Injectable dermal fillers can be used for both filling in wrinkles as well as plumping and creating volume and deifinition of the lips.
Injectable dermal fillers are placed beneath the wrinkle and/or fold to fill in or plump up the depression caused by the wrinkle. The areas most commonly treated with dermal fillers include Nasolabial Folds, Marionette Lines and Vertical Lip Lines.
Dr Crimston will administer the dermal fillers through a series of injections. Depending on the patient he may decide to use a topical cream or local anaesthetic to help numb the area being treated. Treatments usually last for at least 6 months and normal activities can generally be resumed immediately following facial injections.
The different types of cosmetic injection have different side effects, however in general possible side effects include swelling, pain, burning, bruising or redness at the injection site.
Usually the side effects of these wrinkle treatments are temporary and localised to the area of injection.
Injectable dermal fillers are available only from a medical practitioner. Please contact us to discuss your individual case and the anti-ageing skin care appropriate for you. Dr Crimston will help you to make decisions based on your age, skin condition, expectation and overall health.
