What are they?
Most dermal fillers contain hyaluronic acid, a natural substance in the body but one that reduces as we age. Dermal fillers can replace this, plumping out lines and restoring lost volume to the face and lips.
What is involved?
An initial consultation is required to ensure that dermal fillers will be suitable and the expected outcomes. Before treatment, the area is numbed with a numbing cream, then the filler injected using a fine needle and massaged into place.
When will I see results?
The results with dermal fillers are instant. and immediately visible after treatment. Results last from 6 to 12 months, depending on the area treated.
Are there any risks or side effects?
After dermal filler treatment, there can be some redness, bruising or swelling around the injection sites. Rarely, there can be more serious risks, this will be discussed at the consultation.
Dermal filler treatment can be combined with anti wrinkle injections to give the best results possible in each individual case.
