Facial Contour Filler Injection

3

What are Dermal Fillers?
Fillers are soft gel-like substances (non-animal hyaluronic acid) injected safely into different areas of the face. They are mainly used to contour one’s facial area to enhance their projection. It also minimizes fine lines and wrinkles by filling up facial depressions or lines beneath the skin. Fillers also help individuals to revitalise the skin to regain a firmer and youthful appearance by restoring skin volume giving the desired effect of enhancing facial features to create a more beautiful look. As we grow older, our skin ages and starts to lose the ability to stimulate collagen, elastin and hyaluronic acid. This leads to loss of volume and sagging skin. DrDAesthetics carries a wide range of HSA approved hyaluronic acid fillers such as Juvederm, Restylane. Emervel, Teosyal, Belotero, and Revanesse.

3RD GENERATION ULTRACEL Q+ HIFU – Non-Surgical/Non-Invasive Face Lifting  

As part of aging, our skin and tissue lose its collagen resulting in Skin Laxity (Face Sagging). How do our face generate new collagen?

What is ULTRAcel Q+?
ULTRAcel Q+ is one of the advanced 3rd generation HIFU (High Intensity focused Ultrasound) non-invasive treatment for firming, tightening and lifting skin and deeper tissue(SMAS layer).

How does ULTRAcel Q+ work?

Ultrasound therapy (HIFU) shoots ultrasound waves into the skin, where they act by heating targeted tissue, tightening SMAS and stimulating the body’s natural collagen production. While there is a noticeable instant tightening, once the body starts producing collagen, the skin tightens and firms significantly.

It’s a precise tightening treatment for the skin and deeper tissues (SMAS) The body’s natural healing and collagen regeneration process produces a new, healthy and tighter appearance of the face, neck and décolleté.
