Cosmetic - Fillers
Injectable dermal fillers are a simple, non-surgical choice for smoothing out facial lines and wrinkles. They come in a variety of thicknesses and are typically used in the lips, cheeks and under the eyes. They can also be used for non-surgical augmentation of the chin, nose and can even assist with the improvement of acne scarring, crow's feet around the eyes, frown lines on the forehead and fine lines on the lip area. To understand the benefits of dermal fillers it is important to understand the makeup of the skin and why it becomes lined and wrinkled.
Other products available stimulate your skin to generate collagen. These tend to last longer but are not recommended for use in all areas.
For some areas a local anaesthetic may be applied to the skin, or the area may be numbed with an injection of local anaesthetic but many find the treatment of the cheek area does not require numbing. The entire procedure will take approximately 30 minutes and is carried out in the clinic.
At Indus Hygiea Skin Clinics we use a variety of dermal fillers to suit the needs of each client. Regulations prevent us from naming them on the internet. We can of course discuss them with you fully at consultation.
This information is offered to you as an outline for the benefits of fillers and should not be used to make final decisions on your suitability. Not all clients are suitable for filler injections or collagen stimulants so a consultation is essential.
