At Aesthetic Health we know that ‘less is more’ where fillers are concerned. We use small amounts of judiciously placed product to lift, repair, strengthen and support, achieving more natural longer lasting results. We address the underlying cause, using the most appropriate filler from a carefully chosen range of safe, well-researched products. For your comfort, we apply local anaesthetic cream to numb your skin and our fillers either contain local anaesthetic, or we add it prior to use. All fillers carry a risk of bruising, which we minimise where possible using a special regimen and the latest gentle cannulae instead of needles. A medical doctor performs all our filler procedures after a full consultation.
Fillers are available in a range of different strengths and characteristics, from which we choose carefully according to the needs of your skin and facial structure.
Juvederm® Hydrate and Restylane Vital™ are very light products specially formulated to be injected just under the surface of the skin to improve hydration, tone and elasticity. Ideal for bringing a natural healthy glow to the face, neck, décolletage and hands, a course of three treatments is required for the best results, which can last for upwards of a year.
These are the most commonly used fillers, available in different strengths to treat all depths and types of skin. They can be injected anywhere that support and subtle volume are needed, softening wrinkles whilst gently plumping and lifting. They stay in the skin for up to a year but the results are more long lasting due to the collagen production stimulated by the way we perform treatment.
We have specially formulated products to hydrate, gently enhance lip volume, redefine shape and treat vertical lip lines. We can achieve results ranging from restoration of hydration to lip enhancement, always retaining a natural look in harmony with your face.
Containing more hyaluronic acid than dermal fillers, these thicker products successfully refill, define and lift the cheek, jowls and jawline. Working with gentle micro-cannulae this technique treats underlying problems of ageing and volume loss, lifting the structure of the face. We use Juvederm® Voluma, Belotero Intense or Teosyal Ultra Deep to give instant results which can last up to 18 months.
Radiesse is a dermal filler with a longer lasting dual volumising effect. A special gel-matrix creates immediately visible results, while fine calcium microspheres re-stimulate natural collagen formation over six to sixteen weeks for lasting contour and volume. The gel itself, and the microspheres, are completely broken down by the body over time, but the natural collagen ‘scaffolding’ persists giving an ‘antigravity’ effect which can last 1-3 years, depending on age. Radiesse is particularly helpful in volumising hollow or sagging cheeks and hands.
Removing Unwanted Filler
Generally patients come to Aesthetic Health for help to dissolve filler after treatment elsewhere, sometimes months or years previously. As they do not always know which filler has been used therefore results are not easy to predict, usually we can help in some way.
Hyaluronic Acid filler can be dissolved using an enzyme called Hyalase. This is most successful when the filler is new in the first few weeks, but can also be successful months later. Depending on the original filler we have even seen improvement using Hyalase years after filler treatment.
Treatment involves the injection of tiny quantities of Hyalse into the area where the old filler has been injected. The response can be instant. As Hyalse causes some swelling it can take a few days before the result is clear. Several sessions are usually required depending on the amount of filler and the complexity of the case. We can then re-fill an area more appropriately, if required, several weeks after Hyalase treatment.
