There are many different types of dermal fillers and many varied brands. At Lift, we only use the top brands – Juvederm and Princess – which have undergone many years of testing and research. Most types of dermal filler are composed of hyaluronic acid. Hyaluronic acid naturally exists within the skin and absorbs water, giving volume, shape, hydration, and elasticity. It has minimal risk of reactions and is more readily accepted by the body than other silicone or collagen fillers.
As with all of our procedures, a prior consultation with Klaudia is required before any treatment can take place. Once you are educated on the procedure and happy to commit to the treatment, the dermal filler placement can begin. For certain dermal filler procedures, topical anaesthetic is first applied and left to numb the skin for 20 to 30 minutes. The dermal filler is then injected into the area required using a very fine needle. Results can be seen immediately after dermal filler treatments and generally last for between 6 and 12 months or longer.
Dermal fillers can be used to treat different areas of the face, including the lips, chin, jaw, cheeks, forehead, and nose, and are ideal for dealing with specific issues such as loss of volume, deep lines, tear troughs, and jowls. The different treatment types are explained in detail below. Please note that some methods are more appropriate for some people than others. This will be discussed with you before treatment to ensure complete client satisfaction on completion of the treatment.
