About the treatment with Dermal Filler
As we get older our skin becomes more lined due to the repeated pulling of our facial muscles that give us expression, and the loss of hyaluronic acid and collagen from our skin.
Hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring protein which our body produces, and which helps give the skin volume and elasticity. Restylane is a form of synthetic hyaluronic acid that has been used for many years to correct the reducing skin volume and elasticity that inevitably comes with age. It is gradually broken down after injection, meaning that it’s effects are gradually reduced over the following few months; effects typically last about 6 months.
Injecting the hyaluronic acid that is missing is the recommended treatment in wrinkle areas, and provides a very successful way by which we can soften the appearance of such lines, giving the face a gentler and more youthful appearance.
Generally this treatment is used to improve the area between the nose and the mouth “nasolabial lines” and also for filling deep lines caused by frowning, tear troughs, mouth lines.
We use Hydra Fill products from both Allergan Aesthestics and Restylane products from QMed. This treatment involves the injection of hyaluronic acid (a substance that occurs naturally in healthy skin), directly into the wrinkle contour.

Before and After
You will see immediate results – smoother, softer, more youthful skin – and in many cases the line is literally ‘erased’. A local anesthetic is used to numb the area, and some redness may be experienced for a brief period following the treatment.
Results will last for about 6 months, with repeat treatments offering longer lasting results.
