What are Dermal Fillers?

Dermal Fillers are the safest, most effective aging prevention solution on the market today. They are designed to add volume and create an instantly lifted, firmer and contoured appearance.

Most men and women seek dermal lip fillers to restore fullness and hydration. We can even treat the backs of the hands where the skin may be losing firmness. Results can last anywhere from six to twenty-four months and treatments are completely safe, requiring minimal downtime with very few side effects.

Dermal Lip Fillers for enhancement

Filler injections can be highly effective when it comes to softening and restoring youthful contours to the mouth area and lips. They hydrate and fill out lips that are impacted by the loss of collagen, resulting in an attractive plump appearance.

Our lip filler injections can be used to enhance the ‘Cupid’s bow’ (the curve of the lip between nasolabial folds), strengthen the vermillion border (the border around the lips), and soften vertical lip lines on the upper lip. Treating them with dermal lip fillers can also provide them with essential hydration, as well as increasing their volume and enhancing definition.

About the treatment process

The dermal cheek fillers and lip enhancement process involves injecting a stabilised hyaluronic acid based gel, a natural skin component that provides the area being treated with volume and hydration. After the injection, the gel binds with the water in your skin and gives natural volume to smooth wrinkles. The gel also blends with adjoining tissues and allows other nutritive elements, like oxygen, glucose and hormones, to pass between fragments of the gel. The result is instantly fuller, revitalised and plumper skin.

Treatment will provide immediate effect after a single session. The treated area should be gently massaged after injections. This helps the gel to seamlessly blend into the surrounding tissue. One session takes about thirty minutes and the results are immediate. Maintenance treatments are required every six to twenty-four months.

It is normal to experience slight redness and swelling near the injection site. There may also be some other minor side effects, such as slight pain or tenderness and some itching in that same area. The skin returns to normal up to a week for lip treatments.

Frequently Asked Questions:

  • What can Dermal Fillers correct?

    Most commonly, dermal lip fillers are used to increase the volume and size of lips and surrounding contours. However, there are other parts of the face and body which can benefit from the use of Dermal Fillers for both men and women, including:
    • Sunken cheek bones (dermal cheek fillers can plump up and increase cheek firmness)
    • Deep nasolabial folds (smile lines from the nose to the mouth)
    • Marionette lines (from the mouth to the chin)
    • Facial lines (fillers are able to effectively treat wrinkles at depths that other methods cannot)
    • Deep scars
    • Loss of skin and facial volume
    • Sagging contours

  • Are Dermal Fillers safe?

    We use the most scientifically documented HA based dermal filler in the world, with extensive studies that support its safety and effectiveness. Our Dermal Fillers have been used in over ten million treatments worldwide during the last twelve years. The ingredients replicate the body’s own hyaluronic acid, which reduces the risk of allergic reaction and complications, making it completely safe to use. In addition, all of our filler treatments are administered by doctors.

  • How long do Dermal Fillers last?

    One of the benefits of Dermal Fillers is that the effects are long-lasting, but not permanent. The duration will depend on a number of factors such as:
    • Skin type
    • Skin condition
    • Lifestyle
    • Age
    Depending on the individual, the area and the type of filler being used, follow-up treatments are normally recommended around every six to twenty-four months, making this a highly cost-effective treatment.

  • What happens during a Dermal Filler treatment?

    During a treatment the filler is injected into the area being treated in small amounts using a very fine needle. The process is quick, generally taking about twenty to forty minutes depending on the type selected. Dermal Fillers won’t affect your facial expressions, and the benefits can usually be seen instantly.

  • Do Dermal Fillers hurt?

    Some clients may experience mild discomfort. However, a local anaesthetic is used to provide a more comfortable treatment, especially for sensitive areas such as the lips
