The Non-Invasive Cosmetic Treatments Rivalling Surgery in 2020

In the very early days of cosmetic treatments, those who wished to reverse the signs of ageing, or replenish lost elasticity within the skin, may have felt that the only way to achieve obvious results was to opt for a surgical procedure.

Now, however, the tables have turned, and there are many innovative non-surgical options that offer an alternative to long and potentially painful recoveries, unnecessary anaesthesia, hospital stays, and the high costs of surgery.

The best results are those that are subtle, yet palpable; they will work with your natural beauty, facial structure, and distinctive characteristics, and they will not leave you squinting into the mirror, searching for signs of improvement. You will see a change, and others will notice it without jumping to the conclusion that you have ‘had work done’.

More than ever before, patients are realising the benefits of working in ways that harmonise with the body, rather than putting it through the stress and strain of surgical procedures. For example, using gentle fillers that are made of hyaluronic acid, the main component found in human collagen, to give natural plumpness and hydrate the skin without downtime.

How Do Non-Invasive Cosmetic Treatments Work?

No two treatments work in the same way; we are able to utilise a wide array of technologies and treatments, which can be used to target particular areas of the face and body in different ways.

A number of treatments seek to enhance the body’s stores of collagen, which is naturally lost as we grow older. Some will reintroduce it into the secondary layers of skin, while others work to stimulate the body into replenishing its own stores naturally.

Here are just a few of the most successful skin tightening and revitalising treatments, anti-wrinkle treatments, and non-surgical facelift treatments of 2020 – and how they are able to compete with the world of invasive cosmetic surgery.

The HIFU Non-Surgical Facelift

HIFU, high intensity focused ultrasound, is a relatively new skin tightening technique that achieves astounding results as a non-surgical facelift for patients bothered by wrinkles, sagging, lost-elasticity, and definition around the face and neck.

Unlike a traditional, surgical facelift, HIFU does not require any cuts to be made into the skin; instead, it works by rapidly heating the layers of skin that sit beneath the surface of your face. In response, the cells begin to produce collagen and reverse the signs of ageing from within.

Initial results will be noticeable straight away, though further progress will occur in the months that follow and should last for up to eighteen months. While some patients opt for a second procedure with the HIFU device around three months after their first appointment, this is not necessary for everyone.

Any discomfort is minimal and does not require a local anaesthetic or numbing injection. Since no incisions are made, there will be no scarring or bandaging required.

HIFU Treatment Cost: £600 – £1200, depending on the area being treated.

HIFU Recovery Period: None.

Dermal Fillers

Fillers are one of the most popular non-surgical face treatments for men and women of all ages, and they can be used to reintroduce fullness, smooth out fine lines, and improve definition in every area of the face. The fillers themselves are able to mimic human collagen; they can be targeted towards specific areas and produce incredibly natural-looking results that do not shift or migrate away from the treatment area.

This is a wonderful choice for anyone looking to reintroduce a touch of plumpness into areas of the face that may have begun to take on a hollow or ‘sagging’ appearance.

Dermal fillers do dissolve over time but, depending on the area being treated, they can last for up to eighteen months before requiring a top-up procedure. What’s more, the use of dermal fillers can prompt the body to begin replenishing its own collagen, which can mean that you will see lasting improvement, even as the fillers begin to dissolve.

Dermal fillers can also be used in a ‘liquid rhinoplasty’ and can smooth out the nose’s profile to create a straighter profile, and lift the tip without creating any incisions, or damaging the cartilage in the process.

While any discomfort will be minor, you can have a numbing cream applied to the area a short while before the injections are made.

Dermal Fillers Cost: Typically between £300 – £785, depending on the amount of filler needed, and what areas of the face are being treated.

Dermal Fillers Recovery Period: 1-2 weeks for minor bruising.

Profhilo

The benefits of hyaluronic acid are well-recognised, and almost half of the hyaluronic acid that occurs naturally in your body is contained within the skin tissue, just beneath the upper layer. It is responsible for hydrating the skin and maintaining a firm, youthful, healthy appearance.

Some of the most popular facial creams and serums on the market today boast hyaluronic acid as a key ingredient. Whilst these creams claim to deliver hyaluronic acid into the skin the actual amounts reaching the important lower layers are negligible.

