Dermal Filler Injection

What is Dermal Fillers Treatment?

Dermal FillersA Dermal Filler Treatment or dermal filler injection is a non-surgical procedure. A specific dermal filler gel is carefully injected beneath the skin’s surface using a fine needle or cannula.

A dermal filler injection evens out facial wrinkles, lines and volume depleted areas, as well as enhancing skin hydration, definition and contouring effects to give a naturally youthful and refreshing look and feel.

Benefits of having a Dermal Filler Treatment?

Our facial characteristics, beauty and youthful features are inevitably affected by a variety of factors such as sun exposure, the ageing process and sometimes natural conditions such as depressed acne or surgical scarring. Dermal filler injections can enhance and restore youthful features providing symmetry and volume by ‘filling in’ or ‘plumping up’ static facial lines, wrinkles, folds, and scars that create a smooth textured surface to give an instantly dramatic rejuvenated appearance without significant cost, downtime and surgery.

How does a Dermal Filler Treatment work?

Dermal Fillers TreatmentThe production of collagen and elastin progressively diminish due to environmental factors, repetitive muscle contractions, genetics and age. This can lead to skin laxity, wrinkles and volume loss which manifest as areas of flat, hollow, sagging skin that create a tired and aged appearance.

Dermal fillers revitalise and add volume to the skin, instantly diminishing the appearance of lines and wrinkles, and giving a natural softer look.

Dermal Fillers are sterile, clear, colourless, smooth injectable gel that consists of a non-animal stable chemical extract, processed and purified in a laboratory from naturally complex sugar chains. It consist of a substance that mimics what is naturally found under the skin.

This smooth gel is injected below the skin’s surface using a fine needle or cannula to replace the naturally lost volume. A local anaesthetic cream or injections are often given prior in order to numb the areas to be treated. The whole procedure takes 30-45 minutes approximately and most people are able to return to work and social activities immediately.

Can a Dermal Filler treatment be combined with other products and procedures to give a more rejuvenated appearance?

Many people use a combination of cosmetic products and procedures to achieve a more rejuvenated appearance.

Anti wrinkle injection is used to relax the muscles we use to form facial expressions and dynamic wrinkles.

When we are young, our skin springs back to its initial position. However, as we get older, dynamic wrinkles remain on the skin to form static wrinkles and folds that are still present even after resting. Placing a dermal filler product below the skin’s surface can literally fill in or plump up these static wrinkles and folds. This treatment combination can aesthetically enhance and achieve longer lasting results.

Skin care products, Dermapen 4, Vibraderm, PRP and Palomar laser skin resurfacing can also improve your skin condition.
