DERMAL FILLERS | FACIAL FILLERS | WRINKLE FILLERS
Injectables such as dermal fillers are very suitable for treating fine to deep wrinkles, restore volume to the face and even augment facial structure. The type of dermal fillers we use are formulated with a hyaluronic acid base, a sugar naturally available in human skin, therefore allergic reactions are extremely rare. Dermal fillers last from 3-18 months depending on which one is used. The most advanced dermal filler used at Cocoon Medical Spa – Juvederm Ultra, Juvederm Ultra Plus and Juvederm Voluma – includes a local anaesthetic in the dermal filler which markedly reduces any pain of injection, making the whole process much more stress free. If required, a local anaesthetic block is offered to make the procedure of dermal fillers completely painless.
THE BENEFITS OF DERMAL FILLERS
Hyaluronic acid works by binding to water similar to the way a sponge absorbs liquid. Once injected, they hydrate the skin in the treated region and act as a cushion. Different formulations allow for certain products to work better for different skin areas. Smaller particle formulations are better for softer areas like lips, and the structure in larger particle sizes is best suited for deep folds like the nasolabial area (between the nose and cheek).
