As we age, our body produces less collagen and elastin which can start to make us look tired and sunken.
Unlike wrinkles which require muscle relaxants to soften them, facial hollowing and folds require a dermal filler to help re-volumise and hydrate the area.
Made from a natural sugar already present in the human body – dermal fillers offer a minimally invasive solution to restore a plump complexion, facial fullness and volume.
What are the benefits of Dermal Fillers?
- Adding definition to the chin and jaw lines.
- Reducing tear trough hollows.
- Restoring volume to the cheeks.
- Softening nasolabial folds or marionette lines.
What are the risks?
On rare occasion, side effects following dermal filler injections can include swelling, redness, bruising and mild asymmetry as the inflammation settles down.
How many treatments will I need?
What happens during my treatment?
- The area to be injected is marked out.
- The dermal fillers are injected and we apply cold packs immediately afterwards.
- Mineral make-up completes the look and allows you to resume your daily activity.
The procedure takes about 30-60 minutes in total, depending on the size of the area to be treated.
Is it painful?
Without local anaesthesia, we would rate the pain of dermal filler injections at around 3/10. With local anaesthesia, the pain rating is reduced to around 2/10.
What can I expect after my treatment?
Much of the difference you see after your initial dermal filler injection will be due to mild swelling; the real results become evident after 3-5 days.
What precautions should I take pre and post treatment?
- Consumption of alcohol
- It is also recommended to avoid the following for two weeks:
- Extended exposure to heat or freezing temperatures
