A professional, nonsurgical treatment to help you create a more attractive facial silhouette
Dermal fillers are injected into the cheeks and jaw to restore lost volume, lift the cheeks, define the jaw and sculpt the lower face. Ideal for balancing facial proportion and creating facial symmetry.
A cannula is a very small hollow tube with a blunt, rounded tip and a little exit-hole in the side. It is attached to the end of a filler syringe and can be threaded gently into the skin layers, pushing blood vessels to the side, without the risk of puncturing like a sharp needle.
A dermal filler containing hyaluronic acid is injected directly into the areas of the cheek required to plump, smooth and lift, creating the desired strong facial contour. Hyaluronic acid is a natural sugar found in the body which helps increase volume in the skin.
Dermal filler containing hyaluronic acid is also used to stiffen the skin on the jawline and to define the chin and jowl area, creating a face lift effect.
Using cannula, we can create a higher lift compared to traditional needle techniques and there is less swelling, bruising and pain!
Correct placement of fillers is governed by your facial anatomy and the results required. During your consultation, we discuss your features and desired look, enabling us tailor the treatment to your specific needs.
Before injecting dermal fillers, we apply a topical numbing cream to ease discomfort. A tiny incision is made to insert the cannula. The dermal fillers are then injected into the required areas. You will notice the difference immediately and after a few days your skin will feel totally natural.
The entire process is completed in approximately 60 minutes.
The temporary side effects of the procedure should only last a few days and may include slight swelling, bruising and tenderness.
The long term results of your treatment are noticeable immediately and can last anywhere from twelve to eighteen months.
