Dermal fillers are substances that have been developed and tested for injections into certain areas of skin and tissues for the purpose of cosmetic improvement. They are compatible with the body and can be classified as temporary. The compound is called hyaluronic acid and mimics the same compound in our body. They are used to uplift the mid face, cheek augmentation, lips augmentation, improve the shape of the nose, etc.
The procedure takes a short time but if you are having several areas treated, you will require a longer consultation.This is assesed on an individual basis and results are dependent on the area treated. Fillers generally last from 6 to 9 months. A thicker form of filler can last up to 18 months.
We apply numbing cream (lidocaine) to areas to help minimise pain. Some areas might be more sensitive than others but you will not experience any unbearable/severe pain. You may experience minimal discomfort. Most clients find the sensation odd but quick and less painful than expected.
Yes- we can reverse any Hyaluronic acid based filler with an enzyme called hyalase. This takes 24-48 hours to take effect. The filler is dissolved and area returns to its original state.
