Benefits of Dermal Fillers and Botox

- No downtime.Anti- aging benefits that will slow down aging process.
Dermal fillers are products that are used to restore facial harmony by reducing or eliminating wrinkles, raising scar depressions and superficial fines lines, enhancing certain features and replacing soft-tissue volume loss. With age, our skin becomes more susceptible to wrinkles and sagging as gravity pulls the skin’s underlying structures (e.g. facial muscles) downwards. Exposure to sun and years of muscle movement, SUCH AS squinting, chewing, AND smiling, contribute to tissue breakdown and loss of fat/collagen.
Dermal fillers are used for in conjunction with neuromodulators, like Botox, Dysport, and Xeomin, to contour the jawline/lower face, correct volume loss in the midface/cheek areas, AND treat depressions caused by scars and wrinkles.
What are Dermal Fillers?
Dermal fillers are designed to add volume and create an instantly lifted, firmer and contoured appearance. Dermal fillers are perfect for plumping out areas of the face such as under eyes, as well as in lips and cheeks that have lost their fullness and hydration, and for certain areas of the body such as the hands, where skin may be losing firmness and volume. The process involves an injection of hyaluronic acid based gel, a natural skin component that provides the area being treated with volume and hydration. The result is instantly fuller, revitalised and plumper skin, making it the ultimate anti-ageing solution.
Dermal fillers are the safest, most effective anti-ageing solution on the market today, offering a variety of options that create natural to dramatic volume, with results lasting from six to twenty-four months. The treatment is completely safe and requires minimal downtime, with very few side effects. Maintenance treatments are required every six to twenty-four months, and a customised treatment plan by one of our clinicians or registered nurses can be designed to meet your requirements. All procedures are performed in our Silk Medspa clinics.

Natural Beauty for as Long as You Like
Normally, biodegradable dermal fillers gradually deteriorate, but this product has the exclusive ability of maintaining the initial volume for long-lasting effectiveness. It is able to do this because as the gel breaks down, water takes its place. The less concentrated the gel becomes, the more water is able to bind. When it is totally broken down and reabsorbed, the gel disappears from the body without leaving any foreign implant or waste. For wrinkles or facial contouring, most patients choose to have a follow-up treatment six to twelve months after the initial treatment. After a lip filler, a follow-up appointment is usually required about six months later. It is always the patient’s choice whether to continue or change the combination of treatment. The procedure is very safe and can be performed as often as you like, with few side effects from dermal fillers occurring. This product gives you the all-important flexibility to be in charge of your looks.
The skin’s ability to counter the effects of time, wind, weather and environmental stresses owes much to hyaluronic acid. It naturally exists in all life and its most important function is to bind water and lubricate movable parts of the body, such as joints and muscles. Hyaluronic acid is a polysaccharide that is identical in all species and tissues. So far, more than twenty-seven million people all over the world have been treated with hyaluronic acid based products; even biodegradable implants are usually composed of hyaluronic acid.
The Dermal Filler Treatment
A very fine needle is used to inject small amounts of the product into the skin. After the injection, the gel binds with the water in your skin and gives natural volume to smooth wrinkles. The gel also blends with adjoining tissues and allows other nutritive elements, like oxygen, glucose and hormones, to pass between fragments of the gel. As the cells are able to pass between fragments of the gel, the result is natural and healthy looking skin. Treatment should lead to full correction, but not over correction, at each session. The treated area should be gently massaged to conform to the contour of the surrounding tissue. One treatment session takes about thirty minutes and the results are immediate. It is normal to experience slight redness and swelling near the injection site, and there may also be some other minor side effects, such as slight pain or tenderness and some itching near the injection site. The skin returns to normal one to two days after skin treatments, and up to a week for lip treatments.
