Dermal fillers are injections to reduce and smooth these signs of ageing can give you a younger, healthier look. As you age, fine lines and wrinkles caused by dryness, scarring or sun damage begin to form.
Dermal fillers are injected into wrinkles causing the area to “plump” up, filling in the wrinkled area. You may feel tightness or soreness in the areas treated. An overall swelling may also occur. These symptoms should ease within just a few days. Dermal fillers usually last 6 - 12 months.
Treatments take about 15 minutes and are performed on an outpatient basis. Treatments can take longer depending on your level of wrinkles or lines.
