Many facial depressions can be elevated to make the skin surface smoother. Lines and wrinkles, folds and some scars can be improved. Horizontal forehead lines, frown lines between the brows, crows’ feet, smile lines (nasolabial lines) cheek lines and lines around the lips can all be improved.
Dermal fillers are various substances which can be injected into the skin to plump up depressions. They have a variable duration of action depending on the product used, where it is placed and the stresses on the skin at this site.
Results are immediate with some temporary redness or minor swelling subsiding quickly.
For those whose skin has lots of generalised lines and crepiness, a series of Matrix RF treatments may be useful.
