Get the benefits of a facelift without going ‘under the knife’

In the world of appearance medicine, dermal fillers can work miracles on the face and neck. In one simple procedure, you can restore lost facial volume, defy lines and create a more balanced and symmetrical appearance.

At Vein and Skin Clinic, dermal fillers are one of the most popular treatments undergone by their patients and the results are consistently outstanding.  This is because the Vein and Skin Clinic is a registered medical clinic offering advanced levels of skill and an expert knowledge of using the best products on an individual patient basis.

Vein and Skin Clinic use a range of highly reputable dermal filler brands. These include the Hyaluronic Acid fillers, Restylane and Teosyl, as well as a Poly-L-Lactic acid filler, Sculptra. Safe and extremely effective, these dermal fillers have been approved by the New Zealand Society of Cosmetic Medicine (NZSCM) and work wonders for skin enhancements.

The gel-like injectable liquids act quickly to create a soft and more youthful appearance to the skin while stimulating your own collagen production to hydrate and volumise. As the procedure is straightforward, you will see results immediately and can go about your day as normal once you leave the clinic.

Another popular product is PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma), where your own blood is used to revitalize damaged skin and reduce fine lines and improve skin texture.

Defy the signs of aging without resorting to drastic measures

​As we age, our skin loses its volume as our collagen stores naturally deplete. With that, we begin to notice fine lines, wrinkles and sagging of the skin.

When the signs of aging bother us, the term ‘facelift’ can go over and over in our head. But this is a drastic measure that requires a lot of downtime.

Dermal fillers can be a brilliant alternative to a surgical facelift and really should be trialled initially before any surgical intervention.

Whatever the area of concern, dermal fillers can target specific regions of the face that need some attention. When it comes to defying the signs of aging, dermal fillers are true heroes, achieving the following results with ease:

  • Smooth out wrinkles on face and neck
  • Add volume to hollow areas under eyes and temples
  • Plump up your cheek bones
  • Create fuller lips
  • Lift saggy areas

Treatments can be long-lasting, but once you notice the results softening, pop in to Vein and Skin Clinic for a quick top-up.

What is the difference between Dermal Fillers?

Our Restylane and Teosyl dermal fillers are largely made up of Hyaluronic Acid (HA). We are born with plentiful amounts of HA but over time, our natural stores deplete. As a result, we are left with facial creases that change our once youthful appearance.

Restylane and Teosyl boost the HA in your skin to give targeted areas the volume it needs to appear firm once again. The HA fillers last anywhere from six to 18 months.

Our Sculptra dermal filler use Poly-L-Lactic Acid (PLLA), a synthetic lactic acid. Lactic acid is naturally-occurring substance in our body, made by our muscles after exercise.

Sculptra is effective for a longer period of time than HA fillers, but results are not immediate, lasting anywhere between 2-3 years. However, this PLLA filler gives a more intense volume replacement than Restylane or Teosyl so is more commonly used for more severe wrinkles and folds and volume loss.

PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma) uses your own blood – that is centrifuged and converted to a plasma, rich in growth factors and injected into targeted areas.  This encourages tissue regeneration and repair. It is excellent for crepey, delicate skin, viz: eyelids, under and around eyes, hands and neck.

To decide which filler will work best on your area of concern, book a consultation with one of the Doctors or highly experienced cosmetic nurses at Vein and Skin Clinic.

Are dermal fillers right for me?

If you’ve been bothered by the signs of aging, or you would simply like fuller lips or cheeks, dermal fillers are a great choice for you.

As a quick procedure with minimal discomfort, the benefits of dermal fillers far outweigh the more drastic path of undergoing a surgical facelift. Dermal fillers allow you to achieve the results of a facelift without the downtime.

The team at Vein and Skin Clinic will carefully assess your appearance at your consultation before preparing a treatment plan for you. In the consultation phase, your Doctor or cosmetic nurse will take into account your entire facial structure to fix asymmetries and prevent irregularities.

Dermal fillers rejuvenate the skin and produce natural results. If you would like to enhance your appearance without going ‘under the knife’, call Vein and Skin Clinic today and discuss dermal fillers with one of our highly-experienced Doctors and cosmetic nurses.
