Dermal fillers

Dermal fillers are an injectable gel that add volume to your skin and lips. The dermal fillers used at CSC are made from a natural complex sugar found within tissues of living cells, including the skin. The filler helps to keep the skin hydrated by attracting and holding water. It also combines with collagen and elastin, contributing to skin structure and elasticity

As you age your skin loses volume and elasticity because natural substances such as collagen, elastin and hyaluronic acid decrease. Gradual loss of volume supporting the skin causes our face to change its contours over the years, making us look tired and older than we feel. Dermal fillers, a form of cosmetic medicine, are placed below the skin’s surface to “fill in” or “plump up” these facial wrinkles and folds.

Areas that can be treated with dermal fillers

  • Brow and temporal area to create a brow lift
  • Tear troughs and orbital rims to reduce a tired look and the appearance of dark circles
  • Cheek definition to create a more youthful appearance
  • Naso labial folds (the crease that runs from the corner of the nose to the corner of the lip)
  • Lip Volume and border definition
  • Lip lines, smoker’s lines
  • Accordion lines
  • Smile lines
  • Marrionette lines and “mouth frown”
  • Jaw line to reduce the appearance of jowls and create a more defined jaw line
  • Chin lines
  • Hands

You can expect an instant, natural looking and long lasting results.

A full facial assessment will be conducted by one of our experienced Cosmetic Nurses to analyse areas of your face that have undergone change over time. We will then develop a treatment plan designed to suit your needs and budget.

Lip treatment

Over time the lips naturally lose volume, this can create a flattening of the upper lip, drooping at the corners of the mouth (mouth frown), vertical lip lines or just overall loss of volume. Dermal fillers are used to enhance or rejuvenate the lips and surrounding lip area. This treatment can increase volume to create a softer, fuller lip, enhance definition and shape and also increase hydration. Addressing deficits in the surrounding area is important to enhancing the lip area and gives a more youthful looking lip

Hands

Ageing hands can be rejuvenated using a combination of treatments. Dermal fillers are used to reduce the appearance of veins and ligaments which become more prominent as we age. The fillers improve the texture of the skin and used in combination with laser to reduce the pigment changes caused by sun damage you can dramatically improve the appearance of your hands

Neck

A combination of treatments can be used to treat your ageing neck. Fillers reduce the appearance of “necklace lines”. Laser therapy including Limelight, Laser Genesis and Titan can be used in combination to treat sun damage and to stimulate collagen and elastin. Anti-wrinkle injections can be used to treat the platysmal bands that run vertically from your jaw line to your chest

Decolletage

This area can also be rejuvenated using a combination of therapies which include laser treatment, IPL and dermal fillers. Sun damage is the main cause of ageing in this area, which presents as thinning, crepe skin, pigment changes, redness and vertical lines
