The office Christmas do is your big chance to show colleagues, and your boss, just how fabulous you can look! And wrinkles definitely aren't invited. This article looks at how far in advance you need to have your anti-wrinkle treatments to look great on the day of the party.
We are delighted to offer expert dermal filler treatment to patients at our Sevenoaks clinic.
Understanding dermal fillers
Dermal filler treatment involves carefully targeted injections of hyaluronic acid.
Hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring substance in our bodies, which helps to maintain the structure of the skin, working alongside substances such collagen and elastin. These elements deplete as we get older as a natural part of the ageing process.
Dermal fillers are particularly effective at restoring lost volume to areas of the skin that have become hollow, which can result in a ‘drawn’ appearance. They are used to fill out and reduce the appearance of deep lines, and to hydrate the skin. The result is skin that appears plumped and rejuvenated.
We can use dermal fillers to improve these common issues:
- Smokers’ lines/perioral lines
- Oral commissure lines
- Marionette lines
- Nasolabial folds
- Sunken under-eyes and cheeks
- ‘Bunny’ lines
- Bags under the eyes
What can you expect from dermal filler treatment?
Your treatment will be carried out in the comfort of one of our bright and welcoming Sevenoaks treatment rooms.
Before your treatment, your practitioner will discuss your medical history and your desired outcome. This ensures that fillers are a safe and appropriate treatment for you.
Dermal filler injections will take between 20 and 30 minutes, depending on the area to be treated. Most fillers include a local anaesthetic to minimise any discomfort during the treatment.
You’ll see the benefits of your treatment straight away, although there may be a little swelling which can take a few days to subside and reveal the final results.
After your treatment you can go about your day as normal; your practitioner will talk you through any aftercare requirements. The area treated may feel a little sore for a couple of days and occasionally there’s a small amount of bruising at the injection points, which should quickly heal.
Your fillers will last for six to twelve months. If you’re not delighted with your results, then your practitioner will make any necessary adjustments. This can include dissolving the filler, if required.
