Dermal Fillers

Fillers restore hyaluronic acid to the underlying skin structure, reversing signs of ageing and restoring a smooth, supple appearance.

Fillers can soften the lines around your eyes, lift and project your eyebrows and improve your
under-eye area. Add volume to your temple. Add fullness to your cheeks, lift and project for a more defined look. Soften any smile and marionett

The
problem

Facial fine lines and wrinkles. Loss of volume, elasticity and tone.

At around the age of 25 the body stops producing collagen and elastin, the two proteins that work together to keep tissue firm and skin elastic and the existing collagen in the body begins to break down.

Without these two proteins, the body begins to display the typical signs of ageing (things like sunken cheeks, hollow eyes, deep lines and wrinkles) as the body no longer has a means of keeping tissue strong and skin supple.

The
procedure

Facial assessment and mapping.
Your skin will be cleansed and anaesthetic cream applied.
The dermal filler will be injected into the required treatment areas.
Skin will be cleaned up.

FAQ

Most frequent questions and answers

It is normal for there to be some swelling and possibly even some bruising for a few days after facial fillers but generally you will see an immediate difference in volume and shape of the treated
area. The results tend to improve as the swelling settles and the filler begins to sit more naturally in the skin

When the telltale signs of age begin to bother you such as nasolabial folds (deep lines from nose to mouth), marionette lines (downturned mouth corners) pre jowls and loss of jawline definition, loss of cheek fullness and resultant flattening, hollows and bags under eyes, hollowing of the temple. Filler can also add volume and definition to the lips.

There may be slight discomfort whilst the filler is being injected into the face but we minimise this by applying anaesthetic cream before treatment. To provide further relief some fillers contain a pre-mixed local anaesthetic.

Avoid touching the treated area for 3-4 hours following the injection. You can gently cleanse the area but no rubbing or massaging.
Do not expose the treated area to intense heat (sun exposure, sunbed, sauna) or extreme cold. Protect your skin use an SPF50.

Try to sleep on your back with your head elevated using a couple of pillows for the first few nights and this will ensure that the newly injected filler stays in place.

It can take up to 14 days for the filler to settle and any swelling to completely go.

Drinking plenty of water can keep your skin hydrated and enhance the effect of hyaluronic acid fillers.

Results can last up to approximately 6-18 months depending on the product and treatment chosen.
Lifestyle plays a big part in the longevity of your filler. Smoking, drinking alcohol and sun exposure can all have an effect on how long your filler will last.

The dermal fillers we use are not permanent and breakdown in the skin over time. Since the results are only temporary you can expect your pre-treatment wrinkles to reappear after the filler is absorbed by the body.

We would suggest not taking any blood thinners (unless prescribed by your doctor), fish oil or Vitamin C starting one week prior to treatment due to increased risk of bruising.
No alcohol 24 hours prior to treatment. No alcohol 24 hours post treatment. Alcohol can cause further swelling to the injected areas.

People who are pregnant or breastfeeding. Also anyone who is battling a sinus infection as any infection in the facial area could spread to the injection site.

Guidelines are do not have fillers within 2 weeks before Covid-19 Vaccine and leave 3 weeks after Covid-19 Vaccine. Do not have fillers in between the 2 doses of Covid-19 Vaccine.
