As we age, our body produces less hyaluronic acid and collagen causing a loss of elasticity and volume in our skin. This results in wrinkles, folds, and a dehydrated ‘crêpey’ appearance that can make you look tired and older than your years or than you might feel inside.
WHAT IS A DERMAL FILLER?
Resytlane® and Belotero® very fine, crystal clear gels that softly smooth out nose to mouth lines. These safe, clinically proven & FDA approved products are made from Hyaluronic Acid (HA) which is an important ingredient in keeping your skin looking and feeling youthful.

WILL IT LOOK NATURAL?
Absolutely yes! The aim of a dermal filler procedure is not to change how you look but to enhance your best features by treating any perceived minor imperfections. With this ‘less is more’ approach no one will notice exactly what you’ve had done… just that you look more fresh faced and brighter!Going to a highly trained practitioner with lots of experience is essential. Choosing the right product to perfectly suit your needs will ensure that the effect is always soft, natural and subtle.
THE PRACTICALITIES OF TREATMENT:
After your full consultation a numbing preparation may be applied ensuring that your treatment is not uncomfortable. The procedure itself will take from half an hour to an hour to complete. The gel is very simply injected into the treatment area with a small needle. The area is then gently massaged to ensure that it fits beautifully into the natural curves of the skin. We will then apply a soothing balm to the area, aiding healing and helping to reduce any mild swelling. It is normal to have a very small amount of swelling or mild bruising after a dermal filler treatment. This will typically last from 1- 3 days. It is absolutely fine to use any make up to conceal this if needs be.
