Replicating the effect of the body’s natural collagen
Dermal fillers can be used as an alternative to – but also in conjunction with – Botox©. Essentially, Dermal fillers are a facial aesthetic treatment that is injected into the skin to lift, contour or create volume. The result is a more symmetrical and youthful appearance.
At Natasha Lucy Clinics, we only use the highest quality dermal fillers that consist of hyaluronic acid, which is a natural product of the human body. As the acid you naturally possess declines with age, it is a simple procedure to replace it with our non-permanent synthesised version.
Hyaluronic acid is a polysaccharide (which is basically a very large sugar!) It occurs in the connective tissue throughout our bodies and about half of it resides in the skin. It is one of the major components of the framework which supports our skin cells, and it also has an important role in retaining moisture. Just one molecule can hold up to a thousand times its own weight in water. Not surprisingly, as age starts to rob us of our supply of hyaluronic acid, our appearance suffers.
Fillers are a particularly useful anti-ageing treatment, reducing the appearance of mild to deep wrinkles and restoring lost volume in areas such as the lower facial region. In addition, dermal fillers can be used to create fuller lips and create a more balanced facial profile, shaping areas such as cheeks, chin and jawline.
When it comes to dermal fillers, we adopt a ‘less is more’ approach and strongly believe in the power of subtle ‘tweakments’ which improve rather than drastically alter your appearance. Dermal fillers are a semi-permanent treatment lasting approximately 6-12 months.
Am I a suitable client?
Dermal fillers are primarily used for facial rejuvenation and fine lines and wrinkles to replace deep facial volume and structure. At Natasha Lucy Clinics we do not treat patients that are pregnant or breastfeeding.
Which regions can be enhanced?
Dermal fillers improve your appearance by replicating the effect of the body’s natural collagen, which diminishes with age, resulting in a loss of shape and support in many areas of the body.
The most obvious benefit is to the face, as the depletion of collagen leaves one with a drawn or sunken appearance. But dermal fillers are a very effective way to reverse the effects of ageing in hands, lips, neck and upper chest, reducing lines and wrinkles and restoring shape and body.
What can I expect during treatment?
This procedure will take between 45 mins to 1 hr. You may experience some slight discomfort, but Natasha and her team are highly trained medical practitioners and aim to put you at ease, talking you through each stage of the treatment. As an experienced aesthetics practitioner, Natasha has performed thousands of treatments on varying patients and is expert in dermal fillers. Rest assured, you are in the safest of hands!
What can I expect after treatment?
Two weeks after treatment we will want to see you to check on your progress and if necessary, suggest a follow up treatment. Other than that, there is little to no downtime and you can continue with you daily life, feeling rejuvenated both inside and out, confident that the results could last for as long as 18 months.
Will friends and family notice I’ve undergone the procedure?
Most of the time most family and friends will not notice any aesthetic treatment. However, they will most likely comment on your more youthful, refreshed look.
Amazing treatment with Natasha. The only person I would ever trust, she’s simply the best.
Amazing results as always! I would not visit anyone else but Natasha. I trust her implicitly and her quality of work never ceases to amaze me. Natasha’s bedside manner is second to none. She is kind, reassuring and incredibly professional. I cannot speak highly enough.
Never did I dream I would get the results I did in just one visit to Natasha. I am so pleased with my new lips. Such a friendly and professional service. Thank You.
I love Natasha’s work. I’ve been back numerous times and would never go to anyone else. She’s so professional and makes you feel so warm and welcome.
Natasha was absolutely amazing. I was really nervous but she put me instantly at ease and was professional, warm and reassuring throughout the appointment. Just 48 hours on, and I have no swelling or bruising and am totally over the moon with the results. 100% I’ll be back in 3 months time. I cannot thank you enough.
