Non-Surgical Techniques

Non surgical facial rejuvination uses a variety of techniques to give the desired improvement in appearance.

“Injectable fillers” can used to correct small defects such as wrinkles or used in larger amounts to create an increase in volume in areas such as the lips, cheeks or the whole face. Filler can be non permanent or permanent.

Non permanent fillers last for a variable length of time depending on the product and can last from 3 months to around 24 months. The filler are made from a variety of compounds such as hyaluronic acid (Restylane®), collagen (Zydrerm®) and polyglycolic acid (Sculptura®).

Permanent fillers do not dissolve and can be very difficult to remove. Fat is the commonest permanent filler used in this practise.
