Facial Fillers

What is facial filler?

Has the skin on your face lost its firmness and fullness? Do you have deep wrinkles? Or a facial scar? If so, a facial filler treatment at Revitalize may be the perfect solution.

Facial fillers (also known as dermal fillers) use a natural gel to smooth out wrinkles, folds or scars to give your face a younger, refreshed more plumped appearance. If the skin on your face has lost its firmness or fullness, a facial filler treatment may be the perfect solution.

Dermal filler is a naturally-occurring hyaluronic acid gel that is injected into the face to smooth wrinkles and folds (especially around the nose and mouth area). It is also used to plump out scars or dents in the face and to define and enhance lips, reshape the nose, or define and plump out cheeks.

Frequently Asked Questions

How does it work?

Injectable filler gel adds volume to the skin, plumping it out and giving the appearance of a smoother surface. Its also great at smoothing out moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds. This treatment is generally used on the lower face for lines around the nose and mouth or lines around the lips (often called ‘smoker’s lines’). It can also be used to improve the appearance of scars or dents on the face.

What will it involve?

Your Medical Practitioner will inject small quantities of filler into the areas where you have lines/deeper wrinkles or indents to smooth them out and given them a softer, flatter and  more even appearance. At Revitalize we use a wide range of the leading facial fillers available on the market depending on the area to be treated, all of which come with a local anaesthetic which makes the process relatively painless. The treatment itself should take approximately 20 minutes and the effects are instant.

What is the result?

Smoothes out lines, wrinkles and scars as well as plumping the skin, producing an instant effect that will leave your face feeling fresher and looking more youthful than ever before. Most patients require only one treatment and the results range from around 9 months to 1 year.

How can a facial filler treatment help me?

Dermal fillers can reduce the visibility of wrinkles, creases and lines around the following areas:

  • Forehead
  • Nose
  • Mouth
  • Cheeks

Are dermal fillers safe?

Yes, as long as they are administered by a medical professional. The hyaluronic gel is completely natural, and over time, the filler will slowly dissolve, causing no harm to you.

What are the possible side effects?

Most side effects are mild and temporary e.g. redness, pain, swelling.

Cautions / contraindications

You should not have fillers if you have severe allergies, are pregnant or breastfeeding.
