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.
Skin stimulation with radiofrequency or HIFU continue to build collagen for 2-3 months following the procedure providing fantastic and growing results following your treatment.
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.
