This group of treatments fill areas of actual volume loss. As we age, our skin's elasticity decreases and changes to the facial shape occur. This may manifest as lines between the nose and mouth, ‘sad lines’ at the mouth corners and possibly a reduction of lip volume. Stubborn upper facial lines that have not received optimal results with muscle relaxing therapies can also benefit from fillers. There are a multitude of dermal filler products on the market, such as Restylane®, Juvederm®, Teosyal® and Belotero® to name a few. Each has slightly different indications, and many now come mixed with an anaesthetic to minimise any discomfort. Dr Ferguson can discuss the fillers that best suit your requirements during a consultation. Treatments can last from six to twelve months.
