How it works:
Dermal fillers work by adding volume to the skin and to smooth away wrinkles. A clear gel formulation is injected into the desired area and is specifically formulated to act like your body’s own hyaluronic acid.
Who it is suitable for:
Dermal fillers are most commonly used for lip enhancement (volume and contouring). It is used to diminish wrinkles and aging lines of the face such as the nasolabial folds (nose to mouth lines), melomental folds (sad mouth corners), “crow’s feet” and forehead wrinkles (frown lines). It may also be used for filling aging-related facial hollows and “orbital troughs” (under and around the eyes), as well as for cheek volume and contouring of the chin, forehead and nose Dermal fillers can also be used to revitalize the skin by increasing skin elasticity structure, without the goal of adding volume, for example in the face, hands and décolletage.
How long does it last?
Duration depends on factors like the individual’s skin type, lifestyle and age. After the initial treatment, follow-up sessions are normally recommended around every 6 to 12 months depending on the individual and the treatment.
