Facial Aesthetics

Dermal Fillers

woman-smiling-2

Among the signs of an aging face is the loss of volume on the cheeks and jawline, and deep folds forming along the sides the mouth.

There is a non-surgical solution to correct these and to restore fullness to cheeks and lips.

Injectable fillers may be used alone or together with Botox to correct these problems. When injected beneath the skin these fillers plump up creased wrinkles and the folds of the skin. This creates an instant plumping effect that takes years off your looks.

The Procedure

The product is injected into the skin with a very fine needle and patients are injected with either a dental injection of local anaesthetic or a topical anaesthetic cream is applied to the skin before treatment.

How long will the results last?

The result from the treatment is immediate and will last about 6 -9 months. Some fillers last a little over a year.

How long do I need to take off work?

There is little down time – you may experience a little redness, bruising and swelling, which can be camouflaged with make- up or you may want to take the day to recover.

Is it safe?

At East End Lodge we never use permanent fillers and the products we use have a demonstrated consistent safety record.

Dr Azizi only uses dermal fillers that have demonstrated long term predictable results with reliable safety.

Juvederm is an injectable hyaluronic acid specially formulated for facial contouring. Hyaluronic acid is a natural, biocompatible substance, which replaces lost volume and rehydrates skin tissue by absorbing 1,000 times its weight in water.

Juvederm is not derived from animals and this reduces the chance of any allergic reaction.

Will it look obvious that I have undergone treatment?

Dr Azizi is happy to have an open discussion about each patient’s desired treatment outcomes and give him or her an honest opinion of the suitability of the treatment.

The treatments will make a real difference but it should be a subtle one – then you can choose whether to tell friends and family the secret of your great looks!

Botox treatments create a fresher more youthful appearance without surgery

Facial lines are caused by the repeated use of the underlying facial muscles, which over time results in a permanent crease or wrinkle.

One of the best-known treatments for removing wrinkles from your forehead and around the eyes, nose and mouth is Botox. Botox is muscle relaxant that is used to relax and soften “frown” lines around the forehead and eyes.

Where Botox is injected it reduces the facial movements, which result in wrinkling. This gives a smoother more rested appearance to the face and a fresher more youthful look.

Women typically have more expressive faces and thinner, more delicate skin; they are prone to facial wrinkles but that doesn’t mean men get away with it!

Botox injection is most commonly performed on the upper face and the most common areas treated are the horizontal forehead lines, vertical frown lines between the eyebrows and ‘crows feet’ (or laughter lines). It can also be used for the prevention of migraine and hyperhidrosis (excessive sweating).

The procedure:

The smallest needles are used and the medicine does not sting as much as a local anaesthetic injection. It is a bit like having your eyebrows plucked.

How long will the results last?

You should start to see the effects over 3 – 14 days following the treatment; the main effect is visible at about 7 days. The change after the initial injection lasts between 3 – 5 months for most patients. You will notice a gradual fading of the effect and at this stage can return for a repeat treatment, perhaps 2 -3 times a year.

Regular treatments prevent the skin from creasing and that can keep new wrinkles from forming as well as smoothing out the existing ones. Clinical trials have shown that over time the duration of the effect increases, resulting in less treatments being needed to maintain the result.

How long do I need to take off work?

As soon as your treatment is over you can resume normal activities. There are some precautions and you will be advised about these; they include not massaging the area treated for 12 hours and keeping your head upright for 4 hours after injection. No yoga classes or shoe shopping!

As a quick and effective treatment, with excellent results and virtually no down time it is perfect for those patients who have signs of facial ageing but would prefer not to have surgical intervention.

Is it safe?

Botox injections are currently the most popular cosmetic procedure with over 1.6 million botox injections being performed last year. The cosmetic uses of Botox were discovered by chance in the late 1980s and it has been safely and effectively used in medicine for over 30 years. The treatment has a well-established safety record. In the USA the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) licences Botox for cosmetic use.

I do not want a face without expression

The best results are achieved when botox is injected to a level which does not cause complete freezing of the muscles so that some movement is still possible. At East End Lodge we aim for a subtle look that makes you look fresher and keeps friends and family guessing.

For best facial rejuvenation botox treatment is combined with dermal fillers to eliminate fine lines and restore volume lost due to ageing.
