What are dermal fillers?
As we age, our skin loses that plumpness, hydration and elasticity which is fundamental to a beautiful, fresh face. Dermal fillers are an anti-ageing treatment that can restore these elements to the face. A clear gel compound is injected into the skin, giving fullness and hydration to the skin, smoothing out wrinkles and plumping up sagging contours. This gives the complexion a fresh, natural and more youthful appearance.
The substance used in dermal fillers is found naturally in the body and plays a vital role in the skin’s ability to counter the natural and environmental causes of ageing.
What areas can be treated?
Dermal fillers are used for certain areas of the face and body that require volume, firmness and hydration. They are most commonly used to plump the lips.
What conditions can be treated?
– Thinning lips
– Sunken cheek bones
– Smile lines, marionette lines and other facial wrinkles
– Depletion of skin and facial volume
How many treatments will I need?
Dermal filler treatments last for around 20-40 minutes and, depending on your treatment, results can last anywhere from 6-24 months. Factors including age, lifestyle, skin type and condition will affect the longevity of these results. Most people will require a maintenance treatment after 6-12 months.
Does it hurt?
Because a very fine needle is used and treatment duration is quick – usually around 30 minutes – any discomfort is minimal. Topical anaesthetic can also be applied before treatment to ensure this.
