Facial fillers are a type of facial injectable that literally fill in a wrinkle using a synthetic of natural ingredient. Although facial fillers can be made of different ingredients, they all aim to produce a result that is seen instantly after the procedure. Furthermore, by injecting fillers into specific points on the face, you can achieve effects similar to a facelift whilst avoiding invasive and expensive surgery.

Juvéderm®fillers are temporary hyaluronic acid fillers, which are smooth and long lasting. Young skin is constantly moisturised from within by hyaluronic acid, a protein which is found between the cells of all living organisms and is a component of collagen. Hyaluronic acid absorbs moisture and keeps your skin well hydrated for a youthful look.

As we age, our hyaluronic acid levels naturally decrease, resulting in the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Some lines become wrinkles due to outside factors, for example, sun exposure, diet and years of facial muscle movement. Fat loss can create sagging and turn lines into facial folds too. So fillers can be used to fill out facial lines, wrinkles and creases, and increase volume and definition of the lips and cheeks.

The procedure

The filler gel is injected under the skin in the required area using a fine needle. The gel will then fill facial lines and wrinkles or add subtle volume.

The smooth consistency of the Juvéderm®range allows your therapist to administer them easily and efficiently. They also contain lidocaine to reduce injection pain, for a more comfortable experience.

Are there any side effects?

As a non-invasive solution to ageing skin, there is no downtime associated with this treatment. Immediately after treatment, you may see some redness and swelling at the injection site and it may feel tender to touch. These effects typically disappear within 24 hours. Some clients experience temporary bruising the following week.

How many treatments will I need?

In your initial consultation, your practitioner will determine which and how much filler will be needed to achieve your desired results. Once this has been decided, you should be able to have your procedure in one treatment. Further treatments will be required to maintain results every 9-12 months as the filler product breaks down.

How does it work?

Hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring substance within the body, it is found in the dermis (lower skin levels) and helps to keep skin smooth and hydrated. Hyaluronic acid levels naturally decrease as we age, resulting in visible signs of ageing (sunken cheeks, lines, wrinkles, loss of lip fullness).

Many moisturisers contain hyaluronic acid, but facial fillers containing hyaluronic acid, such as Juvéderm®, are the only way to replenish the hyaluronic acid deep within skin. Juvéderm® fillers mimic the body’s natural hyaluronic acid and, once injected, provide support and structure to the skin, giving a plumped and more youthful appearance.

Skin Health Spa only use certified Juvéderm® Ultra, Juvéderm® Volift, Juvéderm® Volbella and Juvéderm® Voluma fillers. These fillers have a different molecular make-up to other more traditional fillers. 90% of their content is low-molecular-weight hyaluronic acid, meaning the solution integrates fully into the skin and is more mouldable to the facial contours, resulting in the most natural-looking results possible. In comparison, traditional fillers are made with 100% high-molecular-weight hyaluronic acid, meaning they are heavier and can’t be manipulated as easily.
