Cosmetic Injectable Fillers
Cosmetic Fillers have become the gold standard in rejuvenating our appearance. Instant results, little to no downtime, and excellent safety ratings, have given rise to the popularity of these procedures. Fillers have the ability to not only reduce lines and wrinkles – but to restore the volume that is lost through the aging process. Facial contours are enhanced, skin is smoothed, and the overall appearance is refreshed and more youthful. Whether you desire a full, sensual mouth with defined contours, or an all-over revitalization, fillers offer a unique solution.
Types of Cosmetic Injectable Fillers:
Results may last from six to twelve months
Semi-Permanent to Permanent Fillers:
Permanent with occasional touch-ups required
How they work
Using a fine gauge needle – lines, wrinkles & folds are plumped up from within, creating a smooth, light reflective surface. Areas that have lost density and volume – are filled from the underside of the skin to restore natural fullness, and to re-create youthful contours.
What to expect during treatment
Dependant on the type of filler being used and the depth of application: areas may be numbed using a topical or injectable anaesthetic, to ensure your comfort. Most procedures take thirty minutes to an hour with results that are instantly visible. Since all of the products used in our clinic are biocompatible and use no animal by-products, allergy testing is not required. Most patients are able to return to work the next day.
Side effects are generally mild and may include temporary swelling, redness and possible bruising which may last up to 3-5 days. During your initial consultation – we will discuss methods which may reduce your chance of bruising.