Profhilo involves injections to target five specific areas in the cheeks and chin area, offering an excellent way to deliver the goodness into the right layers of the skin. This moisturising injection will rejuvenate tired or sunken skin, improving texture, and restoring vitality to your face. You’ll be glowing 2 weeks after the treatment.

Unlike dermal fillers, Profhilo will diffuse beneath the skin. This process will occur shortly after the procedure has been completed and will enable the benefits to be felt across a wider area. There will be a slight recovery time as the small ‘lumps’ caused by this diffusion dissipate, but this will typically disappear within 24 hours.

Profhilo Cost: £500 for two spaced four weeks apart.

Profhilo Recovery Time: 3 – 24 hours.

The PDO Thread Lift

The collagen that we begin to lose as we pass our mid-twenties is necessary for maintaining firmness and structure within the face. By the age of thirty, this change and loss of collagen will begin to be apparent with sagging and the appearance of jowls.  PDO thread lift offers a remarkable alternative to surgery and it can reposition structures back to the more youthful days, and boost collagen within the face.

Rather than making incisions into the skin, incredibly thin threads can be inserted just beneath the surface layer to create a fine, supportive ‘mesh’ that supports the skin’s natural elasticity. It will also encourage the skin to produce more collagen as a result, creating further support.

The threads can be placed in a number of different positions, depending on the results you would like to achieve. They dissolve after around six months, but the results remain for between one year and eighteen months.

PDO Thread Lift Cost: Typically between £350 – £850, depending on the area being treated.

PDO Thread Lift Recovery Time: A week to ten days, for bruising.

Aqualyx Fat Dissolving Injections

Despite the proliferation of innovative new facial treatments, many people are left wondering whether liposuction is the only effective treatment available to shift small ‘pockets’ of fat.

Aqualyx is a gentle, non-invasive alternative to liposuction, so avoids anaesthesia and a prolonged – and potentially painful – recovery time. These injections can be performed at the clinic within 20 minutes and may be used to dissolve pockets of fat in the thighs, abdomen, arms, and the chin area.

The primary ingredient in Aqualyx, deoxycholic acid, is a naturally occurring substance capable of dissolving fat membranes and prompting those stubborn areas to break down gradually. While it may require more treatments than a single liposuction procedure, typically up to 3 sessions it will also lead to tighter, firmer results than liposuction is able to offer.

Aqualyx Cost: For the chin, £350 for the initial session. For areas of the body, £450 for the initial session. Subsequent sessions are discounted.

Aqualyx Recovery Time: One week without strenuous activity as bruising/swelling eases, and three more weeks for a complete recovery.

The Look Lovely London Patient Promise

Anti-Wrinkle Injections

Injections involving the botulinum toxin are incredibly popular. They can be used to target many areas within the face and neck known to suffer the most from the visible signs of ageing. It works by blocking the signals to the muscles in the face to contract, therefore reducing the ‘tug’ on the skin. Your face will feel smoother and tighter with less fine lines appearing.

Results can last for up to six months and take one to two weeks to become apparent. You won’t wake up and have a completely smooth face, the results gradually develop over 14 days giving more natural changes. Some of the most bothersome areas, such as the delicate wrinkles around the eyes and strong lines in-between the eyebrows as well as ageing muscles in the neck  (platysmal bands) can be targeted in order to effectively ‘reverse’ the signs of ageing.

The procedure itself does not require any downtime, and you can return to work immediately after, although slight bruising may occur at the site of the injection.

Anti-Wrinkle Injections Cost: Between £175- 380 depending on the area being treated.

Anti-Wrinkle Injections Recovery Time: Minimal to no recovery time needed. The results are seen at 2 weeks.

How to Find the Right Clinic

There have been many incredible innovations within the world of non-surgical face treatments and skin-tightening procedures, with revolutionary new techniques and technologies offering natural and safe results for patients.

This is fantastic news for anyone seeking an alternative to surgery, but it also means that doing your due diligence, and avoiding practitioners who have invested in the equipment – but not the extensive training necessary for producing the best results – is more important than ever before.

The right clinic for you will be one that is backed by years of experience and training, excellent results, and a great track record in performing procedures without complications.

