Dermal fillers used to treat wrinkles are bio-stimulants of the body’s own collagen and consist of non-animal based hyaluronic acid which is a substance that is naturally present in living cells. Filler injected into the skin in small amounts with a very fine needle and have a lasting result of up to 6-12 months and even longer after subsequent treatments. Hyaluronic acid can be used as wrinkle filler, fold filler (Nasio-Labial Grove) or for lip augmentation.
Botox Injections can be combined with dermal fillers to optimise and enhance results. Your specialist will discuss the best option for you depending on your type of skin wrinkles.
Results can be seen immediately and treatment with fillers is safe, fast and leaves no permanent scars or other traces on the face. Fillers add natural volume in your skin to lift and produce new firmness resulting in a healthy and vital appearance.
The amount of dermal filler needed is decided by the specialist during the consultation and varies from person to person depending on the depth of the line or wrinkle. As a general guide lip treatments require approximately 1ml of dermal filler, and nose to mouth wrinkles require approximately 2ml.
