Over time our skin loses hydration which results in the loss of elasticity forming lines and wrinkles, and this is ever more noticeable when we reach middle age. Dermal fillers are an effective skin treatment for treating deeper lines and wrinkles, but the finer lines and thinner looking crêpey skin that develop around the eye, neck and backs of hands are also problematic areas which can be treated by our wrinkle smoothing treatments.
At Nu, we use the most advanced dermal filler products available. The new generation of fillers are a thinner consistency than traditional fillers, giving a more natural appearance and meaning a larger area can be treated per injection. This of course means less discomfort for the client and an all together better outcome. We mainly use two types of filler; for the cheeks and to add volume to older skin we use Radiesse®, for deeper lines and wrinkles, we use Juvederm ®. Other products may be available on request.
After your consultation with the practitioner, a number of small injections are made along the area to be treated. The area is then massaged to ensure an even distribution of the filler. The process takes approximately 15-20 minutes depending on the area to be treated.
Mild swelling and a slight redness to the skin immediately post procedure may occur, but this should leave between 12 hours to three days. Saunas, sunbeds and direct heat should be avoided for at least 8 hours following treatment, as this can cause a throbbing sensation.
You will see a noticeable change in the skin’s condition and this can usually be seen after just one treatment. Your fillers will normally last between 9 and 12 months depending on your skin condition, the area of treatment and the number of times you have had the treatment before (we find that when clients have had the treatment a number of times, the treatments last longer).