Our practice is owned and led by Dr. Davina Wilson, who is highly respected within the fields of medicine and cosmetic treatments. With over 10,000 successful procedures to date and a strong dedication to advanced practices and training at the clinic, patients can feel confident that their visit will leave them feeling happy, healthy, and with glowing skin.

 

How to Achieve Natural Results with Dermal Fillers

Long gone are the days when ‘getting work done’ was synonymous with surgery, or extreme transformations that compromised the face’s natural contours, structure, and beauty.

The vast majority of us do not want our cosmetic treatments to speak for themselves. We want gentle yet tangible results. We also want those results to work with our natural beauty, maintain our facial structure, and give off an air of good health, youthfulness, and vitality that age and stress may have begun to undermine.

Fortunately, revolutionary developments in the world of non-surgical cosmetic procedures are designed with this nuance in mind; they seek to revive lost collagen and structure, and to rejuvenate the face in a way that screams “long weekend in St Tropez”, rather than “overnight stay and six weeks’ recovery”.

With that in mind, achieving the best results still relies on you choosing an excellent practitioner who understands the subtleties of facial anatomy, and holds the wealth of experience necessary to realise the full benefit dermal fillers can offer.

Dr Davina Wilson and the team have considerable experience in offering patients the best outcome from their procedures. Here are a few of the ways dermal fillers can be used to achieve natural results.

anti Wrinkle Injections

What Are Dermal Fillers?

Dermal fillers are an incredibly popular injectable solution of hyaluronic acid, which is a substance that occurs naturally within the body – and particularly within the skin’s collagen stores, where it can create a firmness, elasticity, and a smoother texture.

Unfortunately, as we age, this collagen is gradually lost, which is why we all begin to experience visible changes in our faces, from fine lines and wrinkles to sagging, and a more hollow, undefined appearance. This process begins from the age of around twenty-five, but it tends to become more obvious in our thirties.

By introducing this hyaluronic acid back into targeted areas within the face through a series of non-invasive injections, we can offer patients significant, natural results that reverse the signs of ageing, and add plumper, more youthful look back into the face.

Dermal fillers can be used to improve lost depth around the delicate eye area (tear troughs), to smooth out wrinkles that appear along the nose to mouth area (nasolabial folds), or restore cheek contouring. They can also be used to create greater definition around the chin, jawline, and temples, and add more fullness back into the lips.

They can also be used as an effective alternative to the surgical rhinoplasty, and offer a non-invasive option for anyone looking to ‘smooth out’ any bumps in the bridge of their nose.

Dermal fillers typically last for up to 18 months, but returning for yearly ‘top-up’ treatments often encourages the body to begin to produce more of its own natural collagen over time.

Remember that Less is More

It is a common misconception among new patients and inexperienced practitioners alike that achieving obvious results requires a large amount of filler.

In reality, remarkable results can be achieved with very little filler, sometimes only 1-2 ml. When treating lips at the clinic, we use 1ml, which is 1/5th of a teaspoon. However, this amount can give lips a noticeably plumper more contoured look. We always avoid the trout pout or sausage over-filled look.

Capturing your natural beauty does not need to rely on large quantities of filler – or any other cosmetic treatment or surgery, for that matter. The right approach is much more nuanced and requires a great deal more finesse than using as much filler as possible in problematic areas.

Consider Your Entire Face – Not Just the Specific Area That Bothers You

We are all guilty of occasionally standing a little too close to the mirror, and scrutinising every part of our faces individually – looking for those imperfections that, under bright lighting and intense magnification, make us unhappy.

Other people, however, do not look at us in the same way. They see the entirety of our face, from its shape and structure to the natural flow of our features.

As such, focussing your attention on improving one area of your face is not the way to achieving the most natural results. Those experienced in performing these procedures have the right eye for understanding facial anatomy, and how best to work with your face as a whole, rather than as a collection of separate pieces.

An example of taking a more holistic approach to assessing the face is when we focus on the nose to mouth lines ( nasolabial folds). These folds develop as soft tissue and structures from around the mid-face area and cheeks have dropped down. If the practitioner only focuses on injecting filler in the grooves, the actual cause root of the problem (the sagging from above) has not been treated, which can lead to short-lasting or unnatural results. The experienced practitioner knows the most important areas in the face to treat to support other facial structures and create a lift.

