Dermal Fillers Now Available at Our Essex Clinics
Dermal fillers can be used to immediately reduce facial folds and lines, augment cheeks and enhance the shape of your lips.
You can now get dermal fillers from our clinics in Langdon Hills, Hornchurch and Rayleigh.
If you would like to restore and lift areas of your face that would traditionally be treated with surgery, you may want to consider dermal fillers.
Dermal fillers are a non-permanent, non-surgical cosmetic treatment that offers immediate results.
By injecting a natural substance beneath the surface of the skin, you can target specific areas in need of lifting, augmenting or enhancing. The added plumpness can also help to reduce wrinkles and fold lines.
When used in lips, the dermal fillers can be used to add volume to specific parts of the lips, allowing us to sculpt your lips to a desired shape or style.
How Do Dermal Fillers Work?
The dermal fillers used at YouthTopia are made from hyaluronic acid, a substance that is naturally produced in the human body.
By using hyaluronic acid to add volume to the skin, we are able to lift, enhance and augment specific areas of the face that you have chosen to target.
In smaller doses, we are able to plump out the skin behind your wrinkles, folds and lines in order to smooth out the skin above.
Dermal fillers will eventually wear off as the body absorbs the hyaluronic acid and digests it. This process is sped up if you have a high metabolism or exercise a lot.
To maintain the results of dermal fillers, you will require to-up injections.
If you want to remove the dermal fillers quicker, there are dissolving injections available, however, these can be painful so we do not recommend you have dermal fillers with the expectation of removing them after a short time.
What To Expect from Dermal Fillers
With dermal fillers, you can expect immediate results with a short downtime and limited side-effects.
As we said before, dermal fillers are a non-surgical, non-permanent cosmetic treatment. There are some side effects and there is some downtime after treatment, however, the recovery time is a lot shorter than what you could expect from surgical treatments.
The dermal fillers will give an immediate enhancement to the skin or lips. After treatment, you may experience some slight bruising and swelling from the injections, but these should subside within 4 or 5 days when the effects of your fillers will be most apparent.
The effects of the dermal fillers will continue to improve as the wrinkles and folds adapt to the new shape and become less apparent.
Depending on your lifestyle, the dermal fillers should last around 3 or 4 months. This will be less if you exercise often or have a high metabolism.
Booking Your Dermal Filler Appointment
Before any treatment begins, we’ll sit down with you for a full consultation about what you’d like to achieve with dermal fillers.
This is to make sure you understand the limitations and implications of treatment, as well as suggest other treatments if we think they might be more suitable for you.
If we agree that dermal fillers are right for you, we can carry out the treatment the same day. We’ll identify the areas you want to target, offer suggestions about how to deal with them and tell you how much filler we think will be needed.
To prevent any pain during the treatment, we’ll use topical numbing cream on the areas that we need to inject with a small needle. You may feel slight discomfort during the injection and as we inject the dermal filler, but there should be no pain.
After the treatment is finished, you may feel some discomfort as the numbing cream wears off. We also recommend that you avoid coffee, alcohol and the sun for the next 24 hours.
