Dermal Fillers

Dermal Fillers

As we age our skin loses elasticity, structure and volume resulting in wrinkles, folds and reduced facial contours especially around the eyes, temples, mouth and cheeks. Dermal fillers are a popular aesthetic procedure that can restore this lost volume and definition to the face with immediate results and little recovery time. They can provide a quick, safe and temporary solution to restore youthful contours and create smooth radiant looking skin.

 

Dermal fillers can be used alongside other cosmetic injectables such as wrinkle relaxers, and surgical procedures such as face lift, brow lift and blepharoplasty for enhanced facial rejuvenation. Dr Watts offers a comprehensive range of dermal fillers to suit your individual needs and after a thorough consultation can suggest the treatment or combination of treatments that would best suit your specific anatomy.

DERMAL FILLERS PROCEDURE AND RECOVERY PERIOD

Dr Watts and his specialist injectable nurse perform dermal fillers in the comfort of his consulting rooms. The length of the procedure depends on the extent of correction and combination with other treatments but on average takes 30 minutes to complete. You will likely see the results of your injections immediately after the procedure however depending on the filler used further enhancement or correction may follow over the subsequent months.

 

Written procedure specific information sheets will be given to you in order for you to prepare for your treatment. Occasionally some patients may experience some minor welling and possible bruising at the injection site. The period of swelling depends on the type of filler used and the location but will generally have settled within 24-48 hours. You will be able to resume your normal daily activities following the treatment. The results of dermal fillers vary in duration and may require regular treatments in order to maintain the desired degree of facial rejuvenation.
