Dermal Fillers

Dermal Fillers

Greenhills Facial Renu offers a range of dermal fillers. These treatments can provide a more alluring, less stern appearance and also reduce some of the signs of ageing.  This popular treatment smooths and plumps out deep lines in areas such as the nasolabial and marionette folds/lines.

Dermal fillers are a simple and effective way to treat the marionette and nasolabial folds/lines.

The marionette lines are very ageing on a face. They can make a person look unhappy and negative. Filling marionette folds/lines make a person look happier and more positive.

Dermal Fillers have been used since the 1800s. Past fillers have included silicone, animal collagen and fat. Currently, we use Hyaluronic acid products for their low incidence of allergies.

Dermal Filler can be used to lift and treat the nasolabial folds, which occur with ageing and volume loss in the cheek area.  Injections will make the area look smoother and younger, with less of a demarcation between the cheeks and the lower face.

Dermal fillers have no muscle-relaxing properties whatsoever, unlike Dysport and Botox injections.

FAQ

How long does the procedure take?

The appointment is booked in for 1 hour. This includes initially chatting about your desired results, applying anesthetic cream and doing the injection.

Are Dermal Fillers painful?

Short answer is no. It is a very simple procedure. The treatment doesn’t hurt because we apply anesthetic cream to numb the area being treated.

How long do Dermal Fillers last?

Results last for up to 12 months but we suggest coming back between 6-9 months to maintain the effects and reduce loosing volume.

What are the side effects of the procedure?

Generally any side effects, such as minor redness, swelling and possible bruising should resolve after 24 hours.  We suggest you go home and ice your lips to minimize swelling afterwards and cease taking any blood thinning medications 1 week before your treatment.

What is Hyaluronic Acid?

Hyaluronic acid is a sugar complex found in all living organisms. It is mainly found in the skin where it improves volume, pliability and cell growth. It is also found in the muscles and skeleton. It has the ability to bind to water and is used in moisturisers.
