Dermal fillers can be used to smooth away facial lines and wrinkles, create fuller lips and shape facial contours, such as cheeks and chin, and revitalise the skin.
The most common areas treated are:
- Nose to mouth lines (the nasolabial folds)
- Between the eyebrows (the glabella lines)
- Lips (adding volume and shape)
How Does Treatment with Dermal Filler Work?
Dermal fillers are gels that consist of a substance that mimics what is naturally found under the skin.
After a consultation with your physician during which your goals and expectations will be thoroughly discussed, your physician will lay out your treatment plan. Your procedure will then begin. A numbing cream will be applied to the treatment area and you will wait about 30 minutes for it to take effect.
A tiny needle will be used to inject the filler into the targeted areas. Your physician may apply ice at the same time to minimise bruising. Between treatment areas or sides of your face, your physician may give you the opportunity to examine your face in the mirror. Your input can be used to guide the procedure as it progresses.
We all want to look and feel our best and dermal fillers offer a simple and painless way to knock years off your appearance. The natural gel is completely safe, and actually encourages the skin to produce more collagen to restore a youthful appearance.
What Happens After your Procedure?
Immediately following your treatment you can return to your normal daily activities. There is no downtime associated with this non-surgical procedure.
How Long Do the Results of Dermal Filler Treatment Last?
Our treatment uses non-permanent dermal fillers. This means that together, we can fine-tune or completely change your results. The results of your Dermal Fillers treatment can last from six months to two years, depending on the type of filler used in your case.
