Dermal fillers

dermal fillings

Marrionette lines (mouth to chin) before and after treatment

DERMAL FILLERS from Kirkcudbright Dental Surgery can be ideal for enhancing your natural looks by restoring volume, creating softness and revitalising your appearance.

As we age skin loses volume and elasticity resulting in the development of hollows, lines and wrinkles.

Dermal Fillers are safe injectable gels which provide hydration and structure to smooth away lines, folds and wrinkles.

Dermal Fillers are made of hyaluronic acid which occurs naturally in the skin. The product is not animal in origin, it is manufactured by biosynthesis. We supply the main, well established brands such as the Juvederm® range and also newer brands such as Revanesse® which has only recently become available.

Lighter dermal fillers are used for more superficial lines, the heavier fillers are used for deeper lines and folds.

Cheeks and Cheekbones

Non- surgical cheek enhancement is now available at Kirkcudbright Dental Surgery. Dermal fillers are used to improve the appearance and shape of the cheeks without the need for surgery.

As we age our skin loses volume  resulting in a changed facial contour. Cheeks become hollow and the skin can sag and wrinkle resulting in an overly aged , drawn appearance. The effects of aging are not the only reason you may seek cheek enhancement. You may be unhappy with your mid face shape, or would like to correct flat, unattractive cheeks and improve the overall balance of your face shape.

Whatever your reasons, cheek enhancement with dermal fillers can achieve significant improvement without the risks and costs associated with surgery.

We use Juvederm Voluma® or ReDexis® dermal fillers for cheek enhancement. The aims of cheek enhancement are to improve size, shape, profile, projection and symmetry of the cheeks. An initial consultation will determine your desired outcome.

Treatment takes about  15-20 minutes. Dermal filler is injected with a very fine needle, following application of pain-relieving cream. You should experience minimal discomfort during treatment, with only transient redness, swelling or tenderness for 4-5 days after treatment. Any mild bruising should resolve within a week. You will notice an immediate improvement in your facial contour with the effects lasting from 12 to 18 months. Maintenance treatments are required every 12-18 months to maintain your desired facial shape.
