Volumising Filler Injections (hyaluronic acid and calcium hydroxylapatite injectables)

 

Fillers are injectable gel like products containing hyaluronic acid or calcium hydroxylapatite, which can help to restore a healthy, youthful appearance by filling lines and wrinkles or restoring volume.

Hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring molecule found in our soft tissues, it has hydrophilic properties meaning it has the ability to hydrate the extracellular matrix and attract water. The difference between our natural hyaluronic acid in our soft tissues and the injected products is the cross-linking. The injectable hyaluronic acid fillers are more cross-linked which means they remain in the tissue for a much longer period of time (months).

Injection of fillers results in an instant volumising effect which can treat filling defects, scars and restore lost volume in the cheeks and elsewhere in the face. This effect is subsequently replaced by natural stimulation of collagen production by fibroblasts in the dermis which gives a lasting effect to filler treatments.

Calcium hydroxylapatite is utilised in other injectable volumising products like RADIESSE ® for their ability to quickly stimulate fibroblasts production of collagen and encourage remodelling of facial soft tissues.

Various different uses of fillers in the face include volume replacement (e.g. from ageing, congenital defects, atrophy), acne scars and for nose augmentation (non surgical nose-job). Treatment effects are immediate and peak at two weeks and last between 4-12 months depending on various factors which your doctor will discuss with you.

We do not re-treat the same area until full muscle re-animation is achieved, this normally means 6 monthly treatments. Do not book one of our Botox Ⓡ wrinkle relaxing treatments if you have had wrinkle relaxing injections for the same area within the last 5 months. Allowing muscle full re-animation is important as it prevents excessive muscle atrophy!
