Dermal Fillers & Lip Fillers

Lip Fillers & Dermal Fillers

Dermal fillers are substances injected into lips or the skin to plump it up, or in order to make the skin firmer and smooth out soft lines and wrinkles or even by  strategically placing them in locations to create a lifting effect in the face or on the hands.

Dermal fillers are injected, usually without the need for injecting local anaesthetic. The majority of them now contain local anaesthetic inside the syringe and therefore just by applying topical anaesthetic on the surface of the skin takes away the edge of the pain with an initial injection. We will then start to inject the filler either directly into the lines and wrinkles to plump them out, or to strategic points to give a lifting effect . The dermal filler then remains in the skin, where it binds to water to produce a lift and give firmness to the treated area. Typically, the results of dermal fillers can last six to nine months but this varies from one person to another depending on  the sort of filler used. The filler is gradually broken down and absorbed by the body, so the lines, wrinkles or lips will ultimately return to their previous appearance without top up treatments.

At JR Medical we normally complete a check up for the dermal filler treatment the next day, in two weeks after treatment and in three to six  months after initial treatment.

Our recommended fillers are Teosyal, Juvederm® Ultra and Stylage.

All other brands are prescribed and injected on request.

Hand RejuvenationDermal fillers can also be used for hand rejuvenation treatments. Results will be immediately visible, though there may be some redness and swelling for a little while after. The treatment of facial wrinkles is becoming increasingly common, but the hands are often left neglected and are therefore the giveaway that you've had anti-ageing treatments. We see our hands age before us with each passing day, as they are exposed to environmental damage. Our hands are constantly on display for the world to see. So why would you allow your hands to give your age away, when your face doesn't? Contact us for more information on hand rejuvenation treatments.

One of the more popular uses of dermal fillers are lip fillers. Lip fillers, also known as lip enhancement or lip augmentation, revitalise your lips and plump them to produce that beautifully sensual pout that many men and women strive for. The result can be as full as you like, depending on the amount of lip filler injected.

Not only are lip fillers used to add volume to plump the lips, they can also be used to redefine the shape of the vermillion border and cupid's bow. As everybody's lips are different, and everybody has their own idea of that perfect pout, it takes an artful skill to produce the patient's desired pout, assessing the patient's contour and individual facial features.
