Dermal filler is made up of hyaluronic acid, a natural substance that is already found in our skin. The treatments should last 6-12 months depending on the individual and 4 monthly top ups are advised to maintain best results.
Filler is injected into the body and boarder of the lip area using various sharp needle techniques to plump and shape the lips.
Over time we loose the natural volume and plumpness in are face and cheek area causing the skin to droop and the face to look withdrawn. Injecting Dermal Filler into this area is an amazing way to bring back the fullness, lifting the check area and surrounding skin giving a much more youthful look. We can also inject filler into the cheekbone area, giving that amazing sharp 'insta' finish. For cheek filler the soft cannula technique is used. This is the safest way to administer the product to help avoid vascular occlusion. Instead of using the traditional sharp needle the soft cannula is a longer blunt needle that is passed into the skin via a small hole, the blunt cannula then passes through the tissue delivering the product without puncturing the blood vessels.
Filler is placed along the jaw line enhancing this area giving you a more defined look. As cheek filler above, we use the safe soft cannula technique for this treatment. Please note that this treatment is only suitable for the average to low BMI client. If you are one of our lovely rounded clients unfortunately the filler will just not hold and give any results.
Filler can be used to plump out the chin completely changing someone's profile and putting balance back into the face. This treatment can also be used to fill out a 'bum chin' or any dimples in the chin area.
