Dermal Fillers

Dermal fillers can provide you will a more youthful and fresh appearance. They are injectable products either synthetic or natural which are used to help restore volume and structure to the face. They can also be used to soften lines and wrinkles. At Iuvenis Aesthetics we only use reversible fillers which are made from high levels of hyaluronic acid (HA). HA is found naturally in our body and diminishes as we age.They are injected under the skin to give a more youthful or enhanced look. HA has an immediate effect as it attracts water which helps to improve the skins appearance texture and hydration.

Dermal fillers generally take around 30-45 minutes to administer. Your medical practitioner will discuss your thoughts and assess your face to decide the best treatment plan for you. They will then determine the injection site to achieve the best results for you. Topical anaesthetic is generally applied 30 minutes before the treatment. The practitioner will then administer the dermal fillers through several injections. You can usually feel the initial injection but the procedure shouldn’t be painful as most dermal fillers contain lidocaine products. You can return to work or day to day activities immediately.

During your consultation, our Nurse will provide an in depth assessment of your face. We will talk through any risks and you will be fully informed of any potential risks/side effects. Dermal fillers used in the correct hands are safe for use in the face as they contain a natural skin compound (Hyaluronic acid). Medical treatments are at their safest when performed by medically qualified professionals that have done extensive training within cosmetic medicine.

Dermal fillers work instantly. It’s normal to have swelling following treatment and the area should be left alone to settle. Final result can be seen within two weeks.

Dermal fillers can be used for a variety of reasons such as replacing lost volume in the face, contouring the cheeks, creating definition or volume to the lips,  sculpting the jawline or strengthening the chin.  When using Dermal fillers we will always examine your face in all profiles to ensure that we working within the dimensions of beauty.

Around 12 months, however this depends on the product used and is variable between each individual. The treatment provides long lasting results, but it is not permanent.

Dermal Filler Aftercare

The effect of your treatment is immediate. Filler can be slightly mobile for a few hours following the procedure so it is important that you keep facial movements minimal and do not rub or massage the area for the rest of the day.

Immediately after treatment it is quite normal for there to be slight redness, swelling and tenderness around the treated area. These signs will gradually disappear in a few days. Wash and dry your face with gentle patting movements.

It is possible that you may be able to feel or see where the product has been placed for about two weeks following treatment. As the filler gradually incorporates into the matrix of your skin, these signs will lesson. If you have had stronger, more uplifting filler, it is possible that the filler will be palpable for longer.

Please avoid makeup for the rest of the day to prevent the introduction of infection to the injection sites.

Do not have facial beauty treatments or massage for two weeks following treatment and avoid exposure to strong sunlight, very cold temperatures, saunas and solariums for the same length of time.

If there is discomfort following treatment you may take paracetamol. Avoid the use of aspirin, ibuprofen or other anti-inflammatory drugs as these may increase the risk of bruising.

Lip treatment generally takes a little longer to settle and may feel tender and appear uneven- this will gradually resolve itself within the first week and should not affect the final result.

There is a chance of bruising with filler treatments, caused both through the injection and sometimes through the pressure of the product on capillaries under the skin. Bruising may be apparent at the time of treatment or may develop later and may be anything from mild to moderate or occasionally heavy. This is an unfortunate side effect of filler treatments. Bruising will subside in time and the use of arnica cream can sometimes be helpful. Cool compresses for two days following treatment can help. After two days, warm compresses will encourage blood supply to remove traces of the bruise.

Although your treatment result is immediate the overall result will look much better in about two weeks when any trauma has subsided and the plumping effect of the product has really started to take effect.