Any procedure needs to be approached from a broader perspective – one that understands both the science and the artistry necessary for maintaining balance, and ensuring that you feel comfortable with the results.

Remember that Not All Fillers are Created Equal…

Owing to the incredible popularity of filler injections, there is a huge variety of products on the market – many of which will vary drastically in price, and the nature and quality of the ingredients used. While many will be perfectly safe and capable of producing good results, others may not have been created under strict conditions for quality control and hygiene and could cause significant problems for you if they are injected into your face.

Any good practice will utilise only the highest quality products on the market. We source our fillers from leading companies, including Luminera, Merz and Galderma. These products are extensively tested, 100% vegan, and subject to stringent quality control to ensure that every patient is kept safe and that their investment into their appearance is not wasted.

Respected clinics will always value the safety of their patients, and will invest in high-quality fillers to ensure that the results live up to your expectations.

…And neither are practitioners

Dermal fillers are a fantastic option for anyone unhappy with a lack of volume, elasticity, firmness or definition in their face. Still, they require a great deal of skill and understanding from your practitioner, and this proficiency is not something that you will find everywhere.

Achieving natural results is dependent on you putting your trust into the hands of practitioners who understand the ins and outs of the procedure itself, and who hold an impeccable track record of performing this treatment on patients who were pleased with the results. Dr. Wilson also trains other doctors in advanced aesthetics as she has 11 years of injecting experience.

Perform your due diligence by checking out honest client reviews, before and after photographs, and taking a look at the certifications that the practice holds. If they have managed to build up a loyal clientele, then this is an excellent sign that they are consistently meeting the high expectations of their customers, and that they are trusted and respected within the community.

 

Book a Consultation Ahead of Your Appointment

Dr Davina Wilson

Any worthwhile clinic will ensure that you are going into the process with your eyes open and that you understand what you should expect to achieve from the procedure. There, you will be able to discuss any concerns or questions and explain to your practitioner what results you would like to see.

Similarly, they will be able to take a good look at your facial anatomy, listen to your thoughts, and explain to you what they believe they will be able to achieve during your first procedure, and never over-sell.

Rushing into any cosmetic procedure – whether it is dermal fillers or a four-hour surgery – is never advisable, and your doctor will not want to proceed with the treatment before they are confident that you are realistic about the results and ready for the procedure itself.

If your practitioner is willing to rush straight into performing the treatment, then they will have skipped many important steps. In a way, this is akin to going into the procedure blind; they may inject too much, or focus too closely on one specific area without considering your entire face. We always carry out a free consultation before a treatment.  You are encouraged to take time, if you need, before booking in for the procedure knowing all your options.

As with any procedure, the value of the results lies in the preparation as much as it does the treatment itself. Natural results are achieved through a certain amount of finesse, and a level of care which is lost when the practitioner rushes through the treatment.

There’s Something About Cheek Filler

Ladies and gents, it’s June!

During the glorious gleam of 16 hour days, it’s time to crown yourself as the most beautiful bride or wedding guest this side of the summer solstice and pop into Look Lovely London for another signature treatment…

Cheek fillers. 

As Look Lovely London’s anointed Mystery Client, this was the first procedure I ever did at the clinic; the one that “brought me into the fold,” so to speak.

Why the cheeks you may ask?

Well, the first most dramatic signs of ageing I had in my 30s, consisted of a gradual and general hollowing of my outer and mid-face. In my 20s, I already had a thin face, so when I matured and lost even more volume around there, it was my priority to get it tended to as soon as possible.

Of course, for all you alternative face shapes out there, you might not be experiencing quite as much fat loss in the cheeks…

That said, you also might find yourself looking in the mirror one morning under, ahem, less than flattering lights, with a seriously “weary” and saggy visage staring back…

Especially when you compare yourself to those perky photos of you partying on a beach in Ibiza a few years ago.

Not to worry, the Look Lovely London cheek boost to the rescue! 

Cheek filler suits women of all generations.

After draping myself majestically over Dr. Wilson’s couch feeling, I was happily surprised that after a bit of ice pressed to the area the injections were minimally painful. 

Numbing cream was offered but, after the first session, I didn’t even find I needed it.

