Facial filler and dermal filler in Southwold

Dermal filler is a gel like product containing hyaluronic acid which our bodies naturally produce, as we get older we produce less HA resulting in loss of volume and deep creases. Filler can then be used to shape, rejuvenate and contour facial areas adding volume and a youthful look back to the face.

 

Treatment areas enhanced with filler include cheeks, jaw, chin, nasolabial & marionette lines, these with lips can all be part of the contour packages I offer so you can have a few areas done priced by ml which is better value for money rather than charging per area, where costs can add up quickly.

Clients like to have cheek and jaw filler to define and contour the face, to give more shape or to lift sagging areas due to ageing. Cheeks are an especially effective area to help lift and reduce nasolabial lines (nose to mouth) and the cheek bone can be enhanced to give more contour, or the apples of the cheeks are great for clients with loss of volume mid-face. Jaw is great to define and reduce jowls along the jawline and filler placed at the mandible corner helps shorten a longer face when looking face on and defines from the side profile.

I always advise on a consultation what I think would look good aesthetically and how many mls this would require as you may need filler in other areas to get the best result overall. You then have a clear idea of what treatment would be best and the cost.

Clients often ask if they will swell or get bruising, this is hard to say as everyone reacts differently though it is probable you will get swelling when having filler but not everyone bruises.

Consultations are carried out at the time of treatment or you can book a separate consultation if you would like to discuss your requirements before making any decisions.

FAQs

Does it hurt to have filler? I have needle phobia.


I always use a strong numbing cream prior to treatment and the filler I use also contains Lidocaine which is the numbing agent which works quickly in the area. Lips are the most sensitive area to have treated but it is not unbearable, the majority of clients give the treatment 6/10 on pain level. For extremely anxious clients/those with low pain threshold/needle phobia I can offer nerve block to totally numb the lip area for a more relaxed and comfortable treatment.




How can I prepare for a filler treament?


Please avoid blood thinning medication for 7 days before treatment. Do not stop prescribed medication for cardiovascular disease.
Avoid any aggressive facial treatments including AHA peels, waxing, tweezing or hair removal cream on the area 3 days before treatment.
If you are unwell or have any active infection (ear/nose/throat/dental abcess etc) by the time of your apoointment, please rearrange your booking as these can result in delayed complications. Please avoid alcohol & coffee 24 hours prior to treatment as it can heighten the chances of bruising, swelling & bleeding.
You can take Arnica pillules in the run up to your appointment to help reduce bruising.
Please have something to eat and drink before treatment.




How long does filler last?


Filler can last around 12-18months, this longevity depends on the clients own metabolism as it slowly breaks the filler down over time. Some harder fillers (like what is used for cheeks, jaw and chin) can still be present 2 years after treatment as they break down slower than softer fillers used for lips for example.




What is the aftercare?


~To reduce swelling apply a cold compress regularly you can also take an antihistamine. You can carry on your day as normal, but bare in mind you may not want to make any social plans for a couple of days due to swelling this is particularly the case for lip fillers. ~Drink lots of water as HA absorbs 1000x its weight in water! ~Avoid extreme temperatures of hot & cold for 48hrs. eg. sunbeds/saunas. ~Avoid heavy exercise for 48 hours as it can cause migration. ~Apply arnica cream 4 times a day, as needed. ~Avoid alcohol for 24 hours. ~Light makeup may be worn 6 hrs post treatment, but do avoid rubbing/touching the area. ~If you have previously suffered with coldsores, lip injections can cause an outbreak.
