What exactly are dermal fillers, and how do they work?


Dermal fillers are injectable gels made of hyaluronic acid, which is a naturally-occurring substance in our bodies. They work by adding volume and hydration to the skin, smoothing out wrinkles and fine lines, and giving your face a more youthful, refreshed appearance.

What areas of the face can be treated with dermal fillers?


Dermal fillers are incredibly versatile and can be used to enhance and rejuvenate a wide range of facial features. Common treatment areas include the cheeks, lips, nasolabial folds (smile lines), marionette lines, under-eye area, and temples.

What can I expect during a dermal filler treatment?


First, our Dermal Filler specialist will clean and numb the treatment area to ensure your comfort. Then, we will carefully inject the filler into the targeted areas using a fine needle or cannula. The entire process usually takes less than 30 minutes.

Is there any downtime after a dermal filler treatment?


Most people are able to return to their normal activities immediately after their dermal filler treatment, although some minor swelling, bruising, or redness may occur at the injection sites. These side effects typically subside within a few days.

Does a Dermal Filler Treatment Hurt?


A surface anaesthetic cream will be applied to numb the area before treatment, so although you will experience minor discomfort during the injection, it's relatively painless.

How Long Will the Effect of my Dermal Filler Treatment Last?


Dermal fillers gradually biodegrade. The time this takes will depend on how your body reacts to the hyaluronic acid used in the filler, and which area has been treated, but as a guide, usually the effect last between 6 and 18 months in the cheeks and face. Lip fillers usually last between 4-6 months.

Is there a Difference between Botox and Dermal Fillers?


Yes, these are two completely different procedures. Botox stops the small muscles in your face from making the movements that cause wrinkles. Dermal fillers plump from below the wrinkle to make your skin smoother. Depending on your needs, however, we may suggest using a combination of both techniques to achieve the best results.