That’s because the cheeks are perhaps the least sensitive part of the face. 

Dr. Wilson analysed my facial contour and let me know where the filler would be injected, selecting the best area to naturally augment.

This was great, seeing as cheeks usually require more filler than other parts and you want to know you’re getting the best value for your new beautiful, model cheekbones!

Yes, under Dr. Wilson, I felt I was really being tailored to rather than undergoing some generic procedure that might not suit me or end up looking majorly unnatural. 

Speaking of, I instantly felt a natural plumping of the cheeks, while the procedure was being performed and…

Hey presto, looking into the mirror after, I can safely say cheek filler had the most instant and impactful result on my face than all of the procedures I’d done or would do in the future. 

“Filling the gaps” of mid-face has pretty much taken the last 5 to 10 years off.  

Oh and, even if there was a slight residual of a prick or tiny bruise, it was easily excused as just a spot and/or efficiently covered up after with concealer. 

I could return to daily duties, unabashedly, with people already commenting and wondering why I looked so good. 

“So good.” 

Always a nice thing to get complimented on in the romantic season of nuptials and summer festivals. 

The final thing to know is that cheek fillers last! 

Mine have lasted a year and I have friends whose pretty contours have lasted nearly two so far, so it’s well worth the investment. 

Yes, dermal fillers and my cheeks have started a long-lasting relationship that, like marriages are intended to, will last through the blissful years to come.

Oh, if you want to know more about them and fillers for other areas, check out the links below:

What are the side effects?

The main side effects of dermal fillers are slight swelling and redness which can occur straight after the procedure. This normally disappears after ten minutes. Some bruising can also occur if the filler is being administered into the lip area, as this is more vascular than other parts of the face. However we provide icepacks straight after treatment to minimise bruising.

Learn The Secret To Eternal Youth That Celebrities Don’t Want You To Know

No matter what age or gender we are, when it comes to our appearance it is safe to say that we’re all in the pursuit of perfection. We only have to watch the news, read a magazine or watch a TV show to see the countless celebrities of all ages showcasing a seemingly perfect appearance to make us feel a bit self-critical.

It’s important to remember that these celebrities are all real people with the same hang-ups as the rest of us. Many of them will have undergone non-surgical procedures such as Botox® and dermal fillers, and quite possibly more surgical procedures, too. The truth is, we can all do something about changing our appearance to improve our self-confidence and these days, non-surgical procedures are extremely commonplace and are not just reserved for those with high bank balances or celebrity status.

Dermal fillers are especially common and they’re gaining popularity every day, so we’ve put together this handy guide to explain how dermal fillers work.

What are dermal fillers and which areas of the body can they treat?

Dermal fillers involve undergoing a few small injections to create smoother and younger skin. As you get older, collagen in your skin can start to break down and this is what causes it to flatten and sag. Dermal fillers are designed to replace the collagen that has broken down over time to restore your youthful glow.

In terms of which areas can be treated, dermal fillers can be used for a variety of purposes such as treating lines around the mouth, facial scars and lines from the nose to mouth. However, two of the most commonly treated areas are the cheeks and the lips.

How can dermal fillers improve the appearance in your cheeks?

When it comes to dermal filler injections, cheeks are by far one of the most popular areas to treat amongst our patients. Your cheeks frame and shape your face and as you age they can start to lack definition. Cheek augmentations using dermal fillers are a fantastic way of giving your face a more youthful and defined shape. If you’re interested in finding out more about dermal fillers for your cheek area, just contact our friendly team and they will be able to give you more information.

How can you give your lips a youthful boost using dermal fillers?

Dermal fillers for lips are very popular. As you start to age, your lips can thin out over time which can add a few years to your appearance. However, lip fillers are not just restricted to men and women of a certain age, younger patients also opt for lip fillers in order to create a more glamorous pout. Whatever your age or gender, dermal fillers are a really affordable way of creating more definition around your lip area.

How much do filler injections for lips cost?

Here at Look Lovely London, our prices are very reasonable. Our fees for dermal fillers are based on the amount of filler used on the area in question. However, to give you an idea of cost, for 1 syringe of filler our prices start at £280. If you’re new to dermal fillers, we also offer an introductory price of £250 for 1 syringe of filler for any first timers.

