There are any number of reasons for why our skin gradually loses its structure - weather, pollution, stress or simply ageing. On top of that our skin contains a moisture-retaining compound, Hyaluronic Acid (HA) that declines with age. These elements combine to create lines around our faces.
Our Dermal Filler ranges replace lost HA by injecting a manufactured HA filler, moisturising your skin from the inside and helping to give it elasticity and tone. It can quickly restore your skin’s lost volume and smooth away those facial lines.
Dermal Fillers treat the following areas:
Naso labial lines (between the nose and mouth)
Marionette lines (the so-called ‘smile lines’ in the corners of the mouth)
Are they safe?
Our fillers are long-lasting gels that, once injected into the skin with an ultra-fine needle, lifts and adds volume to the areas being treated. Similar to one of the body’s own natural substances (hyaluronic acid), it is a completely safe treatment.
What is the difference between Botox and Fillers?
Our Dermal Fillers (Juvéderm® Ultra) and Botox work in different ways to smooth and rejuvenate your skin.
Our Dermal Fillers mimic the hydrating and lifting effect of your skin’s natural HA, which keeps the skin hydrated and elastic. They fill in and smooth away facial lines and acne scars, other skin contour deficiencies, and lost volume.
The most appropriate lines to treat with our Dermal Fillers are those that are described as static - this means the deep facial lines you can see when your face is relaxed. Static lines are due to lack of elasticity of the skin caused by sun damage, smoking, and genetics.
Botox treatments may be used to address dynamic wrinkles - those that are only seen while making facial expressions such as smiling, frowning or raising your eyebrows. Botox works in a targeted way to relax the tiny muscles that cause glabellar lines, crows feet and forehead lines- smoothing out wrinkles for around four months.
How are Dermal Fillers administered?
One of the benefits of using our fillers is you don’t need to wait three weeks for a skin test like you might with other fillers, so you can be treated on your very first visit. The area to be treated will be numbed using a topical anaesthetic cream. Your doctor may advise that you have a local anaesthetic, especially if you’re having volume added to your lips. Since our fillers are injected with a very fine needle, you’ll only feel a brief sting, if any. The transparent Dermal Filler gel is injected with a syringe into the mid- to deep dermis of your face.
How long will the treatment take?
Depending on the number of areas treated, approximately 30 minutes.
How long does it take for the treatment to work?
The results will be immediate. Your skin will be smoother and younger looking. Once any swelling has subsided the results will be subtle and pleasing.
Our fillers use a proprietary form of HA that exists naturally in your skin. It lasts longer than other older formulas - around 12 months compared to other fillers which may only last for a couple of months.
Is a recovery period required?
There is no recovery period necessary when you have Dermal Filler treatment. You may go back to work or resume your normal activities as soon as your treatment is completed. There may be some slight redness or bruising where the injections were done, but these can be covered with makeup.
Are there any side effects?
With Dermal Fillers there can be redness, swelling and bruising, which is normal and will subside. All aspects of the treatment and any possible side effects will be discussed in detail at your free consultation.
Can I combine Dermal Fillers with other treatments?
Many of our clients combine Dermal Fillers with Botox for an overall younger looking skin.
There is absolutely no obligation to go ahead with treatment. We understand that this is a big decision for you and we want you to be totally satisfied that it’s the right thing to do before committing to book the treatment.
