Getting dermal fillers in London, in order to reduce the signs of ageing, is becoming increasingly popular. It can be used to treat several different areas of your face and can leave you looking considerably more youthful. If you are fed up of wrinkled skin, or ageing lines around your mouth or face, then booking a consultation appointment with us at The Cosmetic Skin Clinic is easy and will leave you feeling younger and much more confident about your appearance.
Having fillers is a convenient and easy way to improve the appearance of ageing skin. When you have your treatment you will be in and out of our clinic on the same day. The treatment time itself is around half an hour, and there is no recovery time, so it will not interfere with the rest of your day. There are limited side effects too, with most people only experiencing a small amount of swelling or redness, and this is usually easy to conceal.
How you can get rid of ageing lines and wrinkles
Many people assume that if they want to get rid of their wrinkled skin they will have to undergo a surgical procedure. This is not the case, as having dermal fillers in London is a completely non-invasive way of improving your skin to look fresher. The body has a natural supply of hyaluronic acid, but over time, as you age, this supply will decrease. The depletion of this supply is what causes the skin to become saggy, loose, wrinkled and less firm. Ageing can cause many people to feel self-conscious and if your appearance is starting to affect the way you feel on a daily basis it is time to do something about it.
Fillers work by replacing this hyaluronic acid, by injecting it into the areas that you wish to improve. It stimulates the skin and makes it appear tighter and firmer, and gets rid of age lines and wrinkles. Some people wish to have their lips treated, as with age lips can become thin. This can make some people feel self-conscious about smiling and can impact their self-esteem. At The Cosmetic Skin Clinic, we think that everybody should have a body and face that they love and feel proud to show off, and we will do whatever we can to help you achieve your desired look.
You can even have fillers inserted into your tear troughs to reduce the appearance of dark circles under the eyes. It can also help to smooth wrinkles that gather around the eyes, making your eyes appear brighter and more youthful.
Maintaining your look
Unfortunately, dermal fillers in London do not permanently get rid of your wrinkles. After around nine to eighteen months, the hyaluronic acid supply that was provided in the fillers will start to breakdown. Therefore, it is necessary to visit us for a follow-up appointment so we can maintain your youthful appearance and keep you feeling confident. Our professionals will be able to offer you advice on how often you should be receiving treatment, as this can vary from person to person.
