As we age, our skin inevitably loses its youthful appearance as the production of natural dermal volumisers and moisturisers such as hyaluronic acid (HA) diminish, leaving lines and wrinkles where our skin was once youthful, even and radiant.
Dermal fillers are non-permanent since the hyaluronic acid gradually brakes down in the body. Over time, there is no trace of the filler left in the body and another injection will be necessary if the results were satisfactory and desired once more.
Common areas for treatment include:
- Nasolabial folds
The lines from the nose to the corner of the mouth, also known as laughter lines, can be the most noticeable of all lines of the face. They can be smoothed away and leave you with a subtle, even result.
- Perioral lines
Sometimes called smoker’s lines. These lines are hereditary and you do not need to be a smoker to get them. They can be easily removed.
- Vermillion border
This subtle feature of the border of your lips diminishes as you age causing that annoying lipstick ‘bleed’ and can be easily replenished. This treatment instantly rejuvenates your lips.
Whether you want a little moisturising or full plump lips, Volbella is the perfect product for the lips.
- Marionette lines
These are lines from the corners of your mouth to your jaw. Treating these with Dermal filler can help to instantly provide a cheerful expression.
The duration of effect after treatment will depend on a number of factors like age and treatment, correction undertaken. It is recommended to have one – two treatments per year depending on the product used. Some products now last up to 18 months. The results of the dermal fillers will be immediate although the slight swelling will reduce within 3 – 5 days.
Some of the common side-effects that have been found to occur include swelling, redness, discolouration and tenderness in the area treated.
