Dermal Fillers Sydney
Dermal fillers are one of the most popular treatments that are used to combat the signs of aging. As we get older, loss of volume is probably one of the biggest factors that ages our face. In addition, the reduction in the production of collagen means that skin loses its natural elasticity, which can contribute to an older appearance. Advancement with new technologies allows Dr Nasser to address these fine lines and wrinkles without having to put patients under the knife.
Verve Cosmetic Clinic offers dermal fillers as a choice of non-invasive treatment for lines and wrinkles. Dermal fillers use a tissue friendly gel that closely resembles a naturally occurring material in the body. They have the effect of plumping up the skin to a youthful volume, making the face appear fuller and smoother; free from fine lines and wrinkles. This can also reduce the risk of an allergic reaction. This treatment can be used to rejuvenate nasolabial folds, jowls, crow’s feet, surprise and frown lines. The results can last from nine months to two years, with top up treatments a possibility. Our highly trained staff will tell you what you should expect from your initial treatment or further appointments at your consultation.
What Happens during Dermal Fillers Treatment at Verve Cosmetic Sydney clinic?
Dermal fillers are a non-invasive procedure that is fast and simple for the patient. A series of injections with a fine needle are used to restore volume to the area of the face that requires it. The gel is injected into the mid to deep dermis (below the outer layer of skin) for the correction of lines and wrinkles. The injection process takes only about 15 minutes to complete, which means that it does not interfere with your schedule.
Do Dermal Fillers Hurt?
Dermal filler injections are well tolerated by patients. But, some discomfort may be felt if you do not like needles. Yet, the smooth consistency of this gel filler and the added local anaesthetic mean that dermal fillers are easier to inject and allow the least discomfort than other options.
Are there any Side Effects from Dermal Fillers?
Most side effects of dermal fillers are mild to moderate in nature and their duration is short, lasting less than seven days.
- The most common side effects that you may experience include redness at the injection site, slight swelling and discolouration around the area of the face receiving treatment.
- But, these side effects resolve on their own without any complications and are normally minor.
Is there any Downtime Associated with Dermal Fillers?
There is no downtime associated with dermal fillers. This is often nicknamed a ‘lunch time treatment’ since patients do not have to take any time off work to have the procedure done and there are minimal side effects. This means that you can leave the clinic straight away after having dermal fillers and return to your normal routine without any restrictions on exercise.
Who are Suitable Candidates for Dermal Fillers?
If you are experienced lines and wrinkles on your face that you would like to minimise, as well as restore youthful volume to the cheeks, dermal fillers can be a treatment option for you. These can be moderate to severe folds and wrinkles, which do not extend enough to warrant a face lift and surgical procedure. To find out if you are a suitable candidate for dermal fillers, you can attend a consultation with a professional who will go over your medical history.
