|Fillers for deeper skin lines, grooves or adding volume to lips|
As we get older, we begin to develop deeper furrows within our wrinkles in areas such as the forehead, nasolabial folds from the nose to the corner of the mouth and crease lines. Aging results in the collagen protein in our skin decreasing in volume causing fine wrinkles and grooves. Fillers are a proven treatment to smooth out those troublesome furrows and restore fullness to the skin. Fillers can be used for:
If you are concerned about your deeper forehead lines, depressions caused by acne pits or blemishes then dermal fillers may be a suitable treatment option. Call us for a consultation to discuss the range of suitable treatment available for you.
Hyaluronic acid fillers are commonly used as dermal fillers and these are substances which can be injected into the dermis to increase the volume of the tissues which results in smoothing out the facial wrinkles and giving the skin a softer appearance. The procedure takes around 30 minutes and the effects are immediate.
Restylane is a dermal filler composed of non-animal stabilized hyaluronic acid. Hyaluronic acid is a natural substance that already exists in the human body and is used to provide volume and fullness to the skin. The hyaluronic acid in Restylane is a crystal-clear gel called NASHA™. NASHA is biodegradable and completely biocompatible with human hyaluronic acid. Restylane is available as number of different products that are tailored to a patients need. Juvéderm is also a hyaluronic acid that is used solely for wrinkles and folds in the skin.
No, you are able to go home straight after the procedure. Studies have shown that Restylane effects generally last for about six months. The unique NASHA™ technology helps maintain the cosmetic effect until the injected material is nearly gone.
Fillers have been used by dermatologists and plastic surgeons since 1996 in over 70 countries and treatment is regarded as very safe. The most commonly reported side effects were temporary redness and swelling at the injection site and these effects typically resolve in less than seven days. No allergy testing is required before use.
Restylane and Juvéderm requires no pretesting, but you should take a few precautions before being treated. Avoid using aspirin, non-steroidal anti-inflammatory medication, St. John’s wort, or high doses of Vitamin E supplements prior to treatment, because these may increase bruising or bleeding at the injection site.
Restylane is a natural cosmetic filler. In contrast, Botox is a drug that blocks nerve transmission and relaxes the underlying muscles. Many patients have been very pleased after receiving treatment with both products.
The fee is from £199. Dermal fillers are a customized procedure based on your specific needs, so the cost will vary from patient to patient. In general fillers are relatively long-lasting and may be economical over the long-term.
