Fillers are a made of a complex carbohydrate molecule. Similar to what is in your skin already.
As we age we lose collagen, elastin and volume in our skin. Contributing to sagging and hollowing of certain areas of the face , exacerbating the Nasolabial folds and jowls.
We can use Fillers to replace volume and fill lines giving a more rejuvenated appearance.
The results are immediate, you may have some redness and swelling for 1-2 days. But the general improvement is visible immediately.
Results can last 6-18 months. It depends on the filler used and the area treated.
For example lip fillers may not last as long as it a very mobile area.
Cheeks fillers may last 9-15 months.
The filler already has anaesthetic mixed in with it so it is more comfortable.
We can also use topical anaesthetic or dental nerve blocks of flip enhancements.
The procedures usually take 15-45 minutes depending on how many areas treated in one session.
You can not have filler if you are pregnant or breast feeding are trying to conceive.
Some Autoimmune conditions may make it inappropriate. A comprehensive medical history will be taken at the cosmetic consultation.
As with any cosmetic procedure there can be risks involved.
Your practitioner will discuss these risks with you during the consultation.
