DERMAL FILLERS

Dermal fillers


  Dermal fillers are used as an effective treatment for deep lines and wrinkles. They can help reduce deep lines and wrinkles, fill hollows, enhance sunken cheeks and smooth the contours of your face. Anti-ageing facial fillers are the non-surgical way to achieve younger looking skin and provide volume for tired lines and wrinkles. As your skin ages, it loses the collagen that helps shape and support it. Natural lines and wrinkles deepen. Sun exposure, smoking, air pollution and even stress can all age your appearance. The face can also begin to lose volume giving sunken cheeks and a ‘dragged down’ appearance.

What are Dermal Fillers?

We use a range of premium dermal fillers products that can help you achieve the desired result. It will depend on the area being treated as to which product our qualified practitioners would recommend as the most suitable. Facial fillers can plump up your skin, smooth wrinkles and fill out deep lines by replacing the collagen lost due to natural ageing or skin damage. Premium dermal fillers are injected in small controlled doses just under the surface of skin of the area to be treated. This fills out the sunken areas and lines to give a smoother, firmer and more refreshed appearance. Depending on the type of dermal filler used, results can last from 6 to 24 months.  

How does it work?

Hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring substance within the body that attracts water to it, hydrating our skin and promoting softness and fullness. As we age our own hyaluronic acid diminishes and therefore once injected, dermal fillers work by replacing your depleted hyaluronic acid.  

What does the process involve?

Small amounts of dermal filler are injected directly into the skin using an ultra fine needle. After cleansing the area to be treated, a numbing cream will be applied. This ensures the injections administered by the qualified doctor or nurse will only cause minor discomfort. The gel administered helps to plump up the skin to smooth out lines and wrinkles. If the lips or facial contours are being treated, the filler adds volume, restores shape and gives a fuller, fresher appearance.  

How will I look like after the treatment?

Immediately after the treatment there may be some slight redness or mild swelling in the treated area. Lips tend to be more sensitive and swelling after lip fillers can last a few days. Delicate and experienced injecting skills means that the majority of our patients do not bruise after our filler treatments. If there is any residual redness after the treatment mineral make-up will be applied so you can return back to work or resume your normal daily activities immediately.  

How long does it take to see a result and how long does it last?

The treatment benefits can be seen instantly and will continue to improve over the next week as hyaluronic acid starts to attract moisture and plump out the lines, wrinkles or folds. On average fillers last 9-18 months, however the duration of the effect will depend on a person’s age, quality of skin, as well as general health and lifestyle.  

Can dermal fillers be removed?

In the unlikely event that a patient is unhappy with the results or has a reaction to the product, hyaluronic acid fillers can be dissolved with the injectable enzyme, hyaluronidase (hyalase).

Treatment Process

 

Your visit to Victoria Clinic

  • On arrival to Victoria Clinic all new patients will be asked to complete a confidential patient registration and medical history form and all existing patients will need to confirm if there have been any changes to their medical history or personal details since their last visit.

Your consultation

  • Your consultation will begin by listening to and understanding your concerns and requirements and discussing how best we can meet and exceed your expectations.
  • The various treatment options, together with the benefits and any potential risks of the treatment will be discussed.
  • You will have ample opportunity to ask questions during your consultation, which will be answered honestly and openly.

Can I have a consultation and treatment on the same day?

  • We appreciate that many of our patients have very busy schedules or travel a significant distance to attend our clinics. In addition, we often find that patients have done significant research regarding the treatment prior to their consultation. It is therefore possible to carry out a treatment such as dermal fillers immediately after the consultation.
  • If you think you may wish to proceed with the treatment after the consultation then please advise our staff at the time of booking your consultation so we can adjust your appointment time accordingly.
 

Pre-Treatment advice

  • As with all needle based treatments there is always a small possibility of bruising after your treatment. To reduce this risk we advise that you do not take anti-inflammatory pain-killers (e.g. Aspirin, Ibruprofen Neurofen, Voltarol, for at least a week before your treatment, as they all increase your tendency towards bleeding.
  • Alcohol will also increase your tendency towards bleeding therefore we advise you to refrain from alcohol for 24 hours.
  • Before your treatment you will be provided with a detailed consent form which you will be asked to read and sign.
 

Post-Treatment advice

  • We are extremely careful to ensure that any risk of bruising or redness is kept to a minimum, however, if required we will apply mineral make-up, so you can return back to work or resume your normal daily activities immediately.
  • You can drive yourself home or return to work immediately after the treatment.
  • Depending on the volume of product used or the extent of the treatment some minor swelling can occur after your treatment. Cold packs can be applied to the area to reduce this.
  • With lip treatments, swelling is to be expected. It is therefore wise to choose your treatment time appropriately, as there may be noticeable swelling or unevenness for a few days. The results directly after the treatment should therefore not be seen as the final results.
  • Patients who suffer from cold sores and who are having treatment around the mouth area may be recommended to take antiviral medication for a few days prior to and a few days post treatment, as there is a risk that the treatment may precipitate recurrence of cold sores/herpes virus.
  • For 2 weeks after the treatment you are advised to avoid extreme heat (solarium or sunbathing)
 

Review appointment

  • Review appointments are not routinely required after dermal filler treatment however we are always happy to see you again to discuss your treatment or if you have any concerns.
  • Occasionally, touch up procedures or additional treatment is requested by the patient in order to achieve optimal correction and maximise the duration of the results. Please note that dermal fillers are charged per syringe and therefore additional costs will be incurred if further product is required.
