Getting older is something none of us relish the idea of and we all want to feel confident in our appearance, no matter what age we are.
Aging can be a difficult concept to accept. For many years we have taken our youthful skin for granted and it’s only when we start to age that we realize what a blessing youth is.
Many of us will spend a fortune in our lifetime trying out various new lotions and potions. Some of us will opt for surgery to turn back the aging clock. But one of the most commonly used procedures nowadays, is Botox® and dermal fillers, also known as wrinkle filler injections. Let’s take a look at the latter and how wrinkle filler injections can take years off a person’s age.
How do wrinkle filler injections work?
As you get older, the natural collagen breaks down in your skin and causes it to sag. This can create fine lines on your face, particularly around the nose and mouth area. Dermal filler injections target fine lines and wrinkles, smoothing out your skin and creating a youthful glow.
Dermal filler itself is made from a specialist sugar gel, also known as hyaluronic acid, which is also found in natural human collagen. The filler is biodegradable and the results are temporary. Although 96% of our patients return for further treatment, if you’re new to injectable wrinkle fillers, you can try the procedure for yourself and then if you decide not to return for further treatment, then your body will break it down over time.
Here at Look Lovely London, we use Emervel and Restylane, both of which are designed to give you the most natural looking result.
What’s involved in the procedure?
Once you’ve had your initial consultation with one of our specialist doctors, you will undergo a series of a few small injections. Some patients experience minor discomfort when the needles are inserted but if you’re particularly sensitive to pain, we will provide you with a numbing cream which can be applied to the treated area before the injections are administered.
The results are almost instant but the filler will settle over the following ten days or so which is when you’ll see the results in full effect. Results last from six to twelve months, depending on which area has been treated.
How much do wrinkle filler injections cost?
If you’re looking for injectable wrinkle fillers, London is home to many clinics to choose from and prices will vary from clinic to clinic. We always advise our patients to do their research so they feel totally sure that they are in the best hands and are not being overcharged.
We operate a fair and honest pricing system for our patients. We offer a 10% introductory discount for anyone new to dermal fillers, so if you’re interested in finding out more about that, just speak to a member of our team.
Our pricing strategy is based on how much filler is used to treat the area. For one syringe of filler, prices start at £280 and for two syringes, prices start at £460, but this is all based on individual requirements. We don’t believe in giving our patients more treatment than they need and our priority is that our patients leave our clinic looking completely natural, so we’ll always review your treatment plan before giving you an exact quote.
Are there any side effects associated with dermal filler?
Most patients do not experience any side effects from dermal fillers, with the exception of redness and swelling around the treated area but this will usually disappear within about ten minutes of treatment.
Occasionally a patient may experience some minor bruising to the treated area but this can be easily covered with concealer and doesn’t last longer than a few days.
If you’re new to dermal fillers and you’d like a bit more information, book a free, no-obligation consultation with one of our skilled team. They can establish a treatment plan with you, assess which areas to treat and explain a bit more about what to expect from the procedure and the results.
