What are Dermal Fillers?

Dermal fillers are used to treat lines and wrinkles and areas of the face and body which have  lost volume. By restoring this lost volume, the treatment area is plumped to create a lift and rejuvenate areas that need more volume. This also improves the structure of the face and texture of the skin by restoring hydration.

At Health & Aesthetics, we use Juvederm and Belotero fillers. These are FDA approved so they are proven to be both safe and effective. It is important when looking at fillers to consider who is injecting you and what they are injecting as the UK is severely under-regulated.

Dermal Fillers are gels made from crosslinked hyaluronic acid which means that it smooth and easy to inject while lasting for several months. Hyaluronic acid can hold 100x its weight in water so when it is injected, it attracts water from the surrounding tissues helping the skin to retain moisture, adding plumpness and smoothing lines of the treatment area.

Juvederm have an extensive range of fillers that vary in thickness and can therefore be used to treat different area. Juvederm Volux is a new filler specifically developed for the jawline and is a thicker, sculpting filler, whereas Juvederm Voluma is a slightly thinner filler specifically designed to restore lost volume in the cheek area. The choice of filler will be made under guidance with your doctor in the consultation so that the right filler is used for your specific need.

Dermal Fillers help people to look less tired, less angry, more awake and well rested. They can lift the face effectively and match the way you look outside to the way you feel inside.

Frequently Asked Questions

Some fillers also encourage your skin to produce collagen. We use these on the face and hands, but are not reversible. All of our fillers are FDA approved and discussed fully with you prior to any treatment.

Hyaluronic acid fillers work by attracting water from the surrounding tissues, helping the skin to retain moisture which adds plumpness, smooths lines and restores volume. Hyaluronic acid fillers can be used almost anywhere on the body, including the face, nose, lips, neck, décolletage and hands. These fillers are fully reversible and can be easily removed if required. At Health & Aesthetics we use only the safest and highest quality hyaluronic acid fillers which are FDA approved. Learn more about the importance of who is injecting you and the importance of FDA approval here.

The 8-Point Face Lift is a clever technique to restore lost volume and structure to the face using carefully targeted fillers. Dr Mauricio de Maio, an eminent surgeon from Brazil, developed this technique.

Over recent years, we reached a better understanding of the ageing process and volume loss. This means more sophisticated treatments available for everyone. With this technique, we can use small amounts of filler at different points on the face to create a rejuvenated, natural look. After the 8-point lift, Dr de Maio developed his technique further which are now called MD Codes.

MeDical (MD) Codes are a series of predefined and precise injection sites in the face. Just like the 8-point facelift technique, Dr de Maio developed these codes, making it even more detailed and precise. Dr Tailor will administer dermal fillers to these points and this results in a more rejuvenated, natural looking face.Did you know that there are 75 different MD Codes for the face?

Use of MD Codes allows for a bespoke, tailor made treatment. The practitioner has to monitor and check  the facial proportions and anatomy before using the codes to rejuvenate, lift and give natural results. In the past, injectors administered fillers as seen fit. This did not address the cause of the problem but instead added weight and volume. Dr Tailor has extensive experience with injectable treatments and use of MD Codes.

Skinboosters are an excellent treatment for treating dry skin on the face and the backs of the hands. They help to hydrate the skin and create a smoother, more youthful appearance.

This is entirely dependent on the treatment area, the volume needed and the desired results. This will be discussed prior to any treatment in your consultation.

The treatment takes about 30 minutes to an hour. Afterwards, you will see the results straight away. Moreover, the effects will last between 6 months and 2 years, depending upon the areas treated and the filler used.

It is important that prior to any treatment, that you avoid any products containing aspirin as this thins the blood and can cause bruising around the injection site. After injection, it is important not to touch the area due to the risk of introducing infection into the area.

Ultherapy is a key treatment for those looking for a lift in their face and neck. This is a micro-focused ultrasound which causes micro-wounds deep in the tissue to stimulate collagen and elastin production producing a two finger lift to the treatment area, without the need for incisions.

ZO Skin Health by Doctor Zein Obagi is fantastic at treating a range of issues on the skin. By using these and adding in a retinol protocol, you can stimulate the skin to start producing collagen and elastin resulting in firmer and tighter skin and a lifting effect.

Skinade is a fantastic product which is clinically proven to promote collagen production. This can be bought in store or online in our shop.

Clearlift is a gentle laser which can be used on the face and eyes to stimulate collagen production helping to reduce laxity on the treatment area.
