Dermal Fillers

Dermal Fillers Treatments at Sensational Smiles, Carshalton, Sutton

Restore your youth with our high-quality dermal fillers in Sutton.

As we age, we naturally lose collagen and fat from our skin tissue and this manifests as loss of volume in the face. As a result of yearly loss, the cheeks may flatten out, causing the appearance of sagging jowls. The effects can be exacerbated by smoking, sun damage, alcohol consumption and a poor diet.

In order to remain youthful in appearance, the skin requires adequate stores of collagen, elastin and other vital substances. The collagen works like scaffolding and it supports the face. Once you lose it, the tissues become thinner and you see more wrinkles, folds, and fine lines.

The way that we address the cosmetic concerns associated with age has changed significantly since the development of injectables like dermal fillers.

Dermal fillers are products formulated to restore a more youthful appearance by replacing volume and softening lines around the eyes, nose, and mouth. Dermal fillers for laugh lines and smile lines are very common. Fillers may also be used to enhance the fullness of the lips and cheeks.

How do dermal fillers help?

Dermal fillers are a synthetically made material, which is usually derived from hyaluronic acid.

Hyaluronic acid is found naturally within our bodies and it acts as a lubricant by attracting and storing water. The fillers mimic this property to restore the loss of volume caused by ageing.

Are they safe?

Yes, fillers are considered very safe. Many thousands of patients have been treated with very little reported side effects.

As your body naturally produces and stores hyaluronic acid, there are minimal complications. Most complications are due to the injections rather than the filler material, and these can include minor swelling, bruising, and bleeding. They normally last up to three days at the most.

Allergies are very rare and can cause redness, itching and swelling.

Does it hurt?

During the procedure, we normally apply either topical (cream) anaesthetic to make it comfortable for you or local anaesthetic to freeze the lip so that you experience zero discomfort.

How long does it last?

This depends upon the material that we use. For finer lines and wrinkles, we use a product that is thinner and has finer particles, and the results normally last around 6-12 months. For areas with larger amounts of loss of volume, we would use a product with thicker particles, which can last up to 18 months.

Where can fillers be used?

We only use the best products….

At our dermal fillers clinic, we understand the importance of efficiency when it comes to treating our patients' faces and their smiles.

The dermal filler types that we use have been proven in the areas of safety and longevity.

WHAT TO EXPECT

Before commencing treatment, we perform a thorough consultation and evaluation of the area of concern. In some cases, we may recommend that dermal fillers be combined with Botox® to successfully achieve the desired outcome. Fillers and Botox® make wonderful companions, as each is designed for a specific result.

One of the reasons that injectables are so popular is because treatment takes less than an hour to complete and requires no recovery period. To improve your comfort, we apply a topical anaesthetic that will numb the surface so all you feel is a slight pinch, if anything at all, from your treatment.

After we inject the necessary amount of product beneath the skin, we will gently massage it to disperse effects evenly through the area of concern. As the filler moves through tissues, a slight sting may be felt. This is only a momentary discomfort.

Results can be noticed immediately after treatment. As the filler settles in the tissues beneath the skin, its full effects will become apparent. Typically, this occurs within a week. We suggest that patients avoid alcohol consumption and smoking for the first 24 hours after their treatment. Vigorous exercise, sun exposure, and sun beds should be avoided for two days and the area treated should not be massaged for five days. As much as possible, you should also avoid sleeping on the area we treat for five days. Makeup can be worn as soon as the day after treatment.

Every person metabolizes substances differently. In most cases, results from dermal fillers will remain for 6 to 12 months. With repeat treatments, the skin can remain looking vibrant and youthful year after year.

Considerations

Women who are pregnant or breast feeding should not get dermal filler treatments. Other exclusions include active cold sores, auto-immune conditions, active skin infection and certain skin disorders. If you have had laser treatment or a chemical peel, you may schedule dermal filler treatment six weeks later.

Dermal fillers are used by the experienced staff at Sensational Smiles in Sutton to promote youthfulness on the outside that you feel on the inside.
