Ageing is unstoppable, resulting in changes in all structures and the skin is no exception. Multiple environmental factors can also affect skin quality. Fine lines and wrinkles develop, the natural volume is depleted, glandular activity is reduced, and the skin becomes drier.
The best solution to improve the skin aesthetics is volumenisation to create definition. Available options for this type of treatment are autologous (your own) fat, as well as synthetic agents, the most user-friendly of which is hyaluronic acid – the main ingredient in Dermal filler injections.
Dermal fillers treatment involves injecting a medically developed solution under the skin with a fine needle to enhance facial features and plump and fill lines, grooves or sunken areas. Administered correctly by a medical professional, dermal fillers can subtly smooth, soften, contour and tone the skin; restore youthful plumpness and enhance and define your features.
Dermal fillers are used to treat a range of skin concerns, including lack of volume and shallow to deep wrinkles and folds. Popular areas to add volume and fullness to include the lips, cheeks and bridge of the nose. For smoothing, adding volume, plumping lines and wrinkles, popular treatment areas include around the forehead, tear troughs, mouth (smile, marionette and lipstick lines), jawline and chin.

What is the difference between anti-ageing injections and dermal fillers?
Whilst anti-ageing injections relax the muscles and soften the skin, a dermal filler injection will fill the space where lines and wrinkles have appeared, and unlike collagen products, these fillers are free from animal products.
How do dermal fillers work?
Restylane and Juvederm maintains the shape using the bodys’ own moisture. The hyaluronic acid gradually degrades and each molecule binds to more water, over time the same volume can be maintained with less hyaluronic acid. This ability of hyaluronic acid to bind to water is what helps provide lasting results.
Is the treatment painful?
This varies from patient to patient as we all have a different threshold to pain. There may be some discomfort as the filler is injected directly into the skin. To aid with your comfort, Dr. Shahram may numb the area prior to treatment. And some of fillers already have local anaesthetic in them.
How long does a dermal filler treatment last?
Results are immediate, and generally, our dermal filler treatments last approximately 6 months, though it does vary from patient to patient.
