Skin-ageing is an inevitable process but it’s not invincible! Dermal fillers are a fantastic option to fight against the signs of the skin-ageing process. This treatment removes the appearance of wrinkles, lines and sagging to give you back a youthful look that’s sure to make you feel better about getting a bit older!
Dermal fillers are injectable treatments that are used to fill out the soft tissue in your face. This reduces lines, wrinkles and folds in your face, as well as provide a full and youthful look. The properties of these products are also great for enhancing the shape and appearance of your lips. Dermal fillers are commonly based on hyaluronic acid which is a naturally-occurring molecule and works by increasing moisture levels in your skin.
Maintaining your skin’s hydration is increasingly important as you get older because your body stops producing collagen and elastin. These two proteins work together to keep your skin firm and elastic. The application of dermal fillers volumises your soft tissue and prevents it from sagging which causes wrinkles, lines and facial folds. The hydration caused by dermal fillers also give your skin a youthful radiance.
Our cosmetic skincare experts will work with you to identify the areas of your face that you would like to be treated. Once these areas have been established, we will talk you through the type of filler we will be using and why it’s suitable. The way that hyaluronic acid works means that is best for treating static lines – the ones you can see even when your face is relaxed. However, different kinds of dermal filler suit different static lines in the face. Smoothing over nasolabial folds around the cheeks, for example, will require a thicker filler to uplift the tissue around the cheekbones. However, lines around the eyes will need a thinner filler treatment because the skin and tissue around this area is thinner.
This treatment is non-evasive and non-surgical which means that very little downtime will be needed post-procedure. Dermal fillers are also non-permanent, so repeated procedures will be needed to maintain the full and young look they provide. On your request, we will invite you for a follow-up appointment to restore additional dermal fillers, at which point we can assess your progress and suggest appropriate treatment going forward. We like to work with you to achieve the appearance you are looking for, as our patient’s care is at the heart of what we do.
