Dermal Fillers

Dermal Fillers

How does it work?

A hyalauronic acid based gel substance is injected into areas of the face to enhance features, or replace volume. Dermal fillers can be used to enhance your natural features, correct asymmetry and/or restore volume to areas of depletion.

 

How long does it last?

Results are apparent immediately, but will be optimal at 2-3 weeks after treatment. Treatment results can last from 6-18 months, depending on the treatment area and product used. The filler will naturally degrade slowly over time. Repeated treatment is recommended for best results.

 

What areas can be treated?
  • Lips
  • Cheeks
  • Chin
  • Lower Face
  • Jawline
  • Marionette Lines (downturned mouth corners)

How much will I need?

Dermal filler is usually supplied in 1ml syringes. The volume of dermal filler you will require will depend on many factors including your age, the area(s) being treated, genetics, lifestyle, your desired look, and the product used.
