It’s no secret that our faces change as we get older. That can sometimes be most evident in our skin, as wrinkles and deep lines begin to appear. For fighting the signs of ageing, there are few better treatments than dermal fillers, and on that note there are few people better to do it than our team at AP Skincare!
Dermal fillers are fantastic for plumping skin, smoothing out wrinkles and filling deep laughter lines. They’re famed by our clients for their ability to restore youthful fullness to the face, increasing the definition of lips and cheeks. It’s one of our most popular skincare treatments here at AP Skincare, and our own skincare expert Dr Prasad has been conducting successful dermal filler treatments throughout her career.
We’re glad you asked! We use the Juvéderm range of products for our derma filler treatments. They’ve been approved by the American Food and Drug Administration, which as you can imagine holds all of its test substances to an extremely high standard. Their approval guarantees a quality safety profile that has a proven track record in keeping your skin looking younger and healthier for longer. What makes Juvéderm stand out amongst other dermal fillers is that it’s naturally compatible with our faces, and less risky than alternative treatments.
The chances for complications are minimal, and the treatment can even be reversed if any issues arise (which is, incidentally, very rare). To further minimise any sort of risk for our clients, we begin each treatment with a detailed consultation, so that we can work out a treatment plan that’s best for you and your skin. This means that we can ensure a customised sculpted look for each client, rather than a one-size fits all solution. The Juvéderm is a clear, colourless injectable gel, which we place via a needle or a cannula.
Our process is straightforward and relatively quick. We begin by taking a comprehensive history of you, taking into account both social and medical factors. This information helps us develop our full treatment plan in just a moment. We’ll also take some pre-op photos, so that you can see the full scope of the transformation afterwards.
During this consultation, our resident expert Dr Prasad will work closely with you to make a final decision on which areas will benefit most from the treatment and can be treated most effectively (as well as covering all the associated costs involved). From here, we’ll apply a local anaesthetic via a cream to maximise your comfort during the procedure. We’ll set to work on the dermal filler, carefully placing it and sculpting it to create your desired look.
And that’s all there is to it! You’ll be able to see the results immediately, and they’ll develop further over the next seven days. We take our aftercare very seriously; all of our clients come in for a secondary visit every fortnight, and of course feel completely free to contact us in the meantime if there’s anything you still need any help or advice with.
The results are reasonably long-lasting; between six months and a year. After that, you’ll probably need to come in for another visit for a top-up. The key thing to remember is that at AP Skincare, we’re here for you throughout the process. After all, at the end of the day it’s about getting the results that suit you!
