Want more volume in your lips and reduced wrinkles, but don’t want to resort to needles?
This restorative treatment works by using compressed air to project dermal filler through a small opening into the skin, the pressurised air penetrating right down to the dermis for an instant, long-lasting plumping effect.
Using the most advanced technology on the market and shaping your skin according to your own individual requirements, the treatment is gentle and unobtrusive compared to traditional needles.
What are the benefits?
Reduces wrinkles and gives volume to your lips without the use of needles.
What is the downtime?
This treatment does not require any downtime. You may return to normal activities straight after your treatment.
Are there any possible side effects?
As with normal fillers, some swelling or bruising is possible.
How many treatments do I need for best results?
Results are instant. The average duration is 1-3 months. However, your lifestyle will have a factor in the longevity of this natural product. A top-up treatment is required 2 weeks after treatment.
This treatment is for mild to moderate wrinkles only. Your practitioner will advise you if the treatment is suitable.
