Dermafillers: (Hyralonic Acid)
Dermafillers are used to soften and contour lines, folds, and wrinkles.
The most commonly used fillers are Hyaluronic acid (HA = a substance found naturally in the skin that gradually reduced as we age).
HA fillers are not permanent and lasts anywhere from 4-18 months depending on the product used and where it is placed.
The solution is injected into the skin to add volume and create a more youthful appearance.
HA can be dissolved if complications occur.
Derma fillers are an ideal solution for patients wanting to
- Soften deep lines from the mouth to nose (Naso Labial area).
- Soften lip lines, enhance lip volume, create a more defined lip border.
- Lift and soften the area at the corner of the mouth (Mariottte area).
- Restore facial and cheek volume or sculpt the cheeks for more definition.
- Define jaw lines.
At Glama Tox I use Juvederm Ultra (which contains local anaesthetic), and Amalian.
Both of these fillers are very high quality with good durability.
A local anaesthetic cream is always used before injecting to reduce discomfort as much as possible.
