ABOUT DERMAL FILLERS
Dermal Filler is specifically designed to add volume and contours to facial features, restoring a youthful appearance to areas that hollow, wrinkle and sag due to genetics, age, lifestyle or even weight loss. A treatment with Dermal Filler is an easy way to stay in control of your looks and have a positive effect on the signs of ageing. The result of a single treatment is seen instantly and may last for up to 18 months depending on the area being treated. We offer a range of specially tailored treatments to enhance your appearance.
Swedish Dermal Filler is a clear gel made from a substance naturally present in the human body, which occurs naturally in the skin and depletes as we age. The Dermal Filler enables you to replace the diminished natural substance and your facial appearance is immediately refreshed and restored.
Here at Body Recon we promote “natural” looking results. We want you to look like a fresher version of yourself.
If treatments are administered correctly this should always be the case. We like to think less is sometimes more! After all, our clients are a walking advertisement for what we do so it’s important to us that you look and feel your best.

The main differences between these fillers are their thickness, viscosity, and longevity. The finer and smoother ones tend to not last as long, whilst the thicker viscous fillers last longer. Finer fillers are generally used in areas where the skin is fine and smoothness is critical, such as around the eyes or upper lip. These fillers are very fine and can be placed superficially in the skin without causing lumps. The thicker fillers are used for more bulk volumisation of areas such as the cheeks, or jawline. They are typically injected deeper than the finer fillers.

Treatment with Swedish Dermal Filler does not affect facial expression and the benefits can normally be seen instantly. Often filler is administered after the application of our specially formulated numbing cream and/ or ice.
Swedish Dermal Filler is biodegradable, which means they will naturally disappear in the body. A follow-up treatment is usually needed after 6 to 12 months depending on individual factors and area treated. We generally like to review all Swedish Dermal Filler patients a week or two after their treatment also to ensure you are loving the results of your treatment. Discuss with your injector when a follow-up might be needed. After a treatment some reactions might occur. Most common is slight redness, swelling, itching, bruising, pain and tenderness. The reactions are generally mild to moderate and usually disappear shortly after injection. They usually resolve spontaneously within one or two days after injection, but for some treatments they may last longer.

One of the great advantages of Swedish Dermal Filler is that the effects are long lasting but not permanent. Duration depends on many factors, such as the individual’s skin type, lifestyle, age and what product is used and where. After the initial treatment, follow-up sessions are normally recommended around every 6 to 24 months depending on the individual and the treatment. Often with Filler you tend to expect to have perfect lips, cheeks etc. so patients generally like to maintain their results with treatments spaced approximately every 6-12 months.
