Dermal fillers such as Juvederm and Restylane have been popular for many years.
Hyaluronic acid fillers, the most popular and safest, were first introduced in 1999 by a Swedish company Q-Med. Hyaluronic acid fillers have the advantage that they are safe, have a supple texture, and once absorbed into the body begin to change into water leaving no trace.
Areas to be treated
The injections diminish facial lines, plump up sagging skin on face and hands. The main areas to be treated are naso-labial folds (line running from the nose to the corner of the lips), cheeks and of course the popular lip augmentations. Most fillers have virtually no down time; and the look can be gentle depending on what you want to achieve.
The treatment usually takes 1 hour. This includes a consultation with our surgeons, a topical anaestehtic, and then the treatment itself. The results are instant and last for about 6 months.
The popularity of derma fillers from Restylane and Juvederm has seen many advances both in terms of the hyaluronic acid used and injection techniques. In the right hads, fillers can give a natural-looking result often making you look refreshed: the yes look less hollow; lips look plumper.
