Dermal Fillers

What Are Dermal Fillers?

This injectable procedure, which has become increasingly common nowadays, reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. The filler is injected beneath the surface and restores volume to the skin, enhancing the facial structure and features at the same time.

Many celebrities are a fan of dermal fillers, such as Katy Perry and Chrissy Teigen, which is not surprising considering the benefits they offer!

Which Results Can I Expect from This Treatment?

Overall, it’s important that you opt for dermal fillers for the right reasons, so discuss your expectations with your aesthetician. Do you want to look more youthful? Do you wish to correct a specific area of your face, such as the skin under your eyes or your chin?

Keep in mind that your results will depend on the area of the face that is treated, how much movement there is in the area, the condition of your skin and the skill of the practitioner.

The Aesthetic Skin Clinic team not only has many years of experience in the beauty industry, but our professionals are also award-winning doctors and surgeons – so put your mind at ease! Our team is highly trained, skilled and knowledge, so you’ll be in great hands.

Which Areas Can Be Treated?

Dermal fillers are typically used for the face. The most commonly treated areas include the naso-labial folds, the frown lines between the eyes, the horizontal lines across the forehead, the vertical lines on the top lip and the definition of the lip border.

Are Dermal Fillers Safe?

The dermal fillers we use at The Aesthetic Skin Clinic (Restylane and Juvéderm) are biocompatible and degradable. They are made from hyaluronic acid, which occurs naturally in the human body, so you can be confident that they’re completely safe.

Can the Filler Be Removed?

All of our procedures are completely reversible if you want to try a new look! We can answer all of your questions about fillers so, if you’re interested in dermal fillers in Belfast, dermal fillers in Jersey and dermal fillers in Guernsey, don’t hesitate to get in touch.

Lip Fillers

What Are Lip Fillers?

Similarly to dermal fillers, the lip fillers we use at The Aesthetic Skin Clinic are hyaluronic-acid based. These fillers are a popular option for people who want fuller, more sensuous lips while maintaining the natural proportions of the face.

Lip fillers are not permanent and can be changed over time to suit your specific preferences. They last around 6 months on average. We use Restylane and the Juvéderm Vycross range, which create soft, elegant and natural-looking results.

Which Results Can I Expect from This Treatment?

Lip fillers offer an immediate effect, and you will also see the results improve as the product settles and integrates with the facial tissue.

How Long Will It Take to Recover from Lip Fillers?

As this is a non-surgical procedure, the downtime associated with it is small. The lips are highly vascular so they may swell up a little or show some bruising, which should go away after a few days.

Are Lip Fillers Safe?

Lip fillers are safe to get done by a professional like The Aesthetic Skin Clinic. We only use the best products in the market and our aestheticians are highly trained and experienced.

Who Can Get Lip Fillers?

Just like with other aesthetic procedures, it’s important that you wait until you’re not pregnant, breastfeeding or ill to get fillers. Apart from that, our fillers are safe and can be used by virtually anyone, as long as they’re of age!

If you have noticed lost volume in your lips as you age, have thin lips or want to enhance the lip shape and size, we can help. We offer lip fillers in Belfast, lip fillers in Jersey and lip fillers in Guernsey and always provide an initial consultation where we discuss your needs and expectations with you.

Anti-Wrinkle Injections

What Are Anti-Wrinkle Injections?

Botox is a type of anti-wrinkle injection made from botulinum toxin. This is a prescribed product that can treat a wide range of medical issues, including excessive sweating, migraines and cerebral palsy.

Botox is commonly used to improve the appearance of wrinkles and lines and, in essence, it relaxes dynamic wrinkles caused by the contraction of muscles, creating a more youthful appearance.

Which Results Can I Expect from This Treatment?

After getting anti-wrinkle injections, you may worry that nothing has changed. However, this is normal, as the product takes between 3 to 10 days to become visible. Botox will last for 3 to 6 months and you’ll notice a marked improvement in the appearance of wrinkles and lines.

Are Anti-Wrinkle Injections Safe?

Botulinum toxin is only applied in small and precise doses. The treatment itself is incredibly safe and used around the world (it’s also the most popular beauty procedure in the USA). As a reputable, qualified professional, we can safely use Botox, so get in touch if you’re interested in this treatment.

Will I look Older if I Stop Getting Anti-Wrinkle Injections?

This is a common misconception that we’re more than happy to debunk. If you choose to stop this or another filler procedure, you can rest assured that your skin won’t look older. You will look just like you did before the treatment.

Who Can Get Anti-Wrinkle Injections?

Botox has been used for over two decades to treat neurological and ophthalmological conditions and disorders, so it’s a safe procedure. However, it’s not recommended for people who are breastfeeding or pregnant.

General Questions You Should Ask

Before getting any type of fillers, be it anti-wrinkle injections or lip fillers, you should ask your practitioner or clinic the following questions:

  • What side effects do the fillers have?
  • What experience does the aesthetician or doctor have?
  • What are the products made of?
  • Are the products safe?
  • Is the clinic or professional regulated by industry bodies?
  • Can you see before and after photos?
  • Are there any emergency procedures in place in case something happens?
  • Is there a consultation before the treatment?
  • What level of aftercare is provided?

You should also ask yourself whether the clinic or aesthetician is the right one for you. Make your decision by checking their previous work, asking questions until you’re satisfied with the answers, read testimonials and ensure they have the right qualifications.
