As we age, collagen which keeps our skin firm and plump becomes depleted which can lead to lines, wrinkles and sagging skin. Dermal fillers are a popular and efficient way to improve the appearance of skin. At Alexandra, we use only the highest quality and safest dermal fillers, Restylane®, made of HA (hyaluronic acid), a synthetic version of a sugar created by our own bodies.
After a consultation with one of our highly experienced clinicians, a gel solution is injected under the skin in the area which you wish to be treated. The solution provides support to the skin and promotes natural production of collagen. The biodegradable gel is absorbed by the body leaving only the collagen behind for long-lasting and natural looking effects. You’ll be able to see results immediately and your appearance may continue to improve for up 14 days as the gel settles into the area. Your skin will look plumper, refreshed and more youthful and the appearance of lines and sagging skin will be reduced. Results last between 3 and 18 months, depending on the product used, the area treated and your own metabolism.
Dermal filler treatment usually takes between 20 and 45 minutes. We apply a numbing lotion to the area to remove any discomfort. We also use micro cannulas for injecting wherever possible, which are the gold standard for patient safety and comfort. You will be able to resume your normal activities right after the treatment.
