Dermal fillers are injectable hyaluronic acid gels that are effectively used in a variety of different ways from filling deep lines to revolumising, adding structure and symmetry to the face. Hyaluronic acid attracts water molecules so can also help to hydrate the skin. Fillers come in many different thicknesses for use depending on the area to be treated. For example a firm filler would be needed to sharpen the jawline, a voluminous filler to plump the cheeks, soft filler for lips and a very fluid filler for treating the tear troughs.
Areas often treated include:
-Nasolabial folds (nose to mouth lines)
-Marionette lines (mouth to chin lines)
-Smokers lines around mouth
-Upturn smile (to treat downward facing corners of mouth)
-Jawline and chin enhancement
- Tear trough rejuvenation
There are several brands of dermal fillers available. At Renew we only ever use premium quality fillers from top brands such as Juvederm, Teoxane and Restylane that are ordered from reputable UK Pharmacies. Millions of people worldwide have had these injections and their safety and outstanding results are well established. However, there is currently no restrictions in the UK on who can administer them and in the wrong hands they can be very dangerous. At Renew you can be sure that your treatment will be carried out by a very experienced Registered Nurse who will provide you with round the clock aftercare and who is competently able to deal with any problems should they arise.
Treatments are carried out after using a topical anaesthetic cream or small injection to numb the area. Filler is injected under the skin using small needles or cannulas depending on the area treated and the results required. Downtime is usually minimal , but there can be bruising, redness and swelling in the days / weeks following the treatment. For this reason it is advised to have treatments at least 3 weeks before any important event.
The results of the treatment are seen straight away and usually last between 6-12 months, varying from person to person and the area treated.
