Dermal filler treatments
Dermal fillers treatments are used to soften and contour lines, folds, and wrinkles. Unwanted folds and wrinkles can be “plumped up” to reduce their appearance, resulting in a smoother, more youthful looking skin.
Dermal fillers treatments are particularly suitable for the lower face. The naso-labial lines (between the nose and mouth), Marionette lines (around the mouth), smile lines on the cheeks and chin indentations can all be treated.
Dermal fillers treatments are also effective at returning the lips to a younger and more sensual look. Over time lips gradually become thinner and smaller and can develop fine lines around their borders. Dermal fillers can enhance thin lips, create a more defined lip border and lift the corners of the mouth.
The most commonly used dermal fillers are Hyaluronic acid based. Hyaluronic acid occurs naturally in humans. In its treatment form it is a gel-like solution which is injected into the skin
The effects of Dermal fillers treatments usually last for 6-12 months. Most clients have top-ups when they feel the effect is starting to diminish i.e. any time between 6 and 12 months. With repeated treatments the effects often last longer. If you choose not to have the treatment repeated the correction of the wrinkles and the enhanced lip effect will gradually become less noticeable until your skin looks like it did before the treatment.
After consultation with an Oris doctor, a personalized treatment can be decided upon, suitable for your individual needs.
What does the treatment involve?
All Oris Medical treatments follow a detailed pre-treatment consultation. At this consultation you will discuss with the doctor the look you wish to achieve. Your Oris doctor will advise you which treatments will be most effective at helping you reach this. If you decide to proceed the doctor will make a detailed recording of your medical history and conduct a careful examination of your face.
Following this, the doctor will explain which dermal filler option is best for your requirements and how you can expect to look afterwards.
The dermal filler is gently injected into specific areas of your skin to reduce the depth of the skin crease. Your Oris doctor will customise the exact depth and number of injections to give you the most natural result. Different dermal fillers can be used in different areas of your face to produce the most effective result.
The procedure takes about 15-30 minutes and the results are immediately visible. Clients can continue with their normal day after treatment.
You should leave the treated area alone for 48 hours to let it settle. We advise that you do not have a facial or similar treatment that may disturb the products or expose the newly-treated areas to strong sunlight for 2-3 days.
In the days after the treatment there may be some redness and minimal swelling, which normally settles in 1-2 days. Very occasionally patients can suffer some bruising at the injection site.
Your Oris doctor will arrange to see you for a review of your treatment two weeks later.
