DERMAL FILLERS

 

What are dermal fillers?

Dermal fillers treatment involves injecting a medically developed solution under the skin with a fine needle to enhance facial features and plump and fill lines, grooves or sunken areas. At Aesthetic Angels we only use high quality CE Marked products.

Administered correctly by a medical professional, dermal fillers can subtly smooth, soften, contour and tone the skin to restore a youthful youthful appearance. 

Where can dermal fillers be used?

Dermal fillers are used to treat a range of skin concerns, including lack of volume and shallow to deep wrinkles and folds. Popular areas to add volume, shape and fullness to include the lips, cheeks and bridge of the nose. For smoothing, adding volume, plumping lines and wrinkles, popular treatment areas include around the forehead, tear troughs, mouth (smile, marionette and lipstick lines), jawline and chin.

Types of dermal fillers

We offer the following types of dermal filler treatments:

  • Cheek fillers – add volume and lift to your cheeks.

  • Non-surgical rhinoplasty – reshape your nose with a non-surgical nose job.

  • Tear trough fillers – instantly revive and refresh your under eyes, reducing dark circles and hollows.

  • Lip fillers – add extra volume, shape and plumpness to lips.

  • Jawline and chin – to define the jawline and chin area.

  • Wrinkles - to add volume to deep or fine lines.

  • Marionettes - to fill these wrinkles out and lift the edge of mouth.

  • Smile lines- to fill the smile lines (nose to mouth lines).

How long do treatments take?

The treatment time will vary, normally taking between 30 - 60 minutes.

What is the difference between the different filler brands?

For lip fillers we offer Revolax, Juvederm, Teosyal, Juvederm Volift and Restylane.

Juvederm is a nice soft filler giving natural results and generally lasts 6-10 months.

Revolax comes in fine and deep. Fine is very similar to Juvederm giving nice natural results and generally lasts 8-12 months, whereas deep is thicker and gives a fuller more structured look normally lasting 10-18 months. 

Teosyal is a slightly thicker filler then Juvederm giving a fuller look, this filler generally lasts 6-10 months.

Restyalne is a softer filler giving natural results that generally last 6-9 months.

Juvederm Volift is a very soft filler with high cross linking meaning it gives the soft natural look but lasts really well, generally 12-18 months.

Generally the thicker the filler the more swelling you will experience.

Of course everyone is different and how quickly their body breaks the filler down will vary from individual to individual.

What is the after care?

Dermal fillers can take 2 weeks to fully settle.

You will experience quite a lot of swelling for the first 2 days post treatment, this swelling normally will get worse over the first 24 hours and then slowly start to resolve after.

You may also bruise after this treatment.

There are steps you can take to avoid bruising and swelling. By avoiding sunbeds, alcohol, some medications and smoking for 72 hours prior to treatment.

After your treatment you will need to keep the area clean for 48 hours, this includes no smoking, alcohol consumption or applying any products unless otherwise advised. 

You will also have to avoid saunas, sunbeds and swimmoing pools post treatment for 48 hours.

What if I dont like the result?

Patient satisfaction is our main priority at Aesthetic Angels, we will work with you to create the look you desire.

However if for any reason you are not happy with the results, we will administer a solution called Hyalaise that dissolves the filler almost instantly, leaving no lasting damage or effect.

Fat Dissolving

 

”AQUALYX” is one of the most popular and effective fat removal and body sculpting procedures. It is for those who want to loose fat at stubborn areas of the body.

The human body naturally stores fat, subcutaneous fat, in order to supply energy in times of need. Every body distributes the subcutaneous body fat by a genetically determined pattern. In almost all cases this inherent distribution cannot be remedied by a special diet or increased physical exercise. Aqualyx injections are very effective and is a non-invasive treatment for face and body sculpting. If you do not want invasive surgery and cannot afford the down time and discomfort of invasive liposuction, this is a great treatment to consider.

