A filler treatment is used to plump up lines and wrinkles around the face. When treated the patient gets an immediate result and more natural, smoother appearance.
What is a Dermal Filler?
Fillers are crystal clear gels based on hyaluronic acid, similar to the hyaluronic acid our body produces naturally. As hyaluronic acid is a non-animal based product there is minimal risk of allergic reactions and does not require skin tests.
What areas can be treated?
Dermal fillers are used to plump the lines around your nose, forehead and marionette lines and to enhance and contour your lips. Dermal Fillers are the non-surgical way to improve your appearance and eliminate age related wrinkles. Results from dermal fillers can be seen instantly and with minimal post-treatment side effects, you can get on with life with limited fuss.
How do Dermal Fillers work?
A filler is injected in to the line or wrinkle, cheeks or lips and immediately plumps up the area treated. There are various fillers that we offer at SW Smiles. All of our products are natural so do not require a skin test and are suitable for most patients.
How many Dermal Filler Treatments will I need?
Normally only one treatment is necessary to get the desired results. The amount of filler we inject depends on the patient and your expectations will be discussed at your consultation.
How long will the Dermal Filler last?
The effects of a filler can last between 6 months and 2 years depending on the type of product we use.
Will the treatment hurt?
As your dermal filler treatment is performed by a dentist, they can numb your lips so that the dermal filler injections associated with lip contouring are pain free! In other areas we apply a topical anaesthetic gel which numbs the skins surface before administering the dermal filler to make sure the procedure is as comfortable as possible.
