Dermal Fillers Glasgow

If you’re interested in receiving an easy cosmetic procedure that can help even out your face shape and give yourself more plump, full skin, then dermal fillers may be exactly what you’re looking for. Getting dermal fillers in Glasgow has never been easier than here at Luxe Skin.

So, what are face and cheek dermal fillers? Dermal filler is a gel-like substance containing hyaluronic acid. This acid is also present in the skin and is responsible for retaining moisture and keeping the skin plump. By adding hyaluronic acid to the skin, face and cheek dermal fillers add volume by attracting and holding on to moisture.

This results in hydrated skin and its plumpness is enhanced. Dermal fillers also stimulate collagen production over several weeks, thus strengthening the skin. The main brands of fillers are Juvederm, Restylane, Belotero and Teosyal. Most fillers in Glasgow also contain lidocaine which helps reduce discomfort during injections.

Can Dermal Fillers Prevent Signs of Ageing Skin?

As much as we try, there’s no real way to prevent signs of ageing on your skin. As you age, you get hollowing of the temples causing the brows to drop. The fat pads under the eyes reduce resulting in the formation of tear troughs or under-eye hollows. You lose fat at the back of the face around the cheeks which causes the skin to fall forward giving rise to nasolabial folds, marionette lines, downturned mouth corners, and jowls. All of this results in squaring of the face. Because of this, you start looking tired, sad and exhausted.

Rather than using face or cheek dermal fillers to chase lines on the face such as the nose-to-mouth or mouth-to-chin lines, you will get a far superior result if the filler is placed strategically in areas of volume loss. This will help “pull” the skin back giving a more youthful appearance. Just filling up the lines gives an “over-filled” or cushion appearance.

What Can You Do?

Juvederm has brought out a premium range of fillers with Vycross technology. This allows cross-linking of lower molecular weight hyaluronic acid molecules resulting in a smoother product that integrates better with the skin. In practice, this means that the product is easier to inject, it is less painful, has a greater lifting potential and because it blends well with skin, the result is more natural in look and feel.

Getting dermal fillers in Glasgow is easy at Luxe Skin. At Luxe Skin, we only use the Juvederm premium fillers called Volbella, Volift and Voluma. Volbella is a light filler suitable for under the eyes, forehead and upper lip area. Volift is a medium-strength filler used all over the face for volume and lift. Voluma is the highest-strength filler that is used in areas which need the most volume and lift such as the cheeks and jaw.

When you book a consultation here at Luxe Skin, we will be able to go through all of your options with you. There are a wide array of options for dermal fillers in Glasgow, and our knowledgeable staff will be able to help you choose the best formula and the ideal amount for your needs when you book a consultation with us.

What is a liquid facelift?

Liquid facelift is full face rejuvenation using 8-12 syringes of filler placed carefully around the face rather than just aggregating them in the lines. This results in a natural, contoured and younger-looking YOU. We use Juvederm Voluma and Volift which lasts 18 – 24 months. So after your initial treatment, you only require a small amount of regular maintenance to combat the signs of ageing as they happen. It is best to start treatment sooner than later. The longer you leave it, the most expensive it becomes to have the desired result.

What are the side effects of dermal fillers?

Minor side effects usually resolve within 2 weeks and include:

‣ bruising

‣ redness

‣ swelling.

The filler can sometimes migrate away from the site of injection into the adjacent area resulting in a displeasing aesthetic look. It is easily corrected by dissolving the filler and repeating the initial procedure. If the filler comes up to the surface of the skin, it may present as a swelling that does not settle after 2 weeks. Occasionally it may give a blueish hue as the light hits it. This is called the Tyndall effect. It can be resolved by dissolving the filler that has surfaced.

Dermal filler can aggregate and lump which requires an injection of hyalase, an enzyme that breaks the filler and turns it to water. Rarely the filler may form a hard lump that does not respond to hyalase. Such a lump is called a granuloma which requires a steroid injection to break it. A much rarer problem with fillers is the formation of a biofilm. The filler can get infected and harbour bacteria. Luckily this problem is rare but it does require treatment. In such a case the filler will need to be dissolved and oral antibiotics may be needed for several weeks.

So how can the complications be avoided or minimised? Firstly, go to a reputable clinic where the treatment is being carried out by an experienced medical professional. Do not go to a cut-price clinic. The reason they are selling treatments cheaply is they have not spent much time or money on their own training and education. They are not using high-quality products and they won’t be able to deal with complications if they occur.

‣ I, Doctor Q have spent a lot on my training so you can be confident that I use the latest techniques in administering dermal fillers.

‣ I do not inject filler in the most dangerous area which is the glabella – the 11 lines between the eyebrow. I feel wrinkle-relaxing injections are best suited here.

‣ I use a blunt cannula in high-risk areas such as the tear trough

‣ I always pull back the plunger of the syringe to ensure I am not in a blood vessel

‣ I inject slowly to reduce the risk of pushing filler into vessels

‣ I always keep emergency supplies to use in case a problem occurs

‣ I disinfect the injection site to reduce infection risk

‣ I use the best quality fillers that integrate well with the skin

What is the downtime with dermal fillers?

Any swelling and bruising usually settle within 2 weeks. The filler has also integrated with the skin over time.

How long do dermal fillers last?

Results last 9-24 months. The longevity depends on how fast your body breaks it down and the amount of filler used.

How much do dermal fillers cost?

Fillers are usually priced per 1ml syringe. At Luxe Skin we only use the premium Juvederm Vycross range of fillers. 1ml is priced at £350.

Liquid Facelift v Surgical Facelift?

A surgical facelift only addresses one concern which is loose skin. It does not make the face more contoured or address volume loss around the cheeks, eyes and temples. Also it is a high-risk procedure with complications associated with surgery and anaesthesia. If the surgery results in any facial asymmetry, it can be difficult to correct and requires repeat surgery. The downtime after the surgery can be 4-6 weeks. It costs £6k – £8k and results last around 5 years. It can often give a “stretched” appearance to the face.

‣ Full face rejuvenation using Juvederm has the following advantages

‣ Literally no downtime. You can go back to work the next day

‣ Much smaller risk profile than surgery

‣ Treatment can be easily “topped up” and corrected in case of asymmetry

‣ Fillers are reversible and can be dissolved using Hyalase. Hence complications are easier to correct.

‣ Addresses the cause of sagginess by replacing volume loss giving a more natural appearance

‣ Easier to maintain with small regular treatments targeting age effects on time

‣ Treatment is tailored so you look less tired and saggy and more contoured and younger

‣ People often say it makes them look 10 years younger

Dermal Fillers vs. Threads

Dermal fillers are best for skin rejuvenation. They add volume, strengthen the skin, reduce lines and folds and lift the face to some extent. Choosing fillers is volume, line reduction and skin youthfulness important to you.

Threads have the most lifting potential. They are best for lifting jowls and mid-face. Threads also stimulate collagen and tighten the skin. Choose threads if a facelift is most important to you.

For best results, we at Luxe Skin combine threads and fillers for the ultimate facelift.
