As we age, our skin loses its collagen and the structure of elastic fibres disintegrates leading to drier, thinner and crepey-looking skin.
At the London Cosmetic Clinic we use synthetically-produced hyaluronic acid to restore the volume, firmness, elasticity and overall appearance of skin on the face, neck, hands and chest.
Hyaluronic acid is found naturally in the body as well as most other living organisms and is one of nature’s most versatile substances so, instead of introducing a new substance, we are refilling the body’s supplies. Hyaluronic acid used in our fillers is created in a laboratory, is completely sterile and is the only type of filler that is reversible. The product contains no human or animal DNA and has the best safety profile of any filler currently on the market.
What to Expect from the Treatment
The area to be treated will be numbed using a local anaesthetic 15-30 minutes prior to the treatment. We then inject tiny amounts of the derma filler in precise locations and massaged to control the final result.
After the treatment you should avoid touching the treated area or applying makeup to it for 6 to 12 hours afterwards to prevent infection. We will advise you on after care.
You may require 3-5 sessions, each spaced 2-4 weeks apart. You should start to see results from your third session and the final result may last up to 6-12 months. You can have the procedure repeated to maintain the look and have adjustments to maintain a natural look as your face changes over time.
After the Treatment
In the case of derma fillers you may see some swelling for 24-72 hours post-treatment so we recommend that you allow yourself plenty of time between your appointment and any social events.
In order to avoid bruising you should avoid exercise with the exception of regular walking for 24 hours after your treatment and do not take Vitamin E (except in a multivitamin) or St.John’s Wort for 2-3 days before and after the treatment.
For 1 week before the treatment and 2 days after it you must not take aspirin, ibuprofen, Exedrin, Advil or Aleve to avoid swelling and bruising.
Due to the nature of the treatment there may be some mild side effects. Any redness, soreness, itching, tenderness or mild bruising should subside within 2-10 days.
