Dermal Filler Treatments

What is the treatment?

It is an injectable gel that should always be administered by a trained, medically qualified practitioner. It enhances your natural looks by restoring your skin’s volume, creating softness and revitalizing your appearance.

How does it work?

It is a crystal-clear gel produced biotechnologically using stabilized, non-animal hyaluronic acid and water. The hyaluronic acid is a tissue-friendly substance closely resembling the hyaluronic acid that occurs naturally in the body. By replenishing nature’s supply of hyaluronic acid, it revitalizes and plumps up the skin, instantly diminishing the appearance of lines and giving a softer look.

What does the treatment involve?

It is injected into the skin in small amounts using a very fine needle. The gel provides hydration and structure and gives natural volume to smooth away the appearance of lines, enhance facial shape, or create fuller lips. The treatment is very quick and often takes less than 30 minutes. The treatment benefits can normally be seen instantly and does not affect facial expression. No skin test is required because it does not contain any animal-derived ingredients.

What areas can be treated?

The treatments can be used to smooth out facial lines, create fuller lips and shape facial contours, such as cheeks and chin. It is a subtle approach to enhancing looks naturally.

The most common areas treated are:

Upper face : Glabellar lines, Eyebrow, Forehead

Middle face: Tear trough, Periorbital lines, Cheek augmentation, Nose, Nasal bridges, Earlobes

Lower face: Nasolabial folds, Perioral lines, Marionette lines, Smile lines, Lip enhancement, Chin and jaw line augmentation

Skin rejuvenation: Face , Neck• Décolletage, Hands, Upper arms

Does the treatment hurt?

Some people may experience the treatment as a mild discomfort. A local anaesthetic cream is often used. Another form of anaesthesia, a dental block, can be used to numb the area when enhancing lips. However, Q-Med recently released a selection of dermal fillers with a built-in anaesthetic to ensure more comfort for the patient.

How long does the treatment effect last?

One of the great advantages is that the effects are long lasting but not permanent. You are always in control of your looks. Duration depends on many factors, such as skin type, lifestyle, age, the degree of perfection demanded by the patient and the injection technique of the practitioner.

Is there any downtime?

You can expect slight redness, swelling, pain, tenderness, itching and/or bruising following the treatment. This is the same as you might expect with any type of injection. However, the discomfort is temporary and generally disappears after a few days. With lip enhancement, it is wise to choose your treatment time with care since your lips may become swollen and appear slightly uneven for a few days.

Are there any risks?

More than 6 million treatments have been carried out since the launch in 1996. Some common injection-related reactions might occur after an injection; they typically resolve spontaneously within one or two days after injection. These reactions include redness, swelling, pain, itching, bruising or tenderness at the injection site. Inflammatory reactions may last for up to two weeks in rare cases. After a lip enhancement, your lips may be swollen for several days.

Are there any side effects?

Most people can benefit from the treatment.
 Should not be used in or near skin sites where there are or have been active skin disease, inflammation or related conditions. Nor should it be injected into an area where a permanent implant has been placed. The treatment has not been tested on pregnant or breast-feeding women.
