Should I consider dermal fillers or facial fillers such as Restylane AND Juvederm?
Dermal fillers can be used as a treatment to help reduce the appearance of deeper lines and folds and ageing skin, Dermal Fillers can also produce a more youthful appearance.
This treatment aims to replace the lost volume of your skin and can treat static facial lines by replenishing the natural hyaluronic acid content of the skin. We offer dermal fillers as an alternative treatment to Collagen injections. Small quantities of Dermal filler are injected into carefully targeted areas to help give facial features back their fullness, reduce the appearance of deeper lines and folds and can enhance contours. As a result of this treatment your face should feel smoother and look younger.
Help to reduce the signs of ageing with Juvederm and Restylane
The ageing process is associated with a loss of skin volume and the appearance of static lines, which are lines that are permanently visible on your face, rather than lines that are caused by the natural movement of your facial muscles.
As we age, the hyaluronic acid content of the skin which is important for water retention and hydration can decrease. Oil glands can become less active and subsequently your skin can become drier, lose fat, become less plump, and your youthful texture and glow can start to fade.
The benefits of dermal fillers
Like Collagen injections, Dermal fillers can be used to correct creases, folds or scars and add contour definition to the face and mouth. Injectable fillers can temporarily restore a smoother, more youthful looking appearance by increasing volume in creased and sunken areas of the face. The results from this treatment can last for 6 to 12 months.
1. Help Replace Lost Volume
As we age our skin naturally loses volume and elasticity due to reduced levels of collagen, elastin, and hyaluronic acid. As a result of this natural process deeper lines and folds can develop, particularly around the lower face, which can result in a loss of plumpness to the cheeks, chin and lips. Dermal fillers can restore this lost volume, replace youthful proportions and re-contour and re-define specific facial areas.
2. Treatment for Static Facial Lines
Standard dermal fillers can be used to temporarily treat the deeper static creases and folds that appear on the lower face. Static lines are those that are permanently showing on the face, even when the face remains static (not moving). Dermal fillers are used predominantly to the lower face in areas to the nasolabial folds, marionette lines, oral commissures and perioral lines and can be used in conjunction with other treatments e.g. Botox (upper face) and micro-needling.
3. Help to Replenish Natural Hyaluronic Acid Content of the Skin
Hyaluronic acid-based dermal fillers usually provide excellent compatibility with most patients as this ingredient is found naturally within the skin, working as a network to transfer essential nutrients from the bloodstream to skin cells. HA based dermal fillers, which are the most popular available, can bring water to the surface of the skin help keep it looking fresh and supple, revitalised and rejuvenated and which can also help to restore smooth contours.
4. Swift Results
Unlike some other injectable treatments which require a few days for the product to settle down, dermal fillers can provide almost immediate results for some patients with very little downtime, and apart from occasional redness and swelling there aren’t many side effects. Because most dermal fillers contain a built-in anaesthetic there is rarely any discomfort experienced by our patients. The modern approach of cannula use for administration can also reduce bruising and downtime.
5. Volumising Fillers can add Contouring and Definition as well as Lifting the Skin for More Youthful Proportions
Volumising fillers including Voluma and Emervel can re-contour, augment and re-define the face to restore volume specifically to the chin, lower cheeks, cheekbones and temples. They are much thicker hyaluronic acid gels which help restore age-related volume loss and can give more youthful, dynamic proportions.
Restylane skin boosters
Hyaluronic acid is one of the main components of the skin that helps give it a radiant look. As we age, the skin’s ability to produce hyaluronic acid decreases and can result in drier and thinner skin, with a dull complexion. Restylane Skinboosters™ work to improve the skin’s overall quality by boosting hydration levels deep inside the skin and increasing its smoothness, elasticity and firmness resulting in healthy skin with a beautiful glow. Skin booster treatments help to revitalise, nourish and hydrate the skin and are clinically proven for treatment of the face, neck, décolletage and hands. They are specially formulated to provide deep skin hydration and nourishment and are suitable for almost all skin types.
Visible improvements to the skin can usually be seen after a single treatment although a course of three treatments is recommended for optimum results. Contact us today to book a consultation or to find out more about facial fillers and treatments in London.
