Vacial volume restoration with fillers

Fillerinjections are administered in the office. This is the least invasive method to restore facial volume. Ater deep injection the product is digested by the body over the course of about three years. Therefore the treatment is usually repeated annually with smaller quantities.

The first weeks light swelling may occur. After about a week the doctor pay remodel the product with firm, digital pressure, when necessary.

This treatment allows subtle volume corrections without the disadvantages and inconveniences of operations. This can be done for early signs of ageing or other causes of volume loss, as well as for advanced problems. More complex treatments, however, are usually divided into several sessions.

Allergy to fillers is very rare. An exaggerated body response with redness, swelling and lump formation (granuloma) has been described, but it is also very rare.

The lower eyelids are sensitive to long lasting swelling. Therefore this area is treated in small steps and with the greatest care.

Volume corrections are most often performed on the lateral aspect of the eyebrows, the temples, the cheekbones, under the nose wings and the lips, the chin, and the jaw line.
