At our clinc we only use the safest non-permanent fillers such as Restylane® and Juvederm®. These contain Hyaluronic acid, which occurs naturally in our body giving volume to our skin and lubricating our joints.
We prefer Hyaluronic acid as it does not contain animal protein and does not require a skin test prior to treatment. It has over 15 years of safety data and has been used for many millions of treatments. We have personally been using Restylane®, Juvederm® and Hydra Fill® products since 2003. We have been extremely impressed by the results and have confidence in its safety as we have had NO serious problems.
Restylane® and Juvederm® has many wonderful uses and can be used anywhere, including the face, lips, décolleté. To smooth wrinkles, fill folds, sculpting lips or enhancing contours. To hopefully highlight a reoccurring theme, we aim to provide a natural enhancement to make you look fresher and avoid the ‘over worked or worked on’ look.
After your consultation and application of a local anaesthetic cream (the products have local anaesthetic in them now so some of our patients decline the cream) your treatment takes about 20 – 30 minutes. Injection related reactions depend on the treatment area and may occur such as slight swelling, redness, and bruising for the first few hours. However serious reactions are very rare. The result is immediate and depending on the type of product used, and area treated can last between 6-12 months.
