What are Dermal fillers
Dermal fillers contain a natural substance called hyaluronic acid which is well known for its skin benefits, including alleviating dry skin, reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles and can even speed up healing. Hyaluronic acid is also taken in supplement form for a variety of conditions, especially those related to skin and joint health. Dermal fillers play an increasingly integral part in the correction of changes associated with skin aging. At We Do Aesthetics we reintroduce the hyaluronic acid back into your skin to combat these visual signs we often wish to remove.
What are the benefits?
The primary benefit of dermal fillers is that you can achieve these wonderful improvements in no time at all, even in your lunchbreak if you so wish.
The treatment itself is approximately ten minutes and needs no recovery time. It is easily accessible in any one of our locations.
The side effects you may experience as a result of a dermal filler treatment are minimal. There may be a little swelling or redness in the precise location of the treatment but even then, this should disappear within hours of the treatment.
This treatment is temporary however with a top up treatment you could be enjoying the benefits for over one year after the initial injection.
The hyaluronic acid used in our dermal fillers is a naturally occurring substance in the skin. Therefore, when used as a treatment they will feel natural beneath your skin. Just another reason to feel confident in your own skin, this subtle natural treatment will make you look younger and more radiant without any signs of having had any additional assistance.
Another advantage from this treatment is that it can assist you in finally saying goodbye to scars whilst boosting your body’s production of collagen. All the above factors will in turn increase your confidence in yourself and your appearance.
Any queries you have can be discussed during your consultation with us prior to treatment.
Cheek augmentation is a procedure which can help you gain strong facial contouring enhancing the mid face region, instant lift. Get the ‘model. high cheek bone look or simply restore the fullness which is lost with age.
One of the first areas of our face to suffer from the ageing process is our cheeks. We lose that plumpness, which leaves us feeling and looking older than we should. The perfect treatment to reintroduce this volume and sculpt your cheekbones is hyaluronic acid cheek fillers.
Why do we lose facial volume as we age?
Sick of your Hamster chin
What is a weak chin or a receding chin?
The chin is the raised prominence of the mandibular bone, composing the lowermost part of the face; for this reason, it is one of the primary components that determine facial shape.
A weak chin is when the lower jaw bone is either less developed which makes your chin project slightly backward toward your neck (chin recession), or the position of the lower jaw (mandible) is actually set back compared to the upper jaw (maxilla). This then creates a chin and jawline that looks like it inclines inward toward the body. The technical/scientific name for a weak chin is called retrogenia.
A weak chin can be a result of age and become more pronounced with age. This is because gradual and progressive bone resorption results in decreased mandibular height and reduced chin projection. This may change the balance between the lower third and upper two-thirds of the face.
If the height and buttress of the jawbone is reduced, the surrounding soft tissues become prone to laxity and yield increasingly to gravity, which is especially noticeable on the front half of the jawline and on the neck (double chin).
A weak chin sometimes creates an unfavourable and unbalanced facial appearance.
Generally, this is a cosmetic concern and should not affect the function of eating or speech.
Non-surgical Chin Augmentation
Non-Surgical Chin augmentation uses hyaluronic acid dermal filler injections, such as Teoxane Ultra Deep (which is part of the Teosyal range), as a safe, non-invasive alternative to surgical chin augmentation. The procedure involves injecting dermal filler into precise areas of the chin in order to increase the length, width or projection of the chin.
A non-surgical chin augmentation using the dermal fillers is a relatively safe technique that requires no anaesthesia, stitches or scars. The treatment can take anything from 15 to 25 minutes and involves very little pain, redness or downtime. Most patients go back to work the next day.
The Jawline Fillers treatment can help both men and women attain a more masculine or feminine jawline, respectively.
What’s a sagging jawline?
A well-defined jawline slowly changes with age. Due to aging, the jawline weakens. This is caused by volume loss. This is a result of a natural decrease in muscle and bone mass. The first signs become visible around your 30th. With some, there is even visible aging before being 30 years old. With a local filler treatment with hyaluronic acid, this process is easily reversed and life becomes enjawable again.
For the perfect pout or fuller lips we can help. With age our lips lose volume and pulpiness, here at We Do Aesthetics with our advanced lip augmentation we can give you that perfect pout, whether you are looking for ‘killer’ fuller lips or subtle changes you are at the right place. Why not try a dimple with the fullness in the lower lip.
Lip augmentation is a cosmetic procedure that can give you fuller, plumper lips.
These days, an injectable dermal filler is the most commonly used method of lip augmentation.
There are many types of dermal fillers that can be injected in your lips and around your mouth.
But the most common fillers today are products that contain substances similar to hyaluronic acid. Hyaluronic acid is a natural substance found in the body. It helps increase volume in your lips.
These types of dermal fillers are sometimes called “hyaluronic acid fillers.”
Collagen, once the most common dermal filler, is used less often today. The newer options are safer and the effects last longer.
Fat injections and implants are other methods to plump lips. But they aren’t used as much today because the results vary and there is a greater risk of side effects.
Uses of Hyaluronic Acid
Fillers Hyaluronic acid fillers can improve the appearance of your lips by adding:
The effects typically last around six months. After that more injections are needed to keep the volume of your lips.
The nasolabial fold is the deep crease running from either side of the nose down towards the corners of the mouth. This crease becomes more noticeable as part of the natural ageing process. Fat is lost from the cheeks, reducing skin volume and making this fold appear deeper. Repeated smiling or having a “big smile” may result in permanent, deep creases in this area.
What can be done?
Deep nasolabial folds can be corrected through injections of dermal filler into the surrounding area, restoring the lost volume and softening the appearance of these creases.
The goal of nasolabial fold injections is to even out the skin volume, leaving you with a smoother, refreshed-looking appearance.
What is a non-surgical nose job?
We know there are plenty of people out there who would like to alter the shape of their nose without undergoing full cosmetic surgery. If this sounds like you then non-surgical rhinoplasty – also known as ‘nose fillers’ or a ‘liquid nose job’ – might be the solution.
Using dermal filler, our Medical Aesthetic practitioners are able to subtly yet effectively change the appearance of the nose. One of the common complaints that fillers in the nose can address is a ‘hooked nose’. By injecting filler above and the below the bump, the practitioner is able to make it look much straighter.
Similarly, nose filler can be used to change the shape of the tip, making it look more defined or lifted based on the customer’s goals. Filler is injected into the end of the nose, and the practitioner can manoeuvre it into the desired shape.
What are the benefits of nose fillers over a traditional nose job?
The non-surgical method may be more preferable than a surgical nose job for several reasons. Firstly, it requires much less recovery time, with people usually able to return to work immediately after their treatment. While we recommend being careful with your nose in the weeks following the filler, you can generally resume most normal activities soon after.
Swelling and bruising is minimal with nose filler, and many of our patients find it a relatively pain-free treatment.
The results of non-surgical rhinoplasty are also temporary, which appeals to people who aren’t sure if they want to commit to full surgery. Finally, dermal fillers are a more affordable option for customers wanting to change the shape of their nose without spending the higher amounts of money needed for cosmetic surgery.
Also known as vertical ‘lipstick lines’, are the result of many years of smoking, sun damage and natural ageing. They can be static (present at rest) or active (present on contraction) and can appear above and/or below the lips in the distribution of the orbicularis oris muscle- a strap-like muscle around the mouth.
What can be done?
This area can be treated by a combination of both botox (to relax the muscle) and filler (to add volume that is lost) often with great, long-lasting results.
