DERMAL FILLERS

Youthful skin is continuously moisturised from within by hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring sugar. Hyaluronic acid absorbs moisture and keeps your skin well hydrated for a youthful look. As we age, our skin loses hyaluronic acid and fine lines start to appear on the face. Some lines become wrinkles due to outside factors like sun exposure, diet and years of facial muscle movement. Weight loss can also contribute to sagging and turn lines into folds, too. Dermal fillers help replace the volume lost or wrinkles that have formed caused by this by assisting in plumping the skin to restore youth.

How painful is the procedure?

A topical numbing cream EMLA 5% is used to help minimise pain and anaestatise the surface of the lips, this is applied prior to treatment.

The JUVEDERM dermal fillers used contains lidocaine which is a local anesthetic that also assists in numbing the tissue layers that are injected.

The Esho MIDAS tool can also be used created by the world renowned celebrity cosmetic doctor, Dr Esho. This revolutionary tool has been used by Dr Esho to help sculpt and position lips whilst making some of his famous lip augmentations. The sculpting MIDAS T bar has a vibrating function which reduces sharp pain from needle injections by the action of vibration, pressure and cooling from the T bar. This is based on the gate way theory of pain. By occupying those pain pathway gates with other sensations (like vibrations, pressure and heat), the feeling of injections are able to slip by our neurological pathways ie minimising pain.

The time frames stated on our website for filler durability should be used as a guideline only. There is no guarantee the filler will last for the durations stated above. Several sessions may be needed to achieve your desired results. This is impossible for us to determine as it’s down to an individuals anatomy and lifestyle factors that are out of Jennifer Smith Aesthetics control. Filler is a buildable product and it may take multiple sessions to achieve your desired result. Asymmetry is a normal part of the healing process and is to be expected, there may be uneven areas of the face due to some areas taking better to filler than others. It is always possible for an individual to have a poor response from dermal fillers.
