Dermal fillers are used to treat a broad range of facial concerns. There are many different types of dermal filler with many different properties.
I use only FDA Approved reversible and biodegradable hyaluronic acid fillers to allow for maximum safety and natural results.
Hyaluronic acid is synthesised in the dermal layer of the skin. Dermal fillers consist of a synthetic hyaluronic acid gel. When injected into different layers of the face it can be used to reduce the appearance of sagging or loosening of the skin, folds, lines, wrinkles and to reshape areas of the face that have lost volume due to ageing. It has the added benefit of being very hydrating as it attracts water molecules. This allows for a plumping and firming affect and gives a more youthful and rejuvenated appearance.
Just like your own bodies hyaluronic acid; hyaluronic acid fillers degrade slowly over time and are naturally broken down by enzymes in the dermis layer of your skin.
Dermal filler injections are administered by using a needle or a cannula technique. Depending on the area treated you may need to have topical local anaesthetic cream applied prior to treatment to minimise discomfort. Dermal fillers contain local anaesthetic within them which also helps minimise discomfort during the procedure.
Dermal filler injections are used commonly to treat:
- Cheek enhancement
- Lip enhancement
- Perioral or smoker’s lines
- Facial lines and wrinkles for example smile lines from the mouth to the cheeks
- Chin enhancement
- Nasolabial fold reduction (the lines between the nose and the corners of the mouth)
- Marionette line reduction (the lines from the corner of the mouth towards the chin)
- Jawline reshaping
Results are visible immediately and last between three to eighteen months depending on the filler used.
I’m super happy with my treatment. You made me feel safe and comfortable.’ “
