Dermal fillers like are gel-like substances injected into the skin to physically lift and sculpt it, correcting wrinkles, folds, scars and asymmetries of the face.
Dermal fillers are used to soften and smooth out fine lines and wrinkles. They are used for shaping of the lips, cheek and chin enhancement to produce a “liquid face lift” through volumising areas where there has been loss of fat.
The safest dermal fillers are non-permanent gels made from Hyaluronic Acid. Because hyaluronic acid is naturally present in the skin, but declines with aging, dermal fillers made from these substances are an ideal choice for rejuvenation.
As we age, our face becomes like a partially deflated balloon. The face gradually looses fat and bone mass and reduced muscle tone. This causes the face to deflate, leading to flattening of the cheek structure, lines and wrinkles, thinning of the lips and sagging of the jowls.
Dermal fillers are used to replace the lost fat and bone structures, re-inflating the face to produce a very natural look that generally takes years off the look of your face. Generally this will give a much more “natural” appearance than a facelift.
Dermal Fillers are excellent treatments that provide aesthetic solutions for a range of common facial concerns.
HA fillers are biodegradable and bio- compatible; there is no need for pre testing, very minimal risk of allergies and little likelihood of side effects.
You will need to complete medical history and a consent form before your treatment and photographs of the area to be treated will be taken.
Your clinician will explain the treatment options available and discuss with you the best one for you.
A combination treatment of Dermal Filler to correct volume loss, treat fine to deep wrinkles and enhancements together with Botulinum provides excellent results and longevity.
Beth may also choose to anaesthetize the treatment area to minimise the discomfort even further.
It is best if you don’t exercise just before and after your treatment and avoid aspirin or anti-inflammatories for two weeks before treatment if you want to minimize bruising.
It is very rare with temporary fillers to have problems after the first two days but it is possible to have an allergy to the product. This is very rare and at Pour Moi we have a product called Hyalase, which is an enzyme to breakdown the product if an allergy ever occurred.
The treatment takes between 30mins-45mins depending on the area being treated. Allow for an hour for the appointment. The results are visible immediately. The gel integrates into the skin for immediate long lasting results that last between 6-12 months and sometimes longer.
Avoid touching the treated area.
You should also avoid using a sauna or steam bath for 2 weeks after treatment. This helps prevent swelling and bruising.
Please avoid sun and UV light exposure, cold, and pressure of any kind on the treated areas until the products integrates well into the skin.
