Aging can lead to our facial and lip volume lessening but Alpers has the trick to maintaining plump and youthful skin and lips.
An instant result can be achieved using dermal filler, ridding your face of wrinkles and restoring volume.
The most common treatment this product is used for at Alpers is currently lip enhancement.
We use a dermal filler made of hyaluronic acid; a naturally occurring substance found in the body. It can be found in high concentrations in soft connective tissues, as well as in the fluid surrounding the eyes. It can also be found in some skin tissue, cartilage and joint fluids.
Now extracted and reformulated, it has become the most widely used injectable filler. We use the brand Restylane which contains local anaesthetic to provide additional comfort during and after the procedure.
This is additional anaesthetic, as a benefit to having a dentist carry out this procedure is that we are able to administer a full dental block (facial anaesthetic from the eyes downwards) or a topical anaesthetic.
Pop in for a complimentary, free consultation to discuss the treatment with Dr Nic Anderson.
If you decide you wish to go ahead with treatment it is possible for it to be carried out during the same appointment. The procedure takes 10-15 minutes and you will be able to go about your day as normal
