How is the treatment administered?

Dermal filler is injected into the area to be treated, this is done through a very fine needle and depending on how sensitive you are and for your comfort, our doctor will also use a local anesthetic. The procedure takes on average 30 minutes to complete. Results are immediate and depending on which product you select the results can have lasting effects from upto 12 months.

Areas for treatments?

Dermal filler is used to add volume and fullness to the skin and to correct moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds, such as the lines from your nose to the corners of your mouth (nasolabial folds), the area that extends downward from the corners of the mouth to the jaw line (marionette lines), or if you simply want to add fullness to your lips.

Post procedure recommendations
