Dermal FillerS

Dermal filler is a non- invasive substance that is used to restore, enhance and replace volume to areas of the face where volume has been lost in the skin.  As we age the skin loses its natural hydration and elasticity. This causes a loss in volume, sagging of the skin and wrinkles. 

Dermal fillers are now a popular treatment for facial rejuvenation and can be used to plump and volumise the lips, enhance cheekbones, improve the contouring of the nose , and in some cases restore volume to areas which are affected by the appearance of scars. 

Dermal fillers can be used as a stand alone treatment or in combination with anti-wrinkle injections for an instant greater result. 

Dermal fillers are safe, simple and effective with a minimal amount of discomfort and downtime. 

All dermal fillers at Essential Aesthetics are administered by a trained certified physician or registered nurse. All questions regarding dermal fillers and its use can be discussed at length at your consultation. We look forward to hearing from you at Essential Aesthetics.

Anti- wrinkle injections

Anti- wrinkle injections may be your answer with treatments being safe, fast, effective and simple. Anti- wrinkle injections cause minimal to no discomfort leaving you feeling fresher and younger for longer. 


What causes wrinkles?

Wrinkles are a natural part of the ageing process. As we get older our skin appears thinner, drier and decreases is ability to protect itself from damage, including sun exposure, smoking, drinking, other lifestyle factors and use of facial expressions over time. 

In our youth the body produces natural cells called collagen and elastin that help maintain our skins suppleness. As we age the amount of collagen and elastin decreases, this resulting in wrinkles.  


How do anti-wrinkle injections work?

Anti- wrinkle injections are composed of a purified protein that target the muscle, causing it to relax. When the product is injected into the targeted area it communicates with the nerve that controls the movement of the muscle causing it to relax and prevent it from contacting, causing the appearance of wrinkles in the skin to reduce or disappear. 

Targeted areas for treatment include:

  • Frown lines
  • Crow’s feet
  • Forehead Lines
  • Non-surgical brow lift
  • Gummy Smile
  • Bunny Lines
