dermal fillers

45 minutes  I  from £200

Dermal Fillers are most commonly used to plump out lines and to restore lost volume in the face and lips. Specialist techniques will rejuvenate the neck, décolletage and the back of the hands. When used in a subtle manner, Dermal Fillers will turn back the clock by several years - but not alter someone's appearance. Lichfield Face Clinic uses non-animal Hyaluronic Acid Dermal Fillers that replicate the normal substances found in skin, giving a soft and natural looking result. Only high quality, leading brands of Dermal Fillers such as the Juvederm and the Belotero range are used at Lichfield Face Clinic, giving reliable, safe & long-lasting results whilst reducing potential side effects & complications.

 

Dermal Fillers can be used in different ways. For some people, targeting & eradicating individual lines on the face will immediately rejuvenate the skin. For others, a combined approach of restoring volume to the face with "scaffolding" of weak areas will produce the best appearance. Everyone is different! Lichfield Face Clinic provides a personal treatment plan which may include targeting individual lines with volume restoration to produce the best outcome for each individual. Treatments are usually spread out over several months to ensure discreet and subtle improvements.

 

Although the results of a Dermal Filler are seen immediately, the appearance continues to improve over 3 - 6 weeks. The effects are long-lasting, with the results visible for 12 - 18 months depending on the area treated, the individual and their lifestyle.
