Adding volume creates youthful looking skin
An instant way to add volume and hydration to the face, dermal fillers are made from hyaluronic gel, which is naturally found in the body. These are injected into the face to achieve fullness, where you have lost volume due to ageing, correct facial symmetry or enhance features such as the chin, cheeks or lips.
As we age our skin cells slowly deteriorate losing its elasticity, this is where you find over time deep lines forming and hollowed areas of the face. One common area that hollows with time are the temples and under eye area. The easiest non surgical method for adding volume to the skin is to use dermal fillers. It is a particularly soft gel that feels natural and smooth and has the added benefit of containing a local anaesthetic for maximum comfort and no down time.
Prices start from $350

If your skin is peeling or sunburnt, we recommend that you wait a few weeks for the peeling or burn to subside. Please do not use any prescription Vitamin A for 1 week prior to your treatment.
Post Treatment: We recommend no harsh acids or scrubs for at least 5 days post treatment. Your dermal therapist will guide you on a recommended skin care program for your skin concerns. Sunscreen must be worn for a minimum of 14 days post treatment to prevent post-inflammatory hyper pigmentation.
We always recommend the daily use of SPF 30 sunscreen to prevent the skin becoming sun damaged. Please apply at least once every two hours when out in the sun.
