Dermal filler is a popular treatment for wrinkles and facial lines. Treatment by an injection of dermal filler helps to “fill out” and smooth away lines by injecting a synthetic gel into the skin. Working together with the body’s own collagen, dermal filler helps to create volume and smooth out wrinkles. Dermal filler can also enhance one’s natural beauty by augmenting specific areas such as the lips, cheeks and chin.
The choice and amount of dermal filler used depends on the site and depth of treatment and requires careful consideration by your practitioner during your consultation. At Mirabel we use the Juvéderm® range of fillers exclusively because we believe they give a better result. The treatment can be tailored to your requirements producing a natural, more youthful look.
Juvéderm® VOLITE was launched in February 2017. It is a dermal filler product that is used to improve skin quality, skin hydration and skin elasticity, with studies confirming these benefits. Juvéderm® VOLITE is different – it delivers a high degree of smoothness and elasticity to the skin, with minimum swelling after injections and longer and more natural looking results. It increases the skin density, refreshes and rejuvenates. The result of the procedure shows as an improvement of the skin texture and elasticity, and this product delivers deep and long-lasting hydration, with a tightening and lifting effect.
Juvéderm® VOLITE can be used to treat the whole face, neck, décolletage and back of hands and is particularly good a for dry or leathery skin and for fine lines around the mouth.
Dermal filler treatments take 30-45 minutes and typically involve the use of a topical anaesthetic. The filler is injected through a number of small puncture sites into the specific areas to be treated. There may be some mild redness or bruising afterwards, but this typically resolves after a few days.
