Here at MBNS we use a range of dermal fillers for our patients. The dermal filler we select is based upon our experience and your requirements. Your nurse will decide which product is right for you following your consultation and after understanding your expectations. Below is an overview of the key products we use at MBNS and the effects a patient can expect.
Restylane® and Perlane® are a range of Hyaluronic Acid based dermal fillers, which safely and effectively reduce lines, folds and wrinkles, contours and create volume and improve skin appearance. They are used to smooth away moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds, such as the lines from your nose to the corners of your mouth (nasolabial folds) or the darker depressions or circles that appear under your eyes (tear troughs). Restylane is the world’s most used, most studied of dermal fillers and has an extensive range of products suited to individual treatment needs. It can hydrate as well as adding volume to your skin without the need for more invasive surgery.
Juvéderm™ is a smooth consistency gel also made of hyaluronic acid (HA). HA is a naturally occurring substance in the skin that also helps add volume and hydration. Your practitioner eases Juvéderm™ injectable gel under the skin, through a specific diameter syringe, to instantly restore your skin’s volume and smooth away facial wrinkles and folds. Typical areas of filling are “smile lines” or “parentheses” called nasolabial folds (these are the creases that run from the bottom of your nose to the corners of your mouth). Juvéderm™ provides a smooth, natural look and feel.
With most of these treatments, friends tend to say things like; “you’re looking well” or “you’re looking relaxed and happy” but few if any will know exactly why!
We also use a dermal filler called Beletero®. It is also a hyaluronic acid filler and is available in three fromulations:
Soft® for superficial line correction, Basic® for medium wrinkle correction and Intense® for deeper wrinkle correction such as nasal labial folds (those lines from the corner of the nose to the corner of the mouth).
When you are discussing your personalised treatment plan with your nurse, she will advise on what would be the best dermal fillers for you.
"For many years I've been unhappy with my lips. Years of smoking took it's toll and left them lined. Having relatively thin lips too (with lines) made them look permanently dehydrated and no end of 'plumping' creams helped. Lipsticks and glosses also drew attention to their state. I'd wanted fillers for a long time but was extremely worried I'd end up with a 'trout pout' or a 'shelf effect'. Well, I needn't have worried. Marea did a fantastic and very gradual effect. The process was also reversible should I not be happy. But I was, I loved it. So much so that when the initial slight swelling went Marea and I felt a little more would complete the look. The fillers were inserted in the right places for my shape of mouth so that they would be slightly fuller, hydrated and did not protrude. A little change has made a big difference. Thank you so very much."
