WHAT ARE FILLERS?
Dermal fillers are used as an effective treatment for deep lines and wrinkles. They can help to restore a youthful appearance to the face by reducing established lines and wrinkles, plumping up hollows and smoothing the contours of your face.
In addition to these benefits, fillers containing hyaluronic acid also have a hydrating effect on skin. Hyaluronic acid (HA) is a naturally occurring sugar molecule found throughout the body. It binds water and holds it in the tissues, keeping them plump and giving the skin a refreshed look. Its natural functions in the body include giving skin its elasticity. Commercially-available HA fillers include the JuvedermTM & VolbellaTM ranges, by Allergan. These HA fillers are the favoured choice at The Cambridge Aesthetic Clinic.
WHAT DOES IT INVOLVE?
HA fillers are injected into the skin in small amounts to restore volume and structure. Most HA fillers contain local anaesthetic to relieve the discomfort of the injections and to minimise any post-injection pain. A separate local anaesthetic injection may be administered prior to the treatment in order to make the treatment as comfortable as possible.
WHAT OUTCOME CAN I EXPECT?
The result of HA treatment are not permanent. Typically results will last 6-12 months before further top-ups are indicated. For the lips, 6-monthly treatments may be necessary.
