Fillers are injected directly into the dermal layers of the skin causing a diminuation of lines, wrinkles and scars. It lasts up to one year, depending on the area being treated, the depth of the lines, the condition of the skin and the lifestyle of the individual. Most people return at 6-9 month intervals.
Restylane™ is the most exciting non-surgical advancement in facial rejuvenation today. While there are numerous injectable fillers on the market today, many of them have their drawbacks ranging from allergic reactions to short life spans. Restylane™ is safe and natural. Restylane™ applications include wrinkle correction, lip augmentation and enhancement, correcting nasolabial folds and tear trough deformities, shaping the cheeks and mouth for facial contour.

What is Juvéderm® VOLUMA®?
Juvéderm® VOLUMA® is injectable hyaluronic acid filler that provides long-lasting restoration for facial volumes through injection. The results are immediate, even, and very natural looking. Juvéderm®VOLUMA® restores youthful volume to cheeks, cheekbones, and chin that have become hollow or thin due to weight loss or age-related facial fat loss. It can also rejuvenate the effects of a sagging facelift.
What exactly is hyaluronic acid?
Hyaluronic acid (HA) is a naturally occurring substance found in the body that helps to hydrate and add volume to our skin. Natural hyaluronic acid is broken down by the body in one or two days so is constantly replaced—as we age this replacement mechanism diminishes so the moisturising and plumping effects of hyaluronic acid decrease. Hyaluronic acid is used for aesthetic treatments, and has been used by doctors for injection into arthritic joints to aid movement as well as eye surgery.
At what age should I start treatment with Juvéderm® VOLUMA®?
Juvéderm® VOLUMA® is intended for use by adults. It is the ideal implant for remodelling facial volume and correcting a receding chin.
How long will the effects of treatment with Juvéderm® VOLUMA® last?
The average effect of treatment with Juvéderm® VOLUMA® lasts up to 18 months. It may sometimes be shorter or longer depending on:
Depending on the injection technique used, our nurse practitioner will be able to offer you a local anaesthetic so that you will not feel any discomfort during the treatment.
Why Juvéderm® VOLUMA® and not a wrinkle filler?
Juvéderm® VOLUMA® has been specifically developed to restore lost facial volume e.g. in the cheeks, cheekbones, and chin. While wrinkle fillers like Juvéderm® ULTRA offer excellent results when applied to fine lines and wrinkles around the mouth, nose, and eyes, Juvéderm® 4 and Juvéderm® VOLUMA®is often better suited to larger scale facial volumising. Juvéderm® VOLBELLA we recommend for lips. With our morphing tool, you can see for yourself the many benefits offered by both Juvéderm® VOLUMA® , Juvéderm® VOLBELLA and Juvéderm® ULTRA.
When can I return to work and resume my social life?
The aesthetic results are immediate and very natural looking. You can return to work and resume your social life immediately.
Are there any side effects?
Following injection, you may experience redness, slight swelling, or bruising at the injected area. Your doctor will inform you about this. These side effects will not last and can easily be covered up with your usual makeup. However, do not hesitate to inform your doctor if these reactions persist (beyond a week) or if any other side effects are observed.
What about contraindications?
These do exist. They are not specifically related to Juvéderm® VOLUMA®, but to this type of treatment. This is why it is important to tell your doctor:
You are also advised not to combine treatment with Juvéderm® VOLUMA® with laser, surface peeling, deep chemical peeling, or dermabrasion treatment during the same session.
Is there anything I should know before I have the treatment?
Do not take aspirin for at least three days before the injection session.
During the injection, risk of bruising (haematoma) and swelling will be higher for patients under anti-coagulant treatment or taking aspirin.
Are there any recommendations I should follow after treatment?
You are advised not to apply pressure to or massage the injection site during the first days following injection session. In the two weeks following treatment, we advise against prolonged exposure to temperatures under 0°C, and to sun or strong heat (UV rays, saunas, steam baths, etc).
How much does hyaluronic acid filler treatment cost?
This is entirely dependent on what anti-ageing treatment you are having done, who is doing it, and how much product is required. It is best to discuss this with a physician. Find one near you.
Who should I see if I am interested in treatment with Juvéderm® ULTRA or Juvéderm® VOLUMA®?
When seeking a physician to conduct facial volumising, it is very important to select someone who is not only medically qualified, working out of well-established premises, and able to advise you on the best course of treatment for you, but also someone who has had specific training on using facial volumising products. Restoring facial volume with hyaluronic acid (HA) gives some incredible results, but it is an advanced technique. Therefore, it is advisable to seek out a physician who is highly experienced in conducting this procedure.
Lip enhancement has become one of the most frequently chosen cosmetic treatments today.
Facial Fillers are traditionally used to fight the signs of ageing, adding volume to lines and creases for smoother, firmer and more youthful skin. However, lip fillers offer benefits from a much younger age and are popular among those in their 20's and beyond.
At a younger age fillers are used aesthetically. The fullness and shape of the lips are very important factors in the overall appearance of a person's mouth and smile. Lip fillers can be used not only to add volume to the lips, but also to develop the shape. It may be about adding balance where one lip is naturally thinner than the other, or else more of a "cupid's bow" shape. There are a number of ways in which lip enhancement can be used to sculpt an attractive shape and profile without risking the infamous "trout pout".
However, for older clients, lip fillers are used more to restore volume that has been lost, lift the mouth corners or soften lines around the mouth. This is especially the case for smokers, where fine lines and creases can become quite pronounced on and around the lip area. Fillers can be used to gently replenish the lost volume for a more youthful appearance.
Juvederm® Volbella™ is a revolutionary NEW Lip Filler from Allergan, the makers of Juvederm and Botox. It has been designed specifically for use in lip enhancement and offers a number of advantages over standard fillers when used for the lips.
As a purpose-made lip filler, the results feel particularly soft and natural for the patient. In addition, the filler can be used very effectively to create a defined shape. As with other Juvederm products, Volbella includes some lidocaine local anaesthetic, making the injection experience very comfortable even in the most delicate and sensitive lip area, which is not the case with some other fillers.
The product has been formulated to minimize swelling and recovery time, so patients can return straight back to normal activities.
However, perhaps the greatest benefit for patients is that the results last much longer than with traditional fillers – up to 12 months before the treatment needs to be repeated, making it an easy and cost-effective choice.

