A natural, more youthful look and feel is achievable with Dermal Fillers. Whether it be beautiful natural soft lip enhancement, adding volume and structure to the face, subtle contouring or substantial lift, dermal fillers are the answer you’ve been looking for.
How does it work?
Dermal fillers are a smooth injectable gel made from a natural complex sugar (polysaccharide) called HA. HA occurs naturally in the skin. It helps hydrate the skin by retaining water and combining with collagen and elastin to provide structure and volume. The HA in the dermal filler is not derived from animals and is manufactured and purified especially for the smoothing of wrinkles and soft lip enhancement. It is ideal for replacing the volume and elasticity lost through the process of ageing.
Frequently Asked Questions
The treatment is a non-surgical procedure performed by an experienced medical doctor. Using a very fine needle the dermal filler is injected just under the skin to lift a line or wrinkle or to add volume to the lips. A local anaesthetic can be used to help numb the area being treated. There is minimal discomfort with little or no downtime. This can be a lunchtime procedure, as most can return to their normal activities.
At DRV Skin our dermal filler treatments are always performed by a medical doctor. The doctor will consult with you before the treatment and discuss your medical history to ensure this will be a safe and effective treatment for you. Reported side effects are usually minimal and confined to the injection site. They include swelling, tenderness, redness, bruising, itching or discolouration. In the majority of cases these are temporary and will usually resolve themselves.
There are a number of strengths of dermal fillers, for fine lines, medium lines and deep lines, so treatment is tailored for your needs. How long the product lasts will depend on your body’s metabolism. The faster your metabolism, the faster the product will dissolve. Also, your age and condition of your skin is a factor. We can estimate between 8 -18 months depending on these factors and the area the product was injected.
