Fillers are used to soften lines and plump out the skin creating a youthful appearance and are most frequently used on lines from the nose to the corner of the mouth, on cheek lines or on frown lines.
There are four types of fillers Sculptra, Juverderm Ultra, Radiesse and Restylane and fillers are used to soften lines and plump out the skin creating a youthful appearance. Fillers are most frequently used on lines from the nose to the corner of the mouth, on cheek lines or on frown lines.
Fillers are performed under local anaesthetic through a series of small injections over the area. Treatment can last from 6 months up to 3 years depending on the type of fillers you use.
Sculptra is a long lasting treatment that is used to restore facial volume loss, the improvement is gradual and gives you a natural looking fuller face. Sculptra works by stimulating the build up of the body’s natural collagen to smooth out lines and wrinkles.
Juverderm Ultra is a specially formulated type of hyaluronic acid (HA) that exists naturally in your skin. It’s a natural, biodegradable gel that flows easily and smoothly into your skin, instantly filling out lines leaving a smooth and natural look and feel. Juverderm Ultra is typically used around the lips and corner of the eyes.
Radiesse wrinkle filler’s unique formulation stimulates collagenesis – the production of new collagen which results in increased volume for natural looking wrinkle correction that may last a year or more in many patients. Radiesse instantly corrects wrinkles and creates a more youthful appearance.
Restylane is a natural beauty product that does not affect facial expression ormovement. Restylane is a crystal clear gel that is injected into the skin in small amounts to restore volume and structure. It is based on hyaluronic acid, similar to the body’s own hyaluronic acid. The hyaluronic acid in Restylane is non-animal which means that no skin tests are needed and that there is a minimal risk of allergic reactions.
