What are dermal fillers?
Heber Davis specialises in the injection of “natural” dermal fillers which are smooth gels that are structurally identical to the padding that occurs naturally in our skin. As skin ages, this padding gradually breaks down, resulting in skin sag, wrinkles and a loss of volume. Dermal fillers simply replace what has been lost, naturally and instantly, leaving you looking refreshed and more attractive.
Because these dermal fillers are natural gels, they are biocompatible, non permanent, rarely cause reactions and can be easily dissolved if required.
Who’s a candidate for non-surgical brow lifting?
Non-surgical brow lifting’s suitable for anyone whose brows are starting to sag, who want more defined and symmetrical eyebrows or tighter skin in the eyebrow area, as well as those who are not ready for surgery, or who only need a slight brow elevation. For such candidates, dermal fillers offer an ideal, simple solution that delivers subtle but noticeable results.
How do dermal fillers create a brow lift, without surgery?
Small amounts of dermal filler, strategically placed, deliver just enough additional volume and support beneath the brows to lift them, subtly, instantly, and without downtime. The slightly higher arch looks natural and helps to open up the eyes, creating the pleasantly understated impression of a younger, more refreshed appearance.
In addition, muscle relaxant injections can be used simultaneously to create additional “lift.” Unlike fillers, muscle relaxants work not by adding volume and support, but by relaxing the muscles that depress the brow (these can be demonstrated by winking), allowing the brow elevating muscles to work unopposed. The net result is an attractive, but still subtle and pleasing, lift. In the same way, the center of the brow, near the nose, can also be raised or lowered to enhance the shape.
Does it hurt?
This is a very minor procedure that is usually very well tolerated. However, for those who are sensitive, light sedation and/or laughing gas are available.
How long will my result last?
Fillers usually last well in this area. Results can be expected to last for a year or more.
How do I look after treatment?
This is a minor treatment that is usually well tolerated and requires no downtime.
Non-surgical brow lifting is economical because only very small amounts of filler are required. Talk to your practitioner at your next visit about ways to enhance your brow.
