How does it work?
Frequently Asked Questions
What is involved?
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.
Are there possible side effects with Dermal Fillers?
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.
How long do Dermal Fillers last?
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.
Hear from our clients
I often covered up my face with makeup as a result of having acne and the scars it left. My skin is so much better after having treatment and using the right skin care which admittedly I had neglected for many years.
The laser treatments I have had, as well as the skin treatments, has made such a difference that everyone notices. I initially was sceptical as I did not see a major difference straight away, but over that time and the plan created for me, I can now see the outcomes and I love it.
I got so used to having a red face, that when I finally got treatment I wish I had asked about treatment options before. It has made such a profound difference, and I love that I don't have to try to hide it anymore with makeup.
My aim was not to look like I was over done. I absolutely love the subtle and great differences that were made by Dr Gan, without creating a look that was obvious that I had cosmetic injections.
