WHAT IS A FILLER?

Hyaluronic acid fillers

Hyaluronic acid fillers have been in use since 2003 when they replaced collagen injections as the filler of choice.

 

Hyaluronic acid exists naturally in our bodies and is responsible for hydration, cell nutrition, collagen production, lubrication and healing of wounds

 

Fillers with hyaluronic acid are produced by bacterial fermentation and then cross-linked for mechanical stability.

Different processing methods lead to individual differences between brands and types of filler, but they are all sold in pre-packed sterile syringes in the form of a gel.

 

Injecting fillers is more than a beauty treatment. It is a learned art if natural results are desired. It is a medical skill  if your safety is to be ensured. 

In many countries across the globe, only trained Doctors  are allowed to inject patients with these products.

Fillers, once injected, act like sponges and retain large quantities of water to keep the skin plumped and soft.

Fillers are not permanent, and results can last 12-18 months post-treatment.

 

We use top filler brands to ensure maximal results and minimal side effects.

We have perfected the art of painless injections using a patented computerised delivery system.

 

Radiesse®

 

Calcium Hydroxylapatite (Radiesse ®) is an inert, biocompatible dermal filler, FDA approved for use for deep volume injection.

This product has been used in medicine for 25 years and no allergies have been reported.

Radiesse® is a 30% Calcium Hydroxylapetite particles suspended in a gel carrier. Once injected, it provides immediate volume correction but continues to work by stimulating the body to produce its own natural collagen

 

It causes more post injection swelling that hyaluronic acid fillers, but the end results last longer.

 

Ellan

Ellanse is a unique dermal filler that works by not only immediately correcting the wrinkles and folds in the skin, but also by stimulating the body's own natural collagen to have a long lasting, natural result. It is our recommended filler for hand rejuvenation and also has very good results for facial rejuvenation.

Ellanse is a sterile, latex free, non-pyrogenic, totally bio-reabsorbable, non-permanent implant whose principle component is synthetic Poly-E-Caprolactone.

Ellansé™ is unique in being a  dermal filler that is a biostimulator of collagen. In skilled hands it can be used as a cost-effective alternative to traditional dermal fillers to produce immediate, natural results lasting up to 4 years.

 

What is the downtime of filler injection

 

Most injections take under an hour to perform and you can proceed with your daily activities straight after. Most common side effects are bruising and swelling, although rarer complications can develop, as with any procedure.

These could include infections, inflammatory responses, localised and systemic allergies and very rarely embolization of the filler along a blood vessel.

At our practice, we run the benefits and risks past you in detail before acquiring your consent to proceed.

 

Therefore, it is important that you choose your aesthetic practitioner carefully and follow their instructions.

 

Your practitioner should be able to deliver the result but also be competent enough to manage any rare but serious complication this procedure can cause.

 

Costs should not compromise your choice of practitioner.

What are the costs involved?

 

Prices for fillers start at £350.

COMBINATION THERAPIES

Cosmetic Dermatology and Aesthetic Medicine is not limited to a single treatment. Neither can a single treatment achieve optimum results. 

Patients are strongly advised to consider combination therapies for achieving best non surgical lifting results , targeting different areas and layers of the face/hands etc. Please look at the Morpheus8, Ultraformer 3 and Tixel sections of this website, 

In addition, we recommend the use of Skin boosters such as Profhilo, Skinko or Redensity 1 to keep your skin looking youthful.
