Thanks to innovative manufacturing techniques, each Restylane® dermal filler achieves an ideal balance between cross-linking and gel calibration, maintaining a consistent hyaluronic acid concentration of 20 mg/ml.

By adjusting gel calibration and cross-linking levels while keeping the hyaluronic acid concentration constant, Restylane® achieves optimal gel texture. This variation allows for the creation of fillers with different thicknesses and firmness, ensuring suitable integration into the skin layer for the desired lifting effect.

Restylane® fillers offer excellent tolerability and long-lasting aesthetic results, as demonstrated in clinical studies, making them suitable for various depth, area, and volume corrections.

questions

Are Dermal Fillers available at all Skin Renewal clinics?
When should one start using dermal fillers?

Early intervention is key in wrinkle treatment, starting when wrinkles are still soft to prevent them from becoming ingrained and scar-like.

Using dermal fillers to fill wrinkles prevents skin breaks and stimulates collagen production, leading to long-lasting wrinkle improvement. Regular filler injections every 6 to 12 months maintain superior results by continuously stimulating collagen.

In addition to treating wrinkles, ageing faces often lose volume in areas like the temples, eyebrows, and cheeks. Replacing lost volume with dermal fillers can defy gravity, rejuvenating the face with minimal downtime.

How does dermal fillers work?

Hyaluronic acid is abundant in human tissue, particularly in the skin, eyeballs, and cartilage. It acts as a natural shock absorber and hydrator. However, as we age, our bodies produce less of it, leading to issues like osteoarthritis and skin dehydration.

By replenishing hyaluronic acid in the skin and lips, we can improve hydration and skin thickness. Moreover, hyaluronic acid injections stimulate the body's natural collagen production, which fills wrinkles and enhances skin texture. As the filler breaks down, it prompts collagen stimulation, extending the benefits of the treatment. It's a win-win situation for skin rejuvenation.

What to expect after a dermal filler treatment

After a filler treatment, minimal swelling or bruising allows you to resume normal activities immediately. At Skin Renewal, we offer a complimentary PDT/LED session post-procedure, a healing light therapy that reduces bruising and swelling, extending the filler's effects.

You can apply makeup immediately and continue with your usual activities, though expect some redness and swelling for a few hours to a few days.

At Skin Renewal, we schedule a follow-up consultation two weeks later to ensure your satisfaction and address any concerns. To minimise bruising, avoid aspirin, myprodol, omega-3, or high-dose vitamin E supplements 10 days before the procedure (unless medically necessary).

For two weeks post-procedure, it's also advised to refrain from saunas and steam baths.

Are dermal fillers safe?

Dermal fillers, derived from hyaluronic acid, are created using human genes within bacteria. This protein is highly consistent across species, reducing the risk of allergic reactions and eliminating the need for pre-treatment skin tests.

These fillers have a proven safety record. They have been used in millions of patients over 12 years with minimal side effects.

Can all skin types be safely treated with dermal fillers?

Yes, all skin types can be safely treated with dermal fillers.

From the moment I stepped into Skin Renewal Claremont I was greeted with a warm welcome and genuine friendliness from the staff. My therapist Crai-Dean and Doctor Michele radiated positive energy, patience and were incredibly encouraging throughout my visit. Their professionalism and enthusiasm truly enhanced my experience. I'm excited to embark on my treatment goals with such a supportive team by my side. Highly recommend!

What an experience. I have been building up for 10 years to have my upper lip seen to. After meeting Dr Zander and the calming effect on me I decided to take the big step. What an awesome person. What an awesome environment from you minute you walk in, to the time you leave. Renewal Institute will be my second home. Above VIP treatment. Thank you

I've been a client at Skin Renewal for the past 5 years, at the Parkhurst, Morningside and Pineslopes branches. All the staff are professional and friendly, and each visit is consistently amazing. I am particularly happy with Dr Lestonn Lawn, who I've been seeing for lip injectables for just over 2 years now. I love his manner and technique and after every visit, my lips never fail to look amazing (Kylie Jenner for what)! We've done Juvederm as well as Restylane fillers, and both have had fab results, thanks to the precision of Dr Lawn! 6 out of 5 stars from me :)

I have been a client of the Skin Renewal Institute since the beginning of this Year and have never looked back. The attention to detail and the warm, friendly faces of the entire Skin Renewal team makes you feel instantly at home. I have had the pleasure of my treatments for aging and acne done by Dr Maureen Allem. She is literally Wonder Women. When it comes to Acne, she treats you from the inside out and I have been noticing amazing results over time. I have had Restylane under eye fillers in the tear trough area and Princess volume done on the outer corners of my eyes. They have filled up nicely and I don’t have that tired & exhausted look about me anymore which I have always tried to cover up with makeup. The procedure stung a bit, was not uncomfortable and I did not require a topical aesthetic at all. A follow up visit is required to access the area once fillers are done. The radiance peel for acne and scarring is definitely a must, and when Lourita Louw is done with you, your face will literally glow. I have done 3 treatments so far and have noticed significant improvement with texture and scarring. I am wearing less makeup during the day and have skipped base all together. The Health Renewal part of the clinic is worth every penny spent. Forget cocktails at the bar, how about one that actually benefits you in a number of ways. Dr Maricia is definitely the one to see when it comes to this. She is the holy grail of all things cocktails when it comes to IV infusion health. The IV infusions are painless and she is really gentle when it comes to the needle which I appreciate, seeing as I hate needles. Whatever your concern, visiting the Skin Renewal Pineslopes branch is definitely worth the consult.

I received excellent service from the first phone call to the clinic. I received all the information I needed before I even arrived and felt complete confidence in the treatment I received from Dr Rulene Maré. I would not hesitate to recommend Skin Renewal Somerset West to anyone wanting to improve their appearance and to boost their self-confidence.
