Richmond Skin and Laser Clinic
Dermal Fillers are very popular in our clinic for both Women and Men.
Dermal Fillers contain Hyaluronic Acid, which is naturally found in our skin. The substance is a sugar molecule that attracts, and binds water improving elasticity and stabilizes the structure. We use the premium Dermal Fillers only by Galderma and Allegan.
Our Facial Rejuvenation with our cosmetic injectables including Dermal fillers involves a full consultation with our Cosmetic Injectables Nurses & Doctor. During the consultation we discuss your outcomes and treatment suitability, this helps us design a customised treatment journey that will help minimise the signs of ageing and provide you with the results you desire. Our consultations are recommended with results and Patient satisfaction in mind, so we may prescribe anti-wrinkle, dermal fillers, PDO threads or laser and other facial treatments, our treatment plans are holistic, and we believe that there is no point having cosmetic injectables if your canvas is not functioning properly. We pride ourselves on results and quality treatments that will last longer through proper treatments plans and care.
Dermal fillers can help restore fullness, volume and plumpness to the lip, cheek and temple areas. They are very effective on smoothing out deeper and finer lines, and contouring areas that require this. Our treatments are focused on your goals to achieve beautiful, natural looking results. You will have a fresh youthful looking appearance.
What To Expect -
We utilise Anaesthetic to numb the areas and the enhancement normally takes 30 to 45 mins with your consultation. Usually, you feel a slight pinch and sting, everybody is different, and there may be slight bleeding at the injection sight. There is no recovery required after cosmetic injectables and PDO Threads. Some Patients may experience mild bruising and mild swelling this settles quickly. The results depend on which dermal filler we use, and they last approximately 9-12 months and Patients have experienced longer results, the effects can keep going for longer periods with follow-up appointments too. Don’t forget the results can take up to 2 weeks for the filler to take full effect.
Post Care After The Treatment -
Bruising, swelling may occur and the area may look uneven, if this persists after 2 weeks a follow- up appointment is required and you may need additional treatment at extra cost. Our beliefs are better to undertreat than overtreat.
No laser or other skin treatments for 2 weeks. Make up can be applied 4 hours later gently. Do not rub the areas that were treated for 24 hours.
