Dermal fillers are injectable products designed to volumise, lift and contour the face whilst smoothing out lines and wrinkles. As we age, our skin becomes more susceptible to wrinkles and fine lines, especially due to sun damage and muscle movement. Facial fillers provide a solution to such damage through facial injections.
Prior to treatment we usually use local anaesthetic cream to increase comfort during the procedure. Injection sites will be massaged to promote even integration of the product into the tissue. Treatments usually take between 30 minutes and 1 hour to complete. Results are immediate and can last between 6-12 months depending on your lifestyle, skin structure, age and your desired outcome.
