Dermal fillers by Dr Michelle

Dermal fillers are used to smoothen wrinkles and create more defined contours. With age, our skin succumbs to wrinkles and sagging as a result of many years of muscle use and sun exposure. The breakdown of tissue of the skin can however be treated with dermal fillers.

How does this work?

Hyaluronic acid is a natural Collagen stimulating molecule that is injected into the skin to fill up lines and add volume to affected areas. This rejuvenating treatment can be used to eliminate wrinkles, raising scar depressions, enhance lips and replace soft-tissue through facial injections.

We offer the following treatments:

Restylane Facial Filler: A non-animal, biodegradable gel composed of hyaluronic acid, Restylane is a soft tissue dermal filler that adds volume to the skin through tiny injections; smoothing facial folds and wrinkles in areas around the mouth and eyes.

Juvederm® Facial Filler: Made of a hyaluronic acid gel, Juvederm® is a naturally-occurring substance in the skin that contributes to volume and hydration. Juvederm® is designed to temporarily correct moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds. Juvederm® is made by Allergan, the same makers of anti-wrinkle injections®.

FAQ

It is more than enhancing beauty –

What is the difference between Anti-wrinkle injections® and Filler treatments?

Anti-wrinkle injections® is mainly used to treat dynamic lines caused by constant movement of muscles (wrinkles), where Fillers is typically used to add volume and restore a youthful appearance.

Dr Michelle van Zyl

How often do I have to get Anti-wrinkle injections® or Filler injections?

This is also dependent on the patient. The injected solutions will be broken down by your body over time and therefore they will need to be refreshed. Generally, Fillers can last between 12-24 months and anti-wrinkle injections® between 3 – 6 months.

Do the injections hurt?

For anti-wrinkle injections® a small needle is used and the treatment is very quick. Patients usually find this pain-free. The Fillers used by Dr Michelle contains Lidocaine, a local anaesthetic, to reduce discomfort. Furthermore a numbing lotion is applied before treatments and patients are provided with ice-packs for after-care.

Dr Michelle van Zyl

How much does it cost?

The cost is dependent on the amount of anti-wrinkle injections® or Filler that a patient needs. The requirements will be established and discussed during a comprehensive assessment in our initial consultation.

Dr Michelle van Zyl

Is there something I need to do for preparation before the treatments?

Do not drink any alcohol or blood thinning medication within 24 hours before the treatments. This includes Asprin, anti-inflammatories, Omega fish oil supplementation, high doses Vitamin E. Please inform Dr. Michelle if you are on any medication.
