Dermal Fillers & Lip Fillers

Lip Fillers & Dermal Fillers in Essex

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.

How do Dermal Fillers work?

Dermal fillers work by smoothing and plumping facial lines, wrinkles and folds.

As we age our skin loses its natural substance of Hylaronic Acid. This causes the skin to lose its plumpness, and elasticity and to develop lines and wrinkles.

The dermal filler will remain in the skin where it binds to water to produce a lift and give firmness to the treated area.

At JR Medical we have 2 methods of administering the dermal fillers. These are:-

  • Needle - injected directly into the lines and wrinkles
  • Cannula - A needle makes an entry point for the cannula to be inserted which can then travel underneath to strategic points to give a lifting effect.  

In your consultation, the Doctor will assess and advise which method would best suit you and achieve the best results for you.

Are there any side effects from Dermal Fillers?

You can experience the slight reactions listed below after treatment. However, these will soon subside as the filler settles into your skin. These can vary from one person to another.

  • bruising
  • tenderness
  • swelling
  • redness
  • itching

Is the treatment painful?

The needle used is very fine, however, with all injections, there may be some slight discomfort during/after the injection. We do apply a numbing cream prior to treatment to minimise any discomfort and also the majority Dermal Fillers 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.

How long will the treatment take?

We ask that you arrive to your appointment with no makeup on. The area is thoroughly cleaned and a numbing cream is applied for 30-60 mins prior to the treatment. The time for the treatment then depends on the size of the area to be treated. This is approximately 10-30 minutes.

Can I wear make-up after the treatment?

If the Doctor has used the needle method you can apply makeup 2 hours post-treatment. For Cannula method, we recommend waiting 24 hours before applying makeup.

How long does it last?

Typically, the results of dermal fillers can last six to nine months or even a year, however, this varies from one person to another. The filler is gradually broken down and absorbed by the body over time, so the lines, wrinkles or lips will ultimately return to their previous appearance without top-up treatments. It is recommended to have touch up or repeat injections to help optimise the results to last longer.

What aftercare will I receive?

​After the treatment, we normally book you in for a checkup/massage of the area for the following day. The Doctor will recommend any painkillers if necessary or give you a topical cream to take home. We then see you 2 weeks after the treatment for a final check on everything and will recommend a review after 6 months.

Hand Rejuvenation Treatments

Hand Rejuvenation

Dermal 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.

Lip Fillers 

One of the more popular uses of dermal fillers is 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.

The use of lip fillers

Not only are lip fillers used to add volume to plump the lips, but 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.
