Dermal fillers are made from hyaluronic acid which the body continually produces naturally although it reduces with age. It holds 1000 times it’s weight in water within our cells giving deep moisture to the skin. As we age volume is lost from the face because of shrinking of the facial bones causing facial fats pads to drop and thinning of the skin. Volume loss is one of the main factors of visible facial ageing. This is why ageing causes sagging of the face as there is less support for the skin and muscles of the face. This sagging causes jowls and a heaviness in the lower part of the face.

Filler acts to give support and lift to the structure of the skin, helping to halt the ageing process. This gives the full, curved contours we had in our youth, it also reflects light from our skin giving a youthful glow. A contoured cheekbone lifts the facial skin into a youthful curve allowing light reflection from the side of the cheek. For any truly successful rejuvenation programme, the issue of age-related facial volume and contour change has to be addressed. In an aged face, the face appears flattened, droopy and dull with less light reflection. In turn it will make you appear to look tired, gaunt and hollow in the mid-face.

Loss of volume in our cheeks is one of the main causes for the formation of nose to mouth lines. We now understand that by replacing lost cheek volume we can often soften the appearance of these lines. This is why a lift of the upper and outer portion of the cheek is addressed first before the nose to mouth lines are treated directly.

As we age deflation of the lips happens. At A* Aesthetics, we gently re-plump the body of the lip to replace what’s been lost, rather than over-fill with a stiff product that makes the border between lip and skin look ledge-like. There are various techniques dependent on the lip shape at presentation, use of a cannula (blunt tipped) can be very nice to roll the lip outwards and upwards before final refinement with a needle.

There are over 200 types of filler worldwide, with different brands, various levels of quality and products for the whole of the face. At A* Aesthetics we use the Juvéderm Vycross range.

Why Vycross?

The Vycross range is Juvéderm’s premium brand, having full FDA (food and drug administration) approval, thorough clinical trials and safety records. This advanced technology means the product lasts longer. The patient has longer between appointments so a reduced number of times to be injected (great for needle phobics!) and is less cost to the patient longterm.

More benefits include:

  • Less bruising
  • Less swelling
  • Less extrusion force (less pain on injection)
  • Smoother gels (a more natural look)

Frequently Asked Questions

What are dermal fillers?
Dermal fillers provide lift, volume and contour. They consist of hyaluronic acid which is found naturally in the body and holds 1000 times its weight in water meaning the skin is volumised and has long lasting hydration.

Will I look odd?
Current injection techniques focus on different viscosities of product for specific anatomical regions, the critical element is the depth of product injection so results look natural both at rest and importantly animation.

Does it hurt?
Whilst the procedure involves a needle or cannula the vycross range encompasses an anaesthetic in the formula making the treatment much more tolerable. The use of numbing cream prior to the procedure also ensures patient comfort.

What areas are treated?
The most commonly treated areas focus on achieving structure, contour and lift to the face by enhancing the cheek bones, volumising temples and softening nasolabial folds. In terms of refinement that would focus on the lip area and supporting structures again enhancing the natural beauty already present.

More Information

At consultation I take a non-judgemental, informative role where we assess the whole face and conform to the principles of structure, contour and refinement in that order. For example, someone mature in age focusing on enhancing their lips but exhibiting loss of cheek volume and jowling would almost certainly look unnatural if the structure of the face was not addressed initially before restoring youthful lip features.

The Phi principle in beautiPHIcation
The phenomenon of Phi relates to the golden ratio concept originally developed by renaissance artist Leonardo de Vinci. It is commonly found in nature and naturally beautiful people, it helps achieve organic and natural looking compositions that are aesthetically pleasing to the eye. For this reason the use of golden ratio callipers as demonstrated by leading plastic surgeon Dr. Arthur Swift help analyse the ratio of facial features.

The Midas touch

Here at A* Aesthetics we exclusively use the MIDAS instrument which was created and is used by celebrity cosmetic doctor Dr. Esho. The sculpting MIDAS t-bar serves three functions which reduces sharp pain from needle injections by the action of vibration, pressure and cooling. This is based on the Gate control theory of pain. By occupying those pain pathway gates with other sensations (like vibrations, pressure and cold), the feeling of injections are able to slip by our neurological pathways therefore minimising pain.
