Re-Contouring Hyaluronic Fillers by Restylane®, Juvederm®, EsthelesTM and Teosyal®
Smoothing wrinkles and folds or giving your lips a more sensuous and fuller form is a beautiful path to increase your sense of well-being, and it requires no foreign material. Restylane®, Juvederm®, EsthelesTM and Teosyal® create shape with hyaluronic acid, a natural material in the body that binds with water in your skin to give new firmness.
Fillers are gels of hyaluronic acid that are injected into the skin with a very fine needle. This treatment works by producing volume under the wrinkle, which is lifted and smoothed out, adding shape to the treated area. In addition, as no pre-test is needed, the treatment can be carried out immediately and generally takes 30 minutes depending on the correction you wish to have performed.
What areas can be treated?
The most common areas are the glabellar lines between the eyebrows, the nasolabial folds from the root of the nose to the angle of the mouth, the lips, and other sites can be treated as well. Very superficial or very deep wrinkles may be difficult to correct. Please consult our doctors for an assessment.
What will I look like after the treatment?
You can expect slight redness, swelling and tenderness or an itching sensation at the treated area, and any discomfort generally disappears in a few days. After a lip treatment, the lips may be swollen or uneven for up to a week.
How soon will I see the results?
The results can be seen immediately.
What should I bear in mind after my treatment?
For 48 hours after treatment, we recommend refraining from any other facial treatments or rubbing on the treated area. If you have had a lip enhancement, avoid puckering your lips for the first 2 days. Until the initial swelling and redness have disappeared, do not expose the treated area to extreme cold or intense heat such as in a solarium or sunbathing.
Can hyaluronic fillers be removed?
No, but they dissolve naturally over time. If you feel uncertain about the desired result, you can have the treatment in steps on different occasions.
Does it hurt?
Most people find the injections relatively painless, but a topical anaesthetic can be applied to the area being treated. When enhancing the lips, a local anaesthetic injection is often given.
