As time goes by our skin starts to display signs of aging, some of which are easier to hide than others. One such sign of aging is fine lines around the nose and the mouth which cannot be disguised with makeup and can appear worse due to several factors such as lifestyle, UV exposure and excess use of the facial muscles. At the London Cosmetic Clinic we specialise in anti-aging solutions using the very best filler products on the market.
The dermal fillers we primarily use for lines around the nose and mouth are Restylane and Juvederm. These are both sterile gels that aren’t animal or human derived and consist of hyaluronic acid. As hyaluronic acid is naturally found in the body, it is biocompatible and highly unlikely to cause an adverse reaction. It is also biodegradable, unlike surgically implanted fillers. As well as just plumping out the skin, hyaluronic acid gives the skin elasticity and doesn’t give the rigid, ‘sticking out’ effect of implanted fillers.
Before your procedure we will assess your face, the depth and position of the lines and discuss your desired results. We typically treat marionette lines, smokers’ lines, drooping mouth corners and nose-to-mouth lines but as everyone’s face is different, we tailor the treatment precisely to you, both in where the fillers are injected and the amount used. On the day of your treatment a numbing agent will be applied 15-30 minutes beforehand and you can hold a hand mirror whilst the filler is injected so you have complete control of your results.
There are so many benefits of using hyaluronic-based fillers for diminishing the appearance of lines and wrinkles; it is naturally found in the body so there is very little chance of a reaction, it is flexible, it is biodegradable so over time will disappear and it’s a non-invasive treatment so you have no scars, no anaesthetic and no prolonged recovery time. Our dermal fillers give a renewed youth around the nose and mouth areas and the results can last up to 18 months. After then, it’s up to you whether you have the treatment repeated or not.
