The range of Dermal Fillers I use is a non-permanent solution for volume loss and it is an almost identical substitute to the natural Hyaluronic Acid produced by our own bodies, helping to retain soft and supple fresh skin.
Dermal Fillers are injected under the surface of the skin to treat deeper facial lines and wrinkles as well as volume loss, restoring soft tissue that declines naturally as part of the ageing process. Dermal Fillers can produce instant results, providing subtle and yet dramatic differences to the face by rehydrating, volumising, refining, remodelling and restoring the skin.
Dermal fillers are injected into the skin on various areas of the face including - lines from nose to mouth (naso-labial folds), corner of lips towards the chin (marionette lines), and down-turned corners of lips (oral commissures), using a fine needle. Dermal Fillers gently lift the face to restore volume and refresh the face.
The treatment usually takes 4-7 days to take effect, and lasts up to 3 months during the first year of treatment. Although the response differs from individual to individual, it is generally found that after the first year of regular treatments, ongoing treatments last for up to six months and less fillers may be required.
However, if you decide to discontinue your treatment you will gradually return to a pre-treatment state and the visual effects of natural ageing will continue.
Side effects are not common but may include - slight bruising, swelling, redness, headaches or tenderness at the injection site. These symptoms are rare and they occur, should resolve within a few hours or days. It is advisable that clients do not take Vitamin E, Aspirin, Non-Steroid Anti-Inflammatory Drugs or drink alcohol prior to the procedure as these substances can increase the chances of bruising. Bruising is also likely if you take some medication.
Dermal Fillers are not suitable for any individual with Myasthenis Gravis, Lambert Eaton Syndrome, patients with swallowing difficulties, pregnant or breastfeeding women, those under 18 years or over 65 years of age and those who have an infection at the proposed injection site.
