As we grow older, our bodies start producing less collagen and elastin, the two proteins that make sure our skin remains strong, flexible and retains its elasticity. Hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring substance which keeps our skin and soft tissues hydrated and firm, likewise decreases with age. As a result, the skin becomes thinner, dehydrated and loses its elasticity and flexibility. The face loses its volume and plumpness, wrinkles become deeper, the cheeks and eyes appear hollow and sunken.
A treatment with dermal fillers can restore the lost volume and plumpness, fill out the deep-set wrinkles and sunken areas and give an overall more relaxed, youthful appearance to the face.
Dermal fillers are medically developed solutions containing usually hyaluronic acid that are injected directly into the affected areas to add volume and revitalise the skin. As hyaluronic acid is re-introduced under the skin, the face is hydrated, facial features are enhanced, and a subtle, natural result of youthful plumpness is restored.
Results are visible immediately after the first treatment and can last up to 12-18 months, depending on the product used, the area treated, your skin type and the reaction you had to the treatment. As the results are temporary, additional sessions may be needed to retain the desired effect, once the solution is naturally absorbed by the body.
Hyaluronic Acid Fillers are safe, but some patients may experience some swelling, tenderness or redness on the area that was injected. These reactions are typically mild and usually disappear in a few days.
There are several hyaluronic acid fillers available. Here at K Skin Studios we use Juvederm, Restylane and Teosyal. Our qualified medical professionals will help you determine which dermal filler is suitable for you.
Hyaluronic Acid Fillers may be used to restore volume in the lips and cheeks, or on the bridge of the nose to alter its shape (non-surgical rhinoplasty).
Additionally, there are several types of wrinkles that can be smoothed and filled out, such as: laughter lines, marionette lines, frown lines, forehead lines, smoker’s lines, crows feet, neck lines and tear troughs.
To avoid unpleasant reactions and side effects and ensure the best possible results for a long-lasting, subtle look, all cosmetic injections must be performed by qualified medical or dental practitioners, in a safe, regulated, clinical environment, complying to the highest industry standards.
Our skin experts will assess your condition and advise you on the treatment best suited to your needs, skin type, and desired result.
