Dermal filler treatments
Dermal fillers (aka soft tissue fillers) are more than mere wrinkle fillers: they can plump lips, smooth creases and folds, and fill in the under-eye hollows known as tear troughs. They can also add volume to cheeks and temples, reduce the appearance of pitted acne scars, sculpt the jawline, and add projection to a weak chin. Some people even choose to get a nonsurgical nose job using injectable fillers.
For patients who are seeing the early stages of age-related volume loss, a combination approach using fillers and a neuromodulator like Botox can restore a more youthful appearance, possibly delaying the need for more severe interventions.
Hyaluronic acid is the most popular FDA-approved facial filler ingredient because it's so easy to dissolve in the event of a complication or change of heart. Fillers can also be made of calcium hydroxylapatite (Radiesse), poly-L-lactic acid (Sculptra), or nonabsorbable polymethyl methacrylate microspheres (PMMA or Bellafill)- Albeit at The Clinic By La Ross we only offer Hyaluronic Acid (NON PERMANENT) dermal fillers and ONLY use The Teoxane range due to their evidence based approach and innovation.
Dermal fillers can carry risks and these can range from minor to severe so IT IS ESSENTIAL to have a full consultation with our clinical team before any procedures can be carried out- this is essential.
We also have Clarius ultrasound technology to pre scan treatments for safety, speak to the team about this.
