Profile Balancing Filler
Profile Balancing Filler
Profile balancing is a procedure that uses dermal fillers to enhance and balance the 3 facial features – nose, chin, and lips. In some cases, structures of the face can lack volume lost over time or be out of proportion. This treatment gets all 3 in a straight line. This gives a more balanced profile when viewed from the side. At Dr.Derme, our expert doctors use leading techniques to deliver only the most natural results for you.

Profile balancing filler involves using dermal filler injections to add volume and contour to the face. The amount of dermal filler used for each area will vary depending on individual requirements. This requires careful planning and precision during the injection of dermal fillers. Our doctors will assess your individual facial structure to advise you on the best treatment plan. Creating harmony between these facial features gives you an enhanced profile when viewed from the side on.
How long does profile balancing last?
The results can typically last up to a year. How much was injected and how quickly your body breaks down dermal fillers will affect how long the results last. Some people may need touch-ups sooner than others due to their habits. Sunbathing or smoking cigarettes can reduce how long your fillers last. With good skincare and routine, you can enjoy long-lasting results from frown filler injections. It’s important to note that fillers aren’t permanent; if you don’t like the results of your treatment you can simply wait for it to wear off and try something else.

Frequently asked questions
What are dermal fillers?
Dermal fillers are injectable treatments used to add volume to the lips. The most common type of filler is made from hyaluronic acid (HA), a naturally occurring substance in the human body that helps keep skin hydrated and plump. When HA is injected it adds volume and definition to give them a youthful look.
How painful are dermal fillers?
The pain level will vary depending on the type of dermal filler being used and the area being treated, but dermal fillers generally cause some minor discomfort. Most patients describe dermal fillers as just uncomfortable, with a burning or biting sensation when the filler is injected into the tissue. Fortunately, we offer numbing creams or local anesthetics, which can help minimize any discomfort experienced during dermal fillers.
Are there any risks involved?
Like any medical procedure, there are some risks associated with dermal filler injections—namely bruising, swelling, redness and pain at the injection site. However, these side effects should subside within a few days after treatment. Lastly, it's essential that you find a reputable cosmetic doctor who has experience administering dermal fillers so that you get optimal results with minimal risk involved. Dr Thuva Amuthan trains many healthcare professional across the country in his expert techniques.

After dermal fillers treatment, it is important to follow the aftercare instructions provided by your doctor. Generally, it is best to AVOID:
- Touching the area or applying any make up for at least 3 hours
- Hot drinks or enviroments such as baths, steam or sauna for at least a day
- Drinking alcohol or strenuous exercise for the first day
- direct sun exposure for the following week
- Additionally, it is advised not to massage or apply pressure to the injection site in order to give the filler enough time to settle and achieve desired effects.
How can you make the reults last?
Dermal fillers are a great way to look energetic and refreshed, but many people want to make their dermal fillers last as long as possible. One of the best things you can do to extend the life of dermal fillers is to take preventative measures, such as:
- staying hydrated
- wearing sunscreen
- avoiding cigarettes and excessive alcohol.
You should also visit your doctor for regular follow-up appointments. This will help them monitor the dermal filler’s progress and provide assistance if there are any issues. Additionally, it is important to set realistic expectations about results and timelines as it does take time for dermal fillers to fully set in. Taking all these steps will enable dermal fillers to last longer than originally anticipated.
