DERMAL FILLERS

LIP AUGMENTATION

This quick procedure creates beautiful, fuller, yet natural-looking lips, helping to accentuate your smile and achieve a more beautiful symmetry to the face. Lip enhancement procedures are often sought as people age and thinning lips become more prominent however can also be used in younger clients to improve the ratio of the lips in comparison to other facial features. Lip enhancement safely and seamlessly restores lost volume and moisture, using lip fillers that contain the body’s own natural material, hyaluronic acid.

CHEEK AUGMENTATION

Cheek enhancement produces the sought-after “high cheekbones” look and full rounded cheeks associated with youth and beauty. As we age, we tend to lose volume in the cheek area. By replacing this volume, the face is lifted, and we can create a more sculpted + plump cheekbone region.

Cheek filler products are injected under the surface of the skin in small amounts with a very fine needle, giving natural volume and structure. This also removes the appearance of lines and wrinkles, enhancing facial shape.

NON-SURGICAL RHINOPLASTY (NOSE JOB)

A non-surgical rhinoplasty is a corrective treatment to straighten the nose. We often see patients who describe that the appearance, humps, and bumps on their nose, or drooping tip affects their confidence, self-esteem, and wellbeing. For those patients, correcting a pre-existing deformity significantly improves their self-esteem. This procedure involves using a dermal filler made of hyaluronic acid which naturally occurring and non-animal-based.

TEAR TROUGH TREATMENT (UNDER EYES)

The cause of the dark circle can be hereditary, stress, weight loss related, or age related and tends to occur where loss of volume in the eye area, and in the cheek, area leads to a sunken hollow eye socket and a deep indent where the lower eyelid meets the cheeks. This is called a ‘tear trough’. Dermal fillers specifically made for the under-eye area elevation and soften the appearance of tear troughs creating a brighter, fresher wide-awake look.

Tear trough treatment involves placement of dermal filler under the eye. The dermal fillers we use are made of naturally occurring hyaluronic acid which is non animal based in origin. When placed in the under-eye area they elevate a sunken tear trough and brighten dark circles.

Where there is loss of volume in the tissues below the tear trough, replacement of this lost volume can also improve the appearance of the tear troughs, and this is called an indirect tear trough method. An assessment is always carried out to ascertain your requirements and decide on the best approach to suit you.

CHIN/JAW RESHAPING

The accurate placement of an appropriately selected hyaluronic acid (HA) dermal filler at the mandibular angle, in the chin and the peri-jowl region can recreate an aesthetically youthful and structured jawline. To complement this treatment fully, it is recommended to re-volumizing the upper and middle thirds of the face first, providing superior volumetric support to the jawline. The key areas to consider are the temples, cheeks and preauricular regions.

It is important to recreate the angular contours as the face transitions inferiorly from the jawline to the neck. In contrast to the mid-face, where soft transitions make for the aesthetical ideal, the jawline should demonstrate relatively sharp and angular transitions to the neck, as a sharp jawline frames the lower third of the face.

To create this look, a high G prime filler is used to accentuate desired angulations and shadowing. Furthermore, filler with good soft tissue integration is required to provide elevation and superior support.

NASOLABIAL/MARIONETTE LINE CORRECTION

Dermal filler is the most common treatment for nose to mouth (nasolabial) and marionette lines. Using a medium-density filler, the lines can be treated directly. However, the problem commonly lies higher up in the mid-face region. As mid-face volume is lost as we age (especially in the cheeks), the face tends to be pulled down with gravity. By replacing volume higher up, this can improve the appearance of lines and wrinkles in the lower face and is usually the treatment which is suggested first when a client is unhappy with the appearance of lines lower down on the face. If lines/wrinkles are still present after addressing volume loss higher up, it is then usually suggested to treat the lower face using hyaluronic acid.
