DERMAL FILLERS

WHAT IS DERMAL FILLERS TREATMENT 

With age, the structural components that maintain a youthful face, start to break down. Volume loss occurs, also known as medical lipoatrophy, often causing flattening of the cheeks (mid-face), hollowing under the eyes, and/or line formation particularly around the nose, mouth and chin, often called “smile lines”. Lips may also lose volume and definition, with lip corners turning downwards.

These changes may also occur due to rapid or significant weight loss, smoking, stress, or excessive sun exposure, and may lead to a tired-looking, aged, and sometimes unhappy appearance.

Dermal fillers are made of hyaluronic acid, a naturally found substance that is already present in our skin. The dermal fillers are derived naturally and not animal based. They come in the form of a sterilised gel. We use a range of high quality fillers of different densities such that we that can use the correct filler for you.

We use Juvederm, Restylane, Belotero, Teoxane, Aliaxin and Perfectha range of fillers.

HOW IT WORKS

As we age, hyaluronic acid breaks down and this contributes to the formation of lines on the skin, flattened cheeks and sagging jaw line and so hyaluronic acid dermal fillers can be used to restore the depletions and turn back the hands of time.

Dermal fillers can also plump up, shape and define lips. Results are immediate.

HOW IS THE TREATMENT ADMINISTERED

When considering medical treatment options to maintain and restore facial structure, a full medical and facial assessment is performed, so that an accurate diagnosis can be made and a tailored treatment plan is made with a clear cost breakdown.

The treatment involves injecting hyaluronic acid into the area being treted usually using tiny fine needles to ensure maximal comfort. Alternatively micro cannulas can be used which are blunt tubes to deliver the product to the desired area without using needles, thus reducing trauma and the risk of bruising. The area is cleaned thoroughly and numbing cream is applied prior to treatment to ensure the treatment is comfortable. This effectively and immediately restores lost volume in the face, rejuvenates the skin, and create a lifted more youthful appearance.

SIDE EFFECTS

Though this is a straight forward no down time procedure, rarely mild bruising can occur which is transient and fades with time. Prior to treatment, you will have a full thorough consultation and all possible side effects will be discussed in full detail.

FAQS

Are they permanent?
We can use short or long lasting dermal fillers with an expected result duration of 6-18 months depending on which filler is used. Hyaluronic acid filler is natural and the enzyme hyaluronidase which is naturally present in your body will break down the filler over time.
Can the treatment be reversed?
Yes, this is a reversible treatment and in the very unlikely event you are dissatisfied with the results, the product can be broken down by use of hyaluronidase enzyme injections. Thankfully, we rarely ever have to do this!
