Dermal fillers rejuvenate the face by adding volume to the mid and lower facial regions, subtly enhancing areas such as cheeks, lips and jaw lines to give you a younger fresher look. Dermal fillers can correct wrinkles, improve lip definition, and address the signs of ageing from the inside out.
How Does It Work?
All young skin has one thing in common: hyaluronic acid. Found in all skin tissue and identical from species to species, this “building block” fills out the space between collagen and elastin fibres in the skin, holding in water and maintaining the skin’s volume.
With age, levels of hyaluronic acid in the skin decrease so we end up with furrows, wrinkles and thinner lips. By injecting dermal filler into the skin, the depressions are filled and the appearance of the wrinkle is softened or eliminated.
Dermal fillers are injected directly into the skin in tiny amounts using an ultra fine needle. A local anaesthetic block can also be administered for added comfort. Furthermore, if the patient does not like the result, the dermal filler can be dissolved with a natural enzyme and, within hours, the skin will return to its former state.
How Long Does It Last?
Depending on the type of filler, the effects can last anywhere from six months to two years. Semi-permanent or permanent fillers can last up to five years, and there are reports of even longer-lasting results.
