DERMAL FILLER TREATMENTS FOR WRINKLE & DEEP LINE CORRECTION
Dermal fillers are used for facial aesthetic treatment and are injected into the skin. They are designed to effectively reduce the appearance of unwanted wrinkles, contour and create volume, and to revitalise the skin.
Dermal fillers are based on hyaluronic acid which is a substance that naturally exists in your body. Hyaluronic acid is a sugar molecule that exists naturally in almost all living organisms. It binds with water and can act as a lubricant and shock absorber in moveable parts of the body such as joints. It is also important for the transport of nutrients and in regulating water balance in skin.
Dermal fillers work by boosting the skin’s supply of hyaluronic acid, dermal fillers revitalise and add volume to the skin, instantly diminishing the appearance of lines and wrinkles, and giving a natural softer look. Dermal fillers are a soft injectable gel consisting of stabalised, non- animal hyaluronic acid. The gel is tissue friendly and closely resembles the hyaluronic acid that exists naturally in the body. It is long lasting but not permanent.
Dermal filler injections provide an easy way to reduce the appearance of wrinkles, smooth the skin and give a more youthful appearance. The result of a single treatment can be seen instantly and can last for around 6 – 12 months. The filler injections give a natural looking result that does not affect facial expression.
LIPS & MOUTH CREASES – NOSE TO MOUTH LINES
One of the most effective ways to feel more confident about your appearance is to enhance the shape and possibly the fullness of your lips. Also, by softening the creases around your mouth corners you can look instantly rejuvenated.
Following the application of a topical anaesthetic in the treatment region we can safely and painlessly artistically inject a special ‘gel like’ product into the lip borders, lip body and the mouth creases as appropriate.
You will be instantly rejuvenated and the effects can last between 6 – 12 months depending on the product used.
YOUR QUESTIONS ANSWERED
What are Dermal Fillers?
As the skin ages, it loses collagen and fat. This causes the skin to sag and develop lines. Hyaluronic acid plays an important part in moisturising the skin and returning its elasticity and tone. Dermal fillers are non-animal based, synthetic hyaluronic acid gel, which is injected into the skin. Fillers work with the body’s own hyaluronic acid to smooth over, filling and plumping out lines.
Can anyone have Dermal Fillers?
Treatment should be avoided if the skin is inflamed or infected. It should also be avoided if you are pregnant or breast feeding. If you are prone to cold sores it is recommended that you use an anti-herpes cream to reduce the likelihood of an outbreak.
Where can Dermal Fillers be used?
Lots of facial areas such as your eyes – to smooth out crow’s feet, Brow – to smooth frown lines between the eyes, Mouth – to smooth vertical lines on the top lip, Nasal lines – to plump out
the deep lines from the nose to the corner of the lips and Lip enhancement – creating fuller, pouting lips or on the lip/skin border to create a more natural lip line. Enhancements can be made to other facial areas as shown.
Fillers start from £300 per vial. For example one lip line will need 1 vial and nasal lines normally need 1 or 2 vials depending on how deep they are. A short consultation appointment will allow us the opportunity to give you a full estimate of the cost.
How long do the anti-ageing effects last?
Most Dermal Fillers last between 6 – 9 months but may last as long as 12 months. This can depend on your lifestyle, skin type or age.
Are there any Side effects?
There may be transient redness/swelling/pain around the injection site. This normally resolves within 24-48 hours. There may be temporary lumpiness at the injection site which will settle within a week. You may also bruise, so bear this in mind when booking your appointment.
Allergic reaction to the fillers can occur, but this is very rare.
