Also known as Dermal Fillers or Facial Fillers.
Hyaluronic acid is found naturally in your skin. It is essential for water retention, wound healing & tissue repair.
At Orchard House a filler can:
Firstly we give a topical or local anaesthetic injection to numb the area.
Then Stephanie or David will inject small quantities of filler into the areas needed. The latest techniques, for example, the use of flexible cannulas are used to prevent tissue trauma & avoid multiple injections.
The filler also contains local anaesthetic. So, the process is relatively painless. The effect is instant but it continues to improve over the next 14 days. This because the hyaluronic acid gel integrates into your skin over time.
We only use quality, reputable non-permanent products. All our dermal fillers are FDA approved and have a proven safety profile.
Brands Include: Aliaxin, Restylane & Teoxane
Your face feels fresher and feels more youthful & lifted.
There is a 2 week review after your first treatment to make sure we are both happy with the results. Best to under-treat, than over treat....
Results can last from 6 to 18 months (dependent on the area treated).
How can a filler treatment help?
Fillers can reduce the visibility of wrinkles, creases and lines around the following areas:
Are Fillers safe?
Yes, as long as a qualified professional administers them. At Orchard House Facial Aesthetics, the procedure is carried out in a clinically clean environment. As hyaluronic acid is naturally found in your skin, it makes it extremely biocompatible.
The gel slowly dissolves over time, causing no harm to you.
Is there side effects?
Most side effects are mild and temporary e.g. redness, bruising, mild pain, itching, puckering and slight swelling. They are generally easily concealable and typically resolve completely within 7 -14 days.
You should not have fillers if you have severe allergies, are pregnant or breastfeeding.
Some people on certain medication may not be suitable for treatment or if you are prone to keloid scarring.
Please note: Any injectable procedure will only be undertaken after your face-to-face consultation with Stephanie, during which a full assessment will be carried out and full list of cautions and contraindications discussed.
