Dermal fillers such as Juvederm®, Restylane® and Sculptra® are used as an effective anti-ageing treatment for deep lines and wrinkles typically on the lower part of the face. Anti-ageing facial fillers are the non-surgical way to achieve younger looking skin by reducing deep lines and wrinkles, filling hollows, enhancing sunken cheeks and smoothing the contours of your face.
As your skin ages, it gradually loses some of its collagen which helps shape and support it. Over time, sun exposure, smoking, air pollution and even stress can all age your appearance. The face also loses volume, often leaving you with sunken cheeks and a ‘dragged down’ appearance.
Dermal fillers, sometimes referred to as facial fillers, use hyaluronic acid, a sugar that occurs naturally in the human body, to restore lost volume and definition within the skin, filling the deeper lines that appear typically between the nose and mouth and around the chin.
When undergoing Dermal Filler treatment, our Doctor or Cosmetic Nurse will inject small quantities of filler into the areas where you have lines, wrinkles or indents needing to be plumped up and made to look firmer. Results are effective immediately with results lasting up to 12 months. Our practitioners’ knowledge of the facial structure is vital to ensure you walk away with a natural-looking result.
Dermal Fillers are also used as Lip Fillers to help restore and enhance the shape and definition of your lips.
For lines on the upper part of the face, we would usually recommend using Anti-Wrinkle Injections. At your consultation, you will be advised what is the best treatment suitable to you and this sometimes may be a combination of both Dermal Fillers and Anti-Wrinkle Injections in order to achieve the desired result.
