As we age a loss of volume, particularly in the mid-face, can cause sunken cheeks, deep circles around the eyes and the appearance of marked folds around the nose and mouth.
Temporary dermal fillers are a safe and effective way to add volume to create a more youthful appearance to the face. At Timeless Skin in central London we only use the leading dermal filler brands, which use a hyaluronic acid-based gel to replace this lost volume. Hyaluronic acid is a naturally-occurring substance in the skin which depletes as we age.
We often also see that loss of volume in the lips and lip augmentation with dermal fillers has become an increasingly popular procedure for women who wish to restore fullness to their lips or to correct a downturned appearance to the mouth.
Am I suitable for a Dermal Filler treatment?
Dermal fillers are suitable for men and women who are concerned with the appearance of lines and folds in the skin and wish to achieve a natural and subtle rejuvenation. Most patients are suitable as long as they are fit and well.
What does a Dermal Filler treatment entail?
During your free consultation with your Timeless Skin practitioner you will discuss your ageing concerns and what you’re hoping to achieve.
If you decide to go ahead with treatment, your practitioner will carefully mark up the treatment area. Tiny amounts of the dermal filler are then injected into the skin using a very fine needle and the gel immediately plumps up the skin, filling any lines or folds. The dermal filler brands we use include a local anaesthetic in the solution so discomfort is minimal.
WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF DERMAL FILLERS?
- Results are immediate and can last up to a year
- Temporary fillers mean that if you’re not keen on the results they don’t last and it is possible to dissolve the results with a product called hyaluronidase
- As dermal fillers are temporary it means the effect can be adjusted over time to suit how your face changes
- Can safely be used in combination with other procedures such as Anti-Wrinkle Injections to get optimum results
- Less chance of an allergic reaction as hyaluronic acid is a naturally-occurring substance in the body
What results can I expect from Dermal Fillers?
Results are immediate with dermal fillers, although there may be a small degree of swelling at the injection site which will subside quickly. The effects of these dermal fillers are temporary and, depending on the individual patient and the area that has been treated, results can last between six and twelve months.
Top-up treatments are safe and dermal filler patients at our central London clinic return often for repeat treatments. However, if you’re unhappy with the results, the dermal filler will eventually biodegrade and safely disappear from the body.
