DERMAL FILLERS

Various injectable products can be used to plump out nose to mouth lines and deeper wrinkles, or to enhance lips for a plumper more youthful appearance. Facial contouring can also be achieved by replacing lost collagen, helping you to look younger naturally.

Facial wrinkling begins to appear as the underlying collagen and elastin fibres begin to break and wear down. This process is part of the natural ageing process and begins after the age of about 25, but a number of factors such as smoking and sun damage can accelerate collagen breakdown.

FAQ’s

Is it safe?

Yes. We use only products with proven safety record. Hyaluronic acid (HA) is a substance which occurs naturally in the cells of the skin, thus there is no risk of allergic reactions. Even people with food sensitivities can receive these fillers safely. The brands of dermal fillers we use are available in more than 90 countries and have been used as an injectable cosmetic treatment for more than two decades with an excellent safety record.

How long till I see results and how long will it last?

Results are seen instantly after the treatment, although this gradually improves over the course of the following 2-4 weeks. Results can last between 9-18 months although optimal results can be maintained over a long period of time through regular repeated treatments. The longevity varies from person to person depending on your requirements and the severity of the wrinkles that are being treated, in addition to the particular dermal filler being administered.

What does the procedure entail and is it painful?

Generally, basic dermal filler procedures require no anaesthetic as the dermal filler contains local anaesthetic, how ever we us topical numbing cream to make it more comfortable.It is simple and straight-forward, involving a few tiny injections directly into the skin, and takes between 15-30 minutes. Make-up can be applied immediately after the procedure and you can go straight back to work. Result can be seen immediately. Optimal results can be maintained over a long period of time through regular repeated treatments. The procedure varies from person to person depending on your requirements,

Are there any side effects?

Today’s dermal fillers have come a long way since the first-generation of collagen injections. Advanced injection techniques, coupled with the use of micro-cannula (blunt needle) and improved product safety means that significant side effects are extremely uncommon but may include:
Injection-related reactions: these reactions may include redness at the injection site immediately after the treatment.
Bruising: occasionally bruising can occur. However the use of micro-cannula (blunt needle) dramatically reduces the risk of bruising.
Contour irregularities can and do occasionally occur. Massaging can usually smooth out any ‘lumpiness’ however if persistent the filler can be easily and rapidly dissolved.
Infection – as with all injections, this procedure carries a risk of infection. The syringe is sterile and standard precautions associated with injectable materials are taken.
Necrosis – one of the worst possible complications of dermal filler. Fortunately, this is extremely rare. It happens when the dermal filler is accidentally injected into a blood vessel and it subsequently blocks the blood supply to the skin/tissue in that area.
Blindness – This is a very rare complication. There have been approximately 100 cases in the world and is caused by injecting dermal filler into blood vessel which has a connection with the artery which supplies blood and oxygen to the eye. There is no treatment so far for this that has been successful.
