Dermal fillers are commonly used for wrinkles and folds by plumping up the skin underneath them. Fillers can also be used to restore volume lost from the face as we age or lose weight, most commonly through the cheeks, temples, lips, nasolabial folds, jowls and jawline; or to harmonise the face by enhancing lips, chin, nose, brows and cheeks. The fillers we use are made from a natural substance called hyaluronan, which has a long safety history and can be reversed if needed. Results are seen immediately and vary in duration depending on the type of product used and the location. Products used for finer lines and lips usually last around 3-6 months, while products used for volume replacement and enhancement can last on average about 8-18 months.
Injectable fillers may be combined with wrinkle relaxers, such as BOTOX®, and skin treatments, like Vital Hydration, Dermal Needling, PRP and Medical Facials to provide patients with a non-surgical facial rejuvenation. Treatments like these are performed at our Remuera Facility.
The typical areas of Dermal Filler treatment include:
– nasolabial folds (Dermal Fillers are great for lines or folds from the sides of the nose to the end of the lips)
– perioral area (wrinkles around the lips)
– lip enhancement
– hollows under the eyes
– softening early jowls
– nose bridge and tip
– marionette lines (lines from the corners of the mouth to the jawline, accentuating the downturn of the mouth).
Other treatments include using dermal fillers for acne scars, filling and lifting the mid face & cheek-enhancement
