Most people can benefit from dermal filler treatment. If you wish to:
Dermal fillers are injected into the skin and reduce the appearance of unwanted wrinkles, contour, create volume, and revitalise the skin. They are based on Hyaluronic Acid which is a substance that naturally exists in your body.
Hyaluronic acid exists naturally in your body. It binds water and can act as a lubricant and shock absorber in movable parts such as joints. It is also important for the transport of nutrients and regulates water balance in skin.
By boosting the skin’s supply of hyaluronic acid, dermal fillers revitalise and add volume to the skin, diminishing the appearance of lines and wrinkles, and giving a natural softer look. They are long-lasting but not permanent.
Dermal filler injections provide an easy way to reduce the appearance of wrinkles, smooth the skin and give a more youthful appearance. The result of a single treatment can be seen instantly and can last for around 6 to 9 months.
Dermal fillers should not be used where there is skin disease or inflammation. They are not suitable for pregnant or breast-feeding women or individuals with medical conditions that lower the body’s immune response.
A local anaesthetic cream can be applied to the area for a more comfortable treatment experience. At face+ we only use dermal filler products with local anaesthetic included for a more comfortable treatment experience.
Injection related reactions may occur, they typically resolve spontaneously a few days after treatment. These reactions include redness, swelling, pain, itching, bruising or tenderness at the injection site.
All our filler products come with a numbing agent for extra comfort. Prices include a free initial consultation. Consultation and treatment may be carried out on the same day – from £270.
During the initial consultation at face+, we will discuss your treatment expectations. After discussion of what you wish to achieve and assessment of your treatment needs, we will recommend which dermal filler treatment is most suitable for you.
After the consultation, and if you are happy to proceed, we will help you complete a medical history form and you will need to sign a consent form before treatment can progress.
Dermal filler is injected into the skin in small amounts using a very fine needle. The gel provides natural volume to smooth away the appearance of lines and wrinkles, enhance facial shape, or create fullness in the lips or cheeks. Dermal filler products improve the elasticity and texture of skin, restoring and maintaining the skins hydrobalance.
The treatment is quick, typically taking about 15-30 minutes. Treatment with dermal fillers do not affect facial expression and the benefits can normally be seen instantly.
Dermal filler products are biodegradable, which means they will naturally disappear in the body. To ensure an optimal and long lasting result, a top-up treatment is recommended 6-12 months after your initial [Restylane] treatment. Discuss with us when a follow up appointment may be appropriate.
After a treatment some reactions might occur, these include; are slight redness, swelling, itching, bruising, pain and tenderness. The reactions are generally mild to moderate and usually disappear shortly after injection. They typically resolve spontaneously within one or two days, but for some treatments they may last longer.
One of the great advantages of dermal filler treatment is that the effects are long lasting but not permanent. Duration depends on many factors, such as the individual’s skin type, skin condition lifestyle and age. After the initial treatment, follow-up sessions are normally recommended around every 6 to 12 months depending on the individual and the treatment. A treatment of the lips or cheeks lasts about 6 months.
