What are Dermal Filler Injections?

Dermal fillers, also know as injectable facial fillers are meant to help clients reduce or diminish facial lines, deep folds and other ill-defined features. Dermal fillers are a safe and quick way to restore volume and fullness for facial rejuvenation and youthful appearance. Injectable filler treatments are popular for plumping thin lips, enhancing shallow contours and softening facial wrinkles.

What to expect?

Following a personal consultation with one of our cosmetic injectors, a customized treatment plan will be discussed to achieve optimal results based on your unique facial structures. The results can last 6 – 12 months, after which the filler is naturally metabolized by the body. Yearly follow-up treatments are recommended to maintain results.

The number of sessions varies across patients, but typically 1 – 2 sessions can be enough to restore your skin volume and fullness.

Pre-treatment Instructions

Clients should be in good overall health. A full medical and dental history must be performed on all clients for optimal results.
