Deeper expression lines, folds and furrows can be softened by “filling” the tissue deep to the crease The products used are known as dermal fillers. These plumping agents are injected deep to the crease. The dermal fillers wear off slowly over months, and can be repeated. The most popular areas treated are the nasolabial folds, the lips, marionette lines, and dark circles under the eyes. Deeper fillers can also be used to lift the brow and define the cheek.
At Ock Street we like the Restylane range of fillers due to their proven track record. Restylane products offer smoothness of injection and staying power www.restylane.co.uk
Other good fillers include the Teosyal range www.lifestyleaesthetics.co.uk and the Juvederm range www.juvederm.com
Modern hyalan fillers are incredibly safe and controllable. They wear off slowly, but should you not like the effect they can also be dissolved by an injection of hyaluronidase.
As the fillers need to be injected there can be some discomfort. This is minimised by using topical local anaesthetic. Occasionally there can be some bruising.
The effects are immediate and last from 6 to 9 months.
A classic complaint for many is that of dark circles under the eyes. This is phenomenally difficult to correct surgically. One of the most effective techniques is to use tear trough fillers. The results are immediate and last from 6 to 9 months
Tear Trough Fillers are made of hyaluronic similar to restylane and the effects are seen immediately.
