Placed in key areas, volume & contour treatments are injectable gels that are used to restore lost facial volume or enhance facial structures, giving a rejuvenated and refreshed appearance. Replicating the sugar molecule in our skin that naturally declines as we age, volume & contour treatments also attract moisture to the affected areas and may assist in restoring firmness to your skin.

Dr Ricky works primarily on global facial enhancement and signature treatments by Dr Ricky include lips, cheeks & male jawline enhancement. Dr Ricky also provides advanced treatments such as forehead recontouring and temple volumisation. Other areas that can be treated with volume & contour treatments include tear trough, chin, hands and earlobe rejuvenation.

* Individual results may vary.


What are volume & contour treatments?
