Cosmetic Filler Treatments
Cosmetic Fillers offer a quick and lasting solution to correct unwanted wrinkles and skin folds and to enhance the lips restoring their natural shape and volume. The use of fillers to restore the lost volume of the tissues of the face has become more popular.
Application of cosmetic fillers is the procedure of choice for a Client who wishes to correct the signs of aging like the undesired skin folds and wrinkles or to augment deflated lips . Also, cosmetic fillers are the best and only non-surgical option for Clients who desire to increase the size of their lips or to improve the contour of the face.
Any hyaluronic acid fillers used in our clinic will provide immediate solution to the existing problem. The suppleness and tone of the skin are naturally restored and the skin elasticity is improved with the filler.
In our Clinic we use only the fillers with proven safety and effectiveness record. The fillers made of hyaluronic acid contain this natural substance that restores lost volume of the skin as it has incredible capacity to absorb 1000 times more water than its own weight!
These fillers are very dense and the implant very slowly disintegrates in the skin after the injection. Cross-linking of the molecules of hyaluronic acid is used to increase density of the filler and to facilitate its longevity.
Initial treatment session involves a consultation with our Cosmetic Nurse or Physician, who will review your medical history, discuss your history of previous use of fillers and other cosmetic procedures, check whether there are any contraindications to using a filler. The Nurse or Physician will also review your cosmetic needs and expectations and will suggest which filler is the most appropriate for you. Also, the risks of the procedure will be discussed.
Upon selecting the filler, "before" photographs of the treatment area will be taken for reference in your confidential file. The cosmetic filler is then carefully injected under your skin where it is needed and the smoothness of the tissues will be ensured by gentle massaging of the treated area.
A follow-up appointment may be scheduled to review the results of your treatment if necessary.
