restore volume, treat scars or asymmetries of the face
RESTORE VOLUME, TREAT SCARS OR ASYMMETRIES OF THE FACE
From as early as 20-30 years old, our faces gradually begin to lose volume. This can cause a ‘hollowness’ and lead to gravity pulling the skin of the face forward and downward. This can inevitably result in folds within the skin as well as the formation of jowls – the classic signs of ageing. Dermal fillers are a popular rejuvenation treatment used to fill in hollows, folds and wrinkles and provide volume whilst maintaining a natural appearance.
· Dermal fillers can lift, sculpt, restore facial volume, enhance facial shape, improve proportions and treat scars or asymmetries of the face
· Treatment can be used to sculpt and shape lips, volumise cheeks, correct down turned mouth corners and sculpt the chin and jawline
· Dermal fillers are replacing fat transfer treatments due to their more reliable and less invasive properties
· Results vary for each individual, therefore, expectations and outcome will be discussed during the consultation
Dermal fillers q&a
The safest dermal fillers are clear gels made from Hyaluronic acid that last for a limited period of time. Hyaluronic acid is a compound that occurs naturally in your body and is responsible for attracting and retaining moisture. Your body produces its own Hyaluronic acid but as we age, the production diminishes. Different fillers are used in different areas and vary in thickness, viscosity and longevity.
Another type of filler is a collagen-stimulating filler such as Ellanse. These can offer a better longevity and rely on triggering the body’s natural collagen production.
Depending on the area that is being treated will depend on which dermal filler is used and where within the skin it is placed. The filler may be injected deep, onto bone to provide more volume and structure to the face. Alternatively, the filler may be injected more superficially to plump a specific line or wrinkle. Dermal fillers will provide immediate volume and correction.
Dermal fillers are suitable for anyone that is looking to rejuvenate, volumise or correct specific areas of the face. Both males and females are suitable for treatment and at Anna Medical Aesthetics, a natural approach is always taken.
Dermal fillers are a popular rejuvenation treatment that can be used in a variety of different areas.
Dermal fillers can also be used in combination with anti-wrinkle treatment for Non-Surgical Facelift
During the consultation, you will be advised about which filler would be most suitable for you and your area of concern. A local anaesthetic cream can be applied prior to treatment which can reduce discomfort during treatment. The dermal fillers of choice at Anna Medical Aesthetics have a local anaesthetic called Lignocaine integrated within the product which can make the whole process more comfortable.
Treatment times will vary depending on the area(s) that is treated and the product that is used but is generally between 30 – 90 minutes. In some cases, it can take more than one session to ensure the best possible result and allow for any ‘tweaks’.
How long the filler will last will vary depending on the product that is used and the area that is treated. Longevity can range from 6 – 18 months and will also vary from person to person.
During your consultation, Anna will be able to give you more of an idea about how long the filler should last.
Personally, I wouldn’t treat you while you pregnant or breastfeeding. This may seem a little harsh, but I would wait if it where myself. To the best of my knowledge, dermal fillers are not tested on pregnant or breastfeeding women, so there really is no safety data available. Since local anaesthetic is used for most filler injections, there is a risk it can get to your bloodstream and to your baby.
You will be able to carry on with your normal activities following treatment. It is not advised to do any heavy exercise and avoid UV exposure for 24 hours. We also advise trying to refrain from applying make-up following the procedure on the day of treatment. A full list of aftercare will be discussed on the day of treatment.
SAFETY & SIDE-EFFECTS
It is completely normal to have redness and swelling post procedure (swelling is very common after lip enhancement procedures). Swelling will generally subside after about 48 hours but can often take longer in many cases.
Despite efforts being made to avoid bruising, it can occur. If it does, it can take a week or two to disappear. Make-up can be applied to conceal it if needed, but ideally not on the day of treatment to avoid the risk of infection. Arnica gel/cream can also be worth applying to the area to help reduce the appearance of bruising.
A full list of possible side effects will be discussed with you during your consultation.
It is best to discuss your needs, expectations and suitability for treatment during a face-to-face complementary consultation. Anna can assess your facial anatomy and make tailored recommendations to achieve the best possible outcome.
