What Are Dermal Fillers?

Medical Lasers trained medical professionals are experienced in administering non-surgical injectable treatments. The injected product is a smooth injectable gel made from a natural complex sugar called hyaluronic acid (HA) that helps to reduce the appearance of facial wrinkles, lines and skin folds whilst giving definition to the face. Treatment is very effective in filling lines, plumping up and restoring volume to the skin to give a more youthful appearance. Areas that can be treated with dermal fillers include lip border and volume, nasolabial folds (from nose to corner of the mouth) and cheek definition. The advantage of dermal fillers is they give a very natural and subtle result.


How Does The Procedure Work?

The treatment can take between 15 to 30 minutes. Some dermal fillers may contain a local anaesthetic to localise the area and minimise discomfort. Ice may be used as a pre and post treatment to help numb the area and minimise any swelling.

The level of discomfort from treatment varies between individuals. It also depends on which product is used and what area is being treated as some areas can be more sensitive than others.


How Long Does The Treatment Last?

The effects of the treatment can last between 6 to 18 months depending on the area treated and the type of product used.


Are There Any Side Effects?