Filling and Smoothing Wrinkles
As we get older the skin loses its natural elasticity and we may notice first wrinkles on its surface. With time wrinkles get deeper and turn into un-aesthetic lines. As a result, the face starts to look tired, saggy and less radiant.
The STYLAGE Classic line has been specifically designed to treat all types of wrinkles. Each product is specially formulated and chosen to suit your individual needs according to your age, skin type, skin condition and wrinkle depth (size S, M or L).
STYLAGE S is most suited for patients with:

STYLAGE M is most effective for treating patients with:
STYLAGE L has specifically designed formula to treat patients with:
STYLAGE L is also very effective treatment for hand rejuvenation, to treat volume loss on the back of the hands.
Facial Volume Restoration
As we get older, the face loses its natural volume and its contour is less defined. Loss of volume is one of the most evident forms of facial ageing caused by reduced skin elasticity, diet, stress, smoking and other contributing factors. The face starts to lose its natural volume and its contours become less defined. Facial features become sharper and the oval of our face loses its shape.
STYLAGE XL and STYLAGE XXL will help achieve instant natural results that will last up to 12 months or even more, depending on your skin type, age, lifestyle, the area treated and the injection technique used for the procedure.
STYLAGE XL and STYLAGE XXL are used for the treatment of facial volume defects, restoration and creation of facial contours, cheekbone area augmentation, and treatment of a slight ptosis.
