Dermal filler for softening lines and wrinkles, and enhancing lips
Dermal filler is an injectable gel made from hyaluronic acid - a naturally occurring substance in your skin. Dermal filler is used to restore volume to the skin and smooth away lines and wrinkles. Dermal filler is also used for lip enhancement.
Dermal filler helps to instantly restore your skin's volume and smooth away facial wrinkles and folds, like your 'smile lines' or 'parentheses'. These are also known as your nasolabial folds - the creases that run from the bottom of your nose to the corners of your mouth.
What is Juvederm®?
At Caci, we use a smooth dermal filler called Juvederm®. It contains a local anaesthetic that provides more comfort both during and after injection.
What does dermal filler treatment involve?
After your complimentary consultation with a Caci Treatment Coordinator, you will be booked in for an appointment to be treated. A Registered Cosmetic Nurse eases the dermal filler gel into your skin using a fine needle. The injection process is quick, and only takes between 10-15 minutes. Results typically last from 12 - 24 months, with individual results varying.
How is dermal filler different from Botox®?
Dermal filler is an injectable gel that provides volume and is used to treat wrinkles and folds resulting from a loss in volume beneath the surface of the skin, such as perioral lines and nasolabial folds (lines around your mouth and nose). Dermal filler is also used for lip enhancement. Botox® is not a filler. Botox® relaxes muscle activity and is used to treat moderate to severe lines caused by repeated facial expressions.
What does dermal filler look like?
Dermal filler's do vary in smoothness. The dermal filler we use here at Caci is called Juvederm®, and as you can see from the image below, is a much smoother gel than others on the market. We prefer this filler over others due to the smoothness and results it provides.
