As you age, your body produces less collagen. Collagen is a naturally occurring substance that acts as a framework for your skin. As a result, the skin gets thinner and begins to sag. Simultaneously, the face loses volume due to the decrease in facial fat and resorption of the underlying bone.
Dermal fillers are injectable anti-aging treatments that are used to treat fine lines, deep folds and volume loss in the face. The treatment helps to reshape the contours of the face, re-define features such as lips, rehydrate the skin and smooth out wrinkles.
Dermal fillers are made of a variety of substances, however the most popular and safest are made of hyaluronic acid. Hyaluronic acid (HA) is a naturally occurring substance found in our skin that is able to hold water and acts as a cushion-like sponge. This in turn hydrates the skin and acts like a lubricant to reduce damage to the skin, resulting in a youthful, supple and elastic appearance.
At Aesthetic Options, only the most trusted filler brands are used and the specific type is chosen according to the treatment indication by your attending doctor.
- Facial Augmentation: Cheeks, nose, lips, chin, and jawline.
- Facial Contouring: Temples, sagging lower lids, nasolabial folds, brow lifting.
- Fine Facial Lines: Crows feet and smokers lines

Our cosmetic specialist will assess your unique facial concerns and identify the appropriate treatment plan. Our aim is to create a natural, age-appropriate and refreshed look.
The procedure is done in the office and takes less than an hour including consultation. The filler is injected with a small needle or blunt cannula. This is not painful as it is premixed with local anaesthetic. The lip area is more sensitive and requires some topical anaesthetic applied prior to treatment to make it comfortable.
Dermal filler results are immediate but significant improvement may only be seen after 2 weeks. These results can last from 12 to 18 months depending on the dermal filler used.
Hyaluronic Acid (HA) is a sugar found in human tissues. Some of your body’s HA is used as a shock absorber and lubricant for your joints, however most of it is found in your skin, where it offers support to the connective tissues.
HA based dermal fillers are an injectable gel made of re-absorbable, synthetic, non-animal sourced cross-linked hyaluronic acid. An enzyme called hyaluronidase slowly degrades the hyaluronic acid and can be used therapeutically to dissolve unwanted filler.
Injected Hyaluronic Acid is therefore a natural substance found in the skin and is the filler of choice for many doctors worldwide since it is unlikely that anyone will have an allergic reaction; it is stable and injects smoothly.
