Dermal Fillers are a group of gel substances which are used in facial aesthetics to contour, add volume or plump up areas where wrinkles and folds have appeared due to ageing or scarring. Dermal fillers are usually based on Hyaluronic Acid (HA) which occurs naturally in our skin and joints to hydrate and lubricate. Unfortunately we produce less HA as we age, which leads to dehydration, lack of volume, drooping and deepening of lines and wrinkles. HA binds with water increasing hydration.
Dermal Fillers can be administered by anyone, it is up to the consumer to check their training and qualifications. It is possible to set yourself up as an injector after a couple of hours ‘training’ with no knowledge of the underlying anatomy of the face. Without knowledge of the placement of underlying blood vessels, dermal fillers treatments can lead to blockage of these vessels which prevents oxygenation of facial tissue and subsequent tissue death.
Virtually any adult can have filler treatment either as an anti aging treatment or to enhance naural features such as lips or cheeks. Anyone with a previous allergic reaction to a Dermal Filler or someone with a allergy to Lidocaine MAY still be treated at after consultation.
Following your treatment you can expect some local swelling and maybe bruising, a cold compress may help ease this, and arnica cream may be recommended to encourage the bruise to come out. It is often asked that you avoid any vigorous exercise or sun exposure for 24-48hrs.
Dermal Fillers are long-lasting but not permanent, depending on the product used they usually last between 6-8 months to 18 months but this can vary for different individuals. Injection efficiency also influences the longevity as does your skin’s ability to build up natural collagen.
There are well over a hundred fillers available on the European market and some are not manufactured to the highest standards, we only use trusted fillers from highly reputable manufacturers. We are always available for follow up appointments and advice. We always administer treatments in a hygienic, safe and clean environment. We may prescribe antibiotics in certain cases.
DERMAL FILLER SIDE EFFECTS
Dermal filler treatment side effects are rare and usually transient, they have an excellent safety profile when injected by an experienced doctor. It is possible to suffer bruising and temporary swelling at the injection site.
More serious side effects occur if the dermal filler is mistakenly injected into a blood vessel. This subsequently obstructs blood flow and oxygen supply to the surrounding tissue which leads to tissue necrosis.
Occasionally, too much filler may be injected into the treatment area and the client will request that some of it is removed.
Removal of HA dermal fillers (or hyaluronic acid) is achieved by the use of an enzyme hyaluronidase. There are other dermal fillers that cannot be removed with hyaluronidase as they are not HA products. Dr Charlson can see you in London in Harley Street, Marylebone, Chelsea and Canary Wharf.
Our clinics are easily accessible to areas such as Battersea, Westminster, Belgravia, Mayfair, Marylebone, Bloomsbury, Canary Wharf, Isle of Dogs, Limehouse,
Hyaluronidase will remove unwanted dermal filler. The filler may need to be removed for a variety of reasons such as adverse effects, over treatment or personal preference. Doctors are the ONLY practitioners that can legally stock hyaluronidase as it is a POM, this means they are the only practitioners that can provide a comprehensive, professional after care service.
Hyaluronidase can rapidly reverse the effects of hyaluronic acid fillers. It is a very safe product. When used in small doses, it can quickly reverse the effect of the most common fillers such as Restylane and Juvederm. It has no visible effects itself and when the filler is gone, the net result will be a return to the pre-filler correction state. It does NOT result in the loss of natural HA in the skin.
WEAK CHIN AUGMENTATION
Men look more masculine with a square jaw and strong chin. Paul says “We are able to use dermal filler treatment to augment a weak or receding chin. A more clearly defined chin adds symmetry to your face and effectively created a border between the face and the neck improving attractiveness. Similarly a female chin needs a point to accentuate the heart shaped face and the right proportions to the face. Many selfies are frontal view but side profile is vital so when treating chins and jaw lines it is essential to regard all proportions and eliminate unwanted characteristics such as a witches chin. This can be achieved with skilled use of dermal filler treatment”
We use dermal fillers such as Radiesse an FDA approved filler used by a many male actors to shape the jaw line increasing the width of the angle of the jaw, making the jaw line sharper and more pronounced and strengthening the chin . This provides satisfying results in most men It is a 30 minute procedure using cannulae rather than needles for less pain, bruising and better safety.
If your wavy jawline is due to localised collagen loss, a dermal filler such as Radiesse offered by Dr Paul Charlson at Intoskin, Canary Wharf can be injected into the dent just in front of the jowl, creating a smooth line for about a year. Sometimes this is part of a liquid facelift, also enhancing the chin and entire jawline, while replumping the cheeks to recreate youthful proportions.Sometimes he adds in some botulinum toxin to weaken the muscle that creates popply chin which some people develop with age.. A nefertiti neck lift with botox or masseter (cheek muscle) reduction can also be added.
The effects of using dermal filler to strengthen the jaw line and improve a weak chin lasts around 6 to 9 months.
