  • What are Dermal Fillers?
    Dermal fillers are a type of injectable treatment that uses a soft gel made from hyaluronic acid, a substance found naturally in the body. They can be used to add volume and shape to various areas of the face, such as the lips, cheeks, and jawline. They can also be used to fill in wrinkles and lines, such as nasolabial folds (smile lines) and marionette lines (lines from the mouth to the chin). In addition, dermal fillers can be used to reduce the appearance of dark under eye circles and to perform a liquid rhinoplasty, which involves smoothing out bumps on the nose or lifting a drooping nasal tip. While dermal fillers provide long-lasting results, they are not permanent.
  • How long do Dermal Fillers last?
    The duration of dermal filler treatment depends on several factors, such as the viscosity of the filler (thicker fillers are used for deeper areas like the cheeks and jawline), a person's water intake, physical activity level, and the rate at which their body metabolizes the filler. Generally, lip filler lasts from 6 to 12 months, while facial filler lasts from 12 to 18 months. It is recommended to schedule touch-up treatments around the 6 to 12 month mark.
  • Should i do anything before my appointment?
    For best results, it is recommended to avoid blood thinning medication such as ibuprofen and aspirin, Vitamin E and Omega supplements, as well as alcohol for 48 hours prior to your appointment, as taking these will increase the risk of bruising and swelling.
  • Do Dermal Fillers hurt?
    Dermal filler is typically administered using a thin needle and may be described as feeling like light pressure or pinching. To minimize discomfort, a numbing cream is applied to the treatment area and the filler itself often contains a local anesthetic to numb the area during the injection. While some parts of the face may be more sensitive to treatment, the procedure is generally comfortable, and the results are often considered worthwhile.
  • Are there any side effects?
    Mild swelling and/or bruising are the most common side-effects-these are totally normal and will start to subside very quickly. You will be given a copy of our thorough after-care advice which will explain how to speed the healing process up, along with a little after pack which includes a pot of Arnica Gel to reduce any potential bruising. If you are a sufferer of cold sores, there is some evidence to show that injections in the lips may trigger a new cold sore.
  • What Are Fat Dissolve Injections?
    Fat dissolving injections such as Aqualyx, are a fantastic clinically proven injectable solution which break down fat cells on contact, allowing them to be dissolved and passed through the body as waste.
  • How do they work?
    The injections work by breaking down the membranes, or cell walls, of fat cells, causing the fat to be released into the lymphatic system and processed by the liver. This means that the fat is naturally eliminated from the body as waste.
  • How many sessions will i need?
    The effectiveness of treatment varies among clients and depends on the type and stubbornness of fat being targeted, which will be discussed in detail during the consultation. In some cases, results may be visible after a single session, but it is generally recommended to have three sessions in one area for optimal results.
  • Will the treatment be painful?
    There is minimal pain or discomfort when using DesoFace, unlike other fat dissolvers such as Aqualyx.
  • Is Profhilo the same as Dermal Fillers?
    Profhilo is also made from hyaluronic acid like dermal fillers, but the purified form of hyaluronic acid in Profhilo is not crosslinked, meaning it has less structure under the skin. This allows Profhilo to spread out slightly at the injection points and sit flat under the skin, providing overall hydration and plumpness. In contrast, dermal fillers have a firmer structure at the injection points, allowing them to be used to add shape and definition to specific areas.
  • Does it hurt?
    Profhilo is injected just below the surface of the skin using a very fine needle and does not require the use of a numbing cream. The treatment itself is quick, taking only a few minutes from start to finish. Most clients describe the sensation as a light scratch on entry but do not experience any pain or discomfort.
  • How long does it last?
    The effects of Profhilo typically last for about six months, although this can vary from person to person. Many people find that the excellent results from Profhilo allow them to save money on expensive skincare, facials, and other skin-tightening treatments, as it is an excellent option for anti-aging.
  • Does the injection hurt?
    The injection feels like a little scratch on entry as per a normal vaccination type injection. It is over in seconds and doesn’t need to be numbed, so its a very comfortable treatment with no downtime at all.
  • How often do i need B12 Injections?
    We recommend Vitamin B12 injections every 4-6 weeks. Please make us aware if you have a diagnosed B12 deficiency, if you are receiving B12 injections on the NHS or whether you have blood tests coming up in the next few weeks.
  • What is the minimum age?
    You must be 18 to have Vitamin B12 injections with us. If you are younger and suspect a B12 deficiency, or are suffering with any of the above symptoms, please contact your GP.
