DERMAL FILLERS

What are dermal fillers?

Modern non-permanent fillers are made of hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring substance found in the body, which help to hydrate and add volume to your skin.  As you age, the natural replacement of hyaluronic acid is reduced. Dermal fillers can be injected into the skin to plump it up, make it firmer and smooth out lines and wrinkles.

What problems can fillers address?

Fillers can be used for:

  • Any deep static lines
  • Lines around mouth and nose
  • Cheek Augmentation
  • Lip enhancement
  • Pronounced Tear troughs
  • Chin and nose remodelling

Does the injection hurt?

A very tiny needle is all that is needed for the procedure. The filler we use has a local anaesthetic in it to numb the area.
Some patients report minor and temporary discomfort from the injection.
For lip enhancement, an anaesthetic cream is usually applied.
Some temporary local swelling may occur.

How long does it take?

A dermal filler treatment usually takes around 30 minutes.

When will I see results?

Results are immediate and improve over 48 hours

How long do fillers last?

Typically, the results of dermal fillers last nine to 18 months but this varies from one person to another and the product used for the problem area being treated.
The filler is gradually broken down and absorbed by the body, so the lines, wrinkles, cheeks or lips will ultimately return to their previous appearance without top up treatments. Most clients choose to have another treatment at around 12 months
