Giving instant results by filling and smoothing out facial lines and wrinkles to temporarily restore skin plumpness. As your skin ages it loses the collagen that help shape and support it. These treatments are an especially effective and natural way to soften deep lines from the nose to mouth area, can enhance thin lips, creating a more defined lip border and lift the corners of the mouth.
Fillers are a safe, clinically proven treatment using injectable gels, a key component of which is Hyaluronic Acid (HA), a naturally occurring substance in our skin which gradually diminishes with age, resulting in dermal dehydration and wrinkle formation.
Using an ultra fine needle, hyaluronic acid gels can be injected into and below the dermis where they combine with the skin’s natural hyaluronic acid and bind with water to create volume and improve the skin’s elasticity. It is a smooth consistency gel that flows easily into the skin for a smooth, natural look and feel.
Prior to treatment a local anaesthetic cream is applied to minimize any discomfort. However, Juvederm – an advanced dermal filler – and is the first of its kind to contain a built in anaesthetic (lidocaine) which makes the injection process a more comfortable experience.
No allergy/skin test is required as the products are of natural origin.
Dermal fillers work instantly, so you will see the results straight away. The effects will fade gradually, and as with all dermal fillers, how long a treatment lasts varies from patient to patient and is due to number of factors. However, results usually last in excess of 6 months and in some cases, can be up to a year. To retain the results you can come back for a top up treatment. If you decide not to have further injections the gel will biodegrade into the skin and simply disappear.
After treatment some common injection related reactions may occur. These may include redness, pain, itching, bruising and tenderness at the treatment site. These have generally been described as mild to moderate and typically resolve after a few days.
We only use products that have been extensively researched and tested, which are backed by science based results and a proven track record.
