Fillers are popular treatments used for softening wrinkles, laughter lines, facial lines and wrinkles caused naturally by ageing or sun exposure. Combined with a local anaesthetic, dermal fillers are injected into the skin to give your face a natural volume, leaving your skin completely hydrated and youthful.
Popular areas to add volume and fullness to include the cheeks, nose to mouth lines and mouth to chin lines.
Here at Saltash Aesthetics we use Juvéderm®. It is made from biocompatible, biodegradable materials and contains Hyaluronic Acid, which replaces the naturally existing substance in your skin that repairs damaged tissue.
All our treatments are carried out by our experienced nurse in our Saltash based clinic and is tailored to your specific needs. All treatments come with a free 2 week review.
WHAT IS A 'VIAL' AND HOW MANY DO I NEED FOR MY TREATMENT?
A vial is a measurement of the filler used during treatment. Typically, treatment for nasolabial folds (nose to mouth lines) requires 1-2 vials, marionette lines require 1 vial, lips require 1 - 2 vials and cheeks require 2 vials.
Your treatment goals will be discussed during consultation and prior to your treatment taking place.
How long do they last?
Results begin to show immediately after treatment and can last up to 12 months, depending on the product used and the area treated.
Does it hurt?
This is very individual. It may involve some light pain or discomfort. We can use a topical anaesthetic to numb the area completely and the product contains lidocaine.
Afterwards there may be some swelling or bruising. The swelling fades within 48 hours; the bruising can take up to a fortnight to fade. Again this varies from person to person. After care advice will be given to help minimise this.
Are they safe?
Absolutely, when administered correctly by a medical practitioner. Safety is our number one priority, and we conduct regular training to keep our skills up-to-date. Your treatment is conducted by a highly qualified nurse.
