DRX-Minor Cosmetic Procedures



Dermal fillers are gel-like substances that are injected beneath the skin to restore lost volume, smooth lines and soften creases, or enhance facial contours. There has been a strong and sustained increase in demand for dermal fillers. It has become a popular choice for those who want to improve their appearance without the risks and downtime associated with surgery.
DRX-Minor Cosmetic Procedures
⮚Dermal fillers can be used to treat many areas of the face and address the following concerns:

1)Tear trough:

Tear troughs often cast a shadow below your eyes, resulting in a tired appearance. Some people also feel that their tear troughs make them look older. Tear trough filler is a hyaluronic acid gel that's injected under the eyes to improve the appearance of tired eyes. The hyaluronic acid plumps up, firms, and fills the hollows under your eyes to give you a fresher, brighter appearance.

2)Hollow cheeks:

Hollow cheeks, also referred to as sunken cheeks, are characterized by a noticeable indentation between your cheekbones and jawbone. Sunken cheeks can contribute to an older-looking facial appearance, and they can be brought about naturally by factors like ageing, genetic predispositions, loss of facial fat, or certain medical conditions. Dermal fillers, designed to restore volume, are injected into the hollowed areas of your cheekbones, lifting them and returning a more youthful plumpness to your face.


Lip augmentation is one of the most popular cosmetic procedures done because full lips are considered youthful and voluptuous.

4)Minimizing Pores:

Hyaluronic acid is injected just below the surface of the skin where it rapidly disperses and reacts with the tissue to instantly increase hydration. Immediately after treatment there is noticeable improvement in skin tone as well as firmness, and fine lines/pores are minimized.

5)Enhancing facial harmony:

When facial features are disproportionate or misaligned, they can detract from one another and make the face appear less attractive. In order to achieve facial balance, facial aesthetic procedures, such as rhinoplasty and jawline contouring, can be considered.

6)Chin Augmentation:

A chin augmentation can add strength and definition to the jawline, granting one a proportioned appearance. One of the great benefits of having a chin augmentation is that you will see the results from your chin augmentation immediately.

⮚What types of dermal fillers are available?

1)Hyaluronic Acid:

Hyaluronic acid is a natural substance found in your body. High concentrations are found in soft connective tissues and in the fluid surrounding your eyes. It's also in some cartilage and joint fluids, as well as skin tissue. It is extracted and reformulated and now has become one of the most popular kinds of injectable fillers.

Some of the TFDA-approved hyaluronic acid products we use are Restylane Skinboosters Vital Lidocaine, Restylane Volyme, Restylane Lyft Lidocaine, Croma Princess Filler Lindocaine and Croma Princess Rich.

2)Calcium Hydroxylapatite (CaHA):

Injectable calcium hydroxylapatite, a mineral with the same chemical composition as the material found in bones and teeth, is a unique filler product because it does two things. First, it replaces volume loss which is useful for things like correction of nasolabial folds. Second, it stimulates collagen production to correct moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds and marionette lines. But the substance is too thick we can’t be sure if it’s injected into the vein, therefore, for safety concern, DRX Dermatology Clinic does not offer this treatment.

3)Poly-L-lactic Acid (PLLA):

Injectable poly-l-lactic acid (PLLA) is known commercially as Sculptra and Sculptra Aesthetic. As we age, the fat, muscles, bone, and skin in our face begins to thin. This loss of volume leads to either a sunken or sagging appearance of the face. Injectable poly-l-lactic acid is used to create structure, framework, and volume to the face. PLLA is known as a bio-stimulatory dermal filler, this means it stimulates your own skin to produce new collagen. Over time your skin breaks down PLLA into water and carbon dioxide. The effects of PLLA appear gradually over a few months, producing natural results.

4)Polymethyl Methacrylate (PMMA):

Polymethyl Methacrylate (PMMA) contains collagen, which provides further structure and firmness to the skin. However, PMMA is not TFDA-approved, and therefore, our clinic does not offer this treatment.

5)Polycaprolactone (PCL):

Polycaprolactone microspheres, an innovative polymer that has the unique ability to stimulate collagen growth, is contained within Ellanse filler. PCL has been effectively used in the biomedical field for over 70 years, with incredible advancements made with its application. However, it’s only been since 2010 that PCL has been used in aesthetic medicine.

When used as a cosmetic treatment, the PCL in Ellanse filler gives you skin a much longer-lasting, natural lift compared with other dermal fillers, since it helps to replenish your body’s lost collagen.

6)Autologous Fat Grafting:

Autologous Fat Grafting is a surgery where fat deposits are removed from an area of the body using liposuction. These fat deposits are then transferred to correct a defect. Our clinic does not offer this treatment.

With so many brands and types of dermal fillers on the market, it can be difficult to distinguish the difference between them. At DRX Dermatology clinic, we explain thoroughly the pros and cons of different dermal fillers to patients, allowing patients to make informed decisions.

Not only do dermal fillers vary in the results they can achieve, but also in their composition, longevity, and suitability to various treatment areas. Thus, this decision-making process requires the expertise of a highly skilled physician, like ours.

Our physicians have years of experiences, intimate knowledge of anatomy, product characteristics, and appropriate injection techniques to ensure that patient achieve optimal results while maintaining patient safety.

⮚What to expect during treatment:

A topical anaesthetic cream may be applied first to minimize the discomfort during the procedure. Multiple injections are usually required, but these are generally well-tolerated. If the procedure goes smoothly, you will be able to go home soon afterwards. There is minimal downtime, and you can usually resume your normal activities within the next couple of days.

⮚Consultation before treatment:

Tell your physician about any illness or infection you have had in the past, such as diabetes or epilepsy. It’s also crucial to inform your physician if you are allergic to any medicines.
