What are Fillers?
Are made from synthetic hyaluronic acid which is a naturally occurring substance in the body. The amount and quality of hyaluronic acid your body produces diminishes over time during the ageing process.
The injection of fillers such as JuvedermR and RestylaneR are available at different strengths for different parts of the face ie Mr Lambe uses different fillers for the lips and the naso labial fold (lines from the nose to the mouth) to mimic nature.
Are usually excellent and are instant!
Lines disappear and/are greatly reduced giving a fresher, more youthful appearance.
Fillers can be added bit by bit to get the result you want and Mr Lambe will sculpt the area(s) to give you a natural looking result.
FAQ ABOUT FILLERS
Below are some common FAQ’s about Fillers.
What is the price of fillers?
All procedures at Reflect Clinic are unique to you. To find out a price for fillers please book a consultation and discuss your needs with our expert surgeon, Mr Gerard Lambe.
You should not have this procedure if
You are overweight, with a BMI of over 32, smoke or vape, are in bad health and are taking anti-coagulant medication or are diabetic.
What are Fillers?
Fillers are made of natural and synthetic solutions developed to inject into the skin to restore a youthful appearance. This is in the form of a soft gel containing stabilised hyaluronic acid.
Hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring substance that helps to hydrate and add volume to skin. It is broken down by the body and is constantly replaced. As we get older, the replacement mechanism reduces so we get drier and less plumped up skin.
It can be used to treat ageing and to alleviate arthritic joints. It is long lasting, but NOT permanent.
What are the benefits of fillers?
Treatment usually takes around 20 minutes, however, the results can be seen instantly!
The results are natural looking and do not affect your facial expressions so you can achieve subtle changes as you age to plump up areas such as fine lines which give a more youthful appearance.
What are the risks of fillers?
Product related reactions are very rare. However, there are some injection related reactions which may occur but these generally calm down within a week of lip injection eg redness, swelling, pain, itchiness, bruising or tenderness.
All skin injection procedures have a small risk of infection.
How is it done?
The areas to be treated are cleaned with alcohol wipes and then tiny amounts of filler are injected into specific areas. This could be in between the brows, around the eyes, in the lips or around the mouth.
How long until I see results?
The results can be seen instantly! And over 30 million people across the world have been successfully treated.
How long does the treatment last?
Facial treatments can last up to 12 months and lip enhancements usually last about 6 months.
Is it painful?
Generally no pain relief is required when injecting into the skin to reduce lines, however, an anaesthetic cream can be applied in some cases if you are particularly sensitive in areas such as the lips where anaesthesia is recommended before treatment.
What should I do before treatment?
Remove makeup on the area(s) to be treated and avoid:-
- Taking vitamin E for two weeks prior
- Ibuprofen (eg brand names Advil, Motrin, Brufen)
