Dermal Fillers

What are they?

Dermal fillers are injectables that may be used for facial different areas to smooth wrinkles, restore volume, enhance volume, shape facial contours, and rehydrate the skin. As you age, your skin undergoes a number of predictable changes affecting the texture, volume and appearance.

The process of natural aging is caused by combination of 3 factors:

  • Skin Dehydration leading to a decrease in skin quality through loss of elasticity, tone and radiance
  • Loss of facial fat resulting in sagging of the skin and volume loss, which contributes to the appearance of lines and wrinkles.
  • Change in bony structure and loss of muscle tissue, resulting in volume loss, which contributes to changing in facial contours.

What to expect

After four or more treatments the length of time between treatments increases as each session appears to be cumulative. It may be that this treatment allows you to lose or unlearn the urge to frown as after several treatments there appears to be some permanent effect.

Discomfort from the injections is really neglible and has now been lessened by the use of preserved saline in the administered mixture. The preservation contains Benzyl alcohol which prevents the sting.

This product has been used safely for years in New Zealand, by ophthalmologists for belpharospasm (a nervous eye tick) and by neurology specialists for neck muscle spasms. This new indication use was researched favourably in Canada and the USA and is now being used successfully for cosmetic enhancement worldwide. No allergy test is necessary so treatment can begin immediately. It is so simple. The use of Botulinum Toxin A for successful cosmetic treatmentscontinues to increase; over the past 15 years or more we have given well over 20,000 treatment sessions with Botulinum toxin. The areas treated and uses for Botulinum products continues to expand, our clinicians are now treating the lower face and even using larger doses to thin the jowls to slim down the lower law.

FAQ's

How long do fillers last?

Depending on the product, the fillers may last from 6-24 months. Duration also depends on other factors such as the type of treatment, skin condition, lifestyle and age.

Does it hurt?

There is a slight sting, however, we can offer some different numbing options such as local anaesthetic for the upper lip (about a ¼ compared to the dentist so it wears off a lot quicker in comparison), anaesthetic numbing cream and ice.

Down time?

Post-treatment there may be some redness and swelling. These will start to go down after the treatment, but may take a few days to fully subside. Bruising is always a risk, ask your practitioner how to minimise the risks. Cannulas can be used to place deeper fillers without the risk of puncturing blood vessels.

How much will it cost?

Every face is unique and so we must treat each person uniquely for the best possible results. Different amounts of product and different products are required for each person, and so price will always vary. In your initial consultation, we evaluate what is needed to achieve your desired results and can then give you a more specific quote.

Will I notice the difference right away?

Yes, best results can be assessed after 3 or 4 days and sometimes optimal results are only achieved with repeat treatments.

Variety of products

We offer a variety of products to suit different skin types, areas being treated and the desired outcomes. Some of the products we offer include: Belotero, Restylane, Emervel, Sculptra, Juvederm and Teosyal.
