I am in my 50s and would like to find out whether you offer permanent fillers for folds around the mouth
We do not use permanent fillers here at City Skin. The reason being is that they have a higher risk of infection and granuloma formation (a hard mass produced in reaction to a foreign substance being introduced to the face).
We use non-permanent dermal fillers at Cityskin. The product used in the dermal filler is found naturally in the skin, therefore, the risk of a granuloma is less likely. The other benefit with using non-permanent fillers is that we can use an enzyme to dissolve the filler, if need be.
If you have a permanent filler, we can not inject a non-permanent filler over the top of it, due to a high risk of infection.
I hope that answers your question but please get in touch if you need any more help!
