From around the age of 25 the first signs of aging start to become apparent on the surface of the skin. Fine lines appear first, and then over time wrinkles appear together with a loss of volume and a loss of density which all become more noticeable over time.
Dermal fillers are natural or synthetic gels that are injected into the skin to volumise, lift and improve the appearance of lines.
Hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring sugar chain molecule found in all skin and soft tissues throughout the body, identical across species. It attracts and binds water in the skin, providing volume and hydration, but also ‘cushioning’ and supporting collagen. They are manufactured and cross linked with proteins to produce a clear, sterile gel for injection directly into the skin to provide instant correction.
WILL IT HURT?
Many dermal fillers contain local anaesthetic to provide pain relief during the procedure. Additionally a topical anaesthetic cream or ice can be applied prior to treatment to numb the skin.The procedure may be uncomfortable but is not usually painful. Certain areas, such as the lips, are more sensitive.

Most people can continue with normal activities. Some will have some redness, pin- prick marks, swelling (particularly following a lip treatment) which should settle within a few days. Cold packs are provided to help alleviate swelling and arnica gel or tablets are recommended to reduce bruising.
Bruising and swelling may be more apparent the next day and can take up to 14 days to disappear. Tenderness should settle within 48 hours. After treatment it is expected that you will see an improvement straight away although due to initial swelling, the product may feel hard or lumpy or asymmetrical immediately afterwards. The results are best judged at a 2-week review appointment.
Depending on the product used and the area treated, results may last from 4 months to in excess of a year.
TYPES OF DERMAL FILLERS USED
This includes REVOLAX deep, REVOLAX fine and REVOLAX SUB-Q. This is a non-animal crosslinked HA filler, which boasts a highly consistent Monophysite structure and a low phase angle %. This means it works by providing volume but equally has a lower chance of migrating beyond the injection site.
JUVEDERM ULTRA & SMILE RANGES
The juvederm range is the worlds leading brand of hyaluronic acid (HA) fillers. This filler blends with the tissue underneath the skin to give a natural look and feel. Results with this filler can last up to 24months depending on treatment area and product chosen.
JUVEDERM VOLIFT Volift utilises Vycross technology which is a combination of low and high molecular weight HA. This enables the filler to provide effective, natural long lasting results of up to 15 months, alongside minimal swelling and bruising.
