A filler is a gel-based on hyaluronic acid, a substance we naturally have in our skin and joints. This substance improves the hydration and quality of the skin. When your skin is well hydrated, it looks smooth and firm.
As we get older, the amount of hyaluronic acid produced by our body, reduces. Therefor our skin becomes more dry. As a result, wrinkles and folds appear.
The name “fillers” actually says it all; a filler temporarily fills (lost) volume. Fillers can smooth the skin, contour the face and make the lips more voluminous. It hydrates and improves our skin quality, helping you slow down the aging process.
Nowadays, the quality of the fillers is improved and the new VYCROSS technology results in a natural appearance. The new filler integrates with your own tissue, making the filler dynamic even when you smile, talk or frown.
Essential Aesthetics works with the following high-quality brands:
If you want more volume without the use of filler, you can opt for options like Fat Grafting. Request a no-obligation consultation with our specialists now.
Over the course of life, the skin on the face becomes thinner and looser. As you age, the amount of hyaluronic acid in your skin also decreases. This is a substance that occurs naturally in your skin and is very important in maintaining moisture levels. Your body produces hyaluronic acid itself, but it also breaks it down.
As a result, the skin becomes more dehydrated. Wrinkles and lines are formed more quickly. Those lines are also called expression lines. These get deeper with age and can give an angry/fatigued facial expression.
Our injectables team can help with this by creating a personalized treatment plan. In some cases, more than 1ml is advised to achieve the desired result. Therefore, sometimes multiple treatments are needed to build up and achieve a good result.
The doctor carefully injects the filler, creating more volume under the skin. A filler treatment can help with wrinkles, as well as re-lift the skin. The treated area will feel more hydrated after the treatment. It has an effect for about 6 to 12 months. Please note that filler treatment is not performed during pregnancy or breastfeeding.
Good to know: The way of life also affects the condition of the skin. Sun worshippers and smokers have sagging wrinkled skin at a relatively young age due to damage caused from the outside. In addition to a filler treatment, it is also recommended to treat the skin. Our skin therapist works with the doctor to create a complete step-by-step plan. By taking care of multiple layers of the skin, the effect of the filler will remain visible longer.
Due to our modern, busy way of life with high-stress levels, we increasingly suffer from unhealthy skin. Also, as we age, the bones slightly shrink, and we lose volume. This can change the structure of the face. This can cause the skin to sag and ‘hang’. With volume restoration, it is possible to slow down and remedy the effects our lives and time has on our skin.
Fillers help restore volume in specific areas of the face. Your skin is the most important foundation for your beauty because its condition tells a lot about your health.
Depending on the product chosen, the filler is injected into the skin or just below the skin through several punctures with a fine needle. Some areas of the face are more sensitive than others.
Not happy with your lips, nose or facial contours? A filler treatment at Essential Aesthetics can solve this.
Contouring the face with fillers has become increasingly popular in recent years. Fillers can enhance the curves and shapes of your face by accentuating certain facial features. Natural-looking highlights and shadows are created on the face. This can make you look slimmer and younger. This can be seen as a “liquid” correction.
The result can last up to 6 months and even 2 years. This varies by region and filler.
Essential Aesthetics has partnered with Teosyal’s anti-ageing award winner, the Redensity II filler, the only filler in the world specifically indicated for filling the tear troughs to reduce puffiness and dark circles.
Teosyal Redensity II gives the tear trough under the eyes a little bit more volume, creating a fresh and energetic look again. It gives a perfect volume result and works in detail. The derma complex, consisting of antioxidants, vitamins, minerals and amino acids, improves the skin condition and reduces dark circles under the eyes.
Teosyal Redensity II is a biodegradable, non-permanent filler based on naturally crosslinked and non-crosslinked hyaluronic acid combined with a firm derma complex. It is the ideal injectable for treatment under the eyes. This area is very delicate and has difficult anatomy for an injectable. A filler with specific properties is what is needed to achieve the best results safely, without complications.
An accurate instrument for beauty With a conventional syringe, the specialist needs to apply a certain degree of force to inject the gel. The pressure applied is not constant and is therefore perceived as painful.
Enables the doctor to work with increased precision The specialist can set the injection quantity and injection rate, according to the type of treatment and the treatment area. The gel is injected slowly, perfectly dosed and controlled thanks to the motorized system.
As the injection is electronically controlled, the specialist is able to focus entirely on the placement of the gel, instead of on applying pressure as required with conventional manual syringes.
What are the advantages? The easy operationality of the Teosyal Pen brings a number of advantages:
Less pain, less swelling
More natural results
Better cosmetic results
More comfortable treatment
Less pain The Teosyal Pen is designed to give constant and elegant injections that are virtually painless. In addition, there is less swelling after the treatment. “50% less pain intensity when compared with manual injections”
Faster recovery You can immediately resume your daily activities after the treatment, and go back to work the same day. When patients were asked why they would recommend a treatment with the Teosyal Pen to their friends, they answered:
Great results, less redness
Natural results and no pain
You can go straight back to your usual occupations
Natural results Even areas that used to be too delicate to be treated, can now be thanks to the Teosyal Pen. More than 90% of patients prefer treatment with the Teosyal Pen over conventional manual injections and recommend it to their friends.
Indications The Teosyal Pen can be used for all indications that would normally be treated with injectables.
