Anti-Wrinkle Treatments

Natural ageing is something we all face, but that’s no reason why you have to accept it!

Dermal fillers are commonly used in conjunction with Botox as part of a holistic anti wrinkle solution. During the ageing process, your skin loses elasticity and volume. Dermal fillers replace the volume, which can also create ‘lift’ providing a smooth natural look and feel.

Treatment typically takes 30 minutes with immediate results. You can be back to work after your appointment. As with any injectable treatment there is a risk of bruising and swelling. A medical consultation and discussion will be carried out prior to treatment.

Why do we get wrinkles?

Healthy skin needs moisture at the surface and at every level beneath it. A naturally occurring compound in the skin known as hyaluronic acid holds on to water and helps keep the skin looking full and fresh. As we age, the levels of this acid decrease and wrinkles start to form.

While you can help improve things with a healthy lifestyle, avoiding smoking and too much alcohol, dermal fillers offer the quickest way yet to give yourself a younger complexion.

How are the wrinkles treated?

The fillers used are hyaluronic acid based. This works by binding to water to create volume and this returns the skin to its normal contour. It is used for filling and smoothing lines and folds present at rest and for producing fuller and more sensuous lips.

The filler is injected from a syringe fitted with a very fine needle to minimise any discomfort. We will also use a local anaesthetic to numb the area.

After the injection, the smoothing effect can be seen straight away.

Over the following few hours, there may be some slight swelling or reddening around the injection sites. Any bruising will fade within days and can be effectively hidden with foundation.

The effects generally last for six to eighteen months, depending on the choice of filler, and you will be advised of the appropriate timings for future return visits.
