Injections that fill and smooth out the signs of ageing, balancing the structure of the face
What are dermal fillers?
Dermal fillers are injected under the skin’s surface to smooth out wrinkles and build volume in the structures of the face reduced by the ageing process. Dermal fillers contain hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring substance already present in your body that attracts and retains moisture in your skin. Dermal fillers are increasingly popular. They are non-surgical, avoid the need for any cutting, and they’re definitely not only for celebrities!
Immaculate Touch offers dermal fillers for:
- Lip augmentation and fuller looking lips
- Nasolabial Fold rejuvenation (also called smile lines, these run from the side of the nose to the corners of the mouth)
- Marionette (bracket line) rejuvenation
- Chin / jawline profile balancing
- Smoothing your cheeks /mid face area
- Tear Trough rejuvenation (plumping the ‘hollow’ area between your eye and cheek)
Immaculate Touch also offers dermal fillers for non-surgical rhinoplasty.
Why choose a dermal filler?
The ageing process affects us all in different ways. Dermal fillers are commonly used to ‘fill in’ unwanted creases, folds and troughs in the face. Common areas suitable for dermal fillers include smile lines (these run from the side of the nose to the mouth) and ‘marionette’ or ‘bracket’ lines (from the corner of the nose to the mouth area). They also create an increase in volume in the cheeks and lips, or a more sculpted chin or jawline.
A subtle, non-surgical procedure you will love
Many of us have an area of our face that we would like to enhance with more volume, but don’t want to face surgery. The results of dermal fillers are very effective, subtle and gentle rather than over dramatic, giving you a confidence boost without going too far. Often people aren’t aware that you’ve had a dermal filler treatment, but will comment on how vibrant, glowing and youthful you look.
In reality, most people don’t seek a major transformation in their appearance with dermal fillers. At Immaculate Touch we aim for our treatment to gently ‘ease away’ those problem lines. This can boost your self-esteem and attract genuinely positive comments from friends and family.
You may experience mild to moderate pain, or perhaps a burning sensation. Rest assured, anaesthetic creams are always applied before any dermal filler treatment to minimise any discomfort.
The results are immediate. However, as there will be some swelling it will take 2 weeks before you see the true results.
Dermal fillers are not suitable for women who are pregnant or breastfeeding. If you are using any blood-thinning medications, please check with your doctor.
This will depend on each area, or if you have had multiple treatments already. Lips initially last 3-6 months, or up to 12 months if you have had multiple injections. Facial dermal fillers can last up to 12 months – or up to 2 years after multiple treatments.
We want your treatment to be as successful as possible. Due to the nature of the procedure you must attend a consultation with our registered clinician to ensure that you are suitable for the injections. Immaculate Touch is a member of the Association of Regulated Aestheticians and we are fully licensed and insured. Rest assured, all the products we use are approved and regulated.
Definitely. Men are affected by the ageing process too, and are increasingly booking dermal filler treatments to look their best and present themselves well. And why not? Plumper, healthier and younger looking skin is relevant to both men and women.
Smoking and alcohol should be avoided at least 6-12 hours before your treatment to minimise bruising. After your treatment we advise that you avoid exercise and extremes of temperature (including hot showers and saunas) for 24 hours. You should also avoid sun exposure (including sunbeds) for the following week.
Unfortunately, this treatment is not suitable if you have keloid scarring.
