Restore vitality to your face. Lip augmentation, wrinkles, skin depressions
As we get older we inevitably lose firmness and volume in the face and lips and this ages our facial expression. Facial remodelling utilises dermal fillers to rejuvenate the pigments in the face and recaptures your smile in a very natural way.
Facial remodelling is used to regenerate lost volume, eliminate wrinkles, shape the contours of the face, even out creases and enhance lips by giving them extra volume.
What are Dermal fillers and what can they do for me?
Hyaluronic acid is present naturally in the skin and as we age it's progressively lost. The skin thus loses firmness and appears flaccid, leading to facial shape distortion.
With hyaluronic acid fillers we can achieve the following for lips:
- Redefine the 'Cupid's Bow' shape
- Enhance lips and improve their profile
- Improve the labial volume and create a symmetrical and balanced appearance
- Reduce wrinkles that can appear at the corners of the lips
The procedure is virtually painless; you will only feel slight pinpricks.
This technique consists of injecting hyaluronic acid or calcium hydroxyapatite (Radiesse®), to remodel facial features. Both dermal fillers are non-toxic, biocompatible and absorbable. Which filler we use depends on your needs and the area of skin you would like to improve.
Results - How long do Dermal Fillers last?
The effect of dermal fillers can be seen instantly and we check the result after two weeks. Hyaluronic acid is a substance that is absorbed by the body and so maintenance sessions will be needed every 6 to 12 months.
If the filling is carried out with calcium hydroxyapatite (Radiesse®), then the results, while immediately visible, are definitive a month and a half after the session, as the substance produces a stimulation of the fibroblasts and with it of all the cells that give firmness to the face. Radiesse stimulates the natural production of collagen, a vital protein in your body that provides elasticity and structure to the muscles. Whichever of these products is used, your skin will look and feel firmer, smoother and much more hydrated after the dermal filler treatment.
For best results, follow these recommendations:
- Use sun block
- Drink plenty of water to keep the skin hydrated
- Avoid any other infiltration for 15 days.
- Pregnancy or breast-feeding
- Active skin infections