Fine lines (beginning of wrinkles)
Moderate wrinkles (modal wrinkles, deep frown lines and/or wrinkles on the upper lip)
Deeper wrinkles (nose-lip fold and /or marionette lines)
Hyaluronic acid is a natural product that also occurs in normal skin and it is completely biodegradable. The risk of allergic reactions to hyaluronic acid is very small because it does not contain animal proteins. There is always a small risk of more than average swelling and bruising, but these often disappear within one to two weeks.
Usually, the treated skin is slightly swollen and red for a few hours after the treatment. These reactions are always mild and disappear spontaneously. To keep swelling to a minimum, the treated area can be cooled with cold compresses. To further reduce swelling, we recommend that you do not bend over too much during the first 2 days after the injections and keep your head upright as much as possible. During the night, you may simply rest your head on a pillow.
A bruise (bruising) can sometimes appear in thin skin for a few days, which you can camouflage with make-up.
If this does not help enough or if the pain increases, it is best to contact the clinic.
Please note that filler treatments are not performed on pregnant or breastfeeding women.
There is always a risk of you not liking the results. Perhaps you feel like a filler treatment might have been unsuitable for your face. In this case, the filler can be dissolved by using Hyalase®.
Hyalase® is a filler that contains hyaluronidase, which is a solution that is used to break down the hyaluronic acid in the filler substance. It starts to work immediately after being injected in the desired area. The end result may take up to two weeks.
Depending on the treated area, several Hyalase® treatments might be needed, as in some cases the Hyalase® cannot dissolve the entire filler in the area at once.
After the injection, the filling effect is immediate. Sometimes a second treatment must take place after 4 – 6 weeks to achieve a better result which then lasts 12 – 24 months. Most people are satisfied with the result of the first treatment. To maintain a long-lasting effect, the plastic surgeon/cosmetic surgeon can repeat the treatment as soon as the effect begins to diminish or has disappeared.
It is wise not to exert yourself physically for the first 24 hours after the treatment. You should also avoid strong muscle movements of the face as much as possible.
Do not use make-up for the first few hours after treatment.
Avoid overexposure to the sun for about 1 week, use the sauna and sunbed until the swelling and redness of the treated area have disappeared.
Do not undergo any treatment by a beautician in the treated area for the first 2 weeks, such as peelings, connective tissue massages, facial scrubs, microdermabrasion, laser or other facial treatments.
You may wash your face gently. Massage of the treated area is not recommended, but you can immediately use your own daily skincare products and make-up.
If you feel a thickening at the injection site in the days after treatment, you can massage it for a few days, a few times a day for a few minutes according to your doctor’s instructions, especially do not do this any longer as there is a chance that swelling and redness will occur!
If you have had your lips treated, do not kiss or drink hot or cold beverages for the first 24 hours after the treatment.
In addition to your injectable treatment, it is also recommended to treat the other multidimensional layers of the skin. Our skin therapist works with the doctor to create a complete step-by-step plan. This ensures a long-lasting effect of the injectable.
There are different types of treatments available at Essential Aesthetics that each cover a different dimension of the skin. A skin care plan can be seen as a pyramid, as in which the foundation sets the base, and the layers above it are there to improve and compliment the complete picture.
The first step is improving your lifestyle. Our team will guide you with supplements, green detox juices and vitamin infusions to regenerate and boost your immune system. What is happening on the inside, is showing on the outside regardless of your effort to cover it. That is why body health is the first step in creating a healthier and improved look.
The second layer of the pyramid stands for non-invasive beauty treatments. These are more traditional hands-on facials with the best selection of products for both professional and home use. We tailor each treatment on the client’s personal journey, which is an ongoing transformation. Lifestyle, sudden hormonal changes, health condition and stress levels can differ during each visit. We will adjust accordingly and customize the treatments and products, opting to be a personal trainer for your skin.
Minimal invasive treatments
The third layer consists out of minimal invasive beauty treatments, helping the deeper layer of your skin to regenerate and most importantly: restore. When you find the products you are using at home useless, even the most expensive ones, this is the right moment to step into minimal invasive beauty treatments. These treatments create little wounds that the human eye cannot see, which forces the skin to produce new cells, stimulate the production of collagen and improve elastin in an efficient way. In addition, the best ampule cocktails designed and produced by the most experienced European laboratory, are used during these treatments. Skin problems like opening pores, dehydration, wrinkles, pigmentation, rosacea etc. can be largely improved by a series of consistent treatments.
The fourth layer stands for the invasive treatments: injectables. As time passes by, our bones are degrading and the fat pads in our face disappear. As a result, you are witnessing sagging skin. Injectables can restore the volume according to your bone structure and also stimulate your collagen production. So you are benefitting skin improvement and a fresh look for the long term. When you are investing in injectables, we recommend you consider maintaining the results every four weeks with the beauty treatments to treat the remaining layers of your skin.
The fifth and final layer stands for face surgery. If you do not look on the outside the way you feel on the inside, you can opt for alternatives like surgery which deliver immediate and long-lasting results. Our plastic surgery department is committed to supporting your journey in realizing your transformation. However, even after surgery, your skin structure stays the same. To maintain good skin elasticity and good skin quality, we advise you to use the right products at home and take care of your skin with the right beauty treatments. You can start treating the skin 6 months post-up surgery.