What will happen in your appointment at Look Lovely London?

Following a consultation with our experienced team of doctors in which you will have the opportunity to ask any questions, we then get to work! You’ll have a few small injections which will be carefully administered. You might feel mild discomfort when the needle is placed in the skin but we offer ice packs and numbing cream to any patients who are particularly sensitive to pain.

You’ll see the results pretty much straight away and you’ll leave the clinic feeling like a new person! However, the full results from filler injections for the face will be seen after about ten days. Results last between 6-12 months, after which time you may well decide to return for further treatment.

If you’d like more information on how dermal fillers can improve your appearance, just give our skilled team a call to arrange a consultation. We can discuss the procedure with you in more detail and answer any questions you may have.

Call us today on 0203 199 8236 and get yourself well on your way to being a younger, happier and more confident you!

Face Flat, Sagging Skin Head On and Get Instant Face Definition With This One Simple Tip

If we are honest with ourselves, we’d all love to change something about our appearance. Those countless hours spent in front of a mirror critically analysing every flaw could surely be put to better use?

The rise of surgical enhancements and procedures amongst well-known celebrity faces in the mass media has done nothing to stop our self-critical nature. ‘How can I look more like the girl on the front cover?’ ‘How does that actress always look so fresh and youthful?’ We’ve all been there. Comparing ourselves to these people is almost unavoidable. We’re all in the pursuit of perfection, no matter what age or gender we are.

The great news is that unless these famous faces have exceptionally good genetic makeup, the chances are they’ve made a few minor tweaks to their appearance in order to look the way that they do, whether they admit to it or not!

Botox® and dermal fillers are largely responsible for the seemingly perfect appearance of celebrities. Let’s take a look at the latter treatment in more detail.

What are dermal fillers?

Dermal fillers are designed to restore a youthful appearance and, since they are made with hyaluronic acid which naturally occurs in human collagen, the results are completely natural looking. Dermal fillers attack flat, sagging skin which has wrinkles and deepening grooves, to smooth out lines and restore a fresh, young look.

In addition to smoothing out skin, dermal fillers can also be used to create definition in the face. Here at Look Lovely London, one of the most common complaints amongst our patients is about their cheekbone area. Your cheekbones frame your face and patients with lack of definition around the cheek area feel naturally self-conscious and are keen to make some adjustments. Dermal fillers for cheekbones are by far one of the best ways you can create instant definition in your face, and are so quick to administer, you could slot an appointment in during your lunch break and nobody would need to know!

How quickly will dermal filler results show on the cheekbone area?

If you decide to undergo dermal fillers for cheekbones, it is likely that you’ll see an instant result after your appointment. However, the full extent of the results will be visible after just ten days.

Results will last up to 12 months and if you start to feel like you want to come back for further treatment after this time then you can do so.

Do dermal fillers hurt?

Here at Look Lovely London, we’re used to working with patients who are particularly sensitive to pain. We administer dermal fillers very gently and the procedure itself takes just a few minutes. Some of our patients feel mild discomfort when the needle is inserted into the cheek area but if you’re worried about this, we will offer you some numbing cream which can be applied to the area before we get to work. In addition to this, the filler itself contains a local anaesthetic so this helps to reduce any discomfort associated with the injections.

Some patients experience minor bruising after having dermal filler treatment, while others do not have any bruising whatsoever. After your treatment, we will offer you an ice pack that you can apply to the area, to minimise bruising or prevent it altogether.

How much do dermal fillers cost?

When it comes to dermal filler prices, London is home to many clinics offering dermal filler treatments and each of these vary in terms of cost.

How to Create Definition in Your Cheeks

Dermal fillers are commonly used to correct lines, scars or lack of definition on the skin. But dermal fillers do not just correct problematic skin; they can also dramatically improve the look of your face by adding fillers into your cheeks.

Dermal fillers for cheeks are extremely popular. Rather than opting for invasive and expensive cosmetic surgery, dermal fillers for cheeks are a fantastic way of framing and defining your face and instantly taking years off your appearance.

Dermal fillers for cheekbones creates a more defined, youthful look and can dramatically improve your facial features.

How do dermal fillers for the cheeks help?

