Have you started noticing lines in places where they weren’t previously? Perhaps you think your face would benefit from looking younger or healthier? There’s no way to physically turn back the clock when it comes to your face and the stress and fatigue associated with everyday living can aggravate matters further. But the good news is that we may be able to help.
At Woodborough House we understand that there’s no miracle cure but cosmetic fillers can help to soften these lines and wrinkles which will help you to look younger. The ageing process will seemingly appear halted – even reversed. Our team of qualified practitioners can help to safely administer cosmetic fillers into the areas you want treated.
The results are usually noticeable in two to three days and the effects can last for up to six months. Some repeated treatments may be required for prolonged results and if a few are administered, it can extend the results between injections.
How cosmetic fillers work
Injectible dermal fillers work by targeting the areas you need treating. It is injected in an ultra-thin needle and in small doses to affect the targeted muscles. The cosmetic injection disrupts the nerve signals to the muscles, before they are allowed to relax, which allows the wrinkles to smooth themselves out.
When administered by a properly trained practitioner, dermal fillers are a completely safe treatment. They can be used to enhance, reinvigorate and improve wrinkles around the eyes (crow’s feet), frown lines, wrinkled forehead, sides of the nose and lower eyelids. Other popular areas which give away our age as we get older include the neck and upper lip, both of which can also be treated.
What is Restylane?
One cosmetic filler which can help is Restylane, which can temporarily reverse the aging process for our patients. It uses a natural, non-animal source biodegradable material which can help to combat the thinning of natural collagen fibre which supports the skin. This gradually begins to break down as we age, which causes the skin to sag and wrinkle.
Restylane is injected into the skin using a thin needle. It is a transparent thick gel which contains stabilized hyaluronic acid. This is a vital structural component found in the skin. A restylane injection can help to return the contour of your skin and it does this by effectively ‘plumping’ or adding volume to the tissue. The results are immediate and it’s recommended that these only need to be followed up every 2-4 weeks.
The typical treatment time lasts for approximately 10 to 30 minutes and can be administered without the need for anesthesia. Most people will find they can enjoy results which last up to a year by following this advice. It’s also one of the most natural and safe procedures as users have reported that fillers made from animal sources often require a number of skin tests to check if there are any adverse reactions.
If you want to restore your confidence and get a younger, healthier look the natural and safe way, then cosmetic fillers could be for you. If you’d like to find out more or to book an initial consultation, please give us a call on 0118 984 3108 for more information.
