Questions & Answers
What are dermal fillers?
A dermal filler is a smooth consistency gel made of hyaluronic acid—a naturally occurring substance in your skin that helps to add volume and hydration. It is injected into the skin to plump it up, make it firmer and smooth out lines and wrinkles.
Which dermal fillers does Dr Rose use?
There are many types of dermal fillers on the market these days but Dr Rose only uses well established brands (with proven clinical data to support use and safety) synthetically produced non-animal products consisting of hyaluronic acid which is a natural chemical constituent of the skin.
Brands include Juvederm Ultra, Teosyal and Restylane
Are dermal fillers safe?
The dermal fillers Dr Rose uses are extremely safe, however you can expect some degree of redness and swelling after the treatment, which usually clears up within 1-2 days. Dr Rose will discuss this with you during your consultation.
Does it hurt?
Dr Rose will apply a local anesthetic to the area that is going to be treated so any discomfort is minimal. Some dermal fillers also contain small amounts of local anaesthetic within the product itself.
How are dermal fillers applied?
Dermal fillers are injected into lines and wrinkles to plump them out or into areas of volume loss to sculpt and volumise. The dermal filler then remains in the skin, where it binds water to produce a lift and give firmness to the treated area.
How long does the treatment take?
A dermal filler treatment usually takes around 30 minutes.
How long do dermal fillers last?
Typically, the results of dermal fillers can last three to nine months but this varies from one person to another and also depends on the area treated. The filler is gradually broken down and absorbed by the body, so the lines, wrinkles or lips will ultimately return to their previous appearance without top up treatments to maintain the desired effects.
