Hyaluronic Acid and collagen stimulating treatment with dermal filler is suitable for most people. We discuss your medical history at your new patient consultation and would ask you to postpone treatment if you were pregnant or breastfeeding. Treatment may not suitable if you are having immune therapy or undergoing cancer treatment.
Treatment gives balance and puts youthful curves back where they should be. Starting in the temples and midface before strengthening the lower face, jaw and perioral area around the mouth. Lip treatment is available for those who would like a natural smoothness without prominence.
Additional treatments to tighten skin, rehydrate and improve skin laxity are suitable for some patients.
All our dermal fillers treatments are performed by Dr Hemming who is extremely experienced in aesthetic injectable techniques.
You should expect some minor discomfort or tenderness initially, this settles very quickly. We use local anaesthetic injections to help numb some treatment areas and cool compress to calm any potential swelling.
Side effects are minimal if any. Injection site tenderness and mild bruising as well as redness, dry skin and itching to the treatment area may occur. If your peroral and Lips are treated this area can swell a little more after treatment and will settle within 7-14 days. Dermal fillers should not be used if pregnant or breast feeding as we have no research to prove it is safe for your foetus or child. More serious complications can occur which is why all of our dermal filler treatments are performed by a medically qualified practitioner who is trained in complication management.
After dermal filler facial contouring treatment there can be some redness and swelling and possibly some bruising. This is normal after treatment and can last a few days to 2 weeks.
Fillers are made from a clear non animal based hyaluronic acid gel injected under the skin to bind water and encourage collaged regrowth. These have low allergy rates and means your treatment can go ahead without a patch test on your first visit.
Dermal filler and botulinum toxin are both injected through a fine sterile needle or cannula into the area where volume loss has occurred.
Treatment can cause mild discomfort over a few seconds. I prefer fillers to contain a local anaesthetic as it ensures a more comfortable procedure.
Effects of dermal filler can be seen immediately and the complete effect of both filler and botox in 2 weeks.
Dermal filler lasts for 12-18 months.
Your comfort levels and expectations are important factors which are considered in your consultation. Local anaesthetic cream can be applied before treatment. Please arrive 30 minutes before your appointment to have local anaesthetic applied, after which you may relax and enjoy our private patient lounge facilities.
Treatment is a safe and effective way of replacing lost volume, lifting and hydrating in the lips and surrounding mouth area. A combination approach gives the best natural results.
Side effects are minimal if any. Injection site tenderness and mild bruising as well as redness, dry skin and itching to the treatment area may occur. Lips can swell after treatment and will settle within 7-14 days.
Dermal fillers should not be used if pregnant or breast feeding as we have no research to prove it is safe for your foetus or child.
Care must be taken if you are currently suffering with a skin infection or allergy or taking particular medication. Your specialist will be able to advise you further if you have recently had a skin peel or resurfacing procedure. Please let the doctor know if you suffer from cold sores as treatment can sometimes trigger the virus.
More serious complications can occur which is why all of our dermal filler treatments are performed by a medically qualified practitioner who is trained in complication management.
Do not touch, rub or massage the area or apply makeup for at least 6 hours.
Immediately you may have redness, swelling, bruising, discomfort or itching these should settle over 7-14 days.
Ask your doctor to advise a pre and post skin care regime to rejuvenate the skin and maintain maximum effects.
If you suffer from cold sores these may be activated by treatment and your doctor may prescribe you some antiviral cream or tablets.
AVOID skin peels, sunbeds and laser treatments for up to 2 weeks.
Dermal filler, anti wrinkle injections and skin tightening treatments vary by both volume (of filler) and type (of treatment) to give the best results. We often get asked about the cost of treatment. At Thames Skin Clinic we pride ourselves on results rather than focus on the price of a treatment, it is more important that we get the correct quality of product rather than offer cut price treatments, products and services (especially when it comes to medical treatments). You will never see Thames Skin Clinic advertising services on social coupon sites such as Groupon as we believe they have a negative impact on our customer safety, results and satisfaction. We also wish to abide by the advertising regulator and work in a safe ethical manor.
Our prices reflect the skill, training and premier product choices we have made as well as the true reflection of the beautiful bespoke clinic surroundings.
