Tired of those irritating lines and wrinkles?
When we are younger, our skin has a natural abundance of collagen and hyaluronic acid which keeps the skin looking smooth and supple by providing structural support and hydrating the skin. Over time skin begins to sag and droop as the underlying fat and collagen diminishes.
Our Dermal Fillers (restylane), which are based on hyaluronic acid, are injected into the skin to plump it up, make it firmer and to smooth out lines and wrinkles for younger looking skin.
Filler are used to treat a number of different areas, including:
Once the fillers are injected directly under the skin is begins to attract and bind water, hydrating the skin and giving it more volume.
Prior to treatment, the face is numbed with a local anaesthetic cream or injection for minimum discomfort. The fillers are then injected underneath the skinís surface using a very fine needle to give natural volume and smooth wrinkles.
The treatment takes approx. 45 minutes and many patients go back to work and their day-to-day activities straight away. The treated area should be left alone for 48 hours to let it settle and it is advisable to avoid facials and strong sunlight for 2-3 days.
The procedure will be explained to you by the doctor, who will answer any questions you may have.
You will immediately see results, with the full effects visible once any swelling and bruising has subsided.
Although it varies from patient to patient, the results usually last 6-9 months and fade gradually.
The treatment can be repeated every 6 months.
There may be slight bleeding, mild bruising or redness where the needle was inserted which will disappear in a few days. In very rare cases an allergic reaction may occur, including itching, puffiness and red or bumpy skin. Ask your practitioner for advice if any of these are a concern.
The fillers are biodegradable and are safely broken down and removed by your bodyís natural processes.
If you do not continue treatments, your lines and wrinkles will gradually revert to how they looked before the dermal filler (restylane) treatment.
Costs will vary depending on the quantity of filler used and the number of areas treated. Prices for consultation and treatment with dermal fillers (restylane) start from £250.
