What facial fillers are available?
Facial fillers are often confused with Anti-Wrinkle Injections. However, they work in a different way and are actually often used in conjunction with Anti-Wrinkle Injections injections to leave a fully rejuvenated appearance.
Mr Paul Tulley only uses the leading dermal filler brands which include Juvederm and Restylane. Both use hyaluronic acid which is actually a substance naturally found within the skin. The results of these injections will last around six to twelve months, before the product is safely broken down by the body.
These filler brands also contain a local anaesthetic, though a separate topical cream based local anaesthetic is also used prior to the injections. This ensures the procedure is as pain-free as possible. Some patients may also have a dental local anaesthetic.
What are the alternatives to facial fillers?
While facial fillers are extremely effective, there may be other procedures that are better suited to your needs. For example, a facelift or brow lift could give you longer-lasting results.
An increasingly popular alternative to facial fillers is fat transfer. Mr Tulley will utilise your own fat, harvested from elsewhere on the body, to fill lines and folds and restore volume. This procedure has been used for many years, but improvements in technology and technique has made results more predictable. It is often preferred because it produces a totally natural rejuvenation, with much longer-lasting results.
