Dermal fillers are clear biodegradable gels used to restore or add volume to the face and smoothness to the skin.
They are commonly used to replace lost volume in the cheeks, lifting and filling the cheeks, to fill fine lines around the eyes, vertical lip lines around the mouth, folds (nasolabial) from the nose to the lips and on either side of the chin (marionette lines) and pits or scars on the face. Dermal fillers can also enhance the lips to give a fuller, more defined appearance. The results are instantaneous and last 6 to 18 months depending on the area, the product used and individual variation.
The dermal fillers used at Peninsula Life Medispa Medical Aesthetics Clinic are smooth injectable gels. These products are not derived from animals so are safe and do not require allergy testing.
A trained medical professional delivers dermal fillers under the skin surface with a very fine needle. A topical cream or local anaesthetic to help numb the area being treated may be administered. Once injected, the gel plumps and lifts the skin gently once the local anaesthetic wears off movement and sensation are not affected. Your lips and skin will look and feel soft and natural.
The majority of people resume their normal activities immediately after the procedure. We always recommend allowing at least 2 weeks prior to any special occasion to ensure the results have achieved their full potential and any side effects have resolved.
Following all treatments each client is offered a complimentary post treatment 2 week review which gives you and the treating doctor the opportunity to document your “before and after” progress.
