Facial Lines and Wrinkles

Dermal fillers provide one of the best ways to treat facial lines and wrinkles. Dermal fillers are injectable material made of hyaluronic acid, a substance naturally found in our body. The function of hyaluronic acid naturally in the body is to maintain the skin’s volume and hydration. It is appropriate, therefore, that fillers made from such materials are the products used to plump up, or fill in hollows and creases in the skin in areas which lose fat or internal shape with normal ageing.

Facial Lines Treatment.

As we know, facial lines and wrinkles come with age, exposure to the sun and are the legacy of facial activity and expressions. Dermal fillers can be used to reduce the appearance of facial lines and wrinkles, and they instantly rejuvenate and restore smoothness, vitality and youthfulness to the face.

  • How are dermal fillers administered to treat facial lines and wrinkles?

    After assessment by one of our qualified practitioners, dermal fillers are administered by way of small injections through a fine needle around the area to be treated, then massaged into the skin to encourage even coverage and instantly plumping up the lines and wrinkles.

    The doctor has control over the volume of filler used, using just the right amount to create a natural – looking effect. This is vital to ensure a younger looking, fresher face.

  • Is the process of treating facial lines and wrinkles a painful one?

    Some of the fillers used at the Clinic have inbuilt Lidocaine, an anaesthetic, to help numb the area treated so as to cause minimum discomfort.

    Others do not, and so a topical anaesthetic is applied, which has the same effect. The process is comparatively quick, and the furrows and lines are immediately softened, instantly rejuvenating the area being treated.

  • How long does the effect of treatment of facial lines and wrinkles last, and are there any side effects?

    Normally, the effect of the treatment with dermal fillers lasts between 6-12 months. .

    Once the injections have been administered, the area may be a little swollen for a short time. Side effects are rare, as hyaluronic acid is naturally occurring in humans, and over time, will be broken down and eliminated naturally through the body.

  • Who will perform the dermal fillers for the facial lines treatment?

    As with all Dermal Fillers treatments, the Facial Lines treatment for men and women is performed by one of our qualified practitioners and supervised by Doctor Maria Gonzalez.
