These products can contain lidocaine, an anaesthetic, which reduces pain during and after injection. We also use a calcium hydroxyapatite product and provides longer lasting results.
Dermal fillers can be used in conjunction with wrinkle relaxing injections which provide a synergistic effect and enhanced youthful appearance.

I saw Dr Silva about 18 months ago and he removed a mole. He was very thorough in asking me what I wanted done and why. The procedure was painless and I couldn't believe the results. There was no scar whatsoever. I had a mole removed about 10 years ago and you can still see the scar - I didn't know Dr Silva then. Would definitely recommend. I was also recommended the Obagi 360 which I used twice a day for over 2 weeks. Again I was very pleased with the results and will buy it again. I recently had dermal fillers and once again Dr Silva was extremely thorough. We had a long consultation and we talked through exactly what results I wanted to see. I was a bit nervous but there was no reason to be. Dr Silva is very understanding and I will definitely be going back.