Over time, natural aging kicks in and you start to wear your age on your face. It can be disheartening to watch your appearance change over time and you can become quite self-conscious about your facial appearance. Dermal fillers are an affordable, non-invasive way to stop the aging process simply by having a series of small injections to the skin.

Dermal fillers can fill your cheeks out, especially if they have become flat and saggy over time, and the great news is that nobody needs to know that you have undergone cosmetic treatment. The results are subtle to everyone around you, but to you they will be immediately obvious. Results last up to 12 months so you do not need to make regular trips to the clinic to keep on top of your new and improved look.

Can anyone benefit from having dermal fillers for cheeks?

Absolutely. Dermal fillers for cheeks can make a vast improvement to anyone’s face. However, if you have a skin breakout or any kind of inflammation on the skin, we would recommend that you wait for this to clear up before undergoing dermal filler treatment on your cheeks.

Which dermal fillers are intended for the cheeks?

When it comes to using the best dermal filler for cheek augmentation, our consultants at Look Lovely London know exactly what they’re doing. We use Emervel and Restylane which we believe are the very best dermal fillers for cheeks. Fairly new to the market, Emervel creates the most natural-looking results thanks to the hyaluronic acid ingredient which is also found in human collagen.

Once the treatment has been injected into the cheek, it is designed to pull in water to hydrate the skin, giving you an immediately refreshed look. Not only does dermal filler contain natural collagen designed to turn back the clock, it also contains antioxidant qualities which moisturise your skin much more effectively than even the most expensive, top brand moisturiser.

Do dermal fillers hurt?

Most patients do not experience any pain when they have dermal fillers. Some report mild discomfort while the needle is inserted into the skin but the pain is short-lived and minimal.

If you have a low pain threshold, our team will suggest that you use numbing cream on the cheek area before the treatment is administered. This can help to minimise any discomfort during treatment. The filler also contains a mild anesthetic so when the needle makes contact with the skin, you will hardly feel a thing. We will always supply ice packs after dermal filler treatment which can be used to minimise any bruising.

Are there any side effects to dermal fillers for cheeks?

You may experience a little minor swelling or redness immediately after your treatment but this typically disappears within about ten minutes. Many of our patients are able to carry on with their day as normal after having dermal fillers administered.

Although minor bruising can occur, any serious complications with dermal fillers are extremely rare but if you have any concerns about your treatment, our team will put your mind at ease.

How much do dermal fillers for cheeks cost?

If you are a first timer to dermal fillers, we offer an introductory fee of £250 for 1 syringe of filler. If you choose to come back for additional treatments then the cost per treatment starts at just £280 for 1 syringe.

If you’re new to cosmetic treatment and are feeling nervous, please get in touch. Our team will explain the procedure in full and will answer any questions you might have. Contact us on 0203 199 8236 to find out how dermal fillers can immediately improve the way you look at yourself.

Anti-wrinkle Treatment: Top Tips For The Budget-conscious Patient

Anti-wrinkle injections, also known as Botox®, are a fantastic way to alter your appearance the easy way. With just a few quick injections, you can instantly change the way that you look for the better. You can smooth out unwanted wrinkles and take years off your age simply by undergoing this minor procedure.

But what if your bank balance is an issue? Many men and women who struggle with their appearance feel trapped if they cannot afford surgical procedures. They feel as though they are stuck with their changing appearance and this can have a significant impact on their self-esteem. Natural aging happens to us all but it can be upsetting and overwhelming to see your appearance change gradually over a period of time.

If you are concerned about the cost of anti-wrinkle treatment, we’ve put together this short guide, which should answer all of your questions. But if you still have queries at the end, you’re very welcome to get in touch with us.

How much does an anti-wrinkle injection cost?

Anti-wrinkle injections vary in cost, depending on the area treated. Here at Look Lovely London, we offer a range of special packages for anti-wrinkle injections to make the treatment more affordable.

If you are looking for just one area to be treated, the cost for anti-wrinkle injections is £140. For two areas, the cost is £210 and for three areas, it costs £270. If you want to reduce the lines on your neck, this treatment starts at £350 and we can give you a clearer idea on price during a consultation.

Which areas can be treated?

Our patients use anti-wrinkle injections to correct a number of complaints such as forehead lines or frown lines, or to reduce the appearance of lines caused by smoking cigarettes.

