?

Expected side effects include: temporary redness, pain, tenderness during injection(s), swelling and/or bruising at the injection site. The more serious side effects include: infection, bumps and granulomas which are caused by a delayed immune reaction of the body to the fillers which is rare and can be bothersome to treat. Rare but the most important complication of filler injections is arterial/venous occlusion, which leads to ischemia, with subsequent necrosis of the skin and/or vision loss. It can be considered a dermatologic emergency and must be dealt with immediately.
