When you’re pulled in so many different directions at a hundred miles an hour, it’s hard to find time to look after your skin. Don’t let the years show – try Hyaluronic Acid (HA) dermal fillers from the Antiwrinkle Clinic from as little as £320
Facial ageing is a multifactorial process that affects different structures including bone, muscles and fat distribution.
As a result, skin appears drier, less elastic, with volume loss and collagen reduction that contributes to the formation of wrinkles, deep folds and areas of skin depression or sagging.
Hyaluronic Acid (HA) dermal filler is a viscoelastic gel of cross-linked hyaluronic acid, sterile, transparent of non-animal origin that is injected to create volume and correct wrinkles, restore hydration and reshape and redefine facial contours.
Taking no longer than 30 minutes, tiny quantities of HA filler are injected in the treatment areas via a series of small injections, with immediately visible results that last for up to 6-18 months.
Most of the leading products contain local anaesthetic making the process relatively painless, but an additional topical anaesthetic can be applied upon request.
Following the treatment, some redness, mild pain, bruising and swelling might occur at the site of injection. These are common side effects of mild severity that usually resolve in 48 hours, although not everybody gets these symptoms.
The Antiwrinkle Clinic delivers subtle but effective enhancements to compliment your natural beauty and to pause the effects of ageing while avoiding frozen, bloated expressions.
Broadly speaking, dermal fillers can be used to correct hollowness in the temples, improve volume loss and darkness under the eyes (tear trough), enhance and hydrate the lips, soften the nasolabial folds (nose to mouth lines) and marionette lines (distinct lines running from the corner of the lips- “sad look”) and define the jaw line.
You will immediately notice smoother, plumper skin, but the site of injections may be slightly swollen and red. This will subside over 48 hours, with the filler settling completely after 10 days. The filler will be gradually broken down by your body over a period of 6-18 months.
Patients with active pathology (acne, herpes, rosacea), skin inflammation or unhealed skin alteration are advised to avoid any treatment.
Anyone who has had a chemical peel or laser treatment will need to wait 2 weeks before injections are administered.
Anti-wrinkle injections are not advised for anyone pregnant or breastfeeding.
