Dermal fillers are used for facial aesthetic treatments and are injected into the skin. They are designed to effectively reduce the appearance of unwanted wrinkles, contour and create volume, and to revitalize the skin. Dermal fillers are based on Hyaluronic acid (HA) which is a substance that naturally exists in your body.
How do filler products differ from BOTOX®?
BOTOX® Cosmetic and facial fillers are used to correct wrinkles in different ways. Filler products are natural, and are injected into the skin to add volume to smooth wrinkles such as the lines from your nose to the corners of your mouth (nasalabial folds). In contrast, BOTOX® Cosmetic relaxes the muscles that cause frown lines between your eyebrows.
Who will dermal fillers benefit?
Dermal fillers are great for treating the following: nasolabial lines (between the nose and mouth), marionette lines (the so-called ‘smile lines’ in the corners of the mouth), depressions and blemishes (such as acne scars), hollow or sunken cheeks (caused by fat atrophy due to the aging process), correcting indentations, tips, bumps and unevenness in the nose and chin, and improving contours of the jaw. Dermal fillers can also be used to enhance your lips. A free consultation will find out which dermal filler will be best for your specific needs.
What results can I expect from dermal fillers?
The results will be immediate. Your skin will be smoother and younger looking. Once any swelling has subsided the results will be subtle and pleasing.
Are there any after effects from dermal fillers?
With dermal fillers there can be redness, swelling and bruising which is normal and will subside.
Can I combine other treatments with dermal fillers?
Many of our clients combine dermal fillers with BOTOX® for an overall younger looking skin. If you are exploring procedures to counter the effects of aging, then you might like to try both together for an overall youthful lift.
