Dermal fillers are suitable for areas where there is volume loss, such as cheeks, lips and jawline as well as softening lines such as nose to mouth, and mouth to chin. Results are visible straightaway.
Hyaluronic Acid is a naturally occurring sugar found in all skin and soft tissues throughout the body.
Hyaluronic Acid dermal fillers are manufactured by cross-linking Hyaluronic acid to produce a clear sterile gel for injection into the skin. Dr Christine uses fillers from the Juvederm Ultra and Vycross range, all of which are fully reversible. Treatments last between 6-9 months for the Juvederm ultra range and between 18-24 months for the Vycross range.
Prior to treatment, topical anaesthetic is applied. Along with this, the fillers used also contain local anaesthetic which makes the treatment more comfortable.
