As we age, the muscles in our face start to decrease in volume and the skin begins to look less firm.
It’s a fact that we can’t look young forever and that wrinkles will eventually appear, but there are some things we can do to slow down the process and still have a natural look. That’s where facial fillers come in. Besides treating wrinkles, facial fillers can make parts of the face look fuller and also help to diminish unsymmetrical facial expression.
Facial fillers are usually used for the following:
- Dark and sunken area under the eyes
- Reshaping of the nose
- Asymmetric correction
- Plumping of the face and neck
- Naso-labial lines
In our clinic you will be treated by highly trained specialists that will make sure you leave satisfied with the procedure. They will put your safety first while they treat you to achieve the complexion you’ve always wanted.

The most common side effects occur within 24 hours or immediately post treatment. These include: swelling, bruising, redness and tenderness. Immediate side effects usually disappear within days. However, depending on the type of dermal filler used, it can take a few weeks. All our injectors are available for follow-up consultations if you have any concerns.
Dermal fillers can last up to three to six months and in some cases longer. Lips are a high activity area as we use them all the time, this can impact how long the results will last. Please speak to your Cosmetic Injector about this.

Avoid vigorous physical activity or any large intakes of alcohol for 24 hours as this increases the risk of bruising. Aspirin and Vitamin E should not be taken one week before the treatment.
The level of pain varies with each person, however we use medical grade numbing cream and dental blocks where needed to avoid any pain being felt. You may experience a little pressure or pain during and after the treatment.
