As we get older, we start to lose natural collagen, elastin and hyaluronic acid in the skin – key structural components that give skin its suppleness. Facial fillers, which usually contain synthetic hyaluronic acid, can be injected into precise points in the face to address the consequent skin laxity.
The most prominent area to show such signs of ageing is usually the face, where the skin is extremely delicate (especially around the eyes, lips and brows). This process is accelerated by environmental factors, such as constant exposure to the sun and harmful pollutants in the air, as well as certain lifestyle impacts, such as from stress, poor nutrition, lack of sleep, alcohol consumption and smoking/vaping/shisha.
Ageing is a perfectly natural process, and whereas many are very happy to embrace the changes it brings, others prefer a little help to maintain their appearance. If you do, you will be in expert hands with Self London. Through the skilful and subtle application of dermal fillers, our expert dermatologists achieve effective and natural-looking results.
Hyaluronic acid-based fillers rejuvenate from within, restoring lost volume and fullness. Our expert dermatologists will determine a bespoke treatment plan to address the particular areas of concern, before carefully applying exact amounts of filler into precise points throughout the face.
Your dermal filler treatment is wrapped up in as little as 20-30 minutes.
Just one treatment session is usually sufficient to see the results you want. However, dermal fillers are temporary, lasting from 6-12 months before the fillers are naturally absorbed by the body. Further treatment sessions are therefore required to maintain your results.
Following your treatment, and once any swelling has subsided, you can expect a more contoured appearance to the face.
You will be pleased to know that this treatment is only minimally-invasive with little impact on your daily life, other than the easily-managed potential side-effects noted below.
Side-effects may include minor swelling, bruising, redness and tenderness as the fillers settle. This should pass within the space of 48 hours and can be easily masked using make-up.
Providing you do not have an allergy to any of the ingredients within the advanced filler solution, and you are not pregnant, there is no reason this popular treatment should not offer the anti-ageing benefits you are looking for. However, patients looking for a more permanent solution might need to explore other treatment options.
A treatment session starts at £750, with the price dependent on the extent of your concerns and the number of areas into which filler needs to be injected. A more accurate estimate will be determined following your consultation with Self London.
