The Benefits of treatment
Dermal fillers help to diminish facial lines and restore volume and fullness in the face. As we age, our faces naturally lose subcutaneous fat. The facial muscles are then working closer to the skin surface, so smile lines and crow’s feet become more apparent. The facial skin also stretches a bit, adding to this loss of facial volume. Other factors that affect the facial skin include sun exposure, heredity, and lifestyle.
We use the safest dermal fillers available and these are mostly complex sugar molecules that plump the skin. These natural molecules exist normally within the skin and have become the dermal filler of choice for dermatologists and plastic surgeons around the world. They are fully degradable complex sugar molecules which nourishes the skin and have been used around the world for several years now with an outstanding safety record.
Derma fillers can be used to:
Preparation before dermal filler treatment
There is no need to wear makeup as face will be cleansed prior to procedure. If you have sunburn or an infection, it is better to let the skin heal before you receive a treatment. Prepare yourself mentally for the treatment. Get plenty of rest the night before a procedure, and allow yourself plenty of time at the doctor’s office. Although all procedures are very short – usually 15 – 30 minutes – it is best to eliminate stress by not feeling rushed and hurried.
After dermal fillers treatment
Much of the difference you see after your initial dermal filler injection will be due to swelling; you should see the true results after about 3-7 days. You’ll be able to return to work and wear makeup immediately afterwards, although we recommend you don’t commit yourself to any activities after your first-ever appointment.

How Dermal Filler works
These are in the form of a clear gel. It is injected into the skin to fill the lip, wrinkle or fold. Once in the skin, it creates volume, resulting in a healthy and vital appearance. When injected into the lip it can restore a more natural and/or sensuous look. In contrast to other biodegradable implants, these complex sugar molecules are not extracted from animals. This means no risk of allergic reaction. Therefore, it is perfectly safe to use instantly without pre-testing.
What to Expect
Following your injections, normal activities can be resumed immediately. Discomfort is minimal although there is often some tenderness in the injected area for 2 or more days. The treatment site will usually have some swelling, although this often is not noticed by others. Lips are more prone to this transient swelling than other areas.
Always consult with our medical practitioner before any procedures. Only then can you determine if any procedure is right for you.
