Frequently asked questions about our injectable appearance medicine

Botulinum Toxin FAQ (Botox® , DYSPORT®, XEOMIN®)

What is Hyaluronic Acid?


Hyaluronic acid (HA) is a naturally occurring polymer found in all living organisms. The Human dermis has a high percentage of HA, which hydrates the skin because of its high water-binding properties. HA is the predominant part of the viscoelastic intracellular matrix, which provides and maintains proper tissue volume and acts as a cushion to help protect the skin.




What areas can be treated by Dermal Fillers (Hyaluronic Acid )?


Dermal Filler treatments can be used to smooth out facial lines, augment lips, shape facial contours such as cheeks and the chin. Dermal fillers also also used to reduce wrinkles and sagging due to ageing. Depending on your injector and your desired look, this can be performed in a subtle manner rather than over done. Soraya’s usual approach is to subtly enhance any signs of ageing for a natural look.

The most common areas for treatment are:

Lips (enhancement, fullness, shape, definition and any asymmetries)

Cheeks (shape, and to lift the sagging skin, high cheek bone)

Chins (projection and volume)

Jowls (early signs of ageing, the heaviness)

Nasolabial Folds From the nose to the angle of the mouth

Marionette Lines (lines that form at the corners of your mouth)




How long do the results of dermal filler last?


In general, the results last 6-18 months. The duration depends on many factors such as the patient’s skin, age and injection areas, and how your body metabolism and lifestyle.




Are there any side-effects from dermal fillers?


Side-effects may occur. These include swelling, pain, itching, bruising and tenderness at the injection site. They usually disappear spontaneously within a few days to a few weeks.
