Dermal fillers are perfect for people who want a non-invasive, temporary solution which will help them regain the youthful look they once had.
There is minimal discomfort and downtime so there is no need to take time off work, and the results are very subtle. Most people will just think that you look great!
There are different fillers on the market, and the one that you choose with your Westbourne Centre practitioner will depend on the look you are trying to achieve, the length of time you want the effect to last, and where on the face you want to reduce lines.
Some brand names you may have heard of are: Juvederm ®, Teosyal®, Restylane® and Sculptra®.
Anaesthetic creams can be applied in advance with some fillers to reduce any discomfort. It is also possible to have fat injections to increase volume in areas of the face where there are deep wrinkles and sagging.
You will need to discuss with your practitioner exactly what you want to achieve as managing people’s expectations is a main priority of any cosmetic treatment. If you want to achieve the effects in advance of a special occasion it is advisable to have Botox ideally two weeks before the event.
Dermal fillers have immediate results – but there may be a slight swelling or bruising immediately afterwards, so you may want to have the treatment seven to 10 days in advance.
