How do Dermal Fillers work?

Dermal Fillers are used to counteract and combat unwanted signs of visible ageing by Augmenting Volume.

Visible Ageing is wrought by decreased subcutaneous fat and tissue loss. Natural physiological changes, genetics and lifestyle – can all play a role in the pace ageing becomes apparent. Formerly plump facial features and skin eventually loses its lustre and begins to droop, sag, stretch and wrinkle.

Fortunately, Dermal Fillers can correct asymmetry, restore & augment volume, provide Skin Hydration via Hyaluronic Acid, thus rejuvenating one’s aesthetic.

What can Dermal Fillers treat?

Dermal Fillers commonly address these aesthetic indications:
• Tear Troughs
• Vertical Lip Lines
• Smile or Marionette Lines
• Nasolabial Lines
• Chin creases
• Fine lines and wrinkles

They can be employed to perform:
• Non-surgical Facelifts, BrowLifts
• Non-surgical Rhinoplasty
• Scar Reduction; i.e. reduce visibility of recessed scars
• Hand Rejuvenation


How does Botulinum Toxin work?

Botulinum Toxin is often used as a non-surgical Injectable for eliminating fine lines and wrinkles. It works on lines caused by muscle action; so called ‘expression lines’.

With age, the skin becomes thinner and slacker – when a facial muscle is contracted, the skin folds over an “expression line” forming a winkle. Botulinum Toxin works by stilling the facial muscle(s) thus preventing the deepening of fine line. Wrinkles and fine lines are subsequently diminished, and an even surface texture is achieved.

Botulinum Toxin carries the bonus of serving as a dual-purpose treatment. It is a proactive treatment that not only erases lines but also works to prevent wrinkles from forming in the future by reducing the muscle motion that contributes to wrinkles depth and definition.

What can Botulinum Toxin treat?

· Glabellar Lines i.e. Brow Furrows
· Horizontal Forehead lines
· Crow’s Feet

How Long will Results Last?

Both Dermal Fillers and Botulinum Toxin are considered non-permanent. The length of time that the results will last for varies. Results can last from six to twenty-four months.


Injectable Procedure Basics

Injectable Procedures are straightforward. The area to be treated will be cleansed and a topical anaesthetic can be applied to the skin. Following this, precise amounts of chosen injectables will be delivered in strategic locations. The entire process takes between thirty to sixty minutes. Patients are free to leave directly after treatment. As uncomplicated as it might seem, skill is paramount.
