Dermal fillers are an effective smoothing treatment for unwanted facial lines and creases.
Dermal fillers offer a gentle and safe anti-ageing treatment for long-lasting skin renewal. As well as reducing wrinkles and filling in facial lines, they are also effective in restoring loss of volume to enhance lips and cheeks.
Two of the safest and most effective products, both of which are supported by significant clinical studies are hyaluronic acid dermal fillers such as Juvéderm® Ultra and Restylane®. They consist of a soft colourless injectable gel based on stabilised hyaluronic acid – a naturally occurring substance in the skin that helps to add volume and hydration. As the levels of hyaluronic acid diminish with age, moisture is lost in our skin. By boosting the skin’s supply of hyaluronic acid, these dermal fillers revitalise the skin, instantly diminishing the appearance of lines and wrinkles.
As each product has different benefits and effects, your practitioner will decide which one is right for you based upon your individual requirements. The beauty of dermal fillers is that you can be given as much or as little as you need to achieve a natural, fresh and more youthful appearance.
You may choose to have the area slightly numbed first, although this is no longer necessary as most products used in this practice contain in-built anesthetic – making the procedure virtually pain free.
The process takes about 30-45 minutes depending on the number of lines, folds and wrinkles being treated, and you can go straight back to work afterwards.
You may experience some mild post-treatment discomfort, such as redness, swelling, pain, itching, bruising or tenderness at the treatment site, but this is rare and usually subsides after a few hours or a little longer.
