We offer a consultation for the treatment of lines and wrinkles & Dermal Filler appointments.
Dermal Filler - Fillers, also known as dermal fillers, are used to replace lost volume. As we age, our cells produce less natural collagen and elastin and our skin becomes drier and less plump due to a reduction in the naturally occurring hyaluronic acid in our bodies. (HA is a sugar molecule that is present throughout the body and lubricates joints and acts as a moisturising cushion.)
Dermal fillers, which are high in HA, are injected under the skin through a fine needle, this adds volume, visibly smoothing lines and wrinkles and making the face fresher. Generally fillers would be used in the cheek area or the lips to plump out the outline and restore volume.
Frequently asked questions
There seems to be alot of different names for each treatment, why is that?
It is just the different brand names from different companies, much like the different face creams from different brands. We all have our favourites, that gives the results we feel are best.
What is the overall effect of each treatment?
These are the most popular anti-ageing, no down time treatments available.
What is a good age to decide upon having these treatments?
Late 20's is a good age, to start thinking about these treatments.
Are these injections painful?
No, the needles that we use are very fine. However, each client is different and we offer a local anesthetic cream.
How long do they last?
Usually last 3-6 months and sometimes as long as 8-9 months. It depends as some are more resistant than others.
How safe is Dermal Filler? Are there any side effects?
Fillers now are mainly hyaluronic acid, which is dissolvable and metabolised by the body. The fillers used 10 or 20 years ago were silicone and that was a problem because they were permanent.
