Dermal fillers are the quickest way to refresh your looks and improve your appearance, by restoring lost volume and smoothing out wrinkles and folds.
As we age, we lose not only collagen but also bone, muscle and facial fat. Skin becomes thinner, drier and dull. Our faces become saggy and tired with wrinkles and folds – this sounds great doesn’t it!
Fortunately, this can significantly slowed down by restoring and replenishing lost tissue beneath the skin in numerous areas of the face.
Modern dermal Fillers are composed of Hyaluronic Acid which is a naturally occurring substance we all already have in our bodies.
What areas do you treat ?
Common areas treated with dermal fillers include cheeks, tear troughs, nasolabial folds, jawline, angles of the mouth and marionette folds.
They are used to correct imperfections in the nose, lips, and chin as well.
Dr Davies has the skill and training to treat ALL areas here at Whitehall Facial Aesthetics.
What is the procedure, is it painful ?
Dr Davies is a vastly experienced cosmetic dental surgeon who is highly skilled at providing both topical, dental and regional anaesthesia.
This ensures treatment involves no more than mild discomfort.
The dermal Filler is injected into the area of volume loss and we have been using the micro-cannula technique (blunt needle) for dermal Filler placement at Whitehall for a number of years now. This greatly reduces any discomfort, swelling and bruising (by up to 80-90%)
Are they safe and how long do they last ?
The Fillers we use at Whitehall have an excellent safety record and we have had no serious side effects to date. Allergic reactions have been reported but are very rare, more common issues would be localised minor swelling and bruising.
Dermal Fillers can be removed by ” dissolving ” if it were to prove necessary.
We use the most respected Dermal Fillers by Restylane® and Juvederm® in our clinic. Dermal Fillers are slowly absorbed over time but they generally last around 12 months.
Am I suitable for Dermal Fillers?
Most people are suitable, but a free consultation with no obligation with Dr Davies can tell you the most suitable treatment for you.
