Injectable dermal fillers
Dermal fillers are very effective for treating fine lines and wrinkles and for lip and cheek augmentation. My approach is to gradually build up the result over a few sessions and soften lines with an appropriate volume of filler rather than rush to eliminate the lines completely.
I also use this approach for augmentation and find a natural look can be easily achieved by placing the correct volume of filler in the right place.
These are gel compounds containing Hyaluronic Acid (HA), which is a natural material found in skin, but manufactured using biotechnology.
HA is very effective for the correction of lines and wrinkles and for lip enhancement. HA restores a youthful appearance and natural resilience to your skin by simply adding to its natural supply. After injection, the HA binds to water and generally remains for months as it is slowly re-absorbed by the body over this time.
Juvederm Voluma is injected into the skin using a very fine needle under the comfort of local anaesthetic. The gel provides and creates a natural volume that is instantly visible.
