Dermal Fillers Nose to Mouth Lines

Dermal fillers can be used to smooth out folds and wrinkles between the nose and mouth to give a more relaxed and youthful appearance.

It is simple and straight-forward, involving a few tiny injections directly into the skin, and takes only 15-30 minutes. Make-up can be applied immediately after the procedure and you can go straight back to work. Result can be seen immediately, and treatment lasts about 9-12 months. Optimal results can be maintained over a long period of time through regular repeated treatments.

The procedure varies from person to person depending on your requirements and the severity of the nose to mouth lines that are being treated, in addition to the particular dermal filler being administered.

Nose and mouth FAQ

What are dermal fillers?

Dermal fillers are substances/gels injected beneath the skin’s surface to smooth wrinkles and add volume. The products are composed of stabilised hyaluronic acid which occurs naturally in the cells of the skin. It works by drawing in water and therefore augmenting the skin, thus reducing the wrinkle treated. It is by no means permanent and is totally biodegradable.

Are dermal fillers safe?

Yes. We use only natural products, thus eliminating the risk of eliciting allergic reactions. Even people with food sensitivities can receive these fillers safely. The products we use have been used as an injectable beauty treatment for more than two decades with an excellent safety record.

What brands of dermal fillers do you offer?

We use the newest, most advanced non-animal based form of hyaluronic acid dermal filler on the market today – Juvederm, Restylane and Teosyal.

Are there any side effects?

Today’s dermal fillers have come a long way since the first-generation of collagen injections. Advanced injection techniques, coupled with the use of micro-cannula (blunt needle) and improved product safety means that significant side effects are extremely uncommon but may include:

• Injection-related reactions: these reactions may include redness at the injection site immediately after the treatment.

• Bruising: occasionally bruising can occur. However the use of micro-cannula (blunt needle) dramatically reduces the risk of bruising.

• Contour irregularities can and do occasionally occur. Massaging can usually smooth out any ‘lumpiness’ however if persistent the filler can be easily and rapidly dissolved.

• Infection – as with all injections, this procedure carries a risk of infection. The syringe is sterile and standard precautions associated with injectable materials are taken.

After care instructions?

• After your treatment we will again go through with you any after care advice in order to maximise your treatment benefits and avoid any undesirable side effects.

• You can resume normal activities, drive yourself home or return to work immediately after the treatment.

• As with any type of injection there may be some slight redness immediately afterwards. Camouflage make up may be applied.

• The results directly after the treatment should therefore not be seen as the final results. This is because over the following 2 weeks the results will gradually improve.

• For 2 weeks after the treatment you are advised to avoid extreme heat (sun bed or sunbathing) or intense cold.

Follow-up and future appointments?

One of the great advantages of the dermal fillers used at Essence Medical Cosmetic Clinic is that the effects are long lasting but not permanent. You are always in control of your looks-you can continue or change the treatment you have had or repeat the procedure as often as you like. Routine review appointments are generally not required, however occasionally touch up procedures may be carried out 2-4 weeks after the initial treatment in order to achieve optimal correction and maximise the duration of the results (please note that additional costs may be incurred if further product is required).

Thank you Dr Bong. I honestly think I look more youthful. I was surprised when I didn’t get any bruises or swelling. You are truly an expert and very good at what you do.
