Dermal filler

from£180

Treatment Description

Dermal fillers are small injections of gel, typically made up of hyaluronic acid, that fill in wrinkles and a dd volume to soft tissue

What Are Dermal Fillers?

Your skin consists of two layers: the outer layer called the epidermis, and the inner layer called the dermis. The dermis is made up of cells known as fibroblasts which produce collagen, elastin, and hyaluronic acid, which are important components in maintaining healthy, youthful looking skin. As we age, the amount of collagen, elastin, and hyaluronic acid decreases and this decline causes the skin to become droopy, less resilient, and develop wrinkles or folds. Many topical anti-ageing products affect only the epidermis, but for truly amazing results, treatments must penetrate through this outer layer and target the cells of the dermis as well. Facial fillers are one of the safest and least invasive ways to dramatically reduce the signs of ageing and restore depleted collagen or hyaluronic acid. The dermal filler is injected under the skin using a fine needle.

Fat-dissolving injections

from£80

Treatment Description

Fat-dissolving injections are incredible compounds that work to break down the membranes of fat cells beneath the skin, which are typically resistant to exercise. Commonly used to treat submental fat (‘double chin’) and pockets of fat around the abdomen/tummy area, thighs, arms and back fat, a course of regular fat-dissolving injections can yield permanent results. For stubborn pockets of fat which simply won’t shift, fat-dissolving injections offer a long-term solution in the problem areas which bother you most. This is an excellent non-surgical treatment for people who maintain a healthy diet and exercise regime but who are still struggling to tone specific areas of the body, like the stomach and ‘double chin’ area.

Profhilo

from£250course of 3: £650

Treatment time: 30 minutes

Treatment Description

An injectable moisturiser for ultra-hydration, Profhilo is a miracle skin-booster. Hailed as a bio-remodelling innovation, Profhilo features the highest level of concentrated hyaluronic acid on the market. It stimulates the production of collagen and elastin, key proteins for full, smooth, wrinkle-free skin. Elastin fibres become more susceptible to wear and tear as we age and the production of collagen naturally slows down, so this simple procedure can help to not only slow down the signs of ageing but protect against it too. Both hydration and tightening can be achieved, improving facial volume, eradicating fine lines and wrinkles, and deeply nourishing the skin to help reduce sagging and dry skin.
Profhilo boasts a low-level inflammatory response and is therefore considered to be a safe and effective treatment. Due to the high patient satisfaction rate and efficacy, Profhilo is deservedly one of the most popular all-round anti-ageing treatments available.

Eye rejuvenation treatment

from£150

Treatment time: 30 minutes

Treatment Description

Many of our patients come to us without specifically knowing what treatment they need, and something we hear frequently is “I just look tired”. Tired eyes are a common complaint and can be made up of a number of conditions, including dark circles, eye bags, puffy eyes, drooping eyelids, and wrinkles.

Anti-wrinkle injections

Does it hurt?

Anti-wrinkle injections are generally a comfortable treatment that is well tolerated. You may feel a little sensitivity at the point of application, though this can be minimised through the use of a topical numbing cream prior to treatment. If you have any concerns, please discuss this with us at your consultation and we will be happy to help alleviate your concerns.

Are there any side effects?

As with any injectable treatment, there is a possibility of some minor side effects. Most commonly, these may include: bruising, swelling, redness, tenderness, itching and sensitivity at the point of application. Any potential side effects will be discussed during a pre-treatment consultation. Any swelling will typically subside within around 48 hours and bruising can be easily concealed with makeup.

What result can I expect?

You can expect to see a reduction in the appearance of lines and wrinkles at the point of application and immediate surrounding area, giving you a more youthful look. We always aim to ensure that results appear natural as opposed to ‘frozen’, which is a common concern for people looking to undergo this treatment. The result will continue to develop after the treatment, and you will enjoy a refreshed and rejuvenated look to your upper face.

