The most popular dermal filler used in the UK is a clear gel comprised of Hyaluronic Acid, (HA) is found naturally in the body and the content of this decreases as we age leaving the skins appearance less plump and prone to deeper wrinkles.
Hyaluronic acid is also used very effectively for lip augmentation because as we age the HA content in our lips decrease resulting in lost lip volume, using HA for lips can restore volume and enhance the natural shape ensuring a balanced natural look. Other areas suitable for HA fillers are:
⦁ Lines on the forehead, and between the eyebrows
⦁ Lines on the cheek and around the mouth
⦁ Lines between nose and lips (nasolabial lines)
⦁ Lines between the mouth and chin (marionette lines)
⦁ HA filler can be used in conjunction with PRP to improve scars.
What does the treatment consist of?
The procedure involves having a small amount of HA filler injected into the specific area. The effects of this is immediate unlike Botox, with advances in needles, fillers, and injection technique this procedure is more comfortable than ever. The HA fillers we use include a local anaesthetic and we numb the area with anaesthetic cream so pain is kept to a minimum. Hyaluronic Acid is naturally hydrophilic meaning it attracts water, volumizing hydrating and softening the skin.
What are the side effects?
As with all procedures such as this side effects can happen but are generally very rare, we will discuss this fully at the consultation but common side effects include:
⦁ It Can Cause Bruising
⦁ Swelling Can Also Be A Side Affect
Is anyone suitable for fillers?
Yes, is the short answer, if you are over 18 and are not pregnant or breast feeding.
I have seen fillers advertised cheaper elsewhere?
Firstly, I am fully trained in the use of fillers. I hold and can use the reversal agent if needed, and use only the top brands available including FDA approved types of HA filler, after all they are being injected into you I would not compromise on quality. My price for this procedure is very competitive considering these aspects.
