JUVÉDERM dermal fillers available through Auckland’s skincare specialists Palm Clinic help people who simply have naturally thin lips and just want to achieve a fuller appearance. People find their lips thinning over time and may also see vertical lip lines become more noticeable. JUVÉDERM addresses these unique needs and they contain an anaesthetic to increase comfort and relaxation levels during the injection process.
Palm Clinic is a skin and vein clinic offering non-invasive treatments and laser services updated to modern standards. Their speciality skin services include dermal fillers that fight against the signs of aging by smoothing out wrinkles and folds in the skin, resulting in a more youthful appearance. Normally, people use dermal fillers in areas such as their cheeks, corners of the mouth, and jawline. However, dermal fillers can also be used in lips to enhance their shape and fullness.
Synthetic dermal fillers are considered semi-permanent, but many will last indefinitely due to ingredients like micro-polymer agents, which work in a different way to the natural acids used in natural dermal fillers such as JUVÉDERM. Palm Clinic doesn’t offer synthetic dermal fillers as, while they are potentially permanent, any negative side effects can also be permanent.
Dermal fillers are perfect for people who want to avoid facial surgery and a general anaesthetic, which some resort to without considering less invasive and safer options. The natural quality of the gel used, the lack of pain and side effects, as well as the length of time they last, are all drawcards for Palm Clinic’s clients. Dermal fillers normally last between six and 24 months, depending on the patient’s reaction to the injections, the area that is targeted, and the exact type of product that is used.
While the anaesthetic inside the filler is enough to make the process relatively painless for most clients, if required, the Clinic will use a “nerve block” anaesthetic for increased comfort. Like at the dentist, this ensures the entire area is completely numbed before injections commence. After the injections, it takes a few hours for any remaining numbness to completely subside.
Most commonly, people will experience temporary discomfort after getting dermal fillers. There’s also the minor possibility of bruising and swelling, but the clinic aims to minimise this through using the gentlest techniques possible. Avoiding exercise around the time of the treatment, and staying away from anti-inflammatories such as aspirin, is the best way to reduce the chance of bruising. It is also possible to have an allergic reaction to dermal fillers, but this is extremely rare and Palm Clinic has products on hand to break down and remove the dermal fillers as soon as possible.
