WHAT IS A DERMAL FILLER? Appmed House use the VIVACY Laboratories Stylage and MerzAestheticsBelotero Balance® range of Dermal Fillers.
The Dermal Fillers are selected to suit your skin requirements and injected just below the skin’s surface to ‘fill in’ or ‘plump up’ facial wrinkles and folds. The injections smooth out deep lines and wrinkles by adding volume underneath the skin leaving your face with a natural expression. They rejuvenate the face by hydrating the skin which improves skin elasticity and skin structure. Dermal fillers can also help to smooth out unsightly acne scars. Dermal Fillers have no muscle relaxing properties. Instead, they mimic the natural hyaluronic acid found under the skin. They are considered an alternative to other injectable treatments such as Anti-Wrinkle Injections and can rejuvenate and restore youth to the face as they replace the collagen that naturally depletes over time. This makes these fillers perfect for the lips, cheeks, jawline, areas under the eye, and the nose.
Our Injectors strive for a natural, refreshed look and prefer a conservative long term approach to dermal filling.
WHERE ARE DERMAL FILLERS USED? Dermal Fillers can be used in many places including to assist with reducing: forehead lines, worry lines, eyebrow droop, frown lines, nasolabial folds (nose to mouth lines), marionette lines (jowls), mouth frown, smoker’s lines, vertical lip lines, lip border, lip volume enhancement, mental crease (chin augmentation), crows feet, tired eyes, tear troughs, nose reshaping, cheek augmentation, and acne scars.
HOW DOES IT WORK? Treatment with skin fillers is a non-surgical and minimally invasive procedure that produces instant results. After an initial consultation It takes our highly trained practitioners as little as 30 minutes to one hour to administer dermal filler injections, depending on the number of areas to be treated. You can return to work immediately following treatment. Results typically last between 6 to 9 months, as the injected filler is gradually absorbed into the body’s tissues. You can repeat the treatment as often as necessary to maintain your younger looking skin.
WHAT ELSE DO I NEED TO KNOW? Mild reactions, such as minor swelling, bruising or itchiness around the injection site may occur. Lip enhancement or contouring may result in lip swelling caused by handling and manipulation of the lips during the procedure. This is temporary and may last for a few hours or a few days following the lip injections.
