Anti-wrinkle fillers, dermal fillers or advanced hyaluronic acid injections are incredible anti-aging solutions for many men and women.
They can effectively address concerns such as fine lines and wrinkles and help enhance facial volume, redefine lips and smooth out fine lines and wrinkles.
How do dermal fillers work?
Dermal fillers are small injections of gel, typically made up of hyaluronic acid. These injectable fillers work by restoring the volume, lifting and plumping the areas that may have lost elasticity and firmness over time.
Your doctor will apply a topical or local anesthetic and inject the fillers, using a small needle, into the target area. Most patients are very pleased with the results of their dermal fillers.
Which areas can be treated with fillers?
Fillers can redefine the lip area for a fuller, youthful, natural-looking pout. They help fight aging signs of saggy skin, dark under-eye circles and are effective for many parts of the face that are prone to fine lines, wrinkles or loss of volume. It also works in removing wrinkles from the hands.
Injectable fillers work best in combination with other rejuvenating treatments, and your doctor can recommend what would work best. There is usually no recovery period.
Results can last six to 12 months
What are the risks?
- Infection at the injection site
- Allergic reaction
- Formation of tiny bumps under the skin
- Skin discolouration.
- Movement of the filler away from the intended treatment area.
- Skin necrosis (ulceration or loss of skin from disruption of blood flow)
As with any procedure, there could be complications. Severe complications are uncommon, but may need to be treated with surgery or medicine.
