Dermal fillers are e fantastic for revolumising and restoring a softer more youthful appearance. They are extremely versatile and can be used to enhance multiple areas of the face that are showing signs of volume loss, wrinkles and sagging skin associated with ageing. Individuals wanting increased definitions and contouring to cheeks and lips can also benefit. Dermal rollers provide instant, natural results with effects that last between 6-12 months.
Dermal fillers allow greater precision in wrinkle correction and can effectively treat medium to deep wrinkles, at depths which other methods cannot. Additionally, dermal fillers are non-invasive compared to surgical solutions. They are biocompatible, rarely cause reaction, and can be dissolved by injection if there are any problems.
In your consultation you'll speak with one of our Cosmetic Nurses about your background and medical history at. A treatment plan will be devised, which sets out how we will use dermal fillers (possibly in conjunction with other techniques and tools) to create the results that you want.
At your dermal filler appointment:
The dermal filler product we use contains a local anaesthetic that makes the injection comfortable.
The area to be injected is marked out.
The dermal fillers are injected
The procedure takes about 30-60 minutes in total, depending on the size of the area to be treated.
At Skin Boost Clinics we use Restylane. Delivering reliable outcomes and a proven safety record for more than 20 years, Restylane provides the natural elegance to make you look good and feel good.
Collagen and elastin give your skin its plump and youthful look, however as we become older, our bodies’ ability to produce collagen and elastin decreases, which can lead to a loss of volume in the face and creases in the skin. Dermal fillers help to restore volume to redefine the natural curves of the face, and with skilful application, you'll look just like yourself, only fresher and more radiant.
Dermal Fillers are injected below the skin's surface to fill-in wrinkles or hollow areas, plump-up small areas such as the lips or redefine larger areas such as the cheeks. Dermal Fillers achieve a more youthful appearance by:
Sculpting and lifting through the mid face.
Adding definition to the chin and jaw lines.
Reducing tear trough hollows.
Restoring volume to the cheeks.
Softening nasolabial folds or marionette lines
IS IT PAINFUL
Dermal fillers have a fast-acting local anaesthetic mixed into the gel, and the actual injection time is very short, so any discomfort that may present is gone very quickly.
The injected area may be numb for about 20 minutes after the procedure, and it may become tender to the touch, but any tenderness should subside in just a few days.
WHEN DO I SEE RESULTS
Straight away! Dermal Fillers provide instant results.
IS THERE ANY DOWNTIME?
In most cases, you’ll be able to return to your normal daily activities straight away. There may be some temporary redness which can be masked with a mineral powder. Bruising can occur, but we do our best to minimise bruising with post-treatment pressure on the needle entry points.
Swelling is apparent for a few hours but is usually not uncomfortable. It settles relatively quickly depending on your skin type, the site of the injection and the amount of product used.
Lip enhancements tend to require more time for the swelling to go down, so you may prefer to do them after work instead of midday.
HOW MANY TREATMENTS DO I NEED
We recommend revisiting Skin Boost Clinics every 6-12 months for Dermal Filler top-ups.
