Naturally occurring substances in the body are essential for maintaining skin firmness and elasticity and helping the skin appear plump and hydrated. As we age, levels of these substances around the face and décolletage gradually reduce, contributing to the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, sagging skin, and a lack of hydration.
At H&H Aesthetic Medicine, we offer a selection of dermal fillers at H&H Aesthetic Medicine, we offer a selection of dermal filler treatments to help improve a range of concerns. Our experienced cosmetic doctors will discuss the suitable type of filler and treatment plan for you during your consultation.
At your first visit you will have a complimentary consultation where your practitioner will conduct a detailed, full-face analysis and discuss your expectations and goals. We will also discuss the risks associated with the treatment along with the recommendation of product and amount of product needed to reach your goal.
Dermal fillers are made to replace the skin’s natural loss of volume. They’re designed to minimise the amount of wrinkles, lines and folds on your face, hands and neck.
Dermal Fillers are a product made up specially formulated hyaluronic acid. Hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring sugar found in our skin which helps our skin stay hydrated and plump; as we age our levels of hyaluronic acid diminish along with collagen and elastin. Our muscles and fat pads also change with age which shows as volume loss, increased number of lines and wrinkles along with a decrease of elasticity.
So, this is where dermal filler can help. When these products are injected into areas of concern, they will increase hydration, create structure and shape to the face; re-creating the natural contour of the face and lips leading to improvement of signs of aging and volume loss.
Dermal fillers can last anywhere from 6 to 18 months. However, it is important to note with any cosmetic treatment including dermal fillers, the longevity of results depends on a variety of factors such as the area of concern. The amount and type of product used and the patient’s medical history and lifestyle factors can all play a role in how long the treatment lasts. Our body will naturally break down this product slowly overtime so keep in mind dermal filler is not a permanent fix.
Dermal Fillers are a highly researched and popular treatment where serious side effects are rare in the hands of experienced injectors. Our doctors here at H&H Aesthetic Medicine have extensive experience and training in performing cosmetic injectable treatments and pride themselves on providing the safest and most effective treatments possible. As with any treatment there are risks and side effects; your doctor discuss these with you during your consultation.
Most patients may see some redness, swelling, slight tenderness or discomfort and some bruising for a few days after their dermal filler treatment. Our cosmetic doctors will strive to make the treatment as comfortable as possible for you.
