Dermal fillers like Juvederm®, Restylane® and Belotero® are the most effective way to improve facial sagging, short of surgery. They can be gently injected under the skin to restore your lips to a youthful shape, soften lip lines, reduce hollows under your eyes, make facial folds shallower and even enhance your chin.
Dermal fillers are clear gels made from a hyaluranon, a natural carbohydrate already present in your skin that declines with age. Hyaluranon is a powerful hydrator and helps collagen formation. Dermal fillers physically sculpt the face, enhancing facial contour and reducing folds and wrinkles.
We also offer non-hyaluranon fillers Sculptra and Radiesse, which are doctor-only treatments.
Our Registered Nurses & Cosmetic Doctors will guide you through a comprehensive 45-minute cosmetic consultation, to understand your individual needs and desires. Sometimes only one type of treatment may be recommended, or we may suggest a combination of treatments to achieve the skin improvement you are looking for. Either way, you will know that the advice we offer you is customised just for your needs.
Our experienced team will consult the type of filler best suited to enhance an individual’s natural features.
Treatment will vary depending on your desired results. Please note different fillers are used at different clinics.
The Nurse consultation fee is redeemable off your first treatment or used towards any product purchase in clinic.
