Dermal Fillers

LWH-117

FACIAL FILLERS: There are other treatments that can be used to correct wrinkles or small scars on the face. Different substances can be injected into a line, crease or scar to plump up the skin underneath.

Collagen is a well-known example of such a ‘filler’ but the effects can be short-lived and it may cause an allergic reaction. There are several other alternatives such as Artecoll, Hylaform, Perlane or more commonly Restylane. These are injected in a similar way to Botox and have very few side effects. Two-thirds of the injection is likely to be present one year after the procedure, but it will need to be repeated to maintain the results.

There may be some swelling or tiny bruising, but this usually settles within 24 hours. You would be advised to refrain from exercise or any strenuous activities for 1-2 days until the best results are seen.Some of the first signs of aging can be seen in the smile lines (nasolabial folds), crow’s feet (lines around the eyes), and glabellar furrows (lines on the forehead).  While some lines can be considered a sign of character, deep furrows and lines can give the impression of tiredness and age.  Softening these lines will convey a message of youthfullness and vitality.Patients who are typically apprehensive about procedures with needles do quite well with Dr. Shah’s finese technique.  His knowledge of facial anatomy allows him to block certain nerves, making the experience pain free.

Use of fillers differs from women in several regards.  Men tend to have thicker skin than women, which can make “thin” fillers less effective.  Heavy fillers are some of the newer fillers on the market including Perlane, Juverderm Ultra Plus, and Radiesse.  “Heavy fillers” work better in men for several reasons.  First of all, thicker fillers last longer than their counterparts, making repeated visits to the physician less relevant.  The heavy fillers are placed in a deeper layer of the dermis than the thinner fillers, which allows for larger amounts of filler to be placed without compromising a natural look.

Smooth lines & wrinkles, enjoy a fresher, younger-looking appearance

The most common areas to treat include wrinkles of the forehead, between the eyes (glabellar region) and around the corners of the eyes (crow’s feet). Our Surgeons at London Welbeck Hospital are renowned for achieving subtle but highly effective results. With this in mind, we invite our patients back after two weeks for a reassessment and if required or desired we will administer additional product at no additional charge. Our aim is always to achieve the very best results for you and exceed your expectations, each and every time.

 

Benefits
  • Smoothes lines and wrinkles on the forehead
  • Reduces the appearance of crow’s feet
  • Softens frown lines & delays the deepening of lines & wrinkles
  • Delivers a fresher, more youthful appearance
  • Greater clothing options & choices

 

Procedure

Using a very fine needle, the product is injected into the facial muscles and works by blocking the nerves that contract the muscles, thereby softening the appearance of the line or wrinkle. The skin above the muscles becomes nice and smooth after a period of between three to 14 days. It takes this time for the product to settle, attached itself to the nerve endings and get to work. A very fine needle is used and the treatment is considered painless by the majority of patients.

Visibly clearer, brighter, rejuvenated looking skin

The Image Skincare Beta Lift and Perfection Lift Peels are gentle yet effective medical grade peels which can only be administered by a Registered General Nurse. What this means is that not only are the results more effective but you can rest assured you are in the safest possible hands. The best advice is not to let the word “peel” put you off, a peel can be an entirely gentle yet effective way to improve your skin. Our skin cells turn over and build up every 28-40 days depending on age, so it makes sense to have a resurfacing treatment every month to six weeks for optimum skin health.

 

Benefits
  • Brightening, rejuvenating
  • Improves texture & tone
  • Reduction in lines & wrinkles
  • Rebalances skin, removes acne and red marks
  • Prevents break outs
Procedure

A facial peel involves a professional exfoliation of the top layers of the skin using medical grade ingredients like salicylic acid and lactic acid, to remove the build up of dead skin cells and neutralise bacteria (if needed). Depending on your skin’s needs and the results you wish to achieve high doses plant stem cells, peptides, anti-oxidants and vitamins are then applied to the skin. Not only will skin appear visibly clearer and smoother but skin will be brighter, calmer and rejuvenated. The products you use at home are better able to penetrate the skin and below the surface collagen is kick started to continue the benefits at home

Fill lines, restore volume and enjoy a fresher, more youthful appearance.

As we age, the collagen that gives our skin durability and flexibility declines which results in the appearance of lines and wrinkles and the loss of fullness and volume. Dermal fillers are an extremely popular and successful method of treating these concerns and deliver a fresher, more youthful appearance.

Benefits
  • Reduces laughter lines & smile lines (nasolabial folds)
  • Fuller more youthful face
  • Tightens loose skin, addresses loss of volume around the jaw
  • Fuller lips & cheeks
  • Delivers a fresher, more youthful appearance
Procedure

Dermal fillers involve an injection of a gel-like product (depending on the type of filler) to physically fill and plump out the line or area of concern. The product acts as a scaffold under the skin, providing structure and stimulating your own natural collagen to grow. Ultimately the body absorbs the product and leaves behind the natural collagen for long-lasting results. There are a wide range of fillers to choose from which your Nurse will discuss in great detail and make the best recommendation for you.
