The bones of the face form the foundation over which all the other layers sit. As we age the structure of our bones alters and in turn subtly changes the balance of our features.
It’s the presence of collagen, hyaluronic acid and fat under the skin that gives the face youthful contours and volume. Over time we lose volume as the production of naturally occurring collagen and hyaluronic acid reduces, skin becomes less elastic and the foundation of support (our bones) is reduced.
Put that together with your skin becoming thinner and the effect of gravity, the result is thinning of the facial features, reduction of cheek volume and the formation of jowls.

The advance in dermal filler products has seen dramatic changes over the past few years making for fantastic results being created without the need for any surgical procedures. Great results with less invasive treatments without the need for recovery time makes modern day injectables the way to go.
Dermal fillers are effectively used to enhance a number of mid-face areas including;
Results are natural looking and are designed to enhance the face of the client and be suitable to their age and appearance.
Dermal fillers are a gel-like product which is injected under the surface of the skin via a very thin needle or flexible cannula. There is not really any need for anaesthetic as the products we use contain lidocane,
The treatment requires a series of small injections to the treatment area unless a cannula is used, when only one entry hole is pierced with a needle and then the cannula is inserted.
Changes following dermal filler treatments are almost instantly visible but the final results will not be seen for a couple of weeks until everything has settled down. The hyaluronic acid injected, binds with water increasing hydration and adds volume to the treated area. Unwanted folds and wrinkles can be reduced in appearance resulting in smoother, healthier looking skin.
Dermal fillers have been used for many years in facial aesthetics and are used to add volume, plump up and ease the appearance of line and wrinkles.
Unwanted folds and wrinkles can be “plumped up” to reduce their appearance, resulting in a smoother, more youthful looking skin. Areas displaying a loss of volume can be eased returning them to a former glory.
There are a few issues and problems with hyaluronic acid fillers but these are in general fairly rare. These issues should be discussed with your aesthetic practitioner to ensure you know he or she is properly qualified and that you yourself won’t be added to a list of unsuccessful treatments and remain in safe hands.
The actual process of treatment varies between 40 minutes to 1 1/2 hours depending on what treatment you are wishing to receive.
The treated area should be left alone for 48 hours to let it settle. We advise that you do not have a facial or similar treatment that may disturb the products or expose the newly-treated areas to strong sunlight for 2-3 days.

After lip enhancement, some swelling is likely for a short period but there should be no long lasting effects.
There are currently no regulatory bodies governing Botox clinics, but you will see bodies such as IHAS who claim to be regulators. This is not strictly true as they simply charge practitioners an annual fee to appear on a register, creating the illusion of superior qualification or skill level. They do not regulate the medical background, training or skill level of those practitioners. BE WARNED!
Due to the lack of regulation, skill levels and qualifications of practitioners vary tremendously, therefore so do prices.
The cost to the practitioner of dermal fillers themselves vary tremendously too. The better quality products are very expensive but produce the best results and have been thoroughly tested for safety.
WORD OF WARNING – Never be tempted to choose a clinic due to their low prices or the special deals they offer. These practitioners will often under-skilled and usually use inferior quality products.
