Hyaluronic Acid Dermal Filler Injection is one of our most popular anti-ageing treatments at A.R.T.
As our skin ages, the dermis gradually loses its major constituents: collagen, elastin and hyaluronic acid. All these elements are essential to maintain a younger looking skin: Collagen acts as the major support protein for our skin, while elastin allows our skin to stay firm and resist wrinkles. Meanwhile, hyaluronic acid helps to trap water and add volume and shape to our skin. Dermal fillers is becoming more and more popular to help reverse the changes associated with aging. Because the goal is to return the dermis to its original youthful state, dermal fillers can give a more natural appearance than surgical face lifts. Therefore, dermal filler treatments can reduce or eliminate wrinkles, raise scar depressions, enhance lips, and replace soft-tissue volume loss.
What does the procedure entail?
Injection of fillers usually requires the use of either a topical numbing cream or a local injection of numbing medication. Then, using a small needle, the dermal filler is injected into each wrinkle or scar that requires treatment. Some mild burning and stinging is normal after the treatment and usually quickly resolves.The results can last from three months to five years, depending on the filler being use.
Side effects of the treatment are uncommon. But occasionally some patients will experience following conditions: limited allergic reactions (hypersensitivity), ulceration, reactivation of herpes infection, bacterial infection, localised bruising, and granuloma formation.

Nasolabial folds are commonly known as smile lines or laugh lines. They are the unattractive lines that run from the side of your nose to the corner of your mouth and are typically one of the first signs of aging. Some individuals consider these facial features as a sign of maturity and distinction, while others are bothered by this visible sign of aging.
Nasolabial folds are created naturally when the facial muscles are used to laugh or smile. Adults of any age will have natural smile lines or nasolabial folds and there is no way to prevent them from occurring. Some of the causes for nasolabial folds are that as we age the facial skin loses elasticity and begins to sag. Also, with the loss of elasticity, the natural fat pad in the upper part of the cheek begins to droop as it weakens in the area of the lower eyelid intensifying nasolabial folds.
We can use fillers to dramatically reduce the appearance of these lines; this is a very popular treatment here and usually lasts from 6 to 9 months.
