FILLERS (FROM R2 000)
Dermal fillers also known as liquid facelifts are used to restore volume and smooth out fine lines and wrinkles to achieve a more youthful appearance. Fillers are best used to treat static lines, these are ingrained lines that form due to ageing muscle tissue, and lack of collagen and elastin fibres in your skin.
These days fillers are quick and simple procedures that yield stunning results, they are completely safe provided you source treatment from a qualified, reputable professional.
When we reach a certain age – usually from about 25 the body stops producing collagen and elastin fibres. These two proteins work together to keep skin elastic and tissue firm, without them the existing collagen in the body begins to break down and the typical signs of ageing (wrinkles, sunken cheeks, hollow eyes etc.) begin to occur. Dermal fillers act as a natural replacement for these lost proteins. They work in harmony with the body’s remaining elastin and collagen and give the skin a more youthful bright appearance. Fillers also add volume to the injected areas smoothing out lines and creases. The procedure is brief, in most cases the treatment will be administered in under half an hour. Normally the only side-effects associated with dermal fillers are small amounts of swelling and bruising from where the needle is inserted. These will disappear after a few days and can be covered by makeup. A little itching and tenderness is also sometimes reported. Dermal fillers will last anywhere between 6 and 18 months. This will depend on the type of hyaluronic acid used as well as how the individual patient responds to the treatment.
Fillers are most prominently used on the lower parts of the face especially around the lips. People who are looking to add volume and structure to the face are the usual candidates for filler treatments. However, fillers can also be used to great effect in other areas of the face especially when combined with a Botox treatment.
It is generally advised that pregnant and breastfeeding mothers avoid dermal fillers.
