Facial ageing is the result of decreased thickness and elasticity of skin, bone loss, and changes to the fat found in the skin. Hyaluronic acid is abundantly found in the human body, and it has been recognised as a key molecule in the skin ageing process. With age, the decreased concentration of Hyaluronic acid leads to skin dehydration, loss of elasticity and thinning.
Dermal fillers contain a modified version of hyaluronic acid able to contour and shape the face, restore the volumetric changes, and naturally enhance the beauty, creating conventionally attractive face with a youthful appearance.
Dermal Fillers are:
- Safe and effective
- Give subtle and natural appearance
- Long lasting, approximately 6 to 12 months
- Able to hydrate, restore volume loss, shape, and contour the face
- Pain-free with a dental block injection
Are there any side effects?
While rare, complications can occur with dermal fillers.
Common side effects include bruising, swelling, redness and pain associated with the injection.
The treatment related side effects – infection, allergic reactions to the product, lumps and bumps – are less common.
The most significant risk with dermal filler is a blood vessel blockage: in rare instances the bloody supply can be blocked by filler. This can cause local tissue injury called “necrosis” which can results in permanent scarring, tissue loss, permanent blindness and requires immediate hospital intervention.
Your practitioner Dr Florentyna will discuss these complications with you and explain the measures to be taken to minimise or avoid harm being caused.
