Dermal Fillers

WHAT ARE NON-PERMANENT DERMAL FILLERS & WHAT CAN THEY DO?

Dermal fillers such as Restylane (R) are used as to reduce lines and wrinkles. Also to add volume – for example to the lips and cheeks.

These products are a non-surgical option to result in smoother, firmer, plumper skin.

These are safe, high quality, extensively tested and clinically researched products available in a range that offers versatility for different facial areas.

They are made from a substance called Hyaluronic Acid – which is found naturally in our skin and joints – meaning they integrate well.

WHAT AREAS CAN IT TREAT?

  • These injections can instantly lift fine lines and deeper wrinkles, add lost volume and shown to deeply hydrate the skin and stimulate the bodies own collagen.
  • Nose to mouth lines
  • ‘Sad’ mouth corners
    Frown lines
  • Hollowing under eyes (tear trough)
  • Improve cheek fullness
  • Enhance lip volume
  • For receding/weak chin
  • ‘Smokers’ lines – vertical lines around the mouth
  • To disguise crooked/uneven noses or hump on nose
  • Wrinkles on the décolletage

HOW LONG DOES IT LAST?

One of the great advantages of temporary dermal fillers is that they are long lasting but not permanent. They last from 6-18 months dependant on the product used, where it is placed and the clients lifestyle and skincare.

Clinical studies have shown that ‘top-up’ treatments prolong duration. There is a maintenance required if you love and want to upkeep the look. However, if you don’t continue it will slowly be naturally broken down by the body and you will go back to how you were before the treatment.

WHAT DOES A DERMAL FILLER TREATMENT INVOLVE?

Firstly you will be seen for a free consultation. This will be with your advanced nurse practitioner Maxine. Your facial concerns will be discussed, also other questions about your health, allergies, medications and medical background.
You will be given options on what is available and suitable for you. If you would like, an email will be sent which details what has been discussed, also some information leaflets will be given. Any queries will be answered honestly and treatments discussed that are tailored to be right for you. Its completely up to you what you decide and there is no pressure!

You should only go ahead with the procedure when you feel that you have been well informed and all questions answered. It can take 30-60 minutes. A medical questionnaire and consent form is completed. Confidential photographs are taken before and after. A local anaesthetic (numbing) cream is applied.

Before commencing the skin is cleansed with antiseptic. Then the dermal filler is injected with a fine needle using a variety of techniques. There is local anaesthetic in the dermal filler to ensure its not a painful procedure. Results are instant although can improve further over several weeks. The outcome should be subtle but effective.

Some massaging of the product is used afterwards by the practitioner.

A recovery cream and cover up can also be applied. Post procedure advice will be given and a follow up appointment booked.

RECOVERY TIME/SIDE EFFECTS

Many clients go back to their usual routine. Some heavy activities may need to be avoided at first. You may experience redness, swelling, tenderness and bruising following the treatment. This is the same as you might expect from any type of injection. This is temporary and usually disappears within a few days, or can be disguised with make up. With lip enhancement as they are rich in blood supply and quite sensitive they may be swollen &/or bruised for a few days.

Cold packs, anti-histamines and anti-inflammatories may be advised.

Other uncommon side effects include infection and lumpiness.
