DERMAL FILLERS IN OXFORD
Dermal fillers work by injecting hyaluronic acid, a substance naturally produced in the skin, into areas of the face which have depleted levels and may look as though they need filling or are experiencing the effects of ageing. These semi-permanent injections, administered by a very fine needle, give a natural plumped and youthful look by providing support and structure to the skin.
Dermal fillers are also widely referred to as lip fillers, lip injections, cheek fillers or face fillers due to the popularity of injection locations. The most common places to have dermal fillers include the lips, cheeks and the nose to increase the appearance of volume, and around the jawline, chin, under the eyes and under the nose to reduce fine lines and wrinkles.
During the treatment, the nurse will use an anaesthetic cream to numb the area in preparation for the injections. The natural looking fillers, which use an FDA approved and leading brand of dermal filler, might feel uncomfortable but shouldn’t be painful and the treated area may be slightly sore and swollen but this should settle down within a few days. The treatment does not require recovery time so you can continue with your normal routine following your appointment. We will follow up post treatment to ensure you have had the desired outcomes and answer any further questions you may have.
ANTI-AGEING INJECTABLES IN OXFORD
Unlike dermal fillers which work by filling lines to enhance facial features, anti-ageing injectables work by relaxing muscles in the face to smooth out lines and wrinkles, resulting in more youthful and rejuvenated skin. The most common areas to have these injections are around the eyes to tackle crows feet, on the forehead to reduce frown lines, and around the mouth to diminish lip lines.
During your anti-wrinkle treatment at Stratum Clinics Oxford, a very fine needle will be used to inject the muscles of the desired area of the face. The treatment does not require recovery time so you can continue with your normal routine following your appointment. You should start to see some changes after a couple of days but it will take around 2-3 weeks to see the full effect, with results lasting between 3-4 months. We will follow up post treatment to ensure you have had the desired outcomes and answer any further questions you may have.
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
You will see the results of your dermal fillers straight after treatment, however it may take a couple of days for your skin to settle down and the results to be realised. Results will last up to 12 months depending on where you had the injections, with injections in the lips typically lasting about 6 months.
