Nurse Camille: How Filler Works As A Foundation

Thanks to the lockdowns of the past two years, our talented Cosmedicine Nurse Camille has had some stops and starts in her training and skill-building. The great news is that now, through time and dedication, she can finally offer a more extensive, advanced range of dermal filler treatments.  We asked her to share one of her latest case results and explain how skilful injecting techniques can work to give all-over ‘lift’.

We place quite an emphasis on education here at TFP, so I thought I’d share some not-so-common knowledge around the process of dermal filler and help break down some of the misconceptions around this popular treatment. 

Unfortunately, there is a stigma around filler due to it being misused and people being over-treated. Most people have seen the overdone balloon lips or chipmunk cheeks in the media or on people they know and may think that is what filler is all about. Here at The Face Place, we work to break down that stigma and educate people on what filler can really do. We aim to enhance an individual’s natural beauty and address some of the negative signs of ageing and gravity. When filler is done correctly, it should give harmony and balance to the face and shouldn’t be obvious to the naked eye.  

It is a common misconception to think that dermal filler is just for ‘filling’ – there is quite a lot more to it. We use the analogy of building a house when explaining how filler works. As we age, bone (or the foundation) of the house depletes and fat pads that provide our youthful cushioning descend. This is the cause of symptoms such as sagging of the jowls (the most common problem), under-eye bags, nasolabial folds, and lines around the mouth/chin. This analogy helps to understand the process of treatment, as we often need to address the cause (foundation) to treat the symptom (jowls, for example).

Camille has used dermal filler here to define and sculpt the jawline.

A good example of this is treating cheeks with dermal filler. Treating the cheeks addresses the foundation, we can replace the depleting bone and create lift. In treating this one area we can also improve the under-eye bags, jowls and nasolabial folds. The photos below are a great example of this as I did not treat the under-eye bags or jowls directly, but they have improved significantly by treating the foundation (cheeks, jawline, chin). Keep an eye out on our Instagram for many more beautiful results from our artist injectors!

You can see that returning volume to the cheeks has created lift and definition.

If you have been thinking of filler for a while or the results have piqued your interest, book in for a chat with me. However, you will need to get in quick! My injecting skills are not all that has been growing in lockdown 😉 as I am also expecting our first baby boy and will be going on maternity leave end of April.
