Fine lines and wrinkles can make us appear much older than we feel on the inside. Repetitive facial movements, sun damage, and stress can all play a role in how quickly we appear to age. The good news is, you don’t necessarily have to go under the knife to achieve wrinkle reduction. Patients can enjoy smoother, younger looking skin with a simple, in-clinic visit.
Dermal fillers come in a wide variety of formulas ranging from runny liquids to thicker gels. Each is designed for a specific purpose. While one filler may be better suited for plumping wrinkles around the nose and mouth, another might work better for vertical lip lines or crow’s feet.
So, Which is Best for You?
Using the wrong product in the wrong location can result in an overdone or unnatural appearance. The best way to determine what’s right for you is through a consultation with a skilled provider familiar with facial anatomy. Your provider will know just how much product should be used to give you an optimal outcomes.
When it comes to wrinkle reduction, we tend to lean towards hyaluronic acid (HA) based fillers. HA is a naturally-occurring substance found within the body known to plump and hydrate the skin. The Juvederm® family of products contain HA as their key component. Each line has benefits that may outweigh the other for certain patients.
How Do Dermal Fillers Work?
Dermal fillers are placed at precise depths below the surface of the skin via an ultrafine needle. Our fillers are enhanced with lidocaine to keep you comfortable throughout treatment, while others may need a topical anesthetic. Immediately after injection, the skin will appear smoother, firmer, and wrinkle-free.
Dermal Fillers Consultations Available
Wrinkle reduction with dermal fillers is quick and easy. The entire injection process takes just a few minutes, and you’re able to get back to your regular day-to-day activities directly thereafter. The majority of patients can expect to get the results they want with just one treatment however a course of treatments may be required.
What Results Will You See?
Dermal fillers tend to produce instant, yet long-lasting results. An optimal outcome can occur anywhere from 6-months to 2-years depending on the formula and location being treated. Maintenance treatments can be done as needed to prolong the outcome of your procedure. Your skincare specialist will be able to provide you with in-depth information about how long your individual treatment will last prior to treatment.
This review is from my heart. One of the best things I’ve done for myself happened when i met Mr Alvi. My face was looking very tired with sagging jowls, sunken cheeks, wrinkles, some very deep indeed and drooping eyes. Mr Alvi advised facial fillers and botox and I’m so very very glad I went ahead with this treatment. He has re structured my face and I,m the happiest person in the world. Not only do I look 100% better, but I feel fantastic. My Jowls have now disappeared, wrinkles have softened, eyes look awake and I have lovely natural looking cheeks and lips.
Mr Alvi is just remarkable, an absolute professional. He listened to my expectations and then advised, in great detail, what solutions he could offer. My expectations were exceeded . I’ve told him he’s now my new best friend whether he likes it or not
Caroline, Mr Alvi’s assistant, is so lovely and caring and made me feel so at ease when I arrived for my first consultation, This outstanding care was carried forward to each appointment, she’s just fantastic.
Michael and Jess, admin staff, should get an award customer service. From the minute I step into Sthetix they treated me as a friend, their great.
