What are dermal fillers?

Dermal fillers are injectable treatments used to restore lost volume, smooth out wrinkles, enhance facial contours and improve the appearance of recessed scars. Made from hyaluronic acid, a substance naturally found in the skin, they provide a non-surgical solution to aging signs.

Dermal fillers work by boosting the supply of hyaluronic acid, a hydrating molecule, that adds volume and smoothes out wrinkles. They offer an excellent, non-surgical option for facial rejuvenation with immediate and noticeable results.

This simple, non-invasive treatment is one of the clinic’s most popular, providing immediate improvement and helping to reverse many of the common signs of ageing. The result of a single treatment is seen instantly and can last for around 6 to 12 months, depending on the area injected, before the hyaluronic acid is naturally broken down by the body.

The Procedure

At SkinGenius Clinic, your dermal filler treatment begins with a comprehensive medical consultation to develop a personalised plan tailored to your specific concerns and goals. By pinpointing the root cause of your issues, we can then recommend the use of fillers for natural and optimal results.

A treatment plan can be arranged which involves a package of fillers administered on the day or staggered over multiple apoointments. Interest-free payment plans are available to help manage treatment plan costs.

The procedure includes meticulous cleaning, application of numbing cream for comfort and precise placement of fillers using a needle or cannula.

After treatment, gentle massaging ensures seamless integration into the tissues, with full face rejuvenation potentially requiring extra time for optimal outcomes.
