As we age, our face can lose its youthful plumpness leaving us to look older than we actually are. The most common areas on the face to lose volume from are cheeks and lips and fine lines and wrinkles can appear causing a sunken appearance. Here at The Private Clinic we offer an ideal treatment to restore volume back into these areas and reduce the appearance of fines lines and wrinkles.
What is dermal filler?
Dermal Filler is made up of hyaluronic acid which is a natural substance found within your own body. The amount of hyaluronic acid that is found in the skin gradually begins to reduce as you age which can result in skin looking tired. Dermal filler injections work to reintroduce hyaluronic acid back into areas that are lacking which can include lips, mouth lines and cheeks.
What is cheek filler?
Cheek fillers help to create a youthful curve to the cheeks and give the appearance of strong facial contours. Dermal filler restores to the lost volume and provides a lifting effect to correct sunken cheeks and restores your face profile back to how it once was. Cheek fillers are also popular with younger patients who are looking to achieve a more defined appearance to their cheeks and facial profile.
What are lip fillers?
Dermal Lip fillers add volume to your lips helping to enhance your lips’ natural pattern to give them an overall pleasing and full appearance. Dermal filler restores the lost volume to thin lips as well as helping to define the borders of the lips giving them a more defined and plump shape.
What are chin fillers?
Dermal chin filler is a technique where dermal filler is injected into the chin to help reshape and contour the chin to enhance natural features and re-contour areas of concern. Dermal fillers are great at improving the shape, profile, projection and symmetry of the chin.
What are Under the eyes (Tear Trough) filler?
Tear trough filler is a specialist treatment aimed at reducing the dark area under the eye. Dark circles are actually caused by shadows forming under the eye due to shallowness in the area often caused by fat loss and thinning of the skin over time. Dermal filler gel is very carefully injected, either directly into the depression or just beneath it to increase volume and plump up the area whilst smoothing the contours between eye and cheek.
What else are dermal fillers used for?
As well adding volume to the lips, cheek and chin, dermal fillers can also be used for;
- Lip Lines (Smoker’s Lines)
- Nose to mouth lines (Naso-labial folds)
- Nose (Non-Surgical Nose Job)
- Mouth to Chin lines (Marionette lines)
- Sagging Jowls
