Advanced Dermal Fillers
Dermal fillers are known as injectables. They plump up fine lines and wrinkles and can be used to augment the lips and facial features by restoring volume and definition by skillfully injecting these into the dermal layer of the skin.
Certain fillers can also be used to define structure in the face when treating the chin, jawline and nose shape.
The most commonly used fillers are Hyaluronic Acid based. These products are complex sugar that is contained in almost every part of the body and because it is a naturally occurring substance within our body, it is safe and very effective with a minimal allergy occurrence.
The effects of filler will vary for every individual. It very much depends on factors such as age, lifestyle, the structure of the skin and the degree of perfection required. Most clients choose to have further treatments within 6-12 months as the hyaluronic acid will be broken down by the body and disolved over time.
Some people can experience side effects such as bruising, swelling, redness, pain, itching, discolouration and tenderness. These typically resolve spontainiously within a few days but in some cases can last 2-3 weeks.
