This is a non-surgical 30 minute procedure involving the injection of a Hyaluronic Acid solution into the dermis layer of the skin. When inserted directly into lines and wrinkles, the solution causes the sunken skin to rise to the level of the surrounding skin – temporarily making the wrinkle disappear. Dermal fillers are non-surgical, temporary alternatives to cosmetic surgery. Unlike Botulinum toxin (Botox), which reduces the appearance and development of wrinkles by paralysing small facial muscles, dermal fillers simply plump out and fill in wrinkles, without affecting facial movement.
Hyaluronic acid fillers are the most popular of all the options in the UK, due to the fact that it’s made with naturally occurring substances. They are most commonly used to augment lips, reduce wrinkles and shadows, restore volume loss, and treat folds on the face. Its function is to add volume where the body`s own hyaluronic acid has been depleted. Hyaluronic acid is a polysaccharide (sugar) found in almost all vertebrates. It is a major component of skin structure and moisture and injected into the skin uses its ability to hold water. Dermal fillers do not replace the facelifts to correct sagging skin. We use only top quality brands such as Restylane® and Juvederm®.
Specific results of dermal fillers may vary by the individual client, but typical results will last 6 to 12 months. Hyaluronic acid dissolves over time, the correction does not last forever.
If you want to enlarge the lips, a consultation is necessary, during which you can obtain the advice about the desired shape of the lips and the amount of gel that should be administered. The lip augmentation or lip moisturizing procedure is performed under local anaesthesia. The results of the treatment are visible immediately, and the lips have the perfect shape, and will be properly moisturized. This makes them firm and has a distinct colour. The face looks younger as the treatment also reduces the wrinkles around the mouth.