Anti-wrinkle injections are so effective that, no matter which area you want to treat, the results are long lasting so you don’t have to worry about not being able to afford regular treatment.

What else can Botox® be used for?

Many of our patients also use anti-wrinkle injections to correct excessive sweating around the armpit area. Sweat stains on clothing can be unsightly and can result in an unpleasant smell on your clothes, which is difficult to remove.

A course of anti-wrinkle injections designed for the armpit area is also known as Hyperhidrosis, which costs £450 for both armpits. Once you’ve undergone the procedure, the results last for up to nine months, so you’ll have plenty of time to save up for your repeat treatment. However, research has shown that anti-wrinkle injections have a cumulative effect so you may find that after a few treatments, the problem has been corrected for good.

Do you offer an anti-wrinkle treatment voucher or coupon?

A fantastic way of affording anti-wrinkle injections is to ask your friends and family to buy vouchers or coupons for your anti-wrinkle treatment. Rather than wondering what to buy you for Christmas or your birthday each year, they can now help you to improve your self-confidence and contribute towards a younger and more confident you. Talk to our friendly and helpful team at Look Lovely London and they will explain more about vouchers and coupons for anti-wrinkle treatments.

The Easy Way To Banish Frown Lines

We’ve all been there; spending hours in front of the mirror agonising over our facial flaws. But what is the number one complaint for men and women of a certain age? Yes, you guessed it: frown lines.

Frown lines on a forehead can instantly age a person’s face. Over time your skin loses elasticity and, as the natural collagen starts to break down, frown lines start to take over. But millions of men and women worldwide are now enjoying younger, fresher and brighter-looking skin, thanks to super-simple dermal filler treatment.

How do dermal fillers reduce frown lines?

Once the dermal fillers are gently injected into the forehead, it quickly starts to pull in water, which fully hydrates the skin, smoothing out lines and giving a fresher appearance.

Not only do dermal fillers reduce frown lines, the treatment also has antioxidant benefits meaning that the skin appears smoother and brighter. In fact, the results from dermal filler treatment are always far more effective than using an expensive, top-brand moisturiser.

Do dermal fillers on the forehead hurt?

Most patients do not experience any pain from dermal fillers on their forehead except for minor discomfort when the needle is inserted into the skin. Our expert team at Look Lovely London is skilled and experienced in administering sensitive and gentle injections, so any pain or discomfort is kept to an absolute minimum.

The dermal filler also contains a local anesthetic which numbs the skin to ensure that any sensation felt when the needle is injected is very minor. Our team also provides specially designed mini ice packs after dermal filler treatment which can be placed on your forehead to reduce and minimise any bruising or swelling.

Can anyone have dermal fillers for frown lines?

Yes. We have administered dermal fillers for men and women of all ages.

However, if you have any acne or breakouts on your skin, we do recommend that you wait for this to calm down before you undergo any dermal filler treatment. We also cannot administer dermal fillers to pregnant women or breastfeeding mums so it’s best to postpone your dermal filler treatment until your body is back to its normal self.

Are there any side effects from dermal filler treatment?

You may experience minor redness or swelling to the forehead after dermal filler treatment but this usually disappears quickly.

Most of our patients find that after a short period of time they are able to get on with the rest of their day without anyone knowing that they have just undergone dermal filler treatment. Some people even pop out to visit us on their lunch break, heading back to work feeling revived and refreshed.

It really is that simple!

When will you see results and how long do the results last?

You will see instant results after your treatment has been administered. However, increased results will be noticeable during the 10 days or so following your treatment. After 10 days have passed, you’ll be looking and feeling your very best. Results can last from between six and twelve months so you do not need to worry about having to have the treatment on a regular basis.

When it comes to reducing frown lines on aging foreheads, dermal fillers really are a superb option. Not only is the procedure non-invasive and almost completely pain free, the results can be seen for months after the treatment, delivering a huge, long-lasting boost to your confidence.

As with any cosmetic treatments, you are bound to feel slightly anxious and maybe a bit cautious. Many of our patients feel a little uneasy, especially if it is their first experience of having dermal filler treatment. Our team members are skilled, friendly and understanding and can put your mind at rest by answering any questions you may have, so you can book your appointment with confidence.
