DERMAL FILLER INJECTIONS
WHAT ARE DERMAL FILLER INJECTIONS?
There are a variety of dermal fillers available on the market. At Kat & Co Aesthetics we use fillers made from hyaluronic acid (HA) because of its hypoallergenic property. Hyaluronic acid exists naturally in the body and is an important component of the skin and serve important functions in creating volume in the tissue and maintaining water balance. HA fillers are also safer as they are reversible.
We only use market-leading established brands of dermal fillers with the highest quality and best safety profile.
A range of HA fillers are available for different treatment areas. Within each filler range there are specific products for fine lines, deeper facial lines, the lips and general improvement of skin tone and firmness.
We pay special attention to pain control to ensure that the procedures are comfortable and non-traumatic. Topical numbing cream is used when needed to keep discomfort to the minimum.
Typically, patients are reviewed two weeks after the treatment and the results are discussed.
