REJUVENATING TREATMENTS

As we age wrinkles can become a concern for some people.  Rejuvenation of your face can involve reducing the movement of facial muscles and therefore the wrinkles that appear when frowning or smiling.  Selectively reducing the movement of some muscles can also give a lifting, more youthful appearance.  Alternatively wrinkles  can be filled with a gel type filler softening the appearance of lines.

DERMAL FILLERS

WHAT ARE FILLERS?

Dermal fillers are gel like substances which are injected below the skin to replace areas of volume loss.  As we age the skin can lose volume and this causes lines and defects  Replacing lost volume reduces the lines and gives a more youthful appearance.  Most fillers are made of hyaluronic acid in a gel matrix.  This is a substance which occurs abundantly and naturally in our bodies.  For this reason it is a very well accepted filler material when injected and side effects are rare.

HOW MUCH FILLER WILL I NEED?

This depends of how much volume is lost and where the filler is injected.  The filler is presented in 1 ml syringes and patient need can be anything between 0.5 ml and 5 ml of filler.
