Dermal fillers

For lines that appear at rest. Gives volume and hydration for lips, cheeks, tear troughs and nose to mouth lines.

What are Dermal Fillers?

Dermal Fillers are made up of hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring substance found in the skin that gives volume and hydration. When we age, the levels of hyaluronic acid decrease and the skin begins to lose its firmness and fullness. In addition to providing volume, they can improve the hydration of the skin from the inside out. Not all hyaluronic acids are the same, each brand has a range of ‘tissue tailored’ products designed for specific results. One size does not fit all. At The Face we only use high quality fillers that have undergone years of research. The type of filler that is suitable for you, will be assessed at your initial consultation.

How Does it Work?
Hyaluronic Acid dermal fillers are a clear sterile gel in a syringe for injecting into the skin providing instant correction for lines that appear at rest. Hyaluronic Acid attracts and binds water in the skin, providing volume and hydration, but also cushioning and supporting collagen and elastin fibres. At The Face we are aiming to enhance your natural look.

How Long Will it Last?
Depending on the area treated and the product used the results will last for 6-12 months.

Does It Hurt?
We apply a topical anaesthetic to the area so the treatment should not be painful.

What Areas Can Be Treated
Lips – We can give a natural and rejuvenated look by adding volume to thin lips, Correcting asymmetry and creating definition to help with smokers lines or loss of the vermillion border.
Cheek – The cheeks are a key area for rejuvenating the face. As we age we often lose volume due to fat loss and collagen reduction which makes the face look flatter. This treatment can create more prominent defined cheekbones and volumes the cheeks.
Tear Trough – Tear Trough Fillers helps to reduce the “tired look” which are the hollows under your eyes with darker circles.
Non-Surgical Rhinoplasty -Nose filler can even out bumps, straighten and correct nose shape without the need for surgery.
Chin & Jawline -Chin filler can lengthen and enhance the lower face to create a more balanced profile. Jawline filler can enhance the chin and jowl area, resulting in a more defined & prominent jawline.

During & After Treatment
The treatment takes about 30 minutes, but your full appointment length will be longer so we can apply some topical anaesthetic to the area. You will see immediate results, although sometimes a little bit of swelling will naturally occur & some bruising is possible. We will give you a full list of do’s and don’ts & after care advice, but if you are concerned about anything, please call us. We will ask you to come back for a review 4 weeks after your treatment so we can assess the results. You can return to work immediately, although we recommend that you don’t massage the area or apply make up for 12 hours and avoid extreme temperatures & alcohol for the rest of the day.

Strawberry Lift

The Worlds 1st Laser for double chins with instant painless results.

I am honestly blown away by the results of my first treatment – it’s like a face and neck lift but completely non-surgical. There was absolutely no downtime and I felt very relaxed during the whole procedure. I genuinely cannot wait for my next Strawberry Lift treatment!"

What is the Strawberry Lift?
Double chins are a common complaint that can be tricky to shift and hard to hide, but now the revolutionary new non-invasive Double Chin Reduction Treatment by Strawberry Lift will banish double chins and give you a smoother and more toned jawline. Thanks to the innovative laser application, double chins can be a thing of the past in just four treatments.

How Does it Work?
The clinically proven, non-invasive laser treatment penetrates the skin to selectively target the fat cells underneath, leaving blood vessels, nerves and other tissue undisturbed. When the fat cells absorb the energy from the lasers they release water, glycerol and free fatty acids. The harmless fat cell content is then removed from the body through lymphatic drainage, giving results that get better over time.
Additionally, ultrasound helps to gently tone the jaw line causing the tissue protein to coagulate and produce new collagen

How Long Will it Last?
Results last 18 months. Due to the natural ageing process, maintenance treatments may be required.

How Many Treatments are Required?
Results will be seen after the first treatment, however a course of 2-4 treatments is recommended with 2 week intervals. Maintenance treatments can be scheduled 3-6 months after completion of a full course if required.

Does it Hurt?
You will experience zero pain and zero discomfort. During the laser process you will feel a comfortable warming feeling in the treatment area, which has been known to make some clients fall asleep.

During & After Treatment
Treatment time is 30 minutes, although a longer appointment is scheduled for your initial consultation. There is no down time and you will be able to return to your normal activities straight away. After your treatment it is essential to perform a minimum of 20 minutes cardiovascular exercise to retain the results. We also recommend that you avoid extreme heat for 24 hours and no sun exposure for 48 hours after treatment. Any other laser treatments, including hair removal should be avoided throughout the Strawberry Lift Course. We will give you a full list of do’s and dont’s & after care advice, but if you are concerned about anything, please call us.
