Dermal fillers are used to restore volume and hydration to the skin where needed. Volume can be restored to sunken cheeks, laughter lines softened and lips can be defined again. Noses can be improved in selected cases, resulting in a nose job without surgery. Volume to hands can give a more youthful, softer look and the decollete area can be hydrated. Scarring can also be softened by using dermal fillers.
At The Bosham Clinic, we mainly use fillers containing hyaluronic acid, which is a naturally occuring sugar in the body. Juvederm, Restylane, Emerrel, Teosyal are well known. We also use Radiesse, which is a calcium hydroxylapatite suspended in an aqueous gel. This filler may sometimes be longer lasting and is excellent for facial contouring.
At the Bosham Clinic we use advanced techniques to give you an optimum result. All our injections are performed by experienced Doctors.
WHICH AREAS CAN BE TREATED?
Any area on the skin that needs either volumising or hydration can be treated with dermal fillers. Dermal fillers can improve and restore fullness to lips, frown lines, sunken cheeks, nasolabial or nose to mouth lines, deep chin lines, decolletage and ageing hands. It can be used for a non-surgical nose job, to improve teartroughs and replace volume for sunken eyes.
IS THE TREATMENT PAINFUL?
The treatment can be uncomfortable, and that is why we use an anaesthetic cream to numb the area before injection. Juvederm Ultra already contains a local anaesthetic and this makes the procedure very comfortable. If required, we do apply a dental block, when necessary, to improve further patient comfort.
HOW LONG WILL IT LAST?
At The Bosham Clinic we only use non-permanent fillers. Dermal fillers can last from 6 - 18 months depending on the filler used and area placed. Over time and with repeated treatment the effects can last longer.
WHAT ARE THE SIDE EFFECTS?
Slight bruising and swelling are common side-effects. At The Bosham Clinic we use cannulas to reduce the chance of bruising. This is a more gentle approach for the patient. Dermal fillers are generally a very safe procedure, when in the right hands.
WHAT HAPPENS DURING AND AFTER TREATMENT?
After a full consultation and medical history being taken, photos will be taken before the procedure. Anaesthetic cream will be applied. At The Bosham Clinic we take our time and do not rush our patients, so you might expect to block out about an hour and a half for the whole procedure. We review our patients after two weeks and can then compare before and after photos which is usually very good to see.
HOW MUCH WILL IT COST?
At The Bosham Clinic our prices start from £260 for dermal fillers.
