Dermal Filler for Facial Lines and Lip Augmentation
A dermal filler is a gel-like substance that is injected into the skin to improve the overlying contour. Fillers can be used very superficially to treat fine lines and can also be used in the deeper layers to soften deep lines or to improve facial contours.
A number of dermal fillers are available – They are all semi-permanent and require no skin testing. Results can last from 6 months – 2 years, depending on the product used. Treatments generally take around half an hour and require minimal or no downtime.
Areas treated include:
- Nasolabial lines (deep groves between the nose and corners of the mouth)
- Lips – to give more volume and/or definition to the lips
This treatment also improves the lower face by lifting sagging skin.
