Treatments for lines and wrinkles  

Consultation

When you approach Skin and Face Clinics Limited you will be offered a consultation and advice about the treatments or procedures we offer.

Annie believes that somewhere around 35 plus years is the ideal age to start anti-wrinkle treatments and Skin and Face Clinics Limited is guided by these principles.

During the consultation you will be:

  • Offered advice and guidance, based on Annie's considerable clinical and facial aesthetics experience, about what might be the best procedures to achieve the results you are looking for.
  • Fully informed about the limitations of any procedures, your suitability for them and the potential risks and benefits of various treatment options.

The quality and extent of our service

Annie combines her considerable experience of facial aesthetics, with a detailed understanding of the way faces can age over time, to deliver stunningly successful, age defying results.

Treatments for lines and wrinkles – Dermal Fillers

Annie offers minimally invasive Dermal Filler treatments using Allergan's Juvederm Ultra® range including Juvederm Smile®, Voluma®, and Volbella® and Volift®.  Qmed's Restylane®, Perlane® and Restylane Vital® ranges, and Merz' Radiesse® and Belotero® range.

There are many ways that Dermal Fillers can be used to reduce the signs of ageing and rejuvenate your face.  As the face ages volume reduces and tends to move down, leaving some areas looking ‘deflated’ and other areas lined.

Dermal Fillers are injectable treatments which can help to add volume to cheeks and lips, re-contour your nose, cheeks and chin, and reduce the appearance of tear troughs and jowls.

Are you a candidate for Dermal Fillers?

You may be a candidate for Dermal Fillers if you would like to put volume into areas of your face such as lips or cheeks; if you want to reduce the appearance of lines, such as nose to mouth lines, or mouth to chin lines; or if you want to combat the appearance of hollowing or flattening, such as under the eyes (so-called tear troughs), in the temple or cheek region.  Advanced practitioners like Annie may also be able to place fillers to pull back and support the tissues of the face in a so-called ‘liquid facelift’ technique.

What are Dermal Fillers?

Dermal Fillers is the collective name given to injectable substances that are used to add volume under the skin, usually in the dermal layer.  There are in excess of 70 dermal fillers available in the UK as the medico-legal requirements for them to come on to the market in Europe are less rigorous than in the US.

Annie’s preference is to use Fillers that have obtained Federal Drug Administration (FDA) approval in the US, as she believes the requirements for this are far more stringent and give her greater confidence in recommending them and using them for her clients. There are exceptions, however, which are Volbella® and Volift®.

Are Dermal Fillers safe for you?

In Annie’s experience, Dermal Fillers can be administered safely to most people.  However, it cannot be emphasised enough that you should only be treated by someone who is medically qualified and who is able to understand how the Dermal Filler may affect your general health, and particularly, how it may affect any medical conditions you may have or medicines you are taking.
