Non-surgical cosmetic treatments are more common than ever and with the rise in availability, they have become more popular than ever!
While you may not think of attending your local dental surgery to have such a procedure performed, we can assure you that it is perfectly safe. All dentists are trained on facial muscles, nerves and basic facial anatomy, so when you visit a member of our team at Harley Street for non-surgical treatments, we will know what we are doing!
Now, back to the types of treatments we offer. As many people want to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles without undertaking a full facelift, they may wish to have a set of hyaluronic fillers injected. Perfect for plumping the skin, these injections are well known for reducing the signs of ageing instantly, and for offering those who have them injected a long-term solution to wrinkles.
At Harley Street Dental, we are proud of our selection of non-surgical cosmetic options; perfect for topping off that new smile! With our dermal fillers in Harley Street, you can experience a reduction in both fine lines and wrinkles, while not having to worry about non-natural chemicals or derivatives. Perfect!
But what exactly are our dermal fillers in Harley Street made from and how do we know that they are suitable for you? Read on to find out!
Types of injectable fillers
In cosmetic practise today, there are 3 types of filler available- synthetic, human-derived and animal-derived.
Our dermal fillers in Harley Street are synthetic and so, they are suitable for everyone including our vegan customers. Simulating the naturally occurring hyaluronic acid, these are injected into specific areas of your face where they plump the skin. This leads to a reduction in the appearance of deep-set wrinkles, allowing for an instant youthful appearance.
Where can they be injected?
Fillers are generally suitable for injection in certain parts of the face and neck.
More specifically, our team in Harley Street can help to reduce the appearance of wrinkles around the eyes, lips, cheeks, temples, forehead, chin and around the jawline and neck.
At present, you can also have them injected into your hands and elbows too, to reduce the appearance of wrinkles in these 2 commonly affected areas.
Are they safe?
Synthetic hyaluronic acid fillers are Food and Drug Administration approved and are safe for regulated use in both dental clinics and beauty spas.
But as with all medicines which are injected, they are not without risk. You may have an allergic reaction to the chemicals used in the fillers, at which point our team will inject an enzyme to break down the filler in its entirety.
At the site of the injection, you may experience itching, swelling, burning, redness or bruising; this is normal and should be expected with these injections. However, if you have concerns about any of the aforementioned symptoms once the fillers are injected or in the following days contact our team to seek urgent medical advice.
