Whether it’s for a contoured face, a rejuvenated under-eye area, or kissable lips for Valentine’s day, there are different types of filler you should know about when deciding on where to go for filler in London and for what you wish to achieve.
Did you know that not all filler is made the same? Filler brands use different acids bases for their products. The different acid bases used for filler are calcium hydroxylapatite, polylactic acid and hyaluronic acid. Furthermore, the underlying chemical makeup for a range of products under a brand is also different depending on what the filler is to be used for. A soft filler would be used for lips and studier fillers are more suitable for areas such as cheekbones, chins and jawlines.
Why We Recommend Hyaluronic Acid Filler.
Harley Street Injectables uses Juvederm brand, which uses hyaluronic acid filler for its products. Alice also injects the filler with cannula rather than using a needle as a cannula is more flexible to manoeuvre the filler into the right areas to shape perfectly. The technique is also crucial to the safety of the client, ensuring the filler gets injected into the correct tissue plane. Alice prefers to use filler with hyaluronic acid such as Juvederm because the body can metabolise it better than other products. If there are any complications with the treatment or the client doesn’t like the look, then they can rest assured, knowing that this type of filler will eventually metabolise. Also, over time, your face structure changes. So, by using a hyaluronic acid filler, this ensures you remain happy with your appearance long term. Filler typically lasts between 6-12 months depending on how quickly your body metabolises it. From there, you can decide whether you want to maintain or enhance with any future treatments.
Filler Should Enhance Your Natural Facial Anatomy, Not Leave You Looking ‘Fake’.
There is a misconception that filler will make you look fake. This simply isn’t true if the right filler is being used and you’re working with an experienced injector who has your best interests in mind. Filler gets a bad reputation when it has been used incorrectly by an injector, either because the wrong filler was used for the area or because the injector has not considered the client’s facial anatomy to create a proportionate look. Instead, the client is left feeling ‘overdone’, which is undesirably visible. Filler dissolver can reverse bad work, i.e., inflated or lumpy appearance; however, if you find the right clinic and achieve the best results to begin with you won’t have to go through the filler dissolving and refilling process! Filler should always be used to enhance your natural features or subtly shape and sculpt areas for a more defined and well-proportioned face.
Which Areas Can You Inject Filler?
Let’s take a look at some of the most popular areas in which filler is used and what it can achieve when used correctly. Remember, you should always do your research and have a consultation before getting any filler injected to avoid the risk of complication or feeling unhappy post-treatment.
Lip filler is a popular treatment right now, and it is one of the treatments Alice is highly sought after thanks to her precision eye for detail, finesse and signature technique. Alice’s clients leave her clinic with pillowy pouts that never look overdone, only rejuvenated, perfectly proportioned and luscious. Knowing what filler is best for lips is important if you want to have soft lips with no hard lumps or other issues related to using the wrong filler and an improper technique. Volift, Smile and Volbella filler from Juvederm are best for lips as they are a softer filler that is perfect for shaping natural-feeling lips. Filler in lips should bring you results that only you can notice and for everyone else to admire unknowingly. If you have had lip filler gone wrong, you can get your lip filler dissolved. This is a common treatment in which Alice undergoes on patients who have not been happy following treatment by another injector.
Have you ever wondered how to get rid of eye bags or tired-looking undereye? Tear troughs are the creases under your eyes which can sometimes give you this appearance due to hollowing and shadows. Filler for under eyes helps to restore the area by reducing the depth of the tear troughs, resulting in a refreshed, fuller and tighter under eye area. Tear trough filler is a great solution to this common concern.
Filler in cheeks can enhance your side and front profile by giving you the appearance of higher and more define cheekbones. The Juvederm fillers typically used for cheeks are ForUltra 4, Voluma or Volux, due to the sturdiness of the product.
You don’t have to go under the knife if you’re unhappy with the shape of your nose! Filler rhinoplasty or filler nose job is a non-surgical treatment using filler to straighten the nose by making injections and reshaping the concerning areas, typically along the bridge. Not only is this a less-invasive procedure with little to no downtime, but it’s also much more cost-effective than a surgical nose job.
For a slimmer more sculpted jawline, jaw filler is an excellent solution. Jaw filler can hide the appearance of a double chin and sagging jowls. When this quick treatment is performed with precision technique, you can see immediate results with little downtime, helping you to feel much more confident about the lower area of your face that tends to sag as we age.
People often get chin filler to balance out facial features, contour and elongate the jawline, giving the appearance of a slimmer face. The heart-shaped side profile is a highly-desired look and chin filler can help one to achieve this. Filler to remove double chin is a popular treatment for those with a cleft chin or chin dimples, completely smoothing out the chin by filler the dented areas.
As we age, our temples lose volume which can create a hollow or gaunt look in the face. This process can speed up for those who are quite active with their fitness. Using filler for temples fills the hollowed areas, returning you to a youthful complexion. The fox eye trend has people wondering if filler in temples lifts eyes.
Filler for nasolabial folds helps to shallow the depth of the smile lines. This fold goes from your nose to your mouth. It’s normal to have a fold or crease in this area, but sometimes when it gets deeper or when the line remains after smiling, it can make us look older than we are. Injecting filler in smile lines evens out the skin volume to give you a smoother appearance.
We hope this blog post has given you new insight into how you can achieve fantastic results using filler. Working with an experienced and reputable injector you can trust means you will leave your appointment feeling confident about your decision and results. Filler aftercare is crucial to mitigate any post-treatment complications and not impact the desired results nor prolong any short-term effects such as bruising. It is advised not to exercise, expose yourself to UV rays or drink alcohol 24-48 hours after your treatment. Avoid touching or laying on the area and keep hydrated. When you have your initial consultation with Alice, she will assess your facial anatomy and explain exactly which filler and technique she recommends tending to your concerning area.
