What are Dermal Fillers?
Dermal fillers are substances which are used to add volume and reshape various areas of the face. They are made from substances such as hyaluronic acid or calcium hydroxyapatite, which are compatible with the body and are introduced under the skin through injection by very fine needles.
There is a commonly held misconception that this particular therapy only leads to the exaggerated results made famous by some celebrities, however this is far from the truth. This particular therapy was actually developed to produce the most natural, subtle looking results possible and therefore at our clinic YOU can tailor YOUR treatment depending on YOUR desired effect, whether that is the natural subtle look or the more pronounced, prominent and dazzling effect.
What Can Dermal Fillers be Used for?
Contrary to popular belief, fillers are NOT just used for lip augmentation (i.e. making the lips bigger and more defined). They can also be used for a wide variety of other purposes such as:
Cheek augmentation: this is where the fillers are injected over the cheek bones in order to give the face a more sculptured look.
Chin remodelling: here, fillers are used to achieve a variety of purposes such as changing the shape of the tip of the chin or smoothing out lines/dimples.
Nose Remodelling: fillers can be used to alter the appearance of the nose, through remodelling and re-sculpturing the bridge, the tip, the margins and the sides of the nose.
Naso-labial folds, deep creases and Marionette lines: these are sometimes referred to as the smile lines, and fillers can be used to make them either less prominent or in some cases completely invisible (depending on the desired effect and individual variations in facial anatomy).
What Makes us Different?
Your comfort is very important to us, thus we use the most effective methods of pain relief to best target the area of the face that is being treated. Furthermore, we always use the thinnest needles possible for the type of filler and the location of the injection.
Since beauty is so subjective, we follow a customised approach with this particular treatment, whereby we allow you to have your input, not just before but also, during the treatment.
We use our thorough knowledge of facial anatomy and skin physiology to carefully select each and every injection site leading to a more desirable outcome.
We allocate generous time slots for all of our therapies, enabling us to thoroughly explain the procedure, take detailed medical history and most importantly, to listen to all of your needs and expectations and to advise you on the best possible ways to achieve your desired effects. Furthermore, we take your aftercare very seriously; we always provide very detailed instructions about how to get the most out of your treatment.
