DERMAL FILLERS

Dermal fillers are mostly made from hyaluronic acid which is a naturally occurring carbohydrate in our skin. It binds water in the skin and by doing so provides hydration. As we age, the skin loses its elasticity, levels of naturally occurring hyaluronic acid gets depleted and there is volume loss, face appears hollowed out, there is also thinning of lips, making the skin look aged and tired.

We use fillers to address the following concerns.

  • to revolumise and enhance facial contours
  • to define and augment lips
  • to soften facial folds
  • to increase skin hydration
  • to treat ageing hands

There are many fillers available in the market, the one used by our clinic is Juvederm.

1Does it hurt?
No, we apply a numbing cream before the procedure, so you would only feel a sense of pressure during the procedure.
2Is there any pretreatment advice?
We cannot perform the procedure if you have any skin infections or you are unwell. If unsure, please speak to us prior to booking an appointment.
3How long does the treatment take?
30-40 minutes
4How long does treatment last?
Effects start to gradually fade but you could expect them to last between 4-18 months.
5What are the side effects?
The procedure is safe as long as it is done by a trained medical professional but not completely risk free. We would advise you to take advantage of our free consultation to address all your concerns and discuss all possible risks/ side effects before the procedure. You can expect some redness , bruising and swelling around the treated area which should settle quickly in few hours to a couple of days, but if it starts to worsen rather than improve even after 3 days, then please contact the clinic immediately.
