Look & Feel Younger

Restylane and Juvederm are hyaluronic acid, a naturally existing substance found in the subcutaneous tissue of the skin, giving it the fullness and youthful appearance, and is used to fill out lines and wrinkles.  Treatments are performed by Dr Patel.  Lip fillers are becoming increasingly popular, whether to add subtle definition or volume.  Treatments are performed based on clients needs.

What about Enhancing the Lips with Lip Fillers?

Throughout the ages, the lips and mouth area have long been considered one of the most important features of the female face. Our lips and mouth are an indicator of our emotions and fuller lips have always been associated with youth and beauty.

As part of the natural ageing process, the composition of our lips and surrounding structures alter. From the peak of fullness in your 20’s the lips start showing changes; from between the ages of 30-40 along with other factors such as gravity, genetics and smoking, the mouth may appear to look ‘sad mouthed’ or drooping. It may even have lipstick bleed lines and flattening of the cupids bow all culminating in the lips looking less defined.

Questions & Answers

What does the treatment involve?

This treatment involves a series of very fine injections into the required area. Sometimes a cannula is used for volumising and also for treatments to the lip area to reduce the risk of bruising.

What areas can be treated?

It is mainly used to treat the naso-labial folds (the creases running from the side of the nose to the corner of the mouth), lip lines, very deep frown lines and lip contouring and enhancement. It can also be used for cheek enhancement. The newer trend is for global facial enhancement.

How many sessions will I need?

It usually lasts from 6-8 months but once the patient has had a few treatments, the longevity is greater. Each treatment should be at 6-8 monthly intervals.

Am I a suitable candidate?

If you have static wrinkles ( lines that appear at rest which do not usually improve with Botulinum Toxin) you are suitable for treatment using dermal fillers however,  if you have dynamic wrinkles which are lines that appear when you animate your face Botox may be a better option. The main Contra-indication of this treatment is pregnancy and breastfeeding, however, you may also be an unsuitable candidate if you have any infections in the treatment area, various muscle or blood disorders. If you are not sure if you are a suitable candidate please contacts the clinic for further advice.

What results can I expect?

Typically results should be seen immediately after injections with Restylane. After 2 weeks all the potential swelling and or bruising should be gone, with the end results.

Are there any side effects?

Potential side effects include pain at the injection site, infection, inflammation, swelling, redness, bleeding and bruising. Rarely you can get a delayed reaction with formation of a lump in the treated area what can be dealt with easily.
