Wrinkle Filler (Dermal Fillers)
Volume and fullness in the face suggest a more youthful appearance. The effects of sun exposure, gravity, and facial movements such as smiling, squinting, eating or smoking cause tissue breakdown, leaving lines and creases in these areas. We offer a choice of dermal fillers to correct moderate to severe facial lines and creases, and restore volume and fullness to the lips.
Dermal Fillers: What do the procedures involve?
Gel fillers are a non-animal-based, natural substance similar to that already existing in the human body. No skin test is required, and results are immediate. Some patients prefer a local anaesthetic to numb the area to be treated; others describe the treatment as a quick pin prick.
The gel is injected into the skin in tiny amounts with a very fine needle. This produces volume that smoothes the wrinkle or fold, shapes the facial contour or enhances the lips in a natural way.
The result is instantaneous and produces a long-lasting, natural enhancement, gentle and safe to the skin, leaving no scars on the face.
Dermal Fillers: Duration
Each treatment lasts around 30 minutes. A full consultation is undertaken prior to the first treatment to explain each product, assess which areas require treatment, and determine which product is most suitable for each patient’s needs.
The benefits of treatments can last up to nine months or longer with evidence that having a touch-up treatment before the product has fully dissipated enhances the lasting effect.
Dermal Fillers: Recovery
Slight redness, bruising, swelling, tenderness and an itching sensation may be experienced immediately after the treatment. This is a normal result of the injection. The discomfort is temporary and generally disappears in a few days.
A touch-up treatment within two to four weeks after the initial treatment may be necessary to achieve an optimal correction.
