Injections using fillers are used to fill depressed wrinkles and make them even with the skin surface, thereby rendering wrinkles less visible. Most fillers in use today are made of hyaluronic acid, which is derived from a natural substance we all have in our skin. These fillers are eventually be eliminated by the body.
This material can be injected within minutes and the results are instantaneous. Common areas treated include the glabella (frown line between the eyebrows), naso-labial folds (lines between nose and mouth) and lips (for patients desiring lip enhancement). They may also be used for depressed scars.
Depending on the temporary filler used, results can last from six months to two years. There is absolutely no downtime and you can return to normal activities almost instantly. You might, however, experience some swelling, which usually disappears within 24 hours.
Modern injection techniques today also allow us to restore the natural volume and balance to the face. This can be achieved with a vast array of fillers and, in certain instances with an injectable called Sculptra. This material actually stimulates the production of the patient’s own collagen to create a healthier, more toned skin texture.
As mentioned earlier, one of the hallmarks of the ageing process in the face is the loss of subcutaneous fat and volume. We now have an impressive armamentarium of materials that can sculpt and restore the youthful proportions to the face.
All injections are done at our clinic by our specialized nurse injector, Michelle Deskin who has been creatively rejuvenating our patient’s faces since 2006. She has an excellent reputation and is able to handle a variety of challenges when it comes to non surgical solutions.
