Fuller, healthier looking skin with dermal fillers
Is it for me?
Dermal fillers use hyaluronic acid to restore the lost volume in our skin. Hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring substance that starts to diminish as we grow older. Dermal filler treatments can help create definition and refresh your appearance, so that your skin looks much younger, fuller and smoother.
If you suffer from any of the following problem areas, then dermal fillers may be the right treatment option for you.
- Frown lines
- Forehead lines
- Nose to mouth lines
- Lines around the mouth (Marionette lines)
- Smokers’ lines
- Bunny lines
Dermal fillers are also a popular treatment option to sculpt and define your lips and cheeks, both of which are areas of the face that tend to show our age.
I have extensive training and experience of using dermal fillers and can talk you through the various procedures to help you decide what is right for you. If I feel that dermal fillers are not the right solution for you at this time, I will tell you so from the outset.
About dermal filler treatment
What are dermal fillers?
Most dermal fillers are hyaluronic acid, a substance that occurs naturally in the body but that starts to deplete from our late 20s onwards. By injecting dermal fillers into the skin, it is possible to restore lost volume or create definition around the naturally more hollow areas of the face, such as around the mouth and nose.
What does the treatment involve?
During a comprehensive consultation, we will discuss the problems that are bothering you and identify the best treatment options. Once you decide to go ahead with the treatment, you will need to sign a consent form; we will also take some pre-treatment photos at this stage. After applying some numbing cream, we will inject the dermal filler into the middle layer of your skin in small does using a very fine needle.
Will I be able to see the results straight away?
Yes, with dermal fillers the results are immediately apparent. Do remember though that it’s common for the treated area to be slightly red, swollen or bruised for a short while after your treatment.
How long does the treatment take?
Each treatment usually takes between ten and thirty minutes, depending on the area we are treating.
How long do the effects of dermal fillers usually last?
This varies substantially from one individual to another. Factors such as the area treated, smoking, age, degree of correction required, type of filler and volume injected all come into play here.
Are dermal fillers safe?
Dermal fillers have an excellent safety record, but should always be administered by an experienced professional. I have a lot of facial aesthetics experience and training, and I am happy to answer any questions you may have about our wrinkle reduction treatments.
