Over the years we lose the fullness in our face that gives us our youthful appearance. Dermal Fillers can be used to cosmetically enhance areas that may have lost volume or definition, such as the cheeks, the hollows under the eyes, the lips, and the various areas of the lower face due to the ageing process. Less is definitely more when it comes to fillers, and, with our skilled Dermal Nurse, the results can be beautifully natural and age-defying.
Injectable Dermal Fillers are also used to treat static (visible at rest) lines, to correct hollowing due to age-related volume loss, and to plump and enhance features of the face for a more youthful look. The lines most commonly treated with Dermal Fillers include the Nasolabial folds (between the nose and the lips), the marionette lines (between the lips and the chin), the vertical lip lines (especially above the lip), and sometimes those around the eyes (‘crow’s feet’). The areas that require extra volume and definition typically include the cheeks, the hollows under the eyes (tear troughs), the temples, the jowls, and, as more commonly seen, the lips. In addition, Dermal Fillers can be used to correct scarring and pitting of the skin due to acne, or can even provide a rejuvenation process for aging hands.
Dermal Fillers are administered using a fine needle. Depending on the area being treated, topical local anaesthetic may be used. Treatment time typically takes up to one hour. Treatments usually last for at least 6 months and sometimes up to 18 months, although longevity is dependent on the type of product used, the site of the injection, and varies between individuals. Normal activities can generally be resumed almost immediately following facial injections, but it is important to be aware that you may suffer from some swelling in the first 48 hours or bruising for up to one or two weeks, so timing of filler treatment is very important.
Both treatments allow you to return to your normal activities with little to no downtime. Mineral makeup can be used to conceal any temporary redness or bruising so that you may leave the clinic without obvious signs of any procedure.