INDICATIONS FOR AQUALYX™

AQUALYX™ is used for the dissolution of fat deposits. It can be administered over the entire body, except the area around the eyes

Face : double chin, prejowl sulcus

Body : upper arms, armpits, waist, hips, saddlebags, knees, shackles, augmented fat deposits located on buttocks, chest and inner thighs

Other : lipoma, buffalo hump

THE TREATMENT

AQUALYX™ is an injection procedure that is conducted as follows:
• Comprehensive consultation
• Involved discussion and signing of patient consent form
• Marking of the affected area
• Disinfection
• Injection of AQUALYX™ in the subcutaneous fat deposit
• An ultrasound machine is applied to enhance the penetration of medication into fat cell for better results
• Follow-up treatment after further consultation 

AFTER THE TREATMENT

After a treatment with AQUALYX™ :
• The treated area should not be exposed to direct heat (sauna, sun, etc.) or severe cold
• Physical exercise should be avoided for about 4 to 5 days.
• Application of cosmetics to the treated area should be avoided for at least 12 hours.
• Intake of anti-inflammatory drugs (Ibuprofen etc.) should be avoided
• Bruising may develop within the treated area.
• Post treatment effects may occur to the treated area such as: itching and burning sensations, feeling of pressure, minor aches, pains and swelling

Profhilo

Profhilo is the first BDDE-free stabilised injectable hyaluronic acid (HA) based product for treating skin laxity.

With one of the highest concentrations of HA on the market (64mg / 2ml) it is not only boosting and hydrating the skin, but also remodels the ageing and sagging tissue.

Profhilo delivers great results as a treatment on its own or in combination with other aesthetics treatments currently on offer.

How does Profhilo work?

As a stabilised product Profhilo lasts in the skin around 28 days. During this time the stimulation of 4 different types of collagen and elastin takes place by slow release of HA.

The stimulation results in significant tissue improvement. Therefore we cannot say that Profhilo is a skin booster as it also has a significant tightening / lifting effect on the tissue.

UNIQUE PRODUCT

There are many characteristics that make Profhilo unique from anything else available on the market right now. There is no BDDE content. It is thermally cross-linked generating stabilised hybrid co-operative complexes of H-HA and L-HA. Despite its high HA content, it has a low inflammatory profile coupled with pro-healing properties backed by clinical studies. To fully understand this new concept in anti-ageing medicine we have to take a look at the technology first.

 


Profhilo contains 32mg of low molecular weight HA (80-100Kda) and 32 mg of high molecular weight HA (1100-1400Kda). This gives one of the highest concentration of HA on the market totalling 64 mg of HA in a 2ml prefilled syringe. 

How is Profhilo stabilised?

Profhilo is developed by using a patented technology resulting in hybrid cooperative complexes between high molecular weight HA and low molecular HA without the use of any chemical cross-linking compounds. These complexes increase the stability of HA to enzymatic and mechanical degradation.

What are the advantages?

In Profhilo, L-HA is released slowly from the HA hybrid complexes and therefore does not trigger the first inflammatory cytokines making it very biocompatible. It also increas¬es patient comfort during and after treatment and provides hydration to the skin especially in the epidermis - the Hydro effect.

H-HA in Profhilo provides a stable HA architecture in the dermis. This gives a volumetric effect - the Lift effect.

Another advantage of the stable co-operative hybrid complex when compared to H-HA and L-HA is the increase in the ex¬pression levels of type I and type III collagen in fibroblast and type IV and VII collagen in keratinocytes.

This results in improved skin quality and skin hydration both in the dermis and epidermis. There is also increased production of endogenous HA and elastin giving the skin a more youthful look.

What to expect

To maximise the diffusion in the malar and sub-malar areas:

• The BAP were specifically chosen in anatomically respective areas
• The dilution phenomenon of the product itself
• 5 injections per side
• Reduced pain (slow injection)
• Lower possibility of bruising or hematoma
• Reduced number of treatment sessions
• Greater patient compliance

Mesotherapy

Mesotherapy is one of the most popular skin rejuvenation techniques in the aesthetic market, it vastly improves the appearance of lacklustre skin and can also aid in the improvement of skin concerns.

 

The treatment works by directly introducing potent mixtures of vitamins, minerals and active ingredients to deeper layers of the skin, as a result the skin appears plumper and achieves a radiant glow.

The treatment uses very fine needles to administer a combination of vitamins, hyaluronic acid, plant extracts and enzymes in to the support layer of the skin, also known as the dermis. This is something that cannot be achieved by using skincare only.

Mesotherapy promotes the production of the building blocks of the skin, as well as stimulating your skin’s metabolism, resulting in a rejuvenated, firmer skin. This popular treatment corrects the underlying issues such as poor circulation and inflammation that can cause skin damage.

A course of mesotherapy treatments is required to achieve optimal results. There is no preparation time and minimal downtime.
