Dermal fillers are a powerful method for regaining a youthful complexion, minimising the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles by creating volume in the inner layers of skin. Cosmetic fillers can be used to restore fullness to lips and cheeks with a natural-looking result, as well as providing volume in the chin, nose, jaw and hands. Dermal wrinkle fillers can be used like makeup to highlight certain features, and are also commonly used to treat darkness under the eyes. The process is carried out using the same substance that naturally provides skin’s fullness in our bodies with a long lasting effect. Here at Juv’ae we are experts in face contouring to achieve that healthy, youthful and natural aesthetic.

That irresistible plumpness, vibrancy and abundance of a child’s face melts away over the many years of our lives. As our faces lengthen, we look more mature, and as we age even more, we lose so much volume of facial muscle, fat and tissue that the overlying skin sags and wrinkles.

Dermal fillers restore some of that beautiful look of bursting vibrancy to even the most mature face. With skillful application, you’ll look just like yourself – only more positive, more alert, and all freshened up!

At Juvae, we use dermal fillers to artfully design the exact look that you want. They can often be used in conjunction with other treatments, in a cohesive treatment plan to wipe as much as 25 years off your appearance.

  • What are dermal fillers?
    Dermal fillers are gels with a hyaluronic acid base (like a sugar gel), which can be injected into certain areas of your face to either correct wrinkles, fill in deep scars or non-surgically change the shape of certain parts of your face. Hyaluronic acid is a substance found naturally in the body, and over time the dermal filler breaks down via normal body processes.
  • How are dermal fillers different?
    Compared to anti-wrinkle injections, dermal fillers allow greater precision in wrinkle correction, and can more effectively treat medium to deep wrinkles. They do not cause any loss of ability to contract your facial muscles, Compared to other methods of changing the shape of your face (such as your nose, lips or cheeks), dermal fillers offer the advantage of being non-permanent and creating a generally more youthful look. Dermal fillers allow you to experiment with different facial changes in a non-permanent way.
  • What are the benefits?
    The benefits of using dermal fillers include:
    • Fillers can reliably treat wrinkles at depths that other methods cannot
    • They are biocompatible and rarely cause reactions
    • The fillers can be dissolved by injection if there are any problems
    • They are non-invasive compared to surgical solutions
  • What are the risks?
    Ordinary side effects following dermal filler injections include swelling, redness, bruising and mild asymmetry as the inflammation settles down.
  • How many dermal filler treatments will I need?
    A single treatment every 9-12 months is needed.
  • What happens during dermal filler injections?
    The usual procedure for patients looking to lift and liven their face with dermal fillers is: You'll speak with the doctor or nurse about your background and medical history at your initial consultation A treatment plan will be devised, which sets out how we can use dermal fillers (possibly in conjunction with other techniques and tools) to create the face that you want At your dermal filler appointment: The dermal filler product we use contains a local anaesthetic that makes the injection comfortable. The area to be injected is marked out The dermal fillers are injected, and we apply cold packs immediately afterwards. Mineral make-up completes the look and allows you to resume your daily activity. The procedure takes about 30-60 minutes in total, depending on the size of the area to be treated.
  • Is it painful?
    Local anaesthesia can be used if necessary, although it isn't needed for all patients. Without local anaesthesia, we would rate the pain of dermal filler injections at around 2.5/10. With local anaesthesia, we would rate the pain of dermal filler injections at around 0.5/10.
  • What should I expect after treatment?
    Much of the difference you see after your initial dermal filler injection will be due to swelling; you should see the 'real' results after about 3 days. You'll be able to return to work and wear makeup immediately afterwards, although we recommend you don't commit yourself to any activities after your first-ever appointment.
  • What does the treatment involve?
    The physician injects the dermal filler solution into predetermined areas using a very fine needle. Injections for cosmetic fillers typically take just a few minutes to complete, depending on the number of areas to be treated. Our injection specialists apply topical anaesthetic to ensure a comfortable experience, and few patients experience side effects beyond mild swelling or bruising that disappears in a few days.
  • How many injections will I need?
    The amount of dermal filler required will vary based on the area to be treated, the depth of the wrinkle and the desired results. Shallow facial lines will require less solution, while hollow cheeks and deep forehead creases may require significantly more wrinkle fillers to achieve desired results.
  • How long will the results last?
    Results are temporary, typically lasting 6 to 24 months, and treatment must be repeated in order to maintain the effect. In particular, treatment in the lip area does not last as long – usually around three to 3 to 6 months before additional procedures are needed.