Dermal filler

With one quick treatment, you can restore volume and firmness to your skin, enhance facial contours, and improve the look of indented acne scars. Many topical anti-ageing products affect only the epidermis, but for truly amazing results, treatments must penetrate through this outer layer and target the cells of the dermis as well.

Side Effects of Facial Fillers

Fat-dissolving injections

How does it work?

We inject at various points across your problem area. The fat-dissolving product works to break down the membranes of the fat cells beneath the skin, causing them to become unstable and eventually flush out via the lymphatic system. This ‘flushing’ process may take around 6-8 weeks, at which point you’ll be able to enjoy your results! Fat-dissolving injections are designed for body contouring, not for weight loss.

Does it hurt?

Some mild discomfort may occur during treatment application due to the nature of this being an injectable treatment. Although discomfort is generally minimal, we can use a numbing cream to help with pain management should this be required.

Are there any side effects?

Fat-dissolving injections work by causing an inflammatory reaction, and therefore you may experience some swelling for up to 5 days post treatment. This is usually mild, and can be controlled using cool pads. Due to how the treatment works, you should not manage any side effects with anti-inflammatory medicines as this will counteract the treatment. You may notice some temporary reddening of the skin, or itching, but this is normal and will gradually reduce over a few days.

What result can I expect?

You can expect it to take approximately 2-3 weeks before you start to see a reduction in fatty deposits around the chin and jawline, giving a slimmer and less wobbly appearance to the face and helping to eliminate double chins and jowls. For larger areas, you will begin to notice the effects after 2-3 weeks but should allow up to 8 weeks for the final result to be apparent. Typically, 1-3 treatments will be required to achieve your desired result, but this will be discussed in your pre-treatment consultation along with your expectations. This treatment has a high patient satisfaction rate. We will only treat patients who are within 1 stone of their ideal body weight and around 3cm of pinchable fat, as this treatment is not intended as a weight loss solution.

How many treatments will I need?

For body treatments, 4-6 sessions.
For chin treatments, 1-3 sessions

Profhilo

Does it hurt?

Profhilo is administered through fine needles, meaning that is more comfortable than many injectable treatments. Popular with patients of all ages and concerns, Profhilo is a treatment that doesn’t usually cause too much discomfort, but we can also apply a topical numbing cream.

Are there any side effects?

You may experience a little stinging or, in very sensitive skin, some bumps at the point of injection. However, these will soon subside post treatment. Any potential side effects will be discussed at your pre-treatment consultation.

What result can I expect?

Profhilo is an extremely versatile treatment that tackles many conditions. Following your treatment, you can expect your skin to be fully rejuvenated and hydrated with a powerful glow. The ingredients in Profhilo are designed to work with you skin to give a lifting and tightening effect through stimulating the production of collagen and elastin. This means you will leave with an all-round refreshed look. Fine lines and wrinkles can also be eradicated with Profhilo. A fantastic treatment to combat crepey skin on the neck, we recommend Profhilo to many of our patients who are looking to achieve their ‘red carpet’ confidence.

Is it safe?

Profhilo boasts an exceptional safety record. Any concerns will be discussed at your pre-treatment consultation.

Eye rejuvenation treatment

As we age, the production of collagen and elastin in our skin becomes impaired and this can be a primary cause of many ageing-related symptoms. The skin around our eyes is particularly delicate. In the hollows under the eyes (tear troughs), the skin is very thin and decreased hydration causes it to appear darker and makes us look tired. The eyelids may also begin to sag, which makes our brows drop and our eyes look less wide and less alert, which are both characteristics associated with youth. Additionally, over time, repeated smiling, laughing and even talking – all perfectly normal day-to-day functions – can also contribute to wrinkles around the eyes as the muscles form crevices into which the skin settles and presents as a wrinkle.

The use of amino acids to replace these lost proteins and restore volume is our popular approach to a lot of these concerns.
