What is AestheFill?
AestheFill is a brand of dermal filler that is designed to restore volume and stimulate collagen production in the skin. Not only like traditional fillers that fill wrinkles and folds, AestheFill works over time to improve the skin’s texture and elasticity by promoting the body’s natural collagen synthesis.
How does AestheFill work?
AestheFill contains a biocompatible compound, poly-D, L-Lactic Acid (PDLLA), which when injected into the skin, acts as a bio-stimulator. This substance provides immediate volume and also stimulates the body’s natural collagen production over time. As the PDLLA microparticles are gradually absorbed, they leave behind newly formed collagen, which helps to maintain the volume and improve skin quality.
What is AestheFill best suited for?
AestheFill is best suited for individuals looking to reduce the appearance of wrinkles and folds, improve facial contours, and restore volume loss that often occurs with aging. It’s also used to enhance the natural features and improve the overall texture and elasticity of the skin.
What to expect during treatment?
When you receive a AestheFill treatment, expect the session to take about 30-45 minutes. The process involves using a fine needle to create a small opening over your skin, and the solution would be injected to the target area via a very thin cannula. While the treatments are not pain-free, the discomfort is often described as minimal and no anesthesia is required.
What are the treatment areas?
Common treatment areas for AestheFill include:
- Nasolabial folds
- Marrionette lines
- Chin, Jawline
Is the treatment painful?
Pain is subjective, but most patients report minimal discomfort only as lignocaine (a medication for numbing) is also mixed into the injecting solution. Some might experience a sensation of pressure or a slight pinch during the injections.
How many sessions are needed to see results?
The number of sessions required can vary depending on the individual’s goals and the treatment area’s volume loss. Typically, some results can be seen after just one session, and the treatment course usually consists of 3 sessions, with full collagen regeneration taking up to two months. Maintenance sessions may be needed every 1 to 2 years or as determined by the doctor.
How soon can I see results from?
Initial results can be seen almost immediately post-treatment due to the filler providing instant volume. More significant and long-lasting results will become apparent over the next 1 to 2 months as the body generates new collagen.
What to avoid after the treatment?
After the treatment, patients should avoid:
- Strenuous exercise for 24-48 hours
- Excessive sun and heat exposure
- Alcohol consumption for at least 24 hours
- Certain supplements and medications that can increase bruising and swelling
Are there any side effects?
The most common side effects are related to the injection itself, which includes redness, pain, itching, swelling, and bruising at the injection site. These are typically mild and resolve within a few days. Rare but more serious side effects can include allergic reactions, infection, or filler migration, and any adverse symptoms should be reported to the doctor immediately.
